What is it about vintage denim that we love so much?
So winter is officially over and it's not too early to start scanning summer look-books. With the 90's grunge vibe making a strong comeback this year, it is inevitable that denim is going to be huge!
I would be lying if I said I hadn't developed a slight (definite) vintage-denim-fetish over the last few weeks; the more rugged-looking the better! I have been stocking up on my vintage denims in time for summer and will be using my nimble fingers to customise them and hopefully get them up on the site!
So what I'm focusing on for the time being is jackets, shirts and shorts (or cut-offs). When customising, I keep it simple, sticking with studs, pastel dyes, back patches and fabric attachments.
On my trip to Amsterdam this year, I was lucky to stumble upon a shop called 'Episode'...a cheeky little vintage goldmine! Episode also has stores in Paris and London, and stocks only the best in vintage and alternative fashion. From converse to cowboy boots and suedes to leathers, I couldn't help but spend a huge chunk of my time (and money!) in here. I left with this lot (^) and couldn't have been happier. Service was friendly and the vibe was very chilled out and positive. I would recommend this to anyone looking for some unique and quirky vintage finds to add to their wardrobe!
Well I'm off to start creating my mini denim workshop now...but before I go...I'll just let you know that we now have instagram! Just follow us on 'damnedvintageuk' and keep track of what we get up to through the coming weeks!
Bye for now!
