Paris Shopping – Paris Vintage Shopping
Informed collectors and amateur lovers of things vintage and beautiful will be heading for the Salon du Vintage’s fourth event in Paris this November. Those who love vintage clothing and accessories will enjoy this fair and from the queue at the last show in April, it seems that there are a lot of fans.
Apart from hunting down your bargain vintage clothing, accessories and furniture at Salon du Vintage, visitors will also be able to see a retrospective of the “past revisited” from select pieces of vintage fashion, accessories and furniture that have been re-created to contemporary designs.
On the furniture front, you can see that the Tam Tam stool created by Henri Massonet in 1968 has a new life as i-Tam Tam, a creation by Branexdesign in collaboration with Apple – yes, the stool comes with an Apple i-phone. Fritz Hansen’s colourful egg chair is a re-creation of the famous Egg chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958. The modern chair is covered with fabric that’s been sourced during the creator’s voyages.
The corset which was imported by Catherine of Medici in 1552 has its influence in a dress by Dolce Gabbana, a leather bodice by Yves Saint Laurent and a bustier at the House of Fendi.
Then there are accessories like fashion shoes, casual shoes and watches.
