Q: Describe your boutique in one sentence.

A: Era and brand specific garments/accessories with a high level of cultural and design significance.

Q: How did you get into collecting Vintage clothes and accessories?

A: I was obsessed with Nike Airs as a kid and used to spend hours cutting the pictures out of my mum’s Littlewoods catalogue to cover my school books. I got my first pair in 1994 and was so fascinated by the fact that they had air in the sole that I cut into them with a saw to see exactly how they worked!

In 1996 my dad took me to New York. I was awestruck. We went to Marshall’s department store and the range of amazing designers sent me into meltdown. My Dad very kindly let me bring back a suitcase full of stuff, from Tommy Hilfiger to Ralph Lauren.

I rocked up back at school, dressed head to toe in new designs.

Q: What vintage periods does your stock come from?

A: Our eyewear includes styles from the ‘50s right through to the late ‘90s, whilst our other clothing and accessories ranges include pieces from the late ‘70’s onwards.
