Contrary to popular belief, decent vintage is not simply a case of wearing any old thing dug up from your Grandma’s dusty attic. Claireinc.com have been a solid testament to this principle, committed to providing an online vintage emporium that pays mind to nothing you may associate with day-raves, mothballs or nasty, frumpy knitwear that someone may or may not have died in.
February 2011 will welcome Claire Incorruptible’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, ‘I found the fountain of youth and I fell in‘, a tightly curated range which encompasses the innocent charm of the 80’s and 90’s, executed boldly and unrelenting to injections of serious colour. Including pieces from Chanel, Moschino, Givenchy, Chloe and Oscar De La Renta, there is time not for arbitrary op-shop fumblings. These pieces were not found by accident, and you can buy them just as intentionally.
