Back To The Future
With fashionistas and celebrities the world over stepping out in the most current designer style, one simple way to avoid same outfit shame is to take a whirl back in time, sidestepping the new collections and opting instead for hard-to-find vintage one-offs.
Thankfully, this task no longer demands hours spent rummaging in a stuffy roomful of bell-bottomed nightmares, with Los Angeles now home to Mark Haddawy and Katy Rodriguez’s sublime, minimalist, white and pale wood pre-loved style haven, Resurrection.
Though the boutique is bursting with couture galore, each item is neatly arranged by colour and cut to make style hunting all too easy. Their list of stocked designers reads like the pages of Vogue, with Dior fur coats, funky Vivienne Westwood tees, Moschino printed blazers and floral silks by Valentino.
There are even biker chick leathers from Versace, exquisite YSL gowns and a selection of beaded bustiers by D&G just waiting to be paired with Louboutin red-soled stilettos. As for Chanel, indulge your addiction with the whole luxurious shebang of red carpet-worthy dresses, quilted bags and glitzy jewellery. Can’t make it in-store? Thanks to hip online antique and design specialist 1stDibs.com, now hot, new (well, new to you) spring fashion essentials are just a click away!
