Vintage Style is A Go-Go

August 22, 2013
Revival a Go-Go

Stylishly looking back has never been so fashion-forward, especially with seemingly all of today’s pop culture focusing the rearview mirror squarely on simpler, more wholesome times, when hems were longer and jaws squarer. Chicago’s Pilsen district is certainly no stranger to this trend, with uber-popular thrifters Comet Vintage and Knee Deep already firmly established, and proving there’s no end to throwback-style in sight, onto the scene now pops charming new pre-loved boutique Revival a Go-Go.

When owner (and former Comet employee) Cammie Christopher sought to set up her own space, it was with the intention to pack it top to toe with hand-curated stock she herself loved and that reflected her own style. So with a storage room-full of pieces collected over the years, a decidedly 1960s bent, and a shop space fit-out with bright yellow and teal paint, vintage signs and groovy ephemera, Revival was born this summer. Here shoppers will find mid-century furniture and home accessories, tableware, hand-embellished dresses and retro-chic men’s shirts, jewellery, scooters, artwork, vintage movie posters and even decorative and functional salvaged-wood pieces from her designer brother Rob Christopher’s company Emotive Reclaim. Whether for a fashion makeover or just a bit of fun, vintage style is definitely a Go-Go.
