There are things that can’t be imitated or reproduced the same way old things were. There’s so much history to be found behind an ‘antique’ creation, sometimes the past of it can’t be retraced, which makes it all the more special. It leaves a lot to imagination – who wore this item before me? Who adopted it as their own? The story could be decoded in a million ways, but you will never really know unless you have a sort of testimony. Most importantly though, is the emotion and feeling of the product that has been carried along with its story.
I must confess that I have a weakness for vintage, especially it comes from my mom’s closet. A lot of the time I’ll be wearing her clothes (we’re somewhat the same size, to her satisfaction) so a lot of the creations are out of date but still stylish and really special because it’s been through so much already. I give it life through my appropriation of it, just like my mom had done so before.
