In the market for some vintage Chanel or Dior threads? McArthurGlen Designer Outlet’s Vintage Fashion Fair should be top of your to-do list.
Iconic style is about to meet contemporary fashion as the designer outlet has paired up with A.N.G.E.L.O (The Italian King of vintage) for a series of exclusive pop-ups showcasing vintage fashion collections alongside a curated Timeless Style exhibition, celebrating style through the ages.
The A.N.G.E.L.O Vintage palace in Milan is a vintage clothing Mecca for fashion editors and collectors all over the world, housing the largest and most renowned archive of vintage fashion in Europe. So the news that the vintage emporium was coming to the UK had us more than a little excited.
Kicking off at Swindon Designer Outlet on 30th April – 17th May before continuing to York Designer Outlet from 21st May-7th June, the pop up exhibition at each centre will celebrate statement fashions that have made their mark in the history books. The vintage hook up allows you to cast your style eye over A.N.G.E.L.O’s hand picked treasures of the fashion world, from the iconic Gucci Bamboo bag and Yves Saint Laurent safari jacket, to the ageless Chanel quilted chained bag. There will also be a rare edit of striking designs worn by celebrity idols including: 60’s pin-up Jane Fonda, Marilyn Monroe and the original bespoke, hand-made Hermes bag inspired and created for Jane Birkin. Pretty cool, huh?
To coincide with the exhibit both outlets will host an A.N.G.E.L.O pop up boutique where vintage lovers can snap up stunning vintage pieces from the likes of Chanel, Hermes, Dior, Versace and Celine. Yep, we thought that might get your attention.
The ultimate LBD, a classic leather bag, the perfect fitting pair of jeans – some things never of out of fashion. Celebrating style that stands the test of time, the festival is the perfect opportunity to update your wardrobe with iconic vintage designs from the most desirable fashion houses.
We’ve already got our eye on the gold Chanel mini bag and green Celine blouse – the perfect partner for skinnies and a pair of statement flats. When it comes to Dior’s offerings, we’re totes crushing on the round patterned sunnies (they’re like, so this season) and that Christian Dior vintage beauty case – well of course our make-up deserves a good home!
The McArthurGlen Vintage Fashion Fair runs from 30th April – 7th June.
