What Is Modern Vintage Fashion?

Modern Vintage Navy PlaysuitShopping for vintage fashion has long been a favourite hobby for vintage fashionistas all over the world. Whether you’re gathering at a vintage weekender or simply scanning the rails at thrift stores, the craze for finding unique and authentic vintage pieces has reached a peak in recent years.

However, shopping for authentic vintage clothing has its disadvantages. First off, you’ve got a lot of sifting through piles of not-so-cute garments ahead of you before you find the dream piece you’ve been looking for, and may even leave your thrift sesh empty handed! The second problem is that, if you’re no good with a little DIY magic or you simply can’t handle a needle and thread, your cute vintage outfit may just end up looking like a drab throwback.

Fear not, vintage fashion gal! Modern vintage fashion is racing to the rescue. Not everyone can be lucky enough to find the vintage clothing piece of their dreams just hanging out in their local charity shop, and have you seen the prices of authentic vintage clothing being sold online nowadays? That’s an ebay war we just can’t face.

Instead of all the sweat and tears, vintage reproduction retailers such as us vintage loving gals at Collectif are able to step in and offer you authentic vintage styles with a contemporary twist.

That’s the beauty of modern vintage fashion.

Modern vintage fashion can sometimes be confused with the mainstream fashion world influences that sometimes draw on inspiration from decades gone by such as the 90s – we actually aim to reproduce classic styles from eras such as the 1940s and 1950s that could genuinely be mistaken for the real thing! The difference with our vintage clothing is that it not only satisfies your craving for vintage style, but also meets the high standards and expectations of the fashion world in the 21st century.
