It's tops in the fast fashion realm, and now Topshop is foraying into the vintage arena. Sweet!
Yesterday it launched Archive, an area dedicated to one-of-a-kind vintage finds - think Lanvin, Chloe, and Dior from the sixties and seventies, as well as London labels from the same eras like Lee Bender for Bus Stop, Biba, Mary Quant, Jean Veron, Ossie Clark, and Strawberry Studio. The clothes come from everywhere, vintage fairs to Ebay, and prices run from about $131 for a minidress to $1,000 for an Ossie Clark gown. Just what I need - another place to make the vintage hound in me drool!
