Vintage Dooney & Burke

Dooney & Burke: Before They Went Heinous

This morning we were reminded what Dooney & Burke put out before those blinding monogram knock offs. Our network partner, Fops & Dandies, discovered the structured, preppy bags Dooney & Burke used to produce at a flea market in Brooklyn. These bags remind us of the vintage clutches and bags we've inherited from our mother's and grandmother's wardrobes, that we're sure, in their time, were variations of a more expensive handbag, but surely nothing like the gross knock-offs we know now. In fact, what's nice about them is that they're kind of brand-less; just simple bags for the gal who might not want (or can afford) the latest exotic skin tote bag. Visit any flea market or vintage store and you'll surely find a bag like this, even if it's not a vintage Dooney & Burke. Just like a pair of classic Ferregamo loafers, there are some vintage staples that are neither hard to find nor difficult to incorporate in one's wardrobe. Although we think 'vintage' is not the empire it was a decade ago (thanks to Uniqlo, American Apparel, Topshop, and H&M), we still appreciate the fact that there is something to be had for less than fifty dollars that will spark up your wardrobe in a pinch.
