Retro Inspiration from London Fashion Week SS16

We’d be a little hypocritical at Judy HQ if our personal wardrobes weren’t at least 90% vintage, but we’re sure we’re not alone in getting a wee bit excited everytime LondonFashion Week rolls around. A veritable whos-who of front-rowers, the street style, the soundtracks and wacky hair and makeup…we love it all! While we were not lucky enough to attend London Fashion Week ourselves this year, we did enjoy picking our favourite retro-inspired styles out on the Vogue website. Tres chic…

orla kiely ss16Orla Kiely
Kilo Manager Jenessa is a huge fan of Orla Kiely and her 60s-inspired floral prints, so it was no surprise to find her coveting almost everything from the collection! Set amongst a crazy golf scene, purple pastels held their own against vibrant yellows and of course, THAT clarks footwear collaboration. We best get saving our pennies…

holly fulton ss16Holly Fulton
Feeling more seventies? Studio Fulton is your place to be. We loved the autumn-pallette-meets-summer-shapes that makes this collection so wearable all year round. Catch us in that flare and blouse combo…or maybe a statement dress or two…we can’t decide!

jeremy scott moschino ss16

Jeremy Scott
Lead designer at Moschino, Jeremy Scott has been a kitsch favourite for a while. This season, he took things to the 80s height of Barbie once more, contrasting with edgy prints and neon colours. Not for the faint-hearted, but those electric blue boots have our heart.

The colours, the prints, the super-cool models…we’re in love with everything about this Italian accessory designers collection. While the emphasis was on the shoes and bags, we can’t help but wish they’d whip up those pinafores for consumer sale as well…we want every colour!

Feeling inspired to grab some fashion-forward garments for your wardrobe? We’ve got a vast calendar of kilo sales and fashion fairs to get you kitted out in the sort of retrowear that will be influencing the catwalks for years to come. Let’s face it, vintage never goes out of style! Check our events tab for more information.

Scotland Ahoy!

Greetings vintage fans!

The wind in our hair. Dusty on the speakers. Vans packed like sardine cans filled with vintage bits – it’s official, we LOVE a road trip! This very afternoon, we’re off on a spot of travelling, bringing our vintage fair to one of our all-time faves – EDINBURGH! Part of the official Fringe festival festivities, we’re filling Lothian Road’s Picture House with a spot of this (and couldn’t resist sharing…)

Salvating? We thought so! If you’re in the neighbourhood, come say hello and if not, click here to see if we’ll be seeing you soon!

Retro Regards,

Bright Young Things at Cambridge

Greetings Vintage Fans!

Bringing all the glamour of the 1930s to the Guildhall last Saturday, we were STUNNED [yes jaw-on-the-floor STUNNED] by these gorgeous original ’30s gowns from Charlotte Rose Vintage…

With Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ only months away, we wish we’d bought them so that we could Charleston around a la Carey Mulligan all the way home!

 

Retro Regards,
