The new is no longer in fashion. Style and creativity through the way we dress is redefining luxury for the modern wardrobe.  Sustainability, the environmental damage of production, and the human cost of excessive production is forcing us to rethink the way we consume clothing.  And vintage just might be the answer.

With the global lockdown there has been no thrifting, no popping down to your favourite vintage store or having a good rummage in your local charity shop. Because of this, shopping for vintage has shifted to the digital space, with a host of boutiques offering unique points of view with hand picked curations.

Ramona Deckers and Tess van Rooijen show us in this editorial vintage is just as good if not better than brand new! All pieces are one of a kind so rather than all buying the same item of clothing, there is an opportunity for individualism and self expression. And what’s more it’s one of the guilt free ways to enjoy fashion.

To get you started there are the online staples of Rokit and Beyond Retro which reflect current trends at affordable prices, Depop for the Instagram obsessed, Vestiare Collective for those special designer pieces you may have missed the first time around. And our faithful old friend Oxfam Online always has some gems. Here is a rundown of ALSO’s favourite online vintage and second hand stores
