Vintage is full of treasures of unparalleled quality, and we have unearthed the crème de la crème of these nuggets just for you! Discover the iconic pieces of your future wardrobe:
1 - A leather jacket
A timeless, summer and winter. Perfecto, motorcycle jacket, blazer…
To wear on a very simple outfit to give it structure and allure or layering in winter to warm up a coat with style.
2 - An oversized blazer
Another jacket! Taken from the men's wardrobe, the oversized suit blazer offers a multitude of look possibilities. Choose a blazer in a neutral color for more versatility, and in a nice material (wool, cotton or acrylic blend!) For the winter, there are very fine cashmere jackets that will keep you very warm! Perfect over a dress, skirt, shorts or trousers: the blazer will give you that boyish and ultra-stylish je-ne-sais-quoi.
3 - A denim skirt
Short, midi, long, faded or in raw canvas: the denim skirt is not ready to leave our dressing rooms. To wear with a pretty leather belt for a worked look and to marry with a trainer, a boot or even a pretty moccasin in mid-season!
4 - A pair of leather boots

5 - A nice leather bag
Ultra-practical basic, the small leather bag (black, camel or colored according to your preference) is the little BFF in our wardrobe. It matches with all styles, will enhance a streetwear look or compliment a dressier outfit. Choose it with a secure closure and an adjustable handle!
6 - A man's shirt
The shirt is a timeless classic that can be worn with everything from jeans to dress pants. Be sure to invest in a quality shirt that will be comfortable and durable and won't wrinkle too much in the wash! Our favourites: Pierre Cardin shirts (men's cut). You're welcome.
7 - Raw jeans
Quality jeans are an essential piece in any wardrobe. It can be worn with a t-shirt for a casual look or with a dress shirt for a more sophisticated look, sneakers or pumps... The most important thing is that it highlights your back (if you see what we mean.... 🍑) Our advice: choose small pockets to increase the volume of the buttocks and vice versa!
