Something old…something new

Vintage is still in vogue. In a fast-moving fashion industry, trends come and go. Yet fashionistas have taken vintage to their hearts and vintage has created it’s own niche – and it’s here to stay.

An enduring essence of style that transcends time, a more ecologically-friendly way to shop or often just a thrifty way to bag a designer label, shopping for vintage clothing can be as fun as fancy dress – or as serious as collecting art.

To see what it’s all about, visit one of the many vintage fashion markets that are popping up in London and in major cities around the UK.

Primrose Hill will be the venue for a vintage fashion fair this Sunday. With vintage holiday looks including gorgeous swimsuits and playsuits, retro hair styling and make up and tasty homemade food at The Nice Green Café, it makes a great day out. Visit http://www.vintagefashionfairlondon.co.uk/ for more info.

When it comes to shoes, most of us prefer to buy them new. And with good reason as it’s not good for your feet to wear shoes that have shaped to another’s foot – and it’s not terribly hygienic either!

However in celebration of all things vintage, we present you with our Ecco guide to Ecco styles to wow with your latest vintage find…

This sandal has a retro, urban edge to it. Great with shorts or skirts, these are a cute look to add to your capsule wardrobe.

Ecco Border More

A sandal with character, yet understated enough to offset an array of clashing patterns – as is typical in true vintage styling.

We can’t give you something old, you’ll have to visit the vintage markets for that. But, at Ecco Shoes, we can give you something new that has the classic quality and styling every vintage style-hunter seeks.
