Vintage is making a comeback once again! As seen in many trends, mixing vintage clothes with new and dipping into the old grandad jumper pile can sure make for a look that will have heads turning, without costing you a months wages! The Retail Solent Initiative (Re:So) store in The Marlands has all you could ever dream of in the way of vintage and new clothes and accessories.
So, if you haven’t heard of Re:So or ever been inside, it’s basically this cool shop that is run by students and sells everything from clothing to artwork, also all made exclusively by the students from Southampton Solent University. They had a really successful range of vintage clothing last year so this year they created ‘The Shed’ and decided to hold a catwalk show and invite us bloggers a long for a preview of the clothes (and first dibbs) and a vino.
The clothes were selected by a group of the students as a buying role from all around the UK and brought back for our enjoyment in Southampton. There were some amazing fur coats, leather jackets and cool shirts but being on a budget i had to restrict myself!! The catwalk show also showed some great looks for men and women made up of ‘The Shed’ items. I purchased a browny/green leotard that was just £10 and i absolutely love it!
If you want to shop the collection, pop upstairs in The Marlands and come into the shop by Costa Coffee.
