Fashion Flashes Back with The Gap, House of Harlow & Decadestwo
Eighties and nineties references aren’t the only retro influences surfacing in fashion these days. The Gap is looking to relive 1969 with its relaunch of the brand’s iconic 1969 collection. Meaning, “come August, the Gap customer will have access to perfectly faded boyfriend jeans, rinse-wash skinnies, vintage-inspired bell-bottoms, and an elegant extra-long boot-cut — all in premium denim fits,” says Style.com. And, perhaps the best part of the Gap being stuck in the past: All looks will be outfitted with $69 price tags.
Meanwhile, the look book images from Nicole Richie’s jewelry line for House of Harlow 1960 have leaked, and, as the brand’s moniker implies, the baubles are all infused with a distinctly hippie-chic vibe. Richie models her own designs for the look book, wearing an assortment of print-heavy, flow-y frocks, to accent and emphasize the oversized House of Harlow jewels.
And good news for NYC-based vintage lovers: Decadestwo, the LA designer vintage boutique that Hollywood has long sworn by, is setting up shop in Manhattan this spring. “They’ve acquired a small space above Soho’s Kiki de Montparnasse and collected 2,000 pieces of designer clothes, jewelry, bags and shoes to sell to (new)vintage hungry New Yorkers,” says Fashionista. The store will be open from May 14-17. Also in stock will be frocks donated by Richie’s former stylist-turned-frenemie-turned friend Rachel Zoe, who “donated a good chunk of her closet,” sales of which will go to benefit a Detroit-based charity.
