Vintage Clothes

The term 'vintage' on the collectors' market generally encompasses items of notability or high quality from past decades. This title is particularly common for posters, cars, furniture, watches, jewellery and fashion. Vintage clothing is often defined as clothing which is at least 20 years old, dating back to the 1920s; garments before this time are generally considered antique. Certain vintage clothing and accessories are coveted for their designer status, such as the Chanel 2.55 bag or Hermès iconic silk scarves. In 2011, a vintage Christian Dior evening gown and matching handbag - both adorned with silver-encrusted brocade - owned by the late Elizabeth Taylor sold for $362,500 at auction with Christie's, New York. The sustainability of purchasing vintage clothing has increased its popularity in recent years, with environmentally-conscious consumers opting for preowned, unique pieces over mass-produced 'fast fashion'.
