Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I had quite an insane weekend…
A while back I visited the most amazing vintage boutique in Melbourne- ML Vintage, owned by the pioneer of Australian impors fashion business, Mary Lipshut. Mary, and her sister Edith were the first to bring the best Italian designers such as Gianni Versace, Roberta di Camerino, Courreges, Valentino, Pucci, Krizia, Missoni and many many more to Australia. Her collections have been archived to perfection and shoppers are welcome to make an appointment to come and choose their favourites. I know for a fact that many Australian designers shop there :)
Absolutely MINT Vintage. Did I mention that I drooled a lot?
Roberta di Camerino may not be a household name anymore. But this Italian designer was the first to invent using tapestry material for ladies’ purses. She won many awards for her pioneering ideas. Way to go Roberta! The Sixty Group (who owns Miss Sixty) has bought her label and when I went to view the collection last year in Milan, it definitely had plenty of youthful energy injected into all the new bags and accessories!
One of my favourite outfits- the colour is heaven. It may be a vintage outfit, but pleats and burnt orange? They are so right now!
Thank you Karen for taking all of these beautiful photos. If you’re in need for some fashion inspiration, and lust for high end vintage pieces that are made by the original desginers of the couture houses, pay Mary a visit at Suite 3/ 7 Almeida Crs South Yarra VIC 3141.
