I recently had the pleasure of being invited to a breakfast at Beyond Retro to find out what's coming up for Spring/Summer 2013. Over a cup of tea and croissant, we were shown the range and different trends that are set to come, and my goodness are you in for a treat!
For us vintage ladies, there really is a bit of everything to take our pick from. The swinging sixties are back, with monochrome and graphic prints a plenty, right through to bright coloured, smock mini dresses from Beyond Retro's in house label. This label is focused on upcycling vintage garments into key pieces, with their beautiful smock dresses priced very reasonably around £35.
Think delicate lace, ruffles and sheer prints for the upcoming Thrills and Frills collection. Original vintage pieces have been carefully selected to create a collection that will allows you to incorporate a vintage style into your daily life, if you don't already.
Rockabilly style can also be sourced from Beyond Retro over the upcoming months. Their Varsity collection is focused on baseball tops, bomber jackets and all things Americana. Nautical too, with their in house label stocking sailor shorts and tops.
Not to forget the gentlemen, they can choose from the upcoming Knit About The Boy range which focuses on 1940's style cardigans, knitted vests and jumpers. The (ah-a) Prints Charming collection features a range of vintage silk shirts, with graphic and paisley prints a plenty. The ladies are catered for by the in house label, with a range of cut of silk shirts, shorts and skirts!
I fancy this with some capri pants!
Don't forget to visit their Brighton store on Vine Street, tomorrow 10-6pm to get either an existing, or new, piece of clothing embroidered with your choice of traditional tattoo designs! I will be heading over in the afternoon.
With lots of vintage love,
