Hello, Hello Everyone. I hope you are all doing well and are in the mood for a fashion post today!
As you can probably tell from reading this blog and by the theme of most of my posts… I love vintage (its a no brainer), so it makes perfect sense that the majority of my money would go on vintage items, more specifically vintage clothes. Although I adore original vintage clothes, I am also obsessed with reproduction brands such as Voodoo Vixen, Lindy Bop, and you guessed it by the title, Collectif!
Originating as a stall on Camden Market, Collectif has done more than established itself over the last 18 years and now has three shops in London and one in Brighton and more recently has started to hold more events such as the Collectif 18th Birthday party which I attended back in November. Since its such household name, it is, therefore, no surprise that it is a firm favorite of those in the vintage community (me included) and I often myself on their website or ‘just popping’ in-store to look for the next vintage-themed item to catch my eye (which isn’t hard)
If that hasn’t sold Collectif to you, then I bet there Big Sale will! Now when I say sale…. I don’t mean one or two naff things on a rack, I mean a maHOOSIVE explosion of vintage goodness which never ceases to end (now that is my kind of sale) Unlike many other stores, Collectif doesn’t reserve special stock to bring out in the sale oh no, if you found yourself loving, say a blouse a month or so ago but thought… ‘hmm that’s a little pricey’ then the Collectif sale will not fail you. SO many of these items I have been lusting after for a while, so when I saw them in the sale at such low prices.. you bet I thrust myself upon them .
So again, its rather unsurprising that after I decided to purchase a few bits in the sale online I naturally found myself in their Commercial street store…buying more…and then I may or may not have fallen into their Camden store… possibly again buying more…..and so my friends, after a number of Collectif trips I have accumulated some gorgeous new items to kick off the new year in style with!
Side note: I havent actually worn any of these items yet, so apologises if they look a bit crumpled but its because they are brand new and have not yet had the lurvvving washing machine and ironing treatment they shall soon receive.
So guys, thats it for my Collectif haul. I really hope you enjoyed seeing my goodies, let me know below if you are a fellow Collectif fan and if you got anything in the big sale too!
