I don't wear vintage nearly as much as I used to for a number of reasons: My style has evolved since staring this blog, it's become harder to find, and much of what appeals to me is rather delicate or on the verge of destruction. Lots of vintage wearers are fine with the last fact, and that's great, but for me its more about achieving the classic look, than wearing something authentic for the sake of being authentic.
Amazingly enough one woman, Sandra Murphy, is behind this label. She's based in New York, and uses vintage patterns, fashion magazines, and fabrics to inspire her designs. I love how timeless her style is, it's the kind of fresh, quality frocks that you could build a wardrobe around. The garments are made in New York, which is just another reason I love the label.
Below are photos from this years s/s collection, and the above photo is an exclusive of the upcoming f/w collection (which I'm totally in love with). Righ now Recollection is avialable in select New York stoes, but Sandra is working towards making her work available online.
Of course starting an online store takes a heavy amount of work and funds, which she's hoping you can help out with. Visit Indiegogo to contribute even a small amount to launch this label online. I'd love to see it take off, I think it's something that would be appreciated by modern and vintage lovers alike.
So explore the beautiful photos and deigns on Recollection for instant inspiration, and if you can, click here to contribute to making the f/w collection available online.
