You would think the vintage style was left behind in the 1950s but think again, it’s coming back and it’s on the rise.
More and more shops are popping up in and around Brighton that are bringing back the funky shabby chic look.
Especially as the summer season is coming around soon which means festivals are on the way and there’s nothing better than rocking retro on the field to your favourite artists.
Brighton’s North Laines has the best selection of shabby shops including little market stalls of handmade items such as jewellery and much more. A shop called To Be Worn Again also holds monthly kilo sales around Brighton and London where you can grab a bargain.
So how does vintage become vintage? Well we could say vintage is everywhere, once the latest thing becomes out of date it effectively becomes vintage. We all get older as the younger population replace the older generation and fashion and furniture and other things become ‘out of date’ but the fun thing about vintage is that it can come back even 60 years later.
