Then & Now - The Vintage Originals and Their Modern, Vintage-Inspired Counterparts

It's no secret that many designers and brands look to the past for inspiration. Here's a few of our favorite pre-fall items that have just landed in the shops.

On the right we featured the original vintage item that could have inspired the new item on the left. Plus, not only are the vintage items one-of-a-kind, ensuring you will have a trendy item that's also unique, but also sustainable and less expensive.

These are what we call scores indeed...
