Lady Vintage: 100% Handmade Vintage Inspired Clothing from Germany
Lady Vintage is a made-to-order label based in Germany that specializes in rockabilly fashion. The stylistic similarities of vintage and pinup clothing from this era is executed exquisitely.
Even from reading the descriptions of each piece and perusing through the handful photos, you can tell the designer has a passion for retro fashion, has a keen eye for detail and puts high quality in the forefront.
The selection of Lady Vintage designs available are limited, but don’t let that scare you away. There’s a heavy emphasis on sailor style, polka dots and pinup inspired clothing that has just the right amount of the Stepford Wife influence.
You’ll find recognizable cinched waistlines, classic halter tops and standard skater skirts present throughout the collection. There’s also a nice element of surprise with a simple pencil skirt and retro style western blouse in the mix of dainty dresses and tops.
What’s special about Lady Vintage pieces is that each garment is actually produced at the time you place an order. The problem with factory-made clothing is the lack of detachment between the designer, retailer and the customer. In this case, you’ll interact directly with Lady Vintage, because they will email you as soon as your order has begun production and when it’s been shipped.
One might think high quality clothing made exclusively would be costly, but the garments are actually reasonably priced. Expect the total waiting period from production to shipping to take roughly two weeks. If you’d rather pick-up your order after the item is completed, the website also allows you to choose this option.
It’s exciting to anticipate what’s new to come from Lady Vintage, who draws inspiration from the 1950s rock and roll lifestyle. Keep an eye out for a collection of rockabilly and rockabella t-shirts, which are projected to come soon to the site. Merchandise pieces like these will be shipped as soon as payment is made. Purchases from this gives rockabellas and pinups a special feeling of individuality, which is something that’s cherished when you choose to embrace retro inspired fashion.
