If you’re a fashion designer or a hardcore vintage aficionado you have either worked with Paradox or hopelessly hankered for their closet. They are a “Vintage Archive of Garments and Textiles – styling service and design inspiration source of fabric manipulations, prints, and silhouettes or shapes.” Basically a mecca of inspiration for anyone who’s looking for the extraordinarily unique, and willing to pay for it. Their floors were never open to the simple shopper, until late last year, when they established Morphew, the on-line retailer that made a big chunk of their collection available for purchase. Yay!
I visited for the first time two weeks ago, and put together a selection of 4th of July fun bits for you! Have you seen those red/white/blue boots?? And the smiley faces shorts/dress?? No need to thank me. Just shop to your heart’s desire and celebrate your stars and stripes!
