VIDEO: Vintage Shopping Tips From VOGUE’s Hamish Bowles

Vintage shoppers know that there’s nothing like finding a hidden gem while combing the racks for fashionable finds. You go in with looking for one thing and stumble upon a random must-have piece — such as a leather pencil skirt or a unique statement necklace — and it’s love at first sight.

Even the pros — and when I say pros, I mean fashion industry vets with some serious street cred — find their best wardrobe staples while out on a vintage hunt. Believe it or not, this even includes VOGUE magazine’s international editor-at-large Hamish Bowles, who’s such a dapper dude. In the clip below from his online series, “Vintage Bowles,” he makes a pit stop at one of his favorite Parisian vintage dealers and stumbles upon a super stylish (and timeless) linen summer suit by Dior with intricate hand embroidery and other designer goodies.

Here’s a peek at how the VOGUE editor decides what’s worth the splurge and what should stay on the racks:

Keep it stylish,

Andrea, S&P Founder and Editor
