Vintage Transformation


I passed this shop three times on three different days last week, before finally and excitedly finding the door open. Yves Andrieux and Vincent J Albert have been busy opening their second Parisian boutique, on the left bank. While this one which also houses their atelier is in the Rue Charlot. They specialize in transforming all kinds of vintage textiles into tempting goodies, from mens and womens wear to accessories and home furnishings.



Gaudy printed 50's curtain fabrics are contrasted with military surplus, all around the atmospheric boutique the raw materials are piled up and used to create levels to display and frame the innovative products.


These Patchwork floor cushions and tote bags are made from old army kit bags.



A collection of t-shirts with appliques of chunky vintage lace and crochet. Unfortunately (for me) they only come in womens sizes.
