Blog - Marion’s Flea Fashion Redux
Our fashion vendor-blogger on market trends, from Flea to runway.
The approach of this Sunday’s Mad Men mini-season ender is bittersweet. We’re dying to know what happens, but the end of the vintage parade makes us sad—so in honor of this weekend’s wrap-up, we recap some memorable looks, many of which can be found… you guessed it … at the Flea!
Pirate Style was all over the fashion week runways. And seriously, what could be cooler for spring than the grubby allure of the leather vests, unisex boho tops, worn linens, and “tribal” jewelry? If you want to get on board, the Flea is a veritable treasure trove of pirate booty.
If the novel approach some Paris show goers took to toting their credits cards, phones, and lip balm is any indication, the book clutch, made to look like vintage tomes, will be the go-bag of the coming season.
The Flea has always been a source of inspiration for both local designers and Fashion Week out-of-towners. But don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself.
It is better to give than receive, especially when the holiday hunt turns up a limited edition or hard-to-find item you know your loved ones probably won’t get two of.
Still need that one drop-dead piece for the main event of your holiday season? There are so many on-trend little black (or red or lilac or mosaic print) dresses you may need to add a night out so you don’t have to choose.
Nothing says holiday revels like a festive Mid Century bar.
That cool breeze in the air, plus a new season of Sons of Anarchy (and the Fall 2013 runways!) should give Fleasters a few more reasons to rethink leather. Vroom.
A quick survey of last weekend’s Fort Greene offerings turned up plenty of souvenirs to make even the most committed arm chair travelers look like world explorers.
In honor of this Friday’s Great Gatsby opening, the ’20s are roaring back at the Flea.
Spring is here and for definitive proof look no further than Flea vintage vendors’ collections. Bold blooms, floaty frocks, and barely there laces have cropped up, calling to mind many of the Spring 2013 runway looks. What’s old—unique, finely constructed, distinctive—is new again.
