It takes me to Tango


The first vintage piece i ever bought was a black duffel coat from the 1940s when I was 13 - with beautiful large black buttons and stitched detail around the cuffs and waist it was worth the weeks upon weeks of saving for it.

Ever since then I have loved vintage fashion , in particular coats which it seems are becoming harder and harder to buy in good condition here in New Zealand.

It is probably fair that I thank the folks at Tango then for there fantastic winter 05 collection A walk in the park . Celebrating England in the 1950s , Tangos Winter collection is a beautiful mix of vintage elements with modern touches which add daring and edge to fifties frameworks.
