Recycled fashion

Photography Terry Richardson for Vogue Paris

I am not obsessed with brands and am not keen at all on clothing that has logos all over it however I have to say that there is nothing like the quality of high end brands. They last forever in terms of quality and form if you buy them correctly. The best way to buy them is to go for the more classic pieces. You can be wearing Zara or any of the fast fashion brands and if you mix it with a pair of shoes, a bag, jacket or trouser from one of the luxury brands it will look a lot more chic! If your like me you don’t have a fortune to spend on clothes so you have to be clever and have some fun in the recylcled fashion stores of the world! The best one in Sydney is Di Nuovo in Paddington. They always have a fantastic selection of shoes and bags as well as great fashion clothing pieces. You can find a fantastic branded jacket for a tenth of the price and they are all in really good condition. It has brands from Chanel to Zimmerman. Check out their blog; http://dinuovo.tumblr.com/

If your in Milan you should visit Salvagente which is not recycled but it is the left over stock of the season. You can find every high end luxury brand there; Lanvin, Chloe, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana and so on. They have three floors!! It is an absolute must to visit. They are in Via Fratelli Bronzetti 16, take a look at their web site for opening hours; http://www.salvagentemilano.it/

In Hong Kong one of the best to visit is Button Hole in Soho, 58-60B Peel Street, Tel 28992069. In Paris I go regularly to Coiffeur Vintage, Rue de Rosiers 32 (vintage is a post to come!) but for luxury high end brands you need to go outside Paris to La Vallee Village in Marnes la Vallee. If you are in Switzerland you must go to Foxtown which is in Mendrisio (Switzerland) just over the boarder from Italy (great if you want to visit Lago di Como on the way). It is amazing! All the brands have their own stores and the prices are incredible. For information visit the web site; http://www.foxtown.ch
