The Telegraph says Toronto is “a vintage heaven” and the destination for buying salvaged clothing
The Telegraph’s Stephanie Plentl came to Toronto recently and fell in love with the city’s healthy stock of vintage boutiques—not the musty ones in Kensington Market (well, aside from Roger D’Souza’s King of Kensington, Flashback and Flashback 2), but the shops that glisten and look as though they could have been curated by Patricia Field (costume designer for Sex and the City). She met V and 69 Vintage’s Kealan Sullivan, House of Vintage’s Dennis Adamidis and Gadabout’s Victoria Dinnick, and found out a few things we didn’t know: Sullivan works with Topshop, Adamidis sends his more fashion-forward pieces to his Shoreditch, London, location and D’Souza supplies Levi’s with vintage denim (even Joe Mimran is a long-time client). Plentl is absolutely gushing throughout her piece and claims that for “true vintage aficionados,” Toronto is the it destination. We think that is pretty terrific, and it probably has a lot to do with, as Adamidis puts it, “Toronto vintage [being] half the price.” Um, we figure the prices are likely to skyrocket after this bit of international press, so stock up on silk bodysuits while you still can.
