New Store: A Vin­tage Tale

Herworld (Singapore) - - TO KNOW -

It be­gan in 2015 as a Mi­lan-based on­line store started by Ital­ian Az­zurra La Man­tia, 35, as the place for vin­tage clothes and ac­ces­sories from the ’50s to the ’90s. When she moved to Sin­ga­pore in Jan­uary 2018, she met fel­low vin­tage lover Jas­mine De Brauwer, 42, the Bel­gian founder of Jazzys­tar Vin­tage, at a Sun­day flea mar­ket. The two new friends joined forces to bring A Vin­tage Tale of­fline. They opened its brick-and-mor­tar at 277 Joo Chiat Road in July, on the sec­ond floor of a shop­house (#02-01). Its ex­panded range in­cludes evening and cock­tail dresses, and hats and bags from brands like Roberta di Camerino, Gucci, Moschino, and Dior. De­signed to look like an eclec­tic woman’s home, the store is mostly dec­o­rated with lo­callysourced vin­tage fur­ni­ture – which is not for sale.

The store opens from Wed­nes­day to Sun­day, 11.30am6.30pm. It is closed on pub­lic hol­i­days.
