Vintage Goldmine: MOSCHINO

nastygal-vintagemoschino_01

This week, our vintage goldmine star is none other than the always playful, forever cheeky Moschino. From the early days when Franco Moschino was causing a ruckus as fashion’s enfant terrible to Jeremy Scott’s latest Barbie-fied creations, we’ve gathered together some of the most iconic moments from the Italian brand’s legacy.

Vintage Goldmine: CHANEL

Every Monday for the next five weeks, we’re premiering an insanely-chic collection of vintage from an iconic luxury designer. We scoured the world for the vintage best of the best to curate a special selection of truly rare and unique pieces, just for you (digging for treasure is what we do best, after all). With each goldmine, we’ll be posting a visual timeline showcasing the evolution of that brand. First up: Chanel. From the early days of tweed and pearls, to Karl Lagerfeld’s bold and colorful new visions, we’ve broken down Coco’s legacy from beginning to present day (and added in a few of her famous quotes). Read and for a fashion lesson like no other.

A Different Kind of Instagram

In the digital world, it’s hard to see beyond strategic selfies and personal promo. But Marissa and I believe that Instagram and Twitter and all of those things can be pretty useful. A few years ago, the two of us created personal Instagram accounts, where we posted pictures of our crazy outfits and cool friends or, in my case, my really good-looking golden retriever. Instagram was fun, but not exactly professional. Then, Marissa had a genius idea and within a couple days she had Cur8ed, an Instagram profile where she posted her favorite editorials and reinvented them on her own body. It was genius and I was jealous. So, on a car ride with her, Marissa encouraged me to start something too. Fast forward a few months and I was the proud owner of Copy Lab, something I’ve deemed “a social experiment on taste and perception” but is, in all reality, Photoshopping designer goods onto famous paintings. Instafame still hasn’t hit either of us, but we’re having fun doing it, and it’s a lot more fun to create original content than it is to take millions of selfies (eventhough, yeah, we still do that on occasion). Marissa and I had a conversation about all things Insta a few days ago and thought we would share! –Chris Rellas
