    Retro

    Februar 21st, 2011

    Retro clothes, also known for vintage clothes, are widely known as second hand garments originating from a previous era. The word ‘retro’ originally comes from the Latin prefix retro and literally means ‘backwards’ or ‘in past times’. It is now also used in fashion for describing a certain item as ‘old fashioned’ or old, functioning much like ‘timeless’ or ‘classic’.

    Juni 15th, 2010

    Vintage clothes, also known for retro clothes, are widely known as second hand garments originating from a previous era. The word vintage is copied from its use in wine terminology, as a more elegant-word for ‘old’ clothes. Generally speaking, garments which were produced before the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing. And clothing that came from the 1920s to 1980 on the other hand, is considered vintage.
