Haut is a new online designer vintage store, redefining the way we consume and use clothes. I was hired to write in-depth product descriptions for its first few batches of items.
Moschino Cheap and Chic Dress
Moschino Cheap and Chic might be known for its outrageous prints and cartoon characters, but the diffusion line of one of Italy's best-known fashion houses is a master at feminine tailoring. Dynamic stitch detailing has been splayed across the front of this blue dress, contouring it to the body. A split at the back offsets the bodycon silhouette with movement, while a crossover neckline frames your face.
About the brand: Cheap and Chic was founded in 1988 to bring the Italian fashion house's style to a wider audience. Younger and more daring than its already outrageous parent, Cheap and Chic is still going strong today and provides a playful new point of view on Italian tailoring.
13. Silk Frill Bolero crop Shirt
You don’t need us to tell you how it is. This fine silk shirt with comes with oversized frills down the sleeves for a dramatic silhouette, with shoulder pads to balance things out. Closing with a knot at the front, it’s finished with a slim, classic shirt collar.
Worn with: Balenciaga ankle zip trousers, Loewe Methacrylate heels.
Stussy Rude boy Long sleeve top
You can’t deny the appeal of Stussy, especially a grail 90s piece like this long sleeve from back in the day. Really, it’s all about the pale purple colour and that perfectly swirled logo on the back.
About the brand:
Shawn Stussy is rightly known as a god in the streetwear world. The legend (and it is a legend) goes a little something like this: guy starts selling T-shirts out the back of his car in the early 80s. 30 years later, even your mom’s wearing Stussy (probably), and looking damn fine in it. And we need to give props to the brand’s other founder, Frank Sinatra Jr (no relation) who still continues to oversee the Stussy magic on those collectible tees today.
Classic Prada Sport Blue Windbreaker
Whether you call it a windbreaker, windcheater, anorak or hooded jacket, it’s a signature Prada Sport piece. This electric blue version comes in techno fabric with silver metal zip, one pocket on each side, a round collar and is unlined, ideal for layering.
About the brand:
We got big love for Prada Sport. Once known mostly for wraparound sunglasses and ski jackets, with the rise of athleisure it’s become a staple in our wardrobes. Like you’d expect, this sister label to the Italian powerhouse focuses on technical fabrics, pared-down detailing and pieces that swap neatly from runway to, well, sports stadium.
