VFiles Goes Vintage-------
VFiles—you know it as the one-stop Mercer Street shop famous for its international cool-kid wares and its unique, engaging social-media platform. But as of this month, the store has added a notably more traditional branch to its hyper-hip oeuvre: an expertly sourced vintage capsule dubbed Voyageur Du Temps, replete with pieces from Chanel, Gianni Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, and more.
Sourced from private dealers worldwide, VFiles’ collection of covetable collectibles—which includes a graffiti-and-vinyl Hermès tote and a cotton-candy-pink Céline knapsack—sprung from one of the site’s most popular clicks: a digitized Chanel lookbook from 1994. Recognizing a thirst for vintage among its followers, the brand decided to fashion its own trove of archived accoutrements.
Pieces from Voyageur Du Temps are available now online and at VFiles’ 12 Mercer Street location in New York City. Prices range from $300 to $3,000.
