Holiday Gift Guide: The Vintage-Obsessed
It has to be obvious to Lille shoppers that we have a special place in our hearts for anything with vintage charm. We adore floaty tap pants, go crazy for silk thigh highs, and can't get enough high-waisted knickers (bonus points if they have garter straps attached). No surprise, then, that many of our customers share this obsession; we love how they pair our new-but-vintage-inspired merchandise with their assortment of thrifted garments. If you're gift shopping for a retro-loving lady, we will have so many options for you, the only difficulty will be figuring out which one(s) to choose! Vintage girls can run the gamut in terms of their style, but they tend to share one thing in common: they enjoy design which evokes and transports them to another era. If she's more inspired by the styles of the early 20th century, look for flapper-esque silk bralets, bias-cut slips, and intricate lace details in soft, muted colors. We love the classic feel of the Art Nouveau group from Hanro—the line is celebrating their 130th anniversary this year and revisited their past collections for an authentic vintage look. Perhaps her taste is more mid-century? The Mira Longline and Bikini from Fortnight have a decidedly '50s/'60s feel, while still being totally sexy and modern (I've always referred to the Mira Slip as having a 'Joan from Mad Men' vibe). A cheeky high-waisted bottom like the Arpege Panty would also be an excellent choice—with matching Underwire or Soft Bra, of course, because vintage girls tend to match (as their foremothers did). And regardless of era, we think any vintage-lover is going to adore the Naiades pieces from Princesse Tam Tam—whimsical illustrations of 1920s bathing beauties? I mean, come on. What more could a vintage gal want? Maybe some Crochet Over-the-Knee Socks (a perfect stocking stuffer)... All in all, getting her a new set, slip, or teddy is a treat like no other; it will make her daily dressing ritual more special and make her feel like the sexy vintage vixen she is. After all, who doesn't want to channel her inner Marilyn or Brigitte from time to time? Be sure to check out our Holiday Gift Guide Collection to find all of our top picks for the season!
