Far from consignments and thrift shops, La Mode Vintage makes the difference by its precise selection of luxury, high-end pieces.
Here, creations from the greatest designers at the most accomplished period of their work are gathered : Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Comme des Garçons, Valentino, Lanvin, Céline. Single pieces, sometimes restored or as good as new, carefully picked according to their singularity and history.
The emotion felt when we are in front of a unique piece, the one we can not find elsewhere: that is the concept of our showroom. Vintage products that travel through time and transcending fashion and exceptional, inspiring pieces from current designers. La Mode Vintage is the testimony of an old expertise becoming even more uncommon.
The showroom houses hundreds of women's leather goods, accessories, fashion show pieces or haute couture. It is a well known destination for designers and film directors for sourcing or inspiration. The pieces showcased are symbols of an era, but also precursory from current trends. Two dimensions that make La Mode Vintage a timeless place.
Carole Bigielman was born on May 10th 1964 in the middle of wire coils and colorful fabrics. When she was 6, she created small overalls and trendy dresses for her dolls. At that time, she wore apple green coats with large buttons made by his father, a tailor who transmitted his love for fashion and materials through his work.
In the late 1980’s, she moved to the flea markets of Paris. Early vintage, her shop was frequented by Leonard dress and Courrèges coat lovers. Wherever she goes, from Parisian bazaars to New Delhi ones, her trend savvy eye always unearths rare pieces.
At the end of the 1990’s, she launched her own brand, and created collections which reflect her history, and makes them inescapable.
Today, Carole Bigielman mixes ideas and eras. The designers she likes are present in the most advanced stages of their own history. She love elegance, colors, fabrics and couture workmanship.
