Finding vintage treasures in Paris

Imparfaite, one of the most important new websites for vintage fans, is organizing a fair during two days in Paris. A must go for everyone interested in fashion and style.

Over the last years, more than an additional way to build a wardrobe, shopping a vintage piece has become almost a lifestyle philosophy. Most customers, who look out for garments which were designed and worn in the past, are clearly looking to get a unique piece, charged with history. Some vintage fans accessorize these items with contemporary outfits while others redesign them to become a piece of “upcycled” fashion. Whatever inspiration they get, it usually starts with a coup de foudre* for a piece.


To bring the eclectic vintage offer to a larger audience, the founders of Imparfaite Paris had the great idea to set up a website that features their rigorous selection of vintage items. Fitting perfectly well into the current demands and fashion styles, these antique pieces, originating from a large network of small vendors and vintage specialists in France, can then be purchased online. Not only is it an easy way to get access to many very attractive finds, designer labels, and interesting style options, but it saves a lot of time and energy to those who do not have access to all these little vendors, based all over the country.

To make the adventure even stronger, during two days in June, the team of Imparfaite are organizing their vintage fair in Paris. The two young ladies who perfectly embody the idea of a more sustainable and yet creative lifestyle which is part of the vintage philosophy, are going to introduce 50 of their best vintage vendors and their collections of garments, bags, accessories, and glasses. Additionally, guests can attend lectures on topics about how fashion can be changed with vintage. Tickets to the fair can be purchased online and offer access to this very exceptional event where vintage cognoscenti, as well as newcomers, will share their passion for treasures from the past, combining genuine stories and extraordinary style identities.
