    2015-social-facebook-coverphoto-march-851x315

    From the modernist elegance of Coco Chanel to Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s punk-fueled pirates, the appeal of nautical dress has cut a sartorial swathe for over two centuries. But how did garments such as the blue and white fisherman’s top and peacoat cross over from uniform and workwear into fashionable dress? In 'Nautical Chic, the first and only book to look at the history of high fashion on the high seas, Amber Jane Butchart traces the relationship between maritime dress and the fashionable wardrobe, uncovering stories, tracking the trends, and tracing the evolution of the style back to its seafaring roots.

    Save the date:  Amber Jane Butchart will be giving an illustrated talk on the history of nautical fashion at Beyond Retro’s store in Dalston on the evening of Wednesday April 22nd bringing Nautical Chic to life. More info > Here

    Describe east London style in three words…

    Experimental, original, interesting

    Describe Cheshire Street?

    Cheshire Street has a very vibrant personality. It is bursting with colour and offers all customers the ultimate fun vintage experience. We have an eclectic team who are just as colourful as the clothing who are on hand to help guide the customer on their adventure through the store!

    Shopping on Brick Lane, is taking a step out of the real world and entering a special hub full of creative energy. There are so many walks of life and a certain freedom to be who you want to be. I feel privileged to be a part of this world and to witness the excitement of the people who come into it for the first time.

    Who’s your icon?

    Cyndi Lauper

    Do you have a fave era or decade?

    I'm really inspired by 80s culture. Music and fashion was both big and bold. I'm forever worshiping the perm,the shoulder pad and synth.

    What’s the go-to piece of vintage in your wardrobe?

    During winter, I lived in a long red 80s cardigan with gold buttons and shoulder pads. I'm currently on the hunt for my summer equivalent.

  • Meet the Illustrator: Anna Povey

     Meet the Ill

    Describe your work in three words…

    Nostalgic,plastic and playful.

    Where did it all begin?

    Visiting art galleries from when I was a child made me want to create. My family's very creative, it's in my genes!

    Where do you draw inspiration from?

    Fashion, my childhood and objects I find.

    Meet the Illustrator Tanya 3 Image Source: Anna Povey

    Would you say images are more powerful than words?

    Images help people visualize and understand things they might not get from just words.

    Who is your fave illustrator?

    Anna lomax, Chris Uphues and Jean Julien! I’m also loving Martha Moore Porter, she makes really great glittery charms.

    Why do you shop vintage?

    I love wearing things no one else is wearing, plus it's really fun going into a shop and finding something really cool and cheaper than the high street. I have so many vintage clothes they don't fit in my room, I could never pick a favourite.
