The New Vintage Website For All Things Luxury
December 13th 2010
It’s not often that a rare gem like this pop’s up in your inbox. When I first opened the message from Vintage Seekers I was like a kid on Christmas morning.... a posh kid with fantastic taste and a penchant for fine wine!
Vintage Seekers prides itself in being the first premium online platform for luxury vintage shopping, and certainly does it’s best to maintain that title. The collection of items is as they say “scrupulously sourced from reputable international dealers,” and is truly a testament to the phrase “things get better with age.” All class, the beautifully designed website reads like an expensive coffee table book, and offers the finest money could buy in categories such as fashion, design, motoring, memorabilia, watches and wine.
In a world where Ossie Clark, Dior and Biba are brushing shoulders with Rolex, Austin Martin and Jaguar, Vintage Seekers provides a stylish, original and rare website fit for avid collectors and shoppers who appreciate the finer things. Impressively sleek 1950’s Jaguar’s are alongside jaw dropping pieces like a ladies 1970’s Rolex Geneva, 1920’s Louis Vuitton luggage, and even Andy Warhol’s iconic black roll neck sweater. Sigh.
Exceptional taste is at the forefront and is evident throughout the site without being pretentious or intimidating to those who may not have their own sprawling vintage collection on the go. Their magazine section is chic and interesting, and split into sections like the ‘Lounge’ which offers features and interviews, the ‘Library’ which contains buyer guides and reference material, and ‘International Diary’ which outlines exciting things to see and do all over the globe which have a vintage or classic twist.
A bespoke Seekers Service is also available for those looking for a specific dream item that their team of experts may be able to source.
Our editor said it best upon learning about the site by replying “ Well, I know what I’ll be doing for the rest of this evening,” and I can’t tell you how long it has taken me to finish this piece simply because I keep getting lost in its alluring decadence.
