Introducing: Planet Vintage

It’s here! Introducing PLANET VINTAGE, a photography project between Angelina Lee of Punk Pebble Productions and Hackney’s renowned Paper Dress Vintage. If you love true vintage, Paper Dress is one of the best institutions to find clothing from the 1920s through to the 1980s. Having previously lived just a stone’s throw from the shop, I leaped at the opportunity to revisit it earlier this month at the request of Angelina to shoot a very special project.

The project, PLANET VINTAGE, is a sustainable fashion campaign that celebrates the value of buying second-hand clothing, which requires far less resources than clothing bought new. It also highlights the sheer excitement of finding unique treasures that benefit the planet and often one’s own wallet!

As Angelina puts it, “Thrifting vintage in particular can invite people to take inspiration from notable trends in fashion history.” This shoot covered two themes:

The Magic of Méliès, a series inspired by Georges Méliès’ “A Trip to the Moon,” and his dreamlike visions of celestial imagery, fairy tales, and trailblazing special effects borrowed from his days as a stage magician.

The Minimalists, a series inspired by the 60s Beatnik and modern minimalists movements, which leans toward anti-materialism to hone one’s true aesthetic.

Which one is your favourite?

You can find the entire shoot on the Punk Pebble Productions website and Instagram.

Thank you to Angelina Lee and the team at Paper Dress Vintage for inviting me to be part of this project. Loved clothes don’t just last, they grow better with age!
