Vintage Fashion Accessories

stacy

It was a busy weekend in New York City last weekend. After covering the Stella Pier Antiques Show I  cabbed down to the gallery launching of  Stacy LoAlbo’s new book entitled, “Vintage Fashion Accessories”.

Pulling up to the MH gallery, on west 20th street,  I was pleasantly surprised to see a large and lively crowd all gathered to celebrate the culture of vintage fashion.

LoAlbo, seated in the front of the gallery, was busy signing copies of her new book. As she explained to me;  not everyone can or wants to dress in full vintage mode. However, there are many who could easily spice up their contemporary wardrobe with some smart and unique vintage accessories. A mod handbag, a pair of vintage snake skin boots, a feathered hat, a sparkling vintage costume brooch or even a Salvador Dali necktie can all create a unique fashion statement.

Stacy LoAlbo, who owns the Incogneeto vintage boutique in Somerville, New Jersey, has also written numerous articles on vintage fashion for several newspapers, participated in dozens of shows in the field, given symposiums and lectures and has held several vintage clothing fashion shows. Her long experience in the field of vintage fashion has given her an evolved sense for fashion modes and trends.

Quoting the gallery notes

There are historical and cultural associations with vintage clothing and accessories. LoAlbo, in her new book, has given us lessons on that sentiment. The pages are filled with photography of dresses, hats and accessories with artfully cropped images of product shots by Jimmy Lin and Marguerite Ruscito. A book more for the fashionista or vintage collector, it easily crosses the boundary of art as it emphasizes the beauty, uniqueness and sensuality of these vintage items spanning an era that starts in the stylish early 1900’s to the plaids of the 1970’s.

Tons of great vintage accessories, people dressed in all their vintage finery, lots of books being signed and good conversations made for a great night.

  1. Thanks for coming out to the show! It was a fun night! I think the art world has been forever changed by the introduction of “Vintage Fashion Accessories” and the art it perceives. Heidi and Nick Rosal, the owners of MH Gallery in NYC should be commended for thinking outside the box and allowing me into their world…!
