O là là, c’est une boutique unique!
What is it that makes a boutique unique? The clothes, the ambiance, the philosophy?
It’s certainly something we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about. That magic formula that makes you feel excited and special just by browsing. Step inside the Silk & Sawdust vintage fashion store and we’ll hope you’ll find a combination of all of these and a mystery ingredient that creates something really quite different.
La boutique unique: a haven of timeless style
With vintage style dresses, skirts, and other ladies clothing from the 1920s through to the 1980s, Silk & Sawdust’s boutique unique store is a haven of timeless style. If you’ve at swooned the glamorous looks of yesteryear’s film stars, longed to squeeze into a 23-inch-waisted frock from the last century, or failed to hide the moth holes in an antique dress, then Silk & Sawdust is here to offer you a new vintage twist.
La boutique unique: lovingly recreating history
Recreating and vintage classics in the stunning fabrics available today, with beautiful hand-tailoring and cuts to fit our figures now, you’ll find boutique clothing with a story to tell. As you shop the collection you’ll see that each Silk & Sawdust design comes with its own little history, explaining how it came into being. Whether it’s inspired by an original dress worn by Grace Kelly or a drawing from a 1940s Vogue pattern book, you’ll be adding a piece of fashion history to your closet when you select your boutique unique Silk & Sawdust piece.
La boutique unique: exclusive and respectful
The designs in the collection are only available in limited quantities, so you’re unlikely to see anyone else in your chosen frock. Some are one of a kind, others are just one of six. Whichever, we don’t produce more than 10 of any given item. And when you shop the Silk & Sawdust boutique unique collection you can rest assured that your purchase is as respectful of fashion ethics as it is of fashion history. Having volunteered in Thailand with Voluntary Services Overseas, our designer Claudia now spends several months a year in Bangkok, working closely with delightful dressmakers, ensuring they have as much fun making the clothes as you do wearing them.
La boutique unique: clothing to love
As much as we all love design and creativity, a wardrobe is no good filled with items you only ever wear once. Which is why at Silk & Sawdust you’ll find pieces that are wearable, as well as beautiful, that you can wear not just once but time and time again. That’s the true measure of a boutique unique dress: something to treasure and adore, but a work of art that you can pop on time and time again to give you a special spring in your step throughout the day or night.
