American Vintage: a casual brand with a luxurious feel

American Vintage London’s store opened its doors in December 2015, ten years after Michaël Azoulay created the French brand American Vintage.

American Vintage London’s store opened its doors in December 2015, ten years after Michaël Azoulay created the French brand American Vintage. Instinctive and curious, he sought his inspiration in the streets of the world, surrounding himself with a team of designers to reinvent the basic staples of the modern woman’s wardrobe; for example, the ubiquitous t-shirt, a must-have.

Located in fashionable Westbourne Grove, American Vintage focuses on basic t-shirts and comfortable and trendy clothes: sweaters, fluid jackets, soft pullovers… Their style is chic and casual at the same time. Simplicity and elegance are the keywords that define American Vintage. In the constant search for new materials and the clever blending of natural fibres, (100% silk, hand-knitted cotton, silk/cotton blend, organic cotton voile…) the garments delicately wrap the body.
Their London shop, like every American Vintage store, from Europe to Asia and the Middle East, has been designed by Aurélie Vagharchak. For summer, they have lovely printed dresses and jumpsuits for women, and trendy jackets and trousers for men.

The Basic range comes in a richly coloured palette with pigmentary tones of pastel and natural shades. Jerseys, extra-large t-shirts, débardeurs, micro-skirts, baggy blouses… The new summer collection is inspired by nature with fresh and authentic notes and new fabrics.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
