About Elvira Vintage
Elvira Vintage is an online boutique that offers a carefully edited collection of internationally sourced vintage clothing and accessories by high end designers including Celine, Dior, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, to name a few.
Founders of Elvira Vintage, Tori Steinberg and Sophie Scrimgeour, noticed that vintage clothing shops in London are scarcely edited, and there was a huge gap in the market for carefully selected vintage that was available to a broader market.
Elvira's main concept is to offer carefully considered pieces that create a sought after selection of the most coveted designer vintage, sourced from all over the world - from the best vintage fairs and dealers using Tori and Sophie's expertise.
The collection presents unique pieces that compliment present trends, and so coordinate with the modern day wardrobe.
Created as a way to preserve and revive the designs of their most cherished vintage pieces, a diffusion line is being launched called "Roma Rivera".
"Roma Rivera" consists of luxurious and basic pieces, appreciated for their complimentary fit and fabric, that will themselves become wardrobe staples for years to come.
"We want certain design elements of our most treasured vintage pieces to be more accessible to our customers".
The founders, Tori Steinberg and Sophie Scrimgeour have backgrounds in fashion design at Central Saint Martins, and fashion merchandising at Fashion Institute of Technology New York. They shared a mutual love and appreciation for vintage clothing and a common interest in the expression of evolving fashion cultures. Being Vintage collectors themselves they decided to bring a new approach to vintage shopping to the UK, with travelling pop ups in London and an e-commerce site.
"We offer a distinct service that allows classic styles to be interpreted in a very present fashion culture"
