Plenty of fashion designers cite vintage as a source of inspiration, but Chloe Chippendale has taken that sentiment to a new level with Stoned Immaculate.
Chippendale started off by reselling her quality vintage finds directly to customers through social media, growing the brand’s massive Instagram following to more than 100,000, and followed that up with a California-made private label that launched last fall. It’s a spinoff of her own personal style, which includes an eye for quality vintage and even features re-creations of her favorite pieces.
Stoned Immaculate’s truest treasure is their T-shirts, according to team member Kelly Dudek. “They are super soft and have a worn in look around the collar,” she told Racked over the phone. “The designer has spent literally 15 years perfecting the fabric, the finishes — the whole vintage feel.”
What’s also special is that the brand produces small batches, so the odds of seeing it all over the streets are pretty slim. Luckily, you’ll find plenty of it this Saturday, July 23rd at Wild West Brooklyn (225 Grand Street), where you’ll have a chance to check out the latest collection and bestsellers, including the favorite Wonder Years Bodysuit ($135, above).
