The Vintage Twin: From Their Basement to Bloomingdales
Whether it’s Mary Kate and Ashley, Kendall and Kylie, or Dakota and Elle Fanning, there’s nothing more intimidating and fabulous than a fashionable sister duo. The latest pair of stylish sisters to take the industry by storm are Morgan and Samantha Elias of The Vintage Twin. In an effort to stand out and express their own personal aesthetics, the Elias twins started reworking their own vintage clothes back in high school. People began to take notice of their one-of-a-kind closet and ask for styling tips, and thus, in 2009, the two 19-year-olds founded The Vintage Twin. The brand is both environmentally friendly (every year Americans toss 30 million tons of usable goods into our landfills), supports individuality (each Vintage Twin piece is a one of a kind creation), and stylish (Morgan and Samantha rework and tailor vintage pieces so that they’re flattering and trendy).
The Vintage Twin regularly appears in the popular Bowery pop up shop in Lower Manhattan, offers its clothes online on their accessible and active website, and has made recent appearances in Bloomingdales’ NYC locations. With such a unique and savvy business model, and BFFs like Bella Hadid and Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat, its safe to say that the Elias girls are only going to get bigger. We got in touch with Morgan and Samantha last week and they picked out their fave Vintage Twin items for the Galore Girl during the holiday season.
For the working lady on a budget, we recommend our vintage flannels printed with, ‘Don’t Worry Be Yoncè’, ‘I’m So Fancy’, ‘I Woke Up Like This’, ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ and ‘One Less Problem’ to name a few. There are plenty more printed pieces all available starting at $44 + free shipping at: www.TheVintageTwin.com
Our Emoji Series Collab with @WeWoreWhat is also a winner among our Vintage Twins!
Our 1950’s collection of Cabochon Deadstock Rings are gorgeous and adjustable, making for the perfect gift and start at $24.
Feel good shopping with us this holiday season because 10% of proceeds go to charity!
