  • Unique Vintage Recommends: Midnight in Paris

    There are few films that can capture the romanticism of Paris in such a modern, yet old world sense. The city of lights is not only the Mecca for fashion lovers, but for lovers in general. In the film "Midnight in Paris", director Woody Allen transports the audience, as well as protagonist Gil Pender, to Paris in its most divine period; the 1920’s. The dimly lit streets are filled with the faint sound of Cole Porter’s  “Let’s Fall In Love.” Nostalgia, in its most fabulous state, is literally around every corner. The protagonist, played masterfully by a bumbling yet thrilled Owen Wilson, comes face to face with his literary hero’s including F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. The film goes from being not only a brilliant film, but to a delicious portrait of Paris in the jazz age.

    But what caught our eyes here at Unique Vintage were the costumes, of course. With this film getting Oscar buzz left and right, we expect for the '20s to come roaring back onto the scene for this Holiday season. The carefree era we have come to know for its numerous libations is going to be the central theme for countless events, and Unique Vintage wants you to be the first one in line for the Charleston!
