Can you imagine living in your favourite era? To walk around in the clothes of that decade, to use the objects of that time in your daily life and to get by under their limitations; in short, to immerse yourself in the era you always dreamed of, the one you belonged to or always loved.
Well, what if we told you that it is possible to travel back in time in the present day? Although it may seem impossible and crazy, some people have managed it. And you, do you dare to be part of Smile’s most daring gang?
What does it mean to be a vintage person?
Vintage is born, not made. To be a true vintage person is to let yourself be carried away by the charm of the era and appreciate all that it has to offer. These people define their lifestyle based on the social structure and trends of the era they choose, and it can be a lot of fun, but it can also be very expensive and take years.
What is the difference between hipster and vintage?
Is hipster the same as vintage? The answer is no. A hipster is someone who follows the same trend; they have a preference for alternative or independent. They reject current consumerism and commercial culture, looking for their expressiveness in past fashions, what they understand as original (the best) and hence the vintage part.
