Super Vintage: the new buzzing micro-boutique in the 10th

Vintage articles at the shop of shiri slavin in Paris

We must stand out,” hammers Shiri Slavin, founder of Super Vintage. No doubt, this stylist, who trained at Studio Berçot, formerly in charge of the home selection for the Merci concept-store, cultivates difference. The address she has just opened in the trendy 10th with her designer husband combines fashion, accessories and retro decoration in a studied off-the-wall spirit. Get ready for an eyeful.

The Palace years are making a comeback

 the interior and decoration of the shiri slavin shop in Paris

Fashion is a perpetual renewal, right? Passionate about antiquing and tag sales, Shiri has an eagle eye when it comes to spotting nuggets from the 50s-80s furiously in keeping with the times. Her hobby? The “camp” movement, theme chosen for the MET gala last May—showcasing extravagance and fantasy.

Result: strong pieces, often off-beat, such as wild Seventies jumpsuits worthy of evenings at the Palace disco, an evening bag inlaid with rhinestones (€28), body tops in lurex such as  those worn by wrestlers from Glow, a Donald cartoon t-shirt (€20) and a wide array of clip-on earrings. More “sober”? Pretty long dresses in Victorian-style lace, kimonos, label scarves (Dior, Givenchy…), bourgeois YSL shoes (€75), travel bags and suitcases from the former UTA airline. All at tiny prices.

Same thing for men with soccer shirts glorifying the former stars of the round ball

(€10-18), houndstooth shirts or with fancy V-necks as well as brand new polos, with the original tags.

Kitsch is the new black

To boring minimalistic decoration, Shiri prefers curiosities “that make people smile”. Example? A very realistic ceramic bulldog, nude bimbos on water glasses, bowling pins (€5), spade and diamond-shaped pitchers … and even garden dwarfs! A great way to bring a touch of fantasy to your home sweet home.

Open Monday to Saturday from noon to 7:30pm. More info on the Instagram account @supervintageparis.
