McArthurGlen’s Vintage Fashion Festival is returning this summer for its third tour of all five Italian McArthurGlen centres, bringing with it a full calendar of exciting events and exhibitions, proving that vintage never goes out of style!
Vintage pieces from HermesThe Vintage Fashion Festival, this year with a ‘Forever Floral’ theme, opens on 20 May at the three centres McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Noventa di Piave near Venice, La Reggia Designer Outlet (Naples) and Castel Romano Designer Outlet (Rome), to close on 8 June.

The tour then continues to Serravalle Designer Outlet (Milan/Turin) and Barberino Designer Outlet (Florence) from 12 to 29 June.

The vintage collections available are exclusively curated by A.N.G.E.L.O., the Italian owner of Europe’s biggest vintage collection and leading expert in this field. On offer at A.N.G.E.L.O.’s specially created pop-up store at the centres are vintage items from the likes of such iconic brands as Chanel, Hermes, Dior, YSL and Celine.

This year’s theme, ‘Forever Florals’, will be reflected in the special exhibition where shoppers can marvel at beautiful creations from famous Italian tailors and masters of Parisian Haute Couture from the past, creating a path back in time, to follow the history of fashion from the 20s to the 50s.

In addition to this, the Vintage Fashion Festival pop-up store will offer a special ‘swap area’, where shoppers can bring their own vintage clothing and accessories from labels such as Chanel, Celine, Dior, Hermès and YSL and receive a free evaluation of their items. There will then be the option to exchange their product with a vintage item of the same value.

Finally, a special draw to win a one-of-a-kind vintage Chanel bag will be open from 12 May until 29 June. To enter the competition, simply subscribe to the newsletter of one of McArthurGlen’s five Italian centres and you will be in for a chance to win this true object of desire.

Shaeren McKenzie, Group Marketing Director, McArthurGlen, says: “The global success of the Festival, now in its third year running, is down to its exceptional offering of exquisite vintage pieces and specially curated exhibitions. We want to provide shoppers with an exciting and exclusive shopping experience, and the Festival offers just this; the chance to pick up one-off vintage finds which will set them apart from the pack, along with some of the top names in fashion, all with 30-70% off.”
