When Felwa Met a YSL Vintage Collector

It was a hot summer day in London, a day like no other, for I met a YSL vintage collector. I have a passion for vintage, & I would like to think that I have an eye for these matters. I loved his inventory, all YSL, all exceptional pieces. I remember he was wearing pencil shorts, a buttoned up shirt, and glasses. He reminded me of a character in a 60s French movie I once watched. Human is his name, and vintage is his game. A month ago, I got an epiphany, being a vintage lover and collector, why not start selling one of pieces to people who appreciate fashion and luxury?! 
Last year, YSL vintage piece doubled in price due to the name change to Saint Laurent Paris. The 2 pieces Human chose are marvelous and very on trend this season, especially the black & white color block suit. If anyone is interested in buying any or both of these pieces, please e-mail me so I can direct you to the seller.

  1. I'm a vintage and second hand lover to. In fact most of my treasures (like I call them) are not new! But who cares. Vintage is like a good film or a book. It tells you a story, fells different and pays off!!

    thanks for your blog, always great.
