Late April is a funny time of year in these British Isles. With the weather hotting up, that already bumpy transition from bed to wardrobe to work [or uni] adds an extra hump. Distrusting of the sunny weather [and naturally so when one maverick cloud can leave you sodden in flip flops and looking like a tool] we often turn to last season's wardrobe to see us through. Shorts with Christmas jumpers, sandals with shearling - typical symptoms of the fickle British weather. And so, on Saturday April 16th, a good lot of you Londoners decided to do something about it. No longer should you perspire until payday - to the Rag Factory it was!
For those of you unawares, the concept behind The Vintage Kilo Sale is a winning one; working with Glass Onion, the UK's largest wholesaler, 2.5 tonnes of lovely vintage stuff wings it's way around the country whilst shoppers wait to bag it up. At £15 a kilo, it's the ideal way for anyone strapped for cash and exasperated with their inter-season wardrobe to feel, well, human [and room temperature] again.
