Vintage French Swatch Book (for sale)!




While trolling Laura Werkheiser’s wonderful tumblr page, I came across this jewel of an etsy find: A French swatch book full of vintage fabrics (ala 60’s & 70’s) from the houses of Lanvin, Givenchy, Balmain, Molyneux, and Carven.

While this incredible find is on sale for just under $1000, it seems like it belongs in a museum rather than a mass market office where everything will get remade and knocked off by next season. If you’re connected to RISD, FIT or any of the other wonderful fashion institutes out there, make a plea to your department to snag this beauty before it’s gone.

Tracking Repetitive + Awesome.
