If Kate Hudson’s character in Almost Famous even remotely resonated with you, listen up. It’s finally cool again to brazenly flash your taste in music – no matter how embarrassing – and while Justin Bieber and Kanye West’s tour merchandise is the most sought after at the moment, we find ourselves pining for vintage pieces from the glorious 50s, 70s, and 80s. It’s nostalgic dressing at its best; not only does it require zero hours of queuing up and spare you from the agony of a failed bidding war on eBay, but it also oozes attitude and nonchalance.
Savoir Flair’s late-night Instagram scrolling recently paid off when we stumbled upon Merch Junkies, a New York-based online retailer that stocks a mix of customized vintage and homemade-with-love clothing to pay tribute to your favorite rockstar or band – everyone from Elvis Presley to David Bowie and The Runaways. Counting “It” girls Alexa Chung and Petra Collins as followers, Merch Junkies offers bomber jackets, embroidered T-shirts, and hand-painted jeans that are stylish enough to wear even when it’s not festival season.
Pay homage to some of your favorite rock icons with the one-of-a-kind pieces at www.merchjunkies.com.
