Once upon a time in the early 1970s, Biba mania swept England. There were “Biba girls,” the “Big Biba” building (attracting over a million customers a week) and, of course, the “Biba look.” Fashion remembers this storied brand fondly, and Biba pieces are still rare and sought-after to this day. Now, you can own a piece of history with the launch of Farfetch and Decades’ vintage Biba collection for fall.
Decades, a renowned vintage emporium in Los Angeles, partnered with the luxury e-commerce site Farfetch to bring Biba patrons prime pieces from the brand’s “golden era”. Iconic pieces like printed swing dresses, sequined jackets, and a floor-length leopard skin coat once worn by Twiggy will be available in this exclusive premiere. Founder and CEO of Farfetch, José Neves, had this to say about the forthcoming collection, “Biba has been an iconic part of British fashion and is still very relevant today; we’re excited to see how the next generation adopts the collection.” Mark your calendars now for this exciting event as the Vintage Biba collection will become available on Farfetch.com on September 10, 2014.
