As I was researching this story, I became more and more amazed that no one has really covered this lesser-known vintage enclave. Of course, BlackBook covered Jill and her daughter Alexandra Richards, touching on their love of vintage, but no mention of the genius vintage collection actually housed and for sale in the Jill Stuart stores. I am a huge Jill Stuart fan and own at least six of her fabulously girly frocks. I have always shopped the Soho store and was beyond excited when she opened her jewel of a venue in East Hampton a couple of years ago. It was out East that I started to truly appreciate Stuart’s amazing eye not only for relevant designer name vintage, but also for non-branded, must-have lace and crocheted pieces. I started to make frequent trips to the Soho store this fall, not only because I covet the brand, but also because I adore the vintage collection and the truly swanky environment it inhabits.
