        WHAT SIDE OF THE BED… WESTWOOD MCLAREN RHODES

        We are excited to present two very rare and unusual SEX era t-shirts from Vivienne Westwood, Malcolm McLaren and Bernie Rhodes. Both original examples. No fakes or frauds here. The shirt asks the all important question that seems as crucial today as it did back in 1974. So, what side are you gonna wake up on!?!

        Get inspired with a look back at Leee Black Childers iconic image of Johnny Thunders.

                Inside the world’s premiere sources of collectible and historical vintage.

                There’s only one reason to dwell in the past, and that’s for the love of vintage fashion. We find our obsession with it therapeutic and useful for a variety of reasons, and consider ourselves lucky that one of the world’s premiere sources of collectible and historical vintage is located conveniently near the CR headquarters in downtown, New York. Resurrection Vintage, which first began as New York and Los Angeles retail concepts founded by Katy Rodriguez and Mark Haddawy 1996, continues its dedication to fashion preservation at its Resurrection Archive Studio. In our interpretation of the most current fashion, you’d be surprised how often it requires a trip through the past. (See our current issue that’s dedicated entirely to 18th century fashion ala Marie Antoinette.) We know we’re not alone—the top fashion, media, and film gurus regularly pay visits to Resurrection for research, design, and development. There’s so much that the artists of today can take away from the innovation and craftsmanship of fashion’s past.

                A few particular points of interest is at Resurrection is the extensive collections of Margiela, Comme des Garçons, Balenciaga, and Vivienne Westwood that contain some of the most key fashion pieces from the 21st century. They have access to the rarest pieces and they know what collectors have an eye out for. “We love Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga,” founder Katy Rodriguez says. We have collection in our archive for several years, but have started to move key pieces to our store. Scuba pieces are the most coveted among collectors and fashionistas. We just bough Charlotte Gainsbourg’s 2003 scuba dresss, which was quite exciting.” Alaia is also marked as high priority for collections, and Rodriguez has no shortage of that either. “We love Mr. Alaia. The most exciting days at Resurrection are when he stops by to visit us. The leather pieces from the 1980s are so sexy—they look as fierce today as they did 30 years ago. The cutout skirts are coveted by collectors are extremely rare.”

                Our most CR original editorial is the result of a day spent the day at Resurrection’s incredible archive. We found a key dogtooth coat from McQueen’s 2009 collection, sought after Alaia denim, and a Jean Paul Gaultier bodysuit that was one of three. “Gaultier has been a staple at Resurrection since we opened 20 years ago. We bought a collection of three bodysuits and the one pictured, we kept. If I remember correctly, the Traina sisters bought the other two! We have a massive collection of Gaultier and we continue to heavily collect.” Scroll through the full story to be inspired to start your own collection, or simply to drool over.
