❤️ Personal Style: Q&A With Owner, Kerri Colangelo ❤️

Kerri Colangelo

Flower: One of the things that I loved most about the store since the first day I ever discovered Dechoes was the designer vintage selection and of course, Kerri. In the beginning, it was singlehandedly curated by her at the original College Park shop. Our ongoing discussions about vintage fashion are some of my most favorite conversations. It is my pleasure to spend a moment with her talking about how her love for fashion and vintage began.
Here is a Q&A with Kerri Colangelo. 

Beautiful Worker Busy Queen Bee. This is my favorite snapshot of Kerri because of so many lovely details -the typewriter, her notes on looseleaf paper, her bangles, a brimming vibrant wardrobe with a series of suspender straps dangling, shopping bag that looks full of goodies :)

When did your love for vintage begin and what were some of your favorite labels or pieces from then? In the 80’s, my favorite shop was Contempo Casuals. This was also when I started wearing vintage clothing. I didn’t learn to thrift until my first year of college in 1988.

Kerri: "I didn’t even know about Louis Vuitton until 1989. That was two years after I graduated from high school. It was in college where I saw a very stylish girl sporting a Louis Vuitton bag. I told my mom about it. For my next birthday she bought me the exact one and I still have it to this day.  It was a Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 from The French Collection, which is no longer made."

You grew up along the coast and so I imagine that the beach played a big part in how you dressed. How did location influence what you wore? In 1987 I graduated high school and as my graduation present I was allowed to move to my parents beach condo free of charge with one of my friends for the summer.  With my weekly meager paycheck from The Body Shop, a clothing store at the Merritt Square Mall, I would buy the cutest outfits. You would think since all of my boyfriends were surfers or skateboarders, I would dress like that but I never did. Peplum mini-dresses and Madonna-styling mixed with thrift store finds. I remember one of my favorite outfits was from Esprit.  I called it my "Bumblebee Outfit". It was black and yellow polka dot leggings with a black and yellow striped shirt. Of course I had Converse to match -I owned them in every color!!

Is there anyone who influenced the way you dressed then? In high school, I was voted Best Dressed. My mom had a lot to do with that. She always updated me on what was “in style“. I was the first person in high school to wear a miniskirt. The principal actually called my mom and asked, “Do you realize that your child is wearing a very short skirt?“. My mom replied, ”Of course I do, don’t you read Vogue?”.

What were some songs that were your favorite if you have to create a playlist from the time (tell me why if you want)? As for music, I loved “New Wave .” I used to go to Visage Nightclub in Orlando every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night and loved all of that music! Some of my favorites: Depeche Mode, Book of Love, Gene Loves Jezebel, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Smiths, The Cure, REM.

 

 

Is there a movie you love that reflects your style in the 80's? Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club. I loved both of those movies.

❤️ Au Revoir, 2017

Kerri Colangelo

This winter I was able to drop into Paris, one of my favorite cities, to meet up with a couple of people whom I love. I made it a point to visit Colette, which has since officially closed its doors on December 20th. 
One of my favorite things to do when traveling is to visit all kinds of shops to get ideas for the store. Small charity shop, tiny boutique, high-end retail - they all offer a different experience. Colette was one that I respected and admired absolutely.
It is a sad farewell. Colette was known for its careful curation for fashion insiders. What I love most was the staff who were all sweet and attentive. No matter where we were in the labyrinth, you' d pick up something and they would offer to hold it for you. Then it all gets collected into a neat bundle at the front. You shop hands free (sound familiar?). The experience is very human, which I love. 

Inside Colette. (from L to R)  1. Brook with Anya Hindmarch's Chunky Eyes handbag. 2. Chanel Installation. 3. Detail of Chanel trainers with graphic textile on heel.  4. Mementos from 213 rue Saint Honore. Back in the day, they used to offer printable PDF magazines on their site. The design and illustrations were wonderful :)

 

The closing of a boutique this established reminds me of how important it is to support the small brick and mortar store. It is a reminder that the industry and the way that we shop is evolving with a heavier lean towards online shopping. With all that said, it makes me grateful that we are still kicking and thriving after all these years despite these changes. 
We believe in what we are doing and everyday we strive to offer you a unique and human shopping experience ; Each day that we are open is a simple reminder that you believe in us as well. This is so important to me and it makes me ever so grateful for our lovely customers who support us year after year. 

 

Snippets from the streets of Paris. (from L to R) 1. Street sign made better with stickers. Who needs a sign when you have GPS?  2. Scooter with Supreme box logo and my favorite Supreme sticker front and center, the daisy with crosshairs.  3. A curation of Nikes in apartment window.  4. A view from the Airbnb window.

 

Sit Down. Stand Up.  (from L to R)  1. Brook with Gucci Lady Web in the front, souvenirs from Colette in the back.  2. Brook and I leaping into 2018 :)

 

❤️  And so this is a gigantic thank you in 2017 and a humungous thank you in 2018. We love you and can't wait to start a fresh new year with you!
❤️  Happy New Year! â¤ï¸
