Any true vintage lover is familiar with the name Decades. The iconic retailer has been one of the most trusted places for stylists, stars, and other fashion lovers to source pre-loved, luxury pieces from bygone eras and the not-so-distant past alike since opening in 1997 — and it couldn't have earned this reputation without the expert eye of its founder Cameron Silver. Now, the King of Vintage is taking his curatorial talents to Malibu, by way of a pop-up that includes both vintage and contemporary pieces that exude the spirit of summer.
From Thursday, June 10 to Sunday, June 13, shoppers can peruse the colorful, vacation-ready clothing and accessories when Silver brings his treasures to Fred Segal's location at Malibu Country Mart. Not only was this collaboration destined due to the fact that both Decades and Fred Segal are such notable names in retail, but the latter also happened Silver's employer worked in high school. Call it kismet.
In addition to a trove of vintage delights for both men and women from Decades (think coverups and caftans plus designer pieces by the likes of Pucci and Missoni) the pop-up includes carefully chosen finds by sustainable and local labels as well.
Some such pieces you can expect to see if you stop by include upcycled tropical-print shirts by California-based brand Aquarius Cocktail, shorts made of Hawaiian barkcloth by L.A.'s own JungleGurl, brightly colored leather and canvas bags by Agnes Baddoo, and footwear by Malibu Sandals — to name just a few.
Fred Segal prides itself for spotlighting emerging — and often local — talents, so Silver's pop-up fits in perfectly with this ethos. And with the addition of top-tier vintage, Silver has created a shopping experience that will introduce retro fans to brand newer names and vice versa. So whatever your personal style, you're bound to find a thing or two to help you cultivate a summer wardrobe (or perhaps a resort capsule, depending on your plans for the season) that's easier on the earth, and will help you bring the tropical vibes wherever you're going—even if it's just hanging on the patio with a cocktail in hand.
