Putting the ‘H’ in American Heritage

Published November 20, 2013

“I’m not about disposable shopping,” says fashion historian Cameron Silver. Since he first opened his famed vintage boutique Decades in L.A. 16 years ago, Silver has been spreading the word: “I think of fashion, of dressing, as art.”

One person who agrees with Silver is fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. A longtime customer of Decades, Hilfiger approached Silver to collaborate on a collection of carefully curated vintage pieces for his eponymous label’s L.A. flagship store. Silver scoured vintage tradeshows across the U.S. for iconic pieces—from a ’60s shift dress, to the sequined ’80s top, and ’70s houndstooth blazer. With gems like these, it’s not hard to see where Hilfiger gets his inspiration from for his classic, clean, preppy aesthetic.

THE CAMERON SILVER VINTAGE CAPSULE COLLECTION IS AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT TOMMY HILFIGER IN LOS ANGELES FROM TODAY, NOVEMBER 21.
