Decades is the illustrious vintage and haute consignment retailer in Los Angeles, worshipped by fashionistas and collectors alike for an unparalleled collection of designer clothing and accessories dating from the 1920s to today. Known for their discerning eye, co-owners Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos personally oversee the acquisition of an edited selection of authentic vintage treasures and future collectibles.
Their impact in the fashion industry is recognizable even among those who have never walked into the boutique; their finery is seen on women across the globe in places like Dubai, Moscow and Tokyo, who regularly snatch up a couture gown or one-off necklace online at the Decades ecommerce site.
Their clientele in Los Angeles is a veritable who's who of Hollywood's elite, which includes Julianne Moore, Selma Blair, Charlize Theron, among many others. Renowned stylist Rachel Zoe regularly goes bananas over their unique finds.
And Decades can find beautiful, timeless vintage and modern pieces like no one else. Silver, with his encyclopedic knowledge of fashion, roams the world's auctions and private collections, scooping up pristine Alaia, Hermes and Dior vintage glamour. He focuses on modern, sexy, unstudied and alwaysalluring pieces that intertwine vintage with contemporary; the results are never a flashback. Garkinos travels the globe gaining access to exclusive closets and rescuing gently to never used clothing and accessories directly from celebrities, stylists and overzealous shoppers.
In his signature move, he personally edits his clients' closets, culling singular pieces from iconic labels including Chanel and Christian Louboutin as well as from cutting-edge, emerging designers like Alexander Wang and Rick Owens, selling the pre-loved items at prices of up to 80% off retail.
