Vintage fashion history

The history of vintage fashion dates back to the 1920s and continues to the present day, having been influenced by different trends and cultural movements over time.

Vintage clothing has gained popularity in recent decades due to a growing interest in retro fashion, and especially due to increased awareness of sustainability and the reuse of clothing. Also, many people appreciate the quality and timeless style of this style, and look for unique pieces to include in their wardrobe.

At Kilo Shop we offer superior quality vintage garments, made from high-quality materials and strong tailoring techniques, making them durable and resistant to abrasion and wear. Our garments have a classic and timeless design that makes them relevant and desirable over time.

Keep in mind that high-quality vintage clothing often comes from times when fashion and clothing production were more artisanal and less mass-produced, making them unique and hard to find. For these reasons, our retro fashion is highly appreciated by collectors, fashion lovers and those who seek a personal and authentic style in their clothing.

Who invented the miniskirt? We tell you!

There is no more retro icon than…the miniskirt! A short piece of clothing that covers only the upper part of the legs, it was first popularized in the 1960s and became a symbol of sexual liberation and women’s liberation The miniskirt was created by British designer Mary Quant and became famous after model Jean Shrimpton wore it at the opening of a horse race in 1965. It became a key element of mod fashion and it was soon adopted by women all over the world as a way to show their independence and freedom.

Over the years, the miniskirt has been the subject of controversy and has been seen as both a form of female empowerment and a form of exploitation. However, it has been a recurring item in fashion and remains a popular garment today. It has evolved over time and has been reinterpreted by different designers, but it continues to be a symbol worldwide.

In our Freiburg store you can find this wonderful garment in its most vintage version. Come visit us and find out!


Benefits of buying clothes by weight - Kilo Shop sales model

One of the main characteristics of our business model is the sale of clothing by weight. Unlike the traditional model, buying by weight is a way to save money, find a wide variety of garments and support a more sustainable fashion cycle:

  1. Price: Clothing by weight is cheaper than clothing sold by the piece because it is sold based on weight rather than size, style, or brand.
  2. Assortment: By buying clothes by weight, it is possible to find a wide variety of clothes at more affordable prices, allowing shoppers to get more clothes for their money.
  3. Recycling and sustainability: Buying clothes by weight can be a way to support a more sustainable fashion cycle, since it reduces the amount of clothes that end up in landfills and encourages the recycling of garments. All in all, it’s an exciting and different experience as shoppers can browse and find unique and vintage clothing that may not be available in mainstream stores.


Get inspired by Mod fashion

At Kilo Shop we are at the forefront of the most transgressive retro fashion trends. This was mod fashion in its day, a very popular style in the 1960s in the United Kingdom. It is characterized by a fresh, vibrant and modern, and was inspired by the music and youth culture of the time. The signature garments of this movement are form-fitting and minimalist, with clean silhouettes and clean lines. Lots of bright colors and bold patterns like checks and stripes were used, and accessories like sunglasses and hats were an integral part of the look.

Mod fashion staples include skinny suits, brightly colored shirts, fitted dresses, and leather jackets. Platform boots and shoes were also popular, and many designer prints and patterns, such as flowers and checks, were used on clothing and accessories.

Today, mod fashion is still a bold and modern style, with a strong influence on contemporary fashion and an icon in more retro styles.
