A three-story building entirely dedicated to vintage clothing, a store/museum focused on the history of fashion during this century, with the out-of-the-ordinary possibility of being able, depending on the areas, in addition to purchasing, to also rent the items exhibited and thousands of used garments and accessories all scrupulously selected and classified.
This is A.N.G.E.L.O. Vintage Palace, a business founded by Angelo Caroli in 1978 in Lugo di Ravenna, his native town in the heart of Romagna, where he decided to create his ambitious project, a real historical archive of “vintage” items, garments worn in the past with historic and stylistic value, collected over the years from every part of the world.
A passion that initially born as an aesthetic attraction, has suddenly been transformed into a strong and special idea linked to the concepts of recovering and recycling. The A.N.G.E.L.O. historic brand has embraced ecological ethics even before that became fashionable. From the beginning Angelo has been distinguished for his attention and care to the Second-Hand: each item is selected, cleaned and labelled by him.
GROUND FLOOR / Casual & Recycled
Clothing for men, women and children, for all pockets and for all tastes: three rooms show the ‘60, ‘70, ‘80 and ‘90, mixing sports and military clothing, casual and recycled pieces, shoes, handbags and accessories, with a focus that is always current: denim.
FIRST FLOOR / Luxury & Vintage Cult
The Vintage Room houses the Cult pieces for him and her: iconic models and extravagant garments with tailored, unique shapes, the result of the genius and technical skill of famous designers who made fashion history. Original garments on sale with “reliable parentage” such as Chanel, Hermès, Emilio Pucci, YSL, Roberta di Camerino, etc. Here there is also a corner with a selection of bridal gowns.
PARTY ROOM / Rental
Distinctive clothes for special occasions, extravagant, amusing, evening, smoking, 1920s, 1970s and 1980s: all ideal garments for a theme party or an event, to add a retro and unique flavour to special occasions that only vintage is capable of conveying.
SECOND FLOOR / Archives
A passionate and careful selection through the years, it contains more than 120,000 garments, stored in the A.N.G.E.L.O. Archives, that tell more than a century of history of fashion. By appointment, the facility offers a professional consulting service and rental for style offices but is also available for shows, film, theatre and television productions and photography shoots.
