Split Pea Vintage

I was recently introduced to Split Pea Vintage and their impressive lookbook. It's shot entirely in the most perfect white-walled flat, with endless potted plants and old bicycles and, for a small independent company, their styling could easily give Urban Outfitters a run for their money.


What really strikes me about this particular company is how directional the pieces they select are and how easily they could integrate with a very contemporary wardrobe. They mix a relaxed Californian beach vibe - tie dye cropped t-shirt, check! cropped denim vest, check! - with something a little more... Oxbridge. Be prepared to encounter a few battered pairs of Oxford brogues, sheer floral blouses and pencil skirts in classic shades mixed into the acid rinsed denim melting pot.

Split Pea Vintage is run by the lovely Rachel and her partner and she informs me that she currently has another thirty plus items that will be added to the collection shortly. And don't be mislead by the female-fronted lookbook campaign: the shop stocks vintage clothing for both men and women. I may take a look now for Christmas list ideas...
