"I'm interested in jewels. I only like antique jewelry because I like the stories attached to them. It's the life of the people that interests me. Also they are beautiful. Flowers and jewels are part of a woman's history. I like to look at these jewels and wonder if the woman was happy. For instance, I have a brooch which features a boat in the sea and on top there is a little gold rose and over this a spider. And I wonder who gave it to the woman? Was she a lucky woman? What does it mean?"Miuccia Prada
Isn't that an interesting quote from Miuccia Prada? It is exactly the way I feel about buying vintage and the only thing that I would add is that flowers and jewels and clothes are part of each woman's history.
