There are few fashion retailers who represent the Scandinavian lifestyle as well as Grandpa does. They know that being a modern retailer means applying a sustainable way of thinking to their business model. That is why Make it last are extra happy to be working together with them in this unique collaboration.
Grandpa came to us with a great idea — to let Make it lasts fashion team into their storeroom in Stockholm, letting us browse their entire archive of previous collections from the designer brands that they represent.
We obviously couldn’t say no to this. And we ended up staying for quite a while… What we found? Timeless pieces with that modern sensibility that defines the sleek and minimalist Scandi-style that we love.
We styled the selected, yet unsold pieces in an inspirational fashion shoot, and will be selling them—at a great price—at our fashion flea market in Stockholm on 7 May, as well as on Grandpa. This way, pieces that were (almost!) forgotten have a new chance to be bought, worn and loved—the way they where intended to.
Make it last and Grandpa look forward to seeing you at the flea market on 7 May between 12-16 pm at A house, Östermalmsgatan 26A. Welcome!
