Phipps Men’s Spring 2022

PRE-LOVED: Phipps is teaming with Los Angeles retailer Departamento, one of its stockists, to offer its Phipps Gold Label line of customized vintage pieces at the world-renowned Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, Calif., later this month.

They will host a pop-up booth at the monthly event on July 11, offering selected items including T-shirts, accessories, vintage sportswear, denim and some runway pieces.

Based in Paris, Phipps was founded in 2018 by Spencer Phipps with the intention of offering sustainable, well-designed clothing for men. He launched the Gold Label concept last year online, offering customized vintage and deadstock pieces as part of a mission to curb overproduction in the fashion industry. A capsule of pieces from the line was shown with the label’s spring 2022 collection last month, in addition to its first pieces for women.

More and more brands are recognizing the potential for resonating with sustainably minded consumers by tapping into the fast-growing resale market.

The Rose Bowl Flea Market, reputed to be the best in the world and a magnet for vintage lovers and celebrities alike, attracts around 20,000 visitors each month.
