Sentimental Vintage Carefully Chosen and Curated

The name Èlan Solete came from a brainstorm with a loved one. I wanted to capture a personal experience with my ongoing love of vintage and antiquities and the process of discovering them. Èlan is a polysemous word in that it has multiple meanings from style and panache - to animal spirits- to spontaneity and freedom. Solete came about from the word, obsolete.
The enthusiasm that vintage holds for me is in the stories that could be told, the quality and craftsmanship, the time put in to making or manufacturing and the attention paid to style and design. Of course the pursuit is a blast especially when travel is involved.
