Marisol Simó Ayuso's Profile

About

My name is Marisol, I was born in a little coastal village of
south-east Spain. Since I was a teenager, I was attracted by the
aesthetics of past decades, especially the 50's and 60's. Back then,
the only way to get vintage clothes was to raid my grandmothers´
wardrobes: from my grandma Celedonia I treasure a beautiful blue robe
that I still use everyday, from my grandma Isidora I got skirts and
dresses that I had to alter six sizes to fit me. When I was 17 years
old, during hot and sleepless summer nights, I made some dresses out
of 60's Burda magazines patterns.

About

My name is Marisol, I was born in a little coastal village of
south-east Spain. Since I was a teenager, I was attracted by the
aesthetics of past decades, especially the 50's and 60's. Back then,
the only way to get vintage clothes was to raid my grandmothers´
wardrobes: from my grandma Celedonia I treasure a beautiful blue robe
that I still use everyday, from my grandma Isidora I got skirts and
dresses that I had to alter six sizes to fit me. When I was 17 years
old, during hot and sleepless summer nights, I made some dresses out
of 60's Burda magazines patterns.

Later on, I left my home village to study Arts in Valencia. It was
there where I had the first opportunity to buy vintage clothes in the
flea markets but also, most importantly, I found shops and factories
that had stock of unworn vintage items. Since then I have found
vintage dead stocks in different places all around Spain, sometimes in
big cities and sometimes in the tiniest fishing village by the coast.

Nowadays I live in Barcelona. A year ago I opened my own vintage
online store in and started sharing these Spanish vintage treasures.
Some months ago, my friend, bandmate and similarly vintage aficionado
Evripidis, a greek artist from Athens who has been “adopted” by
Barcelona, joined me in this project. Together, we go “treasure
hunting”, searching for the most unique, charming and original
clothing items that wait patiently to come out in the light and be
worn proudly. We love each one of them and we are going to miss them
all, hope you enjoy them too!
