What Goes Around Comes Around is one of my favorite vintage shops in New York. So when we were invited to preview their fall collection, I was more than happy to do so.
The company’s creative director Gerard Maione presented a mixed collection of vintage-inspired pieces. Lots of fur, shearling, leather, tees and embroidered tops lined the racks. Maione said of his inspiration, “Architecture, music and travel are always muses for me when I design. This season, I see NYC’s Park Avenue Armory as the backdrop for the designs; specific features like chain-wrapped columns and ornate iron fixtures inspired the detail-oriented creations.”
It was those detailed, embellished garments that were some of my favorite pieces. Denim and leather jackets were fitted with metal chains, and plaid button-downs were studded, laced and fringed. It was nothing the label hasn’t done before (Maione’s been designing now for close to six years), but he knows a good thing when he sees it---or in this case, designs it.
The ornate flannel shirts, which are covered with different types of studs, are some of the best selling items in store. I can understand why. They’re classic, comfortable and easy---and one might even argue, season-less. The super-soft shirts are ideal for heavy layering in the winter and light layering during the summer.
If you’re tired of your everyday flannel and want something with a bit of an edge, or just need to add to your collection, WGACA has quite the selection.
