Antonio Lopez
Fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez really captured the spirit of the ’80s when he knocked out this illustration for Vanity Fair. Not only a talented artist, Lopez was credited for having discovered some of the industry’s first supermodels, such as Tina Chow, Grace Jones, Jessica Lange, and Jerry Hall, whom he lived with in Paris at the start of her career.

Curator Corner: Chrissie Miller

Chrissie is one of the coolest chicks you’ll ever meet in New York. Just check out who visits her living room, aka Club Chrissie, a web show on Pharrell Williams’ channel, iamOTHER. When she’s not in her “Pee-Wee-esque” playhouse, she’s also a designer, a filmmaker, and, best of all, a self-described “vintage eBay lover.” We invited Chrissie into the new eBay platform so she can gather a collection of things that make her happy. Lucky for us she is now one of our Curators on the recently launched eBay Today.  

Jauretsi: Tell us the name of your first collection and how it inspired you?

Chrissie Miller: I’ve been naming all of my collections after song titles! My first collection is called “She’s So Cold.” It’s a Rolling Stones song. I was inspired by taking a trip to upstate New York and just wanting to dress like I am in the woods all the time! L.L. Bean, Patagonia, North Face — brands like that. Really practical, warm clothes with a touch of ’90s prep.

J: Now that eBay will be adding the “follow” button on collections, what types of things would you be interested in following on the site?

CM: VINTAGE! I am obsessed. I use eBay to buy 80% of my clothes: t-shirts, denim, dresses, coats, etc. Also, I just moved into a new apartment, so I have been looking for home things, as well. Lamps, a coffee table, vintage bookshelf.

J: In terms of your own personal work, what projects are you working on now or what can we expect to see soon?

CM: I just made a short film with Vans that I am super excited about!

J: What is your favorite eBay find ever?

CM: Mmm, that is hard because there are so many. I think it would have to be a Van Halen gold necklace that I had been looking for forever! (Seen above)

Founded in 1889, Carhaatt Workwear is still alive ‘n kicking. Built for function and utility, jackets like the one seen here — a blanket-lined canvas number circa 1970 — only get better with age. And having a non-precious jacket you can beat around all winter… now that’s a girl’s best friend.

We know, we know. It’s a million degrees outside. Who wants to shop for jackets? Well, we do. As any die-hard vintage shopper will tell you, the best time to find the choicest of pieces is when you’re shopping for opposite seasons. Case in point: This gorgeous, “archive worthy” Helmut Lang jacket circa 1998. Tuck this puppy into your closet and save it for a snowy day. Winter always comes around sooner than we think.

Into the Wild
By Jenny Bahn
Animal print coats — cheetah, in particular — have always been a little too, well, feral for my tastes. For whatever reason, it’s never been something I could pull off. That doesn’t stop me from appaulding the girls who do and can (Kate Moss for Supreme, anyone?). When considering a fur coat, I like to stay as animal friendly as I can, and I’m a big advocate of vintage for the sole reason that you’re not putting new demand for a product that sometimes utilizes inhumane practices. If you’re going to stay warm this winter, try to be as animal friendly as possible and, if you must go for fur, buy a gently used one. Here are some cheetah-print coats I found on eBay, as well as some pretty swank vintage furs.
