The Story

All my life, I've been looking for extraordinary pieces.
Fashion pieces that were original and out of the ordinary. I loved that clothes were an extension of our personality, a way of expressing ourselves.

I've always been told that "it's the little details that make the difference", and indeed, an original piece can transform an entire look, and I like these pieces to be the ones that don't make us "look like everyone else".

As the daughter of art dealers, I worked on my eye from an early age and began collecting my first vintage pieces in my early teens.
After many experiences in the world of fashion and interior design, I decided to focus on what thrilled me most: the love of products, materials, cuts and their stories.

Going in search of exceptional pieces and retracing their history, the passion to find pieces from the catwalks of the greatest couturiers, to bring up to date key pieces from previous collections, this is the desire that drives me and which is expressed through Vintage Operandi.

I select pieces one by one, visiting private customers who wish to sell their pieces.

I don't choose pieces by following trends, but I do choose what makes me tick at the time, thinking that if I find interest in it, someone else surely will too!

That's why our selection is eclectic, governed not by trends but by our own personal favorites.

We don’t sell SIMPLE bags nor clothes, but carefully picked and authenticated timeless pieces of fashion, each having a unique story.

With all my love, C


Of high quality and lasting value, or showing the best and most typical characteristics of a particular type of thing, especially from the past.


Modus operandi is a Latin term used to describe an individual's or group's habitual way of operating, which forms a discernible pattern.

‘Vintage Operandi’ Changing your way of consuming fashion.

Luxury brands are becoming more and more conscious about sustainability, but producing eco-friendly clothes may not be enough. At the peak of fast-fashion and overconsumption, we start to realize that our entire way of consuming has to change.

Acquiring second hand vintage pieces is the new trend of this era. We are entering a new cycle where we can think about fashion as an asset.

This is the new mantra of an eternal fashion.
