Lauren Santo Domingo Opens Up Her Vintage Black Book
Lauren Santo Domingo Opens Up Her Vintage Black Book

As the co-founder and Chief Brand Officer of Moda Operandi, Lauren Santo Domingo is no stranger to the latest and greatest sartorial creations, but, as it turns out, she’s equally drawn to the world of vintage. "Even on the runway I look for things that are seasonless and I could wear for many years” muses Santo Domingo, who counts a 1960s Yves Saint Laurent safari dress (once worn by both Veruschka and Betty Catroux) as one of the most treasured pieces in her wardrobe. "With vintage, everything has stood the test of time. It’s the definition of timeless.”

Such a passion for seeking out rare and one-off finds dates back to her teenage years in Greenwich, Connecticut, when she would take the train into Manhattan in search of old Levi’s at Andy’s Chee-Pees, Trash & Vaudeville, and a handful of other East Village shops. "I remember reading in a magazine that Chloë Sevigny had donated all of her clothes to this one thrift store below her apartment, so I would always go there because I figured there would be good stuff... and there was!” she recalls with a laugh.

These days, with homes in Gramercy Park, Southampton, Paris, and Cartagena, the globe trotter’s shopping black book has expanded beyond downtown New York; she gets her glassware in Venice, linens from Portugal, and “everything else” in Tokyo. Here, from a Parisian flea market to an Italian jewelry bazaar brimming with heavy beads and chunky accessories, Santo Domingo shares her favorite vintage destinations across the world—plus, the Resee finds she’ll be adding to her virtual cart.


Lauren's Favorite Vintage Spots

Paropamiso

is an amazing vintage jewelry store in Venice. Venice was once the crossroads of the world, and this shop feels very much like that. It’s a multicultural bazaar of jewelry, heavy beads, and really chunky pieces that all feel like they have a lot of history to them.

Marché Aux Puces de Saint-Ouen

When I’m in Paris, I go to the Marché Aux Puces de Saint-Ouen flea market every weekend. This summer, I was in Paris for three weeks and I went three times. One weekend I’ll do the objets and the next I’ll do books. There’s truly something for everyone.

The Manhattan Vintage Show

The Manhattan Vintage Show, which comes to New York every October, is pretty major. It takes over the whole first floor of the Metropolitan Pavilion in Flatiron. It’s definitely more for trade, but I like to go right to the source. It’s ground zero for vintage.
