Zara’s latest collection is a re-issue of iconic classics from the archives

We all have that ‘one that got away’ item of clothing that we just narrowly missed out on in the shops, either because we deliberated about it for too long, or it was just so popular it sold out in nanoseconds.

Well, Zara knows how you feel and so it has launched a collection of re-editions of some of its most classic and iconic styles from the last few decades: the Zara Archive Collection. For once, we actually have a second shot at bagging those shoes, coats and dresses that we’ve silently held a candle for all this time.

Digging into the archives between 1996-2012, Zara has found 17 of its most standout items from across those years and re-made them – with some minor adjustments here and there to bring things up to date and make them 100 per cent wearable for now and years to come. All the classic hits are there, such as the white shirt, slip dress, camel coat, leather square-toed boots, leather trousers and more.
