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.
They’ve specifically honed in on 7 collections in particular, the campaigns for which were shot on the likes of Kate Moss, Amber Valletta and Stella Tennant:
- Autumn/Winter 1996/97, Amber Valletta
- Autumn/Winter 1997/98, Amber Valletta
- Autumn/Winter 1998/99, Amber Valletta
- Autumn/Winter 1998/99, Carolyn Murphy
- Autumn/Winter 2003/04, Kate Moss
- Spring/Summer 2011, Stella Tennant
- Autumn/Winter 2011/12, Saskia de Brauw
Zara said: ‘Reviving Zara campaigns of the last decades, the collection features re-edited garments from past seasons that are showcased through a selection of campaign images, giving them an updated look.’
The full Zara Archive Collection is available to buy online and in stores now – we’ll race you there.
