Thousands of unworn vintage items were recently discovered in a Glaswegian warehouse by web designer Bali Rakhra, whose father kept and stored the item after closing his clothing business in the 80s. “I haven’t come across anything on this scale before.

"It is good that it is high street rather than all that I Love the 70s stuff, as if all we wore were tank tops and platform boots. This offers a more real picture.” [Independent via Styleite]
