Revue

Terry Richardson, the owner of Revue, a tiny boutique on 39th street, has been into vintage clothing for 16 years. Her love of fashion — watching old styles reinvented over and over again — makes her seem psychic. "Vintage teaches you what's coming up in fashion long before it hits," Richardson says. "You know what people are going to want next season — you can just feel it." This summer, people wanted candy colors, plastic jewelry, simple flats and high-waisted cotton dresses, and Richardson came through, big time. She sold dresses from brands such as Collective Clothing and jewelry from Steven Shein — stuff you'd expect to see in Los Angeles — thanks to her buyer, a former KU Med student who relocated to the West Coast. She also has a relationship with a factory in India that manufactures re-imagined vintage styles sold exclusively at Revue. "We're really pleased to help a factory that feeds 30 families and can duplicate vintage clothing that actually fits people. We don't sell online, just in-store, and that keeps it really special," Richardson says. Most important, Richardson's vintage-rooted philosophy keeps her inventory affordable. "We like to have fun, Anthropologie-looking stuff at a completely different price point. That's part of what I love about vintage clothing — you get something really cool for not much money." Which is crucial when you need to wear something new right now.
