The Charm of Nostalgia
How We're Bringing Back Vintage Fashion
The fashion industry is constantly evolving, but the allure of vintage fashion never fades away. From retro-inspired styles to classic, timeless pieces, vintage fashion has a way of making a comeback time and time again. At Cord, we're proud to be a part of this movement, bringing back the allure of the vintage era with a modern twist. Our mission is to evoke the charm of vintage fashion, with a focus on quality, durability, and accessibility for modern-day women.
The beauty of vintage fashion lies in its ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia. It transports us back in time, reminding us of a simpler and more graceful era. And with the fast-paced and constantly changing world we live in today, it's no surprise that people are seeking out a return to vintage style. Vintage fashion is more than just a trend, it's a statement of authenticity, a celebration of craftsmanship, and a nod to the timelessness of quality.

Inspired by the earth. The colour palette.
Cord garments & accessories are designed in muted tones— either in earthy or a lush forest jewel palettes, invoking an air of the bygone eras.
Though we do borrow the mood from each season like using soothing tones for a warmer weather & deep shades for the winters- the shades we use are not very restrictive in nature.
Our clothing & accessories are rendered in seasonless shades, making them flexible for summer to winter both.
For an instance, Hiraeth- our fall winter 2021 collection features solid mustards, powdered blush & powdered blue. These colours evoke a festive feel when combined with the embroidered & delicate pintucks, making these pieces equally wearable in hot season too.
Look close. Eye the details.
