Where do you source your items?

All of the garments belong to an extensive personal collection curated by Octavius La Rosa, acquired from collectors all over the globe for over a decade.


Where does the knowledge of the garments come from?

Octavius has a broad range of knowledge for the design houses and has been intensely researching for many years via books, magazines, catalogues and the internet. His knowledge and passion for CDG in particular allows him to curate his collection with a keen understanding for each individual piece. His extensive offline personal collection consists of W&LT runway samples and a 1980's CDG archive which is currently being documented and catalogued.

How do I know if the item will fit me?

The measurements of the garment are displayed in the listing information, we measure all items laid flat across the front and the measurements are recorded in centimetres. If in doubt, compare the measurements to a similar item of clothing you own for an accurate idea of fit. If the size is not displayed on the tag, it is considered a ‘free’ size. If the size is marked on the clothing tag, we will record it but please note that sizes may vary, for example, if it is marked a small it may be larger than your regular small as it is intended to be worn with an ‘oversized’ look.  We strongly advise to check measurements before adding it to your cart!
