LES MISTONS offers a selection of the finest original vintage children's clothing, mostly new old stock but also pre-loved pieces, selected with great care.
Our clothes were produced in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s (a few 80’s pieces might have made their way through the stock, it means they’re really worth it!).
The large majority of them are new and unworn (that's what we call « new old stock »). They come from old factories, shops, sample lots, individuals who kept those gems hidden for decades and made their way to us through auctions, direct sales or attic clearing. Very often, these will also still have their original tag attached.
Finding them really feels like a treasure hunt !
Some of the clothes are pre-loved but we take great care of picking the ones that are in excellent condition only. The clothing item’s detailed information will indicate if the piece is New or Pre-loved.
As for the production rules of these decades, the majority of the clothes were lovingly made within Europe and USA, with most of them being produced in France and United Kingdom.
"My inspiration comes from flowers and plants that we see all around us, in gardens, fields even cracks in the pavement. I particularly love the secret worlds inside these flowers, in the patterns and textures hidden away that give a continuing sense of promise and renewal.
Until 2005 my work had been mainly in the domestic & functional arena, but then I decided to work on larger, often one off, sculptural pieces. So far, I have concentrated on the forms of seed pods and fruiting bodies which ties in with my earlier work, but which looks completely different.
I like to play with scale and will often imagine the size that a plant must appear to an insect...what is it about the flower that attracts or repels? Often I will scale my sculpture up so that we can have an 'insects eye view' of it."
"I work in stoneware, throwing the basic shape of the sculpture, then I alter and model onto it. This gives me a certain speed and control which is the way I prefer to work. My pieces are high fired so that they can go into an interior or exterior environment.
My glazes are chosen to compliment the form and are often slightly chrystalline or irradescent, this makes the pieces glow."
Contemporary dance fuels me as a painter by presenting beautiful, passionate, emotional, and extraordinary movements of the body in space. I work with a variety of media, especially water-based paints, to create worlds of theatrical dance through drips, splashes, and rivulets of colour. I work as a full time painter and live in West Sussex. www.janedenman.com
