If you’ve ever wanted to be a ’50s socialite—and believe us, we do—Adhesif’s Fall/Winter collection will make you swoon. Inspired by high tea in the ’50s, Vancouver-based designer Melissa Ferreira creates all of her one-of-a-kind designs from vintage fabrics and vintage-inspired, hand-appliqued embellishments. Some pieces, like the Bascule Blazer, bring to mind the tailored elegance of Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story, making them the perfect fit for the high-society lady.

ONE LUMP OR TWO?

Ferreira’s designs draw on her years as a buyer for the vintage-clothing industry. Browsing the line, you can tell she’s spent some time around well-tailored pieces. But don’t fret, it’s not stuffy in the Adhesif house; Ferreira throws some surprising modern details on the clothes that make them perfect for the 21st century.

The vintage pieces include surprising modern details that bring them into the 21st century.

Ferreira uses vintage fabric because of its quality and character. She believes they add a special personality to each of her pieces, not to mention environmental responsibility. Besides keeping waste from landfills, Adhesif also makes all its clothing is locally in British Columbia.

Cheers to Adhesif for bringing one of the best decades of style back to the sustainable streets. Now let’s go out and have a martini darling, we’re positively exhausted.
