This word originates from the German language and describes a strong impulse or desire to travel. Almost everybody felt it at least once; this longing for discovering new places with unknown smells or food we never tasted.

The French word “bohemian” was originally used to describe travellers...

A woman who put tracks in the ‘80s fashion world.

Grace Jones was one of my big idols in the ‘80s (and still is). She was almost surreal-looking with her androgynous look and attitude.

Bonnie & Clyde

  Picture above is Fly the Fly Vintage's own interpretation of Bonnie & Clyde. The vintage dress you can find here , if you falled in love with the vintage linen trousers here and the really lovely vintage suspenders here. Unfortunately the vintage shirt and gloves is sold.   Please note that the items on the picture could be sold out, but we have a lot more vintage clothes for you in our shop!

In fact, the robberies were very ill conceived and characterised by many mistakes. Often, the gang was forced...
