Clean racks of classic pieces, light music and a sophisticated atmosphere greet you the second you walk into VINCE. Located at 1701 Walnut Street, VINCE serves Philadelphia’s most fashionable men and women. VINCE specializes in sophisticated, fashion-forward clothing, shoes and accessories for both men and women.
With less than 40 stores open nationally, Philly should feel lucky to be blessed with their own VINCE store. VINCE carries iconic essentials that are impossible not to fall in love with. Natalie Faddis, assistant Manager at VINCE, explains what makes VINCE unique is “the ability to take the classic looks from season to season and pull them out again. That’s the beauty of what we do. You could have bought something here three years ago and you can still wear it now and it seems like it still fits.”
VINCE caters to shoppers from their mid-20’s to their mid-40’s. VINCE portrays sort of a business casual style but still very fashion-forward. Items are slightly more expensive with prices ranging from about $100 to about $1,000.
Everything is very well made and the textures and materials that are used in their pieces are phenomenal. From fur to suede, the textures at VINCE are sure to wow. Faddis states “ we’re all about textures. Textures are what make our looks easy to style, textures make it easy to elevate a look.”
VINCE is best known for their joggers and scuba style jackets – two trendy styles that will take you everywhere this season. Faddis also loves their leather leggings. And really how could we not love them? Faddis explains “our leather leggings are so easy to wear, so versatile; you can throw them with sneakers or you can throw them with heels and for me, it’s all about investment pieces and our leather leggings are definitely investment pieces.”
Right now, VINCE has begun getting in their spring collection. The collection presents a fresh slew of gorgeous neutral colors and envy-worthy sandals. You can stop by the store to check out and shop their new pieces. Additionally, Philadelphia shoppers can look forward to a new VINCE shop opening up in King of Prussia mall this summer.
