About Us

It’s not just a vintage clothing store. It’s not just a carefully selected collection of jewelry, hats, shoes, belts, vintage bags to go crazy for. It’s not just an archive of accessories featuring all eras and styles. It’s not just that every object you touch has a magical history of time and fantastical characters.

So what is it? Aloe&Wolf is a sensorial experience. A journey through time, I dream about locking myself inside one of the most beautiful vintage shops ever visited, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

When I walk through Aloe’s doors, I am not always sure what to buy, but am certain to take a journey through time and more importantly, fashion. Let’s be transparent: this odyssey allows me to enter hundreds of closets; I stand next to elegant ladies subtly perfumed with face powder or lay on a sunny beach wearing a Pucci sarong listening to the ebb and flow of the waves. I am at a café in Pigalle with that unmistakable Kelly, listening to the music of clinking glasses and subdued customer chatter, then quickly transported to New York’s Fifth Avenue in the springtime, yearning for that red feathered hat.

n short, Aloe will set the backdrop for my personal film, and depending on the day, the attraction can be fatal. It will be for you too. When Aloe and Giada see me walking towards the store, they understand it’s not “only” for that dress, but because that day I want a new film!
