Phnom Penh Thrifting

I was in Phnom Penh recently and as expected I went thrifting. It's something you would totally expect from me, right? There wasn't much that I got this time but I still found some really interesting pieces to add to my collection.

My best find is this Y's by Yohji Yamamoto jacket.

At 50cents it's such a really, really good bargain, right? I'm so happy to find this.

This Nicole for Men top has a very interesting texture.

I love the distressed fabric and the web-y nature of it.

There's something genius about Margaret Howell and how I'm attracted to her quiet sense of grace and approach to design. I've got a few of her jackets, shirts and cardigan and it's just a staple go-to for me when I'm feeling like I need to be polished and grown-up without looking like my grandfather. Her style is classic but still feel young and timeless.

This jacket is giving off a very Ann Demeulemeester vibe with the color and frayed details so I picked it up.

H. Naoto is known for his gothic lolita chic street style. This bondage inspired sweater is good enough example from this designer to pass.

I also found some Zucca jackets and top but it was too expensive and plain for my taste so I let it go. I'm going back to Phnom Penh again and probably that time I'll find a more substantial amount of pieces to collect. I wish I find more Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garcons for my collection.
