Mint Condition

Sure, you love vintage. The smell, however …

You know: the dust, the mothballs. It’s a little too, shall we say, authentic for comfort.

Save yourself the ordeal of wading through stale racks of designer castoffs and head to Le Fetiche. Owner Hanae Mauldin, already known for her spot-on taste in shoes, has recently added couture vintage to the mix with items that are ready-to-wear fresh despite their date of creation. Channel Bianca Jagger circa 1970 in flowing Ungaro; toss on a vintage Missoni for dinner with the girls; or prepare to conquer in killer Givenchy. If you absolutely must have something you can’t seem to find, Hanae will sniff it out for you. Within a week.

And better her nose than yours.

Le Fetiche, 1939 West Division Street, at Damen Avenue (773-252-5120).
