Chuck’s Vintage has recently opened a flagship retail outlet in New York City.
The Calfornia-based company was established in 2006 and is a staple for historical fashion. Clients can purchase vintage accessories and garments from different eras. Their wide selection of timeless pieces caught the attention of many well-known celebrities such as Steve Jobs, Dolly Parton, Robert Plant, Morrisey, etc. The founder of Chuck’s Vintage, Madeline Cammarata, passed away in November 2020 due to a sudden illness. Vinnie Cammarata, her husband, hosted a private party to pay tribute to Madeline and the business. The party was held in honor of her legacy at Classic Cars of Manhattan, where several notable guests were in attendance. The evening also included live entertainment from DJ Lee Kalt and vocalist Xandra K.
The Knockturnal spoke with Sara Ishag, the Interium Cheif Business Officer for Chuck’s Vintage regarding, the business and maintaining Madeline’s vision. Ishag stated that ensuring “every part of the brand represents what she would want it to represent, and that’s kind of what we’re doing. Putting pieces of the puzzle together, making sure we have the right teams and people she would have loved to work with had she been here.”
The new store will carry a wide variety of vintage pieces of denim and vintage American workwear. Doors will officially open in October in Manhattan at 173 East 91st Street in the Basement. They also have plans to reopen a new store in California in 2022.
