Vintage Delirium

A journey through time in the history of fashion

Franco Jacassi is not just any name but a true institution in the field of vintage. Writer, gallery owner, bibliophile, collector, curator of exhibitions, Jacassi was able to make his passion for the search for rare and dated pieces his profession, making him famous internationally up to the pages of the New York Times thanks to his shop and showroom Vintage Delirium.

Vintage Delirium - Milano

His showroom was born in 1985, in a semi-hidden courtyard of a historical building. You enter going through an anonymous door and, when you step inside, you find yourself immersed in a vault of precious treasures, neatly catalogued and displayed in period furniture. Every corner and every wall reveal original garments, catalogued by age and origin. Some of these are so rare that they are not for sale but only to loan.

Cultured and passionate about design, style and fashion, Franco Jacassi has collected an innumerable number of unique pieces: suits, sumptuous embroidered dresses, crocodile micro bags, clutch bags, ’20s shoes. Vintage Delirium is a place where you can find any tipe of vintage clothing, even menswear, including English haberdashery and Neapolitan tailoring, with authentic gentleman accessories such as early-19th century silk ties, top hats and antique leather cigar cases.

Not only finished garments but also their components. Jacassi is in fact also nicknamed Mr. Button. In fact, he boasts a collection that exceeds seventy thousand models, reaching almost ten million copies. Not any buttons but unique pieces from the 60s, made by iconic brands of fashion such as the historic golden golf balls of Hermès or the turtles of Valentino.

Among the favorite destinations of designers and researchers, the atelier of Via Sacchi in Milan has seen important names in the history of fashion pass through its rooms. People like Gianni Versace, Azzedine Alaia, Thierry Mugler, Miuccia Prada, Giorgio Armani, and many others have dug and scrounged among the hangers looking for the inspirations and details that characterized their collections. Gianfranco Ferrè bought here the golden velvet ribbons from the 1920s to make his own Christmas gifts.
