Besides hair colour and basic genetics, Kate Moss has apparently passed her thrifting talents onto her daughter Lila. You may have thought the most important thing to happen on Friday in Windsor was Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank, but it was, in fact, this very revelation. For, at the nuptials, a rare spotting of Lila caught her wearing a 1930s blush gown and at the after party that evening Kate wore a silky cream dress from the same era, which happened to be purchased from the same vintage dealer.
Going by the name ‘Lucindaportobello’ on Instagram, the dealer, which pops up at London markets, helped source Moss a vintage lace dress with puffed princess shoulders for Lila. On social media, Lucinda said, ‘Very proud to see #lilamoss looking beautifully chic in a #vintage30sdress from #lucindaportobello. Dressing the next generation of supermodels’. For the evening party, Kate wore a cream ankle-sweeping dress with a cross pattern across the front. The vintage dealer went on to say, ‘#katemoss in the most stunning #vintage30s #silkdress from me’.
This isn’t the first time Mossy has used Lucinda as a wardrobe resource. Scrolling through the dealer’s account reveals how key the market stall is to Kate’s occasion wardrobe. For an evening of DJing in April Moss wore a peach feather cape from Lucinda, before that she’d worn a 1930s chiffon daisy dress to an event in Chile and a glorious ombre pink chiffon gown from the same era on her birthday in January.
To find your own 1930s gown à la Mossy, Lucinda is popping up at the Hammersmith Vintage Fair in London on the 28th of October.
