We are artists at our core, with an intense love of self-expression and artistic dress. The fundamental principles of beauty, nature and art guide our resourceful and crafty approach to fashion with an emphasis on recycling a la vintage. This aesthetic philosophy, coupled with our love of both history and fashion, has us scouring the globe for extraordinary vintage to recycle. We approach each piece like an exquisite work of art, striving for the most unique collection.
And much like the life’s work of any great artist, this is an evolving story - our story - that will be re-imagined, re-inspired and re-written through you, our canvas.
OUR ADOPTED FOUR PRINCIPLES
What came together as though by magic to summarize our philosophies and missions, or our past, present, and future.
- 1 - Self expression is the dominant necessity of human nature. William Winter
- 2 - Art is the most profound mode of individualism. Andy and Edie
- 3 - Art for Art’s sake, beauty for beauty’s sake… one must either wear a work of art or be a work of art. Oscar Wilde
- 4 - And where we go from here, we don’t know, but it won’t be boring. David Bowie
BEHIND THE NAME
Ana Chronos comes from taking the etymology of the term anachronism, defined as something out of time. The Greek word "Ana," against, and "Chronos," time, encompasses our tendencies toward the rebellious. Though many designers already derive inspiration from the past, we see Ana Chronos as an opportunity to pay homage to past fashion by employing vintage pieces into our showroom selections as well as our design creations.
