The founder of Mexico City’s finest vintage store, Olympia de la Macorra spends half the year traveling to collectors markets and high-end fashion houses around the world to find precious vintage pieces for her boutique store. From band t-shirts to records, vintage PlayBoy’s, Chanel bags, and Louis Vuitton weekenders - Void’s historic and collectible pieces are housed in an even more vintage art-deco showroom from the 1930’s, with an unmissable neon “come in, we’re closed” sign.
Born with the love-for-fashion gene, de la Macorra met her now-associate at a party in L.A where they agreed that their shared home country was missing a vintage concept store that highlighted the best of past collections. Over the course of three years, their now notorious store carries century-old pieces (the oldest from just after the Civil War) from all over the world.
But not every vintage find makes its way into the store; in fact, a multitude of attentive steps take place before a piece is up for grabs. “It’s almost impossible to counterfeit Hermes’ 1960’s Kelly bag,” said de la Macorra. “Hermes is one of the easiest brands for detecting authenticity because of their consistent tendencies and the fact that their collections come out by color. For example, the orange Birkin bag came out in 1978, so if we see one with an older label we know it’s an imitation.”
