Mandy Speers Volpe founded her namesake brand during the height of the Global Pandemic in spring 2020, when plenty of time at home and a new perspective on life struck inspiration. Now, a little over a year later, Mandy Speers Volpe sells several carefully curated collections of new, renewed, vintage and reworked fashion and accessories. All items, whether vintage or new, are one-of-a-kind, made from thoughtfully sourced and recycled fabrics, and are created to encourage chic, sustainable, individual style.
With a trained eye for elegance and a keen attention to detail, Mandy transforms what is old into something new. Mandy Speers Volpe is a brand that encourages customers to buy vintage whenever possible to help slow the need for fast fashion and keep garments in play for longer, supporting our planet and looking uniquely stylish while doing so.
The concept of breathing new life into preloved garments is fundamental to Mandy’s vision – what is old is new again. Mandy is a breast cancer survivor and this thinking was fundamental to her getting through aggressive treatment and multiple surgeries. She believes in second chances.
Mandy’s first collection focused on vintage hostess dresses, popular in the 1960s and 1970s with women who wanted to play the role of a tasteful hostess while still being comfortable in their own homes. These stunningly simple garments rose to the height of fashion when in home entertaining was all the rage. Since the Pandemic, and plenty of in home get togethers, Mandy repurposes the gowns to be inclusive of every body. The gowns are incredibly comfortable and flattering on all body types.
Mandy discovered an entire world of other beautiful vintage pieces – from sweaters and jean jackets to cocktail dresses and skirts, which she added to the collection of reworked clothing – “Reworked by MSV”. Her ambitions continued - in the spring of 2021, she took the brand even further, sourcing sustainable, luxe cottons from across the world to develop and produce her own luxury beach caftans, designed for comfort and style when on vacation at the beach, pool or out to dinner. Her caftans are easy to wear and care for. Offered in an array of patterns, colors, and styles, Mandy’s caftans are all one-of-a-kind, extremely flattering, and extraordinarily soft. And she didn’t stop there! Next, Mandy extended her line with a collection of fun and funky accessories – customers can shop vintage hand painted Hermes scarfs, hand beaded earrings, and renewed L.L. Bean Boat and Totes.
Priced carefully, with a budget in mind, Mandy’s beautifully curated collection of reworked clothing and accessories is designed to encourage sustainable self-expression through individual fashion. After all, you’ve got vintage soul + new spirit!
Mandy donates 10% of all sales to charity through her "Charity of The Month" program.
