Out and about....behind every great man is a ....
Kristina is the wife of the designer Cosmo Wise of De Rien. De Rien is a father and son collaboration. Their roots are in vintage fashion but for them unlike Oxfam for instance 'good condition' is a relative term. These are clothes that have been worn and worn. But is is a style that is catching on with the likes of Pete Docherty for example. "Since joining the business a few years ago, Cosmo has developed a line of new clothes that have been made from the vintage fabric/clothing they source and sell." While developing this new avenue to the business which they sell through Hostem they still sell their vintage clothing in Spitalfields on a Thursday and Portobello on a Friday.
Kristina is wearing a De Rien coat, vintage dress and shoes and H&M tights.
