With their origins in the markets of Camden and Portobello Road in London, it’s not surprising that the number 1 thing people love about Traffic People is their quirkiness.
Since 2002, they’ve been bringing a contemporary twist, for the woman who desires a timeless design with the right amount of naughtiness to reflect her unique inner style.
Traffic People was devised by Louise Reynolds and Mark Readman, out of a love for vintage inspired fashion and beautifully dressed women of eras past; think Lauren Bacall, Anita Pallenburg, Ava Gardiner and Bianca Jagger, to name a few.
Their design ethos is to encompass the latest fashion trends in a contemporary style with a vintage, edgy feel. They consistently make use of beautiful, unique print and details.
The fit and the fabric never fails to delight with cleverly cut pieces in fabulously unique quality. This ensures the range is a step ahead of many other independent brands – they have a small in-house team and don’t mass produce their styles. The designs are unique, with sometimes as little as 50 pieces only being produced. This air of exclusivity is very attractive, and the vintage or antique feeling runs through their influences from the 20s and 30s elegance, through the 50s wiggle dress, and even the occasional nod to the 70s disco glamour era. Each piece reflects the designer’s whimsy, and shows off their love for timeless fashions.
