Sweet Disorder Vintage is the passion of owner Kate Russel. Our clientele includes celebrities, fashion labels, costume designers, museums and design archives worldwide.
The name 'Sweet Disorder' comes from a poem by Robert Herrick. It perfectly captures the spirit of 'wild civility' in every garment offered by Sweet Disorder Vintage.
Delight in Disorder
BY Robert Herrick
A sweet disorder in the dress
Kindles in clothes a wantonness;
A lawn about the shoulders thrown
Into a fine distraction;
An erring lace, which here and there
Enthrals the crimson stomacher;
A cuff neglectful, and thereby
Ribands to flow confusedly;
A winning wave, deserving note,
In the tempestuous petticoat;
A careless shoe-string, in whose tie
I see a wild civility:
Do more bewitch me, than when art
Is too precise in every part.
