The designing duo behind What Goes Around Comes Around vintage fashion knows perhaps better than anyone that everything old becomes new again. After meeting in college, WGACA founders Gerard Maione and Seth Weisser graduated and became collectors — began traveling the world and amassing an impressive archive of antique clothing, jewelry, sunglasses and handbags by the likes of Chanel and Pucci. In time Maione and Weisser launched their own line of vintage-inspired clothing, which reflects the duo’s scholarly knowledge of garments and respect for authenticity. What Goes Around Comes Around’s aesthetic draws on influences from the 1880s to the 1980s, with a distinct rock 'n' roll edge. An industry secret no more, WGACA has outfitted everyone from Kanye West (spotted wearing the label’s vintage military jacket) to Nicole Kidman in its fabulous threads.
