Sprezzatura is the art of looking great, but without fussiness. This Italian word succinctly describes Baltimore’s growing fashion community, an expansive umbrella for locally designed and custom made, as well as vintage clothing. Sprezzatura is a look that is casual but intentional, anything that grabs the attention but is seemingly effortless. It can be sporty yet artsy, comfortable but never sloppy. The growing Remington neighborhood, located between Hampden and Station North, might not be on your fashion radar yet, but there are a number of locally owned shops and restaurants that have made it a destination for books, cocktails, amazing smelling soap, plants, outdoor dining–and fashion.
We decided to send photographer E. Brady Robinson to Remington to visit two fashion destinations: The Cahoots Brothers, a shop that carries local and handmade products, including Baltimore-printed and vintage clothing, art, ceramics, and home goods, and Get Shredded, a vintage shop featuring clothing and housewares previously located in Charles Village.
Winter tends to be a time when we bundle up and get frumpy, but the fashion-forward individuals at Get Shredded and Cahoots Brothers are giving us life in these frigid months, offering us not only warmth, but color, texture, and style. From Get Shredded, Robinson highlights curated vintage looks by Sarah Autrey, and from Cahoots, a selection of local designers to watch and wear.
No excuses, Baltimore! It’s time to up your winter fashion game and Remington is now your next stop for unique, stylish, and cozy looks.
