Fashion Clothing Meet the Cool-Girl Vintage Store Behind Harper’s Best 'White Lotus' Outfits For ‘90s Moschino swimsuits and sheer Gaultier dresses, look to the Barcelona-based Los Féliz shop. By Danielle Fox Published on January 18, 2023 @ 11:40AM Pin Share Tweet Email Photo: Courtesy / HBO Beloved by ‘90s Italian and French vintage devotees, Barcelona-based Los Féliz has operated for years online as an IYKYK gem of the market. Its weekly Instagram sales are stocked with pieces that will haunt your dreams — translucid Baccarat necklaces, Kenzo fishnet dresses, Moschino everything, really — but at prices less nightmarish than vintage slingers of similar stock. There's a Sneaky Way to Shop the Exact Outfits From Shows Like 'The Nanny' and 'Friends' Per owner and founder Nadia’s vision, the store specializes in ethereal looks — “something dreamy, something a mermaid would want to wear” — meant for having (or inspiring) fun. It’s like, “Oh, I’m going on vacation, I want to wear this perfect dress,” Nadia says, which made the store a perfect fit to clothe the White Lotus’s horny opulence.

HBO Costume designer Alex Bovaird has said she uses Instagram tags to research what guests and locals are wearing when planning Mike White’s vacation-core show. To help pull pieces for filming in Sicily, Bovaird sent Nadia mood boards and references explaining each character’s style. Much of season two’s swimwear hails from Los Féliz — including the Black Loewe swimsuit that Harper (Aubrey Plaza) wears. In it, she delivers the casually damning line, “I don’t watch Ted Lasso.” With its gold hardware and body-hugging lines, the suit sent Redditors Google searching and commerce editors pitching a wave of “where to shop” articles, but you won’t find the original. Once it returned from set (most pieces are rented), Nadia put it back up for sale. These Are the 12 Best Places to Buy Swimsuits Online “Now I regret it. I was like ‘where is it?’” Does Nadia think the buyer knows what they have? “Probably not.” A Loewe black swimsuit from Los Féliz, worn by Harper on White Lotus.

I’m glad it was not Portia,” Nadia admits, laughing. “I didn’t love her outfits. I know it’s on purpose and I think it’s actually a very well-made character and actually very realistic, but I’m glad it was for Harper mostly or Daphne or Mia.” A silk Lolita Lempicka dress worn by Harper on White Lotus.

When I point out how modern-looking it was, Nadia responds that good vintage “has the essence of what is being made constantly.” I'm On Etsy All the Time, and These Are My 15 Favorite Vintage Shops The starfish earrings on Mia (Beatrice Grannò) in episode two (pictured here) are also from the store. Made by an Italian brand in the ‘90s, they’re equal parts whimsical and sculptural, playful but elegant — styles all signature to Los Féliz. “Anything with a starfish or shell — never fails.” Pink Dior swimsuit and starfish earrings, later worn by Mia (Beatrice Granno) on White Lotus.

"She seems very realistic.” Daphne (Meghann Fahy) wearing a Moschino from Los Féliz. HBO Born on the Spanish island Majorca, Nadia moved to Barcelona for college and caught the vintage bug. “In Majora, we didn’t really have flea markets, so I started going here to one and I just got super addicted. I would go almost every day to the flea market.” Nadia started organizing flea markets herself, renting out stalls for ten euros to friends. From there, she graduated to having her own “little corner” in a local store and nine years ago, launching a Big Cartel shop. “It took me months and months to sell something online. It was like the ‘Nasty Gal Era.’ It was just normal physical stores that had vintage,” Nadia says. “Online? I didn’t even know that was a thing.” Mia wearing a vintage Dior swimsuit from Los Féliz. HBO I found the store online through its collaborations with Gil Rodriquez, a slow-fashioned brand also followed by all of my Instagram crushes. Most of Nadia’s clientele are American. She's currently planning to bring her Mediterranean wares to the states twice this year, including, potentially, her first New York City pop-up.
