Dallas fashion mastermind Brian Bolke is at it again, this time with a partnership between LA-based vintage store Decades and his luxury McKinney Avenue store, Forty Five Ten.

Since 1999, Decades owners Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos — whom you might recognize from Bravo TV's Decades: No Risk, No Reward — have consigned 21st century designer clothing and accessories from the closets of celebrities, stylists and fashion icons.

The collection, selected specifically for Forty Five Ten by Bolke and Silver, comprises pieces from the Melrose Avenue store. The duo plans to change the theme every month through December. 

Already in-store are September selections that include silk blouses from high-end designers Celine, Hermes and YSL. October will feature a black-and-white evening collection, as a tribute to Two x Two for AIDS and Art. November will showcase coats and furs, and December will bring vintage Chanel pieces.

Prices are competitive with vintage couture, so you can expect the blouses to range from $150 to $1,075.

The last collaboration between these two couture-coveting men was at a Decades pop-up shop at Forty Five Ten in 2011. This new endeavor comes just in time for the busy social season. And here's hoping Bolke decides to maintain the partnership past December.
