What is the difference Between Retro and Vintage?
The word "Retro" derives from the Latin retro prefix, which means, backwards or in times past. We can find this prefix in many common words in our language; retrograde, retrospective.
In France, retro is as an abbreviation for Retrospectif, a word widely used after World War II due to the constant reassessments of the Charles de Gaulle government and the role of France in the war. Later, in 1970, La Mode Rétro enhanced the behavior of French civilians during the Nazi occupation in cinema and literature. Soon, the term was applied to refer nostalgic to fashions of the same era. From there it was exported to English by the cultural press and fashion magazines.
It can also be said that a new artifact is vintage style because it follows the original design of that era, the retro grill can be of a similar design but not as the original design
