Womenswear - 10/11 - The Vintage Guide To London
Crystal Palace is fast turning into one of London’s best vintage shopping destinations. Highlights include Vien, a small but well-stocked vintage shop selling fashion and accessories from the Twenties onwards up to last decade’s designer gear.
Not another East London-based vintage shop selling cheap Eighties Lycra for premium prices I hear you say, but don’t be fooled by the Hackney location, Paper Dress Vintage is a fabulous vintage boutique selling a great selection of clothing, shoes and accessories from 1900 to the Eighties.
With over 70 sellers offering anything from vintage clothes, jewellery, posters, home deco items, furniture and much more, Alfies Antique Market is one of London’s most exciting vintage shopping venues. Whatever your decade, you are guaranteed to find something here – Alfies has long been the secret of many a personal stylist and interior designer.
This giant warehouse space will unleash the hunter in you: practically everything in here is under £15, so real bargain territory.
Update: sadly, Vintage Secret has now closed its doors.
Tired of the overpriced nylon and moth ball nightmares, the staple of most vintage shops, Vintage Secret, the brainchild of vintage stylist Naomi Thompson (pictured), was created to showcase only the best one-off vintage finds, carefully selected for their uniqueness and fantastic condition.
