Don't believe the hype: Rellik
Rellik, a high-end vintage boutique in Kensington, has long been hailed as one of London’s greatest vintage shops. We honestly wonder why.
The shop specialises in designer labels, including a vast collection of vintage Vivienne Westwood as well as other brands such as Dior, YSL, Ossie Clarke to mention just a few. Most pieces are in mint condition, which is reflected in the price (prices range from £30 up to £500).
However, while this sort of range might have been special ten years ago, there are now plenty of high-end vintage shops across London offering a better selection at better prices. House of Liza, William Vintage or Merchant Archive are far superior when it comes to vintage designer wear and if you’re looking for that amazing, yet affordable one-off vintage find, you’re better off heading to the treasure troves that are Blackout II or Deborah Woolf.
Head to Rellik if you don’t have to stick to a budget or if you don’t mind a small selection of items, you might still find that vintage on-off. But don’t believe the hype.
