Redefining vintage on the high street: Victory Vintage
Set up by sisters Zoë and Rebecca Plummer, vintage womens and menswear boutique Victory Vintage is a fantastic addition to Bayswater’s bland Whiteley’s Shopping Centre and a much needed alternative to the centre’s plethora of same-old fashion chains
The sisters’ mission to redefine vintage fashion on the high street has truly been a success with their shop stocking a wide range of carefully selected pieces from the Twenties to the Sixties.
The ladieswear offers a well-chosen selection of dresses, from Twenties ballgowns through to Forties and Sixties day dresses retailing between £50 – £100 and evening dresses between £80-£150. There is also a wide range of accessories including shoes, jewellery and bags.
On the men’s side, which is sourced by menswear expert Jake Hammond, Victory Vintage focuses on quality and interesting items made in the UK. There is quality contemporary suiting for around £95 along with real vintage suits from all eras which can run up to £250 for a 3 piece saville. In addition to the classic side of men’s attire, there are also rails of vintage leathers dating from the Twenties to the Eighties, formal attire (dinner suits, morning suits, white tie), fashion history oddments, military apparel and some period casual items.
