There’s something about classic vintage items that make them irresistible. It’s easy to stroll into any luxury boutique in a mall and snap up items from the latest season. But it’s no walk in the park to source out treasured gems that were once loved—and thankfully preserved—by the well-dressed from generations back.
1. Vintage Qoo Tokyo
With physical stores in both Japan and Hong Kong on top of having an online presence, Vintage Qoo Tokyo is a vintage haven and a must-visit for those looking to expand their own collection.
Their items are known to be kept in excellent condition and if you happen to drop by their Omotesando store, the retail assistants won’t hesitate on giving advice catered to your needs. You can also just drop the friendly peeps an email or slide into their DMs on Instagram if there’s a particular item you’re interested in.
The Hong Kong store might be geographically nearer to us, but the variety of items there can’t be compared to what’s on display in their Omotesando outlet or even what’s available online. It’s a good thing the Omotesando location has moved from its initial spot that was only a small room with an unmarked door on the second floor of a nondescript building to a brightly-lit space that’s not too far away and more shopping-friendly.
