Whether you’re costuming a new style or adding one-off pieces to your wardrobe, head for Beyond Retro—a 50,000 square foot warehouse-world of American vintage clothing and accessories. Each visit provides a plethora of new finds from a near endless selection of clothing for men and women alike. Should you need guidance, just ask the tuned in, helpful staff who know the stock through seams and stitches inside out.
Garments from the 1940s to the 1980s are showcased with an emphasis on wearable quality vintage rather than secondhand kitsch; although a fair amount of wonderful wearable art objects await as well. Another strength is the store’s extensive collection of old skool accessories, from trainers and cowboy boots to bags, ties and a new addition to the stock, wigs.
Beyond Retro is one of the largest and most modestly priced vintage shops in London. Customers are sure to enjoy themselves amassing looks from the racks and bopping back and forth between changing rooms as the lively retro soundtrack urges them on. Be sure to check out this part disco, part retro bargain basement, part archive of fashions past; whatever else is Beyond Retro, we encourage you to find out as you enjoy the thrill of the vintage clothing chase.
