Vintage is having a revival right now, both on the runways and via celebrities, such Bella Hadid and Rihanna, who have been leading the charge. Luckily, an array of online vintage shops, beloved by fashion insiders, means that sourcing archive designer pieces is easier than ever – and means you, too, can be the proud owner of ’90s Jean Paul Gaultier or Tom Ford-era Gucci.
Below, we pick nine of the best online vintage stores to shop now.
Toronto-based Shrimpton Couture is known for its incredible archive, which ranges from Marc Bohan-era Dior (the inspiration behind the French fashion house’s spring/summer 2022 collection) to ’90s Versace. With Rihanna, Tracee Ellis Ross and Ruth Negga among its fans, you’d better be quick off the mark if you want to snap up a vintage gem.
What Comes Around Goes Around
After more than 25 years in the business, What Comes Around Goes Around is one of the most famous vintage stores in the world, and with good reason. From iconic It-bags to rarer collectible pieces, it’s a must visit for any vintage lovers out there.
Amore Vintage Tokyo
Tokyo’s Amore Vintage has become a popular destination for archive hunters, thanks to its vast collection of brightly-coloured ’90s Chanel bags. Other pieces to watch out for include special-edition Dior saddle bags, as well as vintage Versace sports jackets.
If you’re on board with the trend for ’90s nostalgia right now, then James Veloria offers a treasure trove of vintage finds, ranging from Jean Paul Gaultier to Versace. With Dua Lipa’s stylist Lorenzo Posocco recently paying a visit, expect to see James Veloria-sourced pieces on the singer soon.
For the minimalists among us, Retold Vintage is a go-to, with vintage Calvin Klein, Max Mara and Chloé among its offering. With regular drops, carefully-curated by founder Clare Lewis, quickly selling out, it’s worth subscribing to the Retold newsletter in order to get a preview of the pieces.
If you’ve been inspired by Adele’s corsetry on British Vogue’s November cover, then Pechuga Vintage is the place to visit for a vintage Vivienne Westwood corset. Known as the “king of corsets”, founder Johnny Valencia’s A-list clientele includes the likes of Miley Cyrus and Megan Thee Stallion.
One of Bella Hadid’s favorite Depop stores, Susamusa (which also has upcycled pieces among its offering) is worth a visit – particularly if you’re looking for Y2K denim. Hadid was recently spotted in a long patchwork denim skirt sourced by Susamusa, reviving the divisive Noughties trend.
Nina Gabbana Vintage
The source of Rihanna’s vintage Dior finds, Paris-based Nina Gabbana Vintage is full of hidden gems – whether it’s vintage Gucci (as recently worn by Ariana Grande) or ’90s Prada corsets (we’re obsessed). On the jewelry front, Gigi Hadid was also recently seen wearing a Dior pearl choker found via Nina Gabbana.
Menage Modern Vintage
If you’re in need of a mood-boosting knit this winter, then look no further than Menage Modern Vintage. In fact, the London-based store supplied many of the key looks worn by Emma Corrin as Princess Diana in season four of The Crown, from a Liberty print dress to a Valentino skirt suit.
