The Rough Guide to Vintage London is your ultimate guide to London's burgeoning vintage scene. Whether you're into fifties fashion or seventies furnishings, old-fashioned beauty parlors, Art Deco cafes, or retro restaurants, The Rough Guide to Vintage London will show you where to find the best bargains for getting dressed and going out in vintage style.
This unique travel guide for London casts a discerning eye over the entire city, guiding you to the best vintage shops, stores, markets, and more. Fully illustrated, the book covers more than two hundred spots where visitors can find like-minded, vintage-loving locals — from the East End hotspots of hyper-cool Hoston and Shoreditch to the eccentric emporia of the West End, as well as the pick of London's markets and the classiest vintage outlets to the north and south of the city center, all marked on full-color maps.
From mod to dandy, from flapper to "blitz chic" to punk and new Wave style, The Rough Guide to Vintage London will guide visitors of any retro persuasion to the hippest hangouts and best vintage shopping in London.
Edited and with a foreword by Wayne Hemingway, design director of Vintage by Hemingway and founder of London's award-winning Vintage Festival.
