Overview

Now available in ePub format.

The Rough Guide to Vintage London is the ultimate guide to London's burgeoning vintage scene. Whether visitors are into fifties fashion or seventies furnishings, old-fashioned beauty parlors, Art Deco cafés, or retro restaurants, The Rough Guide to Vintage London will show them 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 readers to the best vintage shops, stores, markets, and more. Fully illustrated, the book covers more than two hundred spots where visitors will find like-minded, vintage-loving locals--from the East End hotspots of hyper-cool Hoxton and Shoreditch to the eccentric emporia of the West End, as well as the pick of London's markets and the classiest vintage outlets 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.

Meet the Author

Wayne Hemingway, MBE, and his wife Gerardine, started out selling second-hand clothes, shoes, and accessories in London's Camden Market in 1981. Together they built their Red or Dead fashion label into a global brand. In 1999, they set up HemingwayDesign, a multi-disciplinary design agency that specializes in affordable and social design.

Wayne is the founder of the award-winning Vintage Festival, a celebration of vintage and retro music, fashion, film, art, design, and food. The Hemingways are collectors of vintage everything. They co-own Britain's foremost collection of British mass-market memorabilia, housed in their museum, The Land of Lost Content, in Shropshire, England.
