At the end of May, “Blink” was very cordially invited to the opening of the new Vintroville store on Hackney Road.
Vintroville is all about carefully selected vintage clothes chosen by the two owners, Meryl Fernandes and Laura McAlpine, combined with a few one-off pieces by a handful young designers who upcycle and rework vintage. We particularly liked the lovely embroidered vintage knitwear from LauraLaura. The selection includes glamorous dresses, classic blouses, cool jackets, accessories as well as some menswear, and all of the vintage is cleaned and pressed to sweet smelling perfection before being sold. Something many musty and dusty vintage boutiques should take note of! The stores handwriting, across both the vintage and reworked items, is delicate and quite feminine (in a cool Shoreditch way…), and feels really well edited.
This delightful little treasure trove of a shop is located at 205 Hackney Road, next to Columbia Road and a two minute walk away from Shoreditch High Street.
Thanks for the invite ladies, and we’ll be back to do some more shopping very soon! Thanks also to Asta for pulling this post together.
