Retro Chic Shopping in Amsterdam

Retro chic shopping in Amsterdam

If you're shopping in Amsterdam you're sure to make your way through the luxury P.C. Hooftstraat and the brownstone lined alleys of the Negen Straatjes (nine streets). But it's off the beaten path that you'll find the diamond in the rough of Amsterdam's shopping scene.

In the city center and situated among the old Dutch East India Company office buildings is secondhand clothing and accessory paradise, 1953 Retro & Chic. Their vintage items are authentic and in many cases one of a kind and always a rare find. The tiny shop is packed floor to ceiling with gowns, cocktail dresses, handbags, heels and even 60s Chanel flair.

The small team of two Amsterdam vintage hunters hand pick every item on offer at 1953 Retro & Chic. And judging from their own fashion sense, some of the shop items could go straight off the shelves and into their finely tuned closets.

Personal favourites include the selection of Italian leather pumps and boots, available in a surprising number of larger sizes. The jewelry selection is to die for, with broaches and pins that add style and sophistication to every wardrobe. And for the more adventurous dresser, the genuine feather hairpieces are an authentic and stylish addition to your collection.

With the outdoor market at the Noorderkerk and the flea market stalls at Waterlooplein, there is no shortage of secondhand shopping in Amsterdam. But at 1953 Retro & Chic, you don't have to digging through piles of worn wears. What they offer is the very best vintage and - most impressively - at the very best prices.
