London’s first vintage department store opens this Friday and Time Out has had a sneak peek of the impressive site. Just off Brick Lane, Blitz is the brainchild of various established vintage dealers and sells clothing for men and women from every decade and designer (Vivienne Westwood, Biba, Ossie Clark, Alexander McQueen etc). The 5-room warehouse space covers 9,000 sq feet and boasts more stock than any other vintage store in London to date. Books, records, luggage, sunglasses and trinkets complete the mix; in addition, furniture and homewares are selected by Broadway Market’s design afficionados, The Dog and Wardrobe. An on-site café opens soon, with coffee served from a converted vintage Fiat car. Get exclusive first-hand news about this second-hand mecca below.
