With Brick Lane and its neighboring side streets the undisputed Mecca of London vintage, it takes a special space to stand out from the crowd. Established in 2011, Blitz is London’s first and only vintage department store. Spread across three floors of a former Victorian warehouse, its crack team of vintage aficionados source and stock high-grade items from clothes, shoes and records, to bikes, furniture and books. What this translates to in store is a goldmine of desirable pieces, which span multiple eras. From 1980s Swatch watches to up-cycled leather and letterman jackets – if you’re not careful Blitz could swallow up your day. Staff playlists provide the store’s soundtrack and while shopping is the main event, there’s even a reading area and photo booth to enjoy. Shopping can be thirsty work, so luckily the Blitz vintage department store comes with its own coffee bar – complete with vintage espresso machine, naturally.Show lessRead more
