The abundance of second-hand shops popping up nowadays can make you question the quality of their pre-loved items. Thankfully, this isn't the case when it comes to Amarcord. With branches in Williamsburg and Soho, Amarcord stocks up on clean and well-curated pieces, with 60% of them coming from France, Italy and England. Rummaging thru the racks, you'll unearth treasures such as white eyelet blouses by Comme des Garcons, or a bright yellow Gucci jacket. All the best designers are represented here at an affordable price, including Chloe circa Karl Lagerfeld’s design period, Pucci, and Chanel. For men, classic Americana and Native American pieces are key like an olive canvas vest in a woven print or a utilitarian backpack with distressed leather straps. Most items deserve two looks. One to see if you like and the second to catch all the detail. Notable looks include a YSL multicolor flamenco style wrap dress. Stare at it long enough and you realize the print is actually two ballerinas dancing. Now that's good vintage.
