“Once you buy vintage jeans once, it's hard to go back to modern designs. Firstly, vintage denim, as a rule, is characterized by the density of the fabric - the best samples are almost "oak", they perfectly hold the silhouette and can last forever. Secondly, the fit is the same form of mom jeans, which has been relevant for several years, or "mom's jeans". There are many other nuances that professionals will help to delve into. For example, the vintage jeans experts Kings of Denim can tell you about the 501 Levi's, which began in America in the late 19th century. Over the next century, jeans have undergone many modifications, and many rare samples will be on the market,”explains Marina Chuikina, founder of Market Vintage Place Moscow.

“With each collection we try to show a new side of vintage jewelry. You can still find large clips from the 1980s here, but more and more attention is paid to truly unique things. For example, especially for the Vintage marketplace Moscow, we have reserved a 1920s sautoir, a thin metallic lace bracelet from the 1930s, zodiacal brooches from the 1950s and a rare reversible Mexican silver ring with the image of the moon,”says Anya Koltsova from More is more ".
“Our studio has a large collection of the best brands from the world of vintage jewelry - Elsa Schiaparelli, Nettie Rosenstein, Joseff of Hollywood, Mirriam Haskell and other collection brands,” says Natalya Grigorieva from Vintage Atelier.
It's no secret that fashion is cyclical. And if, for example, you are looking for a blouse in Victorian ruffles, a short dress interspersed with metallic threads in the spirit of the 1980s, or a combination like Kate Moss in the 1990s, then we advise you to pay attention not only to modern brands that cite past eras, but and originals.
“Everything that happens today on the catwalks is to one degree or another inspired by the fashion of the last century. In addition, the average price tag of items on the market does not exceed the cost of a similar position in a mass-market brand, so do not be surprised to find an Issey Miyake top for five thousand or a Dolce & Gabbana suit for seven, "says the Vintage marketplace Moscow team.
Thus, among the market participants, the Raisesomestore project is presented, which has a special passion for dresses of various decades - from the 1940s to the 1990s. In their corner it will be possible to find models for every day and for a special occasion. For dresses in bright colors, decorated with prints, embroidery, appliqués and lace, you should go to the B noir team.
Let's talk separately about the Mix & Match Vintage project, whose address any Moscow fan of vintage knows. Initially, the store's assortment consisted of dresses and kimonos, but over time, the founder of the project, Katya Borisova, began to bring suits, coats, trousers and other basic, but not boring things, found in various parts of Europe to Moscow.

On every day
If you think that vintage clothing is sure to look eccentric and can only be worn for a theme party, you are wrong. The Vintage marketplace focuses on items that can be worn every day, which will be easily combined with the main contents of your wardrobe. Good bases can be found at Strogo Vintage, Cream, Avoska. Vintage, Oldnew, and Total.
We advise you to pay attention to the classic trench coats (if you're lucky, you can stumble upon Burberry raincoats at the price of the mass market), leather and suede things that only get better over time - they are very worn. Lots of vintage shops stock fine Armani and Versace suits. Given the current fashion trend towards power dressing aesthetics, such a purchase will definitely come in handy now and in the future.
If you are just discovering vintage fashion, do not be afraid of a specific scent: this is a sure sign that the clothes have undergone special processing. However, some sellers, for example, Mix and Match Vintage, go even further - they take things to dry cleaning, wash, steam, restore and bring them to perfect condition on their own. Hence the higher price - you get a "new" thing that you do not have to bring to mind on your own.

The main vintage shop of St. Petersburg "Kostrov.store", founded by journalist Kostya Yamshchikov, is an infrequent guest in the capital. “The goal of the project is to change the perception of everyday clothes and show that quality items can be inexpensive, and the mass market kills individuality. Each item in Kostrov.store is a separate story, "Yamshchikov notes.
At the Vintage Marketplace "Kostrov.store" will bring a large selection of summer clothes: T-shirts, polos and shirts, light jackets and jeans in light colors Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Laurent, Levi's, Barbour, as well as rare models from A Bathing Ape, Louis Vuitton, Moschino and Kenzo.
