At Beyond Retro, we're vintage-obsessed. And seriously secondhand-savvy. With an eye for contemporary style, we hand-pick products from around the world to bring you the very best in curated, trend-led vintage fashion.
We’re inspired by fashion runways, global street style, and of course, our customers, helping us to determine what’s next in fashion, to pick from yesterday’s closets. Fanatical about vintage yet extremely precise with what we carry, product is sourced up to six months in advance, aided by a sophisticated information management system that gives constant internal trend updates.
Forget the rules if it makes you happy, wear it!
Working in what the industry calls “rag-houses” around the world, a network of trained treasure hunters scale literal mountains of secondhand clothes to find the vintage diamonds that match our trends. Our pickers look at colour, size, fit, quality, and label to meet our buyers’ needs and it is no easy task with only 1 in a 1000 making the cut!
Once we have handpicked thousands of items and saved them hitting landfill or the shredder, we ship these items to our warehouses in London and Sweden.
We’re not just vintage nerds; we’re data nerds too. Specially developed software tracks the crucial fashion stats of each unique item that arrives at our East London & Swedish HQ: trend, decade, size, style, and source, among others.We process multiple shipping containers per week, where our product experts examine each box for quality control before hanging items for pricing. All this TLC gets us closer to retail success, and you closer to awesome vintage pieces that are truly relevant today!
With thousands of new pieces added to our shop floors and online every week, you can be sure that there’s fresh vintage drops every time you shop.
