Top five new boutiques
By Gavin Jewkes, 24 January 2015
If you’re not familiar with ASOS Marketplace, it’s essentially an Aladdin’s cave of vintage, one-of-a-kind finds with a bounty of independent labels to keep even the most discerning shopper happy. But with all that choice, it can be difficult to navigate your way to the best boutiques and sellers. So we've enlisted eagle-eyed Marketplace editor Lauren Rodgers to help us pick five fresh new additions to the seller scene who are well worth checking out in 2015.
Managed by students who sell retro sportswear and 90s brands to fund their studies, Gully Garms was launched with stock cherry-picked from some achingly cool charity shops.
The go-to guys for quality pieces from retro American brands, Real Friends is the perfect place to scoop something worthy of the 90s revival that’s gripping menswear right now.
Two mates from Leigh-on-Sea manage this boutique. Tom and Scott worked in fashion retail before quitting their jobs to dedicate themselves to The Wonders Of Vintage full time, due to high demand.
This boutique is owned and managed by two brothers called Stuart and Greg Pearce. Stuart graduated from Newcastle’s School of Design and launched the label with his bro last summer. Graphic logos on sweet tees and sweats are their thing.
Brand new to Marketplace, Boom Done Shop launched following a cash injection from the Prince’s Trust. Head here for artsy logo tees.
