products

street-vintage. t-shirts, jeans, disco tops but also make-up and wigs and cat-suits. get ready to disco... my scores were a beautiful green suede a-line skirt for 20.000 lire and the sweetest 50s fur-lined [oops..guilt-trip i think it was mink] coat for only 30.000 lire.

clientele

models, stylists, fashion + photography students.

service

cool employees, they just listen to their music and read their books and magazines, while you can do your thing...transparent plastic bags with black & yellow print: very punk.

interior

i suspect it's been like this the past ten years and that it's not going to change for the next...there's the usual share of velvet, weird wallpaper and peeling paint.

the shop has two outlets, also one near the duomo. but this is the one to go to if you want to meet the fashion crowd. milan's biggest studio complex, studio 13, is just across the traintracks. anyway, the owner is a very sweet american, great to have a lazy afternoon chat with. meanwhile he doesn't trick you into buying anything...come around often if you'd like to find that unique piece of vintage at a bargain price.
