Rosie has a knack for finding amazing vintage clothes - we love seeing what sartorial gems she’s going to wear next!
Read on as Rosie reveals her top spots for shopping vintage in London…
PELICANS & PARROTS Full to the brim with everything from vintage clothes to feather headdresses and leather armchairs to contemporary china, there’s a reason why Pelicans & Parrots has been described by Vogue Italia as the “coolest place in London”.
“I absolutely love this shop, there is such a quality to everything they sell - I don’t seem to be able to walk out without buying something! My favourite find is a newsprint silk shirt that I think is something quite special but it doesn’t have a label. I also found an incredible black and white early ‘80’s Valentino dress that takes cufflinks. I’ve been looking for the right cufflink dress all my life!”

DEUXIEME One of Fulham’s best kept secrets, Deuxieme is owned by none other than Rosie’s cousin Camilla, who is not only a lover of vintage but an actress too, you may even have spotted her on TV! With vintage and pre-owned designer clothes and accessories spread over two floors, this treasure trove is updated with newness daily, so you’re guaranteed to find something you’ll love - just like Rosie did!
“On my visit I discovered this fantastic Erdem dress, it fits like a glove and goes perfectly with my Scenery Statement Necklace - what a find! Camilla has such a good eye and seems to get all the best designer pieces. There is a freshness and glamour to everything in the shop with labels such as Mary Katrantzou right through to Chanel - but all at such an accessible price. I follow them on Facebook so I don’t miss out on the latest pieces!”

PICTURES & LIGHT + POST At first glance, Pictures & Light + Post just looks like a furniture shop, but head to the back and you’ll discover a rail of the most amazing vintage clothes. The selection is small, but as they say, it’s all about quality over quantity...
“I’ve been shopping here for ten years now - it’s always great to see Eka and Dusty! They have incredible style and always have an amazing selection of finds, mainly sourced from Italy… the most exciting being this waistcoat which is early ‘90’s Missoni. Apparently it was part of a teenage range they made for boys which never took off, so this is one of a kind”
