Siam Vintage

Shopping for old clothes, new bags and quirky sunglasses

Note: Siam Vintage is now mostly empty due to lack of popularity, only a couple of shops remain open

Go up the stairs at Siam Vintage to find an eclectic mix of boutiques, ranging from vintage accessories and clothes to talented young designers trying to make their mark on the fashion scene. Despite being open since April 2012, its location on the second floor between sois nine and ten of Siam Square isn’t obvious, so no crowds spoil your browsing experience. This is the place to come if you want to buy something unique from some of Bangkok’s best boutiques; all under one roof.

Siam Vintage is not the easiest place to find, if you are coming from BTS Siam, head down to the other end of soi nine or ten; the arcade can be found opposite the British Council. They’ve really made an effort with their outdoor decoration with a Marie-Antoinette inspired cartoon and a Cinderella clock, some funky signage and an attractive flight of turquoise steps, which will take you into the black-and-gold nest-like conservatory that hangs over the pavement and the arcade itself reminds me of the ones found near London’s Bond Street, with wooden shop fronts and ferns in replica Louis XIV pots. The extremely stylish dining options are situated near the entrance to Siam vintage and are definitely worth checking out. KinCucino is all about industrial chic, a dessert and appetiser café and serves some great cocktails and Feat is an American diner with a life-sized Storm trooper at the bar.

 

Around 30 shops can be found at Siam Vintage, ranging from retro to designer. Again and Again is a well-known second-hand store that also has an outlet in Thong Lor, with some fabulous pieces. On our visit we spotted some beautifully beaded tops, great skirts from the 80s and a sparkly collection of costume jewellery. Outcast may look like your run-of-the-mill trainer shop, but take a closer look and you’ll see some limited edition Converse or Nikes, with a lot of their collection being imported from Japan. The focus is vintage sunglasses at Onion, who started as an online store but branched out when Siam Vintage opened. Attractively displayed, you can’t help but want to try on pretty much every pair in the shop. They also stock some pretty dapper suede moccasins.

ZM Bangkok adapts Native Thai style for modern guys and girls with dream-catcher accessories and detailed tops, with their printed scarves fast becoming popular. Pawn Shop won’t give you cash in exchange for gold, but they do have some very sought-after vintage bags, I spied a Chanel must-have whilst browsing and they also stock a variety of new and hardly used items, with brands such as Tod’s, YSL, Jimmy Choo and Miu Miu. Hummingbird Kornkanok is the store where fashion meets art, the rail stuffed with floaty florals and summer dresses.

The selection of shops at Siam Vintage is good, but the balance tips slightly more towards accessories than clothing, not a big deal given that the rest of Siam Square is filled with shops.
