CQ Live London: Wow Retro, Drury Lane
Covent Garden is full of great vintage destinations, but Wow Retro’s Drury Lane shop is one of our favourites, not just because it’s two minutes away from the office – meaning we walk past it every day – but also because of how spacious it is compared to some of the others.
The store stocks everything from fun fur coats to psychedelic Nina Ricci mini dresses (£60) and also has more maxi dresses than the ASOS.com sale section.
With huge sections for guys and girls, all well-organised so you can easily find what you want (sequinned butterfly poncho? Vintage cowboy boots? Retro leather jacket?) the store has a big range of vintage finds from the 40s to the 80s, all at surprisingly reasonable prices for this part of London.
On our trip we were taken by a green prom dress for £55, some beautiful vintage swimsuits (they really don’t make them like this any more) and an original Ossie Clark floral dress, yours for £450.
