Hi Folks! Today’s feature is on a store with a quaint and quirky edge–Beyond Retro, in Stockholm! Apologies for the long hiatus from ME. *sheepish smile* Life has been terribly hectic recently–thank you, thank you for dropping me emails/PMs/instagram notes of concern. Umi and Kathy even thought I disappeared in Europe!
Beyond Retro offers a carefully curated selection of exquisite vintage-wear to shoppers who are eco-conscious and style-conscious. Their cool shops are distinguished by the vintage-style, atmosphere, tradition, and most importantly–the Beyond Retro PRIDE. Personally, I’d call them a tribe. Visit them if you want to be inspired!
There are two reasons why I chose to feature Beyond Retro–because:
- There is a severe lack of second-hand/vintage stores in Singapore– I don’t know any apart from YMCA; and
- According to this Fashion Forecasting Authority WGSN, the Autumn/Winter 15/16 collection relates to the theme of “Assemble”, which they elegantly described as:
“A creative mix of classic youth culture references, from timeless hand-me-down basics to glammed-up customisations, targets a new generation of young thinkers and activists.”
So…I hope this post value-adds you as much as it pleases me to no end to pen it!

I personally love their store *_* It has this rebellious edge to it. I attribute the success of the brand to the Beyond Retro team–they seem to be one big and warm family. When you enter, it feels like entering your European granny’s house!
I wish I could buy the suitcases.
And I love the window displays. No wonder customers love visiting the shop over and over again.
I personally love this hot-air-balloon top! Reminds me of the Disney movie “UP”.
Personal favourite–this pretty pastel spring dress! It has such a sweet tone to it.
That’s all folks for today!
