Vintage is an ever-evolving beast in Shanghai, but we still think you can’t beat a browse around Lolo Love Vintage, the queen of Shanghai’s retro scene. This quaint little space opposite The Shelter has crystal chandeliers, antique dolls and racks of gorgeous vintage threads (from around 400RMB). Comprising a treasure trove of mostly womenswear from Europe and the US, there are gorgeous items from decades gone by to peruse, plus shoes, jewellery, hats, ties and crockery. The sprawling space on Yongfu Lu is dripping with nostalgic glamour and kitsch trinkets, such as typewriters and toy dolls, while standout pieces adorn mannequins or decorate the walls. The plentiful rails of retro stock here are the fruits of stylist Lolo’s sourcing from Los Angeles, with a new focus on the ’20s-’40s period. Many have tried to unseat Lolo from her faded leather vintage throne – but so far none have succeeded.
