However, as nice as it is to find these rarities after a day of slogging it around markets on Brick Lane, sometimes you just don't have the energy for eagle-eyed thrifting. So it comes as a great relief that shops like ROKIT are there to offer an easier alternative, limiting the thrill of the hunt to a more manageable floor space.
ROKIT, originators of vintage fashion boutiques, is proud to be the longest standing vintage fashion archive in London, with stores located in Camden, Brick Lane and Covent Garden. ROKIT receives daily deliveries of new stock, providing a constant turnover of authentic vintage pieces. Whether you’re a collector seeking a rare designer piece, or an opportunist on the search for that special item, ROKIT’s got what you need. Better still, ROKIT employs an in-house design team who run the ‘Rokit Recycled’ label. This ensures pre-worn never means worn-out.
When selecting a piece from Rokit’s recycled range you are guaranteed the design is handmade in London, sweatshop free, thus supporting the ethical fashion movement - which gets a big thumbs up from us! ROKIT is also available online, and students should sign up to the shop’s newsletter, as student-friendly offers are regularly available.
So, next time you're taking on the challenge of Brick Lane, remember that ROKIT is there with the very best in rare, high-end vintage clothing.
