When Lady Gaga is making secret midnight trips to check out a vintage shop you know it’s worth a visit. Rellik has long been the destination for A-listers from Kate Moss to Kylie Minogue, seeking out beautiful and original pieces with a history. The shop is run by three former Portobello market stallholders – Fiona Stuart, Claire Stansfield and Steven Philip – and their different tastes mean there’s a good mix of pieces by the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Chloé, Ossie Clark, and Yohji Yamamoto.
While most items on sale here are from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s, you’ll also find more contemporary pieces, as the focus is as much on a garment’s quality as its provenance. Glam accessories, such as enormous Hermès sunglasses, have their own dedicated wall. Despite the high-end boutique design, neither the shop nor its price tags are intimidating. Got something specific in mind? Ask Fiona, Claire and Steven who’ll be more than happy to track it down in their archive.
