King Size Vintage Monti
For those looking for a great shopping experience in Rome, you don’t need to head automatically to the famous streets of the Spanish Steps area to experience the best the city has to offer. While the boutiques that line these world-renowned avenues boast some impressive designer names, they are certainly not the only places in Rome to snap up a bargain with a Gucci or Armani label. An ever-increasing number of vintage and second-hand stores have taken the city by storm over the last few years, and one of the most successful of these new arrivals is King Size Vintage, located right in the heart of the youthful neighbourhood of Monti.
Your first impression upon entering this Aladdin’s cave of vintage bargains will be that of the sheer volume of clothing spilling out of every drawer, box and corner of this little shop. You’ll be spoilt for choice, and there are several surprises in store, including a room hidden away at the back of the store that is dedicated entirely to coats and outerwear. Whether you’re looking for a one-off showstopper (there are some stunning fur coats, and beautifully patterned 80s-style sequin tops), or a simple leather bag, chances are you’ll spend far more time searching through the rails than you intended to! Brightly patterned silk shirts, eye-catching ties and smart evening jackets make up the men’s section, as well as an extensive selection of Levis, sportswear and casual shoes.
The staff are friendly and helpful, so don’t be afraid to get chatting if you have any special requests – they are experts in navigating their way through the seemingly endless rails to seek out hidden gems just for you! You can keep up with the new stock by checking out and following their Facebook page.
