New Black Selection by Alex

Every Friday, New Black store manager Alex Urombi, picks his favourite things right now. Anything from clothes and accessories to hotels, restaurants and new music.

Favourite vintage stores in Stockholm:

1. Beyond Retro: Founded more than a decade ago, Beyond Retro has a lot of stores in Sweden and the UK as well as an online shop. In Stockholm they have two stores, one at Drottninggatan and the other one in Zinkensdamm. You’ll find vintage pieces from a lot of well known brands but they also sell deconstructed and reconstructed clothes which makes them stand out from the regular vintage shops.
2. Humana Second Hand: With their two stores, one in Skanstull and one at Mariatorget, Humana provides a great selection of second hand clothing that’s updated a couple of times every week. Also, they’re fur free!
3. Brandstationen: Located at Hornsgatan 64, Brandstationen sells a lot of beautiful furniture, lamps and jewellery. They also have another shop at Hornsgatan 65 called Herr Judit where they focus more on clothing, high end bags and classic menswear.
4. Siv & Åke: Founded by two siblings as a tribute to their grandparents Siv and Åke. Located at Mariatorget this small second hand shop has a big selection of quality vintage clothing.
