Looking for a bit of nostalgia in the nostalgia capital of the world? You need look no farther than a cozy little shop in the East Village called Amarcord Vintage Fashion.
Owners Patti Bordoni and Marco Liotta hail from the fashion center of the world, Italy, the main focus of their seasonal travels in search of the perfect vintage goods from the 1940s to the 1980s with which to stock their shop.
Specializing in handbags, watches, jewelry, shoes and other vintage women’s items and accessories, Amarcord opened its doors in 2000.
New York Magazine and The Village Voice showered kudos on Bordoni and Liotta, voting Amarcord Vintage Fashion the “best vintage store” almost immediately upon their opening eleven years ago, as well as last year on the occasion of their tenth anniversary.
Stop by Amarcord and pick up some Gucci, YSL and Alaia from days gone by and indulge in a little nostalgia yourself.
