Big beautiful Moscow is packed with stores, just not the kind I like. You can easily find known designer labels or big commercial chain stores, however, small, intimate boutiques or a good vintage store are things I really had to look for.
But I'm not known for giving up easily…so here is some of Moscow's hidden fashion gems that you can't afford to miss…

Vintage-X is a small store packed with exciting items. Everywhere you look there is an old treasure hiding… In this store I mostly liked the jewelry and the unique accessories, such as 1950's veiled hats and 1960's umbrellas…

Winzavod is a must place for all of you that love contemporary art and want to see its Russian point of view. Winzavod is a complex of 7 buildings that host art galleries and design stores. On weekends and other occasions different events are taking place in the complex, like the vintage market I visited at.

Here is some of the Winzavod spaces I visited at…

Cara & Co
A concept store that is often compared to stores like Collette in Paris or Dover Street Market in London. In the store you can find niche labels like Akira Isogawa and Claire Tough, as well as accessories by Tzuri Gueta and even Barbies from the 50’-60’.
