The 6 Best Vintage Stores In Copenhagen Right Now

Vogue’s guide to the best vintage stores in Copenhagen is part of our directory of the very best vintage around the world, curated by editors from all over. Whether you’re travelling and searching for some superb stores to visit or are curious about your local vintage treasure chests, Vogue’s directory has you covered.

Copenhagen is a breeding ground for fresh fashion talent. Labels like Saks Potts, Cecilie Bahnsen and Astrid Andersen are redefining Danish style, while even more under-the-radar upstarts like Milsted are trailing closely behind. It’s a town of creative innovation and progressiveness, but it’s also a place with a great appreciation for history, especially of the sartorial kind. Tucked between the shiny Holly Golightly and Ganni boutiques in and around the main shopping area of Strøget are several vintage shops where that history is well preserved.

If a pair of Chanel jeans from the ’90s, an ’80s-era Comme des Garçons dress or a traditional Japanese silk kimono hold appeal, turn your attention from the in-with-the-It-girls labels to these five resale outposts. In Copenhagen, sometimes discovering the old can be just as exhilarating as buying into the new. Here to help is Vogue’s guide to the best vintage in Copenhagen, curated with the help of our Vogue Scandinavia editor Allyson Shiffman.

This tiny shop is centrally located just down the street from the tourist-filled Round Tower. Time’s Up is packed with vintage finds like Chanel jeans from the ’90s, Yves Saint Laurent printed dresses and jackets from the ’60s, and tonnes of costume jewellery from Gucci, Escada and more. They also have plenty of no-name-labelled vintage, whether a ruffled peasant blouse or a Deco-style cocktail dress. “It offers a covetable mix of designer pieces and unique vintage finds, all at a fair price point,” Shiffman says. “Don’t skip the men’s side for excellent jackets and knitwear.”
