Get to Know PastDown, Lil Yachty's New Favorite London-Based Vintage Designer Store
Also counting Aitch, Sainté, Kasabian, Ashbeck, WillowKayne, Parallel, Loyle Carner, and Knucks within its clientele roster.
Shoreditch is London‘s vintage mecca, dominated by independent stores selling everything from ’90s Stüssy and Levi’s jeans to checkered Burberry essentials, desirable Prada picks, and the most coveted Dior drip. Until now, no one store carries it all, and this is where the latest player on the block comes in — it’s time to familiarize yourself with PastDown.
Comprising a growing permanent archive of over 100 pieces that are all available to rent (think styling, photoshoots, and music video opportunities), as well as a by-appointment-only retail space that consistently carries more than 300 unique items, PastDown is hotly becoming the one-stop-shop for rappers and streetwear heads to get their vintage game going. And for those unicorn pieces you can’t find, PastDown also offers a service to help you track them down.
And clearly, it’s speaking to the right people. A recent visit from Lil Yachty was the viral co-sign PastDown deserved, while the likes of Aitch enlisted PastDown for styling purposes, wearing one of its hand-painted Stone Island sheepskin jackets in his “Learning Curve” music video. It also counts the likes of Sainté, Kasabian, Ashbeck, WillowKayne, Parallel, Loyle Carner, Knucks, Finn Foxell, and OBLADAET as part of its clientele roster.
PastDown’s available-to-buy curation includes vintage monogram Gucci and Louis Vuitton, copious amounts of vintage Prada sunglasses and Prada Sport garments, dozens of old Nike jackets and tops, and rarities from Futura, C.P. Company, Arc’Teryx, Stone Island, Oakley, FENDI, and many more.
