If you keep a candle burning for modern twists on 1950s American retro fashions then Hollywood Flame should set you on fire. This Britain-based business was started in 2006 with a commitment to providing an all-retro, rockabilly and pin up selection of new, not actual, vintage clothing that pays a contemporary homage to that atomic and iconic time.
The brands sold originally in Hollywood Flame all came from America, hence the Hollywood reference in their name. But soon the U.S. lines from Stop Starring!, Lucky 13, Mode Merr and Heartbreaker Fashion had company from retro designers all over the world, like Australia’s Route 66 and England’s own Miss Fortune.
Guys and dolls alike partial to the vintage look have gobs of duds to select as they sift through the pages on their site, but chicks do have more to choose from, with more than 50 different dresses alone and pages of separates and accessories like peasant and pencil skirts, blouses, shoes, capris, purses, jackets picture frames and printed Tee’s. Yet gents and greasers both won’t be disappointed by their options because Hollywood Flame’s array of bowler shirts, Tee’s and jackets are well made and varied from brands like Cubavera, Tarantula and Nat Nast.
Like bargains? Hollywood Flame understands the global inclination toward financial conservation and keeps are well-maintained sale section filled up to the brim with thrifty threads for you to browse through. The clothes they offer there are all the same brands and quality as elsewhere on the site, but are reduced significantly in price and only limited by the sizes and stock available.
Although right now Hollywood Flame is currently only available for business online, this modern vintage boutique has big plans to open their own non-virtual store in East London quite soon. Until then, they continued shipping internationally with fees based on location, and although they list their prices only in £ sterling they accept payments through direct bank transfers, PayPal and RBS World Pay. Those concerned about returns from a shop so far away will be happy to know that this vintage shop rarely says no to item sent back within 7 days.
