Immerse yourself in a world of rock and roll retro style from top to bottom. Sweet Cherry Clothing began as a small design company with a dream: to capture the independent and inspiring spirit of the 1950’s world and bring it to today’s women. With the growing popularity of rockabilly and pin up looks, it didn’t take long for Sweet Cherry Clothing to become its own rocking trend in fashion.

That is when the designers decided to expand their market to include rockabilly men’s clothing as well. Based in Barcelona, Spain, this vintage brand now sells their products worldwide and has been spotted at many rock and roll concerts and venues around the globe.

Specializing in detailed vintage reproductions, Sweet Cherry Clothing aims to capture the rockabilly look by making each piece unique and top-quality. The men’s line includes hot rod work shirts with rock and roll emblems, rockabilly jeans, and jackets. With hand embroidered flames, casino, and even Elvis motifs, the Black Cherry line for men is one of a kind vintage style that is difficult to duplicate anywhere else.

For the pin up girls and rockabilly divas, there is a wide selection of bold blouses, pin up dresses, and cute jackets. You’ll find everything from sexy leopard print and pencil skirts to sweet poodle skirts and (of course!) red cherry patterns.

What sets Sweet Cherry Clothing apart from other brands is their wide variety and selection of vintage accessories. For lovely victory roll hair, choose from polka dot bows to cameo barrettes and plaid bandanna ribbons. Their fun retro jewelry options include dice earrings, sparkling pendants and beaded pearl necklaces.

For the rockabilly gal, check out some skull and crossbones pieces too! Finally, there is a great selection of cute vintage clutches and handbags to complete your gorgeous pin up look. At Sweet Cherry Clothing, they’ve thought of every last detail to make the 1950’s come to life.

These three talented ladies attended the same design school and came up with their idea to sell retro spirited garments in 2011. The next year, they established their online store, and in 2013, they graced the city of Barcelona with their flagship store. Now they offer a range of Rockabilly and retro fashion for not only pinups but to men, kids and even babies, too!

The label’s garments are produced in an assortment of colors and recognizable vintage impressions, like polka dots, tropical prints and leopard prints. Sirens adore the hourglass silhouettes Cindy Bangs clothes create, since they’re complete with cinched waistlines and accented necklines. The skirts and dresses are either chic and form fitting or full and flirty.

Combine their figure flattering bottoms with one of the store’s gorgeous tops and one of their structured jackets or classic cardigans. The Cindy Bangs footwear collection is one of the most exciting parts of the store, because many of the shoes are unique.

While most of the designs are original and inspired by retro fashion, Cindy Bangs also offers men and women authentic vintage pieces and and other well-known industry brands. The designers will also work with you to produce a custom-made garment or accessory if you have a special occasion. It’s nice to have a shop attend to almost all your vintage loving needs!

The Cindy Bangs label has grown quite a bit in just a few short years. These designers use their excitement for pinup style and fashion from the 1950s as the focus for their collection.

They design and select their clothing and accessories with such passion, and it’s highly apparent they take this nostalgic aesthetic seriously and with love. We can’t wait to see how much more they grow and what they have in store for the future!
