The Née Vintage Store

The brainchild of freelance fashion stylist and influencer Camira Asrori, the Née Vintage Store is a treasure trove of vintage luxury goods tucked away in a three-storey Chinatown shophouse. True to its “vintage” moniker, all the bags and jewellery here are at least a decade old and mostly sourced from the Land of the Rising Sun. Expect to find timeless arm candies from brands like Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Gucci, and more at a lower retail price. Those hoping to stand out in the crowd can make a beeline for eclectic pieces like the Fendi Baguette in quirky prints or keep it chic and understated with Gucci Bamboo styles. Meanwhile, iconic silhouettes from Hermès like the Kelly and Constance can be found amid luxury homewares like tea sets and bowls from Frank Muller and Givenchy. Although they’ve got an online store too, there’s nothing quite like seeing these beautiful bags in person.
