When done well, stepping into a vintage boutique should be like entering a bygone era. When done poorly, it can be more like stumbling into Aunt Maud’s mothball-ridden closet. Luckily, Madrid’s most exclusive vintage boutique, owned by Paco Delgado (stylist to Pedro Almodovar) and his partner Bernardo Corachán, is full of treasures. Housed in a turn-of-the-twentieth-century wine bar, it oozes the kind of glamour that would make Betty Davis’ eyes tear up and any drama queen squeal: Vintage Valentino! Vintage Chanel! Vintage Dior! Clothes, jewellery and shades, haute couture and ready-to-wear, unknown labels and international fashion houses; the pieces here are chosen for their quality, longevity, and style, dahling. Now fling that feather boa.
