Siam Vintage

*After hearing Siam Vintage wasn't doing so well I went to check it out on June 12, 2013 and it has been shut down. How sad!*

Newest addition to the Bangkok's vintage clothing scene is elevated soi Siam Vintage, located at Siam Square soi 9-10 (behind Chulalongkorn University bookshop). The first glimpse of this new fashion nest connotes its lofty intentions and eclectic style. Either that or Siam Square rent is getting so ridic they were forced to build their own second story.

The shops perched atop Siam Vintage include several new branches of old favorites like Again & Again and His & Her Vintage (from Chatuchak). There's also some new eateries - restaurant Kincuchina and cafe Beef and Lemon. When we strolled through in the late afternoon, both were populated with a smattering of fashionable people. Past the turqoise steps and black walled-entrance, the decor of the soi is as thoughtful and interesting as each individual shop.

The grand opening is on April 18 2012, so a few of the shops were in the process of setting up and we hope to find more of a selection next time. But we forgive you. There was a lot to see already, especially if you're looking for accessories, jewelry and sunglasses. Clothing not so much - to find treasures in Again & Again we'll still head to Thonlgor for a better selection. As with most 'vintage' spots in Bangkok, many shops carry first and second hand products.

Siam Vintage opens around noon and closes around 8pm daily.
