RAGTAG Tokyo is your Future Vintage Source – GUEST POST「ラグタグ セレクトショップ」

littleaesthete.com is the brain child of Andreea, a fellow blogger from Bucharest, Romania. Her day job is a translator/interpreter and in her spare time she tries to indulge her creative urges: her blog, a novel she’s currently working on and, last Summer, a film about her home city.

Through littleaesthete, Andreea hopes to inspire her international readers to travel more and to discover the world. “The knowledge and experiences obtained during the travels are worth the effort” she says. You can learn more about her and her wonderful blog HERE .

A few weeks ago, I was invited to post in her blog (have a peek HERE) and today she’s Universotokyo’s guest.

Andreea and I share a deep love for Tokyo.  In one of her many visits, she stumbled across  RAGTAG, a second-hand designer thrift shop in town. Have a look at this cool store through Andreea’s eyes…

Ragtag Tokyo reflects the very happening Japanese style scene. On one hand, they are willing to spend on clothes. And on the other hand, no one will bat a lid at your batshit crazy outfits.

I discovered Ragtag in Harajuku, while watching out for everything new and interesting out there.I’ve been following them on Facebook and I have just come to realize what an unbelievable treasure trove they really are. They ship free of charge in Japan, imagine that!

They deal second-hand designer clothes. You can buy but also sell to them. They have a special service (have a look HERE) meant to repair and tailor the pieces to your measurements. They cover men’s, women’s and kid’s. And i noticed they even have a very cool section of furniture.

Use the various filters to browse old favourites and to discover new names. Also, as a reference: 10,000 yen equals 68.5 euro or 85 usd.

For each piece, you will get a thorough description including the faults as well as the reference price. Before you start browsing, you can set your chrome to automatically translate from Japanese to English. I can scroll and drool all day over their selection of Comme des Garcons and Margiela at (more) affordable prices.

I love this 2014 Comme des Garcons jacket but unfortunately, it’s an XS. This is probably the most often encountered problem: sizes are generally small. I also like this white cdg broderie anglaise skirt

Ann Demeulemeester has just recently given up designing for other creative endeavours, writing among others. Perhaps it’s time to check out her recent pieces. I like this coat and this dress

I like these 3 pairs of boots: Acne Studios these and these and Celine here

As far as the furniture goes, I’d go for this Kartell chest and for this Vitra table

Enough sighing in front of a screen! If you are serious about them they have many stores. Check HERE for their list around Japan. And they ship internationally, of course!

 

Thanks Littleaesthete for your cool post and hope you come back to Tokyo soon!
