Best Vintage Shop, Manhattan
Amarcord Vintage Fashion
84 East 7th Street
212-614-7133


The airy, sparkling Amarcord Vintage Fashion houses pristine and well-priced items handpicked by owners Patti Bordoni and Marco Liotta. The Italian expatriates collect much of their stock -- which includes non-designer prize finds, as well as pieces by Roberto Cavalli, Roslein, Versace, Cacharel, and Valentino -- in their home country, via secret sources and word-of-mouth. (In Italy, “there are no auctions, no thrift shops. Nobody knows what the word vintage means,” says Liotta. “They call it usato -- as in used.”) Open since December, Amarcord quickly found favor with the fashion troops: “Patti and Marco have impeccable taste,” says stylist Signe Yberg. “They don’t do trashy glam,” she adds. “They do sophisticated lady.”
