Vintage and second-hand at HUMANA

Shopping in Europe isn’t always cheap, that’s why H&M is always crowded!  To find something different and continue my hunt for vintage and second-hand clothing, I went to HUMANA in both Milan and Berlin.  The prices are reasonable and if you dig deep enough, you’ll find steals like an ESCADA jacket for 39 euros.  The HUMANA in Berlin is amazing and I have some pictures to show for it!

First off, the place is crazy ass huge.  There are five levels.  The clothing are neatly arranged, coloured coded and pattern coded even.  This is no Salvation Army but to be fair, there are organised Salvation Army stores, just not in Singapore.  On the fifth level, vintage is organised by decades and from the 1920s onwards.  Aside from clothing, shoes, bags and accessories, there are even a few racks of costumes.  The selection here is beyond comprehensive.

The only problem is most clothing come in average European sizes and it’s near impossible to find something in Asian petite size.  Nonetheless, it was an inspiring visit!
