Blue17 vintage clothing offers one of the best selections of apparel in the UK and is a retail and wholesale business located since 1994 at 162 Holloway Road, London, N7 8DD.
Stockists of top quality American and European clothes and accessories for Men and Women, Blue17 is proud to offer an amazing array of products from the late 1880s to the 2000s.
Based a short walk from Highbury corner and adjacent to the Metropolitan university’s main complex on Holloway Road, the store is conveniently located, with excellent bus and tube public transport links nearby.
Blue17 has earned its excellent reputation within the local community and is also visited by interested shoppers from greater London and the home counties as well as visiting tourists from abroad
Having started the business on Holloway Road during the economic slump that followed the financial markets crash of 1989, with the shutting of many local business in the area, we have seen many changes in the area, including a relatively recent influx of young professional people who have chosen to live or work in Islington.
Over the twenty-six years at the current location on Holloway Road, Islington, Blue17 has built a unique and strong reputation with its clientele.
A favourite with actors, musicians, stylists, designers, film and theatre producers, the store is a light, bright and spacious shopping environment with great music ranging from jazz, electronica, hip-hop to rock always playing.
One of the great advantages of vintage clothing is that there’s always a particular style or era that’s current in fashion trends and Blue17 always finds the original vintage stock that reflects current tastes in fashion.
With many fashion designers taking inspiration from the styles and clothing of the past for their new season’s collections, the store is a source for clothing and accessories for many of these designers and we continue to be grateful for their endorsement.
Now that the UK economy has unlocked due to the successful and widely distributed vaccination programme, we have found that there has been a real enthusiasm of the public at large, television, film and music production companies to freely experience physical shopping once again.
More recently we developed the Blue17 website which has been growing in visibility and offers a unique range of products worldwide.
Initially starting with a blog and a few products, the website has grown and offers a unique resource of nearly one thousand vintage fashion articles which are free to read and over four thousand hand picked retro and vintage clothing items for Men and Women.
