Ark of Cambridge: New vintage floor snoop around

4 Apr

The perfect soirée ensemble

My lovely pal who currently resides in Cambridge shares my craving for vintage clothing, she took a sniff around the new vintage clothing range at Ark.

For anyone who hasn’t visited or heard of the store before, there are two branches; one on Norfolk street and the other on St Mary’s passage. The latter being the shop with the vintage clothing line.

It’s a charming handmade and antique store full of one-off items, curious furnishings and now a new hand-picked vintage clothing range.

In a previous post about Ark I mentioned that the curtain was to be unveiled on their collection of vintage threads.

Lots of post-war beauties and a few 1980’s teenage wardrobe memories.

This lovely friend of mine had a big old snoop around the Ark store and was utterly charmed by the arrangement (at the top of the spiral staircase) however she was mildly dissapointed at the lack of clothes over all, she said “(S)eeing as they only have the vintage section open on Saturday’s I thought they would have more clothes overall.”

Ah well, another lesson learned; preparation is everything. From what I can see though, a lot of thought has gone in to the layout of the shop floor, so a pat on the back to the store’s creative director.

Ideal for a night cap

SHOES SHOES SHOES! Imelda-style!

Here are a couple of images of what’s on offer:
