CHA.RLY Vintage & Flowers

The Turin mecca for retro lovers

1920s-style charleston fringes, headscarves, corsets for a thin pin-up waist, high-waisted jeans, trousers, and American college jackets. Cinema, TV series, videoclips and photographs of grandparents and parents helped to create a mythical imagine of past decades and the dream of taking a dip in the past to experience the fashion and culture of the time. CHA.RLY vintage & flowers is a time machine able to fulfill the desire to teleport directly to your preferred era.

The owners of the vintage shop, Arianna and Carlo, are refined and attentive hunters. Thanks to continuous research among trunks, stalls of markets and fairs around Italy, England and America they are able to bring clothes, accessories and unique objects back. Once found, they are refurbished giving them new life.

At first glance, from the large colored sign and the eccentric window that looks like a movie set, you can smell the typical cult of the past that permeates the vintage mecca like Portobello Road and Camden Town in London or the flea market New York.

A real Turinese Eden for lovers of retro. The selection that crowds and colors the store ranges from the ’20s to the’ 90s between stacks of the legendary Levi’s 501. Full of original t-shirt rock bands, rolls of old wallpapers, drawers full of ties and patterns  of bright colors and oversized sweatshirts that seem to come out of an episode of Beverly Hills 90210.

The shopping between furnishing accessories, diaries and backpacks with the protagonists of cartoons of the past, hats and sunglasses of every shape and rows of Dr. Martens is reconciled with a playlist ready to ferry you to the sounds of the past with songs that once could be heard blaring from turntables, jukeboxes and ghetto blasters.

CHA.RLY is also a tailor’s shop. In fact, Arianna makes and modifies clothes, proposing lines and wearability of the last 50 years. Recreating clothes with the sartorial techniques of those years. If you would like to organize a wedding in perfect retro style you can bring your guests back in time thanks to the wedding dresses and wedding planning service that will make your day of YES a memorable theme party or a vintage  ceremony echoing a scene from another time.

For all of you born in the wrong generation: if you can not get out of the loop of a Stranger Things characters look, are dying to see a Drive-In film with a full skirt or envy the outfits of your favorite 90s series, Cha .rly vintage & flowers is the time machine you’ve been looking for.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences turin has to offer.
