Modern Retro opens vintage shop in Sofo in Södermalm, Stockholm

By on April 8, 2019

From March 2019 you find Modern Retro’s vintage shop in Sofo at Södermalm in Stockholm. The store has carefully selected vintage clothing, accessories, shoes and gadgets. It is located in picturesque Söderkvarter on Gotlandsgatan 76A / corner Katarina Bangata.

– In 2018 we found this beautiful room and got the chance to move from Mariatorget to Sofo. The store has been designed so that it feels like you let go of the everyday life and stepping into a store from the 1920s to the 40s. We have put clinkers of the 1920s style and a wallpaper fund from the same decade. The shop interior is from the 1930s to the 1950s, says the store’s owner Thomas “Totte” Gabrielsson.

Modern Retro offers clothes, shoes, accessories, hats, sunglasses, gadgets, lamps and more from 1920-90s. The vision is to have an assortment for the fashion-interested man and the woman who wants to act sustainably, wear high-quality clothes and have their own style. The clothes should work for both everyday and party.

Each garment is unique and hand-picked by Thomas. The clothes are mostly from Scandinavia or Europe. Many of the clothes and shoes are so called deadstock – unused vintage clothing. Even old Branding labels are left!

– The store’s location between Nytorget and Blecktornsparken and its beautiful view of Katarina bangata’s avenue and Sofia church reinforce the experience, says the shop’s owner Totte.

Totte burns for vintage and old gadgets. He has run vintage shops in two rounds: in the 1980s when his then shop was on the Renstierna street and from 2003 when he opened Modern Retro at Mariatorget. Now Modern Retro has found a home in Sofo.

The shop is located on Gotlandsgatan 76A in Sofo, Södermalm in Stockholm.
