For those who want a cup of coffee while rummaging for vintage fashion, Ekkamai favorite Unfashion, which has been selling stylish secondhand shoes, bags and accessories since 2004, has now opened a café right next door. As you’d expect, the two-story café keeps to a retro vibe with a rusted-bronze exterior brick walls, lightwood décor and naked light bulbs. There are also homemade pastries like apple cinnamon pie.
Run by a Thai-Japanese couple, Suchada”Jieb”Pavilai and Yuichiro Yoshino, (Un) Fashion specializes in rare leather shoes, bags and other accessories for both men and women. There’s a clear sense of style to the selection, with most items imported from Italy and dating from the 1970s, although they go back way further (their oldest ever pair was from 1930). Best thing: the pricing won’t give you a heart-attack, with items ranging from just B380-5,000. To get first pick, make sure you visit on Wednesdays, when new stock comes in.
