The sort of shop you wished you could keep a jealously guarded secret – but Omaya vintage is well known. Opened by two brothers in 2010, it attracts its share of obsessive fahionistas: from Parisians collecting armfuls of leather boots to punks come to pick up a pair of DMs at €40. If some pieces are more contemporary, the majority of the stock comes from the ’70s and ’80s; military and denim jackets, woollen jumpers, t-shirts and more are all thoroughly organised and ranged on hangers, and it’s hard to say no when lumberjack shirts in perfect condition cost only €10 and ’80s high-heeled shoes only €5. Behind the counter, Julien and Thomas offer a royal welcome. Thoughtful and smiling, together they’re the perfect antidote to traditionally hostile Parisian shop staff.
