Retro brands with a rich cultural history.
Retro Star was created in 2007 by John Fried, ex-owner of cult shop Fans, which was located in Soho, London.
In the beginning, Retro Star’s stock was stored in John's attic, packed at the kitchen table and lugged up to the local sub-post office in a sack, annoying any locals unfortunate enough to be in the queue behind him.
Soon, the table was outgrown and the post office queue were getting more impatient so premises were found nearby and a postal collection set up.
Fast forward two years, stock and staff numbers were increasing, so once again Retro Star was on the move.
We are presently located just off the North Circular Road, which is great for both deliveries and Royal Mail and courier services.
Our vision from the birth of Retro Star has always been to showcase brands with history, influenced by British youth culture and music, from the 1950's Teddy boys in their creeper shoes to Mods, Punks, Casuals and Soul Boys.
