A Vintage fan demands history and soul in each of their choices but a Vintage spirit is not necessarily a return to the past; it is a look at the present and certainly a revival for the future.

FASHION
In Lisbon, the headquarters of Vintage Fashion is, without any doubt, A Outra Face da Lua, literally meaning The Other Side of the Moon.

The store opened 15 years ago in the Baixa area and Carla Belchior, one of the founders is a guru and high reference for all things Vintage.
Their offer includes unique or second-hand pieces that come from around the world from a selection of clothes, shoes, jewelry, and accessories for men and women, with styles from the 60s and up to the 90s decades.

After so many years collecting a legion of loyal customers, this family business decided to create an online store where you will find sunglasses, tote bags, shirts, jackets, dresses, jeans, tracksuits from the 90s and even a private collection with exclusive scarves from brands like Christian Dior, Emilio Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Burberry, Hèrmes and Chanel.
