"Byronesque and the personal shopping team are phenomenal at sourcing rare, hard to find pieces. Somehow they manage to find unique pieces tailored to my specific taste leaving me in anticipation of what they'll find next." - S. Aramalla (Byronesque Personal Shopper client).
“What Byronesque is trying to do is very important.” – Michèle Lamy (Creative Director, Rick Owens).
Equal parts fashion and subculture editorial, and a carefully edited shopping experience, Byronesque celebrates the stories and clothes that have changed the course of fashion history.
The online boutique is a collection of authentic designer vintage fashion, hand-picked from the best retailers and private collectors from around the world. What separates Byronesque’s collections from other vintage brands is its very precise edit, challenging the misperception that “just because it’s old means it’s good.”
The late-’70s, ‘80s and ‘90s were a period of great creative freedom and subculture, From Westwood and McLaren - who created punk, and then the new romantic movement that inspired the British fashion rebels, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen – to Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garçons, the Japanese designers who upset the French fashion aristocracy with their avant-garde destructed designs - to the Antwerp 6 who combined it all. The energy around these designers’ creative defiance remains visceral today and their originality is as contemporary as ever. Byroneque specializes in Comme Des Garçons, John Galliano, Alaïa, Moschino, Jean Paul Gaultier, Katharine Hamnett, Maison Martin Margiela, Issey Miyake, Stephen Sprouse, Yohji Yamamoto, Martin Margiela, Alaïa, Vivienne Westwood and the Antwerp 6.
We have a strict no-fur and no-exotic skins policy.
Byronesque is a celebration of subculture’s most revered fashion rebels.
Whose work inspires us to stand against the banality and mediocrity of pop culture: of statistics and selfies.
With a more meaningful alternative to fast-fashion and outdated nostalgia.
With something more polarizing. More provocative.
Movements like the Mods, punks, skinheads and New Romantics; they each had a point of view, creating a visual tension that alienated and inspired in equal measure. You were either with them or against them.
That happens rarely today.
The contemporary vintage clothes we sell have their own special history.
And the scars that tell their unique stories have inspired and outlived landfills of imitations.
We’re not borrowing from the past. We’re the future of fashion.

Ratings and Reviews
Best way to keep Fashion sustainable
Byronesque sells more than just vintage: they bring together quality, slowing down, and the long-lost appreciation for garments with solid ideology behind their creation. Their editorials on the history behind their pieces are TOP. 'Trendy' has never sounded so empty and wasteful.. when Viv Westwood said 'buy less, choose better' she really meant 'buy vintage', sustainable, intelligent fashion is an absolute must in today's (en)raging capitalist juggernaut.
Love this app
My vintage obsession can be hard to feed since I work a ton of hours and don't have much time to shop. Byronesque's personal shoppers find the super special pieces that I'm looking for with little effort on my part. Highly highly recommend.
A sleek, stylish and beautifully designed app. Whether you are in search of hard to find archived editorials or looking to find a rare vintage gem, this app is really a cut above the rest. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of all things divinely different.
