If you have ever been to New York and are a fan of vintage clothing, the name Williamsburg should mean something to you, as it is the name of a well-known vintage fashion district, the home of the Hispter movement. This store became very popular after Sarah Jessica Parker – famous for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City – bought a dress there, which she later wore to a gala. It is one of the most popular vintage stores.

El diván de Cocó
- Calle de los Estudios, 12
The small store El diván de Cocó, located far from Malasaña in the Latina neighborhood, is run by a very nice Argentine woman. It is strategically located just at the beginning of the popular Rastro market and across from a well-known record and vinyl store of the neighborhood. Coats, raincoats at good prices and a shoe collection that ranges from the glamor of the great designers to the simplicity of local stores.
At El diván de Cocó, we love the accessories: we saw leather bags and briefcases that were only in the window for a few hours. Their costume jewelry is also very attractive, a bit more classic and pin-up than in other vintage stores.

The clothes are quirky, original and reasonably priced.
Enjoy your walk, your shopping and above all … Madrid!
