As one of Phnom Penh’s first vintage fashion stores, owner Chum Dalis opened Color Vintage in July 2011. With racks full of vintage and retro items that include dresses, trousers, skirts, shoes, bags and accessories, the stock is constantly changing, serving up a variety of one-off styles. With second-hand items sourced from across the globe – especially Australia and Japan – Dalis and her team of talented Cambodian women lovingly restore the items before hanging them on the rails. Free alterations are also offered to ensure the perfect fit.

All the Cambodian cool kids head to this small market in the Boeung Keng Kang area of Phnom Penh. As well as being the place where locals in the area snap up their daily goods for the day, this market has become popular with youngsters looking to bag a bargain in the form of a unique outfit. Around the market, a number of stores have cropped up selling second-hand and refashioned fabrics sourced from across the globe.
Located in Russian Market, The Vintage Shop serves as a tribute to Cambodia’s great artists of the 1960s and 1970s.

Among them are album prints, vinyl and discs from Cambodian Space Project, remastered tracks from the Cambodian rock ‘n’ roll era such as Sinn Sisamouth, and retro-inspired t-shirts and other items.
