Taipei isn’t just the capital of Taiwan – it’s also the fashion capital of the island nation. Home to many up and coming fashion designers, the city is home to boutiques that are a cut above the rest. Here are seven of the very best shopping spots in town.
AMPM is one of the leaders in Taipei street style. Their edgy brand and collaboration work with a wide variety of both designers and artists makes them one of the biggest trendsetters in the city, and they’re not too expensive either. Their fun attitude towards clothing sees them breaking a few taboos along the way, but that’s what they’re all about.
Finding good vintage clothing shops in Taipei isn’t as easy as you think. They are few and far between, but when you do go looking for one, make sure it’s Damn It! Vintage. Specializing in 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s clothing, what makes this place unique isn’t just the treasure trove of amazing vintage clothing, but the fact that it’s located in a temple. Unusual? Sure, but when it comes to fashion, they do say anything goes.
