Chine Machine is one of those seriously cool vintage shops that also stocks a good range of secondhand contemporary pieces from brands including Sandro, Surface to Air and Sessun.
Of notable mention is the shop’s selection of shoes on sale- from Lanvin to Gucci via Walter Steiger.
Some of the preloved pieces I saw during my visit to Chine Machine’s Montmartre outpost (it has another shop in the 10th) included an Alpaca-mix grey American Vintage cardigan for €25, a pale pink Acne sweatshirt for €25 and a pair of trousers by The Kooples for €15.
I didn’t buy anything for myself this time, but my friend bought a €20 leather jacket and a pair of Cole Haan leather and suede boots for €30.
