STORY BY: Kayla Monetta

FADER contributors cross boroughs, counties and states to find fine thrifted and vintage pieces on the cheap for our column, Thrintage. This week, Kayla Monetta hit up the East Village to check out Metropolis Vintage.

Walking into this store is like a time warp back to an edgier St. Marks, bringing back predominately ’80s inspired prints and styles sprinkled with a western feel, stuff you can imagine old-school East Village kids wearing. Metropolis is a bit pricey, but everything is one of a kind so it’s worth it.

Metropolis is the very first vintage store that I fell in love with when I first came to the city. I saw some gorgeous boots in the window and I wandered right in. Turns out, Metropolis is famous for carrying about a billion vintage boots and adding aged gold studs to them. Boots are in the $50 range, but the popular lace up studded versions can be up to $195 a pair.

Both leopard print and floral-lined jean jackets are what I would call ’80s masterpieces.

Liz Clairborne vintage floral dresses are always a summer staple, and Metropolis delivers some amazing prints. This Navajo styled shirt is another summer look.

Cheetah print floral lined jean jacket: $45.00

Vintage lace-up boots with aged studs: $195.00

Jean dress with studs: $35.00

Floral dresses: $35.00

Navajo inspired collared shirt: $19.00

Vintage Mountain printed jacket: $55.00

Metropolis Opens A Second Level!!

For Immediate Release :: 12.3.2009

Owner Richard Colligan has taken his New York chic vintage store, Metropolis Vintage, into the online world to better connect with the people who relish in it’s vast and endless vintage collection. Nestled in the heart of East Village, Metropolis is known for their amazing vintage shoe and boot collection along with concert T’s that line the walls of the two-level vintage gem. The second level is part of a brand new expansion that coincides with the recent openings and current dorms in the area including NYU, Parsons, New School, Cooper Union, and the School of Visual Arts. New York City’s favorite stars Chloe Sevigny, Rachel Weisz, Zoe Kravitz, Parker Posey, Keanu Reeves and top models Gemma Ward, Agness Dynn, and Joy Bryant also turn to Metropolis for their fabulous vintage looks that can been seen in magazines and the tabloids.

Now vintage enthusiasts living or visiting the NYC area that have cherished the shop for the past 19 years, can be more involved with the store’s community. News, promotions, and store happenings can all be seen online and will be promoted throughout their website, Twitter and Facebook accounts. Richard Colligan is passionate about Metropolis. “My goal for Metropolis is to treat the store like a museum by picking items that are unique and special, but also being fun, affordable and wearable for any night on the town,” says Richard.

Metropolis’ future is bright. Metropolis and it’s newly opened second level can be seen in the upcoming film, “Happy, Thank You, More Please.” written by How I Met Your Mother’s Josh Radnor. Along with movie spotlights, the shop will also be opening an online store for clients not located in NYC. From Manhattan fashionistas to Brooklyn hipsters, Richard suggests people stay tuned because as the neighborhood continually evolves, as does Metropolis… and if a store knows how to bring the fun into fashion, it’s Metropolis.

New college students and seasoned college graduates have turned to Metropolis for their [vintage] fashion needs. Metropolis has become a staple to New York City’s vintage fashion community.
