Vintage Zizou is a hidden treasure in Castle Arcade in Cardiff. Walking into the historic Castle Arcade, past people having their evening coffees at Coffee Barker you eventually stumble upon the vintage gem that is Vintage Zizou.

Vintage Zizou was opened in March 2012 as the owner, Anca Maria Cesar wished to dress women at affordable prices. She says, “Our clothes are good quality and a little bit different but very affordable.”

Vintage Zizou stocks anything vintage from the 1920’s to the 20th century. The shop also sells contemporary items which is clear to see with the modern looking handbags displayed in the shop.

Anca Mara Cesar says that jewellery and dresses sell particularly well. She thinks that vintage items are very popular now due to Downton Abbey and films such as The Great Gatsby, both of which showcase period fashion.

From faux fur coats to glamorous dresses and leather bags, Vintage Zizou stocks everything that the modern trendsetter would love.

Anca Maria Cesar thinks that the Cardiff fashion scene is brilliant compared to other cities and says vintage remains popular in Cardiff. In the future she said she may bring menswear to Vintage Zizou. So, keep your eyes peeled!
