You've landed on Planet Retro

Planet Retro has been serving up retro cool to the Wellington region since 2004. While retro has become a wide and encompassing term, we like to strip it back to basics and build our own take on NZ vintage and retro style. Vintage dresses, shirts and other vintage clothing from the 1950’s thru the 1990's form a core of the style of products we love. Add to that the wild Sci-Fi take on the future that people had back in that era, plus popular current pop culture and you're getting a feel for what Planet Retro is all about.

What's pushing our retro buttons right now...

Planet Retro Originals

Planet Retro Originals

Years of trying to source NZ vintage clothing often left us not being able to find exactly what we, or our customers, wanted. The answer was creating our own brand Planet Retro Originals. These are very limited runs of new garments made from vintage clothes patterns. Amazing often sci-fi inspired fabric completes the funky feel that is pure Planet Retro. Our Planet Retro Originals range include vintage dresses and skirts, but we also create sweet men’s vintage shirts and Planet Retro Original Wellington jewellery too.

New & Vintage T Shirts

New & Vintage T Shirts

When we started Planet Retro, it was hard to find a good selection of funky vintage clothes in NZ, and pulling together collections for the shop grew out of sourcing vintage dresses and rockabilly clothing for ourselves and friends. Nearly twenty years on and we still love vintage tees. A good t shirt goes with anything, and we reckon there isn’t anything better than vintage graphic tees and modern ones with a nod to retro and pop culture.

Funko Pop Vinyl

Funko Pop Vinyl

They’re not strictly retro, but we love Pop Vinyls, and we know you do too. The collectables of the future, here at Planet Retro we stock a carefully curated collection of NZ funko pop, including vaulted pop figures. Our taste in Funko Pop tend toward old school and more modern cartoon and comic characters, horror creatures and favourites from TV and movies. Visit our Petone store to see Pops that haven't yet made it onto our website. If we haven’t got the pop vinyl you want, we can try to track it down.

Kimonos and Japanese Clothing

Kimonos and Japanese Clothing

While most retro clothing tends to be 50’s US influenced, we really like the classic Japanese aesthetic too. What could be more retro than a stylish kimono, a garment design that had its origins over a thousand years ago? In our Petone store we offer a carefully curated range of classic authentic Japanese Kimonos (a long robe) and Haori (kimono jackets) direct from Kyoto, Japan. We also sell a range of Japanese inspired vintage clothes using fabric and sewing patterns from Japan. See what other Japanese pieces we have here online.
