I have posted many times about Vanilla Paris, on The King’s Road in London. It is a shop tucked away in an unassuming mall but it is an explosion of colour and at one time about ten years ago it was featured in just about every fashion magazine going.
I love going in there just looking. The owners don’t mind how long you take, and making a decision can be agonizing. You usually get a substantial discount if you buy more than one and they also do mail-order and have a webshop.
Now, for photographs. I bought another Vanilla Paris bag, which I shall review separately. It is a gorgeous soft pink and a style I have not bought from Vanilla before. There are so many bags in this shop that I could not take photos of all of them but Alex has promised to send me some to add to the article.
I have an orange and a purple ostrich as well as a very old (about 11 years old now I think) white bag on which Alex kindly lengthened the straps and exchanged the silver hardware for gold which they no longer do due to their high turnover.
