Niche Lane – Fine Leather

niche lane holdall

There’s something about a leather bag that gives it character. When new, its skin is smooth and glows, its shape well -defined with crisp firm edges and shiny buckles. As it accompanies its owner on endless meetings and commutes, spends time in plane and gym lockers, gets stuffed too full and knocked over, it begins to show its age.

It may get a little saggy around the edges, with creases and blemishes from life’s work and workouts. The new young thing gradually becomes the old faithful. Choosing such a life-long friend requires time and advice to ensure it lasts your pace and keeps looking the part throughout the ever-changing fashion cycles.

The Vintage HQ

The Vintage HQ Cowbridge

Every year The Vintage HQ brings some of its most recent acquisitions to Cowbridge. Furs of all descriptions, treasured designer labels, true vintage clothes, unique accessories and collectables are to be admired and ready to bring pleasure to their next appreciative owner.

Lose yourself in gorgeous fur, make a statement with a genuine bomber jacket, answer enquiring friends with ‘Yes, it is a Gucci handbag’. There are some things that never go out of fashion but finding them takes time.

The owner, Mike Forman, is always pleased to relate the provenance of each item and also offers a professional valuation and purchase service to those ready to part with a favourite fashion item or heirloom.

A bespoke furrier service helps look after those precious fur coats, jackets, gilets and stoles. There is also a hire and loan service, for occasions such as a wedding or themed event.

It would be impossible to showcase the entire collection and there are always new arrivals, so if you are looking for something particular then ask Mike and he will make enquiries on your behalf. In the meantime, view a wonderfully eclectic range of vintage fashion at The Vintage HQ instagram page.

Cool linen – Southern Italy

We first discovered Autori Capresi in June 2012 during a passiagata through the narrow streets of historic Sorrento. The shop entrance exuded coolness and drew you in from the sultry street air to appreciate a wonderful selection of exquisite and unique hand crafted clothing using the purest and lightest linen. The owner, Antonio Truppa, and his family are passionate about their linen and the production of high quality customised clothes and accessories.

Carefully selected hats, belts, scarves and sandals complement the linen colours and styles to keep you looking and feeling cool. There are outfits for all ages suitable for ‘lay back casual’ to ‘smart casual’ occasions. Perfect for your Neapolitan Riviera vacation and irresistible presents for the grand children!

Autori Capresi Accessories

Not surprisingly such originality and quality have attracted a worldwide following with visitors becoming members of an exclusive client base. Demand from the Sorrento and Capri outlets together with customised orders from existing clientele means there is no online store. All the more reason to add Autori Caprese to your ‘must see’ list during a visit Sorrento or Capri.

A full range of the Autori Capresi collections can be seen on their website with links to instagram and facebook.
