From Paris with love

From Paris with love

Behind the scenes with Renate and manageress Jemma as they travel to Paris on a buying trip for AW16…

 

I regularly travel to Paris for buy beautiful pieces for Vanilla – it’s one of my favourite cities and so inspiring and chic.

We always have a good time there, in between working very hard sourcing and buying pieces for the next collection.

And obviously we do our best to fit in a little personal shopping wherever we can!

Rushing between meetings with suppliers and showrooms, I make sure I dress for style and comfort.

Jeans are my staple, with a bright top and my favourite flat Meher Kakalia moccasins – the most comfortable and beautiful looking shoe on the planet.

For our trip in March we stayed at our favourite hotel Le Burgundy Paris, near Rue Saint-Honore and all the chic boutiques we love.

I simply adore the hotel – it’s so elegant and the staff are always so sweet and welcoming.
