‘Start at the unmissable Portobello Road in the half-bourgeoisie, half-bohemian area of Notting Hill. The address is One of a Kind, a paradise for fans of vintage. Here you can find Chanel bags, brightly coloured, leopard print fur, gorgeous little hats, printed dresses and sunglasses and necklaces in every possible variety. You’ll be spoiled for choice. It’s a true gem: Tom Ford, Stella McCartney and Karl Lagerfeld have all visited it for inspiration. So don’t miss it.’


‘Kate, Naomi and Sienna all shop here for vintage finds that they can be sure they won't see anyone else wearing. For such A-list guests there's a secret room, which holds their more exclusive pieces; ask owner Jeff Ihenacho sweetly and he'll give you a sneak peak inside (by appointment only). Photographs of celebrity clients hang in the busy shop giving the small space the kind of street cred that money can't buy. Tom Ford, Jean Paul Gaultier, Stella McCartney and Karl Lagerfeld are not just labels stocked here; all have visited the store for inspiration. Far from second best hand-me-downs, all clothes are kept in pristine condition and show no signs of their advancing years. Accordingly, they are sold at high-end designer label prices. Jeff tirelessly scours auctions, markets and jumble sales, but only the most fashionable clothes make it to the tightly packed rails’
