Welcome to Vanilla! We are very excited to be entering our 4th year, and promise to carry on the good work - bringing the Best of British designers to a wider public. The last three years have been a wonderful rollercoaster ride; we’ve worked hard to share our passion for beautiful British-designed handbags and accessories with our customers from all over the South Coast and we feel privileged to be able to bring iconic labels to our stunning shop in sunny Worthing.
Here in the Vanilla online store you will be able to see a limited selection of our stock. Of course the best way to buy a handbag is to come into our shop, see it, feel it, try it, fall in love... but until you can do that, this is the next best thing. Our stock changes frequently, and we only keep one or two pieces of each design, so keep watching for updates – we promise not to be boring!
As much as it scares us to admit it, it's only 10 weeks until Christmas!! Luckily, we are brimming with AW13/14 goodies!
The amazing Vivienne Westwood collection – full of her spectacular colour and shapes – are works of art in their own right. Lots of lovely leathers and her trademark tartans in. We also have her Jewellery collection – can't resist it! New to us for AW13/14 is Vivienne Westwood Man - including a stunning black leather holdall! Want, Want, Want!!
The Lulu Guinness collection, including her signature ‘lips’ clutches, is beautiful, quirky and ladylike. Fabulous new shapes, colour mash ups and animal prints are the focus this season. We love them all!!
Radley have come of age and you can see their ‘rite of passage’ in the earthy warm practical leathers - bags you will really be proud to use everyday. And for the first time we have a very masculine men’s range, including luggage, wallets, ipad cases, etc.
Zatchels - all british made, superb quality and fabulous, vibrant colours - very much 'of the moment' but will last a lifetime! Including a Hello Kitty Range!!!
Coccinelle - no we know - not British, but a great Italian brand, using sumptuous suedes and leathers to fashion stunningly beautiful, but ultimately always practical, handbags, shoulder bags and clutches.
We have many other equally fabulous designer names in store, including Makki – great party and evening bags in art deco-style eelskin, Blondie Mania – sumptuous tactile leathers in great colours, Stunning Cashmere and Merino scarves, wraps and gloves from Johnsons of Elgin, I could go on but I think now you should take a look.
And don’t forget we also have gorgeous, distinctive gloves, scarves, belts, wallets, umbrellas – all sorts!
Come in and see us in the Royal Arcade in Worthing, just off the seafront (and have an ice cream on the pier to reward yourself for all that hard work choosing your bag!), or browse the stock we have here in the online store.
