My Vintage London - 40s connoisseur Fleur de Guerre

The Vintage Guide to London: Do you ever go to vintage events? If so, which ones would you recommend?

Fleur de Guerre: Well I put on my own events,  and would of course recommend my upcoming Halloween Party, but otherwise, I am a member of the New Sheridan Club who hold monthly meetings in Fitzrovia, film nights, and twice-annual parties, and plenty of other members put on events, too. Bourne and Hollingsworth events are brilliant for people interested in vintage and dressing up, but who aren’t perhaps as obsessed as me and my friends!

The Vintage Guide to London:What are your favourite vintage places in London?

Fleur de Guerre: I love the Park Lane Hotel, which has an amazing Art Deco ballroom and interior. I had the most amazing St-Germain (elderflower liqueur) afternoon tea there, and will be going back in December when they start doing them again for Christmas!

The Vintage Guide to London: What’s the must do vintage thing in London?

Fleur de Guerre: A visit to the V&A is a must-do I think, as well as the Imperial War Museum and the Horrockses exhibition at the Fashion and Textiles Museum, which looks amazing and is on till the end of the month… which reminds me – I need to see it myself!

    Hi Maria,

    Oh we’re working on the Paris version of this guide so stay tuned.

    However for now here some tips: check out the Les Puces flea market (Saint-Ouen porte de Clignancourt) for hundreds of antique and vintage stalls. Also head to the Bastille Area and pop into Come on Eileen (16/18 rue des taillandiers 75011) the most amazing vintage shop in Paris.

    There are more vintage shops in the Maret however they mostly sell overprized second-hand so nothing special…
