A resource and running commentary on stylish London

Vintage furs with a twist, if you hurry!

I know…

It’s been a little while since stylishmews has posted anything new and interesting.

IMG_5497Today I popped into a little mews tucked away in the heart of Chelsea to visit Letizia Tomacelli. She is there until tomorrow, but for those of you having the time and the inclination, I greatly suggest you make your way to Notting Hill where she will be showing her glorious collection of restyled vintage fur jackets, coats, gilets and accessories until this Friday, October 10.

In 2009 Maria Paola Pedetta, a costume designer and fashion stylist set up a studio where she designed  and remodelled  vintage furs.  Using her experience and contacts in Florence and throughout Italy, vintage furs are ingeniously mixed with antique Indian sari fabrics.


I loved this Mongolian lamb oversized poncho


Great looking fur parka with a zip and exquisite embroidery panel on sleeve


One of the fantastic bags I purchased!

Detail is the essence of Dejamis; on a cuff, collar or lining you will find exquisite embroideries and fabrics.

Come with your very own fur and Letizia is happy to advise you on how deconstructing your fur can metamorphose into something unique and fabulous. Furs take on new life and are tailored in the most fashionable manner.
If you would like to re-style your old fur coat into something modern, unique and wearable, bring it along and be sure to contact Letizia, allowing her time to discuss it with you.

      You just missed her. She was there last week, but will most certainly return. Get in touch with her and ask her, or certainly be put on her mailing list

    This is a wonderful insight into Alladin Caves hidden in London. I love it!
