Shop: Atelier Mayer






A beautiful vintage shop in London.

Selling beautiful 20th century vintage pieces from well known and perhaps not so well known designers, Carmen Haid certainly has an eye for exquisite fashion and accessories. Her shop, Atelier Mayer, will have you browsing and wanting. "My grandmother, Klaudia Mayer, was an Austrian haute couture tailor whose atelier was originally founded in 1927," Haid explained. "The company has updated her heritage to the 21st Century in the form of a luxury e-boutique and a salon by appointment for vintage fashion lovers, collectors, students, designers and artists." There are a number of pieces that I would personally love to have, such as this incredible, cream, off-the-shoulder gown and this Christian Dior bow necklace. Isn't it a lovely shop?

+ this week's finds: some pretty swimwear and things to wear on the beach (the black jumper and one piece are my favorites) / a beautiful, drapey top / a fabulous bright orange watch from La Mer / an adventure in Kenya, Africa / shoes & stairs / incredibly bold shoes / the most haute fridge I have come across to date! / and lastly, a beautiful lighting shop that will leave you dreaming...

  11. You never fail to provide the perfect eye candy Sarah. I thought of you as I put in a bit of gravel in my backyard, those gravel backyards that you featured some time ago still inspire me. Hope you have a wonderful summer weekend!

  14. Sarah I love this link you shared today. Really good vintage shops are hard to come by, but this one seems amazing.
    I simply adore these timeless pieces, and would love to own that engraved cuff, the Hermes travel clock and of course a Kelly bag.. *sigh*..

    Hope you have a beautiful weekend over there.

    Big hugs

    xx Charlotta
