Boutique Nadine in Florence, is simply me in a store. Not only do we share a name, but Boutique Nadine is a little gem that specialises in carefully selected vintage pieces as well as supporting and housing designs and jewellery from local emerging designers – two of my great loves.
With two locations; one at Lungarno Acciaiuoli 22r which focuses more on clothing and accessories, and runs along the gorgeous Arnaud River (which is where I took these photographs) and another on Via de’ Benci which specialises more in unique accessories and interesting ornaments. My attraction to this shop come’s from the fact that it’s clearly well thought-through and beautifully merchandised. There’s none of that jumbled look you find at most vintage stores and sometimes that’s exactly what you want – the hard work is done for you!
Their selection of vintage clothes, bags and shoes are a great mix of classical, sophisticated and quirky. They’re relatable to a variety of styles, and, for those who love a little designer on a budget, they also have a great selection of high-end designer pieces, including very well-priced Burberry trench coats – which I was drooling over – pristine Chanel jackets, Louis Vuitton Luggage, Gucci, Fendi and much more. Both stores are must on your shopping list when in Florence!
