Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Palette is an independent London based online fashion boutique; our passion is for objects of beauty that don’t always sit in the mainstream. By blending together an eclectic range of high-end vintage and modern design talent, we provide an entirely unique retail experience with a stable of products that are bound together by design innovation and craftsmanship.

Vintage pieces are acquired for their relevance to a modern, yet timeless wardrobe; stocking many highly regarded and collectable vintage brands, as well as other unlabeled pieces. All singled out for their iconic style, inherent quality and masterful construction. 

New and emerging designer brands are selected for their commitment to originality, quality and wearability. A high level of creative intelligence underlines all of our designers’ own philosophies which, is clearly echoed in the extraordinary work they produce.

Whether you are looking to collect and wear equisite vintage, or mix it with hard to find modern designer brands, our retail philosophy is not designed to appeal to the majority of styles or tastes. Perhaps this is why Palette has emerged as an independently minded fashion enterprise that serves a community of confident and discerning individuals who crave something a little less ordinary.

Palette was first established in May 2004. Here are a few words from those who have already embraced our philosophy ....

 

You have sent me heaven in the style of a Rundholz cardi! Thank you. 

Jo Faul, UK.

 

My Kowtow order arrived today. Another beautiful piece. You certainly choose the best of each collection of the already amazing designers you sell!
 
Thank you! Teresa

 

"Hello Marco, Just wanted to say thank you for my order! Arrived today and they are gorgeous, I'm thrilled to bits! Perfect fit and lovely colour! Very happy!

 Thank you for a great service" Alison Evers

 

"Dear Marco, Just to say how lovely the 'Edward' Arki've coat is. I wore it for the first time today (yes, a winter jacket and it's nearly May - clearly doesn't bode well for our summer!).  Not only stylish but warm and practical.  So pleased.  Many thanks. Looking forward to seeing what else Arki've come up with in the future!"   Jane Farrell

 

"Just to let you know my gloves have arrived safely.
As usual an efficient and excellent service, so once again I am a very happy customer. Especially so because I sadly lost the gloves I bought 
from you earlier this year and you had one pair left waiting for me to replace them - Phew!!!"   Mary Daykin

 

"Just to let you know that I popped home at lunchtime today and the package you sent arrived. I am now sitting awaiting a meeting wearing the Oscar De La Renta matched with red shoes and looking damned sensational - even if I do say so myself! Many thanks for all your help,the dress is really in pristine condition and I really cannot believe my luck."  Mairéad

 

"Your website is simple and easy to get around – it is what it is – a well established site for wonderful, individual clothing!" Carol Pina

 

             "Dear Marco, Just wanted to thank you for all your lovely advise. I had such a good time, did not know shopping could be so enjoyable and love my dress. I will definitely be recommending you and your wonderful shop. Regards"   Ann King

 

From our favourite fashion blogger.....
"Palette is more of a taste-maker's emporium than a shop shop... lovely selection of vintage always."   Susie Bubble 

 

“Having purchased the grey vintage 'Montego Bay' dress,  I want to say that it was a real pleasure...your passion for your product and your customer service are terrific.  And, just so you know, I have completely come around to your advice on shoes...small heel.. Ferragamo preferred... Best wishes”   Norinne Betjemann

   

“As a vintage enthusiast, Palette is my favourite place to buy vintage clothing. What is so special about Palette is that each carefully selected piece is in IMMACULATE condition - something so very rare in vintage retail. The owner, Marco, clearly has an exceptional eye for impeccable style and construction. The passion he has for the latter is evident in the unique collection of vintage fashion which has a truly contemporary feel. The carefully chosen collection means that there is none of the trawling through racks of clothing so common in other vintage fashion stores. A visit to Palette is an absolute pleasure, if not to buy then to gaze in awe and wonder at the timeless beauty of each unique piece! The contemporary collection also sits perfectly with the vintage collection. Outstanding!”   Rebecca S

  

“This is a truly great little find. Marco the owner knows his stock so well, he can pull out the perfect outfit for clothing and high fashion at reasonable prices. Really personable service and great fashion awareness.”   Krata
