IN the heart of Marbella old town sits a dazzling trove of Louis Vuitton holdalls, Chanel handbags and nostalgic Frank Sinatra LPs – not to mention classy pieces from Gucci and Dior.
Coining ‘vintage’ long before it was cool, Richard and Amanda Zizzi-Knight opened Déjà Vu Marbella Vintage in 1997 and have been riding the classic wave ever since.
They are soon to celebrate 20 years running the boutique and three decades in fashion on the coast.
Bath-born Amanda’s mother was a model in the 1940s and an eye for style runs in her blood.
“If you have a special piece for us from the three big designers – Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel – we will buy it outright in cash but generally work by giving you the money after your piece is sold,” she tells the Olive Press.
“The beauty of being in Marbella is that iconic fashion models from the 1960s and 1970s bring in clothes to sell – and you just never know what treasures will come through our door ,” adds Richard.
“Vintage to us is anything top quality, great design and perfectly preserved.”
