Vintage Fringed Cardigan
Founded in 1991 by the then husband and wife team of Tiziano and Louise Mazzilli, the Voyage label kick-started the craze for boho chic with their astronomically priced ribbon-trimmed cardigans. Celebrities and fashionistas flocked to their Fulham Road store to get their hands on the one-off pieces – often flamboyant creations that could easily be part of a costume drama or stage show. The brand gained notoriety for their Members Only policy, famously turning away the likes of Madonna, Naomi Campbell and Julia Roberts. Instead of having an adverse effect, it only added appeal, so the stars who managed to enter the hallowed ground were much photographed wearing the prized items.
