Creme de la Creme: a bespoke shopping service
Creme de la Creme is a bespoke and tailor made shopping service, founded by Anglo-Argentine Vanessa Bell, who has lived in Buenos Aires since 2010. She is a trend hunter and freelance writer on Buenos Aires lifestyle, fashion, design and food for magazines such as Monocle and Wallpaper and a correspondent for The Independent as well as writing for other international mediums. She creates personalised itineraries based on each client's objectives and interests which they outline in a questionnaire.
Each tour is 100% personalised, and her areas of expertise cover everything from emerging fashion designers to vintage, antiques, interior design, leatherwear and artisan produce, art and the local restaurant scene. A tour can focus on one area or include a varieties of interests, such as visiting new and emerging fashion designers in appointment only showrooms, the best secret spots to buy vintage clothing, and a visit to an up and coming artist in their atelier or gallery. Many of her recommendations don't even make it into the guidebooks.
