Tips&trics: Bannou

Creating your own vintage inspired label? A dream come true for the beautiful Faranak Mirjalili, who also happens to be the creative brain behind hers truly; I Love Vintage. We all know the amazing vintage webshop ILV and now we can open our hearts to a ravishing vintage inspired label called Bannou. It thrills me to be able to share this with you dears! Inspired by feminine silhouettes from history, with the accent on the 20s and 30s, Bannou will be an enrichment to the retro inspired labels we already now. How exciting!

The Audrey Dress

Bannou derives from the Persian language Farsi and means 'lady,' a nickname Faranak was gifted with by her grandfather. The name suits the sophisticated collection like a beautiful lace glove. Each design is like a cherry on our female curves and I do believe the collection will have something in store for every body type. While femininity is the key to this collection, sustainability is the red thread. With Bannou, you will always have transparency on where your garment comes from and how is made. I just love the fact that Faranak chose to make use of vintage fabrics!

The Shark Teeth Dress

The look book for this roaring collection was shot in Paris, mon cherie.... Where else could this gorgeousness have been captured and who else would have been a more perfect embodiment than the stunning Miss Pandora. So much beauty, so much style all together.... I literally went 'ooh an aah' when I browsed through the beautiful Bannou imagery! J'adore that the pieces are named after icons from fashion history (L) I can not wait for the entire collection to be revealed on ILV and I am very curious what you think of it? Here are some of my favorites, but you can already find more pieces on the webshop! Make sure to keep your eyes on I Love Vintage as this affordable collection contains many more delicious designs! Are you as psyched as I am?

The Louise Dress

The Daisy Buchanan Dress

The Dovima Dress

The Zoe Dress

The Tabacco Leaf Dress
And..... any favorites yet?


  1. Gorgeous! My favourite is definitely the tabacco leaf dress!

  2. It's hard to pick just one - the back on "Zoe" is so enchantingly lovely; Louise sings with 1930s glamour, and Audrey, well, Audrey is precisely the kind of frock I'd be thrilled to add to my own wardrobe any day of the week!

  3. Ik vind de jurken echt prachtig! En inderdaad heeeel leuk dat ze zoveel gebruik maakt van vintage materialen. Ben benieuwd naar de volledige collectie!

  4. Heel leuke jurken, de Tobacco Leaf is mijn favoriet! Ik zou alleen zo graag eens een jurk zien met voor smalle taille passend model, bij een grotere boezem en stevige armen flatteuze halslijn en mouwen. De Audrey heeft mooie mouwen, maar geen mooie halsuitsnijding daarvoor.

  5. I saw this dresses already and I just can congratulate to Faranak, dresses are divine, I like every dress!


... it makes my day!
