A Former Vogue Editor’s Little Black Book

A Former Vogue Editor’s Little Black Book

Who better than a former Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar fashion and beauty editor to open up their little black book? Here, Madrid-based fashion editor Sofia Paramio Delgado, aka @SophiaParamio, shares her favourite fashion destinations.

If I could only shop on one street, it would be Melrose Place, in Los Angeles. The whole place is so inspiring – especially the Isabel Marant or The Row stores. They are so special I think I could live in them. 

The most unusual shop in the world used to be Colette. Everything you bought there was – and still is – special and different. RIP.

The coolest piece I’ve ever found on my travels is a John Galliano dress that I wore to my pre-wedding party. I found it in Paris and will love it forever. Paris has, no question, the best department stores in the world – Galleries Lafayette and Printemps are just two examples.

I enjoy shopping in artisan stores – especially those in Mexico, Morocco or Colombia. My style is a bit bohemian, especially during the summer, and you can find some really unexpected hero pieces in these places.




My perfect shopping day would include a good lunch and the best company. 

The coolest resort label is Agua by Agua Bendita. I love Colombia and each print and design from the label reflects its spirit. For swimwear, I love Hunza G and Marysia – their styles are comfy and timeless, and the coolest under-the-radar brand is Bernadette Antwerp – it’s a mother-daughter duo who make the most beautiful modern and luxury pieces.

Depending on the piece, I tend to have a different go-to store. I always turn to Again Cashmere for jumpers, Levi’s for jeans, and Frankie Shop has a good selection of basics with an on-trend twist. 

I never walk away empty handed from Galleries Lafayette. I always pick up something new at Aurelie Bidermann in the shoe department, or in the children's section for my daughter. 





My favourite vintage store in the world is a small jewellery shop in Paris. It's, more or less, in front of the Mandarin Oriental and Costes Hotel, but I can't remember the name – they always have the most incredible pieces in the window. In Spain, I like Delparamo vintage, and also Vestiaire Collective. My favourite vintage piece I’ve ever bought is an old Rolex

If I could only wear one brand again, it would be Saint Laurent or Isabel Marant. For something special, I go to Chanel. I know it’s a cliché, but if you’re looking for a one-off ready-to-wear piece, you'll find it there – or at Hermès

The best fashion gift I’ve ever given is a watch from Cartier, and the best gift I’ve ever received is my Chanel 2.55 bag in black – the classic one. It’s the ultimate forever purchase.
