How much?

What can I say other than I almost spaffed my vintage Farah pants! You see every one of my regular trips to Rome – my wife is Italian, fact fans – is punctuated by palpitations of excitement as we approach Fabriano’s Fiumicino boutique. So imagine the joy when I clocked this supreme Italian stationery being stocked in what is simply a truly amazing store. Designed by Kit Grover and brimming with killer goods, you’ll find all manner of select items such as a wide range of Moleskin goods, including their slick bags, books and the Star Wars range, there are paper Lady Gaga/David Bowie dolls, an assortment of books and much, much more. Get on down.  / Eamon Downes
