Keep shopping in Buenos Aires...

After our first post about interesting shops in Buenos Aires, we have been contacted by several readers asking the same question: "Why didn't you write about my favorite shop...?" or "We found this place and is sooooo good..."
Therefore, we added these stores to the list:

For Women:
Galeria Promenade - Alvear Palace Hotel
First class shoes and bags in a small shop inside the Hotel Alvear (the most classic of all hotels in South America). Everybody who is somebody shops here (we wrote about this place here).We spotted their shoes at the last Fashion Week in New York.

Libertad 1532 - phone 4813 0805
An Architect turned Fashion Designer, her clothes are extremely interesting in texture and shape. High quality and unbelievable craftsmanship. Her clothes sell in Buenos Aires, Europe and New York. She is one of the Designers showing her talent in Bryant Park for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2009 (read more here).

Peru 587 - phone 4342 7154
Elegant and timeless, mostly in black so new yorkers can shop with confidence: clothes will always be in style.

Juan Perez
Marcelo T. de Alvear 1441 - phone 4815 8442
Vintage at its best. A perfect place to get lost for hours, knowing you will fond something truly amazing. Convenient downtown location (clothes for men and women).

For men:
Avenida Alvear 1315 - phone 4815 2698
This is a true polo lifestyle brand, discreet and high quality. Expensive. Another store in Galerias Pacifico Shopping Mall.

Avenida Quintana 333
Handmade and very conservative shoes of extremely good quality. Great gifts for dad (or grandpa).

More to come...Wait until our next post, because in Buenos Aires shopping never ends.


  1. Thank you for adding all these famous addresses!
    I love the first picure, the shoes and the bag!


  2. Dear Greet: The shoes and the bags are from Santesteban, our dear friends at the Alvear Hotel. They sell in Japan and soon in the States. Not yet in Europe...
