Shopping circuit: Recoleta

A historic icon of fashion, this neighbourhood has consolidated its position as the city’s main centre for luxury design

The neighbourhood of Recoleta has long been connected with fashion but it was in the 1980s when it hosted young art biennale that it really gained the position that it continues to hold today. The neighbourhood’s aristocratic origins, traditional and modern at the same time, can also be perceived in the products found here. 

Local and international designers collaborated to create one of the most elegant neighbourhoods in the city. The area’s exclusive boutiques, joined by major international brands, have found in the Calle Alvear and surrounding streets a public that seeks the highest quality.

Perfumes, jewellery, crafts and clothing for babies are some of the products available here, and as far as clothing goes, highlights include stores belonging to top local designers including Jésica Trosman, Evangelina Bomparola and Roma Renom.
