Alto Palermo Review
A prime location, choice shops, and a pushy marketing campaign have made Alto Palermo popular. Giggly teenage hordes are seduced by its long, winding layout. Ladies who lunch sip espresso in the cafés on the top-level food hall. The 154 shops are strong on local street-wear brands such as Bensimon and Bowen for the boys and Akiabara, Ona Sáez, Las Pepas, and Rapsodia for the girls. Check out trendy local designers María Vázquez, Isabel la Católica, and AY Not Dead for way-out party clothes, and Kill for simple yet effective staples. Paruolo, Sibyl Vane, and Lázaro are the best of many good shoe and handbag shops. Surf-and-skate store Cristobal Colón does board shorts and All-Stars; local versions of Puma and Adidas footwear disappear fast despite high price tags.
