Buenos Aires Shopping



Patio Bullrich Review

The city's most upscale mall was once the headquarters for the Bullrich family's meat-auction house. Inside, stone cow heads mounted on pillars still watch over the clientele. A colonnaded front, a domed-glass ceiling, and steel supports are reminders of another age. Top local stores are relegated to the lowest level, making way for the likes of Lacroix, Cacharel, and Calvin Klein. Urban leatherware brand Lazaro has a shop here, as does Palermo fashion princess Jessica Trosman, whose spare women's clothes are decorated with unusual heavy beadwork. The enfant terrible of Argentine footwear, Ricky Sarkany, sells dangerously pointed stilettos in colors that walk the line between exciting and kitsch. Named after the polo team, edgy but elegant menswear brand Etiqueta Negra has its first store outside the snooty northern suburbs here, while La Martina is giving them fierce competition. When the bags begin to weigh you down, stop for cake at Nucha, on the Avenida del Libertador side of the building.
