If you’ve been in Buenos Aires a while, you might have noticed that it can be difficult to find cool clothes that are of good quality. If you have, you might want to check out the Editor Market which is a new department store that has opened on the corner of Corrientes and San Martin. There is also one in Palermo on Dorrego and Nicaragua. They describe themselves as a brand new shopping experience, a groundbreaking retail concept and it is nine floors of fashion and interior design products.

We went for a look around and we loved it. It really does have everything you need in one place. Menswear, womenswear, kids, beautiful things for the home, cosmetics, perfume and a really great coffee store and takeaway on the ground floor. What makes it different is the cutting edge look and feel of the place and the fact that their products are from Argentina´s up and coming and established designers.
 
The store is more like a showroom than simply a shop. The way everything is decorated has been carefully thought out and it really does look amazing. There has been a lot of attention to detail when it comes to the look and feel of the place from feathered walls in the ladies’ section to the artwork between floors in the stairways.

You might have heard the saying “you buy cheap, you buy twice” and this can be true. Yes, some of the products are expensive (and some are really expensive…) but you can find affordable things too, especially amongst the sale items right now. To be honest, it is worth a visit even if it just to browse and have a look around.

The coffee and takeaway on the ground floor is also filled with beautiful furniture and the food looks great!
 
Like the sign says: “9 pisos – no excuses” – go and see for yourself.

stretched Neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires:Some of the Biggest and Brightest!

Las Canitas
This small and trendy neighbourhood borders both Belgrano and Palermo and features a myriad of restaurants, cafes, bars, expensive boutiques, salons, and much more.  The streets are narrow and tree-lined, the presence of young hip people walking their dogs is ever present, and the overall vibe is laidback yet sophisticated.

Palermo

One of the biggest ‘barrios’ neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires, Palermo can be separated into mini neighbourhoods such as Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood, Palermo Chico, Palermo Viejo, and more. Throughout these neighbourhoods you can find everything from narrow cobblestone roads and old apartments to modern boutique hotels and first rate dining and shopping.

Recoleta

Sophisticated and located near to downtown, Recoleta has some of the cities most visited tourist spots including the Recoleta Cemetery, and is the perfect place to relax on the grass, check out some sights, enjoy some delicious Argentine cuisine, and mingle with the slight higher class of Buenos Aires.

Downtown
Downtown is a mix of cars, buses, and pedestrians, company and bank buildings, historical sites, theatres and cultural venues, street performances and protests, and simply the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires.

San Telmo

The oldest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires features gorgeous cobblestone roads, antique churches, vintage stores, antique stores and markets, Argentine restaurants and bars, and the best Sunday market in Buenos Aires. This area is known for its bohemian style and where the artists and musicians of Buenos Aires flock, and today, where many tourists find themselves enjoy a very unique flavour of Argentina.

La Boca
The port area of Buenos Aires, La Boca was where once all the immigrants landed, coming to Argentina to make new lives for themselves and find opportunity. Today, only Camanita, a small colourful street lined with people selling art, tango dancers, and restaurants, is really safe for tourists, a must-see in the area.
