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¬īs 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.

Students studying Spanish in Argentina know that drinking and driving is bad! But what about drinking and shopping…?

It is quite apparent that the people of Argentina enjoy drinking wine; most students taking Spanish classes in Argentina begin to notice this after only a few visits to local restaurants or bars, experiencing extensive wine lists and wines bottles occupying most tables. It is also appropriate to say that Argentines enjoy shopping; students taking Spanish classes in Argentina will also notice the amount of shops, boutiques, and malls in the city and the fact that they are always busy. During the next few Fridays, the city has taken these two loves and combined them to make the Wine Tour Urbano Palermo.

 

The Wine Tour Urbano Palermo celebrates the wines and fashion of Argentina while combining wine tasting with upper scale shopping. Students in Spanish immersion courses in Buenos Aires can head down to Palermo to indulge in tasting local Argentine wines while shopping in local boutiques and clothing stores during after hours. Every fashion and interior design store on Malabia, between Honduras and El Salvador, will be opening its doors to visitors between the hours of 7pm-10pm. This may just be heaven for most Spanish immersion students in Buenos Aires!

 

Students in Spanish immersion courses in Buenos Aires can look forward to September 19th when the event starts off. This night is devoted to the red wines, showcasing the Malbecs and Merlots of every winery. Studentsstudying Spanish in Argentina can then head back on October 17th for the Syrahs and Cabernets, and on November 21st, all wineries will present their best wines.

 

This is a fantastic event for students in Spanish immersion courses in Argentina to indulge in wine and fashion, walk among the Argentines of Buenos Aires, and practice their Spanish!! There will be two stands, one of Malabia and one of Honduras, where tickets will be sold on the day of the event for $45 pesos.
