Go to Mexico it was a surreal experience! The trip is amazing, especially for those who like to visit countries with such a lively history and culture.
And besides many foods spicy and tours in museums, I took the opportunity to do some shopping at Mexico City and go through some amazing stores. For now I have listed the five that I visited, and that also deserve your attention!
Who said the style vintage is not in fashion? At Empty, the older the pieces are, the more successful they are. THE curation of them specializes in clothing from the 1800s to 1999. Most of these historical items are literally collector’s items, especially those considered rare.
The store has sophisticated pieces female and male, always following the vintage line of brands like Chanel, Celine, Dior, Hermes and Louis Vuitton. To give you an idea of the care they have with the selection, their team travels the world, choosing minutely the most vintage pieces of these fashion brands.
AN Empty is located in the neighborhood The countess, a central part of Mexico City, and at the bottom of the store you will still find a charming cafe. In addition to the vintage line, their collection features historical pieces that characterize world musical culture, especially classic items from the punk rock.
That boutique has such a unique style that you can’t even describe it. All parts are made by small local manufacturers from Mexico and, therefore, clothes and accessories do not have an extremely defined pattern.
AN Taxonomy has been highly praised for being a design store that is breaking new ground in the Mexican creative industry. To find them, search for Carlota Hotel: the store is inside it and can be a little difficult to find.
In addition to clothes, you will find many pieces of decoration, jewels and even cooking utensils kitchen. Some well-known names are: Iker Ortiz and Carla Fernandez, but they all have one feature in common: the Mexican traits.
The reaction of those who pass by the store windows Pay Show room is always very similar: people are shocked admiring the eccentricity that brand. It is practically impossible to pass through the store, mainly because the colors of the pieces are vibrant and neon.
The style of Raul and Molo, Pays designers, is simply only. They are inspired by the endless colors that color the streets of Mexico. And also in the characteristic shape of the 80s, as with ponchos and sweaters. All pieces in the store are unisex and full of personality. This reflects a lot the brand’s ideals, of taking fashion as a form of expression.
This store was born out of a couple’s concern with their daughter about chemicals. But wait, how was it? In 2016, these parents realized that components Chemicals harmful to health were not only in personal hygiene items. And yes also in the other care products used daily by children.
Searching for more products natural, the couple realized that there were no options accessible 100% natural and quality. Observing this opportunity, they decided to study and start producing creams and soaps of totally vegetal origin. For this, they use various plants, fruits, flowers and natural oils to make biodegradable alternatives for personal care.
The great differential of Initiate is in the preparation of the goods, since you practically choose and customize instantly your beauty product. The customer has the opportunity to decide each component, from the base to the aroma, and takes home a alternative Natural which, after all, has a returnable packaging.
And speaking of sustainability, I looked for sustainable fashion stores in Mexico and the recommendation could be none other than Goodbye guys. Since 2008 they want to change the fashion scene, mainly in search of more social justice and preservation ecological.
Therefore, the store functions as a thrift store with clothes vintage, but I have to confess that I didn’t like their selection so much. If your style has this vibration folk, maybe you like the store more than I do.
One thing that certainly attracts a lot of attention is the large amount of glasses vintage. And also the T-shirts old (and classic) from Harley Davidson. Another highlight of bye Folk is their specialty in custom-made shoes there!
