An eclectic space full of shops, galleries, workshops and a lovely, lovely café. The Galería Patio del Liceo (Santa Fe Avenue 2729, Buenos Aires, Argentina) is home to many up and coming brands and independent designers very much worth checking out!
A favorite of young porteños, especially wonderful for those looking for something unique, be that to gift to someone special or to oneself, or to help local entrepreneurs. I personally recommend to take advantage of the eccentricity of the space and get lost in it, go up the stairs or down to the basements and discover the many beautiful things this small hidden gem has to offer.
MORTEN JOYERIA – LOCAL 13
An artisanal jewelry designer, Julieta Morten begins every piece with an illustration, an idea. She then transforms it into a workable design to finally finish it on metal (either silver 925 or bronze). She describes her process as a ritual, a space to experiment and accept that sometimes ideas change and morph into something new. Her pieces evoke nature and astrology, unity and femininity, they live outside the boundaries we create to explore new spaces.
PERCHERO FEDERAL – LOCAL 45
Perchero Federal brings together over 20 independent brands manufactured all over the country. It aims to bring the creative output of the many, often relegated, provinces of Argentina to the forefront, selecting creatives with an eco-friendly, sustainable approach to fashion. The pieces on offer are unique or belong to small productions, all of which prioritize the use of natural fabrics and national textiles, very much an artisanal approach. Perchero Federal is a project that looks to put Argentine auteur design on the map!
ROMANELA BO – LOCAL 13
Romanela Bo is born out of the idea of dressing diverse bodies, creating pieces that will make people feel comfortable and beautiful, no judgements. She insists in not using push-ups or rings in her lingerie, encouraging her costumers to find harmony and connect with their own skin. She believes it is through attention to detail, care and sensitivity that we can accompany our bodies through it’s changes and banish insecurities from our lives.
