Palermo Soho


Buenos Aires,


If there is one neighborhood that epitomizes the retail renaissance of Buenos Aires, it is Palermo Viejo, also known as Palermo Soho. Droves of young designers have opened boutiques here, and more are arriving every day—in part an unwitting result of the post-2002 devaluation of the peso, an economic crisis that made importing designer clothes prohibitively expensive. Below are a few more of my finds, but the fun of shopping in Palermo Soho is wandering around and uncovering your own favorites.
