Arguably the top fashion designer in Buenos Aires, Ramírez’s store and clothes exude a minimalist elegance that borders on the monastic (although the garments, which Ramírez designs only in black and white, are certainly more body-conscious than a monk’s robes). This year Ramírez is returning to leather after a several-year hiatus, but the vast majority of his clothing for men and women is in black silk, linen, wool, and satin, and the lines are sharp, simple, and close to the body—the kind of stuff that makes you feel greyhound sleek. The showroom—not in Palermo as one would expect, but in historic, battered San Telmo near Ramírez’s home—exhibits only a few dozen items at a time.
If you can’t shell out 2,000 pesos (about $1,500) for a little black cocktail dress, T-shirts start at 110 pesos (about $60) and dress shirts at 260 ($150).
