Born is the neighbourhood of small (and posh) boutiques. You wouldn’t find a department store there, if not only for the fact the buildings are not big enough. So what if you want to offer a wide assortment of luxurious designer labels, interior design, exclusive fragrances and hipster gadgets? You need to be creative, as the equivalent of Harrods wouldn’t fit. The people of La Comercial were that creative and collected several little shops around one block. The shop has 6 different locations that offer collections for men/women fashion and home accessoires, more or less next to or in front of each other.
I must confess I normally skip the fashion shops, but if you can afford designer brands like Paul Smith, Missoni and Vivienne Westwood it is definitely worth a visit. For those who, like me, have a much smaller budget there is still a reason to stop by though. I especially love the “Home” location. Here you can find many perfect gift options. The offer is exclusive, original and international. You will find a mix of design influences from all over the world. From French Marseillan soap to special Indian tea infusions or from Dutch design candle holders to Queen Elizabeth shaped gadgets. This is the kind of shop where I can always find a gift for anyone or where I can spoil myself with something new for my apartment. And don’t worry, I can assure you it will have something in store that’s suitable for every budget.
