Mercado de San Telmo: The perfect weekend stroll. I love flea markets and vintage shopping, even though it can be crowded and filled with tourists this market is worth the visit. Here you will find everything from antique furniture to great hats, jewelry, and art pieces.
San Telmo Neighborhood, Buenos Aires
Cabinet Oseo: Designers Celina Saubidet and Marina Molinelli Wells open their studio to share the most amazing handcrafted pieces from their brand: Cabinet Oseo. Inspired by the human body and anatomy, their pieces can't be missed. As unique as it gets!
Contact them for personal visit to their studio, or go see at Tienda Malba and Kabinett store.
Aracano: One of my favorite Argentinian jewelry designers. I've worn his bronze chain arrowhead necklace for years and it never gets old or bores me. Handcrafted with chunky yet such elegant style. Go visit!

Arandu: If you're searching for the perfect gaucho look or just specific pieces, (ie. espadrilles, ponchos, silver belts) this is the right place! The leather is local so the quality is incomparable. They have stores all around so you can't miss it.
Fagliano: Impeccable handmade polo leather boots are a true Argentinian investment piece that will last forever. The small factory is beautiful itself and you can see how they manufacture every pair.
Tambo Nuevo 1449, B1686EOU Hurlingham, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Somos THEM: Amazing and original prints and cool young pieces for everyday use. A perfect small store in the heart of the Palermo neighborhood.

Carla Di Si: One of the first Under Our Sky collaborators and I've loved her designs almost since she started.
Gurruchaga 1677, Palermo Viejo, Buenos Aires
Pablo Ramirez: One of the best designers in Argentina. He creates chic, simple and impeccably tailored pieces and garments. He uses no other color than purely black and maybe white.
Peru 587, San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Tramando: Designer Martin Churba gets that original and intriguing is the way to go when it comes to design?at least for me! His fabrics and textures are unique and original. I always get compliments when I wear a piece by him.
Rodr?guez Pe?a 1973, 1021 CABA, Argentina
Giribet: Handmade polo leather boots.
Medina 2028, Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Argentina
Dubi?: Conceptual design and simple pieces with a unique twist (for example, impeccably tailored shirts with cut-out shoulders). They designed a pair of white boots that I wear nonstop.
