Staying in the literary space, the Libros Del Pasaje bookstore in Palermo is also a must-visit. The Planetarium was a location of absolute wonder, and had us both in tears. The experience definitely struck a chord; seeing the constellations dance across the domed ceiling left us in awe of the creation we are part of. Our visit was the starting point and stimulated the creation of The Zodiac Collection, an assortment of delicious tote bags inspired by each sign of the zodiac, which we released earlier this year.
We spent many hours drooling over and fondling luscious leathers, while sourcing for our soon-to-becreated collections, but we made sure that we set aside some time to trawl the local markets too. A favourite was the San Telmo
market, an utter treasure trove.
The market is a kaleidoscope of colour and pattern and boasts heavenly vintage lace and linen, delicious fresh fruit and vegetables, floor-to-ceiling
leather pieces, and hot men thrown in for good measure. What more could a gal want? Sultry days that overflowed with wandering, sightseeing, and retail therapy meant that we worked up quite an appetite and our restaurant of choice for a late-night nibble was definitely La Carniceria. It has the most delicious steak, glass of Malbec, and fiery Colombian hot sauce in town!
