Shopping Fashion in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Argentine fashion making a statement around the globe
Before the 2001 crack in Argentina, if you were to ask around the world to random people what they knew about this southern country, a great majority would have said: Maradona, Tango, Steak and Leather. Not much more was known about our precious nation, but the four pillar synthesis was pretty accurate. If we were to change these nouns for adjectives we could easily say: Witty, Sensual, Delicious and Stylish… once again a great synthesis of our culture.
However, after 2001, the world had a wider entrance into the Argentine culture and society. And one of the things that captivated the most world wide travelers was the Argentine sense of style. Known as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires is a Mecca for fashion, style and avant-garde top notch design. Female travelers from different latitudes come to Ezeiza airport with empty suitcases to be filled up by the upbeat, posh and sophisticated local garments; business men and women are bonding with local producers and manufacturers to represent the Argentine firms in Europe and the US, for their superb sense of quality, style and price.
While the number of local firms of brilliant quality is broad, there’s one particular firm that has caught most of the people’s attention: that is Prune.
Specializing in luxury leather goods of great design, Prune opens its first shop in March 1999, after a long and profitable bond supplying some of the most reputable European brands with leather design goods.
From the very beginning Prune as a brand and through means of its stylish products makes an industry statement, thanks to its unique style in fashion, the quality of its products as well as for its unique trademark shops featuring a fabulous and modern architectural style of simplicity and clean lines.
From 1999 to our days, Prune has grown and expanded throughout Argentina, its neighboring countries and the rest of the world, by means of representatives, large exportations and franchising.
Our editor contacted Prune representatives directly to inquire about the new evolution lines the firm is currently working and developing. And while they acknowledge the fact that their products are world wide appreciated, and sought after, they will not yet work with representatives in the States and in Europe. However, there are several work-line projections consisting in export-import of large quantities.
The possibilities in this sense are growingly endless, and if our readers is interested in developing any of these, please contact us directly and we will assist you with detailed information and insightful data.
