When it comes to a city as big and sprawling as Mexico City, it’s even more important to shop small and local. Below, seven independently-owned boutiques that stock everything you need to look and feel better.
Set aside an afternoon to explore this three-story 5,200-square-foot concept shop in Polanco. Owned by husband and wife Max and Monika Feldman, style-minded urbanites will flip for the well-curated roster of beloved brands, including Y-3, Vivienne Westwood, and Opening Ceremony. There’s a smart selection of pieces by up-and-coming designers, too.
This unique boutique is a collection of several stores all under one roof. You can pop by Namuh for intricate wood furnishings, grab some glazed, ceramic tableware at Trinitate, and score a pair of handsome, handmade shoes at Los Porfirios. Once you've shopped up an appetite, head to the Carlota & Emilia, the cafe, for some wine and light bites.
