Tel Aviv: Shop ‘Til You Drop
While wandering around Tel Aviv, it’s easy to notice how many boutiques and speciality stores the city has to offer. A culture of design meets a start-up and business savvy environment to make Tel Aviv the perfect place for small businesses and fashion houses to thrive. Sampling these stores will give you an inside perspective into the Tel Avivian mindset, and of course, allow you to take a piece of it home for yourself.
There’s no denying that Tel Aviv has a unique style that combines luxury with casual, made with really high-quality materials. This idea is what drives local Israeli design houses like Getrud, Tres & Vas, and Maya Bash, who commit to maintaining the Tel Aviv style through their own one-of-a-kind interpretations. For classic Italian design mixed with modern street wear, Doron Ashkenazi is a must when it comes to local menswear. But if you’re looking for a store that has an amazing selection of both garments and accessories chosen carefully from a variety of brands, Boutique 5 and Shine are made for you.Levontin St 19, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
In Tel Aviv, kids get just as much attention in terms of shopping as adults. Being a progressive city means pushing the envelope for children’s garments and toys, and Tel Aviv really delivers. Combining basic colors with stellar designs, Nununu dresses children from birth to 14 years old, and is a brand known internationally and beloved by its large celebrity clientele. And when it comes to toys, Tommy & Annika offers a magical experience with original toys that completely break the status quo.Kiryat Shaul St 28, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
