Shopping in Tel Aviv: five designer menswear shops
The value of the merchandise in boutique INN7 goes well beyond its monetary worth as can be seen in their super hip and cool clothing and their bold decisions like a strong preference for the color black. Rick Owens, Damir Doma and Black denim are just some of the beautiful and right brands you'll find there. One trip to INN7 and you'll never want to leave.
“How many people have you met today? What do they know about you? Most of them don’t know a thing. But everyone saw what you were wearing.” This is the inspiration behind Story fashion boutiques. Each of the seven shops scattered across Tel Aviv has an individual personality to it, yet there is one constant: carefully chosen brands that showcase cutting edge fashion from around the world for both genders. At Story, they travel the world to find clothes, shoes and accessories that create people who stretch and refine the language of fashion, invent new dialects and use it to convey their own unique message. With new brands like Nudie Jeans, Melissa, Fornarina and Bloch, unravel the story behind every scarf, pair of jeans, piece of leather and accessory.
CEO and founder Ilan Levy founded Showroom Tel Aviv just one year ago, yet the store has the reputation of a long running establishment. As the former CEO and owner of fashion chain Tag Woman, Levy knows a thing or two about fashion. Responsible for establishing and branding companies in Israel and abroad, Levy created Showroom Tel Aviv to insure his lasting influence on Israeli fashion culture. Showroom has unique and special contracts with many fashion companies acting as the sole dealer in Israel for many in-demand brands. Stop by Showroom for a stylish wardrobe update that suits both men and women.
