4 out of 5 stars

Inside this magnificent three-story house, which dates back to the '40s, you'll find a wide variety of products ranging from handmade shawls, aromatherapy items, mobile accessories, dog clothes and exclusive brands from Mexican and international designers.

Monika Biringer and Max Feldman founded this shop in 2010 with the aim to promote the work of authentic and innovative Mexican designers. Almost 60% of the products they have on display are by Mexican designers and manufactures.

This is the only shop in Latin America that stocks Vivienne Westwood. An entire room of the house is dedicated exclusively to the legendary British designer whose wacky clothes, bags and shoes, made of plastic and other materials, have revolutionized the world of fashion.

Other brands they stock are Comme des Garçons, a large collection of MYKITA glasses, Melissa, Malafacha, Sperry Top-siders and Supra, plus furniture, paintings and sculptures of artists like Alan Petrov. They also have a wide range of jewelry by desingers such as Alan K. Thau.

They also have an interesting selection of music; from Indonesian folk music to African rhythms to electronic and experimental indie music such as Animal Collective.

In another area of the house you will find games and even kitchen utensils and there is even a toy section where you will find brands like Funko Pop!; there are also Mexican-made toys, fabrics and patterns and dolls of Frida Kahlo. In addition, there are independent brands and wooden toys such as The Gorilla, Hanno Jr. and Cubebot, which are more suitable to be played with.
