La Comercial - Nice Shopping for Christmas Presents

bustier dress by Cristina Ponce de Leon
Look what you can do with your cheeseburger wrappings!!!

La Comercial de Villanueva is an interesting space full of imagination. Carefully selected objects for women, mothers and their daughters; clothes, accessories, books, candles, paintings, ceramic, furniture and much more... Besides its own brand, Casiopea, La Comercial offers national and foreign brands such as NIU, Les Petits Hauts de Paris and Bella Jones.

And the most interesting thing is the opportunity La Comercial provides to young designers and artists who show a promising talent. Two awesome and striking works by artist Cristina Ponce de León are shown at present. One is a bustier dress made out of cheeseburger wrappings and the other a dress made out of wood clothespins.

It deserves a visit, either for christmas shopping or just to admire the work of Cristina Ponce de León.

Patch - Menswear

patch menswear


Patch is a new menswear brand 100% Made in Spain, recently opened in Madrid in a street that I like very much, quiet and calm but very elegant: Blanca de Navarra 3.  In successive posts I will be reporting other interesting shops worth to be mentioned in that same street. You can say Patch has an English flavour but also traditionally Italian and American east coast. Nice special colours and unique elegant cuts. Bomber jackets, blazers in corduroy with original lining, gabardine pants or plaid shirts are examples of the wide range of products and accessories you can find there. Scott Schuman, from "the Sartorialist" recommends it!!!!!!
