La Moda

When it comes to la moda, Uruguay does not exactly stand out... However some local brands do produce exquisite items.
Ever lusted after Lutz & Patmos's luxurious knits? The super fine wool they use is actually shorn off Uruguayan sheep. The same kinds of materials are used at Manos de Uruguay, a brand that turns 40 this year. Don't you just love that single-button cardigan with those shorts? Their kids' stuff, including pointy striped hats and colorful cardigans (pictured), are also to die for.
I may shop there before I leave - you have to stimulate the local economy, what can I say...
But Uruguay is even more famous for its leather. Spoiling me in typical abuela style, my grandma just bought me a pair of classic pumps at Pasqualini... They are exquisitely made, comfortable and so shiny! I can't wait to wear them in Montevideo or Paris.

oooooh! Lovely shoes! Could I kindly get a nibble? I love new leather shoes. The pricier the better.

Dear Toacito, I am afraid these shoes would look better un-gnawed on, as much as I love indulging you. Now be good and I'll bring you back a churro.
