I Heart TLV Fashion

Tel Aviv, a bustling, beachside city known for its cafes, nightlife, museums, and beautiful dwellers has also quickly become a force to be reckoned in the fashion world. The sunny metropolis is flooded with trendy boutiques and unique designer stores. Anywhere from Kikar HaMedia, where any designer junkie can find an array of top brands, to Shenkin Street, a hipsters delight with a tempting buffet of clothes, Tel Aviv is thick with chic.

We’ll begin our shopping in the aforementioned and ever stylish Kikar ha Medina. In this picturesque and slightly uppity square fashionistas can find stores like Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren and Gucci alongside boutiques, like Amor, which pride themselves for dropping names like Balenciaga, Louboutin, and Dior. If your geared up for some serious spending, or you just want to enjoy a day of wishful thinking and window shopping Kikar Ha Medina is the place for you.

Moving on to a more budget friendly area we find ourselves in the adorably quaint Bazel neighborhood. Bazel’s narrow streets are filled with voguish newlyweds, their stylishly clad tots and shops filled with eye catching accessories. So after having a quick bite to eat at one of the many European style coffee shops go pick yourself up a funky leather bag at Daniella Lahavi or a one of a kind jewelry piece at Hagar Stat.

From Bazel stroll your way up to Dizengoff, a staple in the Tel Aviv fashion bubble. While walking along the busy street, that stretches from the northern seaport all the way to Rothchild Boulevard, you can’t help but stop in every shop! Dizengoff boasts a mixture of Israeli designer shops, like Yosef, whose collection has everything from wedding dresses to ready-to-wear pieces, and stores like Retro, which finds the perfects balance of up and coming designers, one of a kind pieces and European brand names like Nudie Jeans. If you’re a hardcore shopper this is the place to be!

After making your way through Dizengoff the next stop has be Shenkin. Once the “it” spot for artists, actors and writers, this small but glorious street has made a name for itself in the fashion world for the hipster crowd. With edgy Israeli designer shops like Banot and brand name boutiques, ChuCha, propped up along the path, anyone who wants to stand out everywhere else can come here to fit in. Shenkins unique vibe and trendy bunch makes it a veritable Greenwich Village in Tel Aviv.

Last stop (for now) is the oh so chic Neve Tzedek and the Tachana shopping areas. Packed with minimalistic boutiques that are treat not only for clothing lovers but also anyone who appreciates interior design. All the shops are tastefully put together with the upmost care and simple touches that’s it would be a shame to not go in and have a look but more importantly the casual elegance of the clothing and accessories that you’re bound to find here in stores like Charlie Paloma, make these shopping districts a must.

Style is the pulse of this city, always be prepared to be stopped on the street and have your picture taken by street wear photographer, lose yourself in one of the massive designer markets or a on a visit to the shuk in Yaffo leave with an amazing vintage jacket, fashion is everywhere and for the local Tel Avivian fashion is not just a trend in, it’s a way of life.
