The Argentinian brand brings luxe leather accessories and high-end apparel to its first stateside store. Opened in December 2008, the sprawling, two-story boutique is immaculately decorated, with upper-crust themes of antique luxury cars, lawn sports, and polo that evoke Ralph Lauren. A cherry-red race car is parked near the register, and oversize black-and-white photos papering the walls depict a steering wheel and a polo jockey. The selection stresses menswearówool suits, pima cotton button-downs, dapper blazers with elbow patches, casual polo jerseysóbut a smaller selection of women’s clothing includes skinny white jeans, cashmere knits, and black leather vests. The lush materials stay true to the brand’s South American roots: The scent of leather from belts, shoes, and jackets pervades the store, and dark piles of Argentinean denim top weathered tables. At street-level, tall shelves lining the walls are set with masculine vintage ephemera, from tarnished trophies and leather trunks to oil jugs and wagon wheels. Downstairs, horse saddles perch on the arms of a worn leather couch in front of rows of ankle boots and dress shoes, and croquet mallets lean in the corner.
