The international megabrand that made lingerie a household name and put Angels in suspender belts has made its first foray into the Polish market, opening up two boutiques last summer. Alas, we won’t find the gargantuan boutiques of New York City, filled to the brim with frills and lace,...

Shopping 12 October 2013 0

Known for wearable, feminine clothing, Kuczyńska’s inspirations come courtesy of a variety of bizarre, international influences. A past collection, entitled ‘Love Hotel’ was, for instance, inspired by the novel Dance, dance, dance by Japanese author Haruki Murakami; other collections, meanwhile, have been influenced by animals, origami, fragrances, Japanese Manga,...
Plac Trzech Krzyży 3/4
If Mokotowska represents the heartbeat of the Polish fashion scene, then Pl. Trzech Krzyży is more Warsaw’s wider, global conscience. From the offset, though, there’s something different about Plac Trzech Krzyży 3/4, something that separates it from the other world class boutiques that line the ‘square’. Found in a...
Insider’s top 5 at MoMA
Warsaw’s Museum of Modern Art doesn’t sound like the most promising way to spend an afternoon, yet it’s positively brilliant in its total peculiarities. And it’s free! See for yourself at Panska 3. Pan Guma by Pawel Althamer The swaying rubber form of Mr Guma – a deceased Praga...
Bar Studio
Created from the ashes of Chłodna 25, a cult café and cultural powerhouse closed due to its “disruptive” activities, Bar Studio is somewhat a continuation of the endeavor and somewhat not. Undoubtedly, the interiors are much more polished, located in the couloirs of the Palace of Culture and Science. The ascetic,...

The way to every little girl’s (and the odd boy’s) heart is a pink candy stripe interior with a sugar-coated bouquet laden with lollipops. Think Alice in Wonderland, step through the looking glass and imagine your child has just drank the growing potion; in Cukier Lukier all the furnishings...
Przekąski Zakąski
Over summer Gazeta Wyborcza published a list of ‘bars that changed Warsaw’. I don’t remember it offhand, but it was a pretty on-point collection of revolutionary haunts: Charlotte, Między Nami, Chłodna, etc. In that number, I remain pretty certain Przekąski Zakąski were in there as well – and why...

Leisure 23 September 2013 0

I’d taken one of the free survey classes at Yoga Republic about a year back and already knew it was the sort of place I was into – clean and tidy with a dash of bohemian style. Located in a charismatic, high-ceilinged prewar building in the center, it’s spacious...

Shopping 14 September 2013 0

Every few months or so, a new shop pops up and Bizuu is my absolute favourite so far. It’s not as intense about hi-fashion like the shops up the block, in fact, you won’t find any international designers here – but what you will find is an absolutely gorgeous...

At last, the famous LV monogrammed bags, wallets, suitcases and shoes have made their way to Poland. If you’ve been around Al. Jerozolimskie over the past month, you would have noticed that the upscale, ultra elegant Vitkac department store has become home to the Louis Vuitton shop (the huge...
