SPFW, Fini---Time to Shop!

Chic has been so busy running to the Brazilian shows that there's been hardly a moment for that great old-fashioned tourist activity: shopping. Luckily, as a dedicated purveyor of chic to vous, we've managed to squeeze in a bit. What's not to be missed? On Sundays, a vintage market opens under the MASP (Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo), offering everything from traditional Brazilian jewelry---a friend picked up a silver bracelet linked together by figures of baianas, women from the Brazilian state of Bahia---to vintage gold cash registers and telescopes. Rua Oscar Freire is the 5th Avenue of Sao Paulo: a long street in a chic part of town lined with Brazilian designers like Osklen, Maria Bonita, Alexandre Birman (a Daily fave!), and of course, the Melissa and Havaianas flagships. There's Iguatemi, of course, the mega-mall with brands like Gucci, DvF, Tiffany, and Christian Louboutin. But high-fashion shopping in Sao Paulo is not complete without a trip to Daslu, a tucked away three-story maison with mini-boutiques of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Goyard, and more (although the best part may be the home department on the third floor or the chocolate bar, also on three). Now all you need to do is book a flight!
