Argentina’s Fashion Sector Pins Hopes on New Government
The country's textile and apparel producers are hoping the new government's economic policies will reinvigorate the sector, while luxury brands are eyeing Argentina for future expansion.
A key way to bolster the sector’s fortunes will come from resurrecting past export stars such as high-end pullovers or hoodies, premium wool sweaters or leather jackets, which once sold strongly overseas. Some names are getting ahead of the game, hoping to attract U.S. consumers. These include, for example, Gaucho-Buenos Aires, a high-end leather goods and ready-to-wear label that just launched online in the U.S. after debuting at New York Fashion Week. The firm is using Argentina’s cowboy, or “gaucho,” culture to make leather products with a contemporary twist blending Buenos Aires’ uniqueness and glamour.

Algodon Mansion, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Looking back over all the hotels I visited in 2016, Algodon Mansion is one that stands out. Located in Buenos Aires’ leafy Recoleta neighbourhood, this converted family mansion has just 10 rooms. Mine, the Ambassador Suite, was the one in which Argentine President Mauricio Macri honeymooned, and it was stunning in its understated elegance. The bathing suite might have been my favourite area – a true rain shower (by Hansgrohe, the best) in a marble and glass-enclosed steam room, plus a deep soaker bathtub and piles of the plushest towels.
