Concierge.com's insider take:
Turkey's answer to Saks, this upscale department store can't be ignored, not least due to its vociferous citywide advertising campaign that has giant renditions of Kate Moss bidding Istanbullus to buy into big labels. With five locations in Istanbul, the most exemplary of which is probably the seven-story structure in Nişantaşi, Beymen houses a comprehensive showcase of top global designers and names in cosmetics and household accessories, in conjunction with its own fashion line. Don't expect any labels-for-less here, though: International brands will tend to be more expensive due to import taxes, so stick with local houses like Mavi Jeans.
