Tel Aviv Designer Boutiques, Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv
Israel
Concierge.com's insider take:

Although Tel Aviv still lacks a single standout global retail brand, areas such as Gan HaHashmal and Florentine are emerging as the city's "indie" fashion and design hub. Gan HaHashmal, which means "electric garden" in Hebrew, is named for its location close to Israel's first power station. Once Tel Aviv's Red Light zone, it's now the city's version of Manhattan's Meatpacking District, with cutting-edge clothiers and accessories designers such as Mishi (10 Nehama Street; 972 3 682 9615; mishi-design.com) and Kisim (8 HaHashmal Street; 972 3 560 4890; kisim.com) for leather goods, Paula Bianco (12 Harakevet Street; 972 3 68 50171; www.paulabianco.biz) for Art Deco–inspired jewelry, and Nona Elga (12 Barzilay Street; 972 3 560 1257) and Sharon Brunsher (12 Harakevet Street; 972 3 560 4834; www.brunsher.com) for featherweight, versatile womenswear. The shops in neighboring Florentine range from small-scale spice mongers on the western end to furniture and home-accessories boutiques further east. Furniture maker Kastiel (36 Alfasi Street; 972 3 683 6334; www.kastiel.com) has debuted a 50,000-square-foot white-on-white showroom melding a restored Ottoman-era corral and a 1950s warehouse; the company's modern furniture shares space with pieces by artists working in studios up above. Just down the street, past tiny carpentry workshops and the occasional auto garage, luxe bedding firm B. Knit (34 Ben Atar Street; 972 3 518 1138; www.bknit.com)—which once supplied Donna Karan—has an small, well-stocked outlet selling stylish sheets, duvet covers, and a clothing line. Also worth a visit is tiny olive oil boutique Olia, (73 Frishman Street; 972 3 522 3235; www.olia.co.il) near central Rabin Square, which sells organic Israeli olive oils for the kitchen and olive oil soaps and scrubs for the bath.
