1. Mokotowska Street

Shop

From beautiful boutiques of Polish fashion designers Ania Kuczynska, Robert Kupisz, LeBrand and Blessus x Michael Hekmat, to the Mo61 Perfume Lab (where you can concoct your own fragrance) and the Lilou custom jewellery flagship, the fashionable Mokotowska Street is one of the city’s best shopping addresses. When in need of a snack, grab a delicious pastry from one of the city’s best patisseries (Lukullus or Slodki…Slony) or indulge in a glass of wine at the popular wine bar Ale Wino.

This sleek department store is Warsaw’s prime luxury shopping destination. Although predominantly dedicated to international brands like Louis Vuitton, Comme des Garcons, Tomas Maier and Sonia Rykiel, it also stocks a number of Polish brands such as Krakow-based streetwear label MISBHV and unique product collaborations such as Vetements x Vitkac (black hoodie with Polish anthem printed on the back). If you get hungry, head to the Concept 13 restaurant on the top floor offering great views of the city.

5. Pan tu nie stał

Shop

Founded in Łódź (one of Poland’s largest cities, located an hour away from Warsaw), Pan tu nie stal literally means “you didn’t stand here, Sir” and references a communist custom of queuing in stores (when not much was available to buy). The brand’s heavily graphic products including clothing, homeware and accessories are inspired by Polish style and industrial design from 1960s until 1980s. Many of them feature bold typographic slogans presenting a humorous and ironic take on Polish reality of the past decades.
