An independent boutique specializing in shoes and clothing, Magrathea has a huge selection of niche and high-end pieces from both Mexican and international brands and designers. Special edition pieces can be picked up with ease here, such as limited edition Nikes and even collaborations done with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld. However, it is worth a visit even if you’re looking for something a little more affordable, as they also stock newer, up-and-coming brands at more reasonable prices.
