This way to Alegria: Spring in Cartagena

A short 5-hour flight from our HQ in New York City lies Cartagena, Colombia, a bright and soulful backdrop for our new spring collection (which is filled with styles perfect for enjoying those first sunny days).

Spring '19 in Cartagena

The second we stepped off the plane we were met with abundant sunshine and clear blue skies. After a quick 10-minute drive from the airport, we arrived in the Old City—La Ciudad Vieja. As we ventured down the vibrant and colorful streets we considered a single sentiment: alegria. The Spanish word for an immense feeling of joy and happiness.

Pro tip: Get lost! The most unassuming corners are often wonder-inducing.

Highlights: music at the iconic La Vitrola and traditional fish stew at Alma, mojitos everywhere and ceviche at the always-bustling La Cevicheria.

Shopping: St. Dom which stocks lots of local artisans as well as more well known international designers. Street vendors on every corner selling coco frio as refreshment from the heat, served right out of the shell.
