When globetrotting, one thing we always make time for is shopping. While making a purchase when you find that perfect item is fulfilling, the thrill of discovering a shoppe that makes you stop in your tracks on its own merit is equally rewarding. Cue Hipshops, an online one stop shoppe for the crème de la crème in the world of retail, and one of our favorite resources before we embark on any journey. Self-described as ‘a smart compilation of concept stores from around the world‘, the team at Hipshops actively curates a collection of shoppes worldwide, each exemplifying the highest standards of premium (and preferably hard-to-find) merchandise, original and inspired interior design, and sharp brand identity and visual communication.

We’re thrilled to see some of our personal favorites on the Hipshops radar, including domestic crushes Creatures of Comfort and Sid Mashburn (for the captain in your life). As our must-see list grows, inclusive of the international shoppes we’ve highlighted below, we also have our mind set on scooping up the new magazine publication by the Hipshops team, available exclusively in Europe at a handful of stores and sure to be a shoppers paradise in bound literary form. Should you happen to spot the magazine in one of your local shoppes, or on a retail voyage of your own, we’d love to hear about it!
