The Lower East Side comes to La Ribera/El Born.

Loisaida (or Lower East Side) was one of my favorites for interior design today. Everything inside had been placed with intention, yet made to look slightly haphazard and antique-y. The clothing store (for both men and women) was in a space whose brick had been exposed and whose displays were great; sweaters were folded next to an old typewriter, a 1970s record player sat next to socks, business cards were placed in a long piece of carved wood with slots, the letters that made up the store’s name were laid on the floor at the foot of a coat rack showing off a great pair of pants and shirt. This last photo of the outdoor banner literally has a piece of denim fabric stitched to it; not just a design printed on!
