No 4. Le marché aux puces

Only a stone throw from Do Design, this local designer has found probably one of the most special retail location we have seen in a while!

Set in an old bookstore space, this designs of Armin Hildebrandt really come alive. Surrounded by darkened old teak shelvings and bookshelf ladders the colorful designs really come to life. The old handcrafted fittings act the perfect respectful backdrop for the luxurious designs.

As much as we love Armin Hildebrandt’s designer boutique it does make us dream about the times when bookstores really looked like this, filled with stories and magic and myths.

No 5. Sivasdescalzo

Alert sneaker freaks! This modern concepts store is a definite pitstop for all streetwear and sneaker lovers. Situated just behind the Tribunal metro station this urban design sanctuary offers all the must-haves in footwear and apparel from all the top global brands have to offer.

The interior is a well-thought combination of rough and sleep, matt and shiny, monotone and colour all in perfect balance. Despite the use of such broad variety of materials and ideas, the store design creates a perfectly calm backdrop for its urban fashion masterpieces.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
