A brand new Zamalek boutique, Bottega 13 is a visually interesting place for fashion fixes.
It's no secret that there definitely won't be a shortage of underground fashion boutiques in Zamalek anytime soon. In fact, they seem to just miraculously spring up from the sidewalk, settling in between well-established shops like they've been around for eons. But, we here at Cairoscene are huge supporters of the fashion industry, which is why were a bit surprised when we stumbled on a Zamalek boutique that we hadn't heard of.
Bottega 13 is a traditional, old-styled boutique that offers contemporary and edgy fashion choices for your everyday Egyptian fashionistas. From neon prints to mixed and matched summer dresses, it's safe to say Bottega 13 caters to a wide range of eccentric tastes. Though you might not find your Guccis and your Lanvins, they stock a selection of edgy, urban streetwear brands like Free People and Dash Me - basically everything you need to stock up on before Sahel season, part deux. There's also a selection of cool footwear from strappy flat sandals to spiked silver sneakers, and a whole load of hipster iPhone cases to boot!
