24 Hours In… Cartagena de Indias.
Slide Nr 7
12PM: Try Colombian Fashion On For Size – As you wander the city, you’ll find a great selection of jewellery (mainly emeralds), accessories and leather goods. Guayaberas, a style of breezy men’s shirt typical of the Caribbean, are also popular; we recommend visiting Ego, run by tailor Edgar Gómez Estévez whose guayaberas have been worn by the likes of Gabriel García Márquez and Barack Obama. Ladies, on the other hand, might try the boutique of Gabi Arenas, recognised as one of the country’s best leather goods designers, thanks to the upbeat Caribbean vibe of her hand-painted designs.
