forget paris

UPDATE: well, certainly not to diss paris, but we only said to forget it because what's in paris is also in madrid (see above). the last few years have seen the opening of every major luxury label in madrid (and yes, even carrefour, the world's no. 2 retailer, next to wal-mart), most of them located at barrio salamanca, a posh neighborhood, which also includes the likes of dolce & gabbana, jimmy choo, bottega veneta, bulgari, gucci, prada, versace, and soon, manolo blahnik (what? the spanish shoe designer is not available in spain?? apparently not. all part of a marketing ploy, my dear...)
