Látomás is a boutique clothing store chain in downtown Budapest, with each store carrying selective stock that is conscientiously handpicked by the staff.
The three Látomás stores in the city are all a mere 15 minutes walking distance from one another, found on Király utca, Dohány utca and Akácfa utca, the city's edgier fashion conscious areas, and just around the corner from trendy hangouts like Karavan Street Food market and Szimpla Kert.
The style of clothing that captures the interest of staff at Látomás and is selected to be stocked cannot be categorised as retro, classic, chic or avant-garde, as there are hints of all four. The Látomás style is a blend of pieces that carry vintage undertones into modern elegance, while incorporating the vision of local Hungarian designers and supporting their talent. What's even better, elegant boutique fashion usually comes with an eye watering price tag, but there's none of this pretentiousness here. The clothing here is reasonably priced and doesn't vary much from high-street brand prices, just in quality and commonness.
Another thing to note when planning to drop by a Látomás is not to assume that a visit to one of the stores gives you a complete picture of what they have to offer. Despite each store being one of the same family, one Látomás will carry distinct and separate stock from its sister shops, based on personal design preferences of the staff and also tone of the particular store, so it's worth a trip to all three if you're hoping to return from Budapest with a new gem for your wardrobe.
