"Stylish retro"

"Top 10 Chiado shops. Traditionally Lisbon's most sophisticated shopping district, the Chiado neighbourhood has taken on new life in recent years as rather more contemporary stores selling unusual fashion and design goods have opened up here. As a result, this one staid area is putting up stiff competition to the Bairro Alto. Here we pick out some of the area's best shops for browsing and buying.(...)

A Vida Portuguesa. One of Lisbon's most unusual and successful shops, "The Portuguese Life" has locals cooing over fondly-remembered Portuguese brands of everything from toys to toiletries. Their stylish retro packaging charms foreign visitors, too. Business is carried on in an atmospheric setting: what was once the storeroom of an old perfumery, complete with original wooden floor, beams and display cases. Rua Anchieta 11 (21 346 5073/www.avidaportuguesa.com). Open 10am-8pm Mon-Sat." Time Out Lisbon for Visitors, 2011.
