Best Shopping in Istanbul

By Chris |  April 4 2007

A shopping trip in Istanbul just wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Grand Bazaar.

With 58 covered streets, 4,000 shops, two mosques, two hamams and up to half a million visitors a day, the Grand Bazaar is one of the largest covered markets in the world. If your style is more designer shops, and a calmer shopping experience, then head to Adbi Ipekçi Street or high-end malls such as City’s Nişantaşi or Istinye Park. Özlem Süer House offers a unique concept shopping experience.

ÍSTIKLAL AVENUE

One of the most famous pedestrian streets in Istanbul and situated in the historic Beyoğlu district, Ístiklal Avenue has three million visitors a day at weekends.

Boutiques are housed in beautiful late Ottoman-era buildings and you’ll find a broad selection of music stores, galleries cinemas and restaurants.

ABDI IPEKÇI STREET

Adbi Ipekçi Street in the Şişli district is the most expensive shopping street in Turkey. Visitors will enjoy a variety of exclusive designer shops and chic restaurants serving international cuisine. Adbi Ipekçi Street is fast becoming a fashionable destination for New Year’s celebrations.

A LA TURCA

Erkal Aksoy’s A La Turca is an old townhouse located in Çukurcuma, a well-known shopping district for antiques.

Its four floors are bursting at the seams with quality vintage furniture, pottery, and elegant copper vases and feels more like a sumptuous private residence. Aksoy specializes in fine old kilims, carpets and antique textiles. Appointments to visit A La Turca should be booked in advance.

ATIL KUTOGLU

Turkish designer Atil Kutoglu has been presenting his collection at New York Fashion week since the year 2000.

In 2008 he opened a flagship store in the chic Nişantaşi district of Istanbul, close to Louis Vuitton and Cartier. The interior has been designed by Florence-based designer Claudio Nardi whose clients include the ‘who’s who’ of Italian fashion: Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Malo. Nardi’s use of contrasting wood and brass showcases clean minimalist design with a splash of Ottoman flamboyance. The Kutoglu collection ranges from ready-to-wear and knitwear to handbags and couture. High-end department store, Beymen, carries a Kutoglu line in several of its branches.

Özlem Süer House, located in the heart of the city in Nişantaşi in a three storey Art Nouveau building, offers a concept shopping experience. There are 10 different concept rooms, including one for hair dressing and makeup and a coffee corner. The aesthetic of the shop compliments the architecture, with its 1930s Art Deco armchairs, Greek-style nightstands and a magnificent vintage chandelier in the main showroom. In the garden there is a bistro where patrons can relax and recharge under the shade of magnolia trees.

GÖNÜL PAKSOY

Gönül Paksoy’s mantra is ‘timeless simplicity’. Inspired by Ottoman design, the designer uses old Ottoman fabrics, silk, linen and wool.

A trained chemist, Paksoy dyes her own fabrics with natural dyes. The imaginative designs are totally unique with sweeping fabrics, inspired by the whirling dervishes. There are silk slippers and tribal jewelry for women, and cufflinks for men. This is the shop to visit for one-of-a-kind authentic Turkish pieces.

MAVİ JEANS

Mavi, meaning blue, is the place to go for those elusive ‘perfect-fit’ jeans.

The flagship store in Istanbul has a full collection of jeans wear for young women and men, with unique Mediterranean designs and detailing. Mavi works with world famous designers, including Adriano Goldschmied who recently created a jeans collection for the brand.
