Should Fashion Stores Sell Cars?
- 18 february 2009
Etiqueta Negra, meaning ‘black label’ or ‘black tie,’ is the leader in the high-end clothing segment in Argentina. It was founded in 2003 by Federico Álvarez Castillo and Juan Cahen d´Anvers both passionate about cars…and polo (their team is currently ranked #1 in Argentina). The label has an alliance with the foundation of Juan Manuel Fangio, who many consider to be the greatest racing driver of all time. Federico has built an extensive collection of vintage cars, motorcycles and automotive memorabilia, much of which are put on display in their stores. The location on Lafayette (the first in the US) features a 1938 Alfa Romeo 158, which Fangio raced. Sadly, to facilitate easier shipping, the engine was left in Argentina.
