When you hear the word “shopping,” it has the power to instantly brighten your day and fill you with energy. Shopping proves to be a therapeutic process for many people when they feel upset or depressed. And, when traveling, no trip is complete without you going shopping; this is especially true in Portugal. The country is known to be one of the most affordable shopping destinations in Europe, which makes shopping there a true joy.
It’s a delight to introduce you to the brand in Porto called SCAR-ID. You can find it on N°253 Rua do Rosario. This shop is an independent design store that showcases developing Portuguese designers and businesses in fashion, jewellery, and accessories, in addition to furniture, product, and lighting design. The brand has a large white storefront in the Miguel Bombarda Neighbourhood of Porto Art District.
Locally Curated Collections
Scar ID fosters an environment of extreme exclusivity and ingenuity. They showcase the limited collections by Portuguese designers that place an emphasis on timelessness, high-quality materials, and originality. Each piece is a must-have addition to your wardrobe.
The brand’s goods complete your look with this vital finishing touch. SCAR-ID is the place to go for edgy and avant-garde items if you want to experiment and freshen your everyday style.
The brand explores and exhibits a collection of products with a classic touch that is expertly designed and manufactured in Portugal. It fulfils its vision for a modern urban lifestyle. They feature well-known names such as Daniela Barros, Susana Bettencourt, Filipe Fasca, Ricardo Andrez, and Estelita Mendonça, as well as newcomers such as Carla Pontes, Carlos Couto, and Claudia Garrido.
The enduring silhouettes can be worn as minimalist, graceful ensembles or enhanced with striking embellishments. Their summer collections feature bright and buoyant pieces, and their winter collections are full of warm neutral tones in cosy patterns.
The Origins of SCAR-ID
SCAR-ID was launched in December 2013 as a gallery store focusing on the communication and commercialisation of Portuguese design. It was founded by Visual Artist and Teacher Sílvia Pinto Costa and Architect and Writer André Ramos.
It represented both new and existing brands in the various design disciplines, based on the ideals of identity, exclusivity, and innovation (fashion, accessories, jewellery, furniture and home products). Today, the store is a hybrid of a boutique and a gallery, presenting a carefully curated selection of small collections, limited editions, and unique pieces of worldwide design.
