Outlet Premium, Brazil's first upscale outlet mall, opens near São Paulo - by Lea Dorf



Outlet Premium São Paulo, a new outlet shopping mall and the first of its kind in Brazil, has just opened near the city of Itu, about 1 hour away from São Paulo. The mall is part of the Outlet Premium chain, which has about 50 locations worldwide.



It will probably be a big hit: Brazilian love outlet centers and are frequent visitors in locations such as New York, Orlando and Las Vegas. It's a cultural thing: when Brazilians see discounted items, they just can't help it and usually buy furiously (yes, I'm included in this category).

The outlet will have more than 90 brands, which range from luxury ones such as Armani and Zegna to others like Diesel, Lacoste, Adidas and Nike. Many cool Brazilian brands will also be there: chic Trousseau (bed & bath), Track & Field (best local sportswear brand) and designer brands such as urban Ellus and Iodice, Carlos Miele's M. Officer, trendy and bohemian Isabela Capeto, Ricardo Almeida's suits and Zeferino's fashionable shoes.



The mall, located on the (excelent) Bandeirantes highway, will have open-air ambiance, inspired in the American centers. Discounts will vary between 40 e 80%.
Apart from Brazilian avid shoppers and "sacoleiras" (who buy tons of clothes to resell in their countryside towns), the mall will also attract families, since it's located next to two of Brazil's major theme parks: Hopi Hari e Wet'n Wild. An hotel from the Quality brand and a regular shopping mall, Shopping Serra Azul, are located in the same complex, and a resort is also planned.
