Croatians like good design, but given their general standard of living it is indeed not irrelevant how much they have to pay for fashionable clothes, shoes and accessories. Therefore, it is no wonder that there are several outlets located close to Zagreb and one of the best-known is the one found in Sesvete called Designer Outlet Croatia.
The shopping centre is a joint venture between the Ikea Centers company and Mutschler Outlet Holding AG from Switzerland. The two companies already co-operate in the Designer Outlet Algarve project in Portugal. Both the Croatian and the Portuguese outlets are managed by a consulting company from Austria, ROS Retail Outlet Shopping, one of the leading European outlet managers.
For many, time spent shopping in outlets where prices are not too high is the time spent best.
The outlet boasts over 100 prestigious brands, including Armani Exchange, Croata, Pepe Jeans, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, Converse, Yamamay, XYT, Gerry Weber, Liscu, Desigual, Barbolini, Under Armor… While looking for a deal, shoppers pass by the replica of Dubrovnik’s city tower and something which is supposed to look like Dalmatian streets. There is also the Lotrščak tower, a piece of Zagreb’s Upper Town…
A few days ago, a group of journalists and Croatian celebrities and influencers was invited to visit the outlet. The mini-tour was joined by such well-known personalities such as actress Sementa Rajhard, influencer Rita Rumora and well-known bloggers from outside of Croatia, Tesa Jurjašević from Ljubljana and Azra Hajdar from Mostar.
For a more straightforward shopping trip, there is a direct bus line from the Savski Most terminal in Zagreb that stops at key locations in the city.
