Bossini: Moderately-Priced Hong Kong Fashion Brand in Nasr City
Situated on the constantly busy Abbas El Akkad Street in Nasr City, Bossini is a two-storey shop that offers clothes for all the whole family at extremely moderate prices. The ground floor stocks ladies’ wear while the upper floor carries men’s and kids’ wear.

Visiting Bossini on an early Friday morning meant that we were the only shoppers there and that the sales attendants had nothing better to do than to shower us with questions about our needs. Bossini is a small shop and the five sales attendants present at the time of our visit easily lent the shop an overcrowded feel.

Based on our experience of Bossini branches across the Middle East, we expected its outlet in Nasr City to offer apparel that was not only reasonable-priced but fashionable as well. However, a quick look around revealed that the shop was sadly not going to live up to our expectations.
  
Unlike many of Cairo’s other shopping venues, Bossini offers clothes that are great value for money. However, while Bossini’s clothes come at good prices, they don’t necessarily come in the most fashionable of designs.

A basic black shirt was priced at 230 LE and a polka-dotted, buttoned-up pullover sold for 280 LE. Pleather jackets were also available in abundance but most looked a little cheap. The pick of the bunch, in a camel-beige, was priced at 670 LE. Bossini also has a collection of colourful cardigans, starting at 280 LE.

A separate section of the shop carried summer clothes with massive discounts. A colourful knee-length summer dress sold for 100 LE instead of 180 LE while a simple, striped dress was priced at 90 LE. 

You can also find basic cotton shirts in black, white, beige, navy blue and other neutral colours, starting at 65 LE. These shirts were available in a variety of sizes starting at XS. Bossini also stocks maxi skirts (around 150 LE) and a strange selection of outdated, flowing, denim skirts. You can also find a limited collection of bags.

While you might not go berserk over Bossini’s clothes, the shop provides a hit-and-miss shopping experience, so it never hurts to have a look around,
– especially if you’re on the lookout for a few wallet-friendly wardrobe staples.
