The NOTEBOOK Madrid.comExpert facts from local expats since 2001
Indi and Cold

If you think you know the Salamanca area inside out, think again. We just found this little hidden gem of a Spanish brand, even though it's been around for about thirty years!
We like the natural fabrics, high-quality finishings, lovely soft autumn colors and attention to details. The shop on calle Lagasca is really worth a visit, you will be surprised by the many beautiful garments at accessible prices.


Espacio Malmö

This is a collaborative shop of Spanish and Portugese designers for all things unique! You will find vintage clothing, decorative items, jewelry and accessories. They also have a space for new designers to show and sell their pieces. This is a great place in Chueca to discover new music, fashion and art in an unforgettable setting.

Ese o Ese

These little shops have an excellent selection of up to date clothes and acessories. It is unlikely you will leave without buying a pair of boots, a scarf or a shirt. 


Very cool urban fashion. Fun prints and styles. They have a good kids selection too. There are stores all over town.


Pepita Pérez

This Spanish brand offers unique and fun designs at reasonable prices. Their stores are filled with pastel colors, bright flower designs, light fabrics and vintage touches. They have a wide variety of women's and girl's clothing, including many dresses with bright colors and elaborate patterns. The sandals, scarves and other accessories are also very feminine and nice.


Trendy designs and reasonable prices. Another Spanish fashion success story.


Massimo Dutti

The Massimo Dutti shops are part of the Zara empire. They have a more up-market collection: quality and finish are overall better than Zara.



The concept is simple: Zara sells trendy and up-to-date clothes (inspired by the “Haute-Couture” collections) at very affordable prices (in Spain prices are even 30% cheaper than abroad). The numerous shops that you’ll find in Madrid do not always stock the whole Zara range (women’s, men’s, young people’s, children’s...). The ranges on sale vary. Don’t limit yourself to just one shop!


Custo Barcelona

If you don’t know Custo T-shirts yet, you must absolutely visit this store. Custo is a Catalan designer who has achieved international success designing original T-shirts (sold all over the world and worn by great stars). A little bit expensive but definitely great!


Agatha Ruiz de la Prada

Originality and colour are the main concepts of this extraordinary designer who doesn’t limit herself to fashion design. She has launched a full stationery range, has started to design furniture and crockery and has many more plans for the future. You either love or hate her style but you will certainly not remain indifferent!
