It’s no secret that we routinely look to European women for style inspiration—and while French-girl everything might dominate the scene, there are many Spanish brands beloved by fashion devotees near and far. Here, we round up the chic labels native to Spain (in addition to iconic design houses like Balenciaga and Sybilla) that you should be shopping.
Madrid-based Loewe has seen a major resurgence in the last several seasons, thanks in part to their stand-out accessories. The Puzzle Bag (pictured above) in particular has become a resounding must-have for editors and street-style stars.
You might be surprised to learn that the popular and affordable Mango was founded in Barcelona. Since they offer an expansive collection of modern, trend-focused clothing and accessories, we're glad this mega-brand is readily available in the U.S.
For sculptural metal baubles, Spanish women turn to UNOde50. The Madrid-based brand, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, offers chunky statement pieces largely rendered in silver (though a gold collection, which we love, is also available).
Uterqüe is part of the Inditex group, a Spanish business entity which also owns Zara. Launched in 2008, the brand has distinct resemblances to its popular sister company—trend-driven pieces with sharp attention to styling and photo direction. As in, it's hard not to want everything on the website.
The reigning champion of espadrilles, a pair of Castañer shoes are essential for anyone who's partial to the woven style. While their classic wedge espadrille is timeless (and a perennial staple in our vacation wardrobes), they also offer a host of other footwear options, spanning from pumps to boots.
Bimba y Lola
Founded in 2005 by sisters Uxia and Maria Dominguez, Bimba y Lola focuses on luxury-feeling fashion items at a contemporary price point. Elegant silhouettes are punctuated by bright colors and prints, which makes it a shoo-in for women who seek to stand out.
