Madrid may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of European fashion capitals, but it couldn’t be trendier!
There are so many great places to go shopping in the Spanish capital for every style and budget. While we love checking out the high-end designer shops as much as the next fashionista, there’s something to be said for the smaller local boutiques where you can find truly one-of-a-kind items. Boutique shopping in Madrid is easier than ever, no matter what barrio you find yourself in. Here’s where to go to find something truly unforgettable.
When it comes to boutique shopping in Madrid, you can’t get much more unique than La Intrusa. With locations in both trendy Malasaña and charming Barrio de las Letras, the three friends who own the store are committed to working with lesser-known young designers who are just as talented as the big-name brands. Each product features spectacular attention to detail and runs in limited copies, so it’ll be nearly impossible to find someone else wearing the same thing. In addition to beautiful clothing and accessories, they also sell lovely home decor products and unique books.
