This Spanish fashion house (pronounced “lo-weh-vay”) defines itself as having an obsessive focus on craft and unmatched expertise with leather. Since 2013 the brand has operated under the creative direction of Jonathan Anderson and the label marks this as the start of its new chapter - embodying a bolder and more playful visual identity. One of the Paris Fashion Week 2023 highlights, Loewe are consistent leaders when it comes to the spring/summer handbag trends 2023 and we expect this popularity to continue with the autumn/winter fashion trends 2023, and if you buy one thing, make it the iconic Puzzle bag, introduced by Anderson in 2015, this now classic design is worn by the likes of Beyoncé.

Established in 1985 by designer Armando Lasauca, Massimo Dutti is a Spanish fabrics company specializing in cashmere and wool products and it’s well regarded for its refined spin on wardrobe essentials. Although originally aimed at men’s fashion, the brand jumped into the women’s market in 1995 and hasn’t looked back since. Expect high-quality knitwear, sleek separates, and pared-back accessories all in a chic color palette.

5. Stradivarius

Often described as Zara’s younger, cooler sister, Stradivarius is a Spanish clothing brand that is more affordable than its stylish sibling but slightly lesser known. Although it's aimed at a younger market, there are stylish staples for all ages as well as more trend-led buys. Perfect if you want to some of the newer styles without splashing the cash, the collection is guaranteed to inject some fun into your closet.

6. Zara

Undeniably Spain’s most popular store, Zara needs no introduction - but it wouldn’t be a roundup of Spanish clothing brands without this iconic fashion hero. Zara boasts everything from affordable basics to slightly more expensive trend-led pieces that look like they’ve stepped straight off the runway (its designer dupes will make you do a double take too). With killer accessories, we dare you to enter a Zara and not find something you like. Even Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, can’t resist a Zara purchase.
