Apart from history, gastronomy and the sunny weather of the Spanish capital, Madrid is a mosaic of cultures, ideas and styles that make it the perfect breeding ground to create some art. Many amazing talents are shaking up fashion with their strong and envisioning concepts, so here we have made for you a selection of Top 4 designers that have captivated us.
Located in Malasaña, the centre of indie Madrid, peSeta designs clothes for both men and women wanting to stand out from the crowd but remaining casual and elegant.
Dresses with daring prints, colourful coats, crazy bow ties and the iconic bag-handbag will blow your mind the minute you enter the shop. The designs and prints are almost unique, most of them created by well-known artists.
PeSeta is very committed with the environment and, guess what? It makes collaborations with great designers as Marc Jacobs, Isabella Capeto and even some museums!
