Spain may be less historically renowned for its contribution to fashion than its neighbours Italy or France, but that isn't to say it's not worthy of the same level of attention. In fact, the sun-soaked Mediterranean nation is fast making a name for itself as a leader in contemporary menswear, responsible for producing some of the most exciting labels in recent years. To get you up to speed, we've pulled together an edit of the best Spanish brands making waves at the moment...
The best Spanish brands to shop in 2023
With a belief that fair fashion is possible, Barcelona-based brand Brava Fabrics creates sustainable clothing for men and women, using premium fabrics and innovative manufacturing techniques that don't cost the earth.
Organic cotton, ECOVERO viscose, recycled wool and recycled polyester are some of the key eco-friendly fabrics used to create everything from classic tees to winter-ready outerwear. Expect relaxed silhouettes and playful colour palettes.
Another Barcelona-born brand, Tropicfeel creates high-performance footwear and apparel that's made to tackle any weather and terrain, from craggy mountains to sandy beaches.
Sustainability permeates the Tropicfeel design language and is embedded into every stage of production. Only eco-friendly recycled and organic materials are used and the strictest of human labour and animal welfare policies are in place. Tropicfeel is also Climate Neutral Certified.
Meller is one of our favourite Spanish brands for premium eyewear and watches. The Barcelona-based brand's design approach references its home city's exuberant, colourful street fashions while paying homage to classic silhouettes and timeless design. In just seven years, Meller's collections have won an army of fans worldwide, eager for the company's next fashion-first drops.
With sustainability at its core, Meller creates its fashion-forward sunglasses from ethical and durable materials including recycled bottles, premium acetate and environmentally friendly metal. Eyewear and watches alike are made to last, guaranteeing accessories that you'll cherish for years.
In the three years since its inception, Neutrale has made a name for itself as a fail-safe go-to for premium loungewear staples that look great and go easy on the earth. The Madrid-based label never fails to capture out attention with its offering of ultra comfortable hoodies, crewneck sweaters, tees and sweatpants, all crafted using the latest eco innovations, technologies and sustainable practices.
Neutrale looks to its Mediterranean roots to inform its simple, laidback aesthetic – think soft, nature-inspired colour palettes and relaxed silhouettes. Its pieces are high quality wardrobe essentials that you'll reach for time and again – wear them lounging around at home or as part of a casual weekend look with your favourite trainers and go-to jeans.
