Antonio Manuel

Antonio Manuel is a concept store that focuses on bringing together the best of international fashion in one spot. Stop in to visit their location in Faro and you’ll recognize names such as Armani, Hugo Boss, Michael Kors, and Ralph Lauren. As the store sells everything from evening wear (for men and women) through to shoes and purses, one stop may be all it takes to create an entirely full ensemble for spending a night out in the city. If you can’t make it in person, pay a virtual visit to the online store through their Facebook page.

Ana Sousa

Designer Ana Sousa knows what women want when it comes to fashion. Luckily her shops are all over Portugal, including across the Algarve in Albufeira, Faro, Olhão and Portimão (she has received some international attention too, with stores in South Africa). Find the store closest to you and browse through the jeans, t-shirts, dresses, and jackets. Fun and flirty, Ana’s fashion comes in all colors and styles.


Are you looking for a style that’s unique? Desigual means ‘unequal’ in English, and this store provides fittingly quirky and offbeat female fashion. Pieces range from city outfits to beachwear, so there’s something to suit most environments in the Algarve. Desigual opened in 1984 (their headquarters are in Barcelona) and made its way to Portugal, where it opened numerous stores including the Algarve outpost in Portimão.

Norte Moda

Shopping in the Algarve is always a unique experience

Step out in the bright Algarve sunlight with your best, well-dressed, foot forward after shopping at Norte Moda. There are four shops in the region, located in Tavira, Olhão, Albufeira, and Portimão. The store carries hot styles for men and women, from bathing suits to casual wear, through to fitness clothing and semi-formal dress (for women).


For sexy and sassy undergarments, lingerie and swimwear, Calzedonia is one of Portugal’s favorite Italian shops. As well as their standalone stores, most major shopping centers in the Algarve count Calzedonia among their number. While the brand primarily focuses on apparel for women, some stores sell pieces for men (like socks and boxers) and children too (mostly bathing suits, leggings, and socks).
