Malaga is home to some fantastic fashion boutiques where you can buy shoes, accessories and a range of clothing styles from some of Spain’s top designers. Even better, many are located in the city’s beautiful old town and along a promenade in the stunning, recently-renovated port. Here are the places every fashion-lover needs on their itinerary when visiting Malaga.

1. Maitina's


Maitina’s is one of the friendliest fashion boutiques in Malaga: a free cup of coffee is provided for browsers as well as a stick of lip balm bearing the shop’s name. The boutique is relatively new to the city’s shopping scene, having been opened last year by an entrepreneur who was previously living in Los Angeles. As a result, the style on offer here is not tradtionally Spanish, but more international and modern. Maitina’s is located well away from Malaga’s shopping district in the working barrio of El Perchel, one of the city’s oldest quarters, meaning you can enjoy shopping here in a tourist-free zone.

2. Intropia

Located on the largest and most attractive square in Malaga’s old town, Intropia offers smart-casual attire for women and a good range of accessories as well as garments for special occasions. Prices aren’t what you’d call cheap, but then you are buying items by some notable Spanish designers, which are displayed in a bright interior presided over by helpful – and well-dressed – staff. Its premium situation on Plaza de la Constitución means you’re ideally placed to stop in at some of Malaga’s best tapas bars if you work up a thirst whilst shopping.

3. Athénée


One of the most popular stores among Malagueño fashion-lovers, this classy boutique is known for the range and quality of its clothing and for the friendliness of the proprietor, Patricia. Athénée is particularly good for chic, elegant evening dresses and other items of clothing for smart events. Just down the street from Intropia and the beautiful Plaza de la Constitución, the shop occupies a site in the heart of Malaga’s fashionable shopping district.

4. Calle Marques de Larios

No article about the smartest fashion outlets in Malaga would be complete without mention of the old town’s grandest and most spacious street. Feeling more like a Parisian boulevard than any other thoroughfare you’re likely to come across in Andalusia, Calle Larios (as it’s known to locals) is lined with super-smart fashion boutiques and the city’s best shoe shops. You can buy everything on Larios – if you’re not on a budget of any kind, that is – but the street is really a heaven for shoe lovers, being home to plush outlets of Spanish designers such as Nicolá and Antonio Parriego.

5. Veganized

Market, Shop, Store

With the possible exception of bohemian Granada, a shop that bills itself as selling “non-toxic fashion” would seem bizarrely out of place in any other big Andalusian city. As the tagline suggests, this trendy little boutique is all about clothing that doesn’t harm the environment. Veganized sells clothing for men, women and children from a range of ecological, sustainable designers, such as market leaders Wear Your Waste, Ethletic and Manifesto Eco.

6. Paseo del Muelle Uno


Malaga’s recently-renovated port area is now one of the city’s most attractive public spaces and, happily, also one of the best places to shop. Running along the eastern flank of the port down to the Malagueta beach is Muelle Uno, a spacious walkway lined with fashion boutiques, bars and restaurants. As you browse you can watch the giant cruise liners come and go on their voyages around the Mediterranean and when you fancy refreshment just grab a table on one of the promenade’s sun-drenched terraces. There is also the beautiful ‘Palm Garden of Surprises’ promenade to stroll along after you’ve finished raiding Muelle Uno’s boutiques.
