Position Concept Store by Kling
Well established in Palma, the Position Concept Store was one the first boutiques in Spain to stock Issey Miyake, Comme des Garçons and Junya Watanabe. The boutique is moodily-lit and seductive, catering to both men and women, while the service provided by their staff is a cut-above – they generally hire stylists to work in-store. Brimming with fantastic (and often monochrome) clothes by the likes of Rik Owens, Rundholz and other cutting-edge, innovative brands, they also have an excellent range of accessories, including an impressive array of vintage Ray-Bans and sought-after Reinhard Plank handmade hats.

A key player in Palma’s menswear scene, La Principal’s sleek window display and immaculately-stylish interior make it a store that’s irresistible to enter – and it’s difficult to keep your wallet closed once you have. It boasts an exceptional range of selected brands such as Maison Kitsuné, Homecore, Riding High and Rains, as well as a great selection of the Mallorcan brand Mews (its leather and suede goods are made on the island, the brand being started by the owners of La Principal). The range of accessories is also particularly impressive, with Spanish label, Steve Mono, featuring heavily and shoe brands Spalwart, Novesta and Veja regularly on display.

Suite 13, Conscious & Sustainable Wear
Tucked away from the tourist hoards, but in a great location just off Plaza Mayor, is Suite 13 – an ethical fashion brand, selling clothes made with natural fabrics sourced responsibly from around the world and then tailored in small workshops in Barcelona. With stunning womenswear designs and some eye-catching prints, style is certainly not sacrificed for ethics, making it the first sustainable fashion store in Palma. A great place to shop for chic, understated separates and stylish shirt dresses in a glorious colour palette, with some items in one-of-a-kind fabric hand-painted by local artist Jaime Colorao. The Daphne multi-position dresses – which come in different lengths and can be worn in a variety of ways – are a fantastic buy and they also stock handbags made by Mallorcan brand Maravillas Bags.

With its cool contemporary interiors, polished concrete floors and neon sign hanging above the carefully curated clothes rails, Mãos wouldn’t look out of place in London or New York. Selling mostly menswear, but with select womenswear too, the store was started by three locals with a passion for Scandinavian and European design and young up-and-coming brands. It’s a relaxing and sociable space, with a Chesterfield sofa set amongst the rails and shelves displaying Danish brands Samsøe & Samsøe and Les Deux, and Barcelona’s Thinking Mu. They stock limited numbers of each item so be sure to move fast if you see something you like.

Slightly incongruous amongst the slew of high-street brands and tourist shops, Suivi is a welcome oasis of chic on Calle de San Miguel. A long narrow space with a pleasingly curated, colour-coded rail of clothes that runs the full length of the shop, this excellent womenswear store stocks the likes of Isabel Marant Étoile, Zadig & Voltaire, Filippa K and Ancient Greek Sandals. There are also a handful of small accessories, Comme des Garçons fragrances and particularly divine-smelling Cire Trudon candles.
