Bilbao is a city of art, design, architecture and fantastic food and with all this creative energy buzzing around, it’s not surprising that there are some great independent fashion boutiques on offer. Whether you want the latest piece from a high-end designer label or something stylish and unique, Bilbao has a boutique for you.
If you’re looking for classic designer brands, then Veritas Boutique is the best place to head. Think Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Etro, Ermanno Scervino, Temperley London, Aquazzura, Alberta Ferrett and Polo Ralph Lauren.
This chic minimalist boutique is one of the best places to buy international fashion brands in Bilbao. The Closet opened in 2008 and was started by friends Ainhoa and Raquel who wanted to provide something different, offering brands that were not previously available in the city. In a room of white-washed stone walls and chunky wooden tables, pick your way through mostly American labels such as Rika, Iro, April/May, Twenty 8 Twelve, Paige and Gestuz. They also have a great selection of jewellery designs and footwear.
Not a clothes boutique, but a jewellery boutique, Perodri Joyeros started in 1961, producing its own exclusive designs. Today it’s one of the top jewellery designers in Spain with nine stores across the country, including in Madrid.
