CASTANER (51 Claudio Coelho St.)
Spain is the birthplace of classic espadrilles, but it was this shoe manufacturer who was able to achieve global success with a regional product.
Thanks to the collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent, who was just starting his career as a designer and whose innovative ideas were enthusiastically accepted by the public, these natural, environmentally friendly, comfortable shoes became incredibly popular. Today we can see Castañer shoes in the collections of magnificent fashion houses: Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Christian Louboutin
ARISTOCRAZY (Goya St., 27) a jewelry brand that has become a new trendsetter in jewelry design. An innovative concept combined with a heritage of Spanish roots makes Aristocrazy an exceptional brand. The founder of the brand, Juan Suárez, is the youngest representative of the 125 year old dynasty of jewelers, but in terms of talent he is not inferior to his famous ancestors.
In Spain, the name Suárez is equal to a quality mark in the jewelry world. It was in Suárez that the current king of Spain, Philip VI, bought a ring for his wife Leticia Ortiz.
