Marbella and shopping. Did two things ever sit together so naturally? It’s all in the heritage: the area was born out of the golden age of wealthy jet setters in the 50s. And there’s one thing the glamorous jet set of yesteryear (and present day, for that matter) know how to do – and that is spend it.

While just up the road, Puerto Banus is door-to-door designer boutiques, Marbella’s offering is slightly more varied and you have to work a little harder to find its most inviting independent shops.

To give you a bit of a helping hand, we’ve picked out a handful of the very best in our guide to Marbella shopping.

D.Oliva 

Calle Nueva, 9 Marbella, Malaga

D. Oliva Gourmet Shop

D.Oliva only stock the very finest produce from Andalucia. Owner David personally selects his wine from local vineyards and sells this alongside a mind-blowing choice and flavours of Spanish olive oil – try it with fresh pan de pueblo in the shop, or you can even book a full-blown wine and food pairing (book it as part of an Old Town Marbella tapas tour). It’s a great place to drop in to if you’re a food-lover.

Berdaguer

Not forgetting the men, of course… Berdaguer is one of the more traditional, high-quality men’s clothing shops in Marbella.

Shopping Nuevo Andalucia

Nina B 

Centro Comercial Centro Plaza, Avenida Manolete, 1, Local 39-40 (Nueva Andalucia)

A carefully selected range of clothing and accessories from largely Swedish designers fills this boutique in Nueva Andalucia. A range of unusual and sensibly priced brands such as Filippa K, Caterina Lucchi, Sixty Days and TCN make it well worth a visit.

Gunnels Fashion 

Centro Comercial Centro Plaza, Avenida Manolete, Local 18-19 (Nueva Andalucia)

gunnels fashion nueva andalucia

Born out of the need for unique, original pieces of clothing and accessories, Gunnels is a boho-chic, pretty, breath of fresh air. The owner is Swedish and is famed for her clogs (yes you heard correctly, clogs – just try them and you’ll see where we’re coming from). We love this boutique and always pop in when we’re in Nueva Andalucia. (Gunnelsfashionmarbella.com)

The Best Shopping Centre

Set back off the Carretera de Ojén and surrounded by palms, La Cañada makes for a great option if you’re wanting an afternoon away from the beach or the pool. There are a few designer names knocking about, but it’s largely the best of the Spanish high street that fills the space.

Adolfo Dominguez

Classic styles in good quality fabrics fill Adolfo Dominquez stores. Its collections are forever favourites that won’t go out of fashion. Think a sea of tan, creams, navy, black and a nod to fashionable colours. They stock men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, costume jewellery and sunglasses. 

Bimba y Lola

We love Bimba y Lola. Expect fresh designs that go from edgy, to classics with a twist. A relatively small collection is served up every season featuring bold colours, tailored trousers and dresses with shoes, bags and jewellery to compliment.

Purificacion Garcia

Men’s and women’s mid-range designer shop Purificacion Garcia always delights with flattering cuts, inventive designs and forever pieces.
