Las Salesas is one of Madrid’s most alluring shopping districts. Little urban design shops where elegance and avant-garde aren’t at odds with the ordinary, sheltered from the invasion of giant retail chain stores. Concept stores for shopaholics, influencers, #igers and trendsetters… with a traditional twist.

Some of the most acclaimed young fashion designers have their boutiques in Las Salesas: Lemoniez (Calle de Argensola, 17), Ailanto (Calle de Orellana, 14; the firm owned by the Muñoz brothers, from Bilbao).

For current trends, multi-brand outlets or exclusive treats, you should head for Le Marché aux Puces (Calle de Fernando VI, 2), selling exquisite bags and footwear for both men and women; et… bang! (Calle de Pelayo, 66), offering leather goods handmade in Spain; Pinkoco (Calle de Piamonte, 15), specialising in beauty and lifestyle; the store of the designer Jorge Vázquez-Orellana, 12; or NAC -Genoa, 18- where in addition to clothing you can find various accessories such as jewelry, belts or handbags.

Concept Store and specialty shops

Moreover, Las Salesas is home to a high number of concept stores – that is, a shop that sells a carefully curated and unique selection of products that connect to an overarching theme. You can try, for instance, DO (Calle de Fernando VI, 13), for lovely items from international brands; Despacio Concept Store (Calle de Belén, 10), for unique bags and shoes, home décor items and gadgets; Gion (Calle del Barquillo, 18), for fashion and décor coming all the way from Japan; or González & González (Calle de Pelayo, 68), a curiosity shop for old-fashioned devices and designs, based on the philosophy that if something’s good, there’s no need to replace it. The Batavia shop -Mejía Lequerica, 2-, is a shop specialized in design furniture where they also carry out personalized decoration projects.

In Las Salesas you can also find an interesting array of specialist shops. Lumas (Calle del Barquillo, 23) is one of the best places in town for photo and graphic art hunters, offering real gems at affordable prices. Dai Chun Lin (Calle de San Lucas, 11) sells beauty products from China. The brand was established in 1628. At Cacto-Cacto (Calle de Fernando VI, 9) you can buy all sorts of cosy cacti, while Cacao Sampaka (Calle de Orellana, 4) is a haven for chocoholics. At Poncelet (Calle de Argensola, 27) you’ll find the finest cheese available in Madrid, which you can eat with the delicious artisan bread they make at Panod (Calle de Prim, 1), a new bakery that seeks to retrace of the origins of baking traditions. And if you’re a book lover, you should pay a visit to Antonio Machado (Calle de Fernando VI, 17) one of Madrid’s greatest bookshops. The Compañía Fantástica has its flagship store in the Salesas district which stands out for its original prints in its clothing designs.
