Las Rozas Village Madrid

A few days ago I had the pleasure to visit Las Rozas Village in Madrid, one of the nine Villages, located in Europe’s favourite cities. It’s a luxury outlet center, home to more than 90 boutiques, from highstreet brands to luxury designers like Gucci, Versace, Missoni or the British superbrand Burberry . After visiting their Parisian village a year ago I was extremely happy to explore it in Madrid. What I loved the most was its charming architecture and a big terrace with an amazing view of the mountains, especially beautiful in the late afternoon, where I could have a cold drink after shopping. If you’re worried about hot temperatures in Madrid, especially in the summer, then I can promise it won’t be a big deal in the village. Each boutique has air conditioned inside, and outside you can try delicious icecream from Amorino to cool off.

But let’s get back to boutiques in Las Rozas Village. If you like Spanish brands, not necessairly these super popular highstreet brands which we all know but for example Bimba y Lola or Aristocrazy which is btw. my absolutely favourite jewellery brand of all times, then it’s a perfect place for you to buy great pieces in great prices all year round. It’s like sale season which never ends. Sounds good, right?! Apart from Spanish brands it’s worth to visit Furla ( I’m in love with this black mini tote which you can see on the pictures below) , Gucci, Loewe or some smaller cute stores with cotton tees or home accessories. You will love their products but also each boutique has an interesting and unique interior what makes your shopping experience more fun even if you’re not a big fan of shopping. After that you can eat traditional Spanish tapas or just a healthy green salad. And finally have a face massage in Orogold.

Yellow dress // Barcelona

Some more pictures we took with James in Barcelona. It felt like it was midsummer there, so I’m actually trying to swich back to ‘winter mood’ at the moment. On Sunday I’m flying to New York for fashion week! I’m super exited but scared at the same time. Snow and low temperatures are not my cup of tea. But I can’t complain! New York is always a good idea! If you have any tips, can recommend any cool spots for pictures or want to have a coffee/drink with me, let me know! Coming back to sunny Barcelona. I was wearing a yellow dress, Balenciaga boots and a furry bag, which I use as a pillow to take a nap on the plane : ) ) . I can’t say I love yellow, what’s more I don’t even like yellow. But this time, in Barcelona I decided to wear something bright and different than black/white like I usually wear. Hope you like it too. xx

Barcelona with Mango

Posted on February 1, 2014

 

I’ve just come back from amazing and sunny Barcelona, where I went together with Mango to see their show, and the new A/W 14 collection. Here, you can see some ‘diary’ photos we took together with James during our stay. It’s absolutely amazing how different is the winter in Spain than here in London or some other countries in Europe. When we arrived in Barcelona, the sky was blue, sun was shining bright and it was around 18 degrees. I couldn’t believe my luck; at the same time in Sweden or in Poland there is a lot of snow and it’s freezing cold. We were staying in the W hotel in Barcelona, my room was on the 17th floor with a view on the Mediterranean Sea. It looked faboulous and unreal.

We also had some time to explore the city. I will never have enough of all these beautiful spanish houses and architecture. I could photograph it literally all the time.

I had spent great time in Barcelona. Thank you Mango & Seat for having me!
