Espacio Malmö is a collaborative shop space in Chueca, just off the Fuencarral, the neighbourhood’s main shopping artery. However, contrary to the brands present there, you’re unlikely to have heard of any of the guys selling here.

The place may be named after a Swedish town but, unless you count the wooden display boxes, there’s little to nothing Nordic about it: This is all about local talent, with two dozen or so independent designers from Spain and Portugal using the space to showcase their work and creative visions.

While it might be a little challenging to find suitable occasions for much of the mens and womenswear sold, many of the accessories, illustrations and pieces of art make great gifts for someone special – or yourself. In addition, there’s a small gallery space used for exhibitions, workshops and vintage jumble sales. Here, even if you don’t buy, you usually still get a little.
