Whilst away on a buying trip for AW15 in Barcelona we had a chat with Jesus and Marijo from Malahierba at their shop and showroom to find out a little more behind their brand
How did Malahierba begin? With work experiences in different areas of the fashion industry, Marijo and Jesus met whilst working for Camper and decided to collaborate and create their own fashion brand. Starting by producing samples and first exhibiting alongside two other small Spanish labels at the fashion trade fair Bread + Butter in Barcelona in January 2008 and then again in June 2008. The brand has come a long way since then and their new shop is now well established and other boutiques are starting to open up in the area too.
What's next for Malahierba? Always keen to promote Spanish manufacturing, all the garments are designed and manufactured in Spain using high quality fabrics with their own unique designs. They look to grow the label further with more stockists not only in Spain but worldwide. With publicity of the brand via bloggers and social media, watch out for future collaborations too.
Go visit their lovely shop, where you can find the whole Malahierba collection (including limited editions), accessories by "Sew a Song" and "Lucuix", porcelains by "Chichinabo" and Victoria shoes. All manufactured in Spain.
Bonavista 26, bajos
Open Monday to Saturday.
As we start to think about holidays, I though it was about time to showcase some favourite dresses for the summer. From day to evening, casual yet dressy here's our top 3 picks.
The maxi dress, always a holiday hit and looks great with wedges or sandals
The printed tunic dress - wear it with cropped leggings and baseball boots for a casual day look
The colour pop dress - this coral dress would look fab teamed with metallic heels and a funky clutch bag

White is the perfect summer go-to tone due to its lightness and elegance. This SS15 designer's collections featured more of a casual silhouette giving off an effortless, relaxed vibe. We love how Bora Aksu incorporated crochet into his collection combining it with lightweight fabrics for a fresh update of the all white outfit.
We love the all white everything look - minimal but sophisticated.
Wear this trend now by pairing a white sheer panelled t shirt with a white midi skirt for a sleek finish.
Or try a classic white shirt with a pair of jeans and contrasting pair of heels.
Finding stylish yet comfortable and fuss free workwear can sometimes be a struggle. Fighting against the weather and whether or not you can be bothered to make an effort on Monday morning.
We have selected a few of our favourite tops and shirts perfect for the office whether its teamed with black skinny trousers or a pencil skirt.
