While shopping in Barcleona during the holidays I stumbled upon the coolest boutique called Le Studio, which is actually not only a boutique but the design studio for Lola Nomada. While I was running errands and shopping for other specific things that day I passed their shop and the beautiful curated collections of clothing immediately caught my eye. While Barcelona is filled with all the big name brands and typical shopping stores, I am much more interested in finding the Barcelona boutiques that offer more unique items.
Lola Nomada is a locally designed brand that was born right here in Barcelona. The two women behind the brand are Mayra Nor and Annabel Wiering. Mayra studied law in Germany, but has always had a big passion for fashion and branding. Annabel studied fashion management in Holland and has been working in the fashion industry for the last 12 years. Together with a small team in Barcelona they create the Lola Nomada collection.
“As fashion creatives with a love for the bohemian lifestyle inspired by the urban, independent and confident women around us, we felt encouraged to create a fashion concept where effortless designs meet Mediterranian Chic.”
While chatting with the sales girl she told me that many of the fabrics used for their designs come from France and Italy. In addition to the the Le Studio in the Barcelona they have a small workshop where they create their designs and the larger quantities are made in Portugal.
I fell in love with two shirts, the Sali Top for the fun collar and the Lina Top for the embroidered sleeves! All of the clothing is really well made and I loved so many of their skirts, but sadly I am just not a skirt girl.
I also loved their inspiration board they had hanging on the wall and this is what their clothing tags say: “A girl who wanders and a woman who dreams” – I wish I would have thought of that 😉
