I went on a trip to Spain last summer. It was a real adventure. We lived near Barcelona and we went several times to the city. I really wanted to go to Madrid for shopping, too, but unfortunately, we could not do it, because we had a little time. If I went to Madrid, I certainly would visit El corte Ingles new Department Store at La Castellana because it is a fantastic place for a crazy shopper like me. Firstly, I mean Michael Kors boutique, of course :-) (my big love). In the meantime, I want to introduce you to them in a blog.
Spain´s leading Department Store dedicated to fashion, watches, jewellery and lifestyle. The widest selection of International Brands in one Center. Enjoy the confort of a complete luxury shopping experience in Madrid, including delicious dinning and restorative wellness treatments.
The pleasure of walking the streets of luxury in a newbuilding in Paseo de laCastellana, whic h brings together theworld´s topbrands in one unique location. Located in Madrid’s business and financial heart, the new El Corte Inglés store in Paseo de la Castellana has emerged as a model of innovation and modernity.
One of the largest and most unique stores in Europe, it occupies a large part of a 22-storey landmark building enclosed by a backlit cylinder. In this way architecture and art are placed at the service of customers to create experiences and fulfil dreams which are yet to find expression. In one single space, the new building offers visitors the opportunity to walk among the great fashion houses, access the leading brands of fine jewellery and watches, smell the aroma and sense the textures of the best perfumes and cosmetics, and enjoy a taste of the most exquisite gourmet products. The pleasure of walking the streets of luxury in this new building in Castellana is comparable to the experiences of the traveller when wandering along the Rue Faubourg in Paris, Regent Street in London or Fifth Avenue in New York, not only because of the variety of brands available or the dimension of the space in which they are to be found, but also because of the quality of what is on
El Corte Inglés in Castellana allows a unique experience which brings together top brands such as Cartier, Bottega Veneta, Bulgari, Dior, Gucci, Hermes, Jimmy Choo, Loewe, Louis Vuitton, Max
Mara, Miu Miu, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tod’s, Yves Saint Laurent, Carolina Herrera and Burberry. These stores, installed in a distinct and unique zone, each offer their
own ambience and decor.
In this environment, each brand displays the most coveted pieces and models in the field of luxury accessories. But in addition to fashion, El Corte Inglés in Castellana has a unique space where the most select and renowned brands of luxury watches and jewellery coexist in one place.
Some of these brands have their own shops, such as Bulgari, Cartier, Rolex, IWC, Panerai, Vertu, Blancpain, Tag Heuer and Omega. Renowned jewellers such as Aldao and Suarez have also been
installed, along with department store corners such as Pomellato and Dodó.
To this we need to add a multi-brand zone where it is possible to find jewellery pieces and collections by brands such as Fred, Boucheron, Chaumet, Chopard, Piaget, Carrera y Carrera, Damian, Yanes and Elena Carrera. The same applies to watches, since there is an exclusive space presenting the latest ideas and models of Jaquet Droz, Glashutte Original, Baume & Mercier, Maurice Lacroix, Corum, Perrelet, Frederique Constant, Piaget, L.U.C. de Chopard, Girard Perregaux, Pedro Izquierdo and Pitá.
