The historic cityscape of Madrid sits with somewhat of a time barrier running horizontally across it's centre. On the street level you have the current, modern day retail environment bustling with crowds of shoppers. But just 20 feet above head height you’re treated to miles of varied, classic Spanish architecture which still has a very strong presence within the cities identity. Modern glass art galleries sit comfortably opposite the beautiful, sprawling Retiro Park full of trees, runners and dog walkers. 

Back at the end of March we set foot into Spain for the first time, locating our flagship Madrid store just off from one of the city’s busiest retail destinations, Gran Via. After letting the staff settle in for the first month, we took the journey back over to find out about some of their favourite things to do in the surrounding area, and take a look at their favourite products currently available in store.

Madrid is the most friendly and welcoming city I've ever known (I'm not just saying that because it's my home!) The weather is really sunny too and people love to live in the streets. Any interesting things to get up to in the local area? The Malasaña neighbourhood is like Madrids take on Soho, full of interesting shops, bars, and galleries. You're always discovering new places and it's nice to talk a walk around the different narrow streets. Where would you recommend eating in Madrid?

Adidas Ultra Boost, Clarks Wallabee's and the Saucony DXN Runner from the Bermuda Pack. Any musical recommendations you've been listening to? I'm a music lover and I'm always discovering new styles and names. I never stop listening to Post-Hardcore and Alternative-Rock bands from the 90's, like At The Drive In, Sunny Day Real Estate, Fugazi, Ride, etc. One of my favourite band of all times is Mogwai but I'm afraid they're a bit too loud to play in the store player!

Any hidden talents we should know about? I've been learning the guitar for the last 6 months, it's never to late to learn a new hobby that you're in love with.
