Marbella is a tourist destination that encompasses different profiles. Some seek it for the Mediterranean Sea and its Beach Clubs, or those who prefer to explore its beautiful La Concha Mountain. There are those who know that it is an incredible golfing destination, with over twenty top golf courses; or those who come looking for the gastronomy and find everything from the local flavoured chiringuitos, to the famous Michelin-starred restaurants.

Of course, everyone knows that they will find microclimate and multiculturalism. But of all the tourist and residential offerings that Marbella has to offer, its strong point has always been, and always will be, that it is a luxury destination for the international elite. This is evidenced by the luxury brands that are established in the city. After Madrid’s Golden Mile, Marbella is home to the largest number of world-famous luxury brands in the whole of Spain.

Consider that this Costa del Sol resort became glamour queen in the middle of the last century, and still reigns more than seventy years later. Today, it even has several independently operating luxury icons. In addition to #Marbella itself as a recognised brand, the city has other VIP icons such as #MarbellaClub, #PuenteRomano or #MilladeOro. Of these, the one that shines the brightest is #PuertoBanús.

Banus concentrates the top luxury brands in Marbella

Banus is the epicentre of exclusivity. That is why the luxury brands are mainly located in its facilities. One hundred boutiques of the most sought-after firms in the luxury fashion sector coexist in the beautiful network of streets of the marina. Examples include Dior, Hermés, Dolce&Gabana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Elisabetta Franchi, Tom Ford, Max Mara, Bvlgari and Loewe to name but a few.

Those who want to satisfy their desires for haute couture, unique pieces of jewellery or watches, premium perfumes and cosmetics, or a variety of high-end products can do so just by strolling through Banus. They will enjoy, in turn, a sunny and beautiful harbour that resembles a small Andalusian village by the sea. Every year, the marina has become more and more successful in terms of visitor numbers. It has an annual average of more than five million visitors a year. This results in a turnover of several hundred million euros each season.

As there is such a wide range of high-end brands in Banus, we are only going to highlight a few of them today. We will focus on French fashion and accessories. We hope this post will be informative on what the top luxury brands in Marbella have to offer.

The most Oh La La town of Costa del Sol

There is nothing like going to Banus to see elegant shop windows with a Parisian touch. Louis Vuitton stands out as one of the French brands in the port. This fashion house is the queen of accessories, especially in its range of handbags. The Marbella shop also offers meticulously crafted clothing and travel items. We recommend calling ahead to book a visit to the beautiful shop.

Christian Dior is always at the forefront of world style and has highly coveted fashion items. In addition to Dior in the marina you can find a section of its beauty side within El Corte Inglés Puerto Banús. This multi-brand shopping centre is another paradise for lovers of luxury goods and is located very close to the port.

Hermés is another of the big French brands in Puerto Banus. Its philosophy shuns the ostentatious to focus on distinction and top-quality products. In its accessory’s options, scarves and ties are highly valued, but perfumes, leather goods and even details designed for the home also stand out.

Lacoste has a flagship garment: its polo shirt with the unmistakable crocodile. It is also a high-quality brand in sportswear. You can check it out in its boutique in Banus, where you might bump into elite sportsmen and women who live and train in the city. Another lesser known but very inspiring brand is Escales Paris. A French brand that adds a touch of Parisian chic to the Mediterranean lifestyle and uses eco-responsible materials for its collections.

The Chanel boutique in Marbella is not physically located in Puerto Banus, but we want to mention it because of its importance. Moreover, it is only a seven-minute drive from the Banus district. The shop occupies a privileged corner of the Marbella Club hotel complex and from there it spreads its influence and savoir-faire.
