Malta Shopping| Shop Till You Drop Your Bags At Our Boutique Hotel

  • Sep 5, 2016

Local designers are aplenty and craftsmanship is impeccable if you want to do some serious shopping in Malta

As a style blogger, I take every opportunity to people watch and shop where ever I am, so I can share content with my followers on what’s hot from every corner of the globe.

I didn’t expect much from Malta when it comes to shopping; the only link to fashion I could dig up was the Britain’s Next Top Model, Tiffany Pisani, that hailed from here a couple of years ago.

I should have known the place would have style though, Casa Ellul, our boutique hotel, located right in the heart of Malta’s capital, Valletta, certainly cut the mustard when it comes to furnishings, comforts and design. I thought I’d be happy for our long weekend here without having the need to stimulate my senses outside!

There’s as much care taken in dressing the rooms as A lister’s take to attend a fashion show front row!

Close to Casa Ellul, I discovered a local duo, Charles & Ron who have cleverly used the icons of the islands to embellish their fabrics for their collections.

Voluminous skirts and perfectly fitting shell tops with detailed necklines and crazy sleeves found their way into my luggage; I’m very happy to be a hanger for their work and can’t wait to see what’s in their next collection.

100m away is OhLaLa, a small boutique selling work from a young Italian designer, still only two or three pieces of each item, laden with bags from this quirky line made feel cool enough to hand out in the trendy Strait Street for lunch.

I did a bit more damage to my bank account and baggage allowance but the concierge at the hotel helped my find extra luggage to carry my purchases home.

I’ll certainly be back to stay at the super stylish Casa Ellul boutique hotel and I think you’ll find Malta featuring quite regularly on my humble musings on the world of fashion.
