As Portugas beach towel
inspiracoesportuguesas.pt \\\ €49,90
Created by friends Daniela Mateus and Fátima Gonçalves, the Inspirações Portuguesas brand is all about Portuguese roots, people and culture in which traditions are transferred to design and décor objects. Cushions, rugs, table cloths, napkins, candles and fabrics are all part of the Tiles, Plates and Roots collections. The Amália, Barcelos Rooster, Belém Tower and Saudade (longing) concepts become colourful, pop-art-style hooks. The bright beach towels emblazoned with witty Portuguese expressions are 50% cotton, 50% polyester. A great souvenir of summer in Portugal.

The quality of Portuguese footwear is no secret: in 2017 alone, two million pairs of shoes were exported to 152 countries. However, there are sophisticated surprises like Friendly Fire, a brand designed and manufactured in the northern town of Guimarães by the cheerful and irreverent Alexandra Castro and Rute Marques. The different pieces combine unlikely colours, materials and textures with quality, exclusivity and attention to detail. Galactic is the name of this bright and ultra-feminine spring-summer collection, as demonstrated by the shoes in the photo, which are made with satin and artificial rose details. As exuberant as galactic girls.
