The final stop on our Global Traveller tour takes us to the charming Andalusian city. Here, our Creative Director of Womenswear, Sheila McKain-Waid, tells us how it inspired our new arrivals...

Metropol Parasol

“The mesh-like structure and curved shape of the Metropol Parasol inspired the scalloped hems on our new lace pieces”

“Our blurred take on the polka dot – a Seville style signature – reflects the fast pace of this vibrant city”

Corral del Rey

Where to Stay: Corral del Rey

You’ll find this intimate 13-room hotel hidden down a narrow, cobbled street in Seville’s labyrinthine old quarter. Lovingly restored from a 17th-century casa palacio (Spain’s answer to a traditional townhouse), it strikes just the right balance between the old and the new. Think original wood-beamed ceilings and medieval iron-studded doors sitting happily alongside marshmallow-soft beds and contemporary artwork by local artists. Head up to the rooftop terrace to bathe in the heat, cool off in the plunge pool or sip on a sundowner ‒ all while looking out on stunning panoramic views over the city.

Alcázar Palace

Where to Visit: Alcázar Palace

History buffs, royalists, Game of Thrones fans: there’s something for everyone at the Alcázar. Originally built as a Moorish fort in 913, this magnificent palace was claimed by Ferdinand III of Castile in 1248 and has served as a royal residence ever since (the King of Spain still stays there when in Seville). Boasting an extraordinary mash-up of architectural styles ‒ ranging from Gothic to Mudéjar ‒ and lush gardens, it also stands in for the Water Gardens of Dorne in seasons five and six of the aforementioned HBO series. No wonder it’s the city’s most popular attraction.

Ena

Where to Eat: Ena

Ena is all about contrasts. Housed in the grand Hotel Alfonso XIII, this innovative restaurant takes its name from Victoria Eugenie ‘Ena’ of Battenberg ‒ the thoroughly modern wife of the more formal King Alfonso XIII. Opposites attract on the menu, too, as celebrated chef Carles Abellan playfully combines Catalan and Andalusian dishes. Order the tapas (when in Spain, it would be rude not to), but be sure to leave room for Abellan’s signature, the Mc Foie: a hamburger with a ganache of foie gras. Delicious.
