Lefties: Zara’s budget-friendly sister


Budget or no budget, everyone loves a good bargain! There’s something so inviting and enticing about a sale or a great markdown, that we often can’t help ourselves but to stop everything we’re doing just to rummage through a bunch of clothing items in search of our favourite pieces from our favourite high street clothing stores.

Well, you’re in major luck if you’re a closet shopaholic because you can now shop major deals and clearances right from your home from Spanish fashion brands like Zara, Bershka, Mango, TRF, Pull & Bear and many more affordable labels. Meet Lefties: a budget-friendly store, based in Barcelona, Spain with about 5 stores across Barcelona and and two shops right in the city centre itself. It apparently is aesthetically just like a Zara store, but without the high street fashion label on their clothing items.


Lefties have also been expanding and are now producing their own clothing for both men and women as of late last year. Not only that- they have also just recently opened their first store in Doha, Qatar on the 10th of December at the Mall of Qatar.

If you live anywhere in the world other than in Spain or Qatar, and are envious of this fashion invention and saviour, you might want to opt for a parcel forwarding service to enjoy your on-sale goods from home.

A similar concept to Lefties here in Singapore would be our outlet mall IMM, located in Jurong’s east. The five storey mall is composed of both affordable and designer brands like Charles and Keith, Cotton On, Adidas, Calvin Klein Jeans, and Coach.

So, next time you feel like shopping but don’t have the funds and aren’t a fan of breaking the bank, have a look through Lefties to satisfy your retail therapy needs.
