Shopping In Barcelona

While you can see some European cities by just passing through, Barcelona is a destination. Barcelona centre is a shopping paradise for mainstream fashion stores you find in every European city. If however, you’re looking for something more original, step off the touristic track into neighbourhoods like Gracia and Barri Gothic, where you’ll find numerous independent designers outlets offering unique styles at affordable prices.

It was Paris Champs Elysees that inspired the city to build Passeig de Gracia. Alongside the boulevard’s street cafes through narrow streets to the left and right and its 19th century houses you will discover a virtual paradise for fashion shopping. Shopping Gracia’s stores is always followed by live spanish guitar performance of the Gypses around that echoes the streets and leaves you a lifetime memory to remember.

Among plenty colourful stores here that offer factory –made lines, Bulbo boutiques sell quite affordable clothes from various designers that are handmade and woven. They also sell accessories like bags, hats and jewellery. Barcelonas Gracia is a local shopping destination tip for all fashion seekers in Jose Rivero and Menchen Tomas in-house collections. Their trendy, youthfull and colourful quality handmade clothes are surprisingly affordable (prices-little above those in mid-level high street stores). Throughhout the whole season you will find newly finished elements of the collection. Another clothing designer that opened his store in Gracia surrounding was Ramon Marquina, the former lecturer in fashion. He caters for both sexes, from twenty-somethings to those old enough to be their grandparents. He designs overcoats, jackets, skirts, shirts and more, including all kinds of accessories. Prices range from €40 for a belt to €480 for a top-of-the-range overcoat. No exploatation here, as everything is Barcelona produced with materials from central Europe.

Women # 1 recommended Gracia’s boutique is Philo where you can find a large selection of kittenish dresses and blouses, retro and Oriental-style outfits as well as elegant dresses made from specially chosen drapery. They also sell very nice handbags, some of them individually painted with funny comic motifs. Worth to be mentioned is one of the most creative shops that provide reasonably priced clothing for all of the family - Pygmees located further away to the south, in Barcelona’s Barri Gothic. Boutique were grownups and the young at heart are equally well catered for wide range of playful and uniquely tailored styles. Bari Gothic at Placa Catalunya is a fashion place of French-run Soul boutuque chain full of trendy clothes, sweet accessories, bags, and piercing jewellery for urbanites. The selection in the three shops fits in well with the character of each neighbourhood: affordable and down-to-earth streetwear in Raval, and a more colourful and feminine selection in the two branches of the Barri Gothic.
