    Desigual - But everything else too.: Barcelona Style

    by Misha_abq Updated Jun 3, 2007

    Inside Desigual

    Barcelonian style is sooooooo hip. I've been to Rome (okay for elegant), Paris (what a disappointment), London (expensive)--but Barcelona was fresh, interesting, young, and creative. This was one of the stores that hung all their graphic t-shirts upside down in the entryway. Just a kick of an experience. It is a younger crowd for this store, but even the stores for the more mature buyer were quite interesting.

    I just loved going into the store--it's a great adventure.

    What to pay: A little pricey because of the euro, but such interesting stuff.

    Replay: A clothes shop like a millionaire's flat

    the forbidden flash of my camera

    OK, it's Replay. You can buy their jeans and tops in the UK (and they have some cool stuff - I bought a top in this very store), but what's special about this particular store is the design inside. There's a pool. And a hanging dragonfly sculpture thing. And more. You have to go to believe it. Pretend to be interested in the clothes while you discreetly gaze around yourself. But do not bring out your camera - I nearly got my head chopped off by a sales assistant for taking the picture (why?!)

    What to buy: They seem to specialise in jeans and stuff, but I love their kitsch dresses and funky tops.

    What to pay: My top was about 80 euros (£55) - kind of expensive for a bit of chiffon, but it's really unusual!

    Shoes / Clothes: H & M

    by Raimix Updated Feb 6, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    H & M is a popular brand of shops around Europe, mostly selling trendy clothes, other stuff. Actually in Barcelona centre was quite few these shops, offering big discounts and both inviting bunch of clients to watch or buy things.

    I was quite surprised, that prices in H & M, especially discounted ones were quite small, it would be hard to buy the same clothes for the same price in Lithuania.

    There is still no H & M shop in Lithuania, as I know to come into our market they need more stable and higher economics.

    Shoes / Clothes: H&M and also C&A

    H&M store in Barri Goti, Barcelona, Spain
    4 more images

    We found several chain stores like H&M, C&A and Sukot, all of which, for us, were deals. The prices they offered were less than 50% of what we had at home so we took advantage. For shoes, take a look at the shops running along the street that branches off from the Catalunya Square, C&A is also on that street.

    The fourth photo shows an interesting sign saying "I Love Shoes", we had to take a photo of that for our daughter Tal, who seems to "COLLECT" shoes.

    The fifth and last photo shows a shoe shop window that we liked very much. It shows a type of industrial grinder with old shoes going in at the top and a colorful array of new shoes coming out the bottom.

    What to buy: Clothes and Shoes. We found good quality for very reasonable prices.

    If you have more money to spend, then go to Gracia street, that is where the high-end shops are like Hermes (where my wife Zohara told me they would not let me in the door ;O))

    FASHION IN BCN

    by morganna Updated Aug 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barcelona is a important shopping center in Europe, since some of the most important brands are setting their shops in Barcelona, as a design and modern city.
    There are 2 points where you can find that kind of expensive or chic clothes. Pg. de Gràcia is one of them, a great place also for sighseeing, so highly recommended. There, you can find Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Roberto Verino, etc.
    The second spot is in Diagonal avenue, specially around Pl. Francesc Macià, where you can find Calvin Klein, Versace, Louis Vuitton, etc.

    But if you prefer (affordable) Zara or Mango stuff there's no problem, because you will find them in every commercial center: around Pl. Catalunya there are one of them almost in every corner!.

    Juan-Jo Gallery is at Elisabets 20 in El Raval. They design, make and sell wonderful jackets and leather complements. You can't find similar quality in BCN. Also they have very good prices. The point is these people are working in leather for more than 40 years and they know very well their job.

    What to buy: Jackets, bags and hats. Also different buckles & belts you can combine at your choice.

    What to pay: 95 euros for a magnificent bag in Spanish leather. Jackets betwen 250 and 450 euros.

    Barcelona is quite expensive, indeed those who come from UK
    There are a lot of international firms with fashionable stores along and across the downtown
    Passeig de Gracia is bloody expensive , from Vinçon store to wealthy jewleries, with the exception of some stores as Zara or Massimo Dutti
    You can find everything there if you are ready to spent a lot of money lol

    What to pay: So much!!

    Shopping in Sants

    by gasca Updated Dec 30, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sants street

    This is maybe off the beaten path, but is also quite typical from Barcelona. Sants street (beginning at Pza Espanya and ending in the town of Hospitalet) is one of the most crowded of the city. It's specially nice to see it on Christmas cos streets are adorned with color light bulbs and athmosphere is charming.

    What to buy: This long street is called the "Shoes shop street" but there are plenty of clothes shops and other kind of shops. There are many coffes, ice cream's shops, restaurants, fast foods...

    It's Europe's Longest Commercial Street.

    What to pay: It's not specially expensive, some had said to be pretty cheap, at least cheaper than in the City center...

    Paramita: Great Spanish designed clothes

    by monicarc Written Oct 12, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very cool, minimalist designed shop, selling line of spanish designed clothes. The store is only in Spain, so its pretty neat to buy clothes you can only get there.

    What to buy: Everything from spanish designers.

    What to pay: depends on what you buy. I recently bought, off the 70% off rack, 3 blouses, for 40 euro, which would have been regular price 132 euro.

    Handmade fashion in leather. I bought a jacket for my wife. Really stylish. Very good leather and much cheaper than the Paseo de Gracia stores (well kown brands). I spend much of my time in Paris and the same jacket could cost the double.

    What to buy: Jackets, bags, hats, belts and accesories.

    What to pay: Jackets starts at 275 euros. They have items on rebate.
