Want to squeeze some shopping into your Barcelona adventure? Local shops and boutiques ensure that you can pick up unique goods that no one else in your town is wearing. Make a day in Barcelona to shop around for threads you can wear year round.
Check out these local galleries that offer clothes you can’t find anywhere else.
Designer Krizia Robustella creates colorful, playful urban clothes with a playful element. Throwback designs beckon New Wave feels.

Natalie Capell’s works are from another era, with classy, embroidered and timeless designs that are made with precision and attention to detail. Her shop features evening dresses, wedding wear and tops -- ideal if you’re looking for something to wear to a special event. Step into yesteryear at this boutique located in the Gothic Quarter.
Carrer de la Carassa, 2
We love Ivori because it’s 100 percent Catalan. Check out their clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories for one-of-a-kind pieces. Chances are no one at home will be wearing what Ivori carries (unless of course you live in Catalonia). Pick up a linen romper at Ivori! And while you’re there, check out the nearby Picasso Museum, with the late artist’s works house in a medieval mansion.
Carrer dels Mirallers, 7
Claimed by fashionistas as the best label in Barcelona, Colmillo de Morsa has seen the runways of Madrid Fashion Week and others across Europe. Nordic designs are made into fresh, modern pieces. For more info, check out Not Just a Label’s write-up on the Barcelona brand and get a feel of their light, distinct runway looks.
Carrer de Vic, 15
For those fans of all things vintage, Le Swing Vintage is a local favorite that features old-school Chanel blazers, Hermés handbags, as well as new items that fit the style. Pick up a pair of sunglasses from another era to wear to the beach, or a distinct accessory to pair with an outfit for your night on the town in Barcelona.
Carrer del Rec, 16
Boo features quirky yet conservative items for both men and women, featuring brands from Portugal and France. If you usually like to play is safe, Boo is certainly up your alley while maintaining a playful flair. Boo regularly features themed seasonal releases, showcasing global designers.
