Barcelona is famous not only for the architectural masterpieces of the great Gaudi, but also for its vivacious energy that even approaches hedonism. Barcelona hosts multitudes of restaurants, bars, clubs, sport centers, theaters, museums, and, of course, fashion shops. Fashion is simply another facet of the Spanish love of life. In Barcelona, fashion meets bight, eye-catching models, world-famous and emerging brands, and boutiques that have just entered the arena of fashion alongside names in the industry whose history trace back several centuries.
It is always a good idea to start discovering fashionable landmarks in El Born district.

Lurdes Bergada, so adored by fashionistas, has several shops considered to be the best designer shops in Barcelona. Out of four boutiques, the most famous are the following: the spacious boutique in the Gothic district and the small, yet, cozy corner in the trade center on Passeig de Gràcia. Minimalistic apparel with a complex cut almost looks more like the creations of Yamamoto than pieces by the Spanish designer. External stiches, excessively coarse fabrics, and “working elegance” are the easily recognizable elements that characterize the style of Lurdes and her son and colleague, Syngman Cucala. It is in this signature style that the designers elaborate their collections for men. Bergada also sells her models in Madrid and Girona and ships online orders around the globe.

In any search for designer clothing shops in Barcelona, sooner or later you will find yourself in the district of Sant Gervasi. This is the place for those for whom “fashion” is less a word than a lifestyle. This is also the home of the multi-brand boutique that offers haute couture connoisseurs everything they might need: Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Prada, Miu Miu, Etro, Fendi, Gucci, and dozens more top-quality brands.

Their vision of fashion will be understood best by young fashionistas sharing world-wide views and those immersed into the latest fashion tendencies.
