The Women fashion is particularly well represented, by the famous brands which all have a store in Barcelona, but also with the young creators increasingly present.

  4. Normandie, cute baby clothing shop - Anne (19 Mar 2012 - 17:45)

    Second time in Barcelona and enough to get off the tourist trail. I´m french, but live in the States and it´s a pleasure to discover a baby clothing brand with such a nice design and high quality fabrics. The brand name is Normandie ( but the site is not translated yet), and the little boutique I´ve visited was located in the middle of the Eixample, and in front of a nice restaurant (Cerveceria La Catalana). I really recommend the boutique to any mother o anyone that want to make a gift!

  6. STAY AWAY from Lisa Regals - Botiga de souvenirs, 20 Carrer de la Princesa, Barcelona - European tourist (18 Jul 2011 - 09:00)

    Stay away from this souvenir shop! We were checking out a T-shirt to buy as a gift to a 4 year-old, but the one in the store was to small. Then the guy working there pleasently said he would check in the back for the right size. After a few moments he came back with the right size and it was wrapt up in a concealed plastic bag. When we arrived back home, it was way to big and the guy actually had cut off the tag in the neck. He even made a hole in the shirt while trying to remove the tag. What an unbelivable loser, especially when the buyer of the shirt was 10 years old.

  7. shopping à Barcelone - Etienne V (27 Mar 2011 - 11:15)

    une belle ville pour le shopping même si ce n'est pas Londres ou Paris.. Mais super quand même. Presque toutes les boutiques petites ou grandes marques sont dans le même coin ce qui n'est pas désagréable voir génial.. Quelques créateurs locaux ou espagnols à suivre.
