With the holidays just around the corner, you'll probably start thinking about a special look you want to wear during these days. In the end, fashion is another way of communicating, without words, who we are or who we want to be and also, thanks to it, we can bring out the best in ourselves.
But the truth is that beyond the big chains, we don't always know where to find those different and exclusive garments or accessories in our own city and even more so when we are on the road.
Fortunately, the city of Barcelona offers an endless range of brands, stores and fashion boutiques; that is why in this article, I propose a selection of the best ones dedicated to women's fashion, to give yourself a present, go shopping with your friends, find something exquisite to give to your dearest ladies or, if you are just passing through, take an unforgettable souvenir of your stay in Barcelona.

Decorated with carpets, wood and steel, the mix of materials comes together and finds a magical balance. It is located next to the Turó park in one of the best areas of Barcelona to feel the local life of the city, surrounded by charming cafes and stores.
The neighborhood is also known for its buildings from the 70's and 80's by acclaimed architects such as Corsini, Coderch, Bofill and many others. Divided into two areas, the boutique offers a double atmosphere. The beige area offers comfortable clothes, made of natural fibers and soft colors. On the other hand, the blue zone is dedicated to more colorful and futuristic projects, synthetic fibers and new ways of understanding fashion. Both sides represent the dualism when it comes to dressing and how different ways of seeing the world can not only coexist but also get along.

It is impossible not to include in this list the new vision capital of Barcelona. Framed Gang is a specialized store and optician dedicated to dressing our eyes in the best way and getting to see the best of life, with the right lenses. It opened its doors at the end of July 2019 by the hand of Rubén Martin; although as it usually happens with the special places, its history began much earlier as a result of a nonconformist philosophy of life that he includes as "observe, rethink, create".
With more than 20 years dedicated to the world of optics, Rubén has been observing, analyzing and rethinking the strengths and weaknesses of the sector, until he managed to create a new concept of store dedicated to eyewear that surprises and at the same time meets the needs of the customer.
Because Framed Gang was born with the aim of establishing a close relationship with their customers and their glasses, creating community (hence the Gang in the title) and also provide society and the city of Barcelona responsible, fresh and innovative formulas.
