This has been one of the strangest summers in a long time. I’ve actually been caught up with quite a lot of work and then decided to take a few weeks off in September. The month is now drawing to its close and it will be time to once again jump on the work wagon and start getting things done. I managed to get away for a few days to a lovely rural hotel, I’ll be sharing a post soon with lots of photos. And the last “summer” getaway is this weekend, to the Festa de Grafisme in Portbou, which I’m really looking forward to. For the moment, I want to share my two most recent fashion columns in Barcelona Metropolitan.
20 Trajes – Diálogo entre la moda y literatura is still on until the 16th of October. Remember to check out this small exhibition in the evening, so that the sun won’t mess with your viewing pleasure. Click on the photo to see a bigger size photo and read my column.
Fed-up of trying to find the perfect vintage stores? The vintage scene is very different here in Barcelona, I bemoan the lack of flea markets and car-boot sales. There are more and more stores filled with racks upon racks of vintage garments, but the prices are often nothing short of ridiculously expensive. Click on the photo to read my column on vintage in Barcelona. I’ve started compiling a list of stores for the Barcelona Metropolitan website, so please feel free to send me any tips and we’ll include them in the list.
