When you hear the words "Dolce Vita," Italy will always come to mind. It's a saying—practically a lifestyle—that they've embraced over there for decades. But what does that have anything to do with Barcelona? Well, along Carrer de la Diputació is a designer outlet store that bears these same words. Set up like an old-fashioned boutique, Dolce Vita sells pieces from your favorite Italian brands. Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Versace, and more are all sold here, most at lower prices. Some pieces here might even be vintage finds that you won't see anywhere else!
It seems that just about every fashionable city in Europe has its own outlet village. An entire town devoted to discount shopping for the finest designer goodies and luxury finds. Barcelona is no different. Though theirs is technically outside the city center—and you'll need to rent a car or ride a bus to get there—La Roca Village is often considered as one of the Catalan capital's best shopping districts. And you wouldn't argue about that when you see the great deals offered here! Low prices from the likes of Michael Kors, Gucci, Sandro, and more are all up for grabs here.
No, this isn't a place exclusively for left-handed people. ‘Lefties’ is one of Barcelona's most prominent outlet stores. The name is a play on "leftovers," particularly from Spain's most beloved brands that make up most of the pieces here. It started out as an outlet for Zara, but through time, they've come to sell other high-street labels such as Mango, Bershka, Pull & Bear, and more. And yet, even when most of the stuff here are leftovers, the quality in them remains completely intact. And don't worry about finding it, there's a lot of branches throughout the city!
Speaking of high-street brands, there's another outlet store over by Avenue Rio de Janeiro that also sells them at lower prices. It's SOM Multiespai and it's become one of the city's most-visited shopping havens. This comes as no surprise as it's quite easy to get to. You'll only need to take the L1, L4, and L5 trains on the metro and you'll get here instantly. And compared to Lefties, the pieces are slightly newer and more up-to-date. They're not exactly "leftovers," but rather off-season. Many of which are still trendy enough to make it look like they're from the latest collections!
Barcelona's El Born neighborhood isn't exactly a place you'd associated with luxury shopping. You'd more likely buy souvenirs here than high fashion items. But not if you stumble across The Outlet! store. Along Carrer del Bonaire, which is easy to get to via a taxi, this hidden gem of an outlet stores offers great deals on some of fashion's most beloved brands. Some of them have even closed down, making the pieces all the more desirable. Here, you could get discounted prices on items from Gianfranco Ferre, Deisel, Gucci, and more!
You'll have to rent a car to get to the Can'Alemany de Viladecans. It's along the C-32 motorway. But why would you need to go here in the first place? You would if you want to get great designer pieces at discounted prices. The recently opened Viladecans The Style Outlets mall houses some of the world's favorite designers, selling their pieces at great deals. The likes of Moschino, Tommy Hilfiger, Chloe, and more are all on offer here and made more affordable. You'd feel as if you have a million bucks with how much you can spend here without going bankrupt yourself!
Barcelona isn't just full of beautiful monuments and beautiful people. It's also filled with beautiful fashions and luxury items. But perhaps the most beautiful part about them is that they're more affordable in various designer outlet stores throughout the city.
Now, if you want a beautiful Barcelona luxury apartment for your stay in the Catalan capital, don't you worry! The city has tons of them, each ready to welcome visitors to help them enjoy the place!
