406. TRAVELGUIDE: BARCELONA DESIGNERS OUTLET - LA ROCA VILLAGE

11:56:00 AM


In a previous post I wrote about how much I love it to spend time at Maasmechelen Village, the designer outlet in Belgium. But also in Barcelona, Spain, there's an Outlet as well named 'La Roca Village'. Since 2013 La Roca is organizing a pop up store during the summer where you can find designs from upcoming talents and this year I was invited for their launch of the Pop Up store for 2017, where 70 new talents were showing their clothing, art and interior lines.

After checking-in in the beautiful 'Condes' hotel in the centre of Barcelona (Passeig de Gracia 73) we had lunch at 'Café & Tapas' and discovered all the amazing boutiques located in the Village, which are more than 130 stores in total. Later on the day the launch party started and we visited the Pop Up store of the designers as well which will be there until the 30th of August. During my visit at the Collective I found some pieces I really like such as the golden framed glasses, espadrilles laced shoes and a pineapple bag, they're of course shown in this post. But there was so much more! You can find amazing art frames, home decorations, illustrations, contemporary jewelry and clothing lines as well in the Pop Up.

I find it really amazing how the Village is investing in starting people/businesses and how they're helping to make their dreams come true. Thanks to this project they already supported over 150designers. If you would to know the names for this year's edition, you can take a look here.

So if you're in Barcelona this Summer, make sure you pass by the Village. It's sunny, vibrant and even has a playground for kinds to play on. Also the 'Amorino' ice creams are a good reason to go and don't forget the outlet stores such as Gucci, Swarovski, Furla, Bimba y Lola, La Perla, Rituals,... which are definitely worth a visit! Last but not least; visit the pop up store and give these new talents some support.
