Barcelona fashion is a funny thing. It can be elegant and simple, almost Parisian, and it also can be super stylized, too much so, many foreigners might think. The following stores represent a smattering of that spectrum. One can spot the frocks or emblazoned shopping bags of all the below retailers anywhere around Barcelona.
Custo Barcelona: Custo is an obvious but deserved inclusion >
Desigual: The most playful of Spanish style >
*Mango: Penelope Cruz and Mango make quite the pair >
Stradivarius: The Spanish Forever 21 >
Zara: Zara is an international chain, but Spain is the homeland >
