Marc Jacobs once said: clothes are nothing until someone has lived in them. Under this statement, we confirm that fashion is a cyclical phenomenon, so paradoxically, vintage will always be one step ahead. And nowadays it is a solid bet within the fashion sector, to such an extent that many designers are replicating the iconic garments of their houses. Moreover, the rise of this market is directly related to the sustainability factor. To this awareness must be added the trend of constant renovation driven by the networks. That’s why, from the H. team, we bring you a selection of vintage shops where to buy in Barcelona.
Le Swing Vintage
Renier Guerra’s shop is one of the places of pilgrimage for lovers of luxury vintage. They treasure clothes and accessories, from scarves to glasses, hats, bags and shoes, from brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Chanel and Hermès, among others, from the 1920s to the present day.

In Barcelona’s Gothic quarter is Love Vintage, a shop that believes in “reusing and recycling the things that still count, in dressing well but with some ethics”. They have fashion from the 70s to the 90s, but they have some older treasures.
