I love fashion and I adore quality vintage pieces. If I’m ever looking for something special, be it a vintage leather bag, a one-of-a-kind piece of fashion jewelry or a beautiful wedding-appropriate floaty dress I visit Paris Vintage, a very special store set up on a first floor apartment just off of Rambla Cataluña in the Eixample district.
What makes this store very special is the woman who runs it, who coincidentally lives in the other half of this beautiful antique apartment. A French native by the name of Dorian, she has dedicated her whole life to the world of fashion. She is extremely fashion-savvy – one glance at you and from the racks of the store she will be able to pick out the one piece that will fit you perfectly and flatter you the most. She also works with most of the city’s stylists and designers, supplying them with ageless pieces from Chanel, Lanvin or Yves Saint Laurent and all other kinds of quirky, vintage finds.
If you visit this unique vintage store and feel like having something light to eat afterwards, I always like to go to Paul, the French patisserie sitting right below the apartment, to finish off this little French experience in the heart of Barcelona!
