Shop for A-grade vintage fashion and homewares at Barcelona’s biggest and best vintage store!
This is part of an exciting collaboration between myself and Avis Inspires – Check out my full Barcelona guide (with videos) here.
It’s no secret that Barcelona is heaven on earth for fashionistas of all styles and tastes, but the city’s vast array of vintage fashion boutiques makes it extra-special for those in search of one-off fashion pieces.
Established in 1972, Holala! has been providing “unique clothing for unique people” for over 40 years and now has a number of stores in and around Barcelona, as well as one in Ibiza.
Holala! Plaza is the flagship store and occupies a wondrous space in the vibrant and culturally diverse neighbourhood of Raval. Here men and women alike can hunt out everything from sweaters, shirts and shoes to dresses, denim and designer accessories.
The racks are also jam-packed with jackets, ranging from authentic military pieces to geek-chic sport coats and American baseball jackets.
But at Holala! it’s not only the impressive volume of their stock that makes it so special, it’s also the quality of each and every piece. Their fashion-savvy buyers travel the world, scouring flea markets and visiting textile recycling centres on their quest to seek out the hippest and highest quality vintage fashion finds.
Everything is handpicked and meticulously studied before being displayed in-store, and it’s this attention to detail that has garnered the store such a loyal following of fashion-focussed individuals.
Even big names such as Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Elton John and Kate Moss have shopped at Holala!.
But as if that wasn’t enough to get you excited, there’s even more. Holala!’s passion for vintage style and design has seen them branch out into the world of furniture and homewares, which means you can style out the rest of your home as well as your wardrobe.
Importing stylish pieces of vintage furniture from Saint Tropez in France and all across the Unites States, you’ll find everything from retro dining tables, sofas and lighting to vintage video games, skateboards and surfboards from the 70s and 80s.
Make sure to leave plenty of space in your suitcase — you’re definitely going to need it after discovering Holala!.
