Santa Eulalia, Barcelona

- By Andrea Mestrovic - 

Every visit to Barcelona is a voyage of discovery.  With its effervescent energy, colorful architecture and a profusion of curious boutiques, which often carry most unexpected brands, this vivacious city is historically on trend – and it continues to offer spirited shopping at its finest.
-
Santa Eulalia is one of Barcelona’s greats – full stop.  Over the past 169 years, since the opening of its first store in Pla de la Boqueria in 1843, Santa Eulalia has been in pursuit of luxury brands, setting high fashion standards for men and women, and always focusing on the quality of costumer experience.
-
Today, this legacy continues with a redesigned store concept which now includes a pristine, pallid, multi-use pop-up store, a prêt-à-porter delicatessen café (tapestry pattern used here is an exquisite reprint of historic Liberty) and an open-air terrace with rows of Tolix chairs.  The store shelves – brought over from the Parisian Galeries Lafayette – are lined with Céline a-line leather tees, Rodarte fifties prom dress silhouettes, Proenza Schouler eel skin striped dresses, and Thakoon yoked Western shirts.  The collections are chosen to perfection with a medley to satisfy the most particular of savvy shoppers.
-
In keeping with its traditional purpose, Santa Eulalia continues to offer one of the most prestigious tailoring services in the country.  With every custom order, a team of master tailors strives to give personality and character to the fabric and cut.  It takes seven tailors forty-two hours to make a suit, which in turn transmits meticulous sensations, original values and gratifying emotions for the customer.
-
The company is still family run, with Luis Sans as president, and his wife, Sandra Domínguez, as Director of women’s fashion. “With the recent changes and additions to elevate the customer experience, Santa Eulalia has achieved an ambience that is modern, comfortable and of high quality, linking traditional elements with contemporary ones”, comments Luis Sans.
-
In other words, Santa Eulalia is a necessary stop on your tour of Barcelona.
