Alabama Collect

Alabama Collect is a by appointment only, vintage treasure trove nestled in a small Poblenou showroom in Barcelona. Within minutes of stepping in to the attic space (with a rooftop terrace that dreams are made of) it was clear this is a must-visit every time I come to the city. It's an incredibly well edited vintage collection, with a heavy of focus on 90s designs. Worth noting is the wicker trunk filled to the brim with neatly folded Levi's and the mint condition Burberry trenchcoats – if only I hadn't just bought a new trench...

Paula who runs Alabama Collect is one of the loveliest people I've met and has been in the attic showroom about two months, however the online Tictail store has been going strong for a while. Praise be the fashion gods – the blue blazer I'd eyed up online was still there! That and about 5 other blazers I fell in love with, the addiction might be getting slightly out of hand. In other words, stay tuned for a cavalcade of blazer outfits.
