TWOTHIRDS Ocean licks featured

Water covers roughly two thirds of the world (hence the name) so it’s about time there was a fashion brand dedicated to it. Based in Barcelona, TWOTHIRDS is inspired by the oceans, surfing and all life that dwells in the deep blue. And it’s for this reason that most of their wares are either recycled or organic—and also produced in Europe so as to further reduce their impact on the planet.

Not only is their apparel flipper-friendly, it’s easy on the eye too. The Cali surfer look has been a mainstay for decades now but TWOTHIRDS has taken it to a more mature, even urban level. Of course there are blissed-out beach tees and shorts by the barrelful, however, these hang alongside some darker tones suitable for evening wear too and where the Maritime theme is evidenced only in say the imprint on a shirt button or the espadrille sole of a shoe.

That said, if you love the wild open sea, why not say it loud and proud? This is the store for you. So come down to the Barri Gotic, pick up your waterproof jacket made from recycled plastics, throw in a Breton striped sweater, and swipe a ‘50s-style board for your next surf trip. All this and more awaits…

Sabater Hermanos Soap heaven

The saga of the Sabater family business stretches back to the 1930s, when the Buenos Aires-based granddad of the clan started making soap in many different tints, flavors and shapes.

Since its opening in late 2006, the Barcelona branch of Sabater Hermanos has been located on one of the city’s most beautiful and historic squares: Plaça de Sant Felip Neri.

At this shop—which is still a family affair: it is run by the Sabater granddaughter Eliana—there are over 40 types of soap on offer: chocolate, old lavender, green tea, tea rose, pomelo, jasmine, coconut oil, olive oil… The list is long, colorful and extremely well-scented.

Trust Nobody ... but your sneakers dealer

Run by a young and dedicated team of skate and street wear enthusiasts, Trust Nobody offers a fine selection of limited edition sneakers from brands like Vans, Nike and Fred Perry. The shop, which also stocks skateboards, clothes and accessories, spreads out over two floors, with the sneakers and shirts at entrance level and everything else on the upper deck.

Trust Nobody’s second floor is also occasionally used as a gallery space, displaying work by local (often graffiti) artists.
