You’ll find a whole lot more than just slick streetwear and limited-edition footwear in this menswear boutique. Owner Xavier Burgell describes his retail concept as “a space that aims to appeal to manliness in its real essence.” The result is a curious mix of footwear from the likes of Cortica shoes, leather goods from Il Bussetto, Miansai jewelry, office items from Nomess Copenhagen, Mad et Len lamps and furniture from local design studio Octaevo.
Blaw’s inhouse brand Rebel Basics offers a collection of classic staples like crewneck sweaters and basic T-shirts. Accessories, grooming products and even gourmet food – all selected for their quality credentials – complement the denim, shirts, footwear and outerwear in bare brick interior spaces. This has clearly found a loyal following: there’s a shop in Eixample, one in Las Arenas in Plaza Espanya and another on the way in Sarría.
Everything you need to kit out your man cave under one roof.
