Barcelona Cute Suite goes shopping at Ivori

Ivori – Carrer Mirallers 7

Last week I finally went to Ivori, a small but very lovely, ivory-coloured (hence the name) corner shop that I had been hearing and reading about a great deal.

And rightfully so, it turns out. For Ivori is a shop that sells clothes, shoes, handbags and jewelry as well as other accessories that have been made in Barcelona. (You know by now that I am more than just fond of local goods, right?)

Barcelona Cute Suite goes shopping at Ivori

All made in Barcelona

Brand names such as Alexandre Neddermann, Borne by Elise Berger, Lubochka, Maria RochName and Mus & Roew have been carefully curated by the friendly owner Carola Alexandre (who is half of Alexandre Neddermann by the way), and take centre stage in her charming shop (check out its 19th century ceiling!). You might recall the two last brand names from posts I did earlier, here and here

Beautiful items (many handmade!) at reasonable prices in an array of colours and materials that seduce and enchant – that is what I found at Ivori. What more can a girl ask for?

You can find Ivori on Carrer Mirallers 7. It opens from Monday – Saturday from 11am until 8.30pm. For those of you who are unable to pop round for a visit, you can take a peek (and buy) in the Etsy shop. And if it is updates and the latest news you want, then check out the Ivori Facebook page. Happy shopping!

Showroom and studio

On Carrer Palma de Sant Just number 12 the Name showroom and studio is located, and it is there that I took the images of this post. The range includes ladies’ knits and woven items, as well as the recent addition of men’s knits (below).

Made by Irene’s grandfather

The theme of this year’s A/W collection is ‘wood’, and as with all the Name themes, occurred spontaneously, when Irene and Clara decided to use the pegs that Irene’s grandfather had made (above) as inspiration.
