MYBARRIO was born in 2016 with a simple Instagram account, with the intention of giving visibility to a careful selection of brands, designers, artists and creative projects linked to the creative cities, starting in Barcelona and now Madrid and Marseille. It is a label that promotes a unique selection of local design, fashion, art, home decor and local lifestyle.
“The Place to Be” for a community of creatives and lovers of all artistic disciplines including photography, architecture.
With great enthusiasm, we are already a growing community, sharing the same taste for aesthetics, giving support to its people, returning to the values of “neighborhood” (barrio in Spanish). We look for new design “treasures” and lifestyle every day and share them in our networks. We organize pop ups, create experiences and sell designs in very limited editions via our online store. Welcome!
EXTRACT the creative essence of a city and make it available to everyone in one place, giving the best possible visibility to its creators and designs.
CONNECT design lovers who need to make sense of what they consume with a different shopping experience, offering them a personal and careful selection.
CONSUME IN A MORE RESPONSIBLE WAY in a friendly environment, because we need to know who we are buying from, how it has been done and support local designers.
GATHER a coherent selection of fashion and lifestyle in one place. We have designers that you can only buy in MYBARRIO, they are limited editions. We bring together all creative, cultural and artistic disciplines.
SHARE with a creative community that has the same values and tastes as you.
Behind MYBARRIO, there is the community and many collaborators with values and talent, who have supported and participated in the project. The Alma mater of MYBARRIO is Hortense, a French woman living in Barcelona, who fell in love with the city. She saw the immense creative and cultural potential that she had and in her own way she wanted to unite and promote it. After more than ten years in the massive industry of fashion and design as Buyer and Collection Manager, she turned her life around to approach values that were more related to her; those of craftsmanship, closeness and respect towards others, both her work and her production process. In other words, to approach Slowlife, “Life without haste”…

“MYBARRIO” or share the singularity by the proximity.
“I like MYBARRIO for its unconditional support to the local creators, there are incredible people doing things in Barcelona but it is very common that we have to go out or find our public in other places and it is appreciated that someone gives us a voice and space in our own city, thank you Hortense.

Mónica Figueras, the graphic designer and photographer born on the Costa Brava, now lives in Barcelona. The sensitivity of her gaze and the colours of her negatives define everyday beauty; shared moments and landscapes portrayed from intimacy. Mónica has made our first editorial of photos and 2pop-ups photos. We have a very similar aesthetic.
Collettivo Mare is an independent graphic collective born at the end of 2015, founded by Leonardo Schiavina and Luca Cammarata. They work between Barcelona and Italy. Collettivo Mare puts its roots between the link with the sea and the romantic idea of being able to improve the world thanks to its projects. Leonardo has done the last 4 artworks of the pop ups of MYBARRIO and much more. He is already part of the soul of MYBARRIO.
Sam Zucker is from Boston, USA and has created his photography, video, food and travel brand, Zucker & Spice, in 2013. Since then it has become a household name in Barcelona’s creative scene. He works as a commercial photographer and videographer specializing in travel, food, urban landscapes, products and lifestyle. Sam has made two of the videos for MYBARRIO! Incredible.
