Review of Billie Jean in BARCELONA
In the hip upper Raval district, la Riera Baixa is famously known as the go-to street for all your vintage needs. Billie Jean is one of the undeniable stars here and has been supplying locals and visitors with unique garments for over a decade. For the owner Gisela Rodriguez, Michael Jackson’s inimitable style inspired her own wardrobe and later provided a strong, iconic concept for the shop’s vintage collection. It is impossible to overlook the King of Pop paraphernalia that adorns both the interior of the shop and the display windows. But there is certainly a much broader scope than she would have you imagine - from seventies psychedelic florals to forties elegance and genuine turn-of-the-century frills, the densely packed rails of cotton shirts, denim, leather, fur and shoes are a veritable trove of vintage treasures waiting to be discovered.
