Fortunately for all of us, one day Julia Breiter decided to make the move from Germany to Barcelona and open a second-hand clothing boutique in the Raval district, where she sold minimalist pieces from the 1990s. As time went on, she began customising some of the pieces she was selling, which became very popular among her clientele. One thing led to another and she threw herself into designing. And so the Über den Wolken (‘above the clouds’ in German) brand was born which we love for the simplicity and natural charm it exudes.

Coastal landscapes and the silhouettes of the mountains contemplated from the sea are the key reference point that designer Berta Riera has drawn upon in the Hills collection. With a firm and sculptural line, she invites us to enjoy the charisma of these pieces, which she calls hills on the horizon that overlap, creating almost geometrical illusions.
When we asked jeweller Dalia Jurado to design a collection for Joid’art SS17, she decided to take an artistic trip back in time and found inspiration in the world of Art Nouveau. The Nouveau jewellery collection was born out of this inspiration, which she herself describes as ‘the synthesis of some of Hector Guimard’s lamp designs’.
Pepaloves is a brand that one falls in love with at first sight. Its cheerful, innocent and colourful clothes have an alternative look to them, with an underground feel that gives them a special personality all their own. At Joid’art we are totally enamoured by their patterns and simple cuts that keep monotony at bay. Our SS17 jewellery is a perfect match for their creations.
Constructing a figure out of paper using just scissors, glue and the imagination is no easy feat. Turning it into a career is nothing short of heroic; the preserve of those blessed with a special gift (as well as great skill), such as Raya Sader.
‘Cherry branches with downy buds about to burst into bloom.’ That’s how designer and Joid’art creative director, Cristina Julià describes the new Flowerbloom jewellery collection, the must-have for this spring and summer.
It all starts with someone. Someone able to capture the intensity of a moment. To abstract the shapes of a landscape. Interpret the nuances of light. Vibrate to the rhythm of the waves. Feel the strength of all that is alive. And turn it into art. Inspiration requires insight. Behind an aesthetic creation there is always a pair of perceptive hands.
Med winds is a brand inspired by the Mediterranean and born in the Raval district of Barcelona in the Spring of 2011. What was the idea behind it? To create collections of clothes and accessories that reflect a particular and unique lifestyle, a ‘Med’ lifestyle, which Llorenç Fluxà and his team have been committed to promoting.
Behind the lens of Lalovenenoso we find Martina Matencio, one of the most relevant and captivating photographers of the contemporary Barcelona scene. Her melancholic gaze, her way of interpreting natural light, and the aura she manages to capture around nude female bodies, turn her photographs into such intimate poems that they can only be recited in whispers.
