If you're the type of girl who likes to wear simple tees with a foreign phrase, delicate sweaters with cool sneaks and a vintage bag, we've found your new favorite place. Wynwood has added it's newest resident to the neighborhood with Double Agent, a Barcelona-based brand specializing in blouses, tees, skirts, bags, shoes, and accessories for women. The best part? Its all made and shipped from Barcelona, so you'll know that foreign phrase on your tee is definitely written correctly.
Along with the clothes' elegant simplicity is the store's interior, which perfectly parallels that vibe. White bare walls with the occasional gallery wall and potted plant will make you feel like you're in an effortlessly beautiful apartment in Barcelona. Plus, brown, quilted couches adorn the entrance, so after you're done pursuing the metal racks, have a cozy seat while you look out at the streets of Wynwood.
But here's why you should check it out ASAP. Although the store opened two weeks ago, it's having a huge sale on all its exclusive foreign brands from November 12th through the 15th. And we're talking about a cosmic sale (up to 50 percent off). The usual price range for it's cool collection is $20-$40, which means that $10 tees are in your future. Unfortunately, the sale is only for clothing items, not it's handbags, shoes, and accessories. It's only two weeks old after all.
Expect more blowouts like this in the future. The Open Market (kind of like a sample sale) happening this week is the start of a new tradition. It hopes to be one of your stops every second Saturday of the month. And how could it not? Art plus deals on Barcelona blouses? Yes, please.
