The Palauet de Passeig de Gràcia held the 3rd edition of the Baúl Weekend on December 16 and 17, a luxury solidarity market which proceeds went to the NGO “Sonrisas de Bombay” (Bombay Smiles). For more experience like that and a perfect holiday, get the most unique experience with BE Apartment in the best luxury apartments in Barcelona and other cities, for your security, pleasure and comfort.
One day, 5 friends from Barcelona, devastated by the Mediterranean refugee crisis, asked themselves: how can we encourage people around us to show more solidarity? Can we get that the way to donate money to an NGO become an experience? This is how the idea of Baúl Weekend was born: a luxury fashion bazaar on the outside, and a chain of solidarity and human help from within. It’s a fashion market where you can buy some luxury items at the price of Zara; but above all, it is an event that helps to raise a large amount of money in record time to be sent entirely to people who need it. During Baúl Weekend 2016 they managed to raise more than 62,000€!
At this edition of Baúl Weekend you could find iconic and luxury fashion items such as a Birkin (Hermes) canvas and leather bag, a Chanel jacket or a Louis Vuitton motorcycle helmet. There were several fashion influencers such as Gala González, Miranda Makaroff or Vanesa Lorenzo who made their donation with items faithful to their personal style. You could find all kinds of clothes and fashion accessories for men, women and children, from exclusive national and international luxury brands such as Chanel, Prada, Isabel Marant, Balenciaga, Chloé, YSL, Dolce Gabbana, Gucci, Lanvin, Hermès and Jimmy Choo, among many others, to more commercial ones such as Zadig & Voltaire, Sandro, The Kooples, Paul & Joe, Comptoir des Cotonniers or even Zara or H&M.
