Back to the year 2009, a time when there was still no Apple Store in plaça de Catalunya but you could find a funny precedent of the “teen swag Barcelonin movement” located in the Portal del Angel entrance of El Corte Inglés . Girls with backcombed updo in Amy Winehouse style, sporty emo boys and rude girls all of them mixed and spiced with members of the “chunga” crew, all of them hanging out always at the same spot on weekend afternoons. The scene was different then, this bunch was not that easy to approach photographically speaking, they were not used to cameras and selfie was definitely not a common word yet. Things have changed a little bit it seems.
