Company Profile Smash BCN
2
Barcelona is a colorful, happy and laid back city.
This is our attitude towards life: the Happy Barcelona Style,
the hallmark of many brands which have been born or raised here,
like Smash!, Mismash and Paramita.
Each of them has its own personality:
Smash! is daring, Paramita is modern and Mismash breathes romanticism.
However, all of them reflect the colors, the light and
the air of the Mediterranean. Therefore, each time you wear
one of our garments, you are wearing a bit of Barcelona.

OUR BUSINESS
CONCEPT
Our aim is offering inspiring and happy clothes to a wide
range of women with an e­ xcellent ratio quality-price. This
could not have been possible without our ­international
in-house design team and the never e­nding inputs
and inspiration they get from the city where we are
based: Barcelona. We have passion for art and
graphic design and this reflects in the ­
garments
we ­
create, that go ­
b eyond trends and have their
own flavor.
Each of our brands speaks out its personality: Smash!
is aimed to dress a daring yet cheerful w
­ oman. Mismash
was born as our second brand in 2011 to dress a more
­romantic and elegant lady. Finally, in 2013 the Smash!
Group ­acquired the brand ­Paramita, and launched in
SS14 w
­ ith great success its first c­ollection for a more
­urban ­and trendy target.

Quality is a very important topic in our daily activities.
We work in progress to improve our garments satisfy the
most demanding customers collection after collection. Our
aim is to establish long-term relations with our ­suppliers in
order to work together and always give the customer the
best deal. We keep our commitments to our suppliers the
same way we want them to keep theirs.
“Quality is a very important
topic in our daily activities ”.
We listen to the market needs and are eager to say that
we respond very rapidly to them. At the same time, being
conscious of the costs in all parts of the organization and h­ aving
as few middlemen as p
­ ossible has helped us to bring very
competitive prices to our customers.
14
“Three concepts,
three brands, one city”.
THE HAPPY
BARCELONA
STYLE
15
We love Barcelona: a creative, joyful and ­gorgeous city that
makes us who we are. ­­­We get nourished by its spirit day by
day. The flavors, the tones, the scents, the textures and the
air whispering through the buildings are the raw materials of
our creativity and the backbone of our collections.
They are different from each other but all of them
­e mbrace ­the air of the Mediterranean, where they have
been born, and the brightness, the wit and the a
­ ttitude
of Barcelona. They are under the same umbrella:
The Happy Barcelona Style.
Barcelona is a city with different tempos, different shades
and differents languages. The city sounds different, smells
different and can feel different depending upon where
­
we are. These diverse a
­ ttitudes inspire each of our three
brands: Smash!, Mismash and Paramita.
And the icon of this umbrella is Ella (She) the Muse
created by the acclaimed Barcelonian artist C
­
­ onrad
­Roset. She is a representation of all our clients, b
­ ecause
they are all different but still, they are all Ella.
OUR BRANDS:
SMASH!
Our first brand was created with a strong colour statement.
This is where its name comes from. The designs have become
bolder in order to make way for its flamboyant and very
original graphics.
“The collections are fun,
modern and dynamic and
­always at the best price ”.
16
COLLECTIONS
TARGET
Our collections include from high fashion colorful items
to basic pieces in more conservative colors that perfectly
team up to create total looks. On top of that, a
­ ccessories
like bags and scarfs help to create the p
­ erfect Smash!
outfit. The flattering cuts combined ­with our affordable
prices and our improved quality, make our brand very
desirable.
The Smash! woman is self-confident, creative and young
at heart and wants to dress her personality w
­ ith style and
­comfort. She loves to follow the trends but above all wants
that the garments she wears have a special attitude that
show her own personality.

“Smash! is the hot sun of the Mediterranean
shining on you at a bar terrace
while sipping a long drink.
It is the colorful graffities of a shop blind
at the alive neighbourhood of El Raval.
It is the lush of nature blossoming
on the hills of Montjuïc.”
19
OUR BRANDS:
MISMASH
Mismash means mixture, miscellaneous;
an original, yet contrasting, combination of elements. This is
exactly what our brand is: a mixture of original and elegant
patterns and delicate applications that makes each item a
perfect mix of power and sensitivity.
“A perfect mix of
power and sensivity”.
20
COLLECTIONS
TARGET
Our garments are carefully designed to create a
romantic and elegant collection that fits ­p erfectly.
The clothes are simple and cute and provide a ultrafeminine look for all occasions.
Our goal is to provide to fashion-conscious women a
modern and affordable wardrobe. It is an easy- to-wear
collection, made of colourful prints and attractive patterns.
The Mismash woman is 25 to 45 years old, confident and
style conscious. She follows the fashion trends and loves
to mix and match different styles in her wardrobe. She is
very keen on affordable garments, which gives her the
freedom to change her look frequently.

MODERN ROMANTICISM
NATURAL FEMINITY
SWEET PRINTS
ELEGANT CUTS
DREAMFUL DETAILS
“Mismash has the charm
of a medieval palace at the Barri Gòtic.
It has the grace of a beautiful
hidden corner at El Born.
And it is fresh and quiet
like an early morning stroll
at Parc de la Ciutadella.”
23
OUR BRANDS:
PARAMITA
Paramita is a term that comes from Buddhism and
means perfection or completeness.
And this is our aim: we want women to reach their
perfect look by offering original fashion that combines
cutting edge prints with comfortable garments made
in natural fibers.
24
“Exclusive graphics and
prints in natural fibers”.
COLLECTIONS
TARGET
Our garments are a combination of modern and
casual style. The collections are simple and cute, made
of perfectly fitted stylish pieces and ­original graphics.
Natural fibers are a key e
­ lement. The prints are made
by graphic artists and add a modern and cutting edge
attitude to the items.
Paramita is a brand for a chic woman that looks for l­atest
trends, thinks positively, loves her individuality ­­and has an
artistic flair. She gives importance to ­
­
p ersonal wellbeing
­looking for natural fabrics and comfortable patterns.

“Paramita is a wandering walk
around the Modernist Barcelona,
loosing your steps on the tiles of Passeig de Gràcia,
listening to the sound of your heels
on the hydraulic floors of an Eixample apartment.
It is a peep on a loft in Poble Nou,
glancing through the illustrations
of an upcoming new artist.”

markets now it is time to increase our awareness.
To do so we are working with specific actions
­addressed directly to different targets: distributors
and sales agents, franchisees, press, bloggers and
customers. From our presence to the most important
trade fairs, to advertising, all our actions are aimed

Smash ha dado sus primeros pasos para su
desembarco en el mercado estadounidense con la
apertura de una filial en Los Ángeles y la venta de sus colecciones en dos plataformas on line
en Estados Unidos. En la oficina de Los Ángeles cuenta con
hasta siete comerciales para dirigirse al canal multimarca con
sus tres marcas: Smash, Paramita y Mismash. Actualmente, las
marcas del grupo Smashwear
concentran un 80% de las ventas en mercados exteriores, básicamente en Europa. “Italia,
Francia y España son nuestros
principales mercados”, explica
Philippe Bach, director de la firma con sede en Badalona.
En el mercado español, la
marca reivindica su modelo
que denomina happy Barcelona
con la apertura de su primera
tienda propia en la capital catalana, que inaugurará durante la
primera semana de mayo en la
calle Portaferrissa. El establecimiento, un espacio de 80 metros cuadrados en el corazón de
la zona de compras de jóvenes
locales y turistas, integrará las
tres marcas del grupo Smashwear bajo el paraguas de la marca Smash Happy BCN Style. El
nuevo espacio será el escaparate para sus tres líneas de producto: la propia Smash, Mysmash y

Philippe Bach, director general, en la nueva tienda Smash Happy BCN Style
Smash reúne
sus marcas Paramita
y Mismash en
su primera tienda
propia en Barcelona
del 2012. “La tienda es para nosotros como un laboratorio para testar las tres marcas, porque
cada una tiene su circuito de distribución independiente y se dirigen a públicos diferentes”, asegura Philippe Bach.
De hecho, el objetivo de la
compañía no es una expansión
de este modelo de tiendas a nivel nacional, ya que su circuito
de distribución es el multimarca. “Es más fácil que veamos
una segunda tienda en nuestros
principales mercados, Francia e
Italia, que en otra ciudad española”, afirma Bach.
El grupo también está en pleno relanzamiento de la marca
Paramita, para la cual ha fichado a una diseñadora de Stradivarius, y que ya cuenta con una
distribución de 60 puntos de
venta multimarca.
Smash empezó como una
aventura personal de sus dos
fundadores, el británico Yoel
Gross y el holandés Amit Rahamim, que compraban ropa en
Asia (China, India y Tailandia),
la cargaban en una furgoneta y
la vendían en tiendas en España
a buenos precios. En el 2005, establecieron la compañía en Barcelona y en el 2011 vendieron
parte del negocio al fondo de capital riesgo Fordahl, con sede
en Banyoles.
Smash facturó 18 millones en
el 2013, un 9% más que el ejercicio anterior, y cuenta con una
plantilla de 80 personas, que se
ha incrementado en 20 trabajadores en dos años.c
EsclatOil, cadena de gasolineras
del grupo Bon Preu, que preside
Joan Font, ha habilitado un sistema para facilitar la documentación necesaria a los usuarios titulares de la tarjeta de cliente que
se hayan suministrado de carburante en una de sus instalaciones
entre los años 2010 y 2012.
El grupo ha tomado esta medida tras la sentencia del Tribunal
de Justicia de la Unión Europea
(TJUE), que declaró ilegal la aplicación del céntimo sanitario, explica el grupo catalán de distribución en un comunicado emitido
ayer. La sentencia abrió también
la puerta a la devolución de las
cantidades satisfechas por este
concepto en el periodo antes
mencionado.
El retorno del importe va a cargo de la Agencia Tributaria, y para tramitar la devolución es necesario presentar las facturas correspondientes y una ficha resumen de los consumos realizados.
Este supuesto es de fácil materialización en el caso de los profesionales del transporte y las grandes
empresas, pero muy difícil de llevar a la práctica para los pequeños clientes.
El grupo Bon Preu cuenta actualmente con 26 gasolineras bajo la enseña EsclatOil con un
servicio ininterrumpido durante
veinticuatro horas al día, 365 días
al año.c

Even though every market is different, the backbone of the
company is the same. Therefore all our ­­­communication
is aimed to create this very and only Smash! Happy
Barcelona Style.

things to try. We are growing and we have the world
