Today we present you ELIJAH (Calle Trafalgar, 6) the new creative project of the British model Stephen James at Barcelona. Well known for being tattooed from head to toe, all of his sculptured body. Stephen, who before becoming a model began his professional career as a footballer and came to play with the Scottish Youth National Team, has been the image of brands like Calvin Klein, Philipp Plein or Diesel, alongside personalities such as Madonna or the model Irina Shayk.

His own tattoo studio and barber shop – Elijah – in a cavernous and ultra contemporary space in the heart the city that he has come to call home. He’s put his personal stamp on the interior design – with some of his emblematic tattoos reproduced in a mosaic. Space features carefully selected designer furniture such as Japanese Belmont chairs along with six tattoo cabins resulting in a beautifully curated space in which no detail has been overlooked. Invoking the spirit of the classic barber shops, the resident stylists at Elijah offer world-class techniques, exclusive products like the exclusive male grooming line House 99 by David Beckham and highly personalized experience to their clients.

The opening together with HOUSE 99 had exceptional guests and friends of Stephen like the Dj Fonsi Nieto, the influencer Sergio Carvajal, the photographer Gerard Estadella, the founder of Fucking Young! Eduardo Garcia, designers Gori de Palma and Victor von Schwarz, the interior designer Jaime Beristain, the artist Albert Madaula or Carlos C. Pareja, or the actor Daniel Horvath, among other people from the Barcelona scene.
