Style Jaunt: Fab Finds in Madrid

Style Jaunt By Style Jaunt

Shopping in Madrid is unique: you will discover a very sophisticated culture through its luxury boutiques and warm owners. Canadian online influencers Tamy Emma Pepin and Alanna Durkovich start their journey in the very hip Barrio de Malasaña to discover the best shops and explore the local gems of Spain. Barrio de Malasaña is known to be very vibrant and to have lots of great restaurants and shops. Cozy and unique design perfectly describe the kind of shops and restaurants Tamy and Alanna have the chance to stumble on.

Watch the first episode of the series to discover Fab Finds in Madrid:

Sin Clon Ni Son

In this first episode of Style Jaunt in Madrid, fashion blogger Alanna Durkovich and TV host Tamy Emma Pepin begin their adventure in the funky Barrio de Malasaña, a graffiti-splattered hipster’s stomping ground, to discover the hidden gems of this Spanish city. Here, they stumble upon Sin Clon Ni Son (which, in Spanish, means “without any order”), a boutique that carries emerging European brands and local Spanish designers, a colourful collection of classic and modern digs that mirrors the vibrant vintage-meets-trendy feel of its neighbourhood.

Oficio Studio
Alanna and Tamy then head off to Oficio Studio, a quirky workshop fit for a Pinterest board, owned by David Iglesias and Melina Carranza Maciel. It is in this workshop that the couple, who met when Melina chanced upon David’s bicycle shop to fix the chain guard on her bike, are reviving old Spanish traditions to create meticulously crafted goods out of vegetable tanned leather. It is also in this workshop that Tamy falls in love with an oversized honey-coloured leather bag.

Hotel Emperador and V Manneken
The girls then celebrate a fruitful day of shopping with drinks at the luxurious Hotel Emperador in the city centre. Then it’s off to V Manneken, a homey, intimate cocktail bar that moonlights as an art and photography shop by day.
Co-owner and mixologist Jane Stoddart regales Alanna and Tamy with tales of Malasaña’s nightlife, which bloomed in the 1980s with a countercultural movement called La Movida, while concocting a few delightful classic cocktails.
