Style Jaunt: The Artists of Madrid

Style Jaunt By Style Jaunt

In this second episode of the series, Tamy brings Alanna to multi-ethnic Barrio de Lavapiés to visit an alternative gallery. The bloggers also explore the trendy Justicia district, where chic and fashion are omnipresent. From very spartan spaces to detailed and colourful brands, stores leave you feeling like you are in a Pinterest board. This district is the perfect place to find a present, upgrade your wardrobe or find the perfect element to complete that Spanish interior design you’ve always dreamt of.

Watch the second episode to discover some great destination for art lovers:

Swinton & Grant

Alanna and Tamy steer us off the beaten path as they set off to explore Madrid’s underground art scene in Barrio de Lavapiés, a bohemian neighbourhood with a vibrant multicultural streak. Their first stop is Swinton & Grant, a gallery, bookstore and coffee shop owned by Gregorio “Goyo” Villasevil, who exhibits works by all types of artists, the obscure and mainstream, the emerging and famed, the local and international. And the art is not confined to the gallery, spilling out and splashed onto urban walls in a unique project called “Mind the Wall.”

Do Design
The duo then take us to the swanky Justicia district, where they discover the even swankier Do Design, a funky concept store with white brick walls that blurs the lines between fashion, art, design and home decor. Owner Lucía Ruiz-Rivas displays a penchant for products “made with love and care”, her
bestsellers are home decor items and stationery for those on the hunt for a unique gift, and is constantly tweaking her boutique to keep up with her ever-evolving vision.

Zahir Madrid

Our online influencers then pop into Zahir Madrid in pursuit of bohemian threads by Tete by Odette, one of Tamy’s favourite brands. The boutique bursts at the seams with Spanish flavour, its designer duds meticulously handcrafted and all gussied up with colourful prints, ornate embroidery and inventive ethnic patterns, fit for the hippie chic and the trendy alike.

Parque del Buen Retiro

The girls end their day with a stroll through Parque del Buen Retiro, a green oasis in the city centre, to soak up the sun… and the local vibe.
