Episode 1: Fab Finds in Madrid
Style Jaunt is about shopping differently. And shopping in Madrid is definitely unique, marked by its sophisticated luxury boutiques, handcrafted finds and welcoming shop owners. Canadian influencers Tamy Emma Pepin and Alanna Durkovich start their shopping journey in Barrio (meaning neighbourhood) Malasaña where they explore the hip, local gems of Spain, stumbling upon countless vibrant, cozy shops and restaurants while strolling the streets of the Spanish capital. The duo fall in love with the cultivated chaos at Sin Clon Ni Son boutique, stocked with accessories, handbags and clothing, and they are later amazed by the workmanship of the couple who own Oficio Studio, a workshop where gorgeous Spanish leather goods are designed and created with a special attention to detail.

The girls then head out for a drink (or two), starting at Hotel Emperador in the city centre—arguably the best place to stay in Madrid—and later enjoy classic cocktails at V Manneken, an intimate cocktail bar that feels like a friend’s apartment. Is there anything better than a fresh bevvie after experiencing the best shopping in Spain?
