Style Jaunt’s mission is to discover the best shopping experiences in cities that may not be on your radaryet. Fashion bloggers Camille Desrosiers, from Montréal, and Gracie Carroll, from Toronto, explore the Chiado District, known as the beating heart of Lisbon. It’s a fascinating mash-up of old Lisbon, with its old world architecture architecture and charming squares, and the energy of the new, as local fashion and beauty shops bloom under the demand from the city’s young style set.

Sip coffee at Café à Brasileira, one of the oldest cafés in the city, before discovering contemporary boutiques like Organii, which specializes in organic cosmetics. The Chiado District is also a must for foodies, with a variety of five-star restaurants.

Camille and Gracie visit one business that epitomizes this mix: Loja Da Burel. They learn how traditional Portuguese wool is made into modern accessories. The travellers end the day at Cantinho Do Avillez, where they sample cuisine by Lisbon’s local star chef, José Avillez.
