What’s in the closet of Clara Alonso? Madrid based Argentinian former Disney Channel star shares her style and shopping secrets as she takes us shopping in Barcelona.
We already got to know a bit of Clara from browsing her Instagram and selecting pieces that embrace her classic and feminine style for our shopping date in Barcelona. She is the type of beauty you can dress in a simple white kaftan or a linen jumpsuit and she will glow. Clara looks good in anything that doesn’t outshine her warm personality. Even with rings being her favourite accessory, the first thing you notice about Clara when she walks in the room is her smile.
It’s an exciting time for Clara, who only recently moved to Madrid from Argentina and is loving the change. Her favourite style city is the fashion capital Milan but she loves shopping in Paris, the enchanting city filled with authentic boutiques at every corner. What she loves the most in Barcelona is the beach, especially now when you can enjoy the breeze and sunshine to the fullest. We introduced Passage BCN to Clara, a shopping haven hidden in the tiny Sarrià streets where she unveiled to us her favourite style essentials and shopping experiences.
Did you know that Clara’s favourite color is white, and her favourite souvenir is a music box she bought for her grandmother? Clara’s favourite gifts are those that have a meaning like a trip to discover a new city and her favourite style items are classics that she can wear in an out of season year after year like her black jacket with sparkles for the evening. Although she likes flat shoes, especially for the day where she has a lot of commuting to do for her appointment she would never wear platform wedges. Clara is a stiletto girl.
Clara loves discovering new stores on her trips to different destinations but she sources her style inspiration from Instagram. One of her style icons is Olivia Palermo, whom she loves because of her chic femininity, and strikingly similar to Olivia Palermo- recent Oscar winner for supporting actress in The Danish Girl, Alicia Vikander. Apart from Instagram Clara loves browsing online shops even though she thinks it’s dangerous because you can easily start buying everything from your sofa!
Clara’s style is not ‘Unparisian’, and you know what I mean by this if you have read “How To Be Parisian”. Her look is effortlessly chic, where style details are subtle but relevant and a lot of care and attention is paid on ‘behind the scenes” styling- like beauty products Clara adores and has difficulty separating a favourite one but if it had to be one then it is the concealer.
