Lufthansa travel reports Frankfurt

 

Frankfurt - Fashion south of the “Main-stream”

A visit to Frankfurt simply has to include Sachsenhausen, which offers something for everyone. There’s the Museum Embankment for Culture vultures, the bar and club district for night owls, and for fresh air fiends, the city has its very own woods… Fashion lovers in search of a distinctive look will be rewarded mainly on Brückenstraße and Wallstraße, where over the past few years more and more young designers have been opening their own, lovingly and individually styled boutiques.

Fashion south of the “Main-stream”

Frauenzimmer

Frauenzimmer:
Unique creations for women, not collections! Fashion designer Natascha Spendics only ever produces one of anything, and her range covers skirts, dresses and tops. Spendics is as good at funky casuals as she is at classic business outfits, and her mother sells very appealing jewelry and accessories at the boutique, too.

Info:
Frauenzimmer: Wallstraße 4, Tel.: +49-(0)69/60 60 71 17. Open: Mon-Fri 11am-7pm, Sat 11am-4pm. www.frauen-zimmer.net
Charlotte am Main

Charlotte am Main:
Gorgeously girly! Designer Charlotte Chiara Köhler specializes in wonderful skirts, dresses and blouses. Although she brings out new collections and unique creations every fall/winter and spring/summer season, her clothes promise to be eminently wearable years from now. Style: timeless, delicate, purist.

Info:
Charlotte am Main: Wallstrasse 26, Tel.: +49-(0)69/97 69 09 03. Open: Mon-Fri 12 noon-7pm, Sat 11am-5pm. www.charlotteammain.de


Blütenstaub

Blütenstaub:
Must haves! No one truly needs anything that crosses the counter here, but most of the articles are simply way too beautiful and frivolous to be left lying in the shop window: accessories, jewelry and fashion from labels like Adelheid, Gretchen, Kiki’s, Pomp-Art, Swarovski and Zinnober.

Info:
Blütenstaub: Wallstraße 26, Tel.: +49-(0)69/60 32 95 99. Open: Tue/Wed 10am-6pm, Thu/Fri 11am-7pm, Sat 11am-4pm. www.bluetenstaub-laden.de


Ich war ein Dirndl

Ich war ein Dirndl:
Vintage, baby! Jutta Haag, the designer at this boutique, started her career riding the retro wave – and created a stream of new models, using old fabrics, often salvaged from second hand clothes, to create original and unique pieces. These days, she also makes the most of brand-new materials, but her dresses, sweaters, shirts, jewelry and cushions have lost none of their creativity. She also stocks articles featuring Frankfurt motifs with a difference that make fantastic souvenirs.

Info:
Ich war ein Dirndl: Hedderichstraße 47, Tel.: +49-(0)69/ 66 12 77 44. Open: Mon-Fri 11am-8pm, Sat 11am-5pm. www.ichwareindirndl.de

designe, kleine!

designe, kleine!:
Shop for rent! No, this store isn’t looking out for a new owner, but for more and more new designers and their accessories, bags, jewelry or other knick-knacks. For 20 euros a month, young designers can rent their own showcase to display – and sell – their works. Who knows, maybe one of the present tenants will be so successful that sooner rather than later, he or she will be able to open their very own boutique in the Brückenstraße district?

Info:
designe, kleine!: Wallstraße 26 (entrance on Brückenstraße), Tel.: +49-(0)177/451 68 24. Open: Mon-Fri 10:30am-7:30pm, Sat 10:30am-5:30pm. www.designe-kleine.de
