FunkyForty Favourite Shops August’21 Update

Hi Everyone,

Another month already gone by since my last Funky Forty Favourite Shops update. August being the big vacation  month of the year for many. It’s also the month when the new Fall/Winter collections start to arrive in the shops so there are plenty of new things to discover.

The FunkyForty Favourite shops page contains a select amount of favourite shops of mine. I monitor them monthly and report on new items/trends happening to keep you all up to date. This page will always be kept limited in number and only contain those shops which I really love.

I’m particularly excited at my lovely new store this month. Power Meals, the perfect solution for nutritious meals and busy lifestyles in one. meals start at just CHF 12/meal depending on how many you order at once. I also have a special discount code – funky20 – giving you 20% off your first order. A fabulous opportunity for my Switzerland based readers.

In case you missed it I really recommend reading and finding out all about the benefits of Oxygen for the skin – here.

To buy products online:


5. Marina Anouilh

Situated in the heart of Gstaad’s central shopping street. Marina Anouilh is a concept store with a certain magic to it. Created by Marina Anouilh herself, every corner tells a new story. You walk in, see something you like, discover the story and your heart melts.

See some new in items here:


6. Caroline Dechamby

Visiting Paris one Fashion Week several years ago was when first came across a selection of wonderful bags by Caroline Dechamby – a Dutch self taught artist living in the wonderful Swiss mountain area of Crans Montana. We have been friends ever since.

If you like art then having one of Caroline Dechamby’s bags is almost a must have as it quite simply is the same as having a piece of art on your arm.


7. Golden Carrot Shoes and More

All I can say is woop woop a fabulous Fall collection has arrived in store – it is really worth dropping in to check out the beautiful new collections. See bellow for a small preview.

8.  Maru Design

MARU Design is a relatively new online interior design store started by Liisa and Laura:

In their one words they say:

“- sisters, mothers, professionals from consulting and marketing and deeply passionate about Estonian independent design. Nice to meet you!

There is a lovely sustainable story behind each brand they stock – see more here.

I’m currently in love with the super soft and reasonably priced Alpaca Scarves and Shawls.


9. Landolt

Situated right in the heart of Zurich by Paradeplatz, next to the Savoy Hotel and opposite Gucci. Landolt-Arbenz is an exclusive pen and stationary shop. Unique within the whole of Switzerland. A magical world of writing instruments, leather goods and stationary unfolds before your very eyes as you enter the store.

I love their current Instagram pictures – each day is another trip through Europe with a pen. Can you spot the pen in each of the 6 pictures?


10. Suenia Zurich

Siena Zurich jewellery has been created by two Spanish sisters with a passion for fashion. One of them now lives in Switzerland and so Suenia Zurich was born.

I love the delicate pieces which tell so many different stories depending how you combine them. For me it feels like I am wearing the ocean. But best is you check out the online store for yourself: Suenia Zurich

In addition to jewellery they have a collection of shoppers – these are my current love affair. I own two, a blue and pink one. Each time I take one to town I get stopped by so many people admiring the bag. Super handy for hiding Bahnhofstr shopping – haha!


11.  Marcus Marienfeld bespoke glasses

All glasses are handmade in Switzerland and you can even get your own bespoke glasses made by Marcus himself.

If you’re visiting Zermatt anytime soon be sure to visit his adorable showroom on the way to the Kleiner Matterhorn.

12. La Tienda

Situated in Uitikon Waldegg – a 13 minute train ride from Zurich’s main station. This is one shop where you will find beautiful quality timeless yet trendy pieces that will last. Every label stocked having a special story behind it.

The La Tienda online store is always open and if there is something you are looking for but can’t find you can simply call. Shipping outside of Switzerland also available at extra shipping costs.
