FunkyForty Favourite Shops September’21 Update

Hi Everyone,

Sitting in Paris as I write this months Funky Forty Favourite Shops update.

September is such a fun month with all the new season items in the shops and of course Fashion Weeks which are slowly coming back to normal again. At least Milan was – Paris is still largely digital so I’m curious what the next couple of days will bring….

This month I am super excited to be featuring a new store Yael Nadiv Jewelry. A real secret discovery.

Yael is a Zurich based designer with the most awesome collection of horn jewellery. Exclusively hand made and designed by Yael herself.   Her concept being to make fabulous statement pieces which are timeless, beautiful and will turn any outfit into a statement.

If you are in Zurich do make the effort to visit Yael in her showroom. Alternatively do check out her online store – international shipping!

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.

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.

However there is much more to Caroline than handbags. DO check out her site for fabulous art and exclusive time pieces too. She even has special interior design projects!


7. Golden Carrot Shoes and More

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. 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 in tv I am wearing the ocean. But best is you check out the online store for yourself: Suenia Zurich

Super cute pieces from only CHF 39 each.


10.  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.

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.
