Anyone working in the corporate world  here in Zurich will know how difficult it can be to find a nice suit that fits just right and has the characteristics you’re looking for.

Claire from byclaire.ch has experienced just that so set up a business dedicated to creating unique clothes for the unique woman.

2. Rumour

Zurich Shopping Off the Beaten Track

Rumour is a lovely shop owned by Anna Luisa who was eager to serve us prosecco and lovely chocolates from the chocolatier next door (Max chocolatier, fast getting a reputation for being Switzerland’s best!).

Currently nestled close to Saint Peters Church in one week she will be moving to avecNono – Europaallee 33 where two fashion forces are joining together.

Stunning jumpsuit  – Brenda looks amazing in it!

Launched in November 2016, Rumour offers a carefully selected selection of contemporary womenswear from the collections of hard-to-find designers from all over the world. Many of the featured designers are exclusive to Rumour within Switzerland.

This is the one shop that seriously has something for everyone at very reasonable prices…from festive clothing to knitwear and accessories.

3. Schuhe G31

G31 is an adorable shoe shop down Bleicherweg with specialty brands you wont find anywhere else. Either Gabrielle the owner will be there or one of her shop assistants – ask for an explanation and story about the designers.

Let yourself be taken away into a magical world of shoes and handbags.

Lovely silver bag spotted by Myrta.

If you are ever in need of shoes with matching handbag, this is certainly the shop to go. Sometimes I feel Gabrielle simply knows more about future fashion than anyone else as her styles are those guaranteed to remain on the hot list for the following year too!
