Fashion… ok when you hear the word fashion, Frankfurt is probably not a city that jumps to mind, but hold it right there. You might be surprised. [AND: Fashion week will take place HERE in 2021! ] This is coming from someone that – one – loves clothing and is a stylist. Two – lived in London with the best fashion brands, shops, etc at my finger tips and – three – is always on the lookout for the best of the best. So today I want to share with you some of my finds. Of course some of these may seem pretty obvious but who doesn’t need a little reminding every now and then right? And for those of you that are new to this wonderful city, then you need this list.
Text: The Frankfurt Edit
I’ve categorised my list by: physical fashion boutiques, online boutiques, secondhand and vintage shops, newer and smaller brands and kids. Let’s not forget about the little folks! Also please be aware this is by no means an exhaustive list, if I had to list all my favourites we’d have a novel on our hands. However, I needed to put some kind of structure to this and I find it’s best with a small list of five. Short and sweet is my motto.
It’s minimal interior, abundance of light and art gallery appeal is the place to go to for many of your Scandic brands. You will not walk out empty handed.
Maria Frankfurt | Fahrgasse 10 | 60311
Walking into 2nd home is like walking into the most curated home you have ever been too. Every piece in this shop has been carefully placed to perfection. And Maike’s selection of clothing is no different. You’ll find a selection of beautiful dresses, lux skirts, cool t-shirts and jackets for men along with an array of accessories for both.
2nd Home | Vogelsbergstraße 38 | 60316
I’m sure you all know about The Listener, but still I couldn’t possibly leave them off this list. This modern store has the coolest of the cool brands curated to absolute perfection all spread over two floors. You’ll find the hottest brands around along with great gifts and cool finds for your home.
The Listener | Stephanstraße 3 | 60313
When Glore opened it’s doors here in Frankfurt I was beyond excited! Finally, a store focusing on cool sustainable fashion. For those of you that are big into sustainable brands and accessories, this store is for you my friends! PS: they have the coolest socks 🙂
Glore | Oeder Weg 51 |60318
Now let’s talk about Fifty Eight. Here’s the deal with this shop. It’s insanely amazing. The problem: I can’t visit too often as I will most definitely always find something and walk out broke! They carry some of the hottest LUXE brands around and I’m not talking boring LUXE, I’m talking woozier too cool for school LUXE. I wish their store was my closet.
Fifty Eight | Kronberger Straße 19 | 60323
Indian Goods Company
Indian Goods Company brings you the very best brands from India. We’re not talking what you would consider typical Indian. It is rather a curated selection of beautiful modern brands both for your closet and your home.
Hands down Japanese fashion is probably the best out there. Japanese fashion is interesting, most likely oversized, edgy and modern. The N-store brings you a selection of minimal Japanese fashion that works perfectly in anyones wardrobe.
Azita – I love visiting their website. It’s like stepping into a Berlin boutique. Cool, a bit funky with a great selection of Indie brands.
Look no further for your swimwear and yoga wear needs. Designed right here in Frankfurt, the beautiful ladies from Inaska bring you sustainable wear for your mat and for the beach.
Let’s not forget about the stylish men in our lives. For all the fashion conscience men, Uebervart is for you. From Comme des Garcons to Acne Studios to Stussy they have it. I get excited just thinking about it!
