Few brands execute embellishment and print as well as Prada. Metzingen has recently welcomed the Italian fashion house and its striking designs, which are sure to charm visitors in 2013.
Michael Kors’ ladylike dresses, a favourite of Michelle Obama, are simply cut and incredibly becoming. His menswear lines are similarly flattering and unfussy. Choose navy cargo trousers, breathable linen shirts and V-neck merino wool sweaters.
For a touch of British chic, step into the Hackett store, where impeccably dressed gentlemen are catered for with polished blazers and chinos for summer parties, or rugby shirts and cords for laidback weekend strolls.
For the ultimate in luxurious leather, visit the Coach store. Famous for its 1973 ‘duffle sac’ handbag design and its horse and carriage logo, the brand has expanded since its foundation in 1941 to produce outerwear, shoes, watches and sunglasses. Choose from carryalls and duffle bags in vibrant purple, turquoise and hot pink.
