Karl Lagerfeld, one of Germany’s most revered designers, is best known for his womenswear, especially the pieces created during his time as creative director of Chanel. His menswear also displays the ingenuity – and elements of surprise – that one might find in his female-oriented catwalk collections. This year, the designer’s diffusion line, Lagerfeld, launches in Wertheim Village.
For a high-tech selection of kitchenware, visit the newly opened Zwilling store. From cutlery sets to cookery gadgets, inside the Wertheim Village boutique you’ll find everything you need to take yourself from cookery amateur to professional chef. If culinary creations aren’t your speciality, perhaps you’d prefer to invest in a Zwilling manicure set for yourself or as a gift for a well-groomed family member.
A favourite of Michelle Obama, Michael Kors’ ladylike dresses are simply cut but incredibly flattering. His menswear lines are similarly well cut yet unfussy. Choose navy cargo trousers, breathable linen shirts and V-neck merino sweaters.
