Treasure Hunting on Kirchengasse: For the Eclectic Urbanite

When you turn onto Kirchengasse from the commercial droves of Mariahilferstraße, Café Mentone marks the cultural shift. Now partially closed to traffic, Kirchengasse features a transitional mix of small, traditional stores – a porcelain shop like a trip back in time, a crowded electronics place with shelves piled high, a uniform supplier – and newer […]

DuDaa: For the Love of Shoes

DuDaa: For the Love of Shoes

Most people take about 6,000 steps per day, in sneakers, stilettos, ballerinas, or boots. For some, shoes are a functional necessity, and for the fashion-conscious, a way of life. “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world,” Marilyn Monroe once said. For years, young women watched Sex and the City, imagining […]

StilRad°°: Design for the Urbane Bicyclist

Our Cup of Tea: Treasure Hunt, Sep. 2012

In a city known for its coffee houses, Vienna residents now gladly sip the once mysterious “herb that the Chinese call tea,” as Imperial Captain Christoph Carl Fernberger von Eggenberg referred to it in 1624. As proof of its success, today, numerous teahouses speckle Vienna’s 1st District. Let’s begin at Schönbichler on the Wollzeile (www.schönbichler.at). […]

The Back-Yard Sale: A second-hand stuff party

The Back-Yard Sale: A second-hand stuff party

This time last year, fashion’s entourage of young and old could be found at Pratersauna, gathered around the barbeque and lounging by the pool. One would see vintage polka dot dresses, designer shoes and clunky jewellery scattered around the club-turned-yard-sale for a full day of sun, sangria and a little off-beat shopping. When Stéphanie Cech’s […]

Pippi Longstocking in Pastel

Browsing the shop-windows of “Amateur la Boutique“ on Gumpendorferstraße will put a blissfully goofy grin on your face! Their droll monster dolls and nostalgically gold-framed serigraphs of jumping rabbits and smirking ducks are predestined to recall fond childhood memories. In my case, I remember watching the spectacular adventures of Swedish author Astrid Lindgren’s feisty, superhuman […]
