Austria’s capital Vienna is known for many things–most of all their mediaeval and baroque architecture, musical legacy, and a charming atmosphere. It’s a city that incorporates the new with the old, and always has a cosy place at hand in the form of a coffee shop or wine tavern.
The Viennese fashion scene also has a lot to offer: feminine silhouettes, elegance designs, and sophisticated timeless pieces. The city is home to many independent boutiques and concept stores which are a must-visit all year round. We have AiSPi-ed our favourites in collaboration with The Cult Curators, so for your next trip to Vienna, bookmark the most stylish places.
This is a boutique concept store that combines fashion with art, housing edgy and emerging labels, as well as local Austrian designers. This high-end avant-garde boutique was founded by a South Korean native Myung il Song. Today it has made its mark by pushing creative boundaries in the way they present their collections. Flirting with fashion and art, the store’s atmosphere reflects that of a gallery mixed with a sophisticated store. Song provides a consistent and carefully curated range of fashion brands that capture true Viennese aesthetic.
