One should think Stuttgart is over satisfied with shopping malls after the Gerber and the Milaneo have opened their gates within the last weeks. However, yesterday evening, at the pre-opening of Fluxus – the temporary concept mall – I met hundreds of people who craved for another, alternative shopping experience.
You won’t find any of the big, international brands here, but that’s part of the idea. Fluxus consists of 16 shops and Cafés owned by local retailers, designers, artists and, let’s face it, awesome people. So if you’re looking for something special or a vintage product (yep, there are second hand shops, too) or you need to find an extraordinary present, Fluxus is the place to visit.
It was very crowded at the pre-opening yesterday and due to the public holiday, you weren’t allowed to purchase anything (big bummer by the way – but good for my wallet ), so I only got an idea of the different types of shops. Here are some impressions I would like to share with you guys:
If you like retro fashion or second hand stuff, you will love “Mademoiselle YéYé”…
… and OBSCÜR:
One of the shops I will definitely check out again is “Temps”.
If you’re looking for fun stuff and presents, check out “superjuju”…
… “Design Kiosk”…
…and – if the person you want to give the present to is under 15 – “StEYBE für Kinder”:
And if you’re looking for something really special (for yourself or someone else), why not get a design clock by “Biegert & Funk”?!
I LOVE those clocks! They have them in all sorts of languages – even Swabian and Swiss German!!
It was a nice but veeery crowded pre-opening event and I am keen on coming back for some real shopping
