Located near River Rhine next to Johanniterbrücke, in the centre of Basel’s most innovative neighbourhood when it comes to design and art, you find a small shop called Marinsel. The English translation of the slogan might be something like „A Space for Fashion and Things Related“. And what’s that, exactly?
Marinsel exhibits over 50 labels, most of them Swiss, all of them young and relatively unknown. And that’s a good thing: because these labels surf the highest waves of innovation when it comes to design and fashion. Independent and on the brink of breakthrough, the labels sold at Marinsel represent the latest trends in fashion.
The assortment changes all the time, as Marinsel manager Marianne Mumenthaler is constantly looking for new trends, products and designers. It’s worth having a look every now and then, there is always something new to see.
So next time you think about what to get or what to wear, try Marinsel. You will doubtlessly find something great and cool and trendy and on top, you support young designers and the Swiss fashionscape.
Open Thursday and Friday 2 pm to 7 pm and on Saturdays from 11 am to 5 pm.
