If you are a real fashion lover of unique designs, whether it’s clothing, jewelry or shoes, then Weltenbuerger is the perfect store for you.
The high end boutique Weltenbuerger (which is German and means “world citizen” in English) is nestled between small non-chain stores on N. Vermont Avenue in Los Feliz. With its narrow storefront and window to the street you could almost miss it. But upon walking inside, you enter a world of unique designs, gorgeous clothing and a gallery like store setting.
The owner and designer Bryan Sanderson, a German native from Stuttgart, has a good sense of style and is very knowledgeable about fashion trends and the global design scene.
I personally love this store for its amazing variety and selection of mainly young international and innovative designers, not to mention the great selection of Berlin designers, which you can’t find anywhere else in LA. He carries brands, such as Hien Le, AVR and JuliaandBen from Berlin – or Tanya Aguiniga and Jesse Kamm, both local LA designers.
Among all the international designers he also sells his own beautiful collection, W /// by Weltenbuerger, a great collection with simplistic, minimalist silhouettes and high quality raw materials.
And last but not least, the good selection of vintage apparel, which blends in perfectly with all the new lines. The vintage collection seems rather timeless than retro and sometimes you can find gems from previous collections of big name designers, such as Issey Miyake or Vivienne Westwood.
