The Concept Store
In 2008 the nationally renowned concept store Apropos from Cologne opened a dependance in Düsseldorf. And it's been a big competition for all those exclusive boutiques on legendary Königsallee. The store offers a true luxury shopping excess on over 950 square metres. Apart from fashion, accessories, jewellery, books, fragrances and cosmetics you also find beautiful objects for your home. The shoe division gets women with a blessed wallet into top gear because they do not only find high heels with the characteristic red sole by Christian Louboutin, but also heels, sandals, lace-up shoes and boots by famous labels like Alexander Wang, Bottega Veneta, Jimmy Choo, Pretty Balerinas, Pedro Garcia, Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent. The golden bar-lounge offers refreshments during an overheated shopping marathon. Who would possibly still need to go to Königsallee?
Even well-travelled, experienced shoppers will feel their breath being taken away as they enter this store. In this extraordinarily elegant atmosphere you will find even more extraordinary and elegant clothing pieces on offer. The more glamorous, the better. Norman Icking doesn't just produce stunning bridal wear, but also festive pieces for every occasion. What is the criteria here? It has to be exquisite, of high quality and refined. If it glitters and rustles, then that's even better. The creations are full of fantasy and are offbeat, therefore intended for more sophisticated and confident customers. Names like Nanini, Julian Macdonald and Anya Hindmacher can also be found in-store. If it's all a bit too fancy for you, then maybe you should drop in at Norman Icking's Streetwear Shop at Hermann Strasse 23, where you can do some more down-to-earth shopping.
