Visit Website - La Muse Geneva La Muse Geneva When I moved from London to Geneva a few years ago, I was delighted to discover that the city is actually big enough to stay interesting and just small enough to walk almost anywhere. People are inspiring, international and dynamic, well-traveled and open-minded, so it came as a complete surprise that somehow fashion was lacking behind in comparison. This is how La Muse Boutique was born and how today, only one year later, LA MUSE is becoming the reference for fashion in Geneva, a temple of style for all fashionistas in the heart of Geneva’s old town. La Muse is all about individuality and craftsmanship and creating that special bond between a designer and her/his work and women. For us, each woman is the Muse in her life, creating and inspiring the world around her. Fashion allows her to express who she is and how she feels on her personal journey. This is why we take special care and hand-pick our pieces individually from the world’s top designers and future fashion stars starting with Yohji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood, Boudicca, Ana Sekularac, John Rocha and Hudson Jeans and shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood and Burak Uyan. All designers who are already celebrated in London, New York and Paris and are now for the first time available in Geneva both in-store and online.

Le Bal des Créateurs International Hair Stylist Christophe Durand has returned to Geneva and this time transformed a former gallery into a truly unique hair salon. Christophe’s sense of purpose and passion for his work shows in every single details so coming here for a hair cut is a thoroughly personal and enjoyable experience. The salon offers also make-up sessions, beauty treatments, manicures and massages. Here is where people meet over a hair cut, exchange ideas and are continuously inspired. From the bar serving seriously good drinks to the library (where you will find rare books and international fashion magazines) to the gallery space that regularly features avant-garde exhibitions both for visual and performing arts, you can easily spend a whole afternoon feeling both inspired and part of a serious cool family. Le Bal des Crėateurs events are also a definite highlight on the Geneva Agenda. Not to be missed!
