The famous French brand American Vintage is opening its first store in Switzerland – and SPG Intercity Zurich AG has secured a top location for it in Zurich’s trendy Niederdorf district.

American Vintage is a young and successful fashion label from Paris. Established in 2005 by French designer Mickaël Azoulay, the company produces men’s and ladies’ streetwear characterised by simplicity and inspired by American trends. It does not yet have any stores in Switzerland, but this is now set to change with the support of SPG Intercity Zurich AG, which has found an outstanding location for American Vintage at Münstergasse 21 in the heart of Zurich. The retail space was previously occupied by Liebeskind. The new flagship store is due to open in time for Christmas.

SPG Intercity Zurich AG is a specialist in helping foreign brands to set up in Switzerland: “With our international network and local roots, we are the perfect partner for companies wishing to expand,” said Brandenberg.
