Top Rated Shopping in Lausanne

The Liberty Shop

The Liberty Shop is a women’s clothing boutique carrying international and Swiss designers. The store is a small temple to minimalism, and carries classic styles along with a few contemporary ones. In addition to clothing, visitors will find carefully collected accessories, and decorative items like posters, journals, and pillows. White walls and light wood dominate the space, while splashes of color come from the pastel color of a shirt or the flower pattern on a throw rug. The store collaborates with local artisans, including some who make leather goods with traditional tanning techniques.

Monsieur Alain

This men’s clothing and accessories boutique store carries brands from all over the world, though it shows a slight favoritism for those from France, Sweden, and Japan. The store is small, but packed with elegant clothing that adheres to its governing philosophy of “sober originality,” which refers to the style of a city gentleman. If you ask the owner, Mr. Alain himself, he will carefully describe each item in his store, and why he has chosen to sell it. An inspired collection of rucksacks and backpacks from local designers make a visit to Mr. Alain worthwhile.

Rue de Bourg

This lovely small street runs through part of central Lausanne with Rue de La Paix on the east and Place Saint-François on the west. One of the city’s premier high-end shopping locations, the street is bustling with cafes, shops, alleyways, charming buildings, and cobblestones. It’s a pleasure to walk through and a nice place to rub arms with locals. Many stores on the street, which is one of the oldest in the city, sells goods from international luxury brands.

Chocolatier Blondel

Walking into Chocolatier Blondel is a bit like walking into a chocolate heaven. The small shop on the cobblestoned Rue de Bourg is surrounded by larger, louder shops in the city center, but it might be one of the best hidden gems in the area. Trays upon trays of chocolate confections of all kinds and varieties line the shelves of the store. These include dark, milk, and white chocolate mixed with nuts, teas, herbs, and dried fruits. The chocolate can be sold in slabs, by weight, or in gift boxes.

Moinat Antiques and Interior Design

Charles-Emile Moinat is an antique dealer and interior design store that has been a family business for several generations. The store, which is inside a pretty building near the waterfront of Lac Lèman, has an impressive collection of antiques including beds, clocks, outdoor furniture, lighting, paintings, mirrors, and many one-of–a-kind items. There a sort of regal elegance to the shop and the aesthetics of the furniture. Visitors are more likely to find a sophisticated 19th Century former family heirloom than a mid-century gem. The store draws antique hunters and designers form Lausanne and abroad, and also offers interior design, carpet and curtain installation, and picture hanging services.

Soda

Soda is a hidden gem of a vintage clothing and jewelry boutique. To venture inside means to wander into a curiosity shop with impressive collections of retro clothing and accessories. Rails and shelves are loaded with mid-century dresses, patterned blouses, leather jackets, unique purses, striking hats, and patent leather shoes. The styles run the gamut from 1950s movie diva to 1970s jean queen, complete with sun-sized sunglasses and belts. Everything about the store is stylized, from the herringbone wooden floors, to the brocade patterns on the wall and plush furniture. Soda seems a little out of step with Lausanne, which prefers subdued styles, but it’s a good thing it exists.
