Karl Lagerfeld is a regular. This shop, which seems to have stepped out of an old black and white film, sells custom-made hats and caps. They are made using a traditional method, on site, by Jürgen Eifler.
Trained in France, Belgium, and Germany, he opened this address in 1984. Time seems to have stopped the walls are covered with old photos and old hat boxes in an age before fashion and accessories fell victim to mass production. In this nice mess, everything seems in its place: hat moulds, Ecuador straw for the panamas, felt rolls, and fabrics.
