Palmey glasses chain

Wearing your shades on your head ruins your hair and can look a bit silly. But what else can you do with them? It’s too much trouble to put them in their case every time, and it’s risky to just leave them lying around. Zurich label Palmey has the answer – their glasses chains mean your sunglasses hang comfortably around your neck, ready to put on whenever you need them.

Dress from Jungle Folk

It’s great that bathing areas stay open all day long. It means you can enjoy a refreshing dip before or after work or during your lunch break. If time is tight, just wear your swimming costume under your normal clothes. It looks stylish with a summer dress like this one from local brand Jungle Folk.

Scrunchie by Zou Zou

If you have long hair, you probably tie it up in summer. Otherwise it can be really annoying – it’s too hot when you’re sunbathing and it gets wet when swimming. Create the perfect chignon with this pretty scrunchie from Zou Zou. This local label buys its fabrics from Japan and Europe. The scrunchies are then made on the shores of Lake Zurich.
