Who we are:
'The style stories' is an upbeat blog- magazine promoting the best of creators, products, brands, artists and trailblazers making an impact in the world of Swiss style today.
Primarily we aim to fill the void in the marketplace on the coverage and promotion of Swiss creators within the local media. 'The style stories' address this gap with soul, smartness and an unwavering respect for design and craftsmanship. We provide modern, yet modest content to the underserved public who are curious about trends and evolution in the creative world of Switzerland and beyond.
The magazine is a trend- mix between niche and popular, originality and mainstream, independent and commercial, Swiss and elsewhere.
We embrace both unique, offbeat trends as well as the mainstream manifestations believing that both together appeal best to our readers, and allow us a wider exploration of creativity.
