Exchange your boring outfit for a chic new look at the indie boutique ELA Selected. Gabriela Holscher-Di Marco opened the first ELA store in 1977 and her bold unisex designs quickly gained a following among the music set: Kraftwerk wore her shirts and ties for the cover of their 1978 album, The Man-Machine, and Dexy’s Midnight Runners sported her designs in the “Come on Eileen” video. Along with her own line of geometric, one-size-fits-all clothing—sold only here in Düsseldorf—the store, set in the fashionable Unterbilk district, carries hip independent German, Dutch and Scandinavian labels like Butterfly Soulfire, Henrik Vibskov and the Girl and the Gorilla. Just a few minutes’ walk is Lorettostraße, lined with trendy shops and smart restaurants, including the particularly tasty (and beautifully decorated) Japanese eatery Adjito, at Lorettostraße 18.
