An upmarket department store for classy shoppers with plastic.
Lausanne shoppers certainly love their department stores, but the elegant Bon Génie is definitely a cut above the norm. Located on the central Place St François, this store is a retail giant with the serene atmosphere and fashion edge of an exclusive boutique. The shop's understated, classy presentation attests to its upmarket nature – as do the eye-opening prices. Browse through an extensive array of big name labels, with contemporary designers such as Carven, See by Chloé and Isabel Marant, plus classic elegance by Givenchy, Lanvin and Cavalli. Then grab a window table at the smart third floor BG Cafe for a spot of high-class people-watching.
