The concept

BLK & YLW is dedicated to local creation and highlights creators from the Geneva region, whose products are manufactured in an ethical, sustainable and gender-neutral manner in Switzerland, Europe and Asia.

BLK & YLW brings together fashion, accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, decorative objects, art and organizes events and creative workshops. It’s a real place to live!

BLK & YLW brings together around fifty creators.

BLK & YLW selects creators according to several criteria: local development, talent, crush, approach, manufacturing, daring, originality, price, quality, etc.

Le concept store BLK & YLW réunit plus d’une cinquantaine de créateur·ice·s au cœur de la vieille ville de Genève. Les amateurs de mode et de tendances y trouveront un véritable trésor : une sélection éclectique de vêtements pour homme, femme et enfant, des cosmétiques naturels, le meilleur du design et de la décoration d’intérieur, et bien d’autres créations tendance. Depuis son ouverture, notre magasin de vêtements est devenu un repère incontournable pour les genevois·es en quête de plaisir ou d'idées-cadeaux originales.

De Genève à Lausanne, en passant par Montreux, Zürich et Berne, BLK&YLW rencontre et sélectionne les designers et les entrepreneur·es suisses les plus talentueux pour faire découvrir leurs créations originales, authentiques et écoresponsables. 

Notre concept store est bien plus qu'un simple magasin de vêtements, c'est une véritable vitrine de la créativité suisse, où chaque pièce raconte une histoire unique.
