I don´t know, Munich is by far too conservative, established in a sense. Most of the shops don´t dare to buy special pieces from the designers, it´s all rather safe and conservatively selected. What a pity that the Helmut Lang store will close down, his shoes were modern and very nicely cut, without all those fuzzy little details like small buckles, bows or rhinestones.
I´d still say that Berlin is probably the BEST city in Germany for shopping, the shops are all very selected and well-edited, from the streetwise shops to the more exclusive designer stockists. Quartier 2006 / department store has all the fancy footwear designers, from Christian Louboutin to Manolo Blahnik and Alaia, and there are also shops from the YSL, Gucci, Etro and Vuitton in the same building. They also have a mail-order catalogue if you can´t come by yourself. Münzstrasse in the Mitte-district has several great designer shops that should as well have some assorted footwear to go with their collections, try Apartment for ultra-limited-edition sneakers but also the latest N.D.C. made by hand/ Undercover styles. A new shop that recently opened has Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten and several other designers. Then finally, there´s Andreas Murkudis who stocks Belgian designers (and shoes).
