Vienna Store Opening Party

Iris and Valentin von Arnim are pleased to be represented by a flagship store in Vienna, in addition to their store in Kampen on Sylt, Munich and Düsseldorf. The new store in Vienna - the first outside Germany - opened on 9 November with around 300 guests, the latest collections and a lot of Hanseatic flair.

"I love Vienna and have some good friends in this wonderful city. I was really looking forward to the opening - but especially to the people of Vienna". 


More than 300 invited guests and friends celebrated the opening of the first Austrian store with Iris von Arnim and her son Valentin, including: Elisabeth Gürtler, Mavie Hörbiger, Annouk Lamm Annouk, Aino Laberenz, Nicole Beutler, Aaron Friesz, Angela Stief, Fanny Stapf, Teresa Vogl, Maria Schachermayer, Vanessa & Hannes Steinmetz-Bundy etc.

"Austria is very close to my heart for many reasons. I love travelling to the homeland of my wife, who comes from Lech - and I love Vienna: its people, its culture, the joy of beautiful things. I would move here immediately. And just as the Viennese love togetherness, we are all about the melange of haptics: cashmere and precious natural materials. You should touch and feel, be allowed to get close to us and feel the special things Iris and our team create."  


The guests were entertained by one of Hamburg's best-known shanty choirs, there were tastings from the Hamburg fish market and champagne from Virginie T. x Iris von Arnim. We discussed the store architecture, the colours of the season, the iconic rainbow sweater reinterpreted especially for the opening and what the Iris von Arnim brand is all about: personality.
