Balù Donna, Balù WM and Balù Glam. Three shops a stone’s throw from each other, containing three worlds that range from the rediscovery of classic, yet always innovative designs to the search for true stylistic flair. But there is one trait that all three share, and that is originality. For thirty years, whatever the season, we have presented an innovative selection of clothing, footwear and accessories for men and women. Our love of fashion and excellence allows us to offer dreams and poetry in fabric form, including some unique, one-off garments.
Borgonovo is a prestigious shop born from the passion and dedication to fashion. With a distinct sophistication and a brilliant taste, it offers you a selection of the best brands. In a modern environment, it is always up with the latest trends.
The story of our clothing and accessories boutique goes beyond a mere history spanning fifty years. The maxims that have distinguished us for over the last half century remain the same: a forward-thinking mindset, an innate sense of originality and a nose for creating strongly individual looks. Loyal clients come back again and again for that special empathetic touch, personified in our three ladies – Adriana Pancaldi, Isabella and Erica – who dedicate themselves to meeting their client’s each and every request with genuine interest, so much so that for many clients they have become valued confidantes and advisors.
Since 1944, Charly Zenger’s story has been one of excellence and tradition, an expression of the most refined art of jewellery and watch-making. Diamonds and precious stones of exceptional beauty are selected, matched and cut in our Gemological Centre: they are turned into timeless jewels of unique design, icons of luxurious elegance that shine with an intensity of colour and brilliance which is peerless. In our new boutiques in Ascona in Via Borgo, craftsmen work with the greatest skill and passion, paying attention to every detail and creating personalized designs to satisfy the client’s wishes.
Over the past twenty years, the Rüegsegger Family has developed its own philosophy – whose central theme is uniqueness – by paying meticulous attention to detail and sourcing the very best amongst international fashion brands. Each of us has our own distinct personality, along with our culture, personal interests and hobbies that go to define the context in which we choose to live but above all we each have our unique sparkle. The shopping experience with LifeStyle encompasses all those elements within a friendly ambiance, while the knowledge and expertise shared by Francis and Marcel will make for some extra special moments.
