Offering up three full floors of luxury minimalist womenswear, this boutique was local designer Jil Sander's flagship and supposedly carries the label's entire line. Though colors have gotten brighter in recent years, Sander's trademark remains elegant, no-frippery cuts and fine fabrics, in collections that are made to mix and match. Recent years have brought business misfortunes, including an unhappy buyout in spring 2006 (and recent resale) by Prada. Her minimalist line continues, however, in the capable hands of Belgian designer Raf Simons. Not for the faint of wallet: There is no "bridge" line of affordable fashions with Sander's name on it, so be prepared for extraordinary prices.

Closed Sundays.
