The fashion label Thema Selection and its outlet in Oberdorf, a Zürich neighbourhood, made quite a splash back in the 1970s in the placid city along the Limmat River. The label attracted notice with its unique style and eccentric fashion shows, and the shop itself became a favourite haunt of Zürich’s arts scene over the years. The shop and label creators Katharina Bebié, Ursula Rodel and Sissi Zöbeli were joined a few years later by Elisabeth Bossard, then Christa Derungs, and now Sonnhild Kestler. The backdrop to the history of this avant-garde enterprise is recounted here by the shop’s founders as well as their companions along the way, who were then, and remain to this day, part of that special zest for life.
With texts by Elisabeth Bronfen, Katharina Tietze, Martin Jaeggi, Jacqueline Burckhardt, Laurence Frey, This Brunner, Sibylle Berg, Walter Keller, Bice Curiger, and many more. With an insert by Ursula Rodel in German.
