Jakob Schlaepfer becomes part of Zurich Champions

Hyatt Loves Local campaign in Zurich, a collaboration between Park Hyatt Zurich, Zurich Champions and local entrepreneurs, has seen the city’s luxury businesses come together to showcase what Zurich has to offer to national and international visitors.

In Season 2, visitors will see, for example, how Jakob Schlaepfer fabrics combine local heritage with daring and exciting designs to add a little sparkle to fashion catwalks around the world, and why their fabrics grace the outfits of people including Michelle Obama, Queen Elizabeth II, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift. A second example focuses on one of, if not the best leather craftsman in the world, Atelier Peter Nitz. Based here in Zurich, he produces wonderful, bespoke items for clients, all 100% handmade with no machines. The message we want to send is clear, Zurich’s luxury businesses are ready to welcome you back and provide a unique and unforgettable experience,” commented Mounir Khouzami, Founder of the Zurich Champions.
