Fritz Kohli, a non-Burgdorf resident, of all people, opened a men’s fashion shop in the upper town of Burgdorf in 1955, which would subsequently write down many beautiful aspects of Burgdorf’s history and tradition, and which today is as indispensable to the townscape of Burgdorf as the town hall or the railway station.
In 1993 Koni Kunz reopened the Vestita and rebuilt it two years later. The fashion house has been enlarged: more sales space, a Hugo-Boss shop and, for the first time, a shoe assortment. Vestita is no longer just a specialist shop – new accents with unusual festivities, competitions and now a fashion night (which has almost become a tradition again) complete the clothing assortment.
So it’s not surprising that not even ten years after its reopening, Vestita becomes completely new again, this time for a new generation: the V3 store for teenagers and the young-at-heart. Soon afterwards, the Kunz family had the opportunity to take over a third shop under the arcades in Kyburger. The idea of a women’s offer had long been in Koni Kunz’s mind. After he was able to convince his wife, they tackled the third rebuilding in a row.
Today Vestita follows the current trend of concept stores; in addition to the assortment of women’s and men’s clothing, glasses, bags, jewellery, cushions, lanterns, cookbooks, writing utensils, crockery and cosmetics, candles, cards and small gifts are also available.
Since autumn 2018 everything has been ticking right at Vestita. By chance Stefanie and Koni Kunz met Reto Baumgartner through a customer. It quickly became clear to them that both were pursuing the same ambitious goals: to be there for their customers as a small family business, to have time and to stand behind these products with enthusiasm. From then on, Vestita’s fire also burns for watches. They tick differently. “The cooperation with RB Baumgartner and their watches, which are manufactured in Aarberg, is simply fun,” say Stefanie and Koni Kunz pleased.
