Munich Posh

Despite the fact that jeans wear well in most of Munich, there are pockets of the city that seem ultra chic. One of those grand promenades is Brienner Strasse, where it connects with Odeonsplatz. You will find exclusive galleries, antique shops, cafes, and top of the line clothing stores like this shot of the Hackett Store. Brienner Strasse is likely considered Munich’s 2nd shopping street after the Haute Couture center on Maximillian Strasse, which is home to the famed “schicki-micki” as the city’s fashionable set are known. In fact, Brienner Strasse is one of the four royal avenues constructed under the reign of Maximilian I around 1812. Today, it is simply the trail of the jet-set crowd.

You've captured the feel of the street perfectly! I'd feel ever so scruffy if I went there!

She almost looks furtive as if she's checking to see if she's being observed -:) Clearly she is being watched from both sides. Teach her to wear Levis!
