Frequently Asked Questions 

 

1.PRODUCTS

How do I find my size?

Review the « Details » tab of the product you are interested in buying and review our size guide.

 

What if the product is sold out?

Most of our styles are offered as permanent collections (except limited editions), so sold-out products will be available again as soon as we receive the new stock. In order to know when the item is back in stock, please create an account with us (if you haven’t already) and put your name on our waiting list. As soon as the style is available again, we will let you know so that you can be first in line to place your order!

 

In what currency are your prices?

All of our listed prices are in Swiss francs (CHF) and in Euros (€). We charge in Swiss francs so we recommend double checking the current exchange rate for your local currency to get a better estimate of the final cost of your purchase.

Many banks and credit cards collect a foreign transaction fee for handling transactions in a foreign currency. We are not responsible for any fees.

 

 

2. PAYMENT AND TAXES

How do I pay for my order?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express credit cards, wire transfer and payments with PayPal. All payments will be made in Swiss francs.

 

How are taxes and duties applied on orders outside Switzerland?

The prices listed on our website do not include shipping, duties or taxes. Depending where you live, your country’s customs office may apply additional charges to your order, such as import fees, declaration fees, import duties & tariffs, and local sales tax.

All fees required for customs clearance are the sole responsibility of the customer. They will be charged upon arrival by our local shipping partner.

From time to time, a customs agent may delay the delivery of packages at their discretion. For more information on customs, duties, taxes and other import charges, please contact your local customs office.
