Top Five Moments From Berlin Fashion WeekLeave a Comment
Where to stay: Soho House
Soho House is one of our favourites, when visiting Berlin, in Germany. The stylish Berlin hotel is ostensibly a private member’s club, but everyone can stay at the hotel, which offers decadent interiors, excellent dining and a rooftop pool, close to Alexanderplatz and Mitte. Besides the cozy bedrooms, you’ll find a library and a private cinema downstairs as well as a gym and an amazing spa.
Where to shop, work & eat: The Store
Spanning the lower level of Soho House Berlin in the city’s Mitte district, you’ll find a new amazing space with a simple name – The Store. Right away you fall in love with this place, not just a store, but a creative area with the perfect mix of art, music, fashion design, furniture, vegan food, literature and a workspace. The founder and creative director, Alex Eagle, really nailed it by creating this place, where you not just want to visit to consume, but here you feel like spending lots of time ( and of course money!).
Where to have dinner: Crackers
Crackers is an absolutely amazing restaurant in Berlin. The food and wine are delicious and the atmosphere is just perfect, and the prices are for everyone. We recommend staying in their grand bar after dinner, having a midnight-drink. Just remember to reserve a table ahead, the place is very popular.
Best show: Dorothee Schumacher
Dorothee Schumacher showed a collection with the perfect authentic 70s feeling combining tradition with a predilection for liberty prints in a graphic symbiosis. The collection is named Limitless Identity and makes you feel that there will not be any limits to where the collection will take you – from fluid dresses to skater gear details and elegant monochrome jumpsuits. If you like German design, you should really take a look at the collections by Dorothee Schumacher.
Best newcomer: Louise Friedlaender
Graduated from the international fashion school ESMOD in Berlin in 2012, Louise Friedlaender is a new performer on the fashion scene in Berlin. Since childhood Louise Friedlaender has travelled around the globe and got into contact with foreign cultures, and this is shown in her charismatic high end fashion collections. Friedlaender’s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection was amazing, with a lot of fascinating details and a cool colour palette with nuances in rusty red, burgundy, white or black, which have some references to a 70s inspiration. The combination of the different materials like knit, wool and silk made the collection very interesting. So if you are looking for something new, we would go for Louise Friedlaender.
