SWISS FASHION NIGHT: NEW TALENT IN THE EMBASSY

SWISS FASHION NIGHT: NEW TALENT IN THE EMBASSY

We are pleased to announce that Berlin Fashion Week has added a new highlight to their calendar this season: Swiss Fashion Night. Fashion designers from all over Switzerland will be presenting their work in a showroom, followed by a fashion show. Among these creative minds are Claudia Nabholz, a label with an eye on sustainability that captivates with geometric shapes and a hand-picked combination of materials, Balseca Weber, a Finnish-Ecuadorian duo based in Zurich that designs feminine silhouettes worthy of a grand entrance, and MDK, an accessory brand that creates bags for urban nomads. One thing is certain: the Swiss fashion world is as diverse as the alpine mountain landscape. Though the Swiss Fashion Night is primarily an event for fashion connoisseurs, with a litte bit of luck you can be there, too. We are able to give away two exclusive tickets! If you would like to walk the red carpet of the residence of the Swiss embassy alongside diplomats and stars, please leave a comment on our Instagramand send an email with your name, address and telephone number to win@ceecee.cc. The winner will be notified by phone. Good luck to you! For all of you following Fashion Week from your couch, we will be streaming Instagram stories live from the show. You should also check out the Swiss Fashion Night’s instagram account, which can serve as a fashion inspiration to you. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photos: Claudia Nabholz, Swiss Fashion Night)

POLISH THURSDAY DINNERS: CULTURAL NETWORKING & CUISINE

POLISH THURSDAY DINNERS: CULTURAL NETWORKING & CUISINE

For just over three years, Polish Thursday Dinners have brought all sorts of Berliners together around a table of modern Polish cuisine. The brainchild of Julia Bosski, the cultural networking events that are her dinners present not only fantastic meals, but an exciting chance to meet new people and maybe, just maybe, be entertained by the whirlwind that is Julia — jazz singer and entrepreneur that she is. We’ve had the chance to attend a few of her fabulous dinners, and can’t believe we haven’t recommended it before. A large communal table buzzed to life as the seats were filled, Julia herself attending to the chef in the tiny open kitchen — drink in hand. Introducing herself and her concept to the crowd, her energy was overwhelmingly positive and extremely palpable — leading to many conversations being started among friends and strangers alike.

RUBY GOSS RECOMMENDS: MOTIF WEIN

RUBY GOSS RECOMMENDS: MOTIF WEIN

My local, Motif Wein, is more than its name suggests, housing – in addition to a funkadelic selection of natural wine – vinyl, concerts, and coffee in one candlelit premises. As well as retailing by the bottle, on any given day you’ll find a rotation of uncorked wines ready for generous tastings that give the Weserstraße space an almost speakeasy slant. A place for music as much as wine (try my favorite orange, the “drier than garlic” Vinyes Singulars 2016 Macabeu), take the opportunity to peruse the LPs for sale in the back room and check in on the weekly program of intimate concerts — listed on Facebook. With each visit to the young location there’s something new – cheese, mezcal or the new daylight collaboration with Evie’s Beans. And for all these efforts, we must credit the man who makes Motif the place of good times that it is – perennially cheerful owner Oscar Bernal, who assures me all this activity is “only the beginning.” I’ll cheers to that.

Ruby Goss is a foodie writer and editor for publications like Saveur, Gather Journal and Suitcase Magazine. Originally from Melbourne, she’s been based in Berlin since 2014 and conveniently lives in Motif’s neighborhood, Neukölln.

PHYSICAL MEETS DIGITAL: ZEITGUISED & X-MAGAZINE

PHYSICAL MEETS DIGITAL: ZEITGUISED & X-MAGAZINE

Whether it’s lifelike animation, 3D design and printing, or augmented reality — the world is moving ever faster towards the intersection of what’s physical and what’s digital. Here to take that idea on headfirst is the award winning Berlin-based studio, Zeitguised — who produce exquisite realities which linger between art and design. In their fourth collaboration on “phygital (physical + digital)” objects, they’ve paired up with Japanese bag designer Toshiki Tagisawa and his label X-Magazine. Combining cutting edge digital manufacturing methods with Japanese craft, the Bagashi bags have a unique feature: they are all designed and made around a ‘hole’. The Zeitguised design algorithm produced unpredicted shapes that virtually cut through the bags (of course acting only as a window, not a real hole) and the rest is handmade by Toshiki and his team in Japan. In a limited edition of 100, in 5 color schemes, we can’t wait to see how this combination comes together. See them in person at the Bagashi bag launch at Firmament next Monday (15.1.2018) from 18h. Monday nights never looked so good. (Text: Massimo Hartmann / GIF: Zeitguised)
