Picnic? Check. Sunscreen? Check. Swimsuit? Check. You’re good to go for some fun at the lake – just one more must-have remains: a nice cloth to stretch out on. This calls for a multifunction shawl for classy waterside moments, and what better designer to turn to than yourself. We’re telling you this because Bikini Berlin is giving you the chance to create your very own scarf-shawl-blanket out of recycled materials as part of this year’s summer special. Head to the concept shopping mall this August and look for the giant patchwork cloth hanging in the atrium. Circular fashion is the name of the game, hence why you are invited to create a 70x70cm cloth of your own using rescued textiles and stamps inspired by Bikini Berlin’s 1950s origins. For every shawl you make (they’re free!) you will be in with a chance to win an overnight stay for two at the neighboring 25hours Hotel. Another reason to get hands-on and up your lakeside fashion game this summer.
