BOUQUETS, BAKED TREATS & BREAKFAST AT FLORAL BISTRO TOM OTTO IN RICHARDKIEZ

BOUQUETS, BAKED TREATS & BREAKFAST AT FLORAL BISTRO TOM OTTO IN RICHARDKIEZ

If you are planning to get your loved one some flowers, time is running short. Why not simply invite them to Floral Bistro for something sweet and let them choose their own Valentine’s Day bouquet? Florist Tom Otto’s Rixdorf shop, which opened in 2019 following a move from Schöneberg, combines flowers and a French café, satisfying all senses at once. Not only will you find beautiful plants and bouquets arranged by Tom, you can also try his homemade cakes and tarts among the greenery. Tom attaches great importance to sustainability in the selection of all his products, like the lovingly chosen indoor plants. You can also come by for breakfast on weekends and holidays; the menu is inspired by French bistro cuisine with cheese platters and freshly baked bread. At Tom’s you will find all the ingredients for a cozy start to this romantic weekend. (Text: Hanna Komornitzyk / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)

FROM BARCELONA TO BERLIN — SUSTAINABLE FASHION POP-UP BY PALOMA WOOL

FROM BARCELONA TO BERLIN — SUSTAINABLE FASHION POP-UP BY PALOMA WOOL

As fast fashion continues to dominate the industry, Paloma Wool is one clothing label trying to break that cycle – with style. Barcelona-based Paloma founded her namesake brand in 2014 with the aim of merging art and clothing, and the result is a collection that takes a highly creative and experimental approach to fashion. The clothes are produced in Spain and often created in cooperation with international artists like Alejandra Smits and Romy Cole-Groth. The sustainable production methods used prioritize the creative process, resulting in garments which are a perfect demonstration of how clothing helps us express ourselves most freely. The distinctive pieces – for both men and women – are now available to browse closer to home. Paloma Wool is doing a world tour, and the next stop is Berlin, so head to Neukölln’s Studio Chérie to see and shop the collection for yourself. (Text: Sophie Döring / Photos: Paloma Wool)

CURIOUS FOX: A LITERATURE AND EVENTS HUB FOR ENGLISH READERS

CURIOUS FOX: A LITERATURE AND EVENTS HUB FOR ENGLISH READERS

Co-owner of Curious Fox Orla traces her early bookstore memories to The Winding Stair in Dublin – a shop she frequented as a teenager where you can enjoy tea while perusing your next read. In 2003, she opened her Neukölln shop with partner David who, fittingly, she met in a bookshop. Drawing Berliners of all sorts looking for English books, Curious Fox features three rooms of literature – old and new, classic and contemporary. There is a kids section for the youngsters, a range of books from Irish authors and a section of poetry from emerging and established poets from across Berlin. The shop is a centerpoint for the English-speaking literary community, running events most weeks of the month. The “Isn’t Everything Poetry” night offers an open mic and a welcoming atmosphere for budding lyricists to share their work publicly for the first time, and the next edition (04.02.2020 20–23h) will feature readings by poet Síofra McSherry and writer Bernadette Geyer. Don’t forget the quiz night – the winner of the seven–round contest gets a cash prize. (Text: Scarlett Peeters / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)

ONLINE AND ONSITE — DISCOVER AND SHOP FRESH DESIGNS AT FREIRAUM

ONLINE AND ONSITE — DISCOVER AND SHOP FRESH DESIGNS AT FREIRAUM

Scrolling through my social media feeds, I’m always discovering new designers, makers and curators that tickle my fancy. But when it comes to these smaller young brands, I often have to buy the products “blind” off their websites. Here’s an idea though: what if you could sit on that new chair or test out that untried hand cream before taking the leap? Well that’s the idea behind Freiraum, a new shop concept on Friedrichstraße that collects pieces from up and coming online boutiques and showcases them for you to see, feel and test in person. The brands available read like a who’s who of top innovators and visionaries in the fashion, design and cosmetic worlds. Besides local names like father and son menswear team Tom Àdam and Shanghai Tofu with their spunky shirts and accessories, you’ll find international designers like Barcelona-based M2Malletier with their minimalist, surreal bags, and sustainably-made garments from Henriette von Grünberg. After trying out it’s time for the cool part: just scan the product’s QR-Code, pay, and your stuff is sent right to your door. 2020 is the year of bricks and clicks.

STREET ART MEETS FASHION: EXCLUSIVE STYLES FROM BERLIN-BASED ARTIST STOHEAD

STREET ART MEETS FASHION: EXCLUSIVE STYLES FROM BERLIN-BASED ARTIST STOHEAD

Fashion Week used to be an exclusive event for invited guests, but for 2020 it’s a good opportunity for all of us to bring a bit of glamour to this gray January. Best example: a flying visit to KaDeWe to check out an exclusive collection which earns the tag “Created in Berlin” twice over. Streetart creator Christoph Hässler aka Stohead has designed a collection for the Friedrichshain-based fashion label Liebeskind Berlin. Stohead is best known for his eye-catching typographic visuals, and it is precisely these textual forms that make the Liebeskind pieces into true statements, with the message “Move” emblazoned on tote bags, belt bags, straps and wallets. Ready to make the move? Don’t wait: the creations are available exclusively in Berlin for Fashion Week at stockists including KaDeWe and the Liebeskind Berlin Stores in Mitte, at the Alexa and the Mall of Berlin as well as online.
