REPAIR & UPCYCLING WORKSHOPS AND INSTORE ART — LIFEWEAR DAYS AT UNIQLO

REPAIR & UPCYCLING WORKSHOPS AND INSTORE ART — LIFEWEAR DAYS AT UNIQLO

Broken buttons, torn seams and faded colors – three sure signs it’s the end of the road for your favorite jeans. But before banishing your beloved garments to the bin, why not try your hand at repairing them with help from the fashion-forward team at Uniqlo. The clothing brand is offering free workshops for fixing up your clothes at the “Second Life Studio” located in the Uniqlo Flagship Store on Tauentzienstraße in Charlottenburg. Open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the studio is offering workshops every second Saturday from this week that will show you how to repair or repurpose any Uniqlo item – though you can of course use your new skills for any garment. They’re part of the LifeWear Days program that includes special workshops and colorful in-store artwork showing scenes of Berlin city life from illustrator Laura Breiling. At the “Paint Your Jeans” session (13.11.2021) you can give old jeans new flair by applying fresh colors or upcycling them into a handy bag.

If your items are still wearable and you would prefer them to go to a good cause, you can also donate them to the Berliner Stadtmission. The organization is a partner for the Second life Studio and provides clothing and other support to people in difficult circumstances. You can help the cause by handing in your items next time you shop at any of Uniqlo’s Berlin stores. Speaking of shopping: once you’ve got your jeans back into shape, why not take the chance to refresh your winter wardrobe with some pieces from the A/W LifeWear collection. Pick from natural-fiber knits, Heattech undergarments that use cutting-edge materials to keep you warm, and the compact Ultra Light Down jackets made from recycled or certified responsible down. Our favorite is the vest, which is a perfect add-on to wear under your favorite jacket for extra warmth.

RENT YOUR DREAM GARMENTS — HIGH-END MENSWEAR SERVICE FROM POOL

RENT YOUR DREAM GARMENTS — HIGH-END MENSWEAR SERVICE FROM POOL

The concept of Pool is simple yet genius: a luxury garment rental service that gives you access to a huge collection of high-end fashion. Launched in September 2021, the Kreuzberg-based fashion concept offers a monthly subscription which lets you can pick from a selection of thousands of garments that you can keep for as long as you want, no strings attached. The cost is based on the value bracket of a garment, and you can swap your items for other ones as often as you like (cleaning is included in the service). Pool is the brainchild of Danish expats Rune Orloff and Kristian Rix, who founded the service on circular economy principles. This means that all the clothes are responsibly sourced – such as from cancelled orders or overproduction – helping reduce demand for new product. Curated by a small and experienced team, the brands in the “pool” include NanushkaComme des GarconsRhudeNudie Jeans as well as neighboring Kreuzberg designer Hien Le. You can come to the store and browse and select items just like at a regular shop, only instead of buying, you are just giving the garments a temporary home – saving you the upfront costs and potentially lots of fashion waste. You can also check out Instagram for the latest collection, which includes winter-ready printed hoodies. To join as a member, fill in the online form – and get ready to start exploring the brands you’ve always dreamed of wearing. P.S.: This is far from a men-only affair: a lot of the pieces are unisex styles…

FURNITURE, ACCESSORIES AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN: INSPIRATION FOR YOUR HOME AT THE NEW MADE.COM SHOWROOM IN MITTE

FURNITURE, ACCESSORIES AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN: INSPIRATION FOR YOUR HOME AT THE NEW MADE.COM SHOWROOM IN MITTE

Did someone say autumn? Even as the nights close in, don’t forget fall has its good sides – sofa sessions with a series and a woolen blanket come to mind. If your home is lacking all it needs to feel cozy, now is the time to fill in the gaps, and Made.com is offering up some inspiration. From 11.10.2021, the furniture brand is inviting you to their new showroom: a chic Mitte loft which is certainly not your average apartment but still feels like a real home. On display are handpicked pieces from the current range which you can touch, pick up and see in a home context. Everywhere you turn are dreamy, muted tones: light wood, rattan, raffia, wool carpets and cream-coloured bed linen come together (all very much in line with the current Instagram trends). If you want to brighten up your home or just want a few finishing pieces, you’ll find inspiration in spades here. It’s not all beige though: there are splashes of color and details in the vases, carafes and other ceramics, not to mention the perfectly-made bed you’ll be itching to lie down on. Assisting you in the apartment are staff from the London brand who can fill you in on looks, delivery times and stock levels, and help take measurements. That said, you might just want to sit back on the pigeon blue sofa and dream about your ideal home…

PERFECTLY-CRAFTED BAGUETTES, FLUFFY BRIOCHE AND AUSTRIAN-STYLE BREAD FROM A WOOD-FIRED OVEN — TAKTIL

PERFECTLY-CRAFTED BAGUETTES, FLUFFY BRIOCHE AND AUSTRIAN-STYLE BREAD FROM A WOOD-FIRED OVEN — TAKTIL

In my mind, the perfect baguette should be slim, light and crispy on the outside, and fluffy on the inside. But then what do I know about French baked goods? The extent of my knowledge is holidays in France. That said, I reckon I’m vindicated by Taktil bakery founders Katharina and Lennert, who went to Provence to learn the art of this great bread. These guys make the best baguettes I’ve ever had in Berlin, leading me to make the short cycle ride to inconspicuous Nogatstraße near Körnerpark on a regular basis. But it’s not just the bread I come for: the pair do wonderfully heavy and buttery brioche plus round cardamom loaves based on Austrian baking traditions that are delicious with fresh butter and a slab of cheese. The place and the people are likeable too: the shop is pleasantly unpretentious, with a large wood-fired oven used for the baking and a direct view of the artisans at work. If you want to eat your brioche on the spot, take a seat on the red chairs next to the turntable or grab a spot outside. The duo love to talk about their passion and how their self-described “Bakery in Progress” is coming along. No doubt there will be more to come from this pair, but the currently small selection is actually a good thing: I know exactly what I’m after and always go home happy. My baguette will of course be opened before I make it home. After all, this place is called Taktil, and getting hands-on is the name of the game…

OUT NOW: LIMITED EDITION BERLIN BAGS FROM CEE CEE X UCON ACROBATICS — JOIN US FOR THE LAUNCH EVENT AT POOL

We’re fans of Berlin – that much is clear. And as you might expect, we’re always out and about looking for exciting places, people and ideas. One brand we’re particular fans of is ideal for this on-the-go lifestyle: Ucon Acrobatics. This Berlin-based bag maker creates the perfect packs for a busy life around town, with designs that are made to fit your laptop, protect your back and keep all your belongings safe and dry while keeping you looking sleek and cool. Since we’re such fans, it was only natural to want to team up with the brand again for another collab. A while ago we created a bespoke Berlin pattern for the Ucon Acrobatics charity initiative, and the design was so popular we’re now making it available as part of the Ucon Acrobatics x Cee Cee Capsule Collection, which consists of the Hajo and Jasper backpacks and the Jona cross-body bag. The launch for the collection takes place tonight (07.10.2021) and you are invited to celebrate! The venue for the party is Pool, a service that lets you rent clothes and accessories instead of buying them, and their team has kindly let us use their beautiful space for our event. Come say hi, have a Brlo beer, and try out the Ucon Acrobatics x Cee Cee bags (or, if you can’t wait, try them out virtually using our AR filter @ceeceeberlin) Want to get yours? The bags are available on the Ucon Acrobatics website.
