SUSANNE KAUFMANN HAS A GOODIE FOR BERLIN: A POP-UP STORE FOR THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY

SUSANNE KAUFMANN HAS A GOODIE FOR BERLIN: A POP-UP STORE FOR THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY

Alpine landscapes instead of icy Berlin avenues? I would beam myself to the Bregenzerwald in a heartbeat — to the home of Susanne Kaufmann and the birthplace of the skincare brand bearing her name. Back then, the products, housed in minimalist packaging with white labels and red lettering, lit up the eyes of beauty editors and their skin alike. Twenty years later, nothing has changed. Susanne Kaufmann has stayed true to her vision of a skincare brand focused on a select few high-quality ingredients. Even from the outset, the emphasis was on oil-based products. Over time, the product design has become even more minimalist, but the range has expanded. Susanne Kaufmann now offers a comprehensive beauty line, spanning bath and shower products to facial care sets. My favorites include the “Moisturizing Face Gel for Hypersensitive Skin” and the matching body lotion in a glass pump dispenser. And, of course, the mountain pine bath oil is a classic—especially welcome in winter.

Despite 20 years of success, Susanne Kaufmann remains active and is now introducing a new facial oil. It is available for exclusive advance purchase at Berlin’s KaDeWe department store. Chosen as a long-standing partner store, KaDeWe hosts the entire pop-up store experience. At Ku’damm, visitors can immerse themselves in the alpine world through large video installations, soundscapes, and fragrances. But it’s not just about looking and smelling; a bit of wellness is a must. Beauty experts are on hand to offer hand or arm massages, along with tips on skincare routines. For those seeking a momentary escape to other realms, the “Holistic Facial Treatment” in one of the treatment rooms is a delightful way to close your eyes and dream of the Bregenzerwald.

Susanne Kaufmann pop–up until 04.02.2024. You can book facials here.

NATURAL, NOURISHING & TRANSPARENT: VEGAN NATURAL COSMETICS WITHOUT COMPROMISE BY 1KOMMA8

NATURAL, NOURISHING & TRANSPARENT: VEGAN NATURAL COSMETICS WITHOUT COMPROMISE BY 1KOMMA8

A few days into the new year, are you wondering when exactly your resolutions from last year bid a quiet farewell? Lack of sleep, a non-existent sports routine, and a glass or two of natural wine more than planned – while moments like these quickly pile up again, the boxes to tick off the checklist remain empty. But there are things on this list that are actually too important to remain resolutions – such as your skincare routine. To give yourself and your skin the care you both deserve in the future, you should start your search with 1komma8 products – and hopefully end it there. The brand is best explained by its story and its founder: Nicole Algieri’s mission began around ten years ago. Suffering from rosacea herself, she was looking for products that were not only vegan but also free from fragrances, palm oil, and ingredients without a clear country of origin – unfortunately (or fortunately!) in vain.

Instead of abandoning her own demands, she quickly closed the gap in the market herself. The result is ethical, effective skincare that brings hypersensitive skin back into balance, including anti-aging properties. From nourishing and protective care to products for gentle cleansing, tonics, and exfoliators, you will find everything you need for your new skincare routine in the online store – with a detailed explanation of the ingredients and how to use them. At 1komma8, all products are dermatologically tested, designed in Berlin, and produced in Germany. They work in small batches and only use fairly produced raw materials. How and whether you combine them is ultimately up to you – if you’re unsure what’s right for you, you can try out a trial set.

FROM MODERN, WHIMSICAL CERAMICS TO BAGS MADE FROM VINTAGE BED COVERS: OBJECTS THAT SPREAD JOY FROM JOYFUL STUDIO

FROM MODERN, WHIMSICAL CERAMICS TO BAGS MADE FROM VINTAGE BED COVERS: OBJECTS THAT SPREAD JOY FROM JOYFUL STUDIO

Handmade pottery, vases and tableware: at Joyful Studio you can get your new favorite piece for your home. And as the name suggests, it’s all about one thing: bringing great joy with small things. Joanna, the founder of the brand, is originally from Poland and moved to Berlin in 2015. Initially for professional reasons and with the intention of only staying for a few months. However, the vibrant energy and creative possibilities of the city captivated her and Joanna has now lived here for over eight years. Joyful Studio’s creations are a mix of modern and whimsical elements. If you would like to contribute your own ideas, Joanna also offers individualized orders via her Instagram account to cater to personal wishes. The latest project the founder is currently working on is upcycling vintage comforter covers into tote bags and putting together DIY sneaker sets. Joanna is determined to open her own studio and concept store soon, where you can immerse yourself in the colorful world of handmade creations. Until then, in addition to the pottery and the products, the workshops and upcycling initiatives are intended to inspire other people and spread the message of finding joy in the simple act of creating.

ONE SUBSCRIPTION, HUNDRED STYLES: RENT LUXURY HANDBAGS WITH FOBE INSTEAD OF BUYING THEM

ONE SUBSCRIPTION, HUNDRED STYLES: RENT LUXURY HANDBAGS WITH FOBE INSTEAD OF BUYING THEM

New year, new styles? If that’s what you want to start 2024 with, Fobe is the right place for you. Because here, you’ll always get something new sent straight to your home. The Berlin start-up has set itself the task of renting out arm candy in the form of luxury handbags. Looking for something small between after work and a night out? How about Loewe’s “Puzzle Bag”, Prada’s “Mini Soft” or Bottega Veneta’s “Cassette”? If you want to fit everything important into your faithful everyday companion, Fobe also has larger models in its range. The “Arco Tote” in the signature woven look of the Italian luxury brand Bottega Veneta, for example, or the lightweight “Prada Nylon Shopper” in the 90s style of the Italian cult brand Prada. Or would you prefer something a little more classic? The leather shopper version from Celine is pure essence. And don’t worry, because here you have the choice, but not the agony: you don’t have to choose just one, but can have a changing liaison and you don’t have to commit yourself: there’s a new model every two months.

And let’s be honest, that’s exactly why we love fashion so much, because it is an expression of our changing tastes and reflects the zeitgeist. However, the makers of Fobe are also primarily concerned with making fashion consumption more sustainable and encouraging brands to make their products more durable in order to waste fewer resources. And of course there’s a lot of convenience for you: shipping and returns are included, everything that flutters in is checked and cleaned – and genuine, of course. The concept could therefore fulfill some of your New Year’s resolutions with just one click. And since every beginning has its magic, as the saying goes: with the code “CeeCee90” you get ninety percent off the first month of your subscription until 05.02.2024. If you’re still thinking about which handbags could enrich your style for 2024: you can browse around endlessly on Fobe’s Instagram and find the right inspiration.
