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.

THE CITY IS YOUR GYM WITH URBAN SPORTS CLUB

THE CITY IS YOUR GYM WITH URBAN SPORTS CLUB

Do you spend your life criss-crossing town like us? Luckily your workout doesn’t have to take a hit with Urban Sports Club, which turns the whole city into your fitness playground. Headquartered in Berlin and now Europe-wide, the flat-rate sports membership club allows you to explore over 50 sports and activities across hundreds of studios in the city, for a fitness routine that brings you from Neukölln to Moabit and everywhere in between. Our 2020 fitness trend is for short but effective workouts and we take the chance to train wherever we find ourselves: like the 45-minute power cycling class at Beat81, for an energy boost when passing through Friedrichshain. On social visits to Kreuzberg, our favorite stop to get our feet off the ground is the pole dancing classes at Soul Flight by Moritzplatz. And after Sunday brunch in Neukölln, it’s the perfect time for some wellness with a session at Hotpod Yoga Berlin, a multisensory take on classic hot yoga. Getting our new year fitness goals, one Kiez at a time. (Text: Faye Valentine / Photos: Urban Sports Club & Stefan Haehnel)

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.

ALLBIRDS: SIMPLE, SUSTAINABLE AND SERIOUSLY COMFORTABLE

ALLBIRDS: SIMPLE, SUSTAINABLE AND SERIOUSLY COMFORTABLE

Sustainable shopping is more than a buzzword and for 2020 it’s time to get serious about where your coin goes. Enter AllBirds, the sleek, sustainable shoe label from San Francisco who recently opened their first German store in Mitte. Bright and minimal, the shop has chairs customised by local collective Old Yellow, and fun Berlin-inspired laces in shades like “currywurst red”, which are free to take home. The environment is central to AllBirds – from the premium natural materials down to the recycled shoe boxes that line the till area. The shoes are made from sustainably-sourced Merino wool, eucalyptus, castor beans and recycled plastic, and other brands are encouraged to adopt the Sweetfoam open-source technology in their carbon negative sole material. All this without sacrificing on style or comfort – speaking of which, see for yourself if you agree with Time magazine that they’re the “world’s most comfortable shoe”. They’re washable, super soft, and since wool is antibacterial and moisture wicking, you can wear them without socks. Sustainability, one step at a time. (Text: Emily Miotke / Photos: AllBirds)

Dating apps take you on magical journeys. With a mere swipe and a tap you could be sipping cocktails with that special someone or taking a lusty walk in the park with your newest flame. Well we’ve found a match that will bring the biggest spark yet: the chance to join a secret concert on 05.12.19 from two of the hottest artists around: international rapper and songwriter Kelvyn Colt and rising R&B star Rola. The only way into this unique MusicMatch event is to match Kelvyn and Rola on Tinder for the chance to gain exclusive guestlist access. If they match you back, awaiting you at a secret Kreuzberg location is a thrilling night of live beats in an intimate urban setting.

To top off a night of banging sounds and grooves: an after party featuring tunes from bass DJane Not Your Girlfriend. This is a right swipe you don’t want to miss out on.
