Marida, 22, sounddesigner from Italy (living in Berlin)
She and her bike were rushing by and it was one of these good-style-but-on-bike-hence-no-photo moments. This we experienced two to three times already everytime we’re shooting. And you know what: each time it gets more depressing. But then Marida stopped almost right infront of us!
We had a little trouble approaching her since our hands and mouths were full icecream from Aldemir. Believe us, that’s not the kind of parlor where you take only one scoop (they sell such mouth-watering flavors like cookies, mecroche, chocolate&chilli and granny’s apple pie and also great pizza). In the end we did get to talk to her and it was worth the effort of taking a break from the ice cream, because that’s the way a sexy back pose is made.
Marida is currently living in that Álvaro Siza building in Falckensteinstraße, where she also designs her own clothes (e.g. that shirt) and pays a horrible rent.
Pierre, 30, writer from Paris
He was the first person we approached on that sunny day and also the first in a row of non-german NeuBerliner (new to Berlin). Since Paris was way too boring he came to Berlin to write a novel, kind of autobiographic. His bag is Comme des Garçons for Fred Perry.
This is Bettina, lovely fashion-editor for Berlin city magazine Zitty. She was accompanying us this day and asking profound and thrilling questions to make a report on us for the next issue.
