It is very unlikely that you have not heard of Mykita, the young and very successful glasses brand from Berlin. You might have seen their glasses in the last Moncler show, on Bryanboy or Lady Gaga, or recognized their beautiful store. Mykita is also known for their numerous collaborations with the most interesting designers like Bernhard Wilhelm, Damir Doma (see their show-piece for the latest collection here) and Alexandre Herchcovitch.
Nevertheless, you might not have known that all (!) their glasses are actually hand-made in the middle of Berlin, at Mykita House in Brunnenstraße.
This year’s summer is having a hard time showing its best sides yet, but it’s trying and still has some days to prove why we love it so much. To prepare you for when the weeks of sun and warmth and joy finally come, we assembled a new edition of our summer guide.
You get a falafel at literally every corner of Berlin these days, still, a vendor doing it the delicate and fresh way is rather hard to find and I want to share one of my favorites: Mo’s Imbiss in Kreuzberg.
Achtland is the label of Thomas Bentz (left) and Oliver Lühr, or rather the realization of a long-standing idea of building up a high-end, ready-to-wear label that is based in Berlin.
