We saw a quite impressive amount of hail going down this week, which might have been exactly what Florian meant when he told me that Berlin’s gonna pay for all those very beautiful but very early spring days we enjoyed this March. Anyhow, April is upon us and until now there’s no weather app telling us glory is vanishing (19 degrees tmrw, again!). Before you go out and frolic, here are the best links of the week:

I love Berlin fashion, you know that. So you might be able to imagine how my little fashion-heart almost broke to pieces when Thomas and Oliver, the genius minds behind ACHTLAND, told me they’re leaving Berlin and are going back to London.
