I am very sure you all know the best source of unworn vintage and new glasses and sunglasses, Lunettes Selection on Torstraße. But did you know they had a second store just off Helmholtzplatz with an even bigger choice of sunglasses and – as a real speciality – kid’s prescription glasses? And they’re soo cute, like this one tiny round glasses model in red with white dots… So if you don’t find the model of your dreams on Torstraße, get to the Prenzlauer Berg location (where you can also pick up all glasses from their online store).
While a few years back the centre of clothes-buying was certainly Mitte around Münzstraße, this area today seems to be entirely occupied by H&M owned stores. (Well, not entirely… One small street of indomitable fashion heroes still holds out). But don’t fret, Berlin is still vast enough to offer space for young entrepreneurs, courageous enough to start their own stores with a small budget. Like Gerda Jünemann, who just opened a small paradise for lovers of vintage treasures: The Good Store.
If you were asked to picture your perfect supper, what would it be like? A selection of ham, sliced so thin you can almost look through it? Some cheese, so stinky the taste can only be as savory? And how about some fresh bread which just serves as the best base for the cheeses and hams? Imagine a table filled with these delicacies, and then topped with a bottle of good wine. At Vom Einfachen das Gute, you’ll find all of that! (Including that beautiful table.)
When one of your favorite things to do is standing at the stove, letting your thoughts simmer like the sauce in front of you, then you might have already stumbled across this shop on Invalidenstrasse – at Kochtail one can spend as many hours as in the kitchen, a paradise for everyone who not only likes but loves to cook and bake.
I am very sure you know the extra-cool store No.74 on Torstraße, featuring an exclusive selection of adidas’ most interesting cooperations like Y-3 and adidas Original’s collabs with Jeremy Scott, Rick Owens or Raf Simons. And I am very sure this sleek store is a must on your Mitte shopping tour. But did you also know that this cool-boys-hang-out has a sister-store, called The Boutique, on the most fashionable Mulackstraße, catering exclusively to the needs of girls with not only a selection of the adidas designs by Opening Ceremony, Jeremy Scott and Y3 but boosting the biggest selection of adidas by Stella McCartney in Berlin? You better be quick to check it out – it’s only temporarily open!
