I just took this picture and this is certainly not what we’ve all been hoping for, but I guess it will just make the very soon coming spring feel even better. We’ve made it through the most of it, why should we let this last bits of winter ruin our mood?

Oh I’m sure you know about Schwarzhogerzeil already, not only because you are a devoted reader of this blog and read about the beautiful store and its equally beautiful owner, Nicole Hogerzeil. But first and foremost because it’s been on Berlin’s fashion scene for quite some time and has built a strong reputation for its selection of international brands.
Entering Rianna in Berlin just off Oranienburger Straße, means entering the loud and crazy world of Rianna Kounou, who moved her store from Athens to Berlin in late 2009. Alongside her own designs, the colorful store offers a selection of seriously high-class vintage. Which in this case doesn’t mean shabby polyester sweaters from the 80ies or piles of mum-jeans from the 90s, but vintage in its strictest definition.
A perfect Buchtel with Powidl, enjoyed outside of Marketta’s Greisslerei with a cup of Melange.
I love how Berlin changes as soon as the sun is out. As if a heavy weight was finally taken off the city, people pour out on the streets to sit outside of cafés, turning their face into the sun to enjoy every minute of it. Who knows how long the golden one will stay with us, I’m sure the winter beast will make a final return sooner or later, until then: breathe, Berlin, breathe!
