That’s so green, around Schlesische Straße




Julietta, 26, working at AM3 (Münzstraße 21) and her friend Maria, 27, journalist from Madrid
We in particular liked the haircut of Julietta in combination with that swinging dress and the greek shoes. We’ll definitely go visit her at Münzstraße, since we now know someone working at that supermegafantastic(etc.) store ;-)
Wondering if Maria draw that bunny on the shirt herself…


Aymara, 38, teacher of languages & Diego, almost 2, feasting on ice cream (bought at the parlor we recommended in the last post!)



Rebecca, 19, student from University of San Francisco, USA

We had fun figuring out nationality this time because only non-germans were around. We have to admit that we had such a hard time figuring out hers.
The reasons for that will stay unknown!


Oppelner Straße, Berlin Kreuzberg

Back and Flowers




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.

Carneval Fashion

We went on the Carneval of Cultures and had a great time watching the people and the procession. While standing at the line we spotted this girl. First we didn’t notice her in the crowd, but her stunning look made us look back twice. She was walking fast, almost running, so we had a hard time getting to her. But we were able to reach her and here she is:

This guy was dancing on the street having a ball. Later he also saw our girl and was even happier embracing her. :D

Carnival of Cultures in Berlin

The yearly Karneval der Kulturen was held last week in Berlin. Another occasion to drink beer, very much like the worldfamous “Oktoberfest”. No, that is not a nice thing to say. Anyway, this post is not really a fashion post, but instead it’s more of looking on one of Berlin’s craziest festivities.
So come along and enjoy:


“Come along or I’ll getcha!”


Belly dancing german women.



A capoeira-group. First picture is kind of messed up, because these two people are blocking the view.


The question is: Is she some kind of historical character? Can she fly with those golden wings?


Typical german festive garb. Orange denotes strength, honor, generosity, and prosperity. The white hat and the rainbow flag stand for peace.

SiB.edit: Armando & Joor Part I

As long time readers (which you all are of course),you may recall the 1st of may on which we announced a brand new feature to be appeared on StilinBerlin.

This newest feature is called “SiB.edit”. It goes something like this: we invite some special guests (naturally fashion-experts) to come along with us and to point out the people whose outfits they like. After that they give us their point of view over the way those Berliners dress.
This time is the turn for the two lovely Dutch guys Armando&Joor, we met first on iqons.
We hope you may like this fresh shiny brand new freature from us, so please don’t hesitate to let us know what you think of it. ;-)
Enjoy reading!


Joor, modelscout/stylist & Armando, photographer


Laurenz, 7 & Erik, 36

A&J:
We spotted this “Berliner” from far far away – he was playing football with his adorable son and had this super-relaxed attitude, and style. We need more foxy fathers like this. He wears a pair of big sunglasses, which are especially hot because of that neon-lace kinda thing. His son wears long hair; so fashionable for young kids.
Sascha Ring, 28, musician – apparat

A&J:
Big sunglasses, pretty tight jeans and a kind of “just fresh out of bed” look, wich is finished off by his designer stubble. We met him on his way to work (on a national holiday, to underline that) – he was having breakfast (sandwich & coke) while walking. It just works out.


Clementine, 27, student (architecture) & Paul, 27, actor

A&J:
An outgoing couple. The bus behind them belongs is theirs by the way. Clementine mixes the girlish with sporty, but keeps a cool femininity and how enthralling to wear chucks with a flower printed lace-skirt! The boy is “pretty in pink”. Not a lot of men can carry this color and look superb; but amazingly he can. The streets are yours.

Julian, 23, student (fashion design)

A&J:
We love his style, very hip, but individual. The pretty top with all kinds of fishes and a jacket which has been transformed into a scarf. Just a little crazy personal touch. His haircolor and style goes so well together with the green of this old sunglasses.
Seth, 31, translator & Aya, 32, webdesigner

A&J:
What a wonderful couple. Especially the boy: a complete blue image. We like his Continental haircut and the schoolboy-look. The girl uses such nice red details in her outfit; i.e. her glasses, earrings and belt. Go girl.
