Leaving Berlin: Achtland

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. Of course I instantly knew that the business they’re building can only benefit from that step, still, sad patriotic emotions swept over me. I couldn’t help but ask them: WHY!?

Art in Berlin: Re-Discovery I at Autocenter

Autocenter just started a new series of small exhibitions called Re-Discovery where they’ll combine the work of a young artist with the work of someone senior. The first installment was curated by Francesca Gavin and confronts Sture Johannesson’s graphics with Laura Buckley’s video installation.

Revisited: Street Food Thursday

It’s almost a year ago since the best foodie-invention since the Thai Market came to our lovely city and we’ve been enthusiastic fans of the glorious Street Food Thursday at Markthalle IX ever since. One of its qualities is the ever changing list of vendors. While starting with (and still often featuring) foodie stars like Fräulein Kimchi or Glücksmädchen; many new favorites have been added. It was about time to show you some (new) highlights.

Shop in Berlin: Lunettes’ opticians

You already know that Lunettes Selection is one of our favorite places when it comes to shopping for new (sun)glasses. Yet for those of us blessed with imperfect eyesight, the process was always a little elaborate; while you could shop for your frames on Torstraße, you had to get your glasses cut somewhere else. Those days of inconvenience are now over, as the Lunettes shop now also employs opticians to test and measure your eyesight. Just like their carefully curated selection of frames, though, this process is a little bit more tailored and personal than anywhere else.

Potatoes in Berlin: Bixels is back

Bixels is that renown pop-up restaurant by Daniel Bixel, serving the most delicious and creative baked potatoes in town – sadly only during a couple of days every six months or so. But enough of the lamenting, because it’s time again for a week of mashed potato bliss.

Starting tomorrow, Bixels will serve their starchy delights at Club der Polnischen Versager, Ackerstraße 169, daily from 12:00–21:00 until Saturday, March 29th. It’s gonna be a good week!
