It’s not really an escape, since Treptower Park is basically in Berlin, but still, it’s my personal favorite Berlin park. And it has been for years. Treptower Park features an irresistable mix of wild sceneries with lakes and the connected beautiful and large forest called Plänterwald, with the weird yet compelling austerity of the Soviet war memorial from 1949 and the ruinous wonderland of the former Spreepark amusement park. It’s the best place to spend a warm late summer afternoon.
Once again I was invited to be part of the entourage of the Vogue Germany team for last night’s Fashion Night Out to photograph the shopping extravaganza. Editor in chief Christiane Arp was accompanied by model Anja Rubik and her husband Sasha Knezevic on a tour between Quartier 206, Departmentstore, Schumacher, Hermès, Louis Vuitton and KaDeWe. Here are some of my favorite pictures, you can find even more on Vogue.de.
Shopping Berlin based designers in Berlin isn’t as easy as it should be – most of them make a living thanks to their sales in Asia, others just don’t make enough sales at all. This is why I made that guide – clothing needs to be bought to be worn. It’s over a year since I first published the first edition of “How to shop Berlin designers in Berlin” guide and naturally, quite a lot of things have changed. Some stores closed or changed their concept, others opened or have taken over new designers and so I updated the guide with all the new information that was available to me.
