This is not your regular vintage store: no shaky old racks, no smelly piles of crackling fabrics, no need to navigate endless heaps of rummage, instead: clean chrome racks with carefully selected designer pieces, mirror cabinets presenting chunky jewelry and chic swimming attire, and lines of clean shoes. As well as a selection of the best Berlin based designers: welcome to Chrome Store.
It seems as if Michael Sontag foresaw the weather of this week (I am not yet saying the weather of this summer, let’s be patient, people) and designed his new collection for summer of 2016 accordingly. He presented a collection with loads of long pants in very beautiful casual cuts, cosy grey sweaters, long shirts with flower embroidery that reminded me of the decor of 1990s girly shirts, many layers, and two beautiful trench coats, one of them in a very 1990s natural linen. I wish I could wear that today.
Berlin Fashion Week is rolling and I was lucky enough to attend the show of one of my favorites: Hien Le. He presented his new designs for summer 2016 in the chic halls of Kronprinzenpalais on Unter den Linden for a selection of guests. If we trust Le, we’re all gonna look even sportier next summer, however, he created a very sophisticated version of the sportswear trend with materials that are too delicate to risk any rolling on the grass. This collection featuring boxy short-sleeved shirts and flowing tennis-skirts is more to look active while sipping some white wine at a roof-top party. I loved the colors and their refreshing combinations, as always, and already made my shopping-list for my tennis inspired look next summer.

But whatever, I was always in to support the locals anyway, pushing them to stardom! Or at least into your wardrobe, because fashion can be as beautiful as it wants, it needs to be bought to shine. And thus I am presenting you the much awaited update of the very important guide to shop Berlin designers in Berlin. It is not as simple as one thinks, albeit Kadewe is putting up a big show for the summer, and more and more labels are opening their own stores. Refer to this list when your shopping trip needs a lot more shop-local-attitude and invest in products directly from your neighborhood:
