When living in the centre of this cosy little town, one sometimes tends to forget that Berlin actually lies in the middle of a beautiful holiday region with hundreds of lakes, forests and parks to discover.
Fabian was my lovely host during my 3-day-trip to Hamburg, he lives in St.Georg, in-between organic stores, traditional cobbler shops and gay hardcore sex clubs. While some people still say they wouldn’t want to live there, I enjoyed the dense mix of interests and people, which is rather hard to find in Berlin, since our lovely city is so spacious.
Fabian has been living in Hamburg for many years, working as an editor for GQ, Interview and fostering his own blog, fabianhart.com, which is one of the best (fashion) blogs we have in Germany. The fashion needs to be parenthesized, since he deals with so much more than clothing, carefully composing images and texts on urban and online phenomena.
There’s no way around Bent Angelo Jensen when it comes to Hamburg and style – his brand Herr von Eden is known for its exceedingly stylish and impeccably made suits, that are worn by confident men and women throughout Europe. In his Atelier at Großneumarkt, where the above picture was taken, he and his tailors work on made-to-measure suits and special jobs, handling classic cuts and unusual fabrics. Bent himself is his best model, appearing in his ad-motifs shot by Daniel Josefsohn numerous times and wearing his own designs in perfection.
By the way, there’s also a Herr von Eden store in Berlin, located at Alte Schönhauser Straße 14.
