Vintage in Berlin: Chrome Store

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.

Berlin Fashion: Hien Le

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.

On the Runway: Hien Le Summer 2014

Hien Le opened Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin once again for the presentation of the new summer 2014 collections in the tents at Brandenburger Tor. And what a beautiful opening it was, accompanied by Janet Jackson tunes. Hien Le created his own print of dragonflies, seen on men’s and women’s shirts, skirts and dresses. And then finalized his collection presentation with outfits in smashing red and pink hues, made of perfect soft and flowing silk. His cuts are simple and will always be, that’s what he does best. See a selection of the perfect looks here:
