Hello again spring! It’s always a pleasure to welcome you <3
It’s nearly May and the weather has only been getting nicer every day, and us Berliners are filled with anticipation & excitement for the upcoming Spring/Summer season. We are especially excited about the varieties of styles in bloom - if you were wondering what’s so thrilling about Berlin’s street styles, each look is unique with special attention to comfort and functionality.
Berlin street style usually takes a modest, statement-making approach, while never revealing too much skin or bling. Sometimes it's a bit messy, but most of the time very inspiring.
I'm not certain I do the Berlin look justice, but here one thing's for sure - nobody cares! So grab whatever you like, mix and match and feel free to try new things, but most of all make it yours. The most important thing to remember? Stay true and wear your outfit with attitude.
I picked three MCM lovelies from the SS 2014 collections. I am pretty sure they will blend seamlessly with the upcoming summer in Berlin. Let’s take a closer look:
COLOR VISETOS - EW CROSS MINI
The smart & urbane Colour Visetos collection sports a refined multifunctional aesthetic. With an emphasis on practicality, this versatile collection was designed for mobile & dexterous use, handcrafted with cowhide & cotton lining. The clever collection is available in paradise green, chalk pink, daphne blue, black, white&cognac adorned with solid brass hardwares, fitted with detachable shoulder-straps, bi-directional zippers and a bevy of compartments built for the urbanites & fashionistas on-the-go.
My dream bag of the season: this green cutie-pie makes my heart melt. I love the size, the fresh colour and the whole design. Add brown leather sandals and a striped dress: C’est ca!
KEANA - TOTE SMALL
The Keana collection debuts with a handcrafted shrunken lamb leather body & two-tone cotton canvas lining, boasting a minimalist aesthetic refined by exuberant tones, deep hues & vibrant shades. Signifying ‘bold’ in German, Keana flaunts a tough-lux exterior, featuring a generous constellation of studs on each frame. Endowed with a voluminous interior fitted with gilded brass hardwares, the soft shapes are designed as daytime handbags for convenient & practical use. The classy Keana Collection befits virtually any attire, affording style versatility for style mavens & tastemakers alike.
Another beauty: I have a crush on blue this year and this darling Keana fulfills my every dream. Pictured above are a casual denim duo, blue slip-ons and a fisher’s hat on top. Pretty simple, pretty cool
VINTAGE VISETOS - BACKPACK MEDIUM
The refined Vintage Visetos Collection is a distinguished collectible, timeless in poise and chic in style. Structured to perfection, the Autumn / Winter ’13 Editions introduce novel shapes harmonised fitted with croco-embossed fast-net trim with 24k gold-plated hardwares. Suitable for all generations, the Vintage Visetos Collection is available in bright new tones and classic shades in a wide range of sizes and styles, ideal for a sophisticated cosmopolitan looks, suitable for multiple occasions.
OK, you’re right. I am a bit obsessed with suits this season. This year matching pairs are my jumpsuit substitute and they fit perfectly with Berlin’s laid back and relaxed atmosphere. With some white sneakers and this amazing Vintage Visetos backpack you might even be mistaken for a Berliner! Trust me ;)!
