Romantique and I were born in Berlin, we are real girls from Berlin just like John F. Kennedy once said “Ich bin ein Berliner”. Last weekend, we browsed through the book stores and found the coffee table book “Der Berliner Stil” by Angelika Taschen. It’s not a must read book for anyone who is a Berliner already. For everyone else, the book is a treasure trove in terms of tips for hip restaurants and shopping destinations.
According to the book, Berlin style is influenced by the international fashion scene, fashion bloggers or wannabe locals and tourists – also called the “Berlin-Mitte” style. Berlin is too big and versatile than just to promote only one style of one district. It would have been interesting to look into other districts: e.g. how the women dress in Berlin-Zehlendorf namely, which is more like in Hamburg. The Hamburg style is more on the conservative side: Think lots of navy blue, blazers with gold buttons, high quality designer basics, no experiments and fashion victims!
I’m a girl born in Berlin, a rebel at heart, who loves Burberry trench coats. Here you can see see my authentic Berlin fashion style: zebra pants by H&M, blue Converse, Trench coat, Ray Ban Wayfarer.
