Romantique Fashion Finds at Galeries Lafayette Berlin

Bags/ Berlin/ Romantique/ Shoes/ Wardrobe

The iconic Parisian department store Galeries Lafeyette opened it’s first German branch in 1996 in Berlin. If you are in Berlin, make sure to check out all the latest fashion from designer to high street as well as the huge makeup department and a Parisian styled Bistro area.

Below are my picks for the new spring / summer  season 2012!

Espadrille from Spanish label Castaner with a Chanel-esque patent leather tip

A great way to rock the romantic trend 2012  is to take a classic trenchcoat with broderie anglaise details – this one is from Valentino Red.

No summer without rain – This umbrella with fresh pink Vichy checks lightens up the rainy days

Dainty, pastel coloured flowers on Valentino handbags – I love this season!

Furla is one of the few Italian fashion and handbag labels that is still family owned and also reasonably priced for the quality. Like all Furla handbags, this is one is exquisitly crafted and adds class to any outfit!

Over the roofs of Paris – Les Galeries Lafayette

Paris/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

The Galeries Lafayette are not just a must see for shopping, but the department store also boasts an amazing roof terrace on the 7th floor, providing a view formidable over the city of love. Enjoy a cafe au lait and a price- less view at the same time at the cafe.

The weekend of our visit was also the start of the sale which we didn’t realise until we spotted hordes of passionate shoppers almost getting into fist fights over 500 EUR Chloe handbags and 50 metre queues just to be allowed access into the Louis Vuitton shop.

Berliners will notice that the interior of the French department store resembles that of the Galeries Lafayette in Berlin. Jean Nouvel constructed the German copy in 1991. It is one of only three in the whole world – the two others are in Casablanca, Morocco and in Dubai.

I wear a Max Mara dress, sunglasses from TK Maxx und shoes from Pretty Ballerina.
