Magazzino is a owner-run fashion boutique with an unique sustainable and versatile selection. In addition to nice labels, Maggazino – which first opened in the same house on 30 squaremeters in 1972 – pays attention to the highest quality of fabrics and workmanship. Much of the Magazzino fashion comes from Italy, the style is sporty and elegant and you can find a rich selection of decent dresses, pants and skirts here. Men also like Magazzino: the very large selection of approximately 1.000 suits can be found in very fashionable, individual but also in classic forms. As well as shirts and ties plus a wide range of jeans, trousers and sweaters. In the individual Magazzino coats and jackets store, that opened in the middle of September, you will find not only coats and jackets for all seasons but also accessories such as hats, gloves and scarves. We love the expresso, the competent, unobtrusive staff as well as the fast and perfect change service. And found a lot of favorite pieces here.

FriendlyFur – Happy Nature

Foto: FriendlyFur
The Berlin brand FriendlyFur was founded by Nikolas Gleber — himself the son of a forester — in 2007 and the company processes only furs that occur in the annual controlled hunt and were a waste product so far. There are accessories, materials and perfumes as well as brand new interior design products in the latest colors: Besides fox now you can also find rabbit, nutria or raccoon. The result are modern and high quality designs as bags, blankets, capes or even the world's first perfume flacon sheath. The scents À Rebours and The Green Carnation have been developed in collaboration with the famous perfumer Mark Buxton. For FriendlyFur no animals are killed or grown - all skins are taken directly from the wild. Nature conservation organizations like NABU praise the concept, because "the meaningful use of fur belongs to an ecologically sustainable hunting". FriendlyFur has built up a network that gathers the naturalfskins and processes these to exclusive objects. Production takes place in careful handcraft, saving resources because all skins are available only in limited number. Currently, there are not only a lot of new varieties, but also ecological colors and skins for premium-conscious fashion designers: Among other FriendlyFur is processed by brands like Aigner and Baldessarini for the winter season 2016/17. FriendlyFur supports the restoration and preservation of nature. A certificate gives you the full information about the origin of the fur. Single piece numbers can be tracked at any time for the whole process. FriendlyFur offers an alternative to traditional fur and you can recognize their products by the neon green label FriendlyFur Happy Nature.
 
 

The WYLD at Friedrichstadtpalast

Photo: Friedrichstadtpalast

THE WYLD at Friedrichstadtpalast – seen by more than 650.000 visitors up to now – claims to be wild as Berlin. A Vogue journalist described the show as an "intoxicating and seducing trip through the metropolitan wilderness". Becoming curious at last, we got sunday tickets for the huge show with its glitzy-glam Vegas-style production including wenn trained young men, long legged showgirls, a high-tech stage and loads of special effects and hightech. It has more than 100 professional dancers, dressed in 500 stunning costumes, designed by the french star designer Thierry Mugler. And what is it all about? The extraterrestrials are among us. Anyone who drifts through Berlin at night can sense it. Among them a diva, who lives in Berlin’s TV tower and feels more drawn to the aliens than to her fellow human beings. A love between heaven and earth? This requires the powers of Nefertiti. Her bust on Museum Island makes her Berlin’s most famous inhabitant. Every night she comes to life as the extraterrestrials’ queen. But where did she come from and what has kept her young for 3,400 years? Now that we've seen it: No more words: If you are coming to Berlin and want to enjoy a flamboyant stage spectacle in a breathtaking goosebump atmosphere – then THE WYLD is what you should go for. Amen.

THE WYLD, Friedrichstadtpalast, Friedrichstraße 107, D-10117 Berlin-Mitte
Still running until July 16th, get more informations and your ticket here:
