I HEART XMAS: T-Shirt Collection with ARMEDANGELS

Surprise! If you thought that we wouldn’t have anything special for you this Christmas: Think again! After several X-mas specials and events we also prepared something unique for you guys this year. We teamed up with sustainable fashion label ARMEDANGELS to create a very special collection of T-shirts called Cross Mountain. And the best thing is: After our scarves and leggings it is finally something for the boys! More about it and how to win the shirts after the jump.

“Mount Görli”

The collection with ARMEDANGELS is titled Cross Mountain which is the literal translation of Berlin’s most popular district Kreuzberg. This district is very special for us as so many of the places and events that we write about on I HEART BERLIN are in this amazing district.

Since our previous collections were all using Kaleidoscoping designs from our party photos I wanted to do something entirely different this time. I went out to Kreuzberg and took lots of photos of some iconic buildings such as the high rise building at Kotti and the Görlitzer Bahnhof subway station. Those buildings I stacked up like mountains and combined them with actual mountains (that were photographed in Argentina by the way). And if the designs should remind you of something, you are not mistaken: the perspective effect that I used was inspired by the famous drawings of M. C. Escher.

“Mount Kotti”

That this collection is a collaboration with ARMEDANGELS is not a coincedent. I have been thinking about working with a sustainable and fair trade brand for a while now and ARMEDANGELS is definately one of the most serious labels in this respect. All their garments are either using organic cotton or have Fair Trade and GOTS certificates, in many cases even all of those three which is really hard to accomplish in terms of production. This deserves a lot of respect for their quest to change the fashion industry and commerce. And the price level for their pieces is surprisingly low with T-Shirts starting at 29,90 EUR, so absolutely no-one has an excuse not to buy fair and green fashion.


A big thank you to our event and fashion editor Devid and Starecaser Thibaud for modeling and photographing the shirts for us!

And as Christmas is a time of sharing we are giving away 3 of those shirts to you. Just leave a comment below with a valid eMail address until Thursday at 14h with your Christmas greetings and your favorite of the 3 designs (their names are underneath the photos. The winners will receive the shirts before Christmas! The T-Shirt collection will be available to order online at ARMEDANGELS in Spring 2014. Good luck and happy Holidays!
