With our beloved Mayor Klaus Wowereit leaving his post it also seems that his once so popular slogan “Berlin is poor but sexy” seems no longer suitable. Berlin is still not exactly rich, but with the development of the past 5 years you can’t simply label it as poor – “It’s complicated” would describe it more appropriately. But one thing is sure: Berlin is still damn sexy. And that’s not just because of all the ridiculously hot bearded guys and cute girls in town. It’s because Berlin is still one of the most sexually liberal, expressive and diverse cities you will come across on this planet. It’s ruthlessness, mysteriousness and unexpectedness is what draws so many people here and gives them the pleasure of a lifetime.
To celebrate Berlin’s sexiness we compiled a contemporary guide to the erotic side of Berlin featuring all the sexy places in town including shops, parties, galleries and activities. And for the new Mayor we have a suggestions for Berlin’s next slogan: “Cool and sexy”.

Everybody who follows our blog knows that we are huge fans and supporters of Berlin’s fashion scene. We organized fashion shows, photo shootings, fashion film screenings, designed our own collections and even created our own fashion comedy show. Our next fashion-related project will be our Cinèma de Mode event tomorrow on October 2 featuring fashion films from Berlin and the rest of the world and we hope you can all attend.
On the occasion of this event we wanted to introduce you to Berlin labels that we consider to be outstanding in creativity and design. We also wanted to introduce you to the recent collaboration between Zalando Lounge and a couple of young Berlin labels. Zalando Lounge is an exclusive online shopping experience, where you get the chance to shop limited designs on a certain date with a special discount of up to 75%. They have recently updated their brand portfolio with a great range of Berlin labels and we think that is a great deal for the designers and their customers. After the jump we will introduce you to Sopopular, Blush, Frontrow Society, LVC by Lauren Victoria Craig and Umasan.
