We took a stroll around the streets of Berlin this weekend and asked people what they think makes Berlin special. See for yourself and let us know your opinion in the comments! Read on…
After Berlin Fashion Week and just during the international fashion shows, there comes the question of the definition of a city’s style again. The Parisians are oh so sophisticated and a hot mess, NYC is chic and cool as ice at the same time. And is there one Berlin look? Definitely not. But do we really have to justify ourselves that we’re not as glamorous, or is our definition of allurement just something else? Anyways, we took a look around the streets in Berlin Mitte and asked people about what they think about the Berlin Look. Let us know about your opinion on Berlin style in the comments! Read on…

There was a time when street style was totally a thing. Every major city had a street style blog (or many) and of course also Berlin. But the trend had faded over the years a bit and many blogs stopped posting or changed their editorial concepts. Thanks to Instagram and success projects such as Humans of New York (and other cities that followed) street portraits totally had a comeback!
Glamcanyon used to be one of the major street style blogs (and to me personally the most beautiful one) in the early days of fashion blogs in Germany, but the flow of new styles dried up a bit a few years ago. Back then the blogger behind it, photographer Katja Hentschel, shifted her focus to other projects such as her follow-up blogs Travelettes and Glowbus. But a few months ago her passion for street portraits came back to life and she decided to revitalize Glamcanyon. Now you can again regularly find her beautiful photos of beautiful people from Berlin and other cities that she comes to. But with the new photos you can see how the eye of the photographer has developed over the years. Now it’s not anymore purely about the looks, it’s also about the personality of the portrayed person and the moment they had with the photographer. Absolutely charming! We selected some of our favorites from Berlin for you today.
This Thursday, Filippa K and Stil in Berlin invite you to work it, flaunt it and own it! In celebration of their autumn collection you’re invited to drop by, style your look with selected pieces from Filippa’s K latest autumn collection and your own clothes and accessories, say cheese and if you make it to the top three with the most innovative styles, then you’ll get to keep it! And if not, fret not, stick around, strike a pose, pucker up and cam-whore for Dario. (We know you want to…) The hottest looks will get shot and featured. Details after the pose.
While the shows and parties during Fashion Week are mostly only accessible for fashion industry people and journalists there is still a lot going on that is open for every fashion enthusiast in town.
