One of a Kind for the Spring

It’s been getting sunnier and sunnier. Yesterday, I was walking around the city in the morning, and by the time the sun was out, the street lights had not been timed to go off yet. I was extremely hot in my winter jacket and realized that I need to get new clothes for the warmer weather.

Luckily, I came across some items of interest:

Hermione Flynn, a local Berlin designer, created a collection that folds, unfolds and opens in various ways. Her cocoon jumpsuit is make from lightweight Italian Virgin wool. With the adjustable waist, the jumpsuit provides multiple silhouettes, from loose to more fitted.

ARC is a New York based design studio that has a line of geometric ceramic and metal jewelry. Designer Daniela Jacobs also makes a selection of home objects. A bit futuristic with a handmade artisanal angle, the pieces provide an eclecticism that is uniquely modern.

Lee Coren designs accessories and scarves. One of her top selections is the Lago Scarf in a rich shade of Mykonos Blue. Made from all natural cotton, it’s perfect for the spring, as it does not get super hot. Handmade in Jaffa, Israel, the scarf was designed with a warmer climate in mind.

Reinterpreting the past days of pioneers and prairie settler, the London based designer combines traditional craftsmanship with eclectic silhouettes. The aesthetic that emerges reflects a simplicity that invokes the life of simpler times of the past. Irish linen, Indian traditional block print, in addition to Chinese hand woven summer fabrics, were used to piece together each of the playfully feminine pieces.


Chunky Porcelain and Tea

Previous / Next 1 of 3 Paper and Tea’s concept store in Charlottenburg is located on an eclectic residential corner. Directly off a busy street, the area has an array of interesting shopping choices, from artistic jewelry to cozy cafes and restaurants. I had never been in the area and was wandering around one weekend back in December when the shop had caught my eye. Thick handmade artisanal porcelain cups were on display in the front window.
