Wilde Heimat

Wilde Heimat is another place I completely fell in love on Mitte’s Torstraße. Looking for 1950s-only furniture and home decorations in Berlin? That’s probably the most perfect spot to dig into. At a first sight it feels like as if Wes Anderson’s production team decided to sell its film sets. Well, I would rather say that it’s Anderson who can look for props right here for an upcoming film.

Lunettes Selection

Another spot to visit and buy at when in Berlin‘s Mitte district? Lunettes Selection. Whether you’re looking for classy sunnies or rare, vintage Pierre Cardin frames, that’s the right address for you. The store’s interior is simple, but eye-catchy (no pun intended…). The endless number of pharmacy-like shelves with a huge variety of glasses is here, ready to be opened and tried out. Take your time!

Paloma Vintage in Copenhagen

Instagram is often dubbed as the place for rare vintage shopping – and Paloma Vintage is the best prove for that. The small boutique in Copenhagen appeared in the spotlight thanks to its Insta-success. Approachable, yet quintessentially Copenhagen styling of those fashion treasures communicates to the viewer that vintage shouldn’t lay forgotten in an attic chest, but can be worn on a regular, daily basis. Paloma Vintage specializes in selling uniquely curated vintage garments and accessories (think Yves Saint Laurent wool dresses, a polka-dot Givenchy cotton jacket, a 70s Celine clutch or Hermès t-shirts with horse motifs) that look as good and chic as back in the days. If you’re not planning a trip to Copenhagen in the near future, check out Paloma Vintage’s ‘gram. But if you’re soon in the city, make sure to visist!
