APC @mattmar.jpg

French boutique label offering its best in minimal design to Berlin. Founded by Jean Touitou in France, infamously renowned as โ€˜the gabbiest man in fashion.โ€™ But hey, we didnโ€™t say that.

The quality and design are timeless in nature which allow it to be favoured by a wide range of demographics; anyone can wear these clothes! They prove time and again that unsexy and understated fashion is the new fresh. A bold statement that pretty much captures the unity in Berlinโ€™s fashion scene.

Darklands @darklandsberlin.jpg

The choice of brands, store location and interior design of Darklands is truly one of a kind, even with Berlinโ€™s unique fashion landscape. It feels more of a museum that offers an excellent selection of clothing that resonate a goth glam look and hard to find labels. But be prepared to pay over โ‚ฌ500 for a T-shirt. Uniqueness sells.
