In Berlin I rediscovered, among others, the value of simplicity's extravaganza. You don't need too much luxury and expensive dresses or jewelry. You should go to the limits - and ever far beyond - of your originality, but do it creatively and without too much money and showing off. For a local young Berliner, overexposing fashion brands is outrageous. Instead, many local brands or no-brands are preferred and cultivated, mainly in the Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg area.
I discovered Hong Bock in Europa Center, very close to the high-life of fashion in Berlin. I loved the nice colours and the discretion of various jewelry combinations. A delicate Asian touch brought to the cold Berlin.
