Münzstraße, Berlin

Personal style is not supposed to change too much. Maybe you add something new and throw away something old, but overall should be same. My personal style is personal and I have everything I could fashion-wise wish for. Street style depends on the size of the city. In a big city like Berlin it is very diverse and you can see almost everything.

Ku’damm, Berlin

I really like the Hackescher Markt region. It carries a rather bohemian vibe and has the best street style in Berlin. Other areas are more mainstream and filled with tourists. My favourite designer is Marc Jacobs and one of my current favourite items are these sandals from Topshop. My favourite colours are grey and blue.

I’m originally from Finland, but at the moment I live in Berlin. I prefer slouchy clothes and combine them however I feel like. For example this t-shirt functions as my everyday wear but also as my nightwear. My current favourite item is this leather jacket and I like my grey dyed hair. For new ideas I look what homeless wear.

Berlin’s street style is as diverse as the city itself. I’m wearing really comfortable clothes, because at the moment I’m rushing to my university. I buy a lot of my clothes from COS, where I also work so I know what is worth buying. I prefer very simple and plain basics.

Music is a major force in my life. I’m in a band called Dadajugend Polyform and I like new wave music mixed with electro and punk. These preferences obviously affect my personal style too. I like to shop in British flea markets. Here in Berlin people wear bit uniform-like clothes and this makes its style unique.

Neue Schönhauser Straße, Berlin

Flea markets are a great source for ideas. You see clothes from previous decades, but many of them, when styled, right look new and inspiring. Today I’m mostly wearing second-hand clothes, but also some samples. I’m a womenswear designer for Cheap Monday so I wear that a lot too.

Rosenthaler Straße, Berlin

My friends describe my style black’n’comfortable. I choose to wear mainly clack and I spice it up with colourful details. Stylish and artistic people around me give me new ideas. Most of my friends are designers and I’m a jewellery designer for Hanna af Ekström. My favourite brands are Swedish Acne and Cheap Monday.

Just Berlin Lust
I'm going to Berlin next week (24-28.June). And hopefully I can take pictures there. If you have any suggestions where to go or if there is something happening, let me know.


Pikk str, Tallinn

I like to use details from Estonian traditional clothes and combine them with more modern pieces. These shoes and belt are one of the examples. I today bought a new pair of traditional shoes. Estonian folklore isn’t the only one that interests me. I recently went to Mexico and the colourful textiles and motives used in their clothes are overwhelming.

Rotermann’s block, Tallinn

Most of my clothes are tailored, because then I know they will fit perfectly. My mother buys all these different Vogues and I like to browse them for ideas. Anna Sui is a great designer, because her creations are so creative. I also like Miu Miu’s shoes. I’m actually living in Tartu so if I go shopping I either come to Tallinn or go abroad. Today I'm wearing smart clothes, because I went to theatre.

Estonia Blvd, Tallinn

I don’t want to have one certain style, but I don’t mind if someone else has it. I like to experiment with new things and try new looks. I make most of my own clothes. I go to shops, gather some ideas and later on combine details and cuts I saw in a way they would work on me.

Kohvicum, Tallinn

Today is such a beautiful day and I wanted to express my positive mood through my clothes. I think I’m quite artistic person, because I like to play musical instruments, act, draw and I like to be playful in fashion too. However, I don’t think about fashion, it comes intuitively. Today I’m wearing a dress and stockings that used to belong to my mother.

Kohvicum, Tallinn

My style is ever-changing. Only a year ago I was emo and before that I preferred rock style, but I always like second-hand clothes. I already have quite of a collection. It is important that clothes (at least on some level) match. My favourite colours are brown, yellow and orange – very warm shades. I absolutely dislike sparkly and über-feminine clothes.

Doris-Marii and Epp,
Sauna str, Tallinn

We both like very colourful clothes and usually shop at second-hands. The best places to shop in Tallinn are flea market at Balti Jaam and Paavli’s shop. ‘
Epp: For me fashion magazines don’t really matter. If you see something nice, then ok, but I don’t look for something particular nor do I have favourite designers.
Doris- Marii: I don’t care about designers either. Currently I’m making a maxi dress for myself.

Viru str, Tallinn

I think I have a classical style. I prefer smart clothes and I like to shop in places that don’t focus too much on trends. Trends change but your true style should remain the same. I have so many favourite labels, for example Dolce & Gabbana, then Jil Sander, where I got this bag and I also like high-street labels such as Benetton, where I got this wrap sweater.
