Contributions Reader Find

By Alice Cottle in Cool Travel on Friday 11 May 2012

Berlin-based tattooist Peter Aurisch creates these fantastic works of art directly onto the skin of his clients. Surreal worlds appear to be penciled on. A self-confessed tattoo-snob, I have to say that these images have changed my perspective on sketch work art, as well as effectivity in splendour and brilliance, of which is here evinced through the medium of skin.

Sunil Pawar Reader Find

By Sunil Pawar in New Fashion on Wednesday 8 February 2012

Ricky Powell is commonly known as the Fourth Beastie Boy and Def Jam’s unofficial chronicler. A New York native photographer, it seems logical that he has teamed up with PONY for a limited edition range of dunks that dropped in Berlin last week.

Say you’re wandering the streets of Berlin and you happen upon a vintage milk and cheese truck that has a long line of people queued up outside it. What would you expect them to be waiting to buy: Frankfurters? Sauerkraut? A flotilla’s worth of German beer?

Acoustic techno from Berlin trio Brandt Brauer Frick

Stuart McBratney Contributor

By Stuart McBratney in New Music on Saturday 15 October 2011

‘Acoustic techno’ sounds like an oxymoron. Yet this is exactly what German trio Brandt Brauer Frick produce. Those familiar with the pops and clicks of Berlin’s minimal sound will find their sound strangely familiar. For the rest, just sit back and enjoy the poker-faced musicality, it all its faux electro glory.

Minga Berlin socks

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Products on Wednesday 6 July 2011

Here’s a little something you may not know about me: I love a good pair of socks. A well designed set of socks is the ultimate luxury. It adds a small touch of colour and personality under a standard work attire. And a good set of socks can be a real mood lifter. It’s your little secret. So I was delighted to check out the awesome range from MINGA BERLIN. Now, these aren’t ordinary socks. They’re beautifully designed using the finest organic cotton. But it’s the colour palette and quality of MINGA BERLIN’s socks that really lifts you.
