Berlin Summer Market @ Neue Heimat

As the giveaway clothing layers suggest, the 'Summer' part of this week's must-go market was more operative than literal, with Berlin's weather certainly feelin' a tad fresher of late. Nonetheless, the lacking heat was more than compensated for by the sunny vibes at Neue Heimat's latest market offering. A two week special (it's on next Wednesday too), the event purveyed a dreamy display of design, fashion, food and beats.

A wholesome and diverse crop of the city's freshest firms in the worlds of fashion, product and interior design permeated Neue Heimat's expansive walls. Featuring THE SHIT SHOP, German Garment, HOWL by Maria Glück, Perlensäue, Twisted Talents and way more, the splendiferous selection of well-crafted goodies was just a bit tantalising.

After navigating the labyrinth of expertly designed wares, you could then treat yourself to a first-class coiffure at resident hair salon Persona non Grata, a spot of beard grooming by top barber Rock-A-Ticky, some talon maintenance via THE SHIT SHOP's pop-up nail studio. A tattoo you say? They had that covered too.

As is characteristic of these kinda markets, the food and bev line-up - if a little pricey by Berlin standards - was very handsome indeed. From fine fish dishes courtesy of Glut & Späne, to froyo vans and artisan cakes (salted caramel banana cake say wha), there was a lotta good food for thought.

To round-up, definitely worth catching it if you can. Check its second and final installment next Wednesday 27th August, 6pm - midnight.
