If you’ve been to Bikini Berlin, you’ll know all about their cool pop-up boxes! In my opinion, they are one of the core elements of the concept shopping mall because this is where Bikini Berlin provides its visitors with an abundance of inspiration, as well as giving young designers a platform to present themselves on. The pop-up boxes change every few weeks, meaning that you always get the chance to discover new labels! Since the beginning of February there have been a few new additions, which I decided to take a closer look at for you.
I’ll start with the artist Nina Nolte whose pop-up box instantly catches my eye as soon as I walk into Bikini Berlin. The reason for this is her colourful, pop-art-style paintings! Inside the box itself you’ll also find more minimalist paintings, but always with a particular themed focus: women! The female of the species is at the foreground here and portrayed in the most diverse of situations. The Art Lounge will be here until the end of April – and it’s definitely worth a visit!
Another new addition to the boxes is the Cashmere Sisters. Their mission is to reinterpret classic cashmere and create modern pieces of a high quality. The first-rate workmanship and little details instantly caught my eye – I couldn’t help running my fingers over the garments, the material just feels so amazingly soft. The accessories, including scarves and hats, also look really cosy! I’ll definitely be paying them another visit and investing in a few of their items, what about you?
I’d actually already heard of Merci Handy before I visited their pop-up box! The Parisian brand creates practical cosmetics such as hand sanitiser gel and moisturising hand creams, packaged in brightly coloured little bottles – a real must-have for beauty fans! By the way, the handy sanitiser gels aren’t only available in different colours, but also a wide range of feel-good scents. My firm favourite is Black Vanilla. Hand disinfectant has never smelled so good!
