Don’t Shoot The Messengers

Don't Shoot The Messengers

This Berlin-via-Canada/New Zealand boutique is sable-chic, sexy, and home to some of the finest shopping in an area already packed with designer labels. Black is the keyword here, with a few elegant pieces in peach and white lending a breezy spring feel to their SS11 line. Unlike the unisex severity of designers like Rad Hourani or the urban-armor of Rick Owens, however, DSTM offer a more gender-structured, sheer take on high-fashion.

Lines are accentuated with masculine leather, with feminine silk to soften. Nothing feels heavy or clunky; there’s a sleekness to each piece that makes it feel like a natural extension of your body. The staff are marvelously friendly, with no pretension and a keen eye for accessorizing. Visit their shop online, or if you want the full experience (as well as the opportunity to browse the few carefully curated pieces from other designers available in-store) pop by the next time you’re in Berlin-Mitte!
