SHOP­PING

Sum­mer has fi­nally ar­rived, and Annabelle Mal­lia plans to make the most of it.

Where Berlin - - CONTENTS -

Pack your beach bag now and get ready to make the most of sum­mer.

If you're like me, you've spent the last few months try­ing to burn off those win­ter treats and pre­pare your body for the big un­veil­ing down by the sea – or, in Berlin's

case, lake. But never mind the lit­tle diet slip-ups along the way – a few care­fully se­lected ac­ces­sories thrown into your beach bag will en­sure you're look­ing good re­gard­less, whether on the golden sands of Waikiki or of Berlin's pop­u­lar Strand­bad Wannsee.

A spe­cialty shop that can ad­vise on which colors, cut, and pat­terns to wear to draw the at­ten­tion away from any trou­ble ar­eas is the key to a con­fi­dent beach va­ca­tion. Kör­per­nah (Uh­land­str. 39, www.ko­er­per­nah-berlin.de) has years of ex­pe­ri­ence find­ing the per­fect suit for ev­ery woman. Their flag­ship store in Wilmers­dorf car­ries a su­per-fem­i­nine se­lec­tion by brands such as Cyell, Lidea, or Water­cult, in ad­di­tion to beach ac­ces­sories like bags, tow­els, and sarongs. Or visit Vi­a­bella ( Traut­e­naustr. 12, www.vi­a­bella-dessous.de), whose per­son­al­ized ser­vice will help you feel com­fort­able strut­ting along the shores with styles from Rosa Faia and Seafolly.

Stylish shades are also es­sen­tial. Make a visit to the

Ic! Berlin show­room (Max-Beer-Str. 17, www. ic-berlin.de) to se­lect your fa­vorite de­signer pairs, pre­sented on vin­tage flight-at­ten­dant trol­leys. Th­ese feath­erlight glasses are made to last, with a ge­nius, screw­less spring-hinge clip. For ex­clu­sive vin­tage sun­glasses, Lunettes

Se­lec­tion ( Torstr. 172. www.lunettes-se­lec­tion. de) will have you cov­ered. From '80s “nerd” glasses to '50s horn-rimmed and cat-eye frames, the eye­wear on dis­play here is also a les­son in fash­ion his­tory. Top your en­sem­ble with a wide-brimmed sum­mer hat to pro­vide shade wher­ever you go. Hut Styler (www.hut-styler.de), at the Alexa shop­ping cen­ter, has a huge se­lec­tion of fe­dora, trilby, panama, and straw hats to pro­tect you from harsh rays. For lux­ury, visit the Rike Feurstein store (www. rike­feurstein.com) just off Rosa-Lux­em­burg-Platz, with its trilby style hats made from 100 per­cent panama straw, seagrass, or pa­per. The Ber­lin­based de­signer has won mul­ti­ple awards for her hand­crafted pieces, which blur the line be­tween fash­ion and art. Don't for­get to throw in sun­screen and a bot­tle of wa­ter, as sun­burn and heat­stroke have never been en vogue.
