Last Thursday, 21st of June, Dutch fashion label Schepers Bosman presented their new collection from Paris, France. The Spring / Summer 2019 menswear collection is all about ‘being a tourist in your own city’. With their fashion design Schepers Bosman try to paint an image of a big city, with it’s unknown, undiscovered peripheral areas.
Schepers Bosman gathered exotic elements from their surroundings in Amsterdam, which is situated in the New-West part of the city. Fifties mosaics and murals found in that neighborhood have been translated into abstract prints and cast as a layer over Schepers Bosman’s modern, elaborated holiday wardrobe, Dutch fashion at it’s best.

The Bijenkorf (Beehive in Dutch) is the oldest and most high-end luxury department store in The Netherlands. One year ago they added a premium service: shopping with personal assistance. It was long overdue and about time for Mimi Berlin Blogger Team to finally shop with one of the personal shoppers at The Bijenkorf in Amsterdam.
We must say we had a lovely experience. First, our personal shopper, Ms Kranenborg, took us onto the “floor” in search of a suit for the male party of our Blogger Team. After a while the choice was narrowed down to 3 suits, which were brought to the special, very large and comfortable, dressingroom or so-called lounge (decorated entirely in pink and brown tones) on the second floor. During fittings the female part of our team got to sit down on the couch and eat cookies. After we decided upon the purchase there was champagne ànd an experienced team of tailors! Continue reading →

In Amsterdam, just like in any other city, bicycles aren’t pretty. Bikes are used every day and they need to be kept outside because nobody has a shed, and only a few get to live on a ground floor. Children’s Bicycles are also kept outside, mostly locked with a thick, fat chain so they won’t get stolen.
Appdikted @mimiberlin has been keeping his eye out for these colorful mini bikettes. <click that link to see more images taken earlier
