dottirDOTTIR introduces North-Atlantic avant-garde fashion design and rare handcraft to the Berlin fashion scene. Iceland, Greenland and The Faroe Islands. Installation by artist Hulda Ros Gudnadottir.
Torstrasse 68, 10119 Berlin Mitte (BoldBerlin).
NO NEWS = GOOD NEWS. WE HAVE BEEN BUSY. THE FINAL COUNTDOWN HAS STARTED. CLOSING ON SATURDAY THE 28TH. YOUR FINAL CHANCE TO MAKE THE INVESTMENT OF YOUR LIFETIME.
ZiZi is wearable art that was launched in the dottirDOTTIR pop-up. It is the result of collaboration of artists Hulda Ros Gudnadottir and Joseph Marzolla with a local Nuuk handcrafter Louis Isbosethsen during their trip to Nuuk in April. The trip was sponsored by Nordic Culture Point and resulted in many different types of networking and collaborations established. The ZiZi is only produced one item per piece and the collaboration is taken further to the Berlin audience as each item demands creativity of the user.

Nordic networking and cooperation. dottirDOTTIR certaintly creates the opportunity to put North-Atlantic fashion design on the German radar and exposes hard-to-find handicraft to new audience in Berlin. But more importantly dottirDOTTIR also provides a rare opportunity for networking and collaboration amongst the participating artist that despite being neighbors rarely work together or share information and ideas. These pictures are taken during the preparation of the special performance event.
MUNDI clothes are arriving! We will be unpacking all week but today we brought limited amount of yummy Ty shirts to the shop. First comes – first gets! Also new in the shop are leather pants by Barbara i Gongini that are super exclusive and carved reindeer antler necklaces by Samuel Korneliusson. Come and take a look before it is gone!
The pop up shop has started very well and we are open on Sunday during Fashion Week. We will select into the shop so it is first comes first gets. Don´t miss your favorite stuff!
For the first round:
Barbara i Gongini:
leather jacket that everyone is loving, rubber dresses that don´t seize to amaze, leggings that are a must to have, bag to die for, leather pants that you have always wanted and couple of more things that you should at least take a look at.
colorful handknitted sweaters in zigzag and other pattern that people don´t stop asking for, machine knitted daiva scarfs and mittens that will keep you warm throughout the winter and handknitted beanis that you will want to take home and cuddle with. Who does´t want to have jumper with balls. We need balls!
Eyglo´s trademark bag is gone but we still have the unusual dino bag that will set you apart from the rest. The beautiful hairdressers are the shop staff favorites and the dino swimsuits are like a gift from heaven.
From GREENLAND INUIK has trusted us for some one-off items handmade by the designer herself. You will be wearing something truly unique made with lots of love.
If you want to go more GREENLAND STREET we have selected some cool T-shirts from Bibi Chemnitz in good connection with the moon and some comfy tops that almost left the shop today in hands of an eager customer.
HRINGA´s silver jewelry is going out really fast which is no surprise when one consider the suprising motives and reasonable price.
Scintilla bedlinen and towels take fashion into textiles with the focus on high quality and Hlin Reykdal herself picked necklaces for the first selection. Hlin Reykdal is growing at a light speed as a label these days.
The first items sold in the shop was Beach Pearls handcrafted necklace by crafter Kristin Helgadottir of Thingeyri Iceland. Other gems from Greenlandic and Icelandic crafters are fast disappearing from our shelves.
In the week we will change the selection and bring in more designers. It will be BIG.
Hectic days behind us! The shop opened with a celebration on Thursday night and will stay open all weekend for Fashion Week visitors. Pictures above are from a special pre-opening performance event where designers collaborated with performance artists displaying their SS13 collections for interested journalists and buyers. It was something that left an impression!
