At Darklands

I still haven’t fully recovered from the sleep deprivation caused by all the crazy partying I did in Berlin, but I’m slowly getting united with what was left behind on Thursday. Introducing here my new hooded Boris Bidjan Saberi cardigan which I, after taking a long view, acquired from my absolute favorite Berlin boutique, Darklands, on the day of our arrival. This pretty little number is made of bamboo and is so soft and comfortable that I spent the rest of my four day mini vacation literally living and almost sleeping in it. The only time I gave it a little rest was on Saturday, when the sun was beaming from a blue sky, making it too hot to even wear a shirt for that matter. So yes, our destiny is sealed, we are pretty much inseparable now and will stick together through thick and thin, until unraveling threads (I hope never) do us apart.

Hooded cardigan: Boris Bidjan Saberi
Tank top: Rick Owens
Jeans: Cheap Monday
Boots: Ann Demeulemeester
Bag: Self-made
Rings: Kalevala Koru & custom made etc.

  1. Just discovered your blog and I love your style!

    Bamboo is a great fabric, very breathable and sustainable. Great layering, I wish the weather would hurry up and cool down over here so that I could break out the layers too!

    1. That’s great to hear and my warmest welcome to Fashion Flux!:) Bamboo is really great material from that point of view too, I’m very careful nowadays when it comes to materials, so I was happy to see that this was in fact made of such a good material.

      We have had a cold weather here in Finland for awhile now, Berlin was actually surprisingly warm, though cold enough to layer (=perfect!). Hopefully the weather will drop down there as well, so you get to layer. Definitely best part of the fall/winter season!!

  2. Hi!

    I just wanted to tell you, that i’ve been reading your blog for like, forever! I just can’t really descripe how much i love your sense of style. I’m inspired!

  3. Love the hooded gardigan!

    You look just like my old classmate named Elisabet, but she would be a bit older so you can’t be the same person 🙂

    1. Thanks, though I’m not sure if my style is typically Finnish. 😉 I think most of the people here wear track suits hahaha.
      I think our winter is too long but summers are just wonderful: the best time to visit Finland, for sure!

  4. Beware of Darklands Berlin!
    i bought a jacket online from Campbell at Darklands Berlin (affiliated with in Vancouver) in Aug 2009, but never received the item. after numerous emails, Campbell put the blame on DHL and said he had started the claims process. i emailed him each month to ask for refund but he kept saying he is waiting for DHL. since June 2010, he has stopped returning my email – how rude! it’s now been over a year and Campbell still has not returned my 400+ euros. i am disappointed and angry. how could someone be so irresponsible? no wonder they called the store a guerrilla/nomadic store – they just take the money and run! buyers beware!

    1. I’m sorry to hear that you have been unlucky. I have never had any problems with Darklands, quite the contrary, besides I think this kind of comment should be directed directly to them and not my blog. Hope you get your thing sorted though!
