Bread & Butter a Berlino, giorno I Arvottu
La Bella Principessa a Milano presents:
On Tuesday I flew to Berlin via Zurich. I was sure to miss my flight or at least my luggage with the short connection change (30min), but I made it. The trip started kind of funny… I made some new companionships already onboard and I got driven to the hotel by two young gentlemen and a lady. My friends were already in town and they wanted me to join them for dinner. I was so tired of all the hectic past weeks that I just felt like having a glass of red wine in the hotel’s summer garden. I stayed in the Kempinski Hotel Bristol, which I can highly recommend for everybody. It felt like in Kämp, Helsinki.
The next day I slept late and had brunch in Starbucks (I missed the breakfast time). I love hotel beds and I basically spend my trips abroad sleeping… slight waste of money, but I do need my beauty sleep once in a while.
The Bread and Butter– tradeshow for selected brands presented a clear and concentrated brand portfolio in Berlin Tempelhof. B&B’s new location is a historical and architectural masterpiece in the heart of Berlin: the former airport Berlin-Tempelhof. The generous C-shape of the complex includes seven airport hangars, an impressive departure hall and a roofed airfield – a design which allows for a totally new approach in segmentation. The leading brands, labels and designers of Street- and urban wear showed their collections in a brand environment and areas according to their focus. This structure guaranteed the best possible orientation, resulting in an efficient visit of BREAD & BUTTER. B&B’s aim for the future is to position Berlin as the internationally leading fashion metropolis in the segment of contemporary clothing culture.
I met my friends and we spread with Betta to explore the huge area. The airport was extraordinary and the weather humid and hot. We tried to see as much as possible, but it just was too much.
The best exhibition room was obviously Silvian Heach. They offered some fresh fruits and wine. We had to have a break stopping there.
The guys were nice there as well… of course they turned out to be Italians.
Late afternoon the sky broke and we were sweaty and tired, more than eager to get back to the hotel. Surprise, surprise the taxi line was more than 200 meters. I hate public transportation! In the evening we had dinner at a nice Austrian restaurant close to the hotel called Ottenthal. I had to try Wiener Schnitzel, it was good!!!
Ps. I am in the original B&B Review movie… unbelievable. ;o)

The history says that Wiener Schnitzel may have originated in Milan. How is the dish called in Italian?
