With its vintage-cluttered cabinets, gilded mirrors and glass cases, this small Schöneberg boutique feels like walking into the over-sized closet of a silent movie star. The originalcondition date back to 1850-1950, with the bulk from the 1920s-1940s.
Think floor-length 1950s evening gowns, black velvet busts with long silk skirts (€50-200), mint-condition grey, black and brown wool suits and a pair of ruby-encrusted, gold cuff links to match. There are racks of cotton day dresses with obscure geometric patterns and your typical 1920s low-waisted dresses alongside an impressive collection of floral knitted handbags. While much of the stock would strain the budget of the average Berliner, Mimi rents a selection of the clothing, and most of their bags, ties and purses are under €50, giving everyone a chance to channel their inner Marlene.
