The Corner, Berlin

40 Französische Strasse
Germany 10117
Tel: 49 30 206 70940's insider take:

The Corner is Berlin's small, high-end department store. The entrance features a book and magazine section stocking what seems like every Assouline title ever published; then come watches and accessories and, finally, the clothes. Women's dresses, skirts, tops, and jackets come from names like Balenciaga, Fendi, and Zac Posen, starting in the high three figures and going way, way up from there. For men, a somewhat more insouciant, rich-kid-in-sneakers attitude prevails, as exemplified by Rick Owen black suede high-tops for €795 ($1,170), balanced out by elegant jackets and shirts by Kilgour and Lanvin. The staff of offbeat-looking beauties is surprisingly helpful.

Mondays through Fridays 10:30 am to 7:30 pm, Saturdays 10 am to 7 pm.
