Spruced-CityguideLondon-FranziskaSteinle After writing about some of my favourite spots in Berlin, I wanted to ask my friends to share their love for the cities they live in. London just had to be first because... I love it already. I went to university there, met James there, basically became an adult there (well, sort of). But all of that was roughly 150 years ago, so every time I go back now, [...]

Spruced-Thone-Negron1 When I grow up, I want to wear dresses like these every day. That’s what I thought when I first discovered Thone Negrón a couple of years ago. It’s the label by Berlin designer Ettina Berrios Negrón (by the way: when I grow up, I'd like to wear that name). She originally wanted to start her own brand after she finished her fashion studies. Then she [...]
