Red Carpet – Henrik’s World of Glamour

A long time has passed since our last Red Carpet report! It was hard to choose from all the events we attended, but we’ve chosen a little selection of interesting events. Berlinagenten is back, baby!

Fashion Week Berlin

Every winter Berlin turns into one big fat catwalk that every aspiring fashionista, paparazzi and blogger in the city wants to be invited to! We kicked off the week of glamour and fashion at the luxurious Versace Store Opening on Kudamm, sipping on outrageously delicious cocktails as Vogue’s editor in chief Christiane Arp and Germany’s Next Topmodel winner Sara Nuru were constantly chased by a horde of eager paparazzis.

The Porsche Design night at Tausend Bar  wasn’t any less spectacular. Porsche Design turned elegance and precision into an exquisite collection. The athletic touch gives their clothes a distinctive look that was hugely applauded by the audience.

Heading over to Matthias Maus Mbrilliant night at Felix club we found the event was hugely sought after and attracted a crowd of curious onlookers and high nosed fashion snobs alike. The latest trend: when the models enter the catwalk and you’re in the front row, quickly look at your phone and make a point of being too cool to look at the dresses.

The NMGMT Night at Apartment Bar on top of Amano Grand Central was a welcome change to the catwalks – all the movers, shakers, and leading players from the international fashion & beauty scene got their party game going. Less fashion, more dancing! Berlin demands it!

Erika Lust at Berlinale

When Erika Lust invited us to the theatrical screening of her feministic approach to grown-up movies, how could we have said no! Who hasn’t dreamt of watching classy porn with 400 people on the big screen? With crystal-clear images, high production standards and user-committed storylines her project xconfessions.com sure stands out from the rest of the industry. After making it through the few two movies, it sure wasn’t only her project that was standing out. Crazy experience, but if it fits anywhere, it’s in Berlin!

Weyde Club Business Opening

When the world famous Berghain architects design a new techno club in Berlin, the expectations are bound to be high. Located in Schöneweide, Weyde Club’s business opening left us with mixed feelings, though. With electricity cables sticking out of the walls, a somewhat cocky entertainer to greet us and a DJ who didn’t do anything but press play, we found the most enjoyable part of the evening was when we left and were presented with a flashy UBS stick. That is one marvellous stick, though.

 Vaudeville

Vaudeville at Tipi is where the ghost of Berlin’s roaring twenties meets the open minded Berlin of 2016. Producer Sheila Wolf adds new dimensions to classy Burlesque shows by featuring thrilling Boylesque und Queerlesque performances, complimented by outstanding artistic acts and carbaret adventures. The third edition was completely sold out – but the show that Berlinagenten isn’t invited to has yet to be invented. We lived through a night of flowing champagne and perfomances, sometimes wildly funny, sometimes dazzling, sometimes plain sexy. We can’t wait for number four!

Cecconis Restaurant

 When Soho House launches a new project, you can be sure it’s going to be good. Especially if it includes hand-made pasta and a selection of Italy’s tastiest temptations. With an open kitchen, marble floor, wood oven and an outside terrace, newly opened restaurant Cecconi’s is the perfect addition to Berlin’s Soho House. It’s located right next to The Store on ground level – you can go from shopping to coffee to culinary treats in split seconds. A-celebs from all over the world are regulars at Soho House, so be ready for some potential star-spotting.

Hotel Zoe

Amano’s latest addition to the Capitols flourishing hotel scene makes for a cozy getaway location in the heart of Berlin. The opening event revealed a chiq boutique hotel, also home to the world famous Gin&Tonic Bar. Apart from the mind blowing view on Berlin’s skyline form the roof terrace, Hotel Zoe creates a luxurious and stylish ambience with dark contrasts and warm lightning. It’s both eye-candy and feel-good oasis without feeling pretentious. The opening event proved that the re-opening of Gin&Tonic Bar in Hotel Zoe was a splendid idea. We’ll definitely be back soon!

Red Carpet – Henriks World Unplugged

We’re famous, we’re famous! Finally we’ve joined ranks with Hanno Kofler, Will Smith and the Power Rangers. Yes, you guessed correctly. We were on Pay TV! (for autograph cards please contact the office).

The renowned programme Spiegel TV Wissen shot an episode dedicated to Berlin’s flourishing clubbing scene. Guess whom they chose to be their star for the night? That’s right. Our one and only Henrik DiCaprio, Emperor of red carpets and Defier of booze curfews.

Film crews are’t the most popular guests in the clubbing scene. Few people apart from us enjoy seeing their faces on YouTube looking totally hammered, and understandably so – most people just don’t have the face for it. But give Henrik 5 minutes and a cell phone and club doors swing open faster than a Primark door on Summer Sale. The film crew couldn’t believe their luck.

And it wouldn’t run out, either: our nightlife tour set new standards. There was everything from enjoying the sunset with drinks and laughs high above Berlin’s rooftops to dressing up as sexy dancers in an edgy Burlesque wonderworld called Prinzipal Kreuzberg. We got some scandalous looks from the Burlesque dancers when we took the film team into the dressing room, but who cares! Before completely dancing our socks off at the Pearl, we served a refreshment that made the film crew drool over their equipment. Currywurst and champagne – the style of West Berlin.

By now both guests and film crew had realized what we do is far from your usual pub crawl. We took both guests and camera team to a world they hadn’t even dreamt of before. Berlin’s nightlife, 100% unplugged. Check out the full video here.

Barca Avenue Night

You don’t win the Champions League in Berlin every day, but if you do, you better get ready for the craziest night of your life. And there’s no better club to pop champagne bottles in than in our second living room, the trendy Avenue club! We always get in, no matter the party, hence we feel obliged to present to you this rare exclusive footage of the night of the champions. With guests like Shakira, Dirk Nowitzki and of course the whole Barca crew the atmosphere was completely off the hook. But see for yourself!

5 Years Volt

Food porn! Food porn, everyone! Restaurant Volt has been a real heavy weight on Berlin’s culinary radar for quite some time now, so the invitation for their 5th anniversary almost made us wet our pants with excitement. A premium selection of Berlin’s finest chefs served an immensely satisfying range of tasty snacks, cheese and how else could it be – booze. Champagne upon arrival? Why not, it’s 1pm already! Another one? Yessir! We were especially impressed with Christoph Hauser from Herz&Niere, who served tartar of duck heart with wild cherries, marjoram and mustard seeds. So good. Hungry yet? Have a look at the pictures and you’ll wish you were a Berlinagent yourself.

Thaos Lindner’s Euphoria

“Euphoria. Suspense. Extasy. Excitement. Frenzy. Fever. Excess. Fire. Ember. Courage.” Let me think… uhm, yep, this must refer to us. Why else would an other worldly creature wearing close to nothing but a reflecting mask pick us from all the audience and give us a card with these words on it? The Trust Bar in Mitte set a dark yet atmospheric mood for the extraordinaire launch event for Thaos Lindner‘s latest collection “Euphoria” – definitely one of the hottest fashion week events. The models took a remarkable liking to us, handing us not one but four of the much coveted cards of wisdom as they went down the catwalk. The envious fashionistas sitting next to us wouldn’t get over it – why did Berlinagenten get all the attention? After less than an hour the strangely satisfying show was over and we got a little tipsy, before taking the trip back to reality.

Amerano Fashion Summer Night

Flashy club nights with hot chicks and overpriced booze are your favourite thing? Welcome to the First Upper West Club. Once a sleazy afterhour bar, the club has been completely remade and with flashy 360° surround LEDs now looks like a wet partying dream. Amerano, known for making awesome-but-pricy tailor-made suits, was the perfect candidate to hold their fashion week party at Upper West Club. Since Berlinagenten won’t be forced into roles, we came their looking casual cool as usual, opposed to the fancy-schmancys who nervously eyed us from the corner. What can we say? We rocked it.

Red Carpet: Henrik Meets The Fashion Week

Berlin loves fashion! Fashion loves Berlin! Once a year the high pitched battlecry for new trends assembles countless labels in the heart of Europe to present their latest creations at the Berlin fashion week. This year was all about record breaking numbers, more visitors than ever, more than 3000 brands and about 200 glamorous events from celebrations to catwalks related to the happening took place all over the city. We’ve seen some great shows and jaw-dropping fashion, but let’s cut right to the most important point. The parties!

Tommy Hilfiger Opening

Tommy Hilfiger goes Berlin. His new anchor store in a cool, urban neighbourhood in Mitte sells anything from women’s, men’s and children’s wear to Hilfiger Denim and fragrances.

The grand opening came in the disguise of an exclusive in-store event with special guests like model Julia Restoin Roitfeld, the equally beautiful Eva Padberg, “Jungle”-Queen Melanie Müller, Olivia Jones, football player Christoph Metzelder and American singer&songwriter Chris Cab, who pampered our ears with his beautiful live perfomances over the evening. We mixed ourown fragrance at Frau Tonis Parfum before we left. Fancy.

The Kooples Party

The Kooples. Sounds strange, right? That’s because they’re French. The label recently opened their second store in Berlin, slowly but steady coming closer to their target of world domination. To make sure their latest collection would get the attention it deserved, they invaded England. Joking! Just the Chelsea Bar on every hipster’s favourite street, Torstraße. Catchy indie tunes performed by Baxter Dury and exquisite snacks by one of Neukölln’s finest, Café Roamers, definitely made the evening stand out from your usual night on Torstraße! Go Kooples!

USM Project50 

Nope, USM Project50 isn’t some undercover operation by the US forces. The swiss company (USM) invited artists, designers and students to attend their fashion week party, where apparently fashion isn’t limited to clothing anymore. USM is looking to reinvent the modular furniture business and tries to lure creative people from around the globe by ensuring the booze at their parties never runs out. An evil, yet successful strategy. We danced along to the live perfomance by Berlin-based band Schwarz Don’t Crack and might have had a few shots too many. But psshhh!!! 

Lavera Showfloor

The launch event of the Lavera Eco Fashion Show traditionally is one of our favourites. They pulled off a great show last year and managed to top it this year, so it was no wonder that it turned to be a true celebrity showcase. Models like Elisabetta Canalis, Bonnie Strange and Eveline Hall wore sustainably produced avantgarde couture and natural cosmetics, hence the motto “Celebrating Natural Beauty”. The showroom was stacked with VIPs – Lavera knows how to make an impression and the demand for seats at their shows is huge. We’ll be back next time!

Mercedes Benz Catwalk

We couldn’t believe our eyes when Boris Becker’s daughter Anna Ermakowa made an appearance as smooth as a supermodel at the fashion week and majestically presented some of Riani’s finest dresses. Just a few seats from us we could see her mother’s eyes sparkle with pride each time Anna went by. To top it all off, Riana’s chief designer Ulrich Schulte accompanied her for the final walk where they were greeted by thunderous applause by the enchanted crowd. Celebs like Cheyenne Savannah, Natascha Ochsenknecht, Olivia Jones, Marie Nasemann, Inka Bause, Bettina Cramer and former “Modern Talking” singer Thomas Anders took up the places around us and eagerly awaited Anna’s big performance. A wait well worth it.

Die Antwoord Nailed It

Die Antwoord have proven they know how to rock Berlin with glam and style. Even though Berlinagenten keep a busy schedule when it comes to partying, it has been a while since we’ve last seen anything that went straight through the roof like Die Antwoord. Either they have some of the most passionate fans in the world or somebody was handing out ecstasy pills at the doors (both seems likely enough). We danced through steaming hot 1 1/2 hours to a hypnotic mix of electro-trash, pop, indie and african drum grooves. Perfect start for an extended night of clubbing. If you haven’t heard of Die Antwoord yet, here’s your chance to catch up.
