Linierie - Lingerie with Style on Linienstraße
On one of my recent wanderings through Mitte, I discovered Linierie. I must have overlooked a small stretch of Linienstraße for over two years, because that's how long Sabine Kremke and Clara Brandenburg have been offering chic and exquisite underwear in their elegant store.
Their products range from minimal to lacy lingerie, from dressing gowns to nightwear and swimwear. Partly playful, partly purist - the collections by labels like Aikyou, Zimmerli, Hoff by Hoff or Stella McCartney hang coyly on dark stained wooden rails, which invite customers to touch and browse.
Delicate bras, panties and fine cotton vests all rest on velvet hangers, vying for your attention. A wide range of sizes are beautifully stored in cream colored boxes - including more uncommon ones like an 80A or 70D. The owners aim to please every woman who enters their shop, and they make a particular effort to stock items that appeal to every taste.
I personally lusted after the 1920s style bathing suits from the label 1979. All in all this discreet shop with its tasteful interior and vintage references really impressed me. I can’t think of another lingerie store in Berlin with such a well-honed sense of understatement.
