Our goal is to put fashion in the context of Berlin's fluid cultural scene – to take fashion off the runway and onto the streets, out of the studio and into the hands and minds of the people who not only make fashion, but also live with it.

Berlin’s artistic and cultural variety is profoundly reflected in how fashion is both worn and lived. DERZEIT reflects this character: cross-referencing fashion with other relevant themes and looking into the background stories around Fashion Week Berlin.

DERZEIT is a young and interdisciplinary publication that looks at the cultural field stylishly, critically and with a certain euphoria.

Fashion Shoots

DERZEIT features four original fashion shoots, which are exclusively produced for each issue, in colaboration with up-and-coming photographers, models & artists. The shoots are included as a removable, collectable poster in the magazine's centerfold.

Voice of the Media

"Colorful, vibrant and interesting, with submissions from a host of local and international contributors, it was as if Monocle magazine & Fashion Daily had produced a love child delivered by a cool German art director."

Kristopher Houser, New York Times


DERZEIT is an independent publisher made up of a Berlin-based collective of international journalists, designers, photographers, stylists and critics from a wide range of experience in publishing and the arts.

We are young and experimental, allowing us to employ new modes of communication in our projects.
