The Corner Berlin first opened its doors in February, 2006 on Berlin’s most beautiful square, Gendarmenmarkt. The store is a sophisticated platform for exceptional design of all kinds and has quickly established itself as a meeting place – and place of discovery – for lovers of individual style. The personal emporium offers an eclectic mix of designer fashion, accessories, jewellery, beauty, design, art, books and magazines.
However, the world of fashion is always on the move and Berlin even more so. Responding to this changing climate, founders Josef Voelk and Emmanuel de Bayser opened two new stores in October, 2012: The Corner Berlin Men and The Corner Berlin West.
Each conceived to address different requirements and provide alternative options, these two specialized stores have their own ranges, atmosphere and identity, while still retaining The Corner Berlin’s signature style.
The Corner Berlin puts design foremost with a carefully picked selection of the best pieces from the best designers.

Art and design have been actively incorporated into The Corner Berlin store experience right from the beginning. Contemporary art partners include major art galleries, auction houses, artists and collectors.

These have included Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, Christian Louboutin, Suzy Menkes, Carine Roitfeld, Phillip Lim, Claudia Schiffer, Lapo Elkann, Simon de Pury and Nina Yashar, Bernie & Petra Ecclestone, John Malcovic. The Corner Berlin has been chosen by Apple as one of the four worldwide concept stores for the exclusive introduction of the first Apple Watch.
Recently, The Corner Berlin revamped their website, to add global reach to their offerings. With an upcoming shoppable Instagram, the store is poised to expand their extensive reach through online selling and social media channels.
