Berlin Fashion Week continues and the latest issue of The Daily Berlin came out today with Heidi Klum on the cover and a surprising interview. Plus! We chat with buzzy designers Rebekka Ruetz and Kilian Kerner, and reveal the hautest looks we’ve seen so far in Berlin. Staying local today? No worries! You can view the entire issue online.
Flame-haired Austrian designer Rebekka RuÃ©tz, 28, got her start with prints master Peter Pilotto during a stint in London before debuting her eponymous line three years ago. In the six seasons since, sheâ€™s gone from black-on-black chic to Hunger Games glam. Next up? A capsule line of coed tees and a foray into menswear.

Furry fans, rejoice! Innovative e-comm and editorial site Vaunte has partnered with Friends of Finn. When we last chatted with founders Christian Leone and Leah Park, the two had left Gilt to launch Vaunte. Since November, they’ve explored the most coveted closets of top fashion insiders and tastemakers but what’s next? According to Park, they are going to launch the premium service in the next two months. A few months since the site’s debut, the duo is making moves on the charity front: partnering with Amanda Hearst’s charity, Friends of Finn, which works to wipe out puppy mills.
