Henningsen The knitwear on sale at this adorable little Hamburg shop is simple, elegant and beautifully cuddly.

If it weren’t for Birte Henningsen’s knitting machine and her friends’ and family’s enthusiasm for the pieces she had created, this sweet little store might not have come to be.

Today, the trained seamstress designs the shape and pattern of a new sweater lovingly and with much attention to detail before it then enters into production in a limited series. Using the finest Italian merino or cotton, she creates half-zip sweaters, hooded jackets, slipovers, long or short sleeved pullovers, polo shirts and cardigans for men and women, all of which have remarkable recognition value thanks to their unique patterns – such as honeycomb, zigzags or holes – slender shapes and calm colours. Suitable for everyday wear, classic, yet modern and easy to keep clean, the Henningsen designs have what it takes to become your all-time favourite items of clothing.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Sternschanze & Karoviertel

The two districts around Schanzenstraße and Schulterblatt are always in motion. Here, it is colourful and lively, and it has become much fancier in the last few years. Still, the district in the borough of Altona has preserved much of its rough, leftist-alternative nonconformism.
