S.O.S.

THE OFFER needs your help! Since MANIKÓ is part of it too, it's much more important to let you know what we try to realize:

At a time where it’s simply unacceptable not to be part of the online fashion universe, the Berlin-based
label network The Offer made the conscious decision to present itself on the classic platform of fashion
with its THE OFFER MAGAZINE ISSUE #1 In line with the label collective’s fashion and accessories, they not only focus on the touch, feel and experience of their fashion – they also want to take a stand parallel to the exciting and continuously growing world of fashion blogs.

The magazine is not only going to communicate The Offer’s aesthetic philosophy and creative standards,
thus also telling stories about life and work in Berlin, Europe’s most creative city. It also functions as an
almost practical basic commodity and tool to present and make transparent the design network’s way of
working – as a whole, but also by featuring the labels and people who are part of it at the moment.

SUPPORT THE OFFER MAGAZINE ISSUE #1

In order for THE OFFER MAGAZINE Issue #1 to be able to go into print with a number of 5.000 copies and to cover for layout and shooting expenses, we need your support, both financially and spiritually.
You can support us by telling your friends and colleagues about our project, or by helping us by clicking
on one of the buttons on our website, thereby donating your chosen amount of money to the project.
As a thank-you, our supporters will be listed in the magazine. Also, they are going to receive an invite
to THE OFFER MAGAZINE ISSUE #1 release party. In the weeks following the event, the magazine can be purchased in galleries and shops throughout Berlin.

Erswappt euch Manikó auf den Skyy Swap Market




Am 27. August findet im Stadtbad Oderberger Straße in Berlin Mitte zum zweiten Mal der “Skyy Swap Market” statt. Bei dieser Veranstaltung kann man liebgewonnene und hochwertige Kleidungstücke und Accessoires, aber auch Bücher, Platten und andere Designobjekte tauschen. Der Erlös kommt der Berliner Aidshilfe e.V. zu Gute. Bislang konnte man u.a. Gegenstände von Prominenten und anderen Leuten mit den eigenen tauschen. In diesem Jahr kann man dies aber auch mit Kollektionsteilen von Berliner Labels tun. Deshalb haben sich einige Labels von dem Design Netzwerk “The Offer” dazu entschlossen, sich zu beteiligen. Jeder hat nun die Gelegenheit, ungetragene Schätze aus seinem Kleiderschrank mit anderen zu tauschen und bald kann man so vielleicht ein tolles neues Stück von Tata Christiane, Manikó, 25Pieces, Gabriel&Schwan, Comtesse de La Haye, ICA Watermelon, Helena Koj oder von Bardonitz sein Eigen nennen.Dazu gibt es Skyy-Cocktails und musikalische Untermalung.

Die Veranstalter erklären den Ablauf:
“Eingereicht werden können werden hochwertige und neuwertige Kleider, Accessoires, Designobjekte, Platten und Bücher. Die abgegebenen Tauschgegenstände werden in den SWAP-Spots nach Art und Zustand bewertet und erhalten eine bestimmte Punktzahl. Die Gesamtpunktzahl für die Tauschgegenstände wird auf einem Gutschein gemeinsam mit dem Namen des Swappers eingetragen. Der Gutschein kann am Veranstaltungsabend gegen sogenannte SWAP-Jetons eingetauscht werden, die als Währung für den Abend dienen. Mit den Jetons kann man sich Tauschgegenstände im Gegenwert der erhaltenen Jetons aussuchen und auch Drinks bezahlen. Alle, die im Vorfeld keine Gegenstände abgegeben haben, können Jetons auch am Abend selbst kaufen. Jetons, die nicht verbraucht werden, können gespendet werden. Der Erlös der Veranstaltung kommt der Berliner Aidshilfe e.V. zugute. Einmal getauschte Ware kann nicht zurückgetauscht oder in Geld ausbezahlt werden.”

Und hier die Swap-Spots, bei denen vorher die Ware angenommen werden:
SKYY SWAP Spot “Das Neue Schwarz”
Mulackstrass 32
10119 Berlin Mitte
Mo, Do – Sa 12 – 20h

SKYY SWAP Spot “La Lip”

BLACK BOX THEATRE

On the occasion of this July’s Berlin Fashion Week and within the context of an extraordinary performance/exhibition concept, the Berlin-based label collective The Offer presented the collections of its ten designers On July 7th at Black Box Theater. Every designer presented one model, clothed all in white.
The effect thus achieved between the different kinds of white fabrics and materials and the all-black space they are located in, was accentuated by an individual and original light concept as well as a song especially composed for the event.

So, for all those who didn't attend this magical event - here's the video:
