ENG: It’s Friday and therefore time for my second trend report as a new weekly routine here on the blog. At the moment statement shirts are kind of an it-piece, on almost every runway worldwide you can find those shirts with smart slogans or logos. For me I’m totally addicted to this trend for some time past, so I’m really looking forward to the huge selection with high-end and low budget pieces as well. There are lots of stylish combining opportunities with jeans, skirts or shorts, almost everyone should find a suited piece based on their versatile application possibilities. Hereinafter you can find a selection of my current statement shirts favorites, have fun and happy shopping! :-)
ENG: Hello from Sylt, one of the most beautiful islands in Germany. We are here for the very first time and I am totally impressed by all the lovely beaches and landscapes. To be honest the weather isn’t the best, nevertheless we are having a great time and enjoying our stay to the fullest. My highlight last week was definitely our stay in Munich, we got invited by Net-A-Porter to the annual summer party at Villa Wagner. It was so good to see all the girls again – we danced aaaall night – WOW what a great night we had. While in Munich we could also use our time for some appointments with LOEWS PR, Cartier and Westwing – we have some exciting projects lined up – i cant wait to tell you all about it very soon.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: We are staying on Sylt until tomorrow and then we are finally heading to Majorca on Thursday for a very special occasion – location hunting for our big day next year. So have your fingers crossed that we get this one signed & sealed. After Spain I am moving on to Ibiza where I am going to spent some precious qualitytime with my girls – I cant wait to be back to one of my favorite spots ever.
New In: Yesterday I received so much feedback on my lipsticks, hence why I would like to give you some more information on that. Since a few weeks the US brand Revlon is exclusively available at the German drugstore Rossmann and I have to say that I can absolutely recommend it. Not only the price convinced me but also the product itself. Even Gwen Stefani represents Revlon – she guarantees the glam factor which convinced me even more and made it to my perfect match. Its not a secret that I love purple colored lipsticks and this one “wild orchid” (no. 457) is on top of my list.
In addition to that I am now the proud owner of a statement skirt from H&M Trend as well as some new MIU MIU beauties from Net-A-Porter in dark blue, a Preen by Thornton skirt and last but not least a Dolce & Gabbana statement shirt.
ENG: As I have already mentioned within my last Friday trend report, I am currently so in love with the kimono style and due to that I would like to go on with my latest acquisition. A special aspect of this kimono is the oversized cut, the glossy material and its lovely color assignment. I made my decision for the combination with a wide cut top, a simple jeans, my beloved Miu Miu slipper as well as a necklace layering for getting a stylish and suited to daily use outfit likewise. Fortunately I am a proud owner of a small Fendi bag at the moment and for me it ensures this casual and summery look.
What do you think about this combination? I am sending you many greetings from Sylt.
ENG: From now on you can find every Friday on www.aylinkoenig.com a small trend report with my current favorites from a specific assortment or collection. A weekly routine similar to the publication of the „weekly focus“ reports on Monday, that will hopefully get the same positive feedback in the future.
What do you think about this idea?
Today I would like to start with kimonos based on their flexible applications. There are lots of different colors and designs, one of my most successful Instagram pictures is that one with the conspicuous, green colored kimono from Zara. I wore it in the beginning of this year at the Fashion Week in Milan as well as a few weeks ago on Ibiza. In the meantime I have got a new one, that I will post later this day on Instagram because I am totally keen on the kimono’s cut and color. Stay tuned, it’s worth it. :-)
Here you can find my current recommendations. Which one is your favorite and are you equally obsessed like me?
DE: Ab sofort soll es auf www.aylinkoenig.com jeden Freitag einen kleinen Trend-Report geben, bei dem ich meine jeweils aktuellen Favoriten einer bestimmten Produktpalette oder Kollektion zusammentrage und vorstelle. Eine wöchentliche Routine also, die ähnlich zur Veröffentlichung von „weekly focus“ Beiträgen am Montag etabliert werden soll und hoffentlich genauso positiv von euch angenommen wird.
Wie gefällt euch die Idee?
Starten möchte ich heute mit Kimonos, die vielseitig und in allen Farben und Formen einsetzbar sind. Eines meiner erfolgreichsten Instagrambilder ist tatsächlich dasjenige mit dem auffälligen, grünen Kimono von Zara, den ich sowohl zu Anfang des Jahres während der Mailänder Fashion Week, als auch vor einigen Wochen auf Ibiza getragen habe. Aktuell trage ich bereits eine neue Errungenschaft, die ich euch gerne heute Abend auf Instagram vorstellen möchte, da ich von Schnitt und Farbe absolut begeistert bin. Bleibt also dran, es lohnt sich. :-)
Hier nun meine aktuellen Empfehlungen an Kimonos. Welcher ist euer Favorit und seid ihr genau besessen davon, wie ich?
ENG: After the introduction of my new Edited the Label achievements within the latest „weekly focus„, I would now like to show you the first corresponding look with the striped oversized sweater, that is absolutely recommendable based on the flared sleeves and its casual cut. As suited combination I have made my decision for a destroyed jeans shorts, the velvet bag from Prada with the appropriate Fendi strap as well as my new Miu Miu slides with fur. For sure your opinions differ in regards of this foot wear but I am just loving the comfortable footbed and the silver colored round and angular rivets. During the summer months I can well imagine to wear the slides with a midi dress or even on colder days in combination with a cropped jeans as well as a thick oversized sweater.
ENG: Back in Hamburg I still gladly look back on the nice time at the Berlin Fashion Week. Especially the get-together with friends and well-known faces is always fun, so we were very enthusiastic in regards of the group exhibition of the „Berliner Mode Salon“, a platform for the support of renowned as well as young German fashion designer. For me this event is kind of a must-have in my schedule based on the great atmosphere, the inspirational fashion and open-minded people.
We started the day with a lot of rain but in the afternoon we had the perfect weather conditions with sunshine and temperatures around 30 degrees. Enjoyment was the main topic this day, even Nespresso as first-time supporter of the „Berliner Mode Salon“ launched its new Limited Edition „Iced Coffee“ creations in two different flavors. Together with my beloved Lisa Hahnbueck and Dennis from „Dennmitch“ we were allowed to test these new types of coffee and it was really an enjoyment to the fullest.
On the one hand it is the INTENSO ON ICE, a rather strong coffee with grain and cocoa notes for an intensiv taste experience. Prepared as Latte Macchiato, this flavor is a very recommendable alternative for the real coffee pleasure. On the other hand there is the limited LEGGERO ON ICE, a mild and fruity coffee. Prepared as black ice coffee, this one is characterized by its refreshing citrus notes. Nespresso developed this coffee for the iced enjoyment on warm summer days, my flavorful preferred sort is the „Intense on Ice“, nevertheless both variations guarantee a delicious and succeeded refreshment.
Hereinafter you can see some impressions from this great event. Have fun! :-) Continue Reading…
ENG: We have been in Berlin during the last days because it was Fashion Week time. Based on the fact, that I am currently staying in Bremen at my parents‘ house on their sun terrace in order to escape from the terrible incidents in our beloved Hamburg, I would like to publish a small review of my looks from this year’s Berlin Fashion Week.
For sure Berlin can offer some great fashion shows and designer but for me it is even more importantly to join the „side events“, where you can find true interaction and conversations between brands, PR responsibilities and other blogger as the actual added value of such a Fashion Week. This time I have decided for a wide range of looks from a chic dress for the exclusive Mercedes Benz dinner at the Soho House to the casual hoodie-jeans combination at other events.
Which look is your favorite one? I would be very glad to hear your feedback and wish all of you a relaxed Sunday with hopefully a lot of sunshine.
ENG: Right now we are enjoying Berlin Fashionweek to the fullest but exactely one week ago we got the chance to join „The Summer Sports day“ together with Net-A-Porter at the amazing Soho Farmhouse close to London. The event was simply awesome. The rooms, the crew, the guests – everything was organized just brilliantly. In case you are looking into spending some precious quality time countryside we can highly recommend you the Soho Farmhouse – just a stone through from busy London. It’s a hidden gem totally calm, idyllic and so charming a perfect hide away and the ideal place to seek some relaxation. The Farmhouse offeres everything in order to recharge your batteries. A well equipped gym, amazing spa facilities you can find even a small lake with little boats and – it cant get any cheesier – they even offer horse carriages to top it of with.
We had a fun schedule with yoga classes as well as some hula sessions and of course we couldn’t resist to take plenty photos in order to give you the best impressions of this wonderful stay. We chose two outfits provided by Net-A-Porter and I’m already looking forward to receiving your feedback on what you think.
Whats your favorite combination??
Thank you Net-A-Porter for having us – we cant wait to return to the Soho Farmhouse hopefully VERY soon! Continue Reading…
ENG: At the moment I am sitting in the rainy Hamburg and I think wistfully back to our amazing time on Ibiza. We were pampered with a lot of sun, lovely people and an incredibly nice island, so that this was certainly not our last stay on the Balearic Island.
Today I would like to show you one of my most preferred looks from Ibiza, that suits perfectly to the island based on its „Bohemian character“. I am wearing a dreamful Zimmermann dress being an achievement from my collaboration with Net-A-Porter and the new vacation shop #JetAPorter, a dream in White with lots of details and a high-quality processing. Appropriately I have decided for my beloved Dolce & Gabbana bag being on sale by the way, and my all time favorites, the MIU MIU sandals. With regard to my preference for all kinds of accessories, I have converted a Fendi cloth to a ribbon and grabbed the oversized statement sunglasses by Chloé for getting that certain something within this outfit. All in all a very detailed look, that has a huge comfort factor.
On Instagram I have already shown you several #JetAPorter looks and even in July there will follow further ones from my partnership with Net-A-Porter, that I would like to share with you further on. Tomorrow we are going to head to London, where we will be hosted from NAP on Wednesday for an exciting event and of course I will take you with me these days via Instagram and Co.
What do you think about this outfit? Happy Sunday!
ENG: Sunny greetings from Ibiza, probably one of the cutest islands in Europe. We enjoy our time to the fullest so far and could already explore some nice spots and felt directly in love with the island’s old town, where we just had to take our first pictures. With regard to today’s city look, there is the main focus on the color „green“, in a way it is kind of a rediscovery for me but let me now introduce the corresponding pieces. In detail I have combined my beloved, green colored kimono with a casual jeans shorts from One Teaspoon and an one shoulder top from Edited the Label, that I also own in the variation beige/black striped. As matching color eye-catcher I have furthermore decided for my new GUCCI Marmont bag as well as the flip-flops from Givenchy and the black colored sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana.
Now we are heading to Formentera, I am already super excited about the island and will take you with me via Instagram Stories.
What do you think about this outfit – do you like the green focus?
