Paris Fashion Week Street Style | Aylin Koenig

15. März 2018

ENG: I have been back in Hamburg for a couple of days now and look back at the time of Paris Fashion Week with rather mixed feelings. Of course Paris is an amazing city with unbelievably many sights and shopping areas that let the heart of any woman skip a beat, but the city has also not been spared of the cold, which created some frosty moments during our shoots!
Nevertheless I’d like to give you an overview of the looks that I wore during Paris Fashion Week. To me fashion is a passion that I consume every day and that I like to share with my surroundings, whether in the snow or during times of heat. Especially lately I received so many private messages with lovely comments on Instagram, that really touched me and make me incredibly happy. I am always so excited to see that my passion for fashion and lifestyle motivates and even inspires others. But let’s get to the looks of Paris Fashion Week, which I have put together for you in the following. I hope you have fun looking through them and please leave your feedback on your favorite look in a comment! Continue Reading…

2. März 2018

ENG: Bonjour from Paris, the last Fashion Week destination this season with various shows and events. I could already gain great insights and will share all my experiences and trends for the next autumn/winter season after my arrival in Germany here on the blog.
Nevertheless I would now like to introduce my outfits from Milan Fashion Week. Due to the bad weather it was impossible to shoot spring looks, most of the time I was forced to use a layering option but see yourself below. I really hope, that I can show more vernally outfits pretty soon, it is definitely time for warmer temperatures. :-)

Which look do you like most? Have fun browsing! Continue Reading…

#TheDifferenceSheMakes: Frauenpower in jeder Tasse mit Nespresso

18. Februar 2018


ENG This past Friday I attended a brunch event by Nespresso in line of the Berlinale, which was really interesting to me as an independent blogger. It was about the new #TheDifferenceSheMakes campaign, which is about female empowerment. The term covers measures and strategies to promote independence and autonomy of women, which is part of Nespresso’s sustainability program and aimed at the female coffee farmers in the particular growing countries. Since I, as an independent blogger, am in the situation all the time, where I have to self-responsibly make decisions that may have an impact on my immediate social surroundings, I was very keen on the idea of the campaign and the event.
In case you missed my Instagram Stories from last Friday, I would like to give you a personal insight on the brunch event in the following.

In order to make the topic known in Germany, I think Nespresso came up with something really special: The new Pink Latte is supposed to send a message for women and their impact on society in general. Not only in coffee farming, but also in areas like film and TV women take an important role and can make an important difference, true to the motto #TheDifferenceSheMakes. Bright pink and full of power, this is the statement Nespresso is making on the occasion of the Berlinale with the Pink Latte. In case you are wondering what’s behind the drink now yourselves, I would like to introduce you to the recipe here:

  • 10 ml Wild honey
  • 40 ml Espresso LE Robusta Uganda or Arpeggio
  • 25 ml Beetroot juice
  • 50 ml Milk

Firstly you give the honey into a large, 250ml glass, then brew the Espresso (40 ml) and add this to the glass and stir until mixed with the honey. Afterwards the milk and beetroot juice have to be stirred until foaming and can be added to the glass. To finish it off you can add the nutmeg to the froth and/or decorate the whole thing with a beetroot chip. It is a very unusual taste at first, but really delicious, and it’s an absolute eyecatcher too! 

To make a statement for strong and autonomous women with my outfit, I wore a knitted jacket with colorful ribbon decorations by Preen Line. With a simple Jeans by Lovers & Friends I wore the tough Balenciaga Boots, which are a statement in themselves already. The event last friday took place at the Nespresso Rooftop Café at the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin and it was definitely an impressive location for the topic of female empowerment.

From Tuesday the 20th February on you can all try the new Pink Latte in all Nespresso boutiques and take a stand for the empowerment of women.
In the follwing I have put together a couple of pictures from the event and the drink. Have a beautiful and relaxed Sunday!

DE: Am vergangenen Freitag war ich im Rahmen der Berlinale bei einem Brunch Event von Nespresso, das mich als selbstständige Bloggerin besonders interessiert hat. Es ging hierbei um die neue #TheDifferenceSheMakes Kampagne, bei der das Thema ‚female empowerment‘ im Mittelpunkt steht. Unter dem Begriff werden Maßnahmen und Strategien zur Förderung der Unabhängigkeit und Selbstbestimmung von Frauen verstanden, was sich als Teil des Nachhaltigkeitsprogramms von Nespresso an die Kaffeefarmerinnen in den jeweiligen Anbauländern richtet. Da ich mich als Bloggerin selbst regelmäßig in der Situation befinde, eigenverantwortlich Entscheidungen treffen zu müssen, die auch auf mein Umfeld Einfluss haben können, war ich von der Idee der Kampagne und des Events sofort angetan. Falls ihr meine Instagram Stories vom vergangenen Freitag verpasst haben solltet, möchte ich euch im Folgenden gerne noch einmal einen persönlichen Einblick vom Brunch Event gewähren.

Um das Thema auch in Deutschland bekannt zu machen, will Nespresso mit dem Pink Latte ein Zeichen für Frauen und ihren Einfluss auf die Gesellschaft im Allgemeinen setzen. Nicht nur im Kaffeeanbau, auch in Bereichen, wie Film und Fernsehen nehmen Frauen eine zentrale Rolle rein und können dabei den entscheidenden Unterschied ausmachen, getreu dem Kampagnenmotto #TheDifferenceSheMakes. Strahlend pink und voller Power, so will Nespresso anlässlich der Berlinale mit dem Pink Latte ein Statement setzen. Falls ihr nun selbst neugierig sein solltet, was sich hinter dem Getränk verbirgt, möchte ich euch gerne kurz das Rezept vorstellen:

  • 10 ml Waldhonig
  • 40 ml Espresso LE Robusta Uganda oder Arpeggio
  • 25 ml Rote Bete Saft
  • 50 ml Milch

Gebt zunächst 10ml Waldhonig in ein 250 ml Glas, bereitet dann einen Espresso (40 ml) im Glas zu und verrührt diesen mit dem Waldhonig. Anschließend müsst ihr die Milch und den Rote Bete Saft schäumen und den Milchschaum in das Glas geben. Zum Abschluss kann noch das Muskat auf den Milchschaum gerieben und/oder das Ganze mit einem Rote Bete Chip dekoriert werden. Ein zunächst ungewöhnlicher aber super leckerer Geschmack, optisch ist der Pink Latte auch definitiv ein Hingucker.

Um mit meinem Outfit selbst ein Zeichen für starke und selbstbestimmte Frauen zu setzen, habe ich für das Event eine Strickjacke mit bunten Schleifenverzierungen von Preen Line getragen. Neben einer schlichten Jeans von Lovers & Friends, habe ich mich zudem noch für die derben Balenciaga Boots entschieden, die schon für sich ein Statement darstellen.
Das Event am letzten Freitag fand im Nespresso Rooftop Café am Potsdamer Platz in Berlin statt und war für das Thema Frauen-Power definitiv eine beeindruckende Location.

Ab Dienstag, d. 20.02.18 könnt ihr in allen Nespresso Boutiquen den neuen Pink Latte probieren und damit selbst ein Zeichen zur Stärkung von Frauen setzen. Im Folgenden habe ich euch ein paar Bilder von dem Event und Getränk zusammengestellt. Habt alle einen schönen und entspannten Sonntag!

Alberta Ferretti Shirt & Fendi Triplette bag

16. Februar 2018

ENG: From Mallorca to Hamburg and then straight to Berlin and Cologne, that’s what yesterday and today looked like. But I am of course not trying to complain, because we were able to define many details for the wedding during our short trip, about which I will of course keep you posted. As I have already mentioned in the last ‚weekly focus‘, we are in Berlin for a couple of hours today to attend an event by Nespresso and Vogue in line with the Berlinale and we are back on the road afterwards to our previous hometown – for a fitting of potential wedding dresses, and of course I won’t take my darling fiancé here! With the sunny but freezing weather that is present at the moment I didn’t want to keep today’s outfit from you, which is why I took the chance of the first rays of sunlight to take some new photos.
Absolutely rebellious as you know me I am wearing a “Wednesday”-T-Shirt by Alberta Ferretti on a Friday, which definitely is the color highlight in this outfit. I picked up the the feminine color scheme also with the bag, which is by Fendi; the amazing thing about the Fendi Triplette is the color combination, which can be combined wonderfully to various outfits. My beloved Prada Mules take on the blush rose of the bag again and make the outfit perfect. The coat is from the designer collection by ‚HM x Richard Quinn‘ and I think it’s a very special piece especially because of its sleeves. The highwaisted jeans by Closed gives the up until now rather chic outfit an athletic and casual touch and the sunshine makes you want to wear sunglasses too: Here I decided to go for one of my favorite pair by Chloé.

I am always incredibly excited about your feedback and would love to know if you also try to wear two or more pieces of the same intense color in one outfit?

Copenhagen Fashion Week

4. Februar 2018

ENG: It was only a brief treat but also a very nice one, my very first stay in Copenhagen this week. From Turkey I took a direct flight to the Danish capital being very impressive concerning the architecture and fashion consciousness. I came across open-minded, courteous and stylish people, so I’m sure my next stay in Copenhagen will follow very soon.
My focus this week was obviously the shows and events in line with the Fashion Week, so below you can find an overview of my looks, that were shot by the great street style photographer Christian (‚The Styleograph‚). In this sense:

What is your favorite look?

DE: Es war ein kurzes aber auch sehr schönes Vergnügen diese Woche in Kopenhagen für die Fashion Week gewesen zu sein. Direkt aus der Türkei ging es am Mittwochmorgen in die dänische Hauptstadt, die nicht nur architektonisch, sondern auch modisch einiges zu bieten hat. Die Leute sind offen, zuvorkommend und sehr stylisch unterwegs, sodass ich definitiv noch einmal zurückkommen werde, um die Stadt richtig zu erkunden.
Da ich vor allem für Shows und Events im Rahmen der Fashion Week vor Ort war, möchte ich euch im Folgenden einige Looks zeigen, die von dem großartigen Christian (‚The Styleograph‚) fotografiert wurden. Viel Spaß beim Stöbern und hinterlasst mir gerne euer Feedback, in diesem Sinne:

Welcher Look gefällt euch am besten?

white & grey | Valentino Rockstud Spike bag

28. Januar 2018

ENGEven though I have already posted two Instagram-photos with this look, you guys were interested in even more details, which is why I decided to write a little blogpost about it, too! I was asked many times where I find the dresses to layer my looks and, to be honest – the answer isn’t even that difficult. :-) What’s important for these looks is that you use a dress with a soft and flowing material. This dress, for example, I found at H&M Trends about a year ago and I wear it with a grey knitted jumper, as well as my beloved Alexander McQueen Platform Sneakers. I think the look is very feminine, especially in combination with the new Valentino Ruckstud Spike bag in white, while the sneaker and my ACNE beanie along with the jumper create a cool change in style.

MBFW Berlin January 2018 | all street style looks

21. Januar 2018

ENGAs you have probably seen via my Instagram Account, we were at Berlin Fashion Week from Monday through Friday. We had a number of things to do this time as well, including shows, events, projects and client meetings. Since I usually change my outfits multiple times a day during Fashion Week, I would like to give you an overview of my looks. Even though we were pretty unlucky with the weather, we were still able to create some inspiring results, and our mood wasn’t ruined after all :-)
I showed you some of my personal favorites in an exclusive blogpost on Friday already, but please let me know which look you like best, too. I would love to hear your thoughts and get some feedback on these outfits :-) Continue Reading…

#MBFW | Aquazzura heels & Chanel denim bag

19. Januar 2018

ENGHappy Friday! Especially in such cold and nasty weather, the longing for sunshine and warmer days is a huge thing for me, which is why I took the chance right in the first rays of sunshine to shoot one of my favorite looks for the upcoming season! These beautiful Aquazzura stiletto sandals are an absolute eye catcher and can easily be combined to different outfits and for various occasions. I took the chance and combined them with the Denim Chanel bag, since I feel like these two nuances of blue are perfect together. With a flowing dress and a soft H&M Trend sweater that moved in with me last week, the layering look I was going for is completed. The sunglasses by Chloé are a perfect add-on, since the soft rose color matches the dress and creates a harmonic color scale, that fits perfectly to the – hopefully soon to be here – spring season. And just like that another great look is ready, which can be worn to different occasions due to the number of different highlights that have been integrated into the look. But before we go into the next season – hopefully soon – I would like to know: Do you wear different layers to make the look more exciting too?

weekly focus 02 | 18

9. Januar 2018

ENG: A very relaxing week is behind us where we were able to take out some time to heal our colds and aching throats, which means that this week I can fully focus on new projects and posts for you. Apart from the every day business we are intensely working on the newsletter for the end of the month and we also made some progress in regards to our wedding during the last few days. If you want to find out more about our Newsletter you can sign up on the homepage of my blog and take the chance to partake in an exclusive Designer-Sale.

Favorites of the week

To Do: We will be spending most of this week in Hamburg, before going to Berlin next week. The Fashion Week is coming up now and we still have a few things to prepare. I am especially excited for fashion week, because our team member Sarah is accompanying us, which means that we can produce even more exciting content for you.
But even before that we have another exciting date coming up, which is the visit of the Musical “The Lion King”. We watched it for the first time about ten years ago and as a great Disney-and Musical-Fan I am really excited for the show.
Apart from that I have spent my day with the amazing Kathleen, who put some life and structure back into my hair; you can find out more about that in today’s Instagram-Story. I get asked about who does my hair all the time, which is why I can only recommend Kathleen’s Instagram-Account.

Favorite post of the weekMax Mara oversized coat & Gucci belt

New In: I found this wonderful ‘oversized’ coat by Max Mara at Vite EnVogue, as well as an amazing pair Aquazzura Heels and a Dorothee Schumacher fur jacket. I have integrated the Max Mara Coat into a look last Sunday and wrote a blog post about it too, and the heels and fur jacket will be put to use during the Fashion Week in Berlin next week.

Max Mara oversized coat & Gucci belt

7. Januar 2018

ENG: Happy sunny Sunday! The sun has been shining the entire day here in Hamburg, which honestly just felt so good – so we took the chance to take some photos straight away. With this outfit I would like to introduce you to my absolute favorite vintage find – this oversized Max Mara coat, which i spiced up with a Gucci belt. In combination with a black knitted sweater, a pair of Jeans, Gucci sneaker and the denim Chanel bag, this look isn’t only perfect for every day and every occasion, but also playful and stylish at the same time. The color combination of black, white and blue works well every time too, which is why I like to wear it to all kinds of events and occasions. Now I’m curious what you think:

Do you like the combination of ‘oversized’ coat and statement belt?
