ENG: Some of you have maybe recognized via Instagram Stories, that I visited the new Aigner store in the inner city of Hamburg last weekend. For me Aigner Munich is a true traditional house in Germany, this is why I was especially pleased that Hamburg has now an own store closed to the Inner Alster in the „Poststraße 2-4“. As I’ve made some Instagram Stories last weekend, the interest concerning bags and straps at Aigner was huge.
On a regular base I’m getting requests for nice, fancy and top quality bag straps. This question can now finally be answered because Aigner has really some beautiful and colorful variations in its current assortment and furthermore the price-performance ratio is fair and adequate. Based on the fact that some straps are already sold out online, you can call your favorite store and instruct a delivery with your preferred strap and/or bag to your home address, no matter where you live – a great service from my point of view. During my store visit, I decided for the dark green „Lexi“ bag with a red stats strap, even at this week’s Milan Fashion Week I wore the bag for the Aigner Runway show. By the way – the new summer collection 2018 is really gorgeous – you can be curious. :-)
Do you also own an Aigner bag? I’m really keen on the current assortment and wish you a lot of fun with rummaging!
ENG: It’s‘ Sunday morning and we’re already in London for visiting shows and events in regards to the first European Fashion Week. Nevertheless I would now like to introduce my favorite New York City looks of recent days. For me New York is one of the most inspiring cities worldwide, on my previous journeys I’ve only rarely experienced such a charm, character and tolerance like in NYC. Based on the warm weather, you will find rather summery outfits below but I can already promise, that autumn looks wont’tbe long in coming – promised! :-)
Which look is your favorite one? Enjoy your Sunday!
DE: Es ist Sonntagmorgen und wir befinden uns bereits in London, um Shows und Events im Rahmen der 1. Europäischen Fashion Week zu besuchen. Dennoch möchte ich euch heute gerne meine favorisierten Looks aus New York zeigen. Für mich ist New York eine der inspirierendsten Städte der Welt, so viel Charm, Charakter und Toleranz habe ich auf meinen bisherigen Reisen kaum woanders erlebt. Da es in NYC wieder einmal sehr warm war, sind einige sehr sommerliche Looks dabei, die ersten Herbst-Outfits werden aber bestimmt bald folgen – versprochen! :-)
Welcher Look gefällt euch persönlich am besten? Genießt euren Sonntag!
ENG: As we’ve been in London last week, I’ve directly used the chance in order to shoot this look for you. This year I’ve gained a preference for the English capital, it’s the perfect place to express yourself with self-confident and fancy outfits. Most of the time I decide for rather casual pieces within my outfit combinations for maintaining a certain suitability for daily use.
However this time I took a different path and made my choice for a Glam Rock dress being sensual and feminine at once. It’s about a short dress from the brand Just Cavalli, that is especially characterized by its black and gold color combination as expression for the joy of life. Glam Rock combines classical elements of glamour but with a certain self-confidence. I’ve decided for the combination with rough boots and dark sunglasses as suited accessories of this expressive dress. The whole shooting was a lot of fun, even the dress itself implicates a certain manner of vitality.
What do you think about this look? You can find more information about my dressing preferences and the upcoming autumn trends within my interview for the online edition of the Glamour magazine.
ENG: Today I’d like to be more personal and share some thoughts about happiness, more respectively beautiful moments. Frequently, special moments in life are connected with a big thing or something exceptional, while at the same time the everyday triumphs get too little attention due to stress and rush. As I’ve heard from the new #DOSeeTheWonderful autumn/winter campaign by PANDORA and its idea for the first time, I was immediately impressed and didn’t hesitate one second to support this approach. It’s about the everyday accomplishments, that make our life so special and unique and that have to be shown and celebrated. The study, which interviewed over 7,000 women across eight countries and three continents, recognizes that six times as many women are inspired by natural photographs of other women succeeding in everyday life than they are of static, posed “selfies”. The results also show that almost half the women in the world already capture photographs of everyday moments on their phone, demonstrating that many women already see the significance of the small things in life. Whether it be the common coffee with a friend or the physical activity after work, everyone should sometimes stop and hold back for identifying a special moment and enjoying it to the fullest.
When I was in London this week to visit the new autumn/winter collection at the PANDORA House and thought about my personal moments of happiness, there were two things that crossed my mind. The common time with family and friends, as I’ve already mentioned in several previous blog posts, is really inspirational for me. From drinking coffee with a friend to visiting a restaurant with the family, I love this quality time and its wonderful moments. Even our French Bulldog is a very special part in my life, especially after a longer journey or event, I’m loving to spend time with her.
Based on the fact, that this campaign is also dealing with your personal and special moments, PANDORA has established an Instagram competition. In order to participate you have to photograph one of your most beautiful moments and post it on Instagram. You can find more precise information and the conditions of participation via www.DoSeeTheWonderful.de. You have the chance to win jewelry in the amount of 300€.
Below you can find some pictures of the new jewelry collection from the PANDORA House, even my friend Sandra from Black Palms was part of the event and we took directly the opportunity for a common shooting in London.
Now it’s up to you: What are your favorite moments? You can gladly leave your feedback and share your everyday triumphs.
ENG: At the moment dotted patterns and midi dresses are „en vogue“, almost every well-known brand and designer count on these trends within their current collections, even Edited has such a garment in terms of the new „Ava“ dress. Directly after receiving I had to try and shoot it based on the fancy cut and great color pattern. For me this dress is also suitable for the upcoming autumn in combination with a jeans jacket as break in style or with rough boots at colder temperatures.
With regard to today’s look I decided to wear pointed-toe mules and the small Chloé Nile bag due to the perfectly tuned color match. Complemented with some jewelry and a sunglasses you have a modern and suitable for daily use outfit.
What do you think about this look? Enjoy your Sunday!
ENG: No other item of clothing makes me so happy like an oversized coat. Even if I’m really a summer’s child and enjoy every sunbeam and moment at the ocean to the fullest, my preferred fashion season is definitely autumn. Already at the height of summer I’m sometimes thinking of my oversized coats and wear them for years some clothing sizes too large. In the meantime oversized coats belong to the trend pieces this season and I don’t need a clothing size 44 any more because there are several models being cut in an oversized style, so sometimes I can even take a 38 for an oversized appearance.
For me there are lots of exciting patterns, colors and materials, therefore I’m not only owning bags and shoes as it-pieces but also several of those coats in my wardrobe and even this season I’ve already got new one. To be honest I always look for a new favorite coat! :-)
Here you can find my current favorites! Have fun and maybe you can find your preferred model! Continue Reading…
ENG: The summer is slowly coming to its end, days are getting shorter and almost everywhere in Hamburg you can find spiders. Based on the fact, that it will probably only be warm on single days until the end of summer, the right conclusion is to get a knitted sweater and boots out of the closet. For the first time in a long while we’ve decided to take the pictures in our old premises and to be honest it was a strange feeling and kind of a journey into the past, where it all began. Independent from that it was also a lot of fun and hopefully you like the results as well.
Concerning the actual look I’ve decided for my new Edited the Label knitted sweater and a filigree skirt in combination with the Balenciaga boots and the matching color Saint Laurent bag from my perspective. The sweater itself is fluffy and comfortable likewise, you can find this model and two further ones in different colors within the current collection. The quicker the better, autumn is probably coming faster as we actually have it in mind.
What do you think about this look? Do you like it?
ENG: Probably you’ve already recognized, that I’m very keen on floral prints at the moment. No matter if it’s a dress, skirt or top this summer floral prints are en vogue, furthermore they’re able to refresh the transition period until autumn. Dolce & Gabbana was the first label counted on prints last season, so this year almost every brand and retailer followed this trend, worthwhile emphasizing is the amazing label Zimmermann with the most beautiful floral print creations right now from my point of view. In addition to that you can find gorgeous pieces at the big player like Zara, H&M and Mango.
With a conscious break in style in terms of a hoodie, sneaker or statement shirt, a floral pattern can be more than a girlish appearance. During this year’s Fashion Week in Copenhagen I’ve spotted some great looks with floral prints and I’m sure, that this was not the end.
ENG: At the moment I’m totally obsessed by floral midi skirts, especially the combination with my beloved hoodies are more popular than ever for me. Concerning this model I’m not only convinced by the red-green coloring but also the cut is casual and sexy at once. Whereas the black colored hoodie is rather unspectacular and simple, there is a perfect match between the green elements of the Gucci sneaker and my new Prada Cahier velvet bag with the skirt design. For me it’s a very stylish outfit, that is definitely suited to daily use. Especially the everyday suitability is a pretty important part of my outfit combinations and this one suits all possible requirements. Instead of a hoodie you can even combine such a skirt with statement shirt or knitted sweater from my point of view, especially knitted pieces represent a sensible alternative for colder temperatures.
Now I’m very excited concerning your feedback. In this sense: Do you like this look?
ENG: Back from Ibiza I would now like to introduce a new look from Hamburg. The outfit is especially characterized by classical and casual elements as the perfect combination and requirement for almost every occasion. The outfit’s centre is definitely my new oversized dress in black with its deep neckline and the wide sleeves. As suited pieces I have also decided for a destroyed jeans, my Gucci belt as well as the Dior J’adior slingback heels for getting a certain glam within this outfit. The colorful highlight belongs to the Dolce & Gabbana bag for at least symbolizing a hint of summer in Northern Germany at the moment. For some time past I have looked for a yellow colored sunglasses and could recently find this gorgeous Ray-Ban Ja-Jo model with a high style factor from my point of view.
What do you think about this look? Should you especially be interested in the dress or sunglasses, turn on my new Instagram Story, it’s worth it. ;-)
