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: Recently it was rather quiet on the blog but I would definitely like to change this circumstance in the near future, promised. Today I would directly like to start with a look, that is especially affected by the colors blue and rose. During this year’s Fashion Week in Berlin I have worn this cozy and likewise stylish look consisting of a striped dress pants, a dark blue coat and silk top as well as my beloved ACNE Studios beanie. Of course my Gucci Princetown loafer are not allowed to be missed, whereas this outfit combination is finally rounded by a casual Chloé bag from Net-A-Porter.
Wie ihr vermutlich mitbekommen habt, war ich während der Fashion Week in Berlin unter anderem mit CATRICE Cosmetics unterwegs, die als offizieller Make-up Partner und Sponsor vom BERLINER MODE SALON fungierten. Ich habe dadurch die Chance erhalten auch Backstage hinter die Fassaden einer Fashion Show zu schauen, was immer sehr spannend und bei jeder Show anders ist. CATRICE war die komplette Woche für das Make-Up und die inspirierenden Beauty Looks der Models in Person von Loni Baur, einer deutschen Visagistin, zuständig. Ich habe die Shows von Malaika Raiss, Julia Seemann, Odeeh, Antonia Goy, Marina Hoermanseder sowie meine absolute Lieblingsshow von William Fan besucht.
Schon in Paris im letzten September war ich gemeinsam mit CATRICE bei der Kaviar Gauche Show und habe auch dieses Mal sehr viele positive Eindrücke mitgenommen. Laura und ich hatten am letzten Dienstag den Instagram Account von CATRICE übernommen, um euch Einblicke von den Shows, Backstage-Eindrücke und den jeweiligen Make-Up Look der Designer live zu zeigen.
Gerne möchte ich euch im Zuge einiger Bilder meine zwei favorisierten Make-Up Looks der vergangenen Woche vorstellen und die dazugehörige Schritt für Schritt Beschreibung. Let´s go…
ENG: As you have maybe recognized via Instagram or Snapchat, I was part of the GRAZIA Pop-Up breakfast during the Berlin Fashion Week. Before we were heading to the event location, I have received the winner from the GRAZIA competition in order to drive with them together to the Grosz restaurant with the Mitsubishi shuttle. From 9 am on lots of invited guests gathered there for starting into the day with an excellent breakfast. The actual highlight that day was outside at the entrance area in terms of the Mitsubishi Space Star, that can be equated with the perfect „city speedster“ based on its compact size and the great technical equipment.
After four hours of interesting and positive conversations as well as a saturated stomach, I headed back with the cool Mitsubishi shuttle to the Hotel de Rome, where I could sleep the whole Fashion Week. My outfit that day consisted of a conspicuous, stripped blouse with wide sleeves, a simple Closed jeans, an oversized coat from Joseph, gold colored GUCCI shoes as well as a velvet bag, also from GUCCI. A picture is worth a thousand words, so that enjoy the following impressions from the fantastic event.
ENG: Based on the fact, that I have been to Berlin for the Fashion Week during the last days, there was just too left time for writing a weekly focus but today I would like to catch up on it in a more extensive way. The Fashion Week was really brilliant but rarely such exhausting with regard to several obligations and appointments. Together with Laura we have made a cool film in my opinion, it was a lot of fun and hopefully you are similar thrilled like me.
I have visited lots of different shows like that ones from Holy Ghost, Julia Seeman, Marina Hoermanseder, Antonia Goy, Malaika Raiss or Odeeh, my personal favorite however was the show from William Fan. On Tuesday we have made a takeover of the CATRICE Instagram account, CATRICE was responsible for the lovely make-up during the shows in the Berliner Modesalon. On Wednesday in turn I was part of the GRAZIA Pop-Up breakfast in collaboration with Mitsubishi and the GRAZIA itself, more about this event will follow soon in terms of a separate blog post. For me a really succeeded week with lots of nice conversations, events and shows. :-)
Favorites of the week:
To Do: This week I have to handle mails and organizational things in the first place because last week there was just too left time for it. In addition to that I will take a flight today to Dusseldorf for a short Givenchy Beauty event and I am especially looking forward to meet Lisa from LisaRVD there. Otherwise I have to make the last preparations for the upcoming week because I will head to Tenerife for five days with ESCADA – you cannot imagine how much I am looking forward to the sun and warmer temperatures. :-)
ENG: Last week I have been in Berlin for visiting the Bunte New Faces Award with showroom.de and some other blogger girls. Do you actually know showroom.de? Here you can find different Independent Designer being gathered on one common marketplace. Therefore showroom.de ist the address for those ones, that are looking for fancy and exclusive must haves. I have found a lovely, salmon colored oversized coat from Marcel Ostertag, that has attracted a lot of attention that evening and fits perfectly for me. Before the official event we have met each other in the Showroom office for getting a gorgeous make up and individual hairstyles for the award ceremony. It was a really nice evening, we have laughed a lot and had much fun. Back in Hamburg I have worn again the coat and decided to shoot an everyday life „street style look“ with it. The coat fits excellent to my current dress style, in this case I have made my choice for the combination with an oversized sweater, a ripped jeans, the Gucci loafer as well as my new Louis Vuitton bag with its matching color.
Drop over to showroom.de. As kind of a goodie I have the 20€ voucher code „AYLIN20“ for you, that is valid until the 31st December 2016. Happy shopping!
ENG: Maybe you have already recognized via Snapchat or Instagram, that my boyfriend and me have been in Berlin Tuesday evening in order to attend the pre opening of the C-HR „Innovation & Creativity“ festival. You can visit the festival from now on until the 23rd October at the Kaufhaus Jandorf, you can be inspired by different artists, workshops and panel discussions. The issues on-the-spot are broad-based and range from fashion, lifestyle, art and design to food, so that every creative visitor should find something inspirational. We were very attracted by the the whole festival, when considering the location, atmosphere and even the invited guests, therefore I can absolutely recommend a trip to the festival.
We were invited by Toyota, the official sponsor, to the event for gazing the new, correspondent C-HR (Coupé High Rider) Hybrid, being available from the beginning of next year on. Design and equipment of the new Toyota C-HR, conceptualized as SUV-Coupé, are smart and stylish, in addition to that the new model is, based on its high-quality processing, perfectly suited for both sexes from my point of view. Convince yourselves when regarding the following pictures, for me as regular car driver the athletic design of the new Toyota is really succeeded.
For the event itself I have worn a casual outfit combination in terms of overknee boots as well as an oversized sweater.
What do you think about the new Toyota C-HR and the festival presentation?
ENG: This moment, that feels like coming home…
This way or in a similar one we have felt two weeks ago as we have checked in again in the Hotel Adlon Kempinksi during the Fashion Week Berlin. Maybe someone of you is thinking now, that I tend to exaggerate but this is definitely not the case because the hotel lobby has an incredible high comfort factor. As soon as I have passed the entrance area of the hotel, I have always been welcomed by staff with the words „Good day, Mrs. Koenig“ or „Goodbye, Mrs. Koenig“. The whole hotel staff is permanent kind and helpful, from my point of view this a mentionable and essential quality factor and makes traveling more enjoyable.
We were pretty happy about the fact, that we could stay there for the second time this year and that we have got an upgrade for the fabulous „Pariser Platz Suite“ located on the top level of the hotel with a beautiful view on the Brandenburg Gate. This suite has 80 square meter, almost the same size like our own flat, the suite is divided in a living and sleeping area with highlights like a kingsize bed, a walk-in wardrobe as well as an own fireplace.
Every morning we were looking forward to the breakfast being unique to my mind. There is a huge choice of different bread spreads, fresh fruits, hearty delicacies as well as diverse coffee variations being served to the hotel guests in a lovely buffet form. My personal morning routine was starting with one of the most delicious omelette I have ever tasted. :-)
Unfortunately there was less time in order to enjoy the hotel services completely, even a visit in the relaxing Spa area of the hotel was not temporally possible. Concerning this point you can also switch to my first experience post of the Hotel Adlon Kempinski, that is even connected with a video about my personal impressions.
At this point I would like to let the pictures speak for themselves… Continue Reading…
ENG: Finally I have got internet again and can now introduce a further look from the Berlin Fashion Week. This look is rather relaxed and colored in bright shades, in addition to that I have worn once again the Chloé Rainbow sandals with a pleasant heel height. The weather in Berlin was really nice, so that I have decided at the shooting day for a short jeans, a rose colored shirt as well as my beloved oversized summer coat. As matching color bag I have picked the Chloé Drew.
The lovely hairstyling team from Wella gave me this wet-look in the Blogger Bazaar HQ. For me this kind of hairstyling was definitely unaccustomed, nevertheless I have acquired a liking for this hairstyle after initial scepticism. Furthermore this outfit brought me good luck because with this one I have won a draw from Rebelle and now I am the proud owner of the Fendi Peek-a-Boo bag. Many thanks again to Rebelle for this really nice profit. :-)
What do you think about this look? And of course I am very interested in your opinion concerning my hairstyle?!
