ENG: Until now I associated Los Angeles as cool spot with a modern and easy lifestyle but not necessarily as nice and idyllic city. However as we drove to Santa Monica beach for a daily trip last Tuesday, it had happened to me. I am totally in love with the bright beach sections, cute cafés, huge waves, the lifestyle feeling and open-minded people, so I directly had to shoot my first look at one of the diverse lifeguard tower.
The outfit’s centre is certainly the striped one shoulder top from Edited the Label, I am so addicted to the top, that I even own a second one of it in black in the meantime. The one shoulder piece is stylish and comfortable likewise, it can be used in different ways of combinations and is suited for a day on the beach or in the city at the same time. I am combining the top with a simple cropped jeans, my beloved Gucci Princetown loafer in metallic pink as well as my Chanel bag, that I already spotted several times between West Hollywood and Santa Monica. ;-) We have some plans in mind for the upcoming days and will further share our honest impressions via Instagram with you, in addition to that we have already prepared some video footage, that will be introduced very soon.
What do you think about this look? Sunny greetings from California!
ENG: Back in Germany I could unpack my new delivery from Kate Spade NY with great joy based on this amazing oversized coat and the pink colored Isobel bag. You know my passion for coats in general, this time I am especially addicted to the coat’s camel pattern. The trademark of the Kate Spade NY label is the love for flashy colors, graphical prints and playful designs. The luxurious bags and accessories of the brand express vitality and combine style and fun in a particular way, for me a succeeded and very recommendable mix auf luxury and pleasure.
I am combining these pieces with a white colored blouse, a ripped jeans as well as my beloved Chanel Slingback pumps as color-coordinated match with the coat. The conspicuous bag screams for Spring and happiness and has also the perfect size for daily use – love it! :-)
What do you think about this look? Do you know the brand Kate Spade NY?
ENG: Long sleeves and oversized coats belong definitely to the current fashion trends, for sure these products are not necessarily part of the daily routine but it looks always very stylish and casual. I have already fallen in love with this trend and like conspicuous sleeves in any form this season, no matter if bell or trumpet shape, even as oversized product they have a high style factor from my point of view.
Recently I have got a request from style.com for discovering their popular pieces within the womenswear exclusive collection. In this context I have decided for this beautiful, grey colored hoodie as well as the classical camel coat, both products belong the brand Vetements, that is famed for its exaggerated proportions and the elevated streetwear. I have combined these products with a two tones jeans, my beloved Gucci Princetown loafer in metallic pink as well as the Chanel bag. At style.com you can find a variety of fancy and special pieces, the homepage exhibits a huge style and fashion character, so that it is getting more and more my preferred inspiration and shopping source.
ENG: Today I would like to introduce my first weekly focus from our new flat and it feels so great. Yesterday we have spontaneously started with the first packing cases and could already establish a rather homely atmosphere after our wooden floorboards were cultivated once again. During the next days everything will be finished and I am already looking forward to it. As soon as everything is done, I will let you know via Instagram Stories! :-)
Maybe you have recognized, that I was invited to Frankfurt over the weekend by s.Oliver in order to celebrate the launch of the brand’s new Fusion Collection. The event and fashion show were absolutely worth seeing and attractively displayed, the whole atmosphere in the festival hall was exuberant. Soon there will follow a more detailed post about it here on the blog. In addition to that I have visited a lovely friend for getting a hair refreshment and I can highly recommend her for issues concerning balayage, hair densification and cut. She is a specialist in this matters here in Hamburg, so just let me know, should you be interested in her contact data.

To Do: Hard to believe but this week we will finally head to the Maldives and my pleasant anticipation is huge by now. Until then, we will try to furnish our flat as far as possible for enjoying the Maldives paradise to the full. As you know it from previous trips, I will take you with me via my different Social Media channels.
ENG: Tomorrow I will head to Berlin for the upcoming five days in order to attend the Fashion Week and multiple events on-the-spot. I am already looking forward to all the lovely and well-known faces, my cooperation partner and of course the events and shows itself. The year 2017 has started with a great meeting with Net-A-Porter and I am so glad, that we will work more closely together during the next weeks and months.
For Berlin I have got a very cool delivery from the shop and as you know me, I would like to introduce the products via Instagram and the blog little by little. In this case I am wearing a dreamful dark blue oversized coat from Joseph, that is combined with a beige colored mohair sweater and a straight cut two-tones jeans. So what should I say?! Repeat offender!!!! I am loving the red colored Gucci Marmont shoes so much, that I just had to own them in gold as well for the next season. As suited accessories I have finally decided for the brown hued Gucci sunglasses as well as the small Louis Vuitton bag.
I wish all of you a cozy Sunday…
ENG: Based on the fact, that the winter is still predominant in Hamburg, I have created a sheltered and very comfortable look today. In many cases black is the foundation for my outfit combinations, that will then be complemented by single color accents. This time I have decided for a black colored oversized feel-good sweater in combination with a patent leather pants, a black coat as well as Converse shoes in black as well. The color highlights come from a chunky knit beanie and my beloved Chanel bag.
What do you think about this outfit? Now I have to further plan my outfits for the Berlin Fashion Week, being hosted from next Monday on. There will be definitely some highlights – stay tuned. :-)
ENG: Last week I have dealt with organizational themes in the first instance, in addition to that I had some cool meetings, whose content will be introduced soon. :-) A further mentionable aspect was my second date at the very talented and pleasant Kathleen in Hamburg, so that I finally own the perfect hair color and I have got a representable hair consolidation. I am so, so happy about the result, awesome how much hair can influence the personal well-being. :-)

To Do: Even during the following days almost everything is focused on the Berlin Fashion Week, that will take place next week. I will be there from Monday to Thursday and I am already looking forward to take you with me via my different Social Media channels, especially with regard to one special collaboration my pleasant anticipation is huge. All in all I hope, that I can report from exciting insights and inspiring impressions in the context of this year’s Berlin Fashion Week.
New In: What should I say?! I am definitely a repeat offender. When there is a lovely piece, I just have to buy the second, similar piece. This time happened in terms of the Louis Vuitton Felicie bag with its so cute bird pattern. In addition to that I have got the dark blue „Chanel Adiletten“ and I am already looking forward to the warmer days this year.
ENG: Merry Christmas my beloved ones! I hope you all had a contemplative and peaceful Christmas Eve?! The year 2016 slowly turns to an end, with regard to the blog respectively the development of my Social Media activities, I am so grateful for the last weeks and months.
Even on Christmas I would like to introduce in a quiet moment a new, casual look, that contributes two of my current fashion preferences: knitwear and off shoulder. I have quickly converted the cardigan to an off shoulder variation and also decided for the combination with a leather patent trousers and the Gucci velvet Princetown loafer. A suited bag for this look is the small Louis Vuitton bag from my point of view. Even the loafer as well as the bag have that certain indefinable something, therefore both pieces are the perfect amendment for diverse outfit combinations and occasions.
What do you think – do you like this look? Enjoy the Christmas time with your beloved ones.
ENG: A nice week in Hamburg is over, we had a lot of visitors and spent the pre-christmas time with our friends extensively. Since being self-employed and working from home, I enjoy these common moments very much. In addition to that we are working currently on new projects for 2017 and I am already looking forward to the realization of exciting campaigns.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: On Wednesday I am going to have a SPA session and lunch date with Lena at the Aspria Uhlenhorst, unfortunately I have neglected my sports activities in in recent times but I would definitely like to change this fact very soon. Thursday in turn I will head to Berlin for participating in the „Place to be Award“, where an exciting task is waiting for me, as you know me from former events, I will take you with me that day via Snapchat (Aylin_Koenig) and Insta stories. :-)
New In: I am loving my Gucci Marmont velvet bag, since last week there is a version in light pink available at the online shop. Of course I had to order this color variation but I am still unsure, if I should keep the bag because it is pretty similar to the Chanel case. In addition to that I have ordered the production of my dream Gucci loafer from the DIY collection but I still have to wait 10 weeks until the completion with my own initials. I can hardly wait until introducing the loafer’s color, a real girlish dream! ;-)
ENG: Last week started with a great meeting, I hope to tell you more about it very soon, so please cross your fingers for me, that everything will be fine in this context. In Hamburg the Alsterhaus has opened the new luxury hall with a big welcome party, unfortunately I could not attend the event but you should definitely come over, it is worth it. Instead I have spent this evening in Berlin with Showroom.de in order to visit the Bunte New Faces Award. Apropos, you should drop in to Showroom.de because you can get 20% discount of your purchase with the code „AYLIN20“. At the weekend we have celebrated a great family birthday in our home town with delicious food and drinks.
