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.

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: Last weekhas started with a short trip to Frankfurt in order to visit the Ambiente exhibition together with Westwing for getting new interior inspirations. On Thursday I was heading to London for the first time in my life and I am still in the English capital. The weather is just great so far and the whole city provides so much positive energy – love it! The Fashion Week in London is definitely quite different, it is much more anonymous and there are only a few hints within the town concerning the annual fashion highlight. Besides some meetings I have visited, among other things, the Julien MacDonald Show and have been part of the Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Show with Wella Hair, where I could also get some exciting backstage impressions.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: Today I will fly back to Hamburg before from Thursday on, I will stay in Milan for this year’s Fashion Week with Lena. I am already looking forward to my stay there because Milan is one of those cities with the highest fashion impact from my point of view and I always get so much inspiration, when strolling through the city and visiting the exciting shows. You can follow me there and share my impressions via Instagram Stories and on Snapchat (@Aylin_Koenig).
New In: I had to make a new order at ASOS within the White selection in terms of a stripped dress, a dark blue oversized top as well as an off shoulder blouse. In the course of my collaboration with Net-A-Porter I have selected this cute Fendi bag and fortunately I am also owning the appropriate rivet strap. Last but not least I have ordered my favored sweater from Edited for the third time, now I am owning this garment in grey, blue and finally rose – LOVE!
ENG: My second Look from London consists of the colors blue, gold and pink, it definitely belongs to my favorites. I am wearing a destroyed jeans, an asymmetrical blouse, the gold colored Gucci Marmont shoes as well as the beautiful Prada Cahier bag.
For the time in London I am working together with CATRICE Cosmetics in order to create a Fashion Week make up look. Even two years ago I have worn almost every day flashy lipsticks and could not leave the flat without them. After that I have preferred those ones with nude as the predominated color, this year I would like to switch on a regular base between the colors. At CATRICE I have found a lovely, very flashy metallic lipstick in pink with a good feeling on the lips and a high durability. The normal highlighter and highlighter pen for the corner of the eye also belong to my absolute favorites and be in my use for some time past. At the bottom I am linking all my CATRICE products being used for this look.
What do you think about the outfit and make up within this look?
ENG: Hello from London! Since yesterday we are staying in the Englisch capital in order to get a whiff of the Fashion Week air. The first day was already brilliant, actually it is my first stay in this metropolis and only that the weather is playing along, no, even the cityscape and kindness of the people are keen on me from the very first beginning.
Yesterday I have worn my new, chunky oversized cardigan, a classical ACDC shirt, a tight jeans, the GUCCI loafer variation with Donald Duck as motive as well as my new Prada Cahier bag, that was directly delivered from Net-A-Porter to our hotel room. In any case, one thing is clear: LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! I just simply love everything on the bag: pattern, colors, material and size. A casual street style look with a high comfort factor.
