trend report | CAPES

19. Oktober 2018

ENG: Colder days are just about to begin and which piece would be better suited than an oversized cape? It can be worn at any occasion and the current selection of capes is really amazing. My first cape this season is from Fendi with the typical F logo and I love it so much. The special aspect about this garment is the fact, that capes can even be worn as oversized scarfs and in general the combination opportunities are so diverse without a dusty or boring appearance.
Due to my increasing cape wish list with this ACNE Studios version or this rather simple model from COS, I have made a selection with my favorite models from the different online shops below. I don’t know, if you connect a cape with a modern it-piece or an outdated image but I’m sure, that capes belong to the must haves this season.

Have fun going through the selection and maybe there’s also a suited model for you! Continue Reading…

Golden October w/ mytheresa.com

11. Oktober 2018

ENGWe currently get to enjoy what is probably the most beautiful October and the excitement for the more cozy days of fall is growing and growing. So when mytheresa.com approached me a little while ago, I immediately had an exciting combination in mind.
I personally think that sunny days during the fall are the perfect time for long dresses with fashionable boots. That is why I chose this dreamy volant dress by the scandinavian label Ganni, which has an extravagant cut, beautiful details and complex embroidery and combines all these in one wonderful piece. I especially appreciate the wide selection of styles, that mytheresa.com offers around the year and the fact that new it-pieces are available in the online shop on a daily basis.
In this case I decided to combine black cowboy boots for creating a stylish break within the style. Oftentimes we chose rather plain colours for autumn looks such as black, brown or grey but especially with the current weather conditions I always feel like bright colours are really refreshing. On colder days I think that products made from velour leather are a great choice too, which is why my classic Saint Laurent bag will be used much more within the near future. Another highlight is my new pair of DIOR sunglasses, which I also found at mytheresa.com and I think they’re incredibly expressive because of their futuristic design. Especially in terms of accessories, mytheresa.com is very well equipped and even if your product of choice is not available, there is no online shop with a better customer experience due to the short delivery time and the beautiful packaging. But now over to you: How do you like the outfit combination and the dress?



DE: Der wohl schönste Goldene Oktober seit Jahren herrscht aktuell vor unseren Türen und die Vorfreude auf gemütliche Herbsttage steigt somit von Tag zu Tag. Als mytheresa.com kürzlich auf mich zukam, um das Thema Herbst aufzugreifen, schoss mir direkt eine spannende Kombination in den Kopf.
Sonnige Herbsttage eignen sich meiner Meinung nach perfekt für den Einsatz von langen Kleidern und angesagten Boots. Dementsprechend habe ich mich bei meinem Herbstlook auch für dieses traumhafte Volantkleid von dem skandinavischen Label Ganni entschieden, das einen extravaganten Schnitt, schöne Details und aufwendige Bestickungen miteinander vereint. Bei mytheresa.com schätze ich vor allem das ganzjährig vielseitige Sortiment und dass täglich neue it-pieces im Online-Sortiment verfügbar sind.
In diesem Fall habe ich mich für die Kombination mit schwarzen Cowboy Boots entschieden, um einen stylischen Stilbruch zu erzeugen. Häufig greifen wir fast schon automatisch zu eher tristen Herbstfarben, wie Schwarz, Braun oder Grau, doch gerade bei sonnigen Verhältnissen sind für mich hellere Farben immer sehr erfrischend. An kälteren Tagen sind meiner Meinung nach auch Produkte aus Veloursleder besonders geeignet, weshalb meine klassische Saint Laurent Tasche in nächster Zeit sicherlich wieder häufiger zum Einsatz kommen wird. Ein weiteres Highlight ist meine neue DIOR Sonnenbrille, die ich ebenfalls bei mytheresa.com gefunden habe und aufgrund ihres futuristischen Designs unfassbar ausdrucksstark finde. Gerade im Bereich Accessoires ist mytheresa.com immer besonders gut aufgestellt und auch wenn mal nicht das richtige Produkt für euch dabei ist, kenne ich keinen Online-Shop mit einem besseren Kundenservice. Nun zu euch: Wie gefällt euch meine Outfit-Kombination und das Kleid?

Hier findet ihr im Übrigen auch noch meine persönlichen Must-Haves für den Herbst. ♥

eBay Fashion x Aylin Koenig

ENGYou guys often ask me about specific pieces that I wear, or whole looks on Instagram, and sometimes there are pieces in the mix that are either from past collections or exclusive brand collaborations. That’s why I oftentimes have to disappoint you, since the products are either not available anymore or completely sold out. When eBay got in touch with me a while ago and asked to work on a project for the fall, I immediately had the idea to create a look with specific it-pieces, which are mostly from past collections.
Many of you probably have bought or even sold something on eBay. Especially in the fashion market, eBay is very well equipped, and you can find almost anything there, from popular it-pieces to limited editions you can find all the best labels. Did you know that 80% of all items sold on eBay are actually new and 90% can be bought without having to bargain for them? When i got active and searched through eBay, I found something pretty much immediately. Do you remember the H&M coat from last season that was sold out within minutes? You can find said coat on eBay, as well the Levi’s 501 CT, which you guys often ask about, too. Matching this look I went for the Chloé Susanna Boots, which are perfect for the transition of the seasons, and they have been part of almost any online shop for all seasons in the premium segment. I found the boots completely new on eBay, and I was overall able to link my entire look for you, even the Saint Laurent bag.
Something that most of probably didnt know: Chloé and Saint Laurent are amongst the most sold brands on eBay.
You can find some real gems at eBay Fashion and the chance of finding a true bargain is really high. I ordered a great Max Mara coat last week and am really excited to be stylish for the cold fall days in Hamburg. Have fun looking through the pages and products and leave a comment on how you like my eBay outfit. :-)



DE: Oftmals werde ich von euch auf meine Kleidungsstücke und Looks bei Instagram angesprochen, dabei ist gelegentlich natürlich auch Mode früherer Kollektionen oder aus exklusiven Markenkooperationen dabei. Dementsprechend muss ich euch dann häufig vertrösten, da die Produkte nicht mehr verfügbar bzw. schon vergriffen sind. Als mich eBay vor einiger Zeit kontaktierte und nach einer herbstlichen Zusammenarbeit fragte, kam mir direkt die Idee einen Look mit bestimmten it-pieces zu kreiieren, die überwiegend aus früheren Kollektionen stammen.
Viele von euch haben sicherlich schon mal etwas auf eBay gekauft oder selbst verkauft. Gerade im Modebereich ist eBay sehr breit aufgestellt, von heißbegehrten it-pieces bis hin zu limitierten Editionen könnt ihr auf eBay erstklassige Labels finden. Wusstet ihr, dass 80% der bei eBay verkauften Waren neu sind und knapp 90% der Artikel zum ‚Sofort-Kaufen‘ (kein Bieten erforderlich) angeboten werden? Als ich selbst aktiv geworden bin und eBay durchforstet habe, bin ich schnell fündig geworden. Könnt ihr euch noch an diesen H&M Mantel aus dem letzten Jahr erinnern, der binnen weniger Minuten ausverkauft war? Bei eBay habe ich den Mantel wiederfinden können, genauso wie die Levi´s 501 CT, die zumeist auch auf großes Interesse bei euch stößt. Passend dazu habe ich mich für die Chloé Susanna Boots entschieden, die gerade in der Übergangszeit perfekt geeignet sind und bislang jede Saison fester Bestandteil diverser Online-Shops aus dem Premium-Segment waren. Auf eBay habe ich die Boots im neuen Zustand kostengünstig finden können, allgemein konnte ich meinen kompletten Look bei eBay für euch verlinken, sogar bei der Saint Laurent Tasche bin ich fündig geworden. Vermutlich wissen es viele von euch gar nicht: Chloé und Saint Laurent gehören auf eBay zu den meistverkauften Marken.

Unter eBay Fashion könnt ihr einige tolle Schätze zu niedrigen Preisen finden und die Wahrscheinlichkeit ein Schnäppchen zu ergattern, ist definitiv gegeben. Auch ich habe mir in dieser Woche einen tollen Max Mara Mantel bestellt und freue mich schon sehr damit stylisch und sicher durch die kälteren Herbsttage in Hamburg zu kommen. Viel Spaß beim Stöbern und hinterlasst mir gerne einen Kommentar, wie euch mein eBay Outfit gefällt. :-)

Milan Fashion Week Street Style Looks

30. September 2018

ENG: Maybe some of you have recognized, that I have been in Milan last week for some Fashion Week action. With some distance I can definitely say, that my time in Milan definitely belongs to the most beautiful and eventful Fashion Weeks so far. The atmosphere during the different events but even between the girls was amazing. My personal highlight was the Fendi show due to the breathtaking new collection.
Based on the fact, that I get fittings from specific brands for shows and events during such a Fashion Week, I have to change my outfits several times and this circumstance results in up to five different looks per day. For this reason I have collected all my Milan Fashion Week looks for you today and I am very excited about your feedback. You can gladly leave feedback about your preferred look from the selection below.
From tomorrow on I will be part of the Paris Fashion Week ending but more on this will follow next week.

Wish all of you a nice Sunday! Continue Reading…

weekly focus 36 | 18

18. September 2018

ENGMy lovelies, please excuse how quiet it has been on the blog lately, but besides New York Fashion week and our ‘by_aylinkoenig’ project we just had so much to do every day that there was only little time for the blog. Of course that is supposed to change soon, which is why I am starting with an update on the past week and days.
We spent the last week n New York, to be part of NYFW for the third time. Besides the dreamy Zimmermann show, which will take me to my financial ruin again next year, the Mansur Gavirel show and Jonathan Simkhai presentations were among my absolute favorites. NY is an incredible intense and also inspiring time. We were able to sleep at the wonderful 11 Howard, which is located perfectly in Soho. Besides stylish boutiques, hip cafes and restaurants, Soho offers such a high quality of life and so much tolerance for the self-employed and wild thinkers. Thank you so much again too for all the kind words to my New York looks.

Favorites of the Week: 

To Do: I was able to get a skin analysis and treatment for my face yesterday with Babor, which was so interesting. My data was measured and compared to 100 women my age and it was so interesting to see how my skin did in the different categories.
Other than that we are currently enjoying the short time in Hamburg, while we are preparing for the next Fashion Week in Milan. We are on our way to Italy as of tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited. Please stay tuned through my Instagram stories, we have many exciting shows and presentations lined up within the next couple of days.

Favorite post of the week: NYFW Street Style looks

New InThe neon trend seems to have arrived completely in my closet, which is why I got the green and pink Prada bag from Luisaviaroma – I just couldn’t get around it.
Apart from that I have been looking for a Fendi poncho, which I now finally own. Additionally, the new collection from Edited arrived, meaning I can really dig in too!
In the end I went for this camel coat, the cashmere sweatshirt, this leather legging and a scarf, and especially when it comes to fall clothing, I am really looking forward to the seasons changing. Last but not least these adidas sneakers arrived, which makes me so happy especially with the other Fashion Weeks lined up.

NYFW Street Style looks

17. September 2018

ENG: During the past two weeks it was rather quiet here on the blog but from today on I would like to change this circumstance. Two days ago I came back from the first Fashion Week this season in New York and it was once again a very special time for me. There is no other city with such an energy, inspiration and happiness for me than New York. It was my third stay there and especially the fashion industry is so open-minded and vibrant, that it is just pure fun to create outfits and share this passion with so many other fashion addicted people. For this reason I have collected all my outfits from the New York Fashion Week and hope you like them. Tomorrow there will follow a new ‚weekly focus‘ with current and upcoming projects and one things is already clear: I have lots of exciting news for you. :-)

Happy Monday to all of you. You can gladly leave feedback below about your preferred outfit of the following selection! Continue Reading…

Trend Report: leo pattern love

22. August 2018

ENG: Today I would like to share a new trend report with you due to so much requests in the recent past about a special pattern within my outfits. It’s about the ‚leo trend‘ and even if this style is nothing new, I regularly get so much positive feedback on my leo clothes, that I decided to sum up my current favorites within this trend report.
My wardrobe consists of leo pieces in every imaginable form, no matter if it’s a skirt, dress, pants, bathing suit or hair ribbon, all of them are perfectly suited for stylish outfit combinations all year long from my point of view. I’m definitely a big fan of the leo pattern and I’m convinced, that the animal print will be very present during the upcoming autumn/winter time. Have fun with the following selection and you can gladly leave feedback about the leo trend below.

Happy shopping!


DE: Heute möchte ich mich gerne mal wieder mit einem Trendreport bei euch melden, da ich in letzter Zeit immer wieder auf ein bestimmtes Muster bei meinen Outfits angesprochen werde, sodass sich heute alles um den ‚Leo-Trend‘ dreht. Sicherlich ist das Leo-Muster in dem Sinne kein neuer Trend, da ich jedoch jedes Mal auf die Herkunft meiner Kleidungsstücke im Leo-Stil angesprochen werde, möchte ich euch heute gerne meine aktuellen Lieblinge dieser Stilrichtung vorstellen.
Ich besitze das Leo-Muster in gefühlt jeder Variante in meinem Kleiderschrank, ob Rock, Kleid, Hose, Badeanzug oder Haarband  – es passt zu beinahe jedem Kleidungsstück und lässt sich unabhängig von der Jahreszeit wahnsinnig gut kombinieren. Ich bin jedenfalls ein großer Fan und glaube fest daran, dass am ‚animal print‘ auch im kommenden Herbst/Winter kein Weg vorbeiführt. Ich wünsche euch viel Spaß beim Stöbern und hinterlasst mir gerne eure Meinung zu dem Thema im unteren Bereich.

Frohes Shoppen!

Lucca | blue maxi dress & Dior mini Saddle bag

10. August 2018

ENG: You guys asked for more outfit posts on the blog, so here we go! We are back home from Italy, but I wanted to show you this look, which we show in the beautiful village named Lucca, anyway. Some of you have asked specifically for this dress on Instagram, which is from H&M. With this I combine my mini DIOR Saddle Bag. The Saddle Bag has been newly interpreted after 18 years of originally coming out by the head designer Maria Grazia Chiuri, and I like the min version very much. For a relaxed day exploring Italy, i took out my white Adidas slippers, which are also a must-have this summer.

How do you like this look? I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend.

What´s in my bag for Italy

5. August 2018

ENG: As you have maybe recognized, I’m staying in Italy since the beginning of the week for undertaking a road trip and our previous impressions are great so far. We’ve started the trip at Lake Garda, via Sirmione, Verona and Florence we made it to Forte Dei Marmi, a resort being very famous for Italians themselves. From tomorrow on we will go on to Cinque Terre and Portofino as the last stations of our Italy journey. As soon as we will be back in Germany, I write a separate and detailed blog post about our road trip with the single destinations, hotels and our personal highlights.
Via Instagram Stories I’m regularly getting such lovely messages about the origin of my clothes and if I can share more information on this topic. Due to this I would now like to give you some insights in my current suitcase and the most relevant pieces for these hot days here in Italy. Everything in line with the actual road trip and our impressions from the single stations, will be relevant as soon as we are back in Germany.

In this sense: See you soon und happy Sunday!

DE: Wie ihr vielleicht mitbekommen habt, befinde ich mich aktuell auf einem Roadtrip in Italien und die bisherigen Eindrücke sind einfach fantastisch. Zunächst waren wir am Gardasee und sind dann über Sirmione, Verona und Florenz in Forte Dei Mami gelandet, ein Urlaubsort in der Toskana, der vor allem bei Italienern sehr beliebt ist. Ab morgen gehts dann weiter Richtung Rapallo, um von hier Cinque Terre und Portofino zu besichtigen. Sobald wir wieder in Deutschland sind, werde ich nochmal einen separaten Beitrag über unseren Roadtrip mit den einzelnen Stationen, Hotels und unseren Highlights der Reise veröffentlichen.
Über Instagram Stories bekomme ich regelmäßig so liebe Nachrichten von euch, woher ich meine Kleidungsstücke habe und ob ich nicht mehr Infos dazu mit euch teilen kann. Aus diesem Grund möchte ich euch heute einen Einblick in meinen Koffer gewähren, welche Kleidungsstücke hier in Italien nicht fehlen durften. Alles was die Reiseroute und unsere Eindrücke von den einzelnen Stationen selbst betrifft, werde ich euch nach der Reise näher vorstellen.

In diesem Sinne: Habt alle einen schönen Sonntag!

Aylin ♥

ENGAfter what feels like forever, I finally want to publish an outfit post again, and at the same time get back into my old routine.  When mytheresa.com asked if we were up for a joint project, of course I said yes straight away. The selection at mytheresa.com is enormously big, and barely any online shop in the premium- and designer industry has a choice so large, while maintaining this level of great service. Within Germany, a package will usually get to you within 1-2 days and returning it is possible within 30 days without any problems.
Let’s get to my mediterranean look now, which we shot in the oldtown of Saló by the Lake Garda. You know my passion for oversized dresses, which is why I was so happy to find this dreamy dress in a royal blue by ‘Three Graces London’. I combined it with my deeply loved Balenciaga slingback pumps in tweet, which I had on my wishlist for weeks already. They are just the perfect shoes, since they can’t only be worn in summer, but also during the fall or even winter with little socks. The classic bamboo bag is the best finish to the Mediterranean look I believe, for the ambient for the Lake Garda. Besides all the dreamy, white dresses, that are currently hanging in my closet, I am really happy that I went with some colour this time- what do you think? Of course I also went all the way with my accessories and wearing my beloved Balenciaga ear clip, a classic Ray Ban pair of sunglasses, differently coloured dior bracelets and much more. To me the look is only then ready, when all the details are perfect. :-)

Now it’s your turn – how do you like the look? I am really always so happy to get your feedback.
