trend report: mom jeans

21. August 2019

In the midst of planning the international Fashion Weeks I wanted to talk about a current trend. As you have probably seen on my Instagram channel, I have rediscovered my love for denim again. I have to say though: Especially special cuts, such as the model by Zara I have worn in Copenhagen, have totally won me over. Generally, mom jeans, which are wider cut jeans, are totally trendy at the moment, especially in combination with rather elegant tops an absolute must this season. Many brands have already joined the denim-movement and presented their interpretation of the classic jeans anew. 

I personally find so many of the outfit variations with mom jeans incredibly stylish and am already looking forward to seeing your outfit ideas with jeans like that! How do you like the wider-denim-trend?

trend report | scandinavian interior

11. August 2019

scandinavian interior home

Since I love showing you guys our apartment, I thought it was time to go into more detail of the interior-topic. As you probably know, I am a huge fan of straight lines and simplistic designs. That is exactly why I like the Scandinavian look so much, which can be found in many online shops and interior stores. The trend includes any room and products, from book shelves, sofas, decorative products, dining tables to pillows and frames.
Whether it’s see through plexiglass with wood, large vases, harmonic colour schemes or designs closely related to trends from the 50’s – I have put together some of my current interior design favorites in the Scandi-look for you.

As always I love hearing from you and how you like the trend: Do you own something in this stil? Or do you dislike the clear lines and find them not that cozy?

trend report | trench coat

2. August 2019


Good morning from sunny Hamburg! After we had a few very busy days I want to take some time again today to publish something on the blog. Even though we are currently in an absolute heatwave, it does get a little chilly late at night. Especially here up North we have a few winds blowing, so taking a jacket when you’re out late is always a good idea. 

As you know I am a huge fan of blazers, as I have already written about here. Another jacket design that will be really big in the upcoming season though is the Trenchcoat in a new interpretation. The light coat, which is mostly made from popeline or gabardine is the absolute icon of all coats – even Audrey Hepburn wore a classic version of it back in the day. Something I really love about trenchcoats is that they are timeless and so versatile; whether elegantly with a dress and high heels or in a more casual combination with jeans, an oversized pullover and ballerinas. Even with the shorter tights or leggings and sneakers the trenchcoat works really well. It really can be worn completely uniquely. 

How do you like the classic of all the coats?

trend report | Sandals

30. July 2019

My dears, since we are so busy with my label by Aylin Koenig at the moment I wanted to take the chance to talk about one of my current favorite topics. As you know I am a huge fan of shoes, and especially during the summer there are so many different models. Even though today won’t be about anything completely new or innovative but about a known topic, I wanted to put together an overview of my favorites: The sandale. Almost all designers and brands developed their own version of the summer classic, and there are so many different forms and versions that make choosing really difficult. I personally really like delicate sandals with a low heel, because that immediately creates a feminine look, but I definitely own a number of different styles too. 

Luxury brands such as Prada oftentimes go for the slipper-form with thin straps, while Gucci designed a number of interpretations of the rubber slides. Something they both have in common – as well as all the other models – is the fact that you can wear them to absolutely any outfit, whether it’s with a dress, skirt, pants – they go perfectly with all kinds of outfits. 

Which model do you prefer when it’s this hot outside?

weekly focus 10 | 19

15. July 2019

My loves, it’s been a while since I have last published a new ‘weekly focus’. The last weeks were so busy with trips, events and tasks related to my own label by Aylin Koenig. Yet, I try to take you on all the trips via my Instagram account. Even just in the first half of July we went to Berlin to attend Berlin Fashion Week, and afterwards Tobi and I spent a long weekend in Palma to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Immediately after I went to Paris with Chanel Beauty, and I am incredibly thankful for all the impressions I was able to collect, but am still happy to be back home and spend time with family and friends, and of course our french bulldog Summer.

Lieblinge der Woche

To Do: The first days of this week will be spent in Hamburg. We are currently working tirelessly on new products for the by Aylin Koenig label, and I already showed you the oversized linen blazer in beige on my Instagram channel. In addition, we will add a few beautiful summer pieces and the production of sold-out items is progressing really well also. 
I will then spend a few days in Ibiza with a client, and am already excited to be back on this special island. Of course I will take you guys on this trip with me via Instagram!

Lieblingsbeitrag der Woche: trend report | designer bags under 500€

New In: A few new pieces moved in with me within the last few days, amongst other things this amazing oversized coat by Rokh, this dreamy Ulla Johnson bag in a new style and a pair of white pants by The Frankie Shop. The lovely Aimee by Song of Style then also sent me three pieces from her collection: An orange cropped blouse with the matching skirt, as well as a cream coloured blouse
Apart from that I am in love with Bottega Veneta again and am able to call this light blue pouch my own in collaboration with Mytheresa. Another lucky necklace by Bottega Veneta was also added to the collection. :-) 

Have a wonderful and successful week!

trend report | ring stacking

12. July 2019

ring stacking

My loves, after it was comparably quiet on the blog lately I am back today with a new post! First Tobi and I went to Berlin for the Fashion Week in the beginning of July and had an amazing time, before we went to Mallorca for a long weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.
In Berlin we saw Pandora’s new collection, which is wonderful. We have been working with them for quite some time now so it was great to be back with them. I am absolutely in love with the creativity of the new collection again. 

As you probably know I love combining different styles, and it is no different with jewelry. Of course I always wear my engagement and wedding ring 24/7, but I also like to combine a number of other rings with it, too.
‘Ring stacking’ has been a trend for some time now, but I still find it really interesting and exciting to wear your own personal style even on your hands. My go-to colour is gold for jewelry, but apart from that there are absolutely no limits to your creativity – whether it is about the finger you wear them on, which style or even which position of the finger or how many rings you decide to wear overall. My motto for jewelry, whether its earrings, bracelets or rings is ‘more is more’. ;-)
A trend in the jewelry segment that will be very popular this season will be small highlights and accents, whether in the form of colourful stones or pearls. In addition there will be different sizes of the goodies: a very popular style at Fashion Week were rings in the style of signet rings in combination with fine, golden finger rings. 

I have put together a variety of my current favorites for you, with which you can ‘dress your hands’ completely uniquely and freely. I hope you like the designs – and as always I am so excited for your feedback!

trend report | designer bags under 500

6. July 2019

ENG: As I always get so many requests about my bags on Instagram I wanted to put together something slightly different for you today. This trend report is not necessarily about a specific trend, but rather a very popular product group: handbags. Designer bags are probably the holy grail of the fashion world because it’s the first luxury item for many. And that’s what it was like for me, too: my first purchase from a famous designer was a handbag, that I still like to use today. Stil,l you shouldn’t forget that there are many handbags out there that have all the requirements of a designer handbag and cost a lot less, too: quality, design, timelessness – all of that can be found for under 500€. And that is exactly why I spent a lot of time in a number of online shops today to find the best handbags that have all those aspects for you guys. I hope that there is one or two models in there for all of you and for any taste and that I found what you like. :-)

As always I look forward to your feedback and if you like my selection. Have a great week!

trend report | summer dresses

24. June 2019

As the weather is an absolute dream I wanted to talk about one of my favourite topics: summer dresses! The many different styles, that will be available this summer make for perfect combinations for any style – whether it is elegant, cool, playful or feminine – the different designs make the perfect foundation for a beautiful summer outfit. As you know I only show skin very selectively: When I wear a short dress, it is always with a high neckline, and when I wear a plunging neckline it is at least a midi or even a maxi dress. Some of my favourites are the long dresses, which I then like to wear with a small statement bag or a pair of stylish sunglasses – and the perfect summer outfit is ready! But the short versions can be super stylish, too – whether with sneakers or high heels – with the many different designs that are currently available by the designers, anything is possible.

Which length do you like best for a dress? And are you as excited for summer as I am? :-)

trend report | eye catcher sneaker

20. June 2019

You guys, I hope that where ever you are the sun is shining as much as it is here. It feels so good that the sun is finally here to stay, and I couldn’t be any happier about it. The sun on my skin is just such a special feeling that I miss on the cold days. But now on to today’s topic: Eyecatcher sneakers!

As you know I am a huge fan of comfortable shoes – whether it’s slippers, sandals in the summer, boots in the winter or just sneakers in any season, comfortable shoes are a must-have, especially now for the summer days. After many models, such as the popular Balenciagas that are always sold out, were such a big trend in the last season, the coming weeks will be full of unique designs. Anything that makes an outfit more interesting or fashionable is allowed: this trend is incredibly unique and individually applicable from my point of view. Whether it is high tops, neon coloured laces, logo prints on jacquard fabric or large buckles: the new interpretations fulfill any wishes. I personally like to wear those athletic shoes with skirts or flowy dressed to create a break in the style. This immediately makes an outfit more stylish and creates a small unexpected wow-effect! :-)

What do you think about sneakers in summer? Do you like the striking models or do you prefer the simple, classic ones?

trend report | ear cuffs

23. May 2019


ENG: You guys, I hope your Monday is as sunny as mine. As I am spending some more time in the office after the last two trips, I wanted to write about one of my favourite kinds of jewellery: ear cuffs. As you know I am a big fan of dainty, golden pieces of jewellery and like to combine multiple different rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets, to create unique looks.

What I like best about the small rings, that are available in all different variations, is that they can be worn without a piercing and therefore be placed anywhere on the ear – and can be changed or combined with other ear cuffs too.  Many of the different models that I find mostly stylish are either decorated with small stones or pearls and therefore look even more unique. But those of you who like it a little more simple, there are designs to match that wish too. With the many different styles that these small pieces of jewellery can come in, the perfect one is out there for anyone. And it makes them so versatile, too: whether you wear them with elegant, small earrings, large hoops or even with big, eye catcher earrings – they make every outfit perfect.

I have put together my favourites for you below and I hope that you will find some you like too, and I especially hope that you like this summer jewellery trend as much as I do!

DE: Ihr Lieben, ich hoffe euer Morgen ist ebenso sonnig, wie meiner! Da ich nach den beiden Trips in den letzten Tagen wieder etwas mehr Zeit im Büro verbringe, wollte ich heute über einen meiner absoluten Lieblings-Schmuck-Trends schreiben: Ear Cuffs.

Wie ihr wisst, bin ich ein absoluter Fan von zierlichem, goldenen Schmuck und kombiniere gerne mehrere Ringe, Ketten, Ohrringe oder Armreifen miteinander, um individuelle Looks zu kreieren.

Was ich an den kleinen Ringen, die in jeglichen Variationen verfügbar sind, besonders gut finde ist: sie können ohne Piercing und so an jeder Stelle des Ohrs getragen, nach Belieben gewechselt oder auch mit weiteren Ringen kombiniert werden.

Viele der Modelle, die ich besonders stylisch finde, sind entweder mit Perlen oder kleinen Steinen verziert, da sie so noch individueller wirken. Wer es allerdings schlichter mag, für den gibt es auch gänzlich einfache Designs. Die vielen Stilrichtungen, die diese kleinen Schmuckstücke verkörpern können, machen sie so vielseitig: Ob mit eleganten Steckern, großen Kreolen oder sogar langen, auffälligen Ohrringen, sie sind so vielseitig kombinierbar, dass sie jedes Outfit abrunden.

Ich habe euch unten einige meiner Favoriten zusammengestellt und hoffe, dass ihr ebenfalls fündig werdet und vor allem, dass euch der sommerliche Schmuck-Trend ebenso gut gefällt wie mir!

Aylin ♥
