trend report | Slingbacks

3. September 2019


Hi my loves! Today’s post is about one of my favorite topics – shoes! Even though I am, as you might know, a big fan of sneakers, this model is an absolute trend this spring and summer: Slingbacks! With a touch of vintage this model, which is originally from the 1950’s adds a noble touch to any outfit. What I find especially exciting about this shoe is that it can be worn to so many different outfits. The classy way with a culotte or elegant summer pants, or more casual with ripped jeans – this shoe is the perfect choice. If you like it even more classy though, the shoe can be worn perfectly with a skirt or a dress – and if you are even only closely as much of a fan of breaks in style as I am, you can combine it with a more casual top, like a T-Shirt.
The low or medium high heel makes it really comfortable too. With the many large fashion houses that have been known for their versions of the shoe for a long time, especially Dior has been known for their version. Their edition with the ‘J’adior’-embroidery brought the shoe back to life. Though I have put together a collection of my favorites, and there are some less expensive versions amongst those too. I hope you find some you like!

How do you like the classic shoe? And in which combination would you want to wear the slingback?

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?
