So today i’m showing you my second look which i was wearing on Saturday when we went to the Old Spitalfield Market in order to see the Faustine Steinmetz presentation. Of course i opted for something comfortable since we were running around all day long. So like i mentioned in yesterday’s post that we were able to discover London for a couple of hours we also had the chance to shoot some of our looks and since London offers a bunch of different/amazing/photogenic backdrops i was super happy when we found this amazing red brick house.

Last week, i had the absolute pleasure of being invited by Toni & Guy Products to visit London Fashion Week and learn more about their latest products but also had the chance to check out the hair trends and meet their new global hair ambassador. It was an exciting experience since we (talking about a few other bloggers from Europe who were also invited) got all access to the backstage areas. Unfortunately i missed the first tour since there was no flight earlier that day. So upon arrival on Friday in the afternoon i checked into the Hoxton Hotel in Holborn – just minutes from Covent Garden and Soho. The minute i stepped into the hallway i immediately fell in love with the interior which is an eclectic mix of vintage and modern elements and remarkably photogenic as you can see on the pictures. After checking out the hotel room for a couple of minutes i rushed to Soho in order to see the Ashley Williams runway show which was supported by Toni & Guy Hair products for the 5th time.

Let me introduce you to the most comfortable pants i own. Of course it’s not everyone’s cup of the but the fact that they feel like nothing on my skin and allows me to move like a Hip-Hop Dancer (which i was more than a decade ago) makes me want to wear them everyday. I was wearing this look when i was on my way to London last week where i wanted to feel supercozy, cool but chic at the same time - and since you’re running around like crazy when travelling i opted for this look which holds up the potential of being my next travel look in October. So excited to tell you more about it soon!

Let the layering game begin– that’s excactly what comes to my mind when i think of my favorite month of the year – September. It’s not only a month where we sometimes look back over the year and recap what all happened since January, it’s also a month which holds the potential of really getting it right. So when i was asked by Peek and Cloppenburg, who’s launching their new Online-Shop by the end of the month, to create a look with my favorite pieces for fall i knew straight away what i would choose. So i headed to their website and immediatly found everything what i was looking for since they offering a bunch of different brands.
So with this post, i am sharing a mixture of different labels and how i personally transition from summer to fall. So one of my favorite items which i’m constantly wearing around the year are definitely culottes . I probably mentioned it way too often but for me this is the ultimate piece of clothing which manages to be cool but super chic at the same time. Secondly, sneakers, which became part of my signature look only year ago when i was a little bit over my loafers which are also back in the game this fall.
The final touch was this incredible coat that seems to be the perfect additon to this simple look. It reallly is such an amamzing piece since the length is way more flattering and more sophisticated than any other length. So all in all i’m super excited for fall and don’t even mind saying goodbye to summer – it’s time for a new chapter!

September marks not only the beginning of autumn weather but it’s also the month when fall collections are debuted and will inspire you to try out new looks. Personally i’m a big fan of the fall season since i always get a little bit bored when i’m not able to cover myself up and start wearing layers like nobody business - and that's why i've teamed up with Atrio which is a shopping center in Carinthia/Villach in order to show you my favorite trends when it comes to transitioning your wardrobe into fall - check out the german here article here. Of course there are a bunch a ways to do so but in this case i only opted for a pretty simple concept since it’s still too hot outside to wear more than a light base and light jacket. To top things off i went for this buckle boots in order to add a contrast to the feminine body con dress which i’m totally obsessed with. Pefect for any occasions and of course comfortable at the same time! So what about you, are you feeling down about the end of summer or excited to kick off a new season!

So over the last week i posted a few glimpes and personal impressions of the wonderful moments i had last weekend in Berlin. As i already mentioned a few weeks ago the etailer Zalando managed to reshape the Bread & Butter from being a trade fair for professionals into a public event – and let me tell you the nailed it right away! Along with 29 bloggers from all over Europe i was invited to the infamous Zalando Summer House in the City in Berlin in order to check out the new B&B concept.
We all stayed at the Amano Hotel which is located in Mitte where you have the chance to stroll around and discover a bunch of cool shops, restaurants (Good Morning Vietnam - thanks Jenni for this recommendation) but also locations to shoot like this one. So right after our arrival we were welcomed at the Rose Garden which is located just around the corner of the hotel. Like last time (talking about Lollapalooza) i had no expectations at all but the fact that we were spoiled with super nice stuff (clothes, bags, a camera, a smart watch and so on) left me speechless right from the beginning. But also the fact that once again i was able to get to know new people or in this case blogger colleagues from all over Europe makes such an experience even more special and unique.
So once we arrived at the Arena Berlin we had the chance to check out the whole venue which seems to be a playground for adults. You not only had the chance to check out and buy the latest pieces of the different brands who were showcasing their latest collections, the Bread and Butter also included interactive stands, amazing fashion shows, the presentation of the GigiXTommy Collection with Gigi Hadid as a special guest, ASAP Rocky, Food Stations and fun After Show Parties. So since i was invited as a blogger i also had the chance to discover the Press Lounge which was actually a Boat called Hoppetosse, which is anchored along the banks of the Spree River. Another highlight of this amazing weekend was definitely the ‚under the sky’ dinner on saturday (never saw such wonderful decorated table) followed by a Berlin street style shoot on sunday! So once again - big thanks to Zalando you did a great job and i’m really grateful for this unforgettable experience!

As we all know, Chanel N°5 is one of the world’s most popular and iconic perfumes. Of course it’s not everyone’s cup o tea but nothing says class, sophistication and elegance than this little glass botlle created over 90 years ago.
So since i’ve always been a big fan of Chanel (that’s actually the reason why i ended up choosing fashiontweed as my blogname) i was super excited to be invited to the exlclusive presentation of the new version of the Chanel N°5 called ‚L'Eau’ which will be available by the end of September. Of course it still contains N°5' s vital essences but Oliver Polge who's the house perfumer of Chanel managed to develop a lighter and fresher interpretation of the original in order to draw a younger audience to the legendary Chanel N°5. L’Eau opens bright with citrus top notes of lemon, mandarin, orange, neroli but you can still make out the rose and white flowers with cedar and white musk being noticed as the base notes. And what’s better to celebrate this reincarnation of fragrance with a brand new but also mystirous muse. Like her mother before, Lily Rose Depp is the new face of Chanel N°5 L’Eau. As a fashion film lover myself i’m super curious how the new campaign directed by Johan Renck turned out because for now the french fashion house only dropped two 10-second videos (The Announcement Film 1 & 2 - absolutely love the music)that proves that we can expect something completely different. So all in all i can highy recommend this new scent which seems to be the perfect option if your over those fruity florals and sweet scents and ready to to return to the classics.
