Heritage and Tradition.
When I think of Burberry, these are two words that come to mind. In my opinion, Burberry is one of those few brands that will always hold its high place in the fashion world, representing this strong connection to the past, present and future. In other words, Burberry is so classy that it will never go out of style!
It all began in 1856. Founded by 21 year-old Thomas Burberry in Basingstoke, England, the brand was beloved for its waterproof outdoor specialty. Mr. Burberry invented the gabardine – which is the water-resistant fabric that his Internationally beloved trench coats are made out of.
I’m obsessed with it – not only is Burberry the king of the tartan pattern, but it’s also a super versatile brand that can be combined and worn in an endless variation of styles.
I decided to walk a bit on the wild side this lovely spring afternoon – by wearing the chosen Burberry pieces with my favorite punk-influenced ripped jeans shorts and 12cm high-heeled boots. I’m a big fan of combining the wild rock black, slightly gothic look with a conservative chic flair. A strange combination, I know, but unique and very edgy. Aren’t we all born to be a bit wild?
Summer 2016 is almost here and with it comes the overwhelming urge to wear a splash of color. I personally love pattern clashing, like I did with the two different Burberry tartan colors – red and beige. Who says what is wrong or right? My advice is never to follow trends and simply invent your own individual look that makes you feel special.
We all have our own vixen, princess, queen, rock star, shy girl, dare devil, intellectual woman, femme fatale, girl-next-door, mother, child and angel living inside of us. My favorite thing to do is wear a completely different look as often as I can, which satisfies each individual facet of my character. Changing your look like a chameleon is not a bad thing at all – it allows you to discover yourself and see what feels right on the inside and outside.
Another super cool look for the Burberry blouse would be with tight black leather leggings, a blue jeans or black a-line skirt with a belt at the waist, or the classical beige riding pants. This look can be worn with pumps or flat biker / riding boots. Topped off with a proper hat and thin skin-tight gloves.
For me, fashion is a statement about how I feel at that very moment when I put my outfit on. Thomas Burberry started a legend back then that gave us a chance to scream our feelings out loud – in style and elegance.
Have fun with your clothing and self-expression.
Be free. Be wild. Be brave. Be yourself.
My Burberry pieces for this shooting are: yellow rain coat, bright blue short wool duffle jacket, men’s XXL shirt – which I wore with a thin black belt, a vintage bag and matching scarf.

As I woke up today, I looked out the window and was not sure if it is still night or already morning! I jumped out of the bed and ran to my colors treasure chest and started to dig for a rainbow to brighten up my day! We have arrived at the gray season. Since there is quite a lack of snow this winter, we are only left with various shades of grays. However, do not let that stop you from bringing out your internal sunshine and happiness with bright colors!
A few weeks ago I was asked by the BILD newspaper what I think Frankfurt should improve on, and one of my answers were: That people should wear more colors here. So staying true to my own advice, I have decided to delve into my wardrobe to spice up a dark winter day.
Do not be afraid to mismatch colors! We do not live in a perfect world in a time where everything has to precisely match. We have arrived in a time to explore outside of the edges. Mix and match. Let your creativity and imagination run wild! I even go to the extent of wearing clashing patterns. I believe that 2016 is a perfect time to live boldly and explore your tastes and uniqueness!
Fashion goes in circles. It tends to repeat itself, just like the natural cycles of life. Therefore, bring out the vintage, like I did with the gloves, and combine it with something completely crazy and out of the ordinary. Have no fear to go the extra mile and wear something different. I would suggest to never try to conform and always have your unique touch in everything that you do and wear. Dare to show your passion, desire and make yourself happy!
As the days grow shorter and the sun doesn’t come out to play as often anymore, I feel that I need a little bit of extra color and spice in my outfits. Ever since I was a wild teenager, I always had the same yearly clothing routine. During the winters I wore only black and during the summers I wore mostly bright colors. This was my way of expressing myself and my emotional association with the seasons.
Yet as I grow older, I find myself liking the winter more and more. I think of the cozy nights in front of the fireplace, the romantic Christmas markets of Europe, the warm sweet red wines and the fresh walks outside in the cold crisp air. With this new found love for the cold, I slowly realize that it doesn’t have to be all about the black colors for me anymore. This year I will introduce more bright colors and funky cuts to my wardrobe. Gone are the drabby wide cut blacks and browns, and hello to my bright tight winter silhouettes.
I am happy to feature two of my favorite outfits from MCM this week. I visited the stylish Alesja Zuber of MCM for this occasion. For those who know my love for leather jackets, I absolutely had to have the classic tight black leather. I really like the silver hardware elements on it – the 2 vertical zippers on the front and attached leather belt with buckle on the bottom. This jacket takes the term “biker chick” to a new level and even manages to throw in a 3rd word to the mix: Chic Biker Chick! In my opinion this classic MCM leather jacket has the perfect mix of posh and bad-ass. What’s amazing about the jacket is that the shoulders are slightly padded and since the belt buckle can be closed tightly, this makes every body type look very slim at the waistline.
I combined the leather jacket with the special edition backpack – with the art of my friend Stefan Strumbel on it. His famous cuckoo clock decorates the front of the bag. Even Karl Lagerfeld owns one of Stefan’s famous cuckoo clocks. This one says “Heimat Loves You!” in neon on the front. I love how the neon colors and art piece decorated the bag to make it look so edgy and unique. Perfect as a splash of wild color to clash the winter gray sky!
I was very pleased to find out that MCM now offers its customers a well-fitted, warm winter coat with luxurious fur trim on the shoulders. It’s a very unique coat – which almost reminds me of a city version of Snow White. I combined it with a new arrival gray fur bag with an elegant chain to wear on one shoulder. The bag has beautiful details of pearls on it. It can also be worn across the front for the casual-chic look. And staying true to my winter color attack, I topped the look off with a bright purple MCM scarf mixed of wool and silk. I love the way this scarf looks and feel – it shimmers slightly in the light. I would wear the MCM scarf with jeans like I did on the photo, with a little black dress or even a long evening gown. It comes in many lovely colors. My favorite is definitely this purple one.
Today was a really fun and special day. I got to play dress up at MCM and swim in an ocean full of beautiful accessories. I have to admit that the MCM brand has really come a long way. They managed to stay on top of the trends offering their clients their famous heritage bags, yet also constantly coming up with new and exciting designs to freshen up their look – like the sought after backpacks, sneakers, scarves, etc. I can truly say: MCM, I am a fan now!
