Taking A Break

Into A New Season

As you may have noticed lately I haven’t been posting regularly. That’s mainly because I’ve been traveling a lot and last Monday, the 21st of July, was my 22nd birthday, which kept me busy with preparations and celebrations. I kind of got to a point where I have to take a break and regroup myself. Focus myself on new things and decide what I want to do with my life. I’ve found it kind of difficult to keep up with the blog since Moritz went to New Zealand, everything had to be prepared much more in advance and I wasn’t able to realize all the visions I’ve had. This isn’t a farewell-note it’s just a see you soon, because I really hope to be back in the new season with fresh motivation, exciting new content and news to share! In the meantime I will of course update my social medias such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

In Berlin with seidensticker & Jacques Britt

Two weeks ago I was invited to Berlin by seidensticker and Jacques Britt to discover their new collections and novelties. It was an intense but great time I spent in the German capital. It all started with an early flight and arrival at the Mövenpick Hotel – a piece of Switzerland in the middle of Berlin. Afterwards we had a quick lunch and presentation of the two different brands with Jacques Britt being the luxury version and seidensticker with its Splendesto, Schwarze Rose and UNO SUPER SLIM lines the more affordable one.

Together with the other bloggers and the seidensticker & Jacques Britt team we afterwards headed to the PANORAMA fair in order to discover even more shirts! At their beautiful booth, where you could also find the frozen shirt (as seen above), we not only talked about shirt / color trends for next spring and summer season, but also about the different fabrics being used and the fabrication processes itself. Did you know that nearly all their shirts are easy to iron if at all? Now you know, thank me later for all the time that has saved you, because let’s be honest, ironing sucks! Anyway, after all the super interesting facts about the two brands last but not least our measurements were taken in order to get a tailor-made shirt, which I can’t wait for to arrive!

In the evening I dressed up elegantly and we went for dinner at Spindler & Klatt an Asian-fusion restaurant located right at the Spree river with an absolutely stunning view, cool interior and delicious food. Definitively recommendable.

This day spent with the seidensticker & Jacques Britt team was awesome and I’m very thankful for this great experience! Don’t forget to follow them on Facebook to keep up-to-date on news and trends.

As mentioned before I stayed at the Mövenpick Hotel, which amazed by its minimalistic interior and a touch of Swissness.
