KENZO H&M PRE-LAUNCH PARTY

Lois Opoku lisforlois Kenzo hm Party
My last event before I left for Ghana was the long awaited pre-launch party of the H&M x Kenzo collaboration. These H&M parties are what people live for and everyone wants to get on the list, because not only do you get to shop the collection in a much secludedter crowd and certain amount of comfort (i.e. you won't get trampled over, you do not have to wait in line 6 a.m. in the morning when the store opens 9 a.m. plus you don't have to fight with shopaholic xyz over that same dress, because it's the last in your size!) a night earlier, but the party itself is super fun too.
The collection itself wasn't really a stunner and I think people weren't really buying into the hype as they did for H&M Balmain or Alexander Wang or Versace..

OSHUN BEAUTY EVENT

Lois Opoku oshun BEAUTY Event lisforlois Oshun Beauty event lisforlois A couple of week ago I attended the coolest beauty event I've ever been to! Not because it was specially done or anything - trust me in my 5 years of blogging I have been to a whole lotta events, and some have been the craziest things I've ever experienced - but it was because of the energy and the cause. It was special in a different sense.
Dedicated to celebrating the beauty of dark skin the team of OShun called all black girls to come out and celebrate with a special make up session. Yes this event was entirely dedicated to females of colour, but living and struggling in western society, sometimes we gotta do our own parties too!
Remember another woman's beauty is not the absence of your own.
Light skin girls, Dark Skin girls,
White girls, Black girls,
YOU are ALL B E AU T I F U L.

LEVIS 505C PRE LAUNCH PARTY

lois opoku levis 505c fashion week party lisforlois
What's up guys?
How have you been? It's been super quiet here lately, but I'm back motivated as ever! I finally got my hands on all my fashion week material I shot together with Phillip, which is why I'm ending the drought here on my blog with my first event from fashion week - the Levis 505c launch party that took place on the first night after my first shows right at the Ramones museum. I made a quick outfit change somewhere in the city and opted for my new 505c of course. It's a very loose fit/straight cut kinda jeans that kinda of looks like a hybrid of a mom jeans and boyfriend jeans. Super casual.
But you can dress it up any way - casual, edgy (which I tried here), you name it and go for it..
The event itself was nice. Berlin's fashion crowd gathered in the middle of the street, people enjoying a beer, a drink or two and street food served right of a food truck whiles polas were being made to save all the memories of that night.
I took home two polaroids, two memories caught on film.

It was a good start to fashion week..

MOET WORLD PARTY DAY

Lois Opoku Moet World Party Day lisforlois
Last Saturday Moet invited people all around the World to come together and celebrate with them, sip cocktails and endless amounts of champagne and enjoy the day eating the most fancy finger food (which tasted divine btw!) while they had a few surprises in store. All around the globe in different cities it was the Moet World Party day.

The location was magical. The Ku'damm beach turned new Cappucino Cafe (one of Berlin West's new hotspot and It place for the rich) was the perfect spot. Moet had turned the place into a Pinterest heaven or something of Tumblr, a place I would have easily gotten married at. Although at first I was a little irritated about the snobbish vibes it turned into an amazing day.
My best friend and I enjoyed ourselves, met a few familiar faces as we lay in the sun and had time to catch up on what's been going on in our lives. I had so much fun on the pool floaty!

In the evening the stage opened up to a surprise act: Adesse!
Adesse's live performance was great. I found him through Instagram one day and have been following since. To hear his music live is quit the difference from hearing him on the sub with my iPhone.
Have fun looking through the pictures. I hope I was able to catch at least a glimpse of the atmosphere from the Moet party.

BBQ WITH TIMBERLAND AND THE NEW #TBLBOATSHOES

Lois Opoku striped dress OOTD lisforlois
About two weeks ago I had the pleasure of having my first BBQ of the season with Timberland in celebration of their new model the #TBLboatShoes, a loafer made for summer. The location was beautiful, the BBQ delicious, as we seemed to float on the Spree. The platform we were situated on did. Or so it felt at least. You could hear the gentle waves crash against the platform. It all looked beautiful and somewhat idyllic as if stolen from a still painting. It was almost perfect; had it not been for the chilling breeze.
But you know me. It takes little put a smile on my face and wrap me up in a sense of content. And so all it took was a face of a good friend I hadn't seen in a while. Beautiful jolly Nastya. Plus there was good food. Good drinks - double plus. Some more familiar faces - add another plus. A well decorated location that could have easily been a memory of something I might have seen on Pinterest while browsing inspiration or mistaken for an illusion, but the cold breeze I felt, made sure to remind me it was all quite real. A lovely PR Team - yet another plus.
Besides eating and chatting and discovering the latest Timberland addition, we got to choose and customize our own pair of Timberland Boat Shoes. Tucked in a little shack sat a lady patiently stitching on all our customizations chosen from various boxes of colorful patches in comic style.

I picked out a pair in baby blue and kept the customization to a minimum. Simply a little lightening in the right far corner of my right shoe. Would you laugh if I told you it nearly took me an hour to decide what to put on my shoes just to go with a little lightning tucked away in a corner? You would, probably shake your head smirking.
The shoes are made of the softest leather. And they feel comfortable.
Thank you so much Timberland for the lovely evening and BBQ session.
Thank you for the shoes!

Mint&berry flower market lois Opoku lisforlois
Hey guys,

I had the most wonderful Sunday in a while. Would you believe me if I said it was magical? I visited the Mint&Berry Flower market with Tissi, Mali and my boy. Local florists, street food and workshops between a sea of beautiful flowers while you had the opportunity to shop the new Mint&Berry spring/summer collection, which btw has the sweetest summer floral dresses and pieces that scream "we need spring, summer and sun"!

TIGER OF SWEDEN OPENING

Tiger of sweden Berlin Opening
The Tiger of Sweden party took place last week in honour of the new store that opened its doors at Neue Schönhauser Str., right in heart of Mitte.
The store is quite small, but well arranged and immediately inviting. (Kudos to the interior designer! This is merchandising done right!). I've known Tiger of Sweden for quite some time. I visited the Tiger of Sweden Opening party at Galerie Lafayette, one of my very first Fashion Week events ever. Nice to see that a few years later they now have a store of their own in Berlin.
Tiger of Sweden is a womenswear as well as menswear label - very classic, very elegant yet somehow very effortless. The new store however is solely for men.
The party itself seemed to be a success. Blogger-wise I was one of the very few invited (or spotted), next to Dustin, Nadine and the boys of Stylecaser. OMG finally met the cute boys in person and they are more beautiful than ever. (Ok I'm done crushing *.*)

THE EXCLUSIVE DIESEL WATCH BERLIN PARTY

DIESELWATCHESBERLIN_064 Diesel watch Berlin exclusive Party
About a week ago I attended a very exclusive event in celebration of the launch of the new Diesel watches held at the Diesel Store at Ku'damm. I look around and they're no bloggers, just the girls from Blogger Bazaar and the boys from Dandy Diary. But the store is packed, packed with the it-crowd.
Amongst the crowd, the man of the hour himself. We met Andrea Rosso of Diesel, lovely Janne introduced us to him. It was a pleasure meeting him and having a quick chat as everyone was looking to have a little bit of his attention and time, yet he listened to us intently and turned out to be such a down to earth kinda guy who happens to love Berlin.
What we are doing in the first picture is taking selfies and making Andrea part of my snapchat story. He was more than happy to be part of it and not shy to pose with us. Welcome to 2015, this is the way we keep memories.

PUMA THE CREEPER BY RIHANNA FENTY RELEASE + PUMA MITTE STORE LAUNCH

puma creeper rihanna 
Last night I attended the Puma preview party and latest sneaker release of Puma by Rihanna The Creeper. Great music, the best drinks I've had at an event so far (hell yeah blinking mug Absolut cocktails!) and a good crowd. You know, I love the sneaker scene and their parties. The people are the realest. And yes finally a party they don't play crappy electro beats, but some good old hip hop. The new store located directly at Hackescher Markt looks good and it's spacious spread across two floors. I enjoyed my evening with my main squeeze Joeva and met Sara Joleen and Nhi who happen to be the cutest!
Not only were we celebrating the opening of the new Puma Mitte store, but also the first and early glimpse of the new Puma by Rihanna creeper. And judging by the crazy amount of likes I got on my picture on Instagram yesterday, I think it's safe to say, these babies have caused a major hype.

I of course immediately alerted you on Snapchat as the shoes went live on puma.com and of course you were able to be with me at the party right as it was happening. (my SC handle: loisopoku - yes, you are welcome ;) )

LEVIS 700 LOT GALLERY

Levis 700 los Gallery lisforlois
When it comes to jeans Levis is a classic, iconic. A brand you immediately associate with the word 'jeans'. Levis organized a little gallery opening celebrating their 700 jeans line in forms of works of art. All shot by a gifted photographer Stephanie Pfaender. Curated by girls like me - fashion bloggers/influencers. I was lucky to be part of the evening in my Levis 710 and get a glimpse of the photography admits the artists themselves.

It was then I met one of my favorite bloggers I've been following ever since I discovered the bloggersphere: Sabrina of afterDRK. Struck and completely in awe I forgot to ask Sabrina for a selfie, you know as a little memory to keep. But I'll keep the moment as a memory forever.

EMU AUSTRALIA CUSTOMIZE LAB EVENT

emu australia event lisforlois
Hi my lovely people,

On Friday I stopped by the Görtz store on Ku'damm after EMU Australia invited my to come by and customize my own pair of EMU boots. September has passed, October is here and slowly, but gradually autumn has arrived. The temperature is dropping like the leaves.
But Berlin has been blessed with that September Sun the last couple of days.
I'm ready to change my flats for booties and throw over thick knits instead of light cardigans.
In the customization lab I choose the classic light brown boots. With the buttons on the side I can easily fold over my new boots.
We were able to choose from crazy designs and patterns, snowflakes and typography.
But I choose to keep it simple, very simple. A mere L.O. gracing the outer side of my right boot. My initials. With my new boots I'm ready for fall.
Thank You EMU Australia.

ONE OF THOSE SUMMER DAYS.. AND MEMORIES

Umami Berlin Opening Lois Opoku Louisa Rachor lisforlois
I was going through pictures on my external drive, my laptop and flickr account. I found so many unpublished pictures and stories, so many finished and barely started scraps of what were supposed to be blog posts for you. Stories, reminders, memories for me. A journal and account of my life for us.
So much has gone lost, stuck in internet limbo because I never finished typing my thoughts, or unready to hit the publish button.

Among those I found these pictures. I still remember that day vividly. It was the opening of Umami Berlin, tucked in side street behind SoHo House. (Dikjubi had successfully opened his little restaurant - Umami. It's really good!) The taste of his mini burgers and the conversations we had. How especially pretty I thought Louisa looked, the sound of Lisa's laugh in the middle of a conversation and the exact temperature of that day on my skin.

EXCLUSIVE: MONSTER x CHANEL - LUXURY MEETS MONSTER SOUND

Monster x Chanel headphones Lois Opoku lisforlois
The first glimpse of the exclusive collaboration of Monster and Chanel was first seen on the runway in Paris of Chanel's Fall 14/15 collection in Karl Lagerfeld's famous Chanel Supermarket installation. After Swizz Beatz and King Karl posed for a picture on Instagram everyone was talking about them.. and the hideous 12 000$ Chanel shopping basket. By that time I had long had confirmation that Monster was indeed working on a Chanel heaphone and I couldn't wait to see the product. Then the hype about the headphones died down a little. One week ago at IFA was the first ever official press reveal of the luxury headphones taking Monster to a whole new level. And I was one of the only few to lucky enough to be present.

OLYMPUS PEN GENERATION FASHIONGALLERY OPENING

Lois Opoku Olympus PEN generation Fashion Photography Gallery Opening BERLIN
What used to start out with inofficial parties on Monday's - Monday's have become part of Fashion Week. So my first stop this year was the Opening of the Olympus PEN Generation Fashion Gallery (had to sit out on the European Fashion Award FASH 2015 and Zalando Fashion House. It was just too much to start off fashion week and frankly too little time).
The Gallery featured amazing photography by some of my favourite bloggers, such as Kayla from Not Your Standard or my dear friend Amandine or Chloe, a Fashion Blogger from the Netherlands, who I met 4 years ago during my very first Fashion Week.
The Gallery was good. The photography pretty amazing and it was a great way to start of fashion week, especially because there were so many international bloggers present.
My highlight had to have been when I met Ivana Carpio (goddess of Love Asthetics), who I've been following since day one. I've always looked up to her and I briefly met her about two years ago at Fashion Week. Didn't think she would remember me. But she did and she came up to me. She really is amazing.

SUMMER ON A BOAT WITH PFLANZENFREUDE.DE

Lois Opoku white dress summer lisforlois
A couple of week back, we got very lucky in Berlin. Well summer has decided to return this week, but that day, the sun decided to grace us with her presence after weeks of rain and Pflanzenfreude.de took us on a boat trip across the Spree. What a perfect day to wear white, Joeva and me did not .
I wore my white dress I got on a little shopping spree with Domi and Mali to Forever 21. It's the perfect summer mini dress. Cute, flowy and a sweet front detail. I chose to wear espadrilles, simple, comfy and still chic, especially navy striped espadrilles or chanel look-a-likes (my personal favorite).
It was a beautiful day and I had a lot of fun. Some of you followed my story on snapchat (loisopoku), you know what I'm talking about. I'm sorry, but you just can't suppress your inner Beyonce ;P
Surrounded by pretty flowers and plants, endless cups of froyo + fruits, summer lemonade with the sun kissing my skin as the swift breeze of Berlin's Spree cooled my face - a moment of total bliss.
You know that tingling sensations on your skin? That's summer.
If every day could start like that... *sigh*
Thanks for having me on board, Pflanzenfreude.de - Thanks for filling my morning with a little more Freude (def.: happiness)

COCKTAIL WITH JIL SANDER NAVY

Lois Opoku blue jacket ootd lisforlois
A couple of weeks back I enjoyed a cocktail evening with Jil Sander Navy. For the occasion I wore my midi-length figure hugging H&M Trend dress paired with a cobalt blue biker jacket and the perfect black bucket bag from Berlin based Designer Nina and her label Zookie. The is suede leather amazing.
Jil Sander Navy is very modern, clean cuts and silhouettes; the color scheme very simple: navy, bold green, black & white graphics and the occasional signal color orange as a subtle highlight. The store concept is a mirror of the Jil Sander philosophy. Jil Sander Navy reminds me a lot of COS but much more high end and quality. I was surprisingly very much into the new collection and I nearly picked the loafer high-heels to come home with me. The collection is very unlike me and what I'd usually wear. I prefer anything tailored at the waist, since that is what looks good on me.
But that's fun in fashion, being able to try new stuff out. Don't let yourself be defined by what's been, what you are accustomed to or people's idea of who and what you are. Be brave enough to try new things, new styles.

DOUGLAS LAUNCHES OWN BEAUTY LINE - DOUGLAS BEAUTY- EVENT

douglas beauty event lisforlois
Last week I had a wonderful time during my short trip to Hamburg, which allowed me to take a break from uni studies and some emotional stress. The reason for my short less-than-24h- trip was an invitation from Douglas allowing me to be part of their exclusive launch celebrations for their very first and very own Make Up line, which started with a blogger breakfast and finally getting to know the faces behind the various mails and the pretty amazing Douglas team.
If you're from Europe there is no way you don't know Douglas. If you don't, Douglas is pretty much your destination for High End products from Chanel to Lancome, Estée Lauder to M.A.C., Benefit Cosmetics and Co. It's the only place I know of to go to when looking for good Make Up and I'm ready to splurge a bit. It's also the only place I shop for beauty presents. Until recently Douglas only sold other brands, for the first time you'll be able to buy their own Make Up line.

We started with a delicious breakfast with all the girls and we which really turned into a beautiful relaxed event, that didn't get boring and we got to do what bloggers love and do best: play with make up and Instagram,Instagram, Instagram! from a greatly lit location. #bestselfielight everrr!

So here's what you've been waiting for, let's talk Make Up!
