Hi guys, here’s my full #BREADANDBUTTER16 report. As you may know (or spotted on snapchat/instagram) I visited Berlin last weekend for the Bread and Butter festival. I was invited by Zalando with my fellow European bloggers & influencers to explore the different brands at B&&B, sit front row at the fashion shows (Topshop, Puma, Zalando,…) meet Gigi Hadid and shoot in the streets of Berlin. After landing on friday afternoon a delicous lunch was served by the zalando summer house where we were staying. Healthy and delicious, what more can a girl want? Thanks to the amano group I got to know some interesting new tastes 😉
After stuffing our faces we got ready for our meet and greet with the hottest it-girl, Gigi Hadid. She was promoting her new collection in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger, available here. I’ve always been a big Gigi fan, she’s stunning in every way and it was an honor to meet her! When the moment arrived it all happened very quickly and I immediately turned into a sixteen year old fan girl ready to meet her big idol. My first words to her were ‘Hey, I’m sorry I’m a little sweaty‘. She replied ‘That fine, it’s hot in here‘. She’s so damn cool she replies with N.E.R.D lyrics… I think we’re best friends now. Like that’s not a crazy enough day, the night ended with an exclusive performance by A$AP Rocky. Not to spoil anything but I’m going to marry him, I said yes! Sorry girls, he’s mine
After a good night sleep (short but good) and another healthy breakfast we got ready to explore the streets of Berlin, the area called Mitte to be more specific. But not before we got our hair&make-up ready! Did I already mention they treated us like princesses? We were accompanied by a guide who told us all about the interesting facts of the beautiful Mitte like for example the old ballroom you can see in the pictures below. The pictures are taken with my Olympus pen Camera, a great new toy I can’t keep my hands off.
After our day in Mitte we were all invited for a fabulous rooftop dinner. The whole group was there and we got a chance to get to know one another while having burgers and cocktails! Off course everyone took the opportunity to shoot some streetstyle pictures. The golden hour is when the sun is a bit lower and the lighting is perfect. The night ended with some dancing at the boiler room. I have to say, the entire weekend was filled with amazing beats and I’m definitely going back to Berlin for a party weekend. Who’s with me?
Sunday was shooting day. The team did our hair and make-up and in the afternoon we all had our personal shoots with professional photographers. Mine was the Styleograph, a fashion photographer I’ve been following (on instagram off course) for a while now so it was an honor to work with him! In every picture I’m fully dressed by Zalando. It looks like they’re taking over my closet. I’m very gratefull I got to experience this amazing weekend with my girl Annabel pesant. We had the best time together and we’re definitely going on more adventures together!
