These are my pictures from a trip to Paris a few weeks ago. I went there for Men’s Fashion Week to attend shows and events. As always, I had a great time, not only because of the fact it was fashion week and it was in Paris but it was also the first time this year I felt real summer, the weather was hot and perfect. I never understand those who complain about high temperatures, because this is exactly how summer should be.
Coming back to my outfit, I always feel like wearing more feminine and boho clothes when I’m in Paris. Do you also have that feeling that a particular city or place makes you feel special and you want to wear something a little bit different than what you’d wear usually? So I went for this white boho look: off shoulder shirt with white Levi’s shorts and Chloe Faye bag. And if you’re wondering where we took these pictures, it was in pretty Le Marais, a few minutes walking from Etienne Marcel metro station.

Last week I had a pleasure to visit Berlin together with Olympus for the opening of their photo gallery pool party. I haven’t been in town for more over a year, maybe that’s the reason I enjoyed my time there so much. What’s more my sister Magdalena moved to Berlin last year and could show me around, like a real local.
I lived in Ackselhouse, the most beautiful and cosy hotel I’ve had a chance to stay in. We took these shots on the terrace and in the little back garden. If you like palm trees, pink and Californian vibes, you’re going to love this spot.

Firstly I wanted to apologise to you for only posting basic outfits lately. But it’s summer now, and that’s what I feel best in. You know when it’s hot and you don’t want to overcomplicate your clothes so you only throw on jeans and a t-shit and go out to enjoy the sun? Well its like that for me lately, so to all of you who like when I look more feminine or wear something more exotic than this basic duo, I’m sorry! So I was wearing a white ribbed top and new favourite jeans from a Neuw Denim. They are so raw and crude, I love them. It’s 100% jeans in jeans. It doesn’t get any better than this. Neuw Denim is an Australian-Swedish brand, which is a definite must know. I had an absolute pleasure to take part in their summer party in Shoreditch a few days ago and meet the creative director of the brand. If you live in London you can go try them on at the pop up story in Harvey Nichols.
You’re also probably wondering where we shot these pictures. Well, to put you out of your misery, right here in London, 5 minutes away from my house. It reminds me of Highlane in Meatpacking District, NYC, but it’s actually beautiful and under appreciated humble Little Venice Canal in London. I love it in the summer, I often sit on the bank and sunbathe. It’s so un-Londony and pretty exciting. Tomorrow I’m shooting off to Berlin with Olympus, make sure you’re following me on Instagram @alicezielasko and Snapchat @aliceziel. Have a great week!

Today I wanted to introduce you a supercool brand called Frank Body. When it comes to skincare I like discovering new products. It’s not good for skin to use the same products constantly so I’m always hunting for new ones.
I’ve been using these three products: a creamy face cleanser, a face scrub and an everyday face moisturiser over the last month and absolutely love the effect. It’s perfect for sensitive skin like mine. Probably because of the natural ingredients like green coffee extract, cocoa or almond. Ok, now let’s be honest. We all love when our beauty products look sweet and pretty. These pink bottles and tubes from Frank Body are the cutest. My biggest surprise though was inside… The consistence of the face cleanser and a face scrub is dark grey, almost black, like mud. I don’t remember if I’ve ever cleaned my face using a black liquid before. It’s so fun! Ok, I won’t tell you anything more, now you can get them online and try by yourself!
These are some of the photos from my photoshoot for Free People. We shot them with Amanda, an incredibly talented photographer from Miami in my London neighbourhood of Notting Hill. I was wearing Free People styles for SS15. It was a big pleasure as always working with them, as they are one of my favourite brands ever. Check out other pictures here. Have a nice weekend! x
