Las Rozas Village Madrid

A few days ago I had the pleasure to visit Las Rozas Village in Madrid, one of the nine Villages, located in Europe’s favourite cities. It’s a luxury outlet center, home to more than 90 boutiques, from highstreet brands to luxury designers like Gucci, Versace, Missoni or the British superbrand Burberry . After visiting their Parisian village a year ago I was extremely happy to explore it in Madrid. What I loved the most was its charming architecture and a big terrace with an amazing view of the mountains, especially beautiful in the late afternoon, where I could have a cold drink after shopping. If you’re worried about hot temperatures in Madrid, especially in the summer, then I can promise it won’t be a big deal in the village. Each boutique has air conditioned inside, and outside you can try delicious icecream from Amorino to cool off.

But let’s get back to boutiques in Las Rozas Village. If you like Spanish brands, not necessairly these super popular highstreet brands which we all know but for example Bimba y Lola or Aristocrazy which is btw. my absolutely favourite jewellery brand of all times, then it’s a perfect place for you to buy great pieces in great prices all year round. It’s like sale season which never ends. Sounds good, right?! Apart from Spanish brands it’s worth to visit Furla ( I’m in love with this black mini tote which you can see on the pictures below) , Gucci, Loewe or some smaller cute stores with cotton tees or home accessories. You will love their products but also each boutique has an interesting and unique interior what makes your shopping experience more fun even if you’re not a big fan of shopping. After that you can eat traditional Spanish tapas or just a healthy green salad. And finally have a face massage in Orogold.

This dress cought my eye in February when I spotted Alexa Chung wearing it for Unique show in Tate Britain during London Fashion Week. It hit the store a few months later and got sold out in one day. Alexa made it so popular, that’s a fact, but it’s also beautiful and I’m not surprised it was gone so quickly. This time I matched it with black boots to break that romantic appeal and make it more edgy. And of course my new fav babe, Chloe Faye in black. Even though Faye bags are not very practical – it is heavy and space inside is very small – I found Faye as one of the most beautiful bags from current season.
And a question for you! Guess where we took these photos?

Paris, Le Marais

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.

In Berlin with Olympus

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!
