    MARMARIS: LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

    OPENING_Web

    MARMARIS

    01-03 June, 2015
    Marmaris is the sort of place that most people get sniffy about. It’s essentially a Turkish town-sized resort location, but as a three- or four-day break from doing proper travel is brilliant. We found it blissfully calm and quiet – two words the city isn’t readily associated with. As a rule, we like the idea of having a good time and it’s OK to have a bit of relax every now and then, even if it deviates from the guide book prescription.

    For our stay, we picked the D-Resort Grand Azur which had a relaxed and resorty approach. All the facilities were excellent and, visually, the place looked really good – and, to us, a place that looks good is always a winner. The beach was alright, too, but no better than elsewhere in the world. Of course, a lot depends on how you define a great beach. And in truth, it’s often the case that
    the most famous beaches aren’t the most impressive ones. The room was very much our highlight: spacious, sleek, with intuitive design and a pool view, which made for great people watching. All in all a fair deal and a pretty good place to stay.

    Whilst on vacation, we like being able to fill an hour or so by chilling in our room, before wandering down to the beach. It might be the air conditioning or the free wi-fi, but we always find it somehow therapeutic. We also love getting an healthy tan before getting deeper into summer though. This time around Davines
    and its sun care and hair products did a fab job for us in Turkey this time around. Not only did they help adding a little color to our pale bodies but kept Thibaud’s hair feeling silky. Fantastic, innit?

    You know what? We are unashamedly in love with dolphins. Despite years of keeping an eye out whilst snorkeling and swimming in open water, we had never seen a dolphin in the wild. Revelation: the whole point of traveling all the way down to Marmaris was for its open-sea dolphin therapy centre. The whole swimming with dolphin thing started  make sense as soon as we
    jumped into the water. There’s just something special about it that makes you deliriously happy. The rest of the trip should seem miserable in comparison. It wasn’t. Every now and then we took our pic from other different activities or chilled at the pool, which made for great Instagram shots.

    Everyday, at 9pm, we creeped out from the hotel, stumbled out onto the beach and sat down on the jetty, meters away. The sunset light was always at its absolute faintest and made for postcard shots at just about every angle. This scene is the thing we missed the most when we returned to Berlin.
    It’s only when you leave and lose it that you start to realize just how flattering it is. If ever there’s a moment that shows the magic of nature, that was definitely it. And no man-made achievements will ever be able to top that. Hoşçakal beautiful Marmaris!

    Our very first New York Fashion Week was a great surprise. Throughout the week we took a look at most SS16 menswear collections, picked our favorites looks and broke down the 3 shows that mattered most this season. All the looks seemed very accessible, with clean lines, edgy vibes, beautiful color palettes, and modern designs. A big thumbs up for you, New York! Thank you for the great show and see you in January!

    In the blink of an eye, Fashion Month has come to an end. Although it’s a busy time, we always enjoy mixing up our regular routines to check out the new collections at runway shows and fashion fairs. This time around, during Berlin Fashion Week, we made a quick stop at the mavi booth at Bread & Butter, to have a preview of next summer’s trends. For the occasion, I put on my Ultra Move skinny jeans by mavi – my latest crush on stretch denim apparel. They are soft, comfortable and literally go with everything. Definitely a must have in your wardrobe for SS16.
