My ABURY Look: Leonie from FOURhang auf

Leonie has truly gone in for a career working many years at eBay, where she launched three designer collections with personalities such as Guido Maria Kretschmer, Til Schweiger and Eva Padberg. Now she’s one of the four ladies behind FOURhang auf, a blog about lifestyle, family, food and of course fashion! So, without any doubt, with her fashion expertise and striking outfits Leonie was the ideal candidate to shoot our first “My ABURY Look” series, turning various individual accessories from different cultures into coherent intercultural ABURY looks.

Out of all ABURY products Leonie chose her personal favourites and created three amazing looks that couldn’t be more different yet at the same time all expressing her love for colours and playfulness. Together with our photographer Suzana Holtgrave we visited Leonie in her beautiful apartment in Berlin. After getting slightly carried away in her wardrobe (a heaven for any fashionista!) Leonie glammed up!

Leonie’s first ABURY Look 1

The first look I call “ABURY in Red Hongkong”, as Leonie combined her long red satin kimono dress from Hongkong with some of our Selected by ABURY products. The Birdy Clutch, which was handmade in India, adds some carefully hand-beaded summer flair to the outfit. At the same time, the red bracelet made from organic tagua nuts gives it the finishing touch with shapes from the Ecuadorian rainforest. This look definitely allows Leonie to generate buzz at the next dinner party!

Leonie’s second ABURY Look

For the second session we captured “Leonie’s Golden Leo Look”. Fringes, feathers, patterns, sparkles and glow – this look combines it all. Who said silver and gold do not go together? I love the combination of Leonie’s silver shimmering hair and the golden accessories!

Leonie tops the leopard print dress with various accessories from our collections: The Iona Feather Earrings and the Hanae Necklace from India, the Petite Berber Bag from our Moroccan collection, a Woven Ring from Tanzania and a Tagua Bracelet from Ecuador, bringing a representative of a third continent into the game. Four cultures in one outfit!

Leonie’s third ABURY Look

At last, there was the third ABURY look. Leonie knows how to turn a casual everyday outfit into a statement appearance. After all, there is no such thing as boring or quiet in her style! My personal favourite is her “Casual Ribbon” look:

We all know there are dozens of ways to wear a scarf but this one must be one of the best! The big ribbon adds playfulness to the jeans and blazer combination. At the same time, the handbag and jewellery add colour and surround Leonie in a turquoise summer breeze.

For this look Leonie decided to wear our Peace Silk Handloom Scarf from India. The flowery pattern and the colours are reflected in the Mykonos Clutch, which is handmade in India, too. Leonie’s hand is once again decorated with our Tagua Bracelet from Ecuador and a Woven Ring from Tanzania.
