So let me tell you what I have been doing these past days. When Vangardist - Austria´s finest editorial men´s fashion magazine came knocking I didn´t hesitate for a bit.


The idea was the following: gather a select group of bloggers from Germany and Austria, put them into the beautiful Villa Antoinette and shoot an editorial inspired by the term nostalgia.We were asked to describe what nostalgia means to us and how our past experiences have influenced our lives so far.

In addition to shooting the editorial and getting to know some very special people i got the chance to dive into the beautiful nature surrounding the villa.


Those of you who follow me on Snapchat (amazing_ilja) already got a glimpse of the upcoming issue.


It´s going to be released in june, and I have to tell you that I can´t wait to show you the result and my interview. Meanwhile you can find some infos about our trip below - stay tuned!
