H&M x Balmain

HM:Balmain_Collaboration

Last night at the Billboard Music Awards, Balmain‘s Olivier Rousteing arrived on the red carpet with Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner in gorgeous outfits which obviously seemed to be by the French house.

However, Rousteing took the opportunity to tell the world that the ensembles were actually a first look at Balmain’s upcoming collaboration with H&M that will hit the stores worldwide on November 5, 2015. What great news to start the week!

Contest: Salvatore Ferragamo Emozione

Creative Still Life Image - Emozione (2)

«Love is nothing but the emotions we live» …. isn’t that just so wonderfully said, so poetic and emotional. We all know that there is nothing more amazing than being in love with the right person. It gives you that certain glow, that radiance that makes you sparkle throughout the day and that provides you with an unknown energy.

Salvatore Ferragamo has bottled that emotion for the launch of the Italian house’s new fragrance EMOZIONE. For women with a refined taste, this sophisticated scent brings forth an emotional harmony of chypre-floral ingredients with woody undertones, created to highlight emotions and pleasures that life offers.

Piaget Possession – It’s My Turn

headerSandra_Bauknecht_PIaget_MyTurn_POssession

When I was in the beginning of my 20s, I was dying to own a Piaget Possession ring. Luckily enough, my parents gifted me with one that I still treasure. You might imagine my excitement when the house of PIAGET approached me as their Swiss ambassador to be part of their social media campaign for the launch of the NEW possession jewelry collection.

We shot the visuals as well as the video that you can see below Mid March 2015 in Paris. 25 years after its first launch, Piaget is expanding its iconic line in honour of the third millennium.

Piaget-256

But what is so special about this line? It’s a ring inside a ring, a second rotating band with which to play. “Turn, turn and captivate the world with a simple movement…” one little touch is enough.

238967-444x500

It’s a symbol of power and of the choices we as women make for ourselves to take on the world.
I love the campaign’s slogan: “Turn, and the world is yours.” Imagine that with each stroke you can start over again. Isn’t that imagination magical and wearing it around your finger gives you the partner in crime to remind you of that fact every day.

Chabi Nouri, Director of Jewlery Marketing, Communications, and Brand Equity, mentioned to me once that turning the ring is for her “an addictive gesture.” She explained it: “Sometimes I stroke it gently with my thumb to help me think, and to refocus on what is really important.” I adore her approach. My ring can be like a piece of peace in this ultra-fast-paced contemporary world we are living in, a little companion to help reflect and think.

The new collection offers many different varieties to choose from. The choice is yours.
And here is the final video:

A huge thank you to the whole team of Studio Daylight for this amazing shoot!

A really great experience was to meet Jessica Chastain again, the new international ambassador for Piaget, who shot the advertising campaign in Paris the same day in the same studio right before me.

Happy Belated Mother’s Day

Chanel_Mothersday

 You might wonder why I post wishes for Mother’s Day two days after the actual celebration. The reason is that I would like to remind everyone that we should worship our mums every single day. I read this amazing quote recently: “Call your mother. Tell her you love her. Remember you’re the only person who knows what her heart sounds like from the inside.” It’s so true!

Surprise her! Personally speaking, I was over the moon when those CHANEL must-haves found their way into my closet this weekend.

Chanel_BAg_SS15

Protest-inspired, with slogans like ‘Make Fashion Not War‘ and ‘Feministe Mais Feminine,’ the S/S 2015 bags and accessories make a huge statement and every women’s heart leap with joy.
In CHANEL stores now.

LoL, Sandra
