My Look: Dinner with Harvey

sandra_bauknecht_dinner_with_harvey_herve_leger_extremely_piaget_opening_night_zff

Last Thursday, the opening night of the 12th Zurich Film Festival took place with the screening of the drama «Lion» that stars Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and David Wenham. It is a very sad movie based on the true story of a five-year-old boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia; 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family.

Festival directors and founders of the ZFF Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri with Iain Canning, Garth Davis and Harvey Weinstein on the green carpet before the screening.

For the opening night, film mogul Harvey Weinstein, director Garth Davis and producer Iain Canning had flown in. All three joined ASMALLWORLD at the dazzling opening night for an exclusive dinner at Conti restaurant, followed by an after-party to dance the night away.

My Look: The New Cool

Sandra_Bauknecht_Get_the_look_the_New_cool_Akris

«It’s all about the jacket! The jacket is a parka, a caban and a hoodie, always a blazer, it’s a suit, it could be a vest, a débardeur, a qipao and a redingote, a dress and even a gown.» – Albert Kriemler

AKRIS has come up with a new cool when it comes to dressing. For the last winter collection, creative director Albert Kriemler has quite obviously fallen in love with the jacket. I adore the versatility of his creations. The cropped fur part for example can be removed and the leather vest be worn solo. How cool is that?!

Besides, I am a big fan of the color combination of light grey and olive. Those two hues are a great match, unexpected and interesting together.

My look: Brighton grey kalgan lamb cropped jacketicon, Valentin grey leather vest and thin grey sweater, all by AkrisLady Buckle light olive green leather top handle bag

Pantone Color of the Year 2016

Pantone_Color_of_the_Year_2016

Get the look: Ruffled off-the-shoulder dress by Alexander McQueenColorado suede sandals by Aquazzura and Rockstud leather pouchicon by Valentino.

A softer take on color for 2016: For the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity are chosen as the PANTONE Color of the Year.
As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association. In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.

My Look: You Have My Whole Heart

Sandra Bauknecht in Azzedine Alaia

For a true fashion lover, Azzedine Alaïa is a must in a closet. An Alaïa dress is a seasonless wardrobe wonder piece that never lets you down. I bought my first item by the Tunisian-born designer probably 20 years ago and it still looks up to date. His designs play with discreet luxury, they are comfortable and ultra feminine. For the Bally x L’Officiel event I wore this look and played with the color combination of dark blue and black which I adore, it is so chic.

My look: Blue heart motif stretch-knit dress, black cropped fine-knit cardigan and corset belt, all by Azzedine AlaïaDirty ’50s stretch-denim jacket iconby Saint Laurent, dark blue suede strappy sandals by Miu Miu, Kelly So Black bag by Hermès, Limelight Gala watch and rose diamond necklace by Piaget, diamond ring and bracelet by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

Monsieur Alaïa, you have my whole heart…

My Look: Pleat – A Summer Treat

2k-Sandra_Bauknecht_Pleat_a_Summer_Treat

This summer, fashion designers all around the globe have been showing off their origami skills, crafting skirts that ripple with razor-sharp pleats. Best played out in shimmering metallics as seen at Proenza Schouler, cut to midi length, this style has felt the freshest to me. Don’t you think that the color combination of black, white, rose gold and purple is just a dream?!

My look: Foil-paneled pleated cloqué maxi skirt by Proenza Schouler, black cropped knitted sweater and Dance metallic ballet slippers, both by Saint Laurent, purple pashmina scarf by Christian Diorbar cuff in rose goldicon by Balenciaga, nylon python print satchel with bows by Prada and Manuale thin 46mm rose gold plated watch by GaGà Milano.

My Look: Dressing in Black and White

Sandra Bauknecht in black and white Saint Laurent

Dressing in black and white is something that can make you look effortlessly chic in a second if you bear in mind to avoid the obvious. A white top with a black skirt or trousers can be easily reminiscent of a work uniform. Get a little creative and go for a bold pattern as I did for this outfit or much easier simply turn the colour combination upside down.

My Look: Pretty Pastels

Sandra Bauknecht Pretty Pastels

This was my outfit that I wore to the fun lunch with Rodial and Marionnaud recently in Zurich. I love wearing pastel colours in summer and the combination of light green with soft yellow has been among my favorites this season. The new Noé BB bag by Louis Vuitton in the vibrant shade of citron just adds the right unexpected splash of colour.

My look: Contrast-collar cotton and wool-blend sweater icon(70% off) by Moschino Cheap and Chic, lace and chiffon skirt, shoes and Noé BB bag in citron, all by Louis Vuitton, studded handbag and sunglasses, both by Prada, fashion jewelry by Chloé.

While you are reading this, I am on my way to Iceland today. So stay tuned for some updates from Reykjavik!

This week, the limited Dior Summer Mix Edition 2013 will be hitting the shelves in Switzerland. It features four Diorblush Cheek Cremes, with a new creamy, mousse-like non greasy texture that blends easily. An absolutely amazing must-have beauty product for the summer season. Along with those four blushes come four nail polishes in hot, vibrant shades to mix and match. For me, it is all about the colour combination of coral and pink as you can see above.

Pink patent-leather ankle-cuff sandals, coral patent-leather envelope clutch, both by Gucci, Sunnies 448 nail polish and Bikini 871 blush cream, both by Dior.
