My Look: Rock the Rainbow

I am in love with Gucci‘s bold prints and kaleidoscopic color palettes. While a real rainbow is a rare shot of magic across the sky and we cannot rely on Swiss fall weather, I suggest letting our wardrobes lift our spirits. Vibrant stripes are a symbol of fun, luck and positivity and make every outfit pop.

My look: Planet hoodieicon, plissé-lurex midi skirticon, Peggy striped platform sneakersicon, GG Marmont matelassé shoulder bagicon, embellished oversized square-frame sunglassesicon, and earrings with pearls and tiger heads, all by Gucci.

Last week, I flew for two days to Hamburg as guest of Steinway & Sons. An amazing experience I will soon tell you more about. Here you see me leaving the Gastwerk hotel for the gala dinner on Tuesday night. I am wearing my new must-haves pieces by Gabriela Hearst (for a previous post click here please) along with an iconic trench coat embellished with a cartoon and doodle print from the house’s latest S/S 2018 runway collection. See now, buy now at its best!

My Look: Hublot Wiesn

This week, after my post about the amazing experience with Hublot at the Oktoberfest, I got many compliments about my Dirndl look. You might be surprised but this outfit doesn’t include one single traditional Bavarian piece, every item comes from a runway collection. Over the years, I have collected so many fashion must-haves, that I love to style in different and unexpected ways. As I always say, keep everything if you have space, there will always be a time to wear those pieces again…, I am sure that you will be surprised to see the years in which I bought them.

My look: Bavarian janker jacket (F/W 2002) and corset-style dress (F/W 2010), both by D&G Dolce Gabbana, embellished leather choker (F/W 2002) and brooch (F/W 2010), all by Dolce & Gabbana, feather apron (S/S 2005) and lace-up leather boots, both by Prada (F/W 2001), plissé leather cuffs (F/W 2016) by Gucci, small classic black handbag with gold-tone metal chain by Chanel (F/W 1995), Venezia lace stay-ups (F/W 2003) by Wolford.

My Look: Movie Night

Last week, I attended the opening night of the 13th Zurich Film Festival that opened with Danish director Janus Metz Pedersen’s tennis thriller BORG/MCENROE. Based on actual events, it tells the  story of the 1980s tennis rivalry between the placid Björn Borg and the volatile John McEnroe. The evening was a lot of fun with different events going on, from cocktail receptions to the screening, dinner and after party.

What do you wear on a cruise? Comfy swimwear and nice tunics are all you need. Enjoying the wind, the sun, the sea and visiting different spots each day.

My Look: Sneakers & Dresses

If you spent your childhood in a pair of Converse or even Nikes, you already know, the right sneakers can make a statement. If you pay attention to the proportions, dresses work well when paired with just the right comfy footwear. And not only will you earn major style points for thinking outside the box, but your feet will surely thank you. Here you see me wearing this kind of look on my way to the Maison Sisley in Paris.

My look: Olwen cutout printed cotton-jersey dressicon and Falabella faux brushed-leather shoulder bagicon, both by Stella McCartney, embellished metallic sneakers and aviator-style metal sunglasses, both by Gucci, earrings by Dior.
