My look: Fox fur cape by Givenchy, wool and silk dress by Valentino, embellished satin pumps by Miu Miu, cat eye metal mirrored sunglasses by Fendiflower resin necklace by Guccivelvet Boy Bag in burgundy by Chanel.

My Look: Boom

Boom, it is already Mid February, I find it quite scary how time flies but on the other side I cannot wait for spring to arrive. I am definitely not a winter person. Once the sun is out, I always feel like wearing something floral.

My look: Double-breasted wool-blend felt coaticon, pussy-bow glittered floral-print crepe dress andicon star-appliquéd leather ankle boots, all by Saint LaurentJoyce embellished leather shoulder bag by Loeweearringsicon and necklace with velvet ribbon, both by Dolce & Gabbana, «Diorette» ring by Dior Haute Joaillerie.

My Look: Le Toiny

This year, I am bombarding you with sunny looks as I cannot wait for summer to arrive. Here you see me on my favorite island St. Barths just recently. I had lunch at one of my beloved spots, Le Toiny. Feet in the sand, great food, super service and you can chill at the beach later. My love for this Caribbean island won’t stop as I will be revealing a very special collaboration soon…

My look: Tiered lace maxi dress by Stella McCartney, embellished textured-leather sandalsicon by Valentino, patchwork clutch by Prada, Eva aviator-style rose gold-tone sunglasses by Tom Ford, pendant necklace by Roberto Cavalli and pearl bracelet by Chanel.

My Look: Smile

Sandra_Bauknecht_Smile_PradaOne of my favorite quotes says «a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear». I think it is so true. You can wear the most amazing clothes but with no positive attitude, they will look only half as beautiful. Here you see me having a lot of fun shooting the social media campaign for Montblanc‘s «Urban Spirit» line.

My look: Dark blue lace dress, studded bag, velvet mohawk pumps, thin black and gold belt, matching choker (all from previous collections) and new lace-up denim bustier belticon, all by Prada, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

And smile, it is Valentine’s Day – time to get spoiled!

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Let’s Go Bananas!

LetsGoBananas_Sandra_Bauknecht_DolceGabbana

This year I decided to go a little bananas for my birthday with those cute fruit embellishments at my shoes. Together with the palm print, I blended in perfectly with the tropical Caribbean background.

My look: White crepe topicon by Balenciaga, palm printed trousers and banana and palm embroidered sandalsicon, both by Dolce & GabbanaMonogram fringed shoulder bag by Saint Laurent, necklace and bangles, both by Chanel.

My Look: Formal Jumpsuit

Sandra_Bauknecht_Bethany_Jumpsuit_Herve_leger_COver

Do you want to know why I love jumpsuits? It is because I can dance in them and that is my favorite part of every party! If I see a dance floor, I need to be on it!

I wore this amazing embellished piece to New Year’s Eve in St. Barths and last week to IWC’s gala «Decoding the Beauty of Time» during SIHH 2017 in Geneva. I combined the look with different accessories for each occasion.

My look on New Year’s Eve in St. Barths: Bethany sequin-embellished cutout bandage jumpsuit by Hervé LégerMonogramme glittered canvas shoulder bag and cutout leather platform pumps, both by Saint Laurent, cuff and choker with evil eye symbol, both by Chanel, Tonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier.

My Look: St. Barts

Sandra_Bauknecht_St_Barts_Johanna_Ortiz_Net_a-Porter

Discovering new designers has always been a passion of me and one that I truly adore at the moment is Columbian designer Johanna Ortiz.

Being on everyone’s radar, she was inspired this season by the essence of the French-influenced Caribbean island of St. Barts and I thought it couldn’t be a better match to wear this beautiful cotton top with its voluminous sleeves and V-neck cut exactly there.

My look: St. Barts cotton-poplin peplum top by Johanna Ortizcropped high-rise wide-leg jeans by Stella McCartneyJordaan horsebit-detailed jacquard loafers and Sylvie mini buckle leather shoulder bag, both by Gucci, wide cuff by Chanel, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery, earrings by Cartier and rose diamond necklace by Piaget.

My Look: Gstaading

sandra_bauknechr_gstaading

This was my outfit that I wore to the fondue lunch at Wasserngrat during the ASW Winter Weekend in Gstaad in December. Switzerland is such a beautiful country and being in the mountains always makes me happy.

My look: Ski jumpsuit with leather belt and fur snow boots, both by Prada Sport, slub cotton topicon by James Perse, zipped cardigan with fur details, Linea G 2 leather-trimmed canvas shoulder bagicon, GG pattern jacquard stole and rabbit-felt fedora, all by Gucci, diamond earrings by Cartier and mirrored sunglasses by Chanel.
