Gucci or Mutti?

Browsing through Instagram, I saw a picture of my dear friend Yasmin von Schlieffen, that gave me a big smile and made my day. On the photo, the Hamburg based owner of the PR agency «Mrs Politely» and mother of three boys wore a T-shirt reminiscent of the GUCCI TEEicon everyone is craving at the moment but instead of the iconic label it said MUTTI. (For my readers who don’t understand German, this is a word for mummy that you would use for an old-fashioned mum but in a kind of cute way – still my daughter is not allowed to use it and the same goes for me with my mum. If I called her Mutti, she would be freaking out. We call our German chancellor Angela Merkel «Mutti», I think now you finally got what I mean).

This T-shirt is a must for me. It is available at shop-hellolove.de (E-mail: contact@shop-hellolove.de, Phone: +49 40 33450933, Address: Eppendorfer Weg 283
20251 Hamburg/Germany).

Yasmin’s look: «Mutti» Tee by Hello Love, jeans by Zara, pearl necklace by Gabriele Frantzen, shopper by ChanelY charm by Iphoria and Princetown embroidered slipper by Gucci. Let’s admit completely without Gucci is difficult these days :-).

To all the Muttis out there, have a lovely day!

Silk Robe Coats Are the Way to Go

Looking for a stylish summer cover-up? Silk robe coats are the way to go, like a fashionable dream come true. Being both, extremely stylish and comfortable, they are perfect for this seemingly effortless genuine look. My favorite combination? Wearing it with a simple tank and my favorite jeans. This street-style approved trick often comes with billowing toppers that are inspired by traditional Japanese kimonos as seen on Attico designer, Giorgia Tordini, who proves that a silk bathrobe is best worn out of bed.

Get the look: Liza Var embroidered printed silk-satin wrap robe and Rosa high-rise flared jeansicon, both by Attico, Biggins matte-satin camisole by The Rowicon, Cabana studded leather tote by Valentino and Portofino suede sandals by Gianvito Rossi.


iconTo keep it from skewing too boudoir, simply opt for a version with a bit more heft and wear it open, loosely cinched at the waist or with a leather belt. So before you reach for that bomber, biker or cargo jacket, consider the silk robe coats below.

5 Mulberry silk robe by Burberry (30% off on sale)
6 Capability silk robe by Olivia von Halle (30% off on sale)
7 One of a kind silk kimonoicon by Rianna + Nina

The whole wearing pajamas as real-life, out-of-bed-clothes thing has been having an intense moment over the last couple of months, maybe for obvious reasons: when a trend prioritizes comfort and ease, it’s easy to get behind. And gentlemen you are in it, too! Jared Leto proves how gorgeous he looks in this embroidered patchwork reversible coat by Gucci.

Happy Shopping!

Celebrity Style: Elle Macpherson

Elle Macpherson Celebrity Style in Stella McCartney

At the age of 50, Elle Macpherson looks radiant and still has the perfect physique that gave her the nickname “The Body” in the ’80s. Personally speaking, I think she is one of the most beautiful women on earth. Last Wednesday, the Australian supermodel sported a great look as she turned up at the Hollywood studios for an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last Wednesday. Jumpsuits are extremely up to date this season and Elle shows how this trend works the best.

My Look: Falling for Color

Sandra Bauknecht - Falling for Colour

Some of you might remember this dress as I wore it to the MCM store opening in Zurich last May. It has been one of my favourite looks this summer and I loved changing the accessories for it. When I wore it during New York Fashion Week to the Ralph Lauren Collection S/S 2014 show, it created a huge buzz among the street style photographers as you can see below and even Stefano Gabbana in person twittered and liked it on Instagram. What an honor for a Dolce & Gabbana lover like me!

My look: Printed crepe dressicon by Dolce & Gabbana, green suede sandals and Rasoir sunglasses by Miu Miu, Bamboo leather shopper tote iconby Gucci, Hapi leather bracelet by Hermès, Atlas silver bangles by Tiffany & Co., Limelight Gala watch and rose diamond ring, both by Piaget.

Street Style Paris: Natasha Zinko

Natasha_Zinko

After the Louis Vuitton S/S 2013 show during Paris Fashion Week, I spotted Natasha Zinko, a London-based designer of Russian origin that graduated with a BA Honours recognition for Jewelry Design at Central St Martins. She opened her first store this year in the heart of London’s Mayfair district at 46 Maddox Street.

Sceleton_Earrings_Natasha_Zinko

Her jewelry creations, like these skeleton earrings, are bold and very fashion forward. She also designs a ready-to-wear line called Abrakadabra. Of course, she caught my eye immediately because of her stunning Mary Katrantzou dress. Her friend wore head-to-toe Prada from the F/W 2012 collection. If you are interested in my look, click here for the previous post.

Madly Kenzo

Street Style Trend Kenzo

 

Now that unavoidable street style It-label is Kenzo. The brand has been around forever, but had disappeared off the fashion radar for quite some time. A subsidiary of LVMH, Kenzo has come back on the map this season with unconventional designs and prints, loved by the younger, hip fashion crowd. Launched in 1970 by Kenzo Takada and now under the creative direction of Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the Paris-based brand is your ticket to globe-trotting style.

Kenzo

Inspired by the label’s eclectic archives, the designer duo has charged the look with a covetably youthful vibrancy. Congrats to Kenzo’s very loud roar! Those popular lion-faced, Eiffel Tower, and logo sweatshirts are truly divine.

Kenzo Street Style 2

Kenzo is available at Net-à-porter, Farfetch,Mytheresa and Luisaviaroma.

120085-Madly 230x300 ANG

Another way to experience the Kenzo spirit is the house’s newest fragrance Madly Kenzo Eau de Toilette, a lighter, more carefree version of the spirited Madly Eau de Parfum scent that was launched last year.

Floral Woody Musk

Top notes: Pear and litchi.
Middle notes: Jasmine and heliotrope.
Base notes: Musk and cedar.

Available in 30ml, 50ml and 80ml.

Paris Fashion Week Style: Anna

Anna_PFW

Yesterday before the Valentino S/S 2013 show, I spotted Anna dello Russo in this opulent look which I have liked a lot. This black mesh dress was undoubtedly Dolce & Gabbana’s F/W 2012 collection’s hero piece, with hand-embellished gold discs, freshwater-inspired faux pearls and breathtakingly intricate beads paying tribute to homespun Italian artistry. Crafted with a shape-cinching built-in body and a skirt that flares as soon as it hits the hips, this structured style will sculpt the label’s beloved hourglass silhouette. To shop her outfit, please click on the highlighted product descriptions below.

Embellished mesh dressmini shoulder bag and embroidered Mary Jane pumps, all by Dolce & Gabbana.

And if you were asking yourself, why Anna didn’t close her dress properly. It is a showroom piece and therefore it didn’t fit her perfectly. But nevertheless, she looked awesome in it.

Spotted on the streets of Zurich: Isabelle, bringing the print pants trend to perfection. Colourful, stylish with a vibrant mix of patterns.

Isabelle’s look: Blue sweater and silk print pants, both by DKNY, dark blue classic single breasted blazer iconby By Malene BirgerRollergirl tartan canvas loafers iconby Christian Louboutin, lace socks by Fogal, bangles by Hermès and watch “Rolex Explorer II” by Rolex (officially known as “McQueen Rolex”). She bought the amazing neon-green wayfarer sunglasses at a beach shop in Cannes and the green python bag is a souvenir from her last trip to Asia.

You might assume that this stylish woman works in fashion but think again. Isabelle is a professor working in the division of thoracic surgery. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
