On Saturday evening, I attended the Zoofäscht 2014 one of the highlights of Zurich’s social calendar. The black tie event takes place every second year and collects money to support the Zurich Zoo. This time, CHF 850.000 were collected for the new Yak-enclosure.

Chanel Etats Poétiques Makeup Collection

Chanel-Etats Poetiques

This fall, CHANEL launches its new poetic makeup collection ÉTATS POÉTIQUES inspired by passion and emotion with the main focus on eyes.

Eyeshadow aficionados should be all over it – along with a neutral shadow quad, the new releases include six shades of Ombre Essentielle singles. A redesigned eyeliner pen defines a tone of mystery with a sleek felt tip for ultimate precision.

It is an intriguing game of opposites: innocent and stormy, soft and intense. A spectrum of pink shades, a poetic tenderness, balanced with tones of purple, radiant yellow and dramatic grey.

Art of poetry that we love… here is the complete collection:

Must-Have F/W 2014: Arm Candy

Fun It-Bag-FW2014

Add a pop of color and excitement to your evening looks with those fun clutch bags. Fall’s juiciest arm candies are bright and ladylike. Either you go for Anya Hindmarch’s bold graphics of household brands (1 and 4) or choose Charlotte Olympia’s playful peach clutch (2) that is covered in suede perfectly mimicking the fuzzy texture of the fruit. I personally adore REDValentino’s combination of fairy tales and fashion (6). All interiors offer enough space for your party essentials.

My Look: Berlin East Side Gallery

Berlin Wall -Sandra Bauknecht -July 2014

Today’s photos were taken at the East Side Gallery in Berlin, Germany. The probably largest and longest-lasting open air gallery in the world is actually an international memorial for freedom. With 1.3 km, it is the longest remaining part of the Berlin Wall, located near the city centre on Muehlenstraße in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, next to the river Spree.

The East Side Gallery consists of 105 paintings by artists from all over the world, painted in 1990 on the east side of the Berlin Wall.

Inspired by yesterday’s post about Rihanna who’s sporting the military trend for our September 2014 cover of L’OFFICIEL Schweiz/Suisse, here is a gun salute to the revival of military chic fashion this fall. Therefore I went through my closet to look for my S/S 2010 Balmain pieces - the season when it had been up-to-date the last time.

My look: Military shirt and khaki tank top, both by Balmain (from the S/S 2010 collection, for the new F/W 2014 pieces, please click HERE), pants by Alexander McQueen (similar ones HERE), sneakers by Prada Sport, Hapi leather bracelet by Hermès, Limelight Gala watch and rose diamond ring by Piaget, sunglasses by Valentino and Boy Bag with chains by Chanel.

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Missoni Chill

After my summer holidays in Ibiza, I came back completely chilled and relaxed. But as usual you have to run some errands due to an empty fridge. Here you see me at Sihlcity in Zurich. Comfortable, with the ease of a never-ending beach time, this jumpsuit is not only perfect for vacations in hot climates, but also for a stroll through the city.

My look: Diamantino Rilievo crochet-knit jumpsuit iconby MissoniAlice leather sandals with pearls by Saint Laurent, blue suede fringe shoulder bag iconby Gucci, Rome Sports chronograph in turquoise by Jacques LemansDouble C diamond black lacquer white gold ring by Cartier and diamond bracelet by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2015

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2015

I was still in Shanghai for Omega’s amazing event with George Clooney (post coming up soon) when in Monaco around 300 fashionable people moved their way up the steep, winding streets of the city to enter the transparent tent with custom-made Pierre Paulin seats in the Place du Palais to attend Nicolas Ghesquière’s second show for Louis Vuitton: his Cruise 2015 presentation.

489703641CS00017_Louis_VuitCEO of Louis Vuitton Michael Burke, Delphine Arnault, fashion designer Nicolas Ghesquière, Princess Charlène of Monaco and Prince Albert II of Monaco

On the runway appeared beautifully embellished but still very wearable pieces, mismatched prints, embroidered lace with tiny seed beads, and a very well played game of colors that established Ghesquière’s very own key LV codes that he had started back in March during his F/W 2014 show.

The French powerhouse is always about accessories and those spiky silver belts, gladiator boots and the new, wide-opened bucket bag will surely find their fans all over the world.

I attached you my favorite looks herewith!
