My Look: Pucci at the Pool

Still looking for some glamorous daytime beachwearEmilio Pucci’s instantly recognisable kaleidoscopic designs have always been favoured by those in the know, and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon, making any Pucci printed piece an intelligent buy – whether it’s one of the brand’s iconic bikinis or a chic cover-up. For me, it truly is the ultimate luxe swimwear brand.

My look: Fiore Maya asymmetric printed silk-chiffon dressicon, Fiore Maya printed triangle bikini and Fiore Maya printed cotton-gauze pareoicon, all by Emilio Pucci, Candy metallic elaphe platform sandalsicon by Saint Laurent, embroidered brocade drawstring backpack by Gucci, woven straw visor by Stella McCartneyAudrey wayfarer sunglasses by Céline and pearl necklace by Chanel.

My Look: St. Barths

Sandra_Bauknecht_St-Barths_Emilio_pucci

Today’s post is dedicated to one of my favorite Caribbean islands: St. Barths. It offers everything, from peaceful moments to glamorous times,from fantastic restaurants to great beaches and amazing water. Not to forget the landing. Arriving on the island in one of those small planes is truly legendary as Gustaf III airport on St. Barths is one of the most dangerous airports in the world.

Here you see me leaving from my boutique hotel, the Manapany (Uma Thurman stayed there at the same time), to the Cheval Blanc (which is owned by the LVMH group) for lunch.

My look: Colourful bikiniicon, matching pareoicon and clutch, all by Emilio Pucci, suede and wooden clogs by Miu Miu, cuff by Stella McCartney, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellerypearl embellished sunglassesnecklace and earrings, both by Chanel.
