The Top 15 Runway Trends for F/W 2017

Here they are: the most important trends for the F/W 2017 season. Americana vibes, a powerful way to wear red, and vintage-inspired everything. Enjoy this comprehensive look at the pieces you’ll be wearing shortly. Deconstructed clothing is here to stay as well as florals and leisure suits. If you are looking at the new skirts, mid-length is the way to go.

I cannot wait for this beautiful season to arrive in stores.

My Look: Art in the Park

This year marks the 15th anniversary of ‘Art in the Park‘ at the Baur au Lac hotel and the tenth time it has been organised in collaboration with Galerie Gmurzynska. It is always a pleasure to visit the beautiful exhibition curated by Gigi Kracht. This year, some amazing artist were  present such as Spanish Surrealist Joan Miró with a “supporting cast“ – Mel Ramos, Rotraut, Allen Jones, Silvester Stallone, Sophia Vari, and Louise Nevelson.

Exhibition is open to the public till August 4th, 2017.

My Look: Masquerade Ball in Venice

Recently, I was invited to a beautiful masquerade ball in Venice to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of my friends, Kristina and Piero, at exactly the same location they had tied the knot a decade ago. The dresscode was black and red with headdress. Wearing a Venetian mask with feathers makes you feel truly mysterious. What a fantastic night, thank you!

My Look: Strolling Through Venice

Strolling through beautiful Venice, which is the most unique city in the world for me. Those little canals are so romantic and thanks to its many historical spots, this town is recognized for its cultural richness. Every corner offers a unique photo opportunity.

My look: Embroidered-cuff cold-shoulder top and asymmetric cotton-poplin skirticon, both by Peter Pilotto, printed leather, raffia and canvas wedge sandals by Valentino, Kan I Mini studded leather chain shoulder bag by Fendi and purple mirrored round sunglasses by Chanel.

And if you want to enjoy some amazing impressions of Venice, watch the movie «The Tourist» with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. A very good one!

My Look: Block Heels

Block heels are one of the best investments you can make this year if you want to stay on top of the fashion charts and comfy at the same time. I have been going crazy for those embellished ones teamed with this beautifully feminine blouse and skirt for instant style status.

The photos were taken at the Rote Fabrik in Zurich where Juergen Teller shot the S/S 2013 ad campaign for Marc by Marc Jacobs. A perfect match and a little trip down memory lane… !

My Look: Running in Heels

Gosh, I am so in love with these Balenciaga heels that I first presented you a few weeks ago, I could literally run around in them the whole day (when it is not raining… the satin fabric doesn’t like water at all). They are not only beautiful, but also really comfortable.

My Look: Ruffles

I told you already about my obsession with Ellery‘s playful to-die-for kick-flare trousers that billow out in a way that’s reminiscent of a mermaid tail. Now, you see me wearing them in combination with some more ruffles, a huge trend for S/S 2017.
