Most Important S/S 2017 Accessories Trends

Accessories_Trends_SS2017

Nothing has changed since last winter… more is more is still the motto, this is what the S/S 2017 season is all about! With fashion in a maximalist mood, accessories have kept their center stage. On the runways, kitten heels are back, earrings were bigger than ever, and one bag is definitely not enough. New? The marriage of socks and boots. The forecast: Get ready for your another sumptuous season!

The grocery store isn’t the only place you’ll be seeing pineapples this spring. The designers have discovered that pineapples are not just a yummy fruit but can also add an interesting element to this season’s fashion looks.

I am currently obsessing over Dolce & Gabbana‘s take on the tropical fruit.
Get the look: Pineapple-print ruffled cotton-poplin dressSicily medium pineapple-print leather tote, pineapple earrings and Keira sandals with pineapple heels, all by Dolce & Gabbana.

My Look: Relax

sandra_bauknecht_bad_ragaz_chloe_kenzo_gucci

While you are reading this, I am on my way to NYC again for the launch party of Kenzo x H&M. October has been a crazy travel month so far and fighting jet lag takes a lot of discipline. Therefore I was extremely happy to spend the weekend at the Grand Resort Bag Ragaz where I could just relax and chill. I truly need this «time off» in between those crazy weeks. Here you see me in the park of the hotel on Sunday enjoying the beautiful autumn sun and being already in a «Kenzo» mood.

My look: Chunky striped mohair wool coat and matching hat, both by Chloéprinted cotton-jersey T-shirt and printed cotton-jersey track pants, both by KenzoAce embroidered low-top leather trainers and Dionysus medium embellished coated canvas shoulder bag, both by Gucci, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery, «So Real» sunglasses by Dior and Tonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier.
