Your new must-have eyewear: the «DiorUmbrage» sunglasses from the F/W 2016 catwalk show feature distinctive, innovative mirror lenses with a foliage motif. Developed exclusively for Dior, they demonstrate cutting-edge craftsmanship. The retro-futuristic round front is a juxtaposition of Havana acetate, while the metal temples are adorned with sophisticated details.
The purple mirrored lenses with a foliage motif ensure 100% UV protection.
The color palette includes the following magnetic nuances:
Frame in dark and light havana acetate, rose gold metal temples, pink foliage mirrored lenses
Frame in turquoise and pink havana acetate, gold metal temples, violet foliage mirrored lenses
Frame in blue and turquoise havana acetate, silver metal temples, green foliage mirrored lenses
Frame in blue and light havana acetate, rose gold metal temples, blue lenses
Frame in black and light havana acetate, gun metal temples, grey lenses
I love the ones with the colorful foliage mirrored lenses. But which one should I get, pink, purple or green? E-mail me please which ones you prefer…

During the Zurich Film Festival, one of the biggest highlights is the exclusive dinner hosted by Tommy Hilfiger. Last year, the American designer himself welcomed the guests at Razzia restaurant and thanked his long-time CEO Daniel Grieder on stage. Later, stars such as Johannes Huebl, Moritz Bleibtreu, and Elisa Sednaoui listened to the private concert by Marlon Roudette.
Playsuits and over-the-knee boots are definitely no longer for fashion victims only, they have become a must this season.
My look: Silk-chiffon playsuit by Emilio Pucci, bi-colour Sac De Jour nano leather tote by Saint Laurent, suede over-the-knee boots by Dior, earrings by Chanel, Diorette ring by Dior Haute Joaillerie, bar cuff in rose gold by Balenciaga and Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis .
Stay tuned… tonight it is time for the Tommy Hilfiger dinner again.
With lovely Silvia Binggeli, Editor-in-Chief of Annabelle.

“Nature is so beautiful that adding to it serves no purpose.” – Robert Dallet (1923 – 2006)
Every year, Hermès picks a theme for the respective year, which is highlighted through their collections and store windows. In 2016, the French Maison is honoring its love for nature with «Nature at Full Gallop».
Last week, I was invited to an intimate dinner by the House at the Museum Rietberg in Zurich to celebrate this beautiful inspiration. The location was amazing, decorated like a jungle. The dinner was served on the «Carnets d’Equateur» porcelain which I showed you in a previous post and that pictures wild creatures such as the jaguar, lion, tiger, elephant and toucan alongside the rare, the manama, capuchin and wooly monkeys.
The design was created by late animal artist Robert Dallet and is a voyage to the core of creation. I find it extremely beautiful.
My look that night: Margot bonded stretch-crepe dress by Roksanda, So Black Kelly bag and silk scarf, both by Hermès, Songe pumps in cracked leather by Dior, Horsebit blue topaz diamond white gold ring by Gucci Fine Jewellery, Tonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier and crystal-embellished clip-on earrings by Miu Miu.
My avid reader might recognize the dress as I wore it already 4 years ago (for the previous post, click here please). It got relaunched this season because of the hype Melania Trump caused wearing it in white for her speech to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.
Absolutely trending this F/W 2016 season: wrapping a silk scarf around the handle.
