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!

LoL, Sandra

The last days in NYC as the new digital influencer for Estée Lauder were absolutely amazing. I had many interesting meetings and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. Here you see me at a private home at the Upper East Side with the most spectacular view over the city and Central Park. Needless to say, the perfect backdrop to take some photos of my outfit that was daring and conservative at once, a twist that I love.

Diorumbrage

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.

My Look: Not for Fashion Victims Only

sandra_bauknecht_tommy_hilfiger_dinner_2015

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 Joailleriebar cuff in rose goldicon by Balenciaga and Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis .

Stay tuned… tonight it is time for the Tommy Hilfiger dinner again.

My Look: Dinner with Hermès

sandra_bauknecht_dinner_with_hermes_roksanda_dior

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».

hermes_dinner_rietberg_museum

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.

hermes_dinner_china

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 RoksandaSo Black Kelly bag and silk scarf, both by Hermès, Songe pumps in cracked leather by DiorHorsebit blue topaz diamond white gold ringicon by Gucci Fine JewelleryTonda 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.
