My Look: Say It With Flowers

«After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world
– Christian Dior

Bouquets of flowers are always a special and thoughtful gift. Now you can take the message «Say it with Flowers» to the next level and wrap yourself in this beautiful dress which is patterned with coated red blooms and the iconic slogan. The print is inspired by flower wrappers you’d come across in your local bodega. Isn’t it so cute? Combined with some leopard heels which are trending this upcoming season it is the perfect way to transition into fall.

My look: Waiting For Godet belted coated cotton-blend poplin maxi dressicon by Rosie Assoulin, white Duffle 6 bag by Saint Laurent, leopard-print calf hair sandals by Miu Miu, bear necklace and banana leaf print sunglasses, both by Dolce & Gabbana, Tonda Métropolitaine watch by Parmigiani Fleurier and rose diamond ring by Piaget.

My Look: I Love the Stripe Hype

This summer I have been going bold. More specifically, I have been reaching for the brightest and the most eye-catching stripes I could find. The glamour and thrill of retro moment feels right again this season: let stripes meet their match with transparent pieces and punk details, and feel instantly more trendy. Moreover, nothing transcends seasons – or decades – more seamlessly than stripes.

My Look: Pineapple

Unless you have been living in a pineapple under the sea, you will have noticed that during the past seasons fruits in all sorts have become the newest fashion darlings. Now, it is up to you to choose which Vitamin C infusion you are gonna go for…

Nobody does floral femininity better than Dolce & Gabbana. My closet has been blooming with wildflowers since many seasons thanks to the Italian designer duo.

My Look: Zoofäscht 2018

Yesterday evening, I attended the Zoofäscht 2018 – one of the highlights of Zurich’s social calendar. The black tie event takes place every second year and collects money to support the Zurich Zoo. This time, CHF 500.000 were raised for the new «Lewa Savannah» that will host giraffes, zebras, rhinos and ostriches. After 60 years, the giraffes can finally return to Zurich.

My Look: Pool Float

The coolest accessory for this summer? This time, I’m not talking about my Côte d’Azur inspired bag and shoes… I’m talking about my new pool floats!

My Look: La Bomba

Jacquemus named his S/S 2018 collection La Bomba that was inspired by French island girls from Corsica, Martinique or from the Caribbean. My favorites on the runway were his oversized straw hats (for a previous post about this trend, click here please) that epitomize summer perfectly. Nothing adds more glamour to your beach look than a gigantic straw hat.
