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: Embroidered paneled linen maxi dress by Delpozo, ruffled woven hemp sunhat by Rosie Assoulin, Kan I leather shoulder bag,  flower fur key fobicon, ABClick letter key charm and embellished leather bag strap, all by Fendi and leather T-strap sandals with pearls by Gucci, asymmetric earrings by Dior and bangles by Chanel.

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!

In Love with the Fendi S/S 2017 Collection

«Techno Rococo – Airy Spring Confections from Fendi», that was the title for the brand’s S/S 2017 show. When a collection is designed by Karl Lagerfeld, you can always count on perfection. For the Italian house, he mixed references of the 18th century with athletic details that would not only appeal directly to very cool Japanese girls but to every fashion lover around the globe.

Just have a look at this hybrid of boots and socks that is so stunning for me. Moreover, the bags are also too die for. Laced, embellished, flower embroidery, heavily accessorized, everything is intensely, gloriously spring-like that screams MUST-HAVE!

Here are my favorites:

Floral-embroidered striped-heel sock boots

Kan I striped-leather shoulder bag, Strap You circle-appliqué bag strap iconand Witches fur bag charm

Stretch-knit ankle boots

Isn’t one more beautiful than the other? I am so in love with these pieces…

Alina Levshin in Fendi at the Berlinale

Alina_Levshin_Fendi_Jimmy_Choo

On Thursday night, the 67th Berlinale International Film Festival officially started in Berlin, Germany. For the ‘Django‘ premiere at Berlinale Palace, German actress Alina Levshin showed up in one of my favorite Resort 2017 dresses by Fendi. Probably not my favorite look for the red carpet, but I am absolutely in love with this piece. Can you picture it with cute little beach sandals and no tights… it is divine!

Get her look: Off-the-shoulder bow-embellished striped cotton-poplin mini dress by Fendi,
iconCeleste embellished suede clutch and Rosa 100 satin pumps with clip-on fur pompoms, both by Jimmy Choo.
