Everybody Needs a Fan

Those stylish GUCCI paper fans will make your summer days so much cooler. Comprised of paper and a wooden handle, the designs by Alessandro Michele derive inspiration from Japan. Too cool!

As if Beyoncé didn’t have enough fans :-)… she was spotted at a basketball game in New Orleans in a dramatic floor-length Gucci fur-trimmed kimono and a paper fan.

My Look: Greenery

Greenery is the Pantone Color of the Year 2017, a fresh and vibrant yellow-green shade that is considered as nature’s neutral evoking the first days of spring. For me, it is  full of hope and energy and I like it the playful Gucci way.

My look: Ruffle trimmed single breasted wool coat, crêpe-jersey and georgette dressembroidered leather knee boots and Dionysus embroidered leather hobo bag, all by Gucci. Ring «Diorette» and matching earrings, both by Dior Haute Joaillerie, Limelight Gala watch by Piaget.

My Look: Swan Lady

Snow in April in Switzerland, really? So back to sweater weather. I love playful animal prints and Stella McCartney‘s swan motif has been one of my favorites lately. In combination with a great pair of wide pants, it looks sophisticated and not too girly at all.

My Look: Tennis for a Good Cause

This Monday, I had the great honor as guest of Lindt to watch two world-class tennis players, Andy Murray and Roger Federer, competing against each other in the charity Match for Africa 3 at the Hallenstadion in Zurich, raising CHF 1.4 million for the Roger Federer Foundation.

Roger Federer with me before the match last Monday.

I believe in the power of people. We know that a good education is a decisive factor to empower children by allowing them to take their future into their own hands,” said Roger Federer, who will play a fourth Match for Africa against John Isner on April 29 in Seattle, WA. “With my foundation, we want to provide one million children with the opportunity for a quality education by the end of 2018.”

Donations can be made online at match-for-africa.com.

My tennis-inspired look: Twill bomber jacketicon, matching jersey-trimmed pleated twill mini dress and silk twill scarf with pendant, all by Gucci, suede overknee boots by Roberto Cavalli, Betty Medium Chain leather shoulder bagicon by Saint Laurent and mirrored sunglasses by Chanel.

My Look: Blind for Love

When it comes to fashion, I am a Gucci lover at the moment! I absolutely adore the vibrant embellishments and playful juxtapositions. Blind for love – all said!

My Look: One-Shoulder Dress

I always like to explore new designers. One that has caught my eye is Esteban Cortazar who is inspired by his formative years in Miami’s South Beach in the ‘90s, as well as his time working alongside couture seamstresses as Emanuel Ungaro’s Creative Director. “It is a very personal vision; one that empowers women by making them feel beautiful,” he says of his collections.

My look: Asymmetric one-shoulder ribbed stretch-knit dress and ruffled cotton-trimmed ribbed stretch-knit leggings, both by Esteban Cortazar, Elephant striped leather shoulder bag by Loewe, goat hair-trimmed leather pumps by Guccismiley emoji black pearl crystal long necklace, carved pearls necklace and wide cuff, all by Chanel.

My Look: Hello from Lugano

Hello from Lugano that is one of the most beautiful cities in Switzerland for me. Ticino’s lush, mountain-rimmed lake isn’t its only worth visiting asset. Walking along the flowery promenade on a sunny day is absolutely stunning and the perfect backdrop for a wonderful meeting. Here you can feel how close Italy is…

My Look: Seeing Things Clearly

Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly. When you go on an important date, I always recommend to try your outfit beforehand and then consult your pillow. The next morning, you will know if you feel secure about it or not. What you wear could discern how confident you feel about yourself. Don’t underestimate the power of an outfit! For this look, I decided last minute to add the denim shirt which gave the floral dress an unexpected twist.
