My Look: Burgundy & Blue

The last three days I spent in Milan on a business trip and this is one of the outfits I wore (the photos were taken before at Lake Zurich). I just adore the color combination of burgundy and blue. It looks chic and sophisticated. The baker boy cap adds a fun twist to the look.

My Look: Union Jack Style

In the ’90s, John Galliano gave the famous Union Jack a high fashion rehabilitation and in the beginning of the century, Vivienne Westwood’s interpretation of the red, white and blue became an icon for post-punk British creativity. The Union Jack of today has shed its skin of sneery Cool Britannia rebelliousness. Now, Gucci‘s Alessandro Michele shows us that it is all about flying the flag, just not as we know it.

My Look: The Sequined Jumpsuit

It is a well established fact that ladies love a jumpsuit. They are more unexpected than a dress. In terms of dressing jumpsuits simplify your life. You can sit, dance and focus on the accessories. I have to admit that there is a bathroom issue but to me, jumpsuits are the ultimate uniform for the modern woman and an investment piece worthy of topping your shopping list.

Here you see me wearing a sequined one by Temperley London for the closing night of the Zurich Film Festival as guest of Etihad. The British designer does amazing jumpsuits. So I dare you to give them a try—I promise you won’t regret it!

My Look: An Ice Bear in Milan

Hello from beautiful sunny Milan. Here you see me in front of the iconic Duomo (Cathedral of Milan) which is is the largest and most complex Gothic building in Italy. But who would have thought that this embroidered skirt with the cute ice bear would also be the perfect look last night? Surprisingly it was as Moncler had transformed the Via Montenapoleone in a snowy landscape for the opening celebration of their newly renovated store. Most of the street was cordoned off and covered in white, as a multitude of snowflakes fell continuously from the building, landing on the heads and coats of the invited guests (see photo at the end).

My look: Ruffle-trimmed cotton-blend cady jacketicon, ruffled-hem silk and wool-blend skirt, ruffled-neck chiffon blouseQueercore embellished leather ankle boots, GG Marmont matelassé shoulder bagicon and oversized round-frame actate sunglasses, all by Gucci.

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: Boum-Boum au Lac


Saturday one week ago, there was Street Parade in Zurich. It is the most attended technoparade in Europe, since the end of Love Parade in 2010. I prefer leaving the streets to the ravers as I find it too crowded but I still enjoy the music very much. Therefore personally speaking the place to be is the Boum-Boum au Lac party in the exclusive garden of the Hotel Baur au Lac.

My look: Giselle bandage halterneck jumpsuit by Hervé Légericon, rock leather bracelet by Miu Miustudded leather braceletCandy suede platform sandals and metallic patchwork camera bag, all by Saint Laurenticon, «Blow in Case of Fashion Emergency» necklace by ChanelHorsebit blue topaz diamond white gold ringicon by Gucci Fine JewelleryTonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier and Linda sunglasses by Tom Ford.

Tonight will be the Rive Gauche Party at the Baur au Lac garden, so stay tuned. More will be coming up shortly from this hot spot.
