This beautiful chess seticon by Lanvin will provide endless entertainment and also serves as a unique display piece for the home. The wooden figures have been skilfully carved into some of the characters from former Creative Director Alber Elbaz‘s illustrations and painted with clothing inspired by the house’s ready-to-wear collections.

It will make the perfect gift for lovers of the brand as well as the game. A great way of getting a last piece by the wonderful Alber Elbaz who left the company after a dispute regarding the House’s strategy.

My Look: The Roaring Twenties

Sandra_Bauknecht_Roaring_Twenties_Cover

Last week, I had a little fashion challenge as I got a last minute invite to a «Roaring Twenties» party. Thank God, Sandra’s Closet is full of little treasures that I have collected over many years… here is what I came up with. 1920s fashion is considered one of the most glamorous decades in fashion history. It was all about short flapper dresses in loose fitting that allowed women to literally kick up their t-bar shoes in new dances like the Charleston. The hair was worn shorter. One of the first trendsetter of this style was Coco Chanel.

My look: Gold fringed flapper dress by Bottega Veneta (Runway F/W 2007), feather stole, satin evening bag with fake fur trim, choker and earrings, all by Dior, long pearl and feather necklace
by Lanvin, t-bar shoes by Yves Saint Laurent, head piece with rhinestones by Sonia Rykiel,
icon diamond ring and bracelet by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

Wishlist Wednesday: Blue

Blue

Dive into blue! Just in time for spring, many designers looked to the water and sky for inspiration. Especially royal blue with its refined elegance translates easy into the new season. I am in love with jumpsuits that are absolutely trending at the moment. Head to toe in this sophisticated shade is truly an eye-catcher.

Get the look: Carrie cape-effect silk-chiffon and stretch-crepe jumpsuit by Haney, Vivi embellished lizard-effect leather shoulder bag by Sophia Webster, Wild Thing fringed suede sandals by Aquazzura and pompom-embellished woven straw sunhat by Yosuzi.

Below you can find some more inspirations of the S/S 2016 runways …
… enjoy the rest of your week! Kisses from NYC!

My Look: Emerald Queen

Sandra_Bauknecht_Attends_Muzo_Cocktail_Party_Baselworld_2016

During Baselworld, I attended a very special cocktail party at the Kunsthalle in Basel hosted by MUZO. Last December, I had been to Colombia to visit their emerald mines which was an unforgettable experience. I will show you all my memories soon. The way inside to the event was constructed like a jungle and of course to honor the precious stones, I wore emerald.

My look: Satin wrap-front dress iconby Lanvin, metallic and matte-leather pumps iconby Saint Laurent, python bag with embellishments by Pradacrystal-embellished flower and key necklaceicon and matching earrings, both by Dolce & Gabbana and Horsebit blue topaz diamond white gold ringicon by Gucci Fine Jewellery.
