S/S 2017: New Chic in Pink

New_Chic_in_pink

Think pink, the S/S 2017 catwalks defiantly dictated fuchsia hues. The look? Nothing for sweet sugar princesses, pink has grown up and looks super cool on cape/dress hybrids, tight at the neck to elegant effect, as seen at Valentino or at Balenciaga where it was paired with purple spandex shoe-pants. I like those dresses together with Miu Miu‘s runway heels. Do you dare?

My Look: Barbie Girl

Cover-Sandra Bauknecht in Moschino Barbie Style

Here is my Moschino look that I wore to the Alexander Wang x H&M launch event in NYC. “Barbie is so joyful – and I wanted to bring some joy and fun into fashion,” said Jeremy Scott of the inspiration behind his S/S 2015 collection for the Italian house that has been available right after the runway show to the customers. Needless to say, being a huge fan of Barbie, I had to shop those pieces first hand. Please don’t take this post too seriously, as Jeremy said it is all about having fun and that means sometimes being a little cheesy and tacky.

My look: Logo intarsia cropped sweatermatching cotton mini skirt and leather jacket shoulder bag, all by MoschinoJanis embellished suede ankle boots by Saint Laurent, earrings by Prada, diamond ring and diamond bracelet, both by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

My Look: Happy

Sandra Bauknecht - Jason Wu - My Look - Happy

On Wednesday, I had a busy afternoon. First I went to Marionnaud‘s press conference to explore the house’s newest beauty brand BE CREATIVE MAKEUP, followed by a fashion show with Montblanc for the 6th edition of MODE SUISSE inside Zurich’s Lichthof.

This week has been perfect, many amazing things have happened and I am extremely happy. That might have been the reason for the pink splash of color I added to this elegant outfit giving it a joyful and fresh upgrade. And as you see, I had quite some fun taking those pictures.

Montblanc, Sandra Berry and a Surprise

Sandra_Berry_Montblanc-Los_Angeles

While you are reading this post, I am on my way to Los Angeles to live the ultimate Oscar experience with Montblanc. Stay tuned for many upcoming posts from my favourite city in the world. In the meantime, you can enjoy those exclusive behind the scenes photos of how my Montblanc Limited Edition Bespoke Ink SANDRA BERRY was born.

It all started with a trip to the headquarters in Hamburg… do you remember?

Montblanc_Sandra_Berry_Colour

After the concept of “Sandra Berry” had been visualized in spring 2012, I had many sleepless nights, dreaming about the color for my personalized ink. Funnily enough, I mixed tons of nail polishes together to come up with that one hue I was thinking of. In Hamburg, the lovely and extremely professional Montblanc team helped me to finalize the perfect shade.

A few weeks later, I received the bottles with three slightly different colors. Now, it was up to me to choose. Sample number 3 became SANDRA BERRY.

The next step was the design of the bottle. In Zurich, I met with the ladies from Montblanc at one of my favourite restaurants in town, Bindella, for a very fun arts and crafts session. After a yummy lunch complemented by a tiramisu, the shape of the bottle, the bows, the colours and tags were finally determined.

In December right before the big launch event, we met at the Montblanc offices in Zurich to finish the product by hand. While enjoying champagne and chocolate truffles, we brought the packaging to perfection.

Those of you who were lucky to get one of the 100 limited edition bottles, know now, how much work and passion went into SANDRA BERRY. I truly hope that you will like it.

For my Swiss based readers: If you like to know more about the colour pink, have a look at my column in the recent March edition of the SI Style magazine in which I am telling you all about it. There is a reason why you “look in the pink”

Talk to you soon from Los Angeles!

Givenchy – This Season’s Lady Rottweilers

Givenchy Rottweiler Tank Top

Last season, we had to wear the oversized men’s T-shirts if we wanted to get our hands on the amazing Rottweiler print by Givenchy. This season, we finally get our own. This tank top sold out in a few seconds in the first round, and even Pink couldn’t resist. But thanks to LUISAVIAROMA you can pre-order the second delivery now. Just CLICK HERE to be transferred directly.

Rottweiler-Scarf-Givenchy

And why not getting the wool cashmere gauze Rottweiler scarf with your order?! I couldn’t resist and am pretty curious how my parent’s Rottweiler will react if he sees my new pieces. Hopefully, he won’t misinterpret the situation, as he can be quite awkward sometimes.

This was my look last week for a lunch meeting in Zurich. I love the colour combination of pink, brown and light greyalways preppy.

You might remember the dress because I wore it to the Gucci S/S 2012 show last September in Milan. For the previous, more colourful look, please click here. Good news is that this pink dress is on sale 50% off now and with its vibrant colour a great investment piece for the next season.
