Lone Star – The Single Earring Trend

The runways have made a strong return with the single statement earringseen at houses like DiorRosie Assoulin, Tibi, and Louis Vuitton over the past seasons.

In order not to look like a pirate, choose a piece that veers on the glamorous, feminine side. At once edgy and easy to pull off, a lone earring has the ability to make anyone look – in a word – cool. Wear yours with attitude without looking like you are missing something…

Trending: Burgundy Over-the-Knee Boots

Over-the-knee boots have become a fashion mainstay and this F/W 2016 season, they look amazing in burgundy. Most designers are going for suede whereas Roksanda‘s take is all about the season’s ultimate trend material: velvet.

My Look: Dinner with Hermès

Nature is so beautiful that adding to it serves no purpose.” – Robert Dallet (1923 – 2006)

Every year, Hermès picks a theme for the respective year, which is highlighted through their collections and store windows. In 2016, the French Maison is honoring its love for nature with «Nature at Full Gallop».

Last week, I was invited to an intimate dinner by the House at the Museum Rietberg in Zurich to celebrate this beautiful inspiration. The location was amazing, decorated like a jungle. The dinner was served on the «Carnets d’Equateur» porcelain which I showed you in a previous post and that pictures wild creatures such as the jaguar, lion, tiger, elephant and toucan alongside the rare, the manama, capuchin and wooly monkeys.

The design was created by late animal artist Robert Dallet and is a voyage to the core of creation. I find it extremely beautiful.

My look that night: Margot bonded stretch-crepe dress by RoksandaSo Black Kelly bag and silk scarf, both by Hermès, Songe pumps in cracked leather by DiorHorsebit blue topaz diamond white gold ringicon by Gucci Fine JewelleryTonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier and crystal-embellished clip-on earrings by Miu Miu.

My avid reader might recognize the dress as I wore it already 4 years ago (for the previous post, click here please). It got relaunched this season because of the hype Melania Trump caused wearing it in white for her speech to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.

My Look: Bunny Love

Sandra_Bauknecht_Easter_look_2016_bunny_Love
Happy Easter to all of you! I adore playing around with pieces in my closet to match the theme of the day. This bunny ear headpiece and the printed bag are certainly interesting ones to have. Especially the latter from Prada’s Resort 2016 collection, it’s bunnies all over again, with a contrasting design element in the form of red arrows.

My look: Suzu wool-blend crepe dress by RoksandaPalladium-tone, crystal and Plexiglas® necklace by Miu MiuHorsebit-detailed suede knee boots by Gucci, Inside bag with bunnies and arrows by Prada, bracelet by ChanelHorsebit blue topaz diamond white gold ringicon by Gucci Fine Jewellery, and bunny ear headpiece by Louis Vuitton.
