Emilio Pucci Sneakers of the World

Eleven sneakers dedicated to eleven vibrant cities of the world – Emilio Pucci launches a new limited edition capsule collection that celebrates luxury sportswear inspired by the most renowned cities.

Through a journey across the world, each shoe is an exclusive combination of colors: dynamic for Milan, tropical for Miami, and radiant for Seoul. The collection includes styles dedicated to Florence, Rome, Paris, London, Dubai, Moscow, Hong Kong, and New York.

The name of the each city is embroidered on the back of the shoe; vivid colors, elastic bands and mini rouchesdetails create a unique and fashionable design.

Every model of Sneakers of the World will be available in the Emilio Pucci boutique of the related city from now while all models will be exclusively sold on the online flagship store.

What a pity that we don’t have a Pucci store in Zurich…

My Look: Chanel Airlines

Sandra_Bauknecht_CHanel_Airplane

«The bad news is time flies. The good news is you are the pilot! Your wings already exist, you just have to start to fly.»

I love flying (literally in all ways, sometimes it is good to get my feet back on the ground). When I was a little girl, I hung a world map in my room and put little needles in the locations I had visited. This poster is still in my parent’s house and whenever I come back home, I add the new ones. I have seen many countries, visited all five continents as travelling has been my other big passion besides fashion, but ones you see the magnitude of our planet, you realize how small you are and even if you think that you have seen so much, you have not seen a lot! Speaking off which, bye bye Switzerland! Off I go… comfy but in style!

My look: Cashmere sweater, cashmere top, matching pants, sneakers, backpack, circle messenger bag and airplane brooch, all from Chanel‘s flight-themed «Chanel Airlines» S/S 2016 collection.

LoL, Sandra

Rihanna Takes Marie Antoinette to the Gym

For her S/S 2017 Fenty x Puma collection, Rihanna imagined what Marie Antoinette would wear to the gym. I mean it is bad news for the late queen that it took 223 years until someone finally made her a collection of sport clothes. Good news is that the collection is so stunning that it was definitely worth the wait and that we are happy to enjoy it now!

Last fall, Bad Gal Riri made her Paris Fashion Week debut with satin corsets, lace fans, sweatshirts and pearls, lace do-rags and just about everything else you could imagine the infamous Marie Antoinette wearing while working out. Royal athleisure it was!

Olive-hued, satin-bow slides

Her absolute know-how can be seen in the footwear that still manages to sell out at every drop as those olive-hued, satin-bow slides that debuted earlier this month.

Satin sneaker

Now, more Marie Antoinette-inspired Fenty x Puma will be coming soon afterwards, with more arrivals expected to drop on a monthly basis until June, starting on April 15, 2017.

Miu Miu Astro Running

_AGO5112 okTitel Miu Miu_AGO5098 ok

While being in London, I spotted the new Miu Miu Astro Running sneakers in their store on New Bond Street. Transforming the classic running shoe into a piece of style, they come with unprecedented lightness and are one of the must-haves for the next season. Sneakers appeared on many runways.

The articulated rubber sole, sourced in the Miu Miu archive, has been reinvented with the addition of little round nubs – part baby hedgehog, part sea creature in appearance. The upper is crafted in a technical satin that is entirely hand-embroidered with constellations of sequins and crystal.

The neck of the shoe is cut in neoprene, sock-like, to ensure a perfectly close fit. Apparently contrasting elements are brought together to make the world a more lovely place to be: light-footed, light-hearted and sparkling with touches of light.

At the Burberry Prorsum S/S 2015 Show

Burberry Prorsum SS2015 Show Cover

It is such a busy time of the year and I have so many things to show you. London Fashion Week was filled with amazing moments and outstanding experiences. My favorite show was definitely Burberry Prorsum. The S/S 2015 collection, named ‘The Birds and The Bees’, included bright book cover designs, oversize butterfly prints and hand-drawn honey bees, which were referenced on the hand-painted runway and illustrated on the transparent roof above the fashionable guests inside the custom-built venue in London’s Kensington Gardens.

Ceiling Burberry Prorsum

British singer-songwriter and Burberry Acoustic musician James Bay performed the live soundtrack to the show.

How much class Christopher Bailey has, shows this e-mail I received right after the Burberry Prorsum S/S 2015 show. It made me as happy as he probably was after the finale of the presentation when he jumped on stage applauding to James Bay. Congrats, Christopher, I am your big fan!

Chanel Sneakers FW2014 -Most wanted

There is no doubt! You are looking at the top sneakers of the season: CHANEL‘s iconic style meets sports allure with an outstanding shoe design. Dream on, fashionistas, how much nicer grocery shopping would be if we all wore couture trainers. Spotted with everything you can imagine, from chic twin sets and casual everyday looks to ball gowns, the new CHANEL must-have features the iconic CC logo on the sole.

PAP_FW14_AdCamp_DP_fin

Low or high like a boot, laced up until the knee, it comes in twenty different combinations of materials and colours: tweed in a multitude of effects (chevrons, woven, bouclé …), suede, in laminated, crackled or iridescent leather, and in distinct associations dominated by black and pink, orange, black and gold, red and green, pink and silver…

Fash Friday: The End of the World

Fash_Friday_EndofWorld

Today it marks the 21st of December, 2012 – apparently judgment day, the date Mayans predicted to be the end of the world. An eternal scare story that leaves only one thing for certain, it won’t be the last apocalyptic prophecy.

Personally speaking, the 21st of December has always been my lucky day, it was my beloved grandmother’s birthday, it is the day my husband and I came together (which might have been already his personal Armageddon, haha).

Nevertheless, if the world goes down today, I will definitely go shopping before and get this outfit: Madame cotton-blend terry sweatshirt iconby Zoe Karssen, Natalie embroidered twill and satin mini skirt by Peter PilottoBekket leather and suede sneakers iconby Isabel Marant and Pashli shark-embossed leather trapeze toteicon by 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Chanel Resort 2013

144477276_10_article_gallery_landscape

As previously reported on Sunday, Chanel‘s Resort 2013 collection was set in the gardens of Versailles and leave it to Karl Lagerfeld to one-up himself with his latest designs.

144498510_10_article_gallery_landscape

In keeping with the show’s setting, the outfits, mostly pastel-coloured, were reminiscent of the Marie Antoinette era. But it is a collection that strikes a fun balance between Louis XVI-era costume design and a decidedly 21st century modernity.

144477161_10_article_gallery_landscape

The voluminous white skirts almost looked like fondant, with ruffles in sugary blues and pinks. Brocade-infused one-piece swimsuits, floral-sleeve frocks, gold-embroidered denim vests, and sheer ruffled skirts, will surely be among Chanel’s new season bestsellers.

144481642_10_article_gallery_portrait

The Boy Bag is still the must-have bag and was re-invented in different versions. Many models wore platform sneakers to their skirts which gave the looks a modern twist.

144476726_10_article_gallery_portrait

The models wore cute wigs tied back with large bows (like a copy of Karl Lagerfeld’s own hairdo) and pink eye shadow and tiny interlocking Cs beneath their eyes, like teardrop tattoos. This totally inspired me for a new sort of beauty mark!

144481580_10_article_gallery_landscape

And the buffet after the show reminded me a little of the beautiful setting at the Paris-Bombay show last December.

Are you ready now to see some of the chicest Chanel Resort 2013 looks? Here you go!

Star Style: Heidi Klum in Closed

Heidi Closed

Heidi Klum was spotted this weekend on the streets of Los Angeles in a gorgeous military green jumpsuit (light chino, 100% cotton, 279,00 €) byCLOSED.

She paired her casual look with a comfy pair of sneakers. My favourites at the moment are the Tokyo suede and patent-leather high-top sneakers iconby Jimmy Choo. Add a pair of metal-frame aviator sunglasses by Gucci and a statement ring, such as the blackened oxidized-silver filigree ring by Bottega Veneta for a fabulous blend of cool and chic.

The perfect look for a mum-on-the-run!

LoL, Sandra
