Prada’s New Comic Sneakers

For S/S 2018, Miuccia Prada collaborated with eight female illustrators who depict women in their own way for a collection inspired by comics that I absolutely adore!

Besides the must-have bags and clothes, the designer launches new must-have sneakers for women that will be available at selected Prada stores from end of February 2018. I LOVE!

Most Important S/S 2018 Accessories Trends

After this weekend’s summary about the 15 most important runway trends for S/S 2018, I thought you might enjoy a look also at the must-have accessories for next summer. The forecast: Get ready for your another sumptuous season! Many things are here to stay or will even take it up a notch. Sneakers are trendier than ever and have taken center stage. The ugly shoe phenomenom explores new heights as seen at Balenciaga‘s collaboration with Crocs. And we can deny it no longer: the fanny pack is here to stay. Earrings and straw hats are bigger than ever and bags are most beautiful in an array of patterns.

My Look: Chanel Airlines


«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.


Get ’em while they’re hot (and in stock)!

Most Wanted: Gucci’s Ace Sneakers

Isn’t it so true? A woman can never have enough shoes in her closet. Most of the time, we tend to go for high heels but now it is time to add something new to our wish list: GUCCI icon‘s versatile Ace sneakers. So comfortable and so stylish!


Beautifully embellished with sparkling patches, embroideries, pineapples, bees and of course the iconic green and red stripes, I am absolutely convinced that those beauties will sell out fast.

My favorites: Sequin-embroidered low-top Ace sneakers with lips


A touch of whimsy: Ace heart embroidered leather low-top sneakers

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.

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

Of course, I couldn’t resist this wasp waist denim jacket with ostrich feathers. I mean how gorgeous is this piece?

Thank you Christopher Bailey

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!

Most Wanted F/W 2014: Chanel Sneakers

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.


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…

The CHANEL F/W 2014 sneaker will be available in CHANEL boutiques in September 2014. Also available at COLETTE in Paris from now to October 4th and at LANE CRAWFORDicon, ifc mall in Hong Kong from September 19th to September 29th.

Fash Friday: The End of the World


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.
