My Look: Sports Couture

Sports Couture - Sandra Bauknecht

The case of sports couture presents a win-win situation as you can wear something really stylish which is comfortable at the same time. This doesn’t happen so often in fashion. Here I paired up a mesh-trimmed dress with with a hooded sweater jacket athletic-inspired look.

My look: Cropped sweatshirt by Saint Laurent, iconmesh-trimmed silk crepe de chine dress, iconmesh bra topelasticated leather ankle boots, nouveau python clutch iconand crystal earrings, all by Gucci, Hapi leather bracelet by Hermès, Limelight Gala watch and rose diamond ring by Piaget.

LoL, Sandra

Akris S/S 2012: Ladies, Start Your Engines!

Start Your Engine!

Last Sunday, Albert Kriemler presented his Akris S/S 2012 runway show during Paris Fashion Week and surprised us with some amazing prints which have become his signature.
Ladies, start your engines!

Like Miuccia Prada, the designer got turned on by cars this season and seeked inspiration from John Frankenheimer’s 1966 film Grand Prix, set in Monaco.

This dress would be the perfect look for Princess Charlene next May at the Monaco Grand Prix Formula 1 race, don’t you think? The princess, who has been seen many times in Akris, sat front row at the show and I am pretty sure that she was kind of Albert Kriemler’s muse for this collection.

Sport is an important trend for next summer and Akris offers some clean and crisp choices. But my favourite part of this collection is definitely the motor sports section!

Enjoy the looks! For my Zurich based readers, Gassmann carries a large selection of Akris.

At the Ermanno Scervino S/S 2012 Show


Today, I also went to see the Ermanno Scervino S/S 2012 show which took place at la Scuola Militare, the military school. The scenery was quite impressive and a wonderful juxtaposition to the very romantic and feminine collection.


With the next summer collection, Ermanno Scervino takes us on a voyage across India of Rajasthan and of the Maharajas. The Florence based designer is constantly melting different worlds and different materials, combining sportswear and couture by playing with unexpected combinations, such as geometric jackets over light ruffled dresses.

In the front row (so-called “frow” now), I spotted Alice Dellal (model and sister of shoe designer Charlotte Olympia) who is the new advertising face for the Ermanno Scervino F/W 2011 campaign, in the amazing black overall from the winter collection. Alice with her edgy look adds the right twist to those soft and playful creations.

Great choice! I have loved the S/S 2012 show and you? You can watch it at the end of this post.

LoL, Sandra
