Please Excuse My Absence from Blogging

FB Cover

Please excuse my absence from blogging! For ten days, Sandra’s Closet stood still due to severe problems with the newsletter system. Due to this update, you still might experience some difficulties. Bare with me. I have been very busy during those last weeks with the magazine and another new exciting project I will tell you more about tomorrow.

The June issue of L’OFFICIEL Switzerland dedicated to high jewelry is available from today with Lauriane Gilliéron on the cover wearing Tommy Hilfiger and featuring Piaget‘s amazing “Limelight Mediterranean Garden Collection” shot by David Shama in Los Angeles under my fashion direction. Stay tuned for some fun making of pics coming up soon!

Moreover, the first full issue of L’OFFICIEL Voyage is also at the newsstand today – yes, I’ve been busy!

My Look: Kolor is the New Black

Karl Kolor-Sandra Bauknecht

Black and white. With the iconic colour combination that has become his signature, Karl Lagerfeld restrains the chromatic palette like no other. However, this season, the designer has decided to have some fun with colour, splashing the most intense shades into an accessory capsule collection. Introducing Karl Kolor: a series of bags, minaudières, watches, scarves, glasses, shoes and toys in the brightest hues imaginable.

Karl Kids

Here you see me wearing some of his radiantly colourful pieces that cheerfully enhance the season’s looks. Proud to be a Karl Kid! Thanks for the feature in the new issue of KARL DAILY.

L’Officiel Voyage Switzerland Launch Party

L'Officiel Voyage Launch Party in Zuirch-Sandra Bauknecht

Last month, another baby was born: we celebrated the launch of L’OFFICIEL VOYAGE SWITZERLAND at the home of R Selection, the luxurious travel agency in Zurich.

The first issue of our new travel dedicated supplement which is published in German and French is still on newsstands nationwide, along with the October issue gracing Charlize Theron. Some of you might remember when I flew to Paris to interview the blonde actress. If you are interested, you have to hurry. There is not so much time left until our next L’OFFICIEL SWITZERLAND issue will arrive.

Enjoy some of the impressions of our launch party below. I have to say that I am a very proud editor in chief and I truly love my job!

Thank You, Breuninger Magazine!

Sandra Bauknecht -Breuninger Magazin

Recently I was asked to be featured in the Breuninger Magazine which was of course an honor for me! The famous department store with its mother house in Stuttgart has today 11 shops all around Germany, in Düsseldorf, Ludwigsburg, Sindelfingen, Nürnberg, Freiburg, Erfurt, Leipzig, MTZ, Karlsruhe and Reutlingen. As my husband is originally from Stuttgart, I know this shopping heaven pretty well because I always go there when we visit his hometown.

For my German speaking readers, please find the interview herewith.
