My Look: Reverse Psychology

DO NOT READ THE NEXT SENTENCE.

You little rebel. I like you.

Reverse psychology is motivating a person to do something by telling him or her the exact opposite. By showing you how beautiful it is to be outside at the lake doing some exercises, I am actually hoping you will stay inside as much as possible so that this corona nightmare will hopefully soon come to an end. Dress up at home, it elevates your mood and comfy can be stylish, too!

My look: Reverse Psychology-print cotton-blend jumpsuit by Natasha Zinko, chain necklacesmall messenger flap bag in Tiffany blue (Cruise 2019) and butterfly sunglasses with grey pearl chain, all by CHANEL, Ultrapace mid-top sneakericon by Gucci, and Royal Oak 37mm 18-karat frosted rose gold watch by Audemars Piguet.

My Look: Coco Neige


When it’s cold outside, your first thought isn’t about looking cool; it’s usually just about how to keep from freezing. However, style and practicability can go together very well. For its second season, the CHANEL Coco Neige F/W 2019 collection has continued to redefine an outdoor winter wardrobe with new techniques, volumes, textures and patterns. The snow shoes for example come with a tool to activate spikes on the bottom to grip the icy roads. Here you see me wearing a full look at Bagatelle Courchevel during «Lion’s Run» in the beginning of February 2020. Who would have thought that the world would be so different only a few weeks later…?!

My look: White and black printed canvas blouson, matching snow pants, pink and white striped cashmere and wool sweater, matching scarfwaist bag, and snow boots with spikes on the bottom, all by CHANEL (Coco Neige Collection F/W 2019), and leopard print lens sunglassesicon by Dolce & Gabbana.

My Look: Let’s Stay Home

Let’s stay home – staying home is an act of care for our neighbours, friends, family and all the public health workers who work so tirelessly to keep us safe. However, I am of the opinion that dreams and inspiration must keep a place in our daily life, especially in such difficult times. Over the past few days, I have received some disturbing and aggressive messages from people who think I should abstain from posting «normally». Respecting other opinions is a virtue I hold dear to my heart. I would appreciate the right tone, «c’est le ton qui fait la musique».

Personally, I have a different view on it. Firstly, posting is my passion and makes me truly happy. Over the last ten years it has become my profession and pursuing it during quarantine gives me comfort, a sense of normality. My mission is to share a daily dose of fashion and lifestyle with my readers and I shall continue as long as I can. Online shopping is becoming a welcome alternative to strolling down Avenue Montaigne and frankly is a way to support our economy. If you like my outfit, just click on the highlighted descriptions to be transferred directly for more information.

Being at home gives me finally the time to write about many things I never had time for. Furthermore, I have a lot of pre-shot footage like today’s post that I am so happy to be able to post now. Why spread bad vibes if we have the chance to send each other good energy… and personally speaking, I still like to dress up as it makes me feel good. And that is the most important!

My look: Striped cotton-jersey cardigan, and matching striped cotton-jersey track pantsicon, cotton-poplin shirticon, all by Thom Browne, The Pouch small gathered leather clutchicon by Bottega Veneta, embroidered Ace sneakersicon by Gucci, and stole 140 «Cosmographia Universalis» in blue/rose/vivid yellow by Hermès (design by Jan Bajtlik).

My Look: Omg!

OMG! Lilac – the shade, that interestingly enough, made a resurgence in winter, has been seen everywhere this season. If you don’t want to go for the head-to-toe look, combine the pastel hue with khaki for the ultimate sophistication. Put on a turban and you are ready to turn heads…

My look: Sequin-embellished mohair-blend cardiganicon by Alessandra Rich, leopard-print stretch-cady turbanicon by Dolce & Gabbana, leather tapered pantsicon, and Venus satin pumps, bothicon by The Attico, Multi Pochette Accessories in monogram canvas by Louis Vuitton, sunglasses by Fendi, Love bracelets, and Tortue 18-karat rose gold, alligator and diamond watch, both by Cartier, Diorette ring and earrings, both by Dior Haute Joaillerie.

My Look: Yes Girl Yes!

Yes Girl Yes! Turquoise, light blue and red make a great colour combination. It’s almost spring and those vibrant shades announce the arrival of my favorite season. Some colours and a positive attitude will help us go through these troubled times. The coronavirus has resulted in countless changes to daily life – bars, restaurants are empty and the calls for «social distancing» to slow the spread of the virus is pretty tough on everyone. Therefore I am convinced that it is even more important to find joy in the little things and this can be a great outfit in eclectic hues. Online shopping is a safe way to get your new season pieces …

My look: Ruffle silk jumpsuiticon by Rodarte, small flap bag with top handle by CHANEL, Impatiens clip-on earrings by Oscar de la Renta, and leather platform pumps by Gucci.

My Look: Fashion

Fashion can be unpredictable. Trends come and go. This season, I am crazy for Louis Vuitton. Their S/S 2020 ready-to-wear collection is absolutely divine and you’ll see me wearing a lot of it during the next weeks. My new hard-to-get Pochette Métis is a great daily companion, a bag I can truly recommend and my T-shirt’s nostalgic videotape print delivers the ultimate throwback detail don’t you think?!

My look: Brown leather jacket, printed T-shirt, black A-line skirt, pochette Métis, Podium ankle plateau booties, and Lucky Lady stole, all by Louis Vuitton, sunglasses by CHANEL.

My Look: Weekend

Happy Weekend and Happy International Women’s Day to you all! I hope that you get to spend it the way you have pictured it. Personally speaking, I love a combination of pure relaxation and a bit of yoga. Something, I adore when I am alone in a hotel room all by myself. Here you see me practicing in my new cool sportswear in the Presidential Suite of the Park Hyatt Zurich.

My look: Contrast-panel checked cotton-blend shirt in white/green/lilac by Natasha Zinkocropped stretch-cotton topicon, and stretch-cotton leggings, both by BalmainSorrento high-top sneakers by Dolce & Gabbana, baseball cap with NY Yankees™ patch and embroidered brocade drawstring backpack, both by Gucci.

My Look: Leopard Snake

Here is proof that leopards and snakes can get a long very well. I adore mixing animal prints and hope that you will, too. In my opinion, rain gear couldn’t look any prettier.

My Look: I’m a Herrera Woman

For over three and a half decades, Carolina Herrera has proved with each new season that bold elegance and modern refinement are always in style. Recently, I had the privilege to meet the newly appointed Creative Director Wes Gordon with Net-à-Porter in Dubai (stay tuned for the upcoming post). The extremely talented designer reinforces a commitment to the strong codes established by the founder, blending traditions of couture craftsmanship with the wearability and pragmatism of American Fashion.

My look: Satin-trimmed cady mini dressicon by Carolina Herrera (exclusive to Net-à-Porter), pussy-bow silk satin blouse by Dolce & Gabbana, pochette with chain by CHANELicon, Zoe cutout two-tone leather pumpsicon by Saint Laurent, and «Vicky» hat in black by Hermès.
