My Look: Summer Lunch

It was the perfect sunny weather to enjoy a summer lunch at Buech for my fiancé’s birthday. I went for some Caribbean vibes to juxtapose a little bit the Swiss countryside.

My Look: In Style


It is finally time to dress up and go out in style as restaurants are open again in Switzerland. One of my favorite spots to eat in Zurich is La Muña at La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich that serves Japanese Peruvian specialties. Designed by Philippe Starck, it is a treasure chest, mingling imaginary memories of moments spent on the lake with extraordinary objects found in the city and around the world beneath the hotel’s spectacular dome.

As we have experienced lots of rain in Switzerland recently, my new wool-blend coat is the perfect cover-up for those chilly days. It works for going out as well as snuggling on the couch.

My look: Eliona belted hooded merino wool-blend coaticon by The Row, cutout striped pleated wool-blend midi dressicon by Gabriela Hearst, Birkin 30 in gold Epsom leather by Hermès, orange gold-tone and resin clip earringsicon, and flower pendant cable-chain necklaceicon, both by Dolce & Gabbana, two-tone slingback pumps by Prada, and Carrera Automatic Chronograph by TAG Heuer.

My Look: Take Care of Your Mind

«Take care of your mind, your body will thank you.
Take care of your body, your mind will thank you.

A sentence that is very true. Taking time for yourself is so important. Spending a night or a weekend in a beautiful hotel room by myself is pure luxury for me. Putting on a comfy look, enjoying a bath, reading without any distraction recharges my batteries immediately. Here you see me in my room at the La Reserve Eden au Lac, sporting my new Hermès Kelly Danse in different ways. Happy, relaxed and fully energized for many projects coming up this month.

My look: Selma ribbed-knit cardiganicon, Aeris ribbed-knit braletteicon, and Tala tie-front ribbed-knit wide-leg pantsicon, all by Jonathan Simkhai, Kelly Danse II in Verso Blush/Rose Jaipur Evercolor leather with silver hardware by Hermès, iridescent lambskin sandals in light bronze by CHANEL (Cruise 2021), Carrera Automatic Chronograph by TAG Heuer, and silver-tone, crystal and faux pearl necklace by Alessandra Rich.

My Look: Greenpeace

Stella McCartney supports Greenpeace‘s campaign to stop Amazon deforestation. The T-shirt as well as the sweater are both part of this collaboration with the iconic non-profit organization that aims to raise awareness of climate change. They have been made in Italy from soft organic cotton-jersey that’s tie-dyed and patterned with a vibrant rainforest print. With no toxic chemicals, this sustainable cotton uses up to 70% less water than conventional cotton. The same goes for the pants that have been made from sustainable viscose that stands for no deforestation.

My Look: Hearst Rate

My Hearst rate goes up from season to season. I absolutely adore Gabriela Hearst‘s designs, this cashmere coat is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. Each garment is thoughtfully designed and crafted using the most luxurious fabrics. Her collections are inspired by the ranch she grew up on in Uruguay and her current life in New York City.

Being a trendsetter in the industry (she is now also at the helmet of Chloé), Gabriela Hearst has partnered with EON, which is a leading digital identity platform for fashion and apparel – connecting products throughout their lifecycle by unlocking visibility, traceability, and insight through a QR code, that let’s you explore the supply chain and learn about your garment’s journey.

My look: Dream leather-trimmed fringed cashmere coaticon by Gabriela Hearst, embroidered-collar belted denim shirt dress by Chloé, shiny Rose Schéhérazade Porosus Crocodile 25 Birkin bag by HermèsSo Kate 120 striped glittered suede pumpsicon by Christian Louboutin, and pearl necklaces, both by CHANEL.
