My Look: Kispi

Finally after three years, the Kispiball (Kispi is an abbreviation for Kinderspital which means children’s hospital in German) took place again at the wonderful Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich. It is one of my favorite charity events of the Swiss social calendar that raises money for the city’s children’s hospital. I danced all night long in my Dolce & Gabbana gown and enjoyed being among my dear friends.

My Look: Red Lace

«Seduction, Stripped Down» is the name Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons gave to the collection.
In her S/S 2022 runway notes, Prada said, «We thought of words like elegant—but this feels so old-fashioned. Really, it’s about a language of seduction that always leads back to the body. Using these ideas, these references to historical pieces, the collection is an investigation of what they mean today.»

In this case the very feminine color red is paired with seductive lace fabric and spiced up with unconventionally placed corsetry boning. The belt is worn inside cinching the waist. Can you imagine that I wear nothing under this dress?! This is modern sexiness that only Prada can do!

My look: Guipure-lace belted cotton-blend midi dressicon, crystal-embellished leather clutch, leather-trimmed PVC sandals, buckle-embellished arm cuff, all by Prada, and silver-tone crystal clip earringsicon by Alessandra Rich.

My Look: Maiden Shanghai

Maiden Shanghai is a new exploration of authentic Chinese cooking in a spectacular setting at the new FIVE Zurich hotel that will open its doors next week. With dramatic views over the Swiss city, it contains a bold dining area and outdoor terrace, aas well as a private dining room. The decor playfully fuses the traditional with the boldly modern, creating spaces that feel open yet connected.

The interior design served as the perfect background to wear for the first time this fun look from the collaboration between French Haute Couture label Jean Paul Gaultier (JPG) and stylist of the moment Lotta Volkova.

My look: Two-piece wool blazericonlace-up crepe and satin leggings, and lace-up satin bralette, all by Jean Paul Gaultier + Lotta Volkovasilver-tone crystal clip earrings by Alessandra Rich, Dr Bored Paloma clutch mini, and Pinupina 130 limited edition pumps, both by Christian Louboutin.

My Look: The New Muse

The new muse … Founded in New York City by designers Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk in 2014, AREA was named after the pioneering New York nightclub of the same name. As design students at Parsons the two creative minds bonded over a mutual love of ’80s glamour and feminine silhouettes. I feel so inspired by the  label’s high-octane embellishments.

My look: Cropped crystal-embellished checked cotton and wool-blend blazericon by AREA, distressed wide embellished paperback jeans by Miu Miu, suede-trimmed crystal-embellished mesh slingback pumps by Gucci, Cloud crystal-embellished suede clutch by Jimmy Choo, Cosette crystal-embellished velvet headbandicon by Jennifer Behrlarge crystal drop choker necklace by Alessandra Rich, and Big Bang All Black Zermatt by Hublot.

My Look: Power Dressing

Mixing two vibrant colors with some neutrals and adding some sparkle – that is my kind of power dressing. This exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel, like yellow and blue, and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations, is called color blocking and something I truly like to do. This trend is said to originate from the artwork of Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian.

My look: Corduroy puff-sleeve coat, matching corduroy mini skirttulle crop top with crystals, and crystal-embellished leather clutch, all by Prada, layered mesh bodysuit by FendiHolly embellished suede knee-high boots by Paris Texassilver-tone crystal clip earrings by Alessandra Rich, and Big Bang All Black Zermatt by Hublot.

My Look: Party

It’s weekend – time to party, I miss those carefree days when we were dancing the night away. Dancing is literally my favorite thing to so and the best way to burn of those fondue calories. Unfortunately, Gstaad Palace‘s famous GreenGo hasn’t opened its doors this season (only for me to take these photos). So I can only dream how I would dress up to be a dancing queen.

My look: Belted silk-cady wide-leg jumpsuit, and VSLING small floral-print textured-leather shoulder bagicon, both by Valentino, Angel leather platform sandals by Gucci, black bow brooch by CHANEL,  silver-tone crystal clip earringsicon by Alessandra Rich, and rose diamond ring by Piaget.
