My Look: Paris Fashion Week Love

With a history rooted in haute couture and a reputation for hosting some of the world’s famous fashion houses, experts and guests might explain why Paris is my favourite fashion week city. The final leg of the big four (New York, London, Milan, Paris), Paris Fashion Week (PFW) traditionally provides the most drama with designers creating the most spectacular runway shows. Stay tuned for some of my adventures!

My Look: Fusalp

Today, I have sported my new FUSALP ski suit for the first time while taking a walk around Gstaad. Made of a totally stretch material for ease of movement, I have enjoyed doing some yoga stretches in the sunny weather. Thanks to its lightweight and high-tech materials, I don’t need to fear the cold or the humidity.

An icon of the brand’s collections, the MONTANA III jacket is as comfortable on the ski slopes as in the city. Made in a two-ply material with a high-performance microporous membrane, it is windproof, water-repellent and breathable. The ELANCIA II ski pants offer the same advantages, and are made of a technical Schoeller© softshell material with fleece backing.

Key pieces for the ski wardrobe, so comfortable you don’t want to take them off.

My look: MONTANA III jacket in ibis, and matching ELANCIA II ski pants in ibis, both by Fusalp, face-covered jersey roll-neck top by BalenciagaTrekkgirl snow boots by Valentino, andicon Audrey wayfarer sunglasses by Celine.

My Look: Gold Coated

While being in Boston right now, I would like to show you the first look from last weekend’s photo shoot at the beautiful Dolder Grand hotel in Zurich. This has become one of my favorite looks for the holiday season. Coated in eye-catching gold, thanks to this unexpected texture the outfit has a modern vibe. It is very comfortable to wear and the padded rubber boots will keep your feet warm during the wet season.

My Look: Christmas Shopping

Everyone loves department stores at Christmas and we finally have such a high-end shopping heaven in Zurich. The new GLOBUS at Schweizergasse 11in the city center is unrivalled in Switzerland with luxury fashion houses, such as Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Celine, Loewe, Valentino and many more having their own boutiques on the ground floor. The so-called «House of Gifts» looks more magical than ever before and the selection is great.

I found for example this very hard to get limited edition bag from the Balenciaga Hacker Project and my amazing YSL advent calendarThere is even valet parking offered to their VIP customers. Christmas shopping at its best.

My look: Check tweed padded jacket in multicolor by Guccilace-trimmed velvet and floral-print wool-twill blouseicon, velvet shortsgold-tone, enamel and faux pearl clip earringsicon, and Kika patent leather slingback pumps with velvet self-tie wrap, all by Saint Laurent, Hacker tote «This is not a Gucci bag» by Balenciaga (limited edition of 600).

Balenciaga Hacks Back Gucci


Alessandro Michele kickstarted «The Hacker Project» of Balenciaga’s design codes for its Gucci Aria Collection earlier in April. In June, Demna Gvasalia hit back when he presented his Resort 2022 collection for the French fashion house where 14 looks were inspired by Gucci details. Both lines hit the stores on November 15, 2021.

Besides launching crossbranded merchandise with Gucci, selected Balenciaga stores will have their windows «Gucci-fied».

The must-have collector pieces come with a mashup of the GG monogram with double-B logos to create a one-of-a-kind crossbranded motif that appears on ready-to-wear, accessories and bags. To shop the collection, click here.

My favorite bag comes with a graffiti slogan «This is not a Gucci bag».

The Hacker Project

It is a HACK! The Hacker Project, first presented within Gucci Aria in April 2021, merges the iconic silhouettes and codes of Balenciaga and Gucci in unique creations as an exploration on ideas of authenticity and appropriation within the fashion industry. Among the hybrid universe of ready-to-wear and accessories, combining the aesthetics of Creative Directors Alessandro Michele and Demna Gvasalia, emblematic styles come together to create something new — from the Jackie 1961 enriched with a diagonal Balenciaga print to the City bag in GG canvas and the Triple S sneaker reimagined with Gucci’s Flora print.

The range includes styles featuring the new jumbo GG motif, a maximalist version of the historic monogram.

The non-collaboration even includes a co-branded Triple S.

Available for two weeks only, the Balenciaga and Gucci’s Hacker Project will drop worldwide on November 15.

My Look: Power Shoulders

One jacket, two looks. Power shoulders have always made a strong statement in fashion and they work with pants and skirts. The strong shoulder is most associated with the 80s, but it first had a heyday in the 30s and 40s, as a sign of women’s liberation, when the female suit was primarily birthed. I love this versatile Balenciaga jacket that comes with a built-in skirt. One piece, many options and styles … statement fashion for the woman of the new 20s.

My look: Oversized plaid wool jacket with built-in skirt detail (2017) by Balenciaga, cropped high-rise wide-leg jeans by Stella McCartney, cashmere circles appliqué scarf and logo striped oversized silk shirt, both by Prada, New Abby tweed sailor cap by Maison Michel, JW-charm gold-plated choker by JW Anderson, bean embellished leather toteicon by Simone Rocha, Vita suede platform sandalsicon by Amina Muaddi, Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis, and leopard face mask by Dolce & Gabbana.
