Prada Made To Order Shoes for Women

PRADA presents a new range of options for the Made to Order Women’s Shoe collection, a project dedicated to giving customers the opportunity to create a unique, custom-made shoe.
Eighteen models of pumps, slingbacks, ballet flats, boots and sandals with or without platforms and with eight different heel heights are available in a wide range of materials and shades.

The range of iconic Prada prints on a patent leather base has been expanded, with the Lipstick, Barocco and Roses as well as the new Dahlia flames and Mermaids flames patterns: Prada’s iconic prints from various seasons are mixed for a totally new and striking result.

The pumps and slingbacks can now be customized with a detachable poplin bow that comes in nine different prints.

After choosing the model, material and colour, customers can select the colour of the sole (black, phard or light blue) and add their initials, charms or numbers. As an alternative, it will be possible to add the same elements – but in leather – on the exclusive satin dust bag.

The customization continues beyond the product: the packaging for the shoes will match the style chosen so either the classic blue box embellished with an elastic band and metal plaque or one of the Prada prints. The shoes will be delivered eight weeks from order.

 During the month of March PRADA is going to offer this service in Switzerland:
Zurich March 1 – 10, 2019
Lugano March 14 – 20, 2019
Geneva March 22 – 28, 2019

My Look: Weekend Edition

Sandra_Bauknecht_Weekend_edition

I am completely in love with my new Chloé sweater that is the perfect cozy piece to wear at the weekend with its flocked finish and chic pastel-orange hue. Recently, I went through my closet and spotted some fabulous items from previous seasons that feel again like brand new wearing them, in keeping with my motto not to throw out anything. Each piece in your wardrobe will have its time again and combined with new season pieces even help you to add that certain twist.

My look: Flocked wool and cashmere-blend sweater iconby Chloé, apricot-coloured jersey dress by Miu Miu, Monogram Denim Sunrise bag with Foxy fur tail and tassel charm by Louis Vuitton from the S/S 2010 collection, boots by Dolce & Gabbana from the F/W 2006 collection. Earrings by Dolce & Gabbana and snake ring by Roberto Cavalli.

On my nails: Sequined manicure by Ciaté.

Two Icons, One Collection


A limited collection to covet: Ugg for Jimmy Choo, launching in October but available now for pre-order at Saks (shipping worldwide) and Ugg Australia.
The stylish versions of the ultracomfy must-have boots have already got their own nickname: Chuggs. But with a $495.- and more price tag, not everybody can affored to keep warm in style.

Two icons, one collection – I am crazy for them!

The Nautical Top

Chanel Nauticakl Top

The hype has started already last summer when stars like Sienna Miller and Claudia Schiffer were spotted on the streets wearing this ultra-cool Chanel nautical top. It seems like Coco Chanel sparks another trend from her grave as she has transformed the navy and white striped, authentic French sailor`s working garment into a style essential. (It was said that this stripe might help locating a man fallen into the sea).

And the nautical trend hasn`t come to an end yet.

Chanel Cruise 20120

In the movie „Coco before Chanel“ that hit the cinemas early fall, the look was refreshed again by Audrey Tautou when she appeared in a striped boatneck breton shirt playing the famous French couturier.

For the recent resort collections designers are still loving the nautical theme. Maritime colours, stripes and rope belts were seen a lot. Therefore the Lido in Venice was the perfect location for Karl Lagerfeld to show his Chanel Cruise 2010 collection (see the pictures above) that is an hommage to the fabulous Coco and the 1920`s.

The best Nautical Tops

My recommendation is not to go head-to-toe nautical. Snap up a great striped piece for youself like the ones above and team it with skinny jeans and high heels.  I am totally in love with the flower embellished one by Marc Jacobs
icon
. It is a great addition to your summer wardrobe and will accompany you for many years.

Wally

And for those who love cruising, I have the perfect idea: the WHY. Two luxury goods companies, the yacht maker Wally and Hermès, got together to design this amazing boat. Go to their website www.why-yachts.com and get a tour. Enjoy and start dreaming.

Shoe Special S/S 2010: Summer Boots

S 20120

I love Boots therefore I wanted to show you all these stunning pieces for summer. For the hot season there is no need to be practical so it is all about design and probably providing a little air (who likes sweaty feet?!). Cutout details, open toe booties (keep your winter ones), strapped sandal ones- there are so many beautiful details to talk about. It is the shock of contrast that gives it that little special twist I so adore.

I am crazy for the stretch boots with knee pads by Pierre Hardy that I would combine with a beautiful white one-shouldered dress like the one by Tibi. Put some bangles on, a little Grecian style hairpiece and you will truly look like a goddess!
