Greetings from Saint-Tropez! I am so happy to be back in this picturesque town where you can party day and night.

My Look: Retro Prints

After a year of mostly being stuck at home, we are all craving for bright colors, and vibrant prints. In fact, all things retro have had a big influence on fashion and personally speaking I adore Emilio Pucci’s swimwear collections that are very reminiscent of the ’60s and ’70s. Those kaleidoscopic patterns make me feel like being at a Mediterranean getaway immediately.

My Look: Soccer

Last Monday, I watched the Euro 2020 game between Switzerland and France which was an absolute thriller, so captivating and good. I feel very blessed to have two nationalities which doubles the chances to win. After my home country Germany lost on Tuesday against England, all my hopes are pinned on Switzerland.

Hopp Schwiiz! Fingers are crossed for another amazing game on Friday against Spain. My outfit is ready – a playful take on soccer fashion.

My look: Oversized embroidered appliquéd printed neon mesh T-shirticon, embroidered logo soccer pants, and soccer neon pink low-top sneakers, all by Balenciaga, fringed intarsia wool scarf by Miu Miu, cat-eye acetate and gold-tone sunglasses by Bottega Veneta, Barocco print soccer ball by Versace, and Carrera Automatic Chronograph by TAG Heuer.

My Look: Capri

Today I am on my way to Ischia and Capri for the weekend and I am so much looking forward to being back. Last time I was there was for the opening of the Aquazzura store one year ago. The brand’s founder & creative director, Edgardo Osorio, invited us to the island for a weekend of pure fun that I have only shared in my IG stories so far. Here is my outfit that I wore for the first night. We enjoyed sunset cocktails at the beautiful JK Place Capri. A magical place for Edgardo and his partner Ricardo. Here the name Aquazzura was created during a sunset dinner overlooking the bay. It comes from the words ‘acqua’ and ‘azzurra’, which means blue water in Italian. Edgardo has always been in love with the sea and the sun, and wanted the name of his brand to both evoke his love for Italy and to remind him of Capri.

Weak in the Presence of Beauty

In the beginning of June, an amazing exhibition took place at Kunsthalle in Zurich and I was extremely bumped that I couldn’t go as the event took place for one day only. Originally a coffee table book, ‘weak in the presence of beauty’ is a photographic series by Swiss artist Walter Pfeiffer.

The exhibition captured the constants throughout Daniel Lee’s menswear collections at Bottega Veneta. Walter Pfeiffer continues to represent the fluidity of gender and sexuality, especially expressed with the male body.

Additional drawings from the artist, who had long worked as an illustrator before making a name as a photographer, complimented a curated edit of these photographic images. Friends and family showcased the best bits including Roberto Bolle, Trent Alexander Arnold, Timo & Janik Baumann, Pan Daijing and Fernando Cabral.

My Look: Oh!

Oh! Wait.. how old am I? Probably too old for being in the playroom of Gstaad Palace hotel. However, I still have that inner child in me which also translates from time to time in my choice of fashion. Candy colors, soft shapes, and cute prints have always attracted me, as they are providing a grown-up way to add a playful edge to any look. The key to staying young? Not growing old in your mind!

My look: Crochet-knit cotton-blend jacketicon, and fringed polka-dot crochet-knit cotton mini skirticon, and The Whirl leather clutch in pinkicon, all by Bottega Veneta, leather over-the-knee bootsicon by Alexander McQueen, pearl and crystal necklace by CHANEL, and logomania superstition scarf by Louis Vuitton.

My Look: Shibori & Macramé

Hello beautiful weather! Time to put on some fun pieces. Do you know what shibori and macramé are? My beautiful and super comfy jumpsuit is printed with a Japanese shibori – inspired pattern.  Shibori (from the verb root «shiboru» – «to wring, squeeze or press») is a Japanese manual tie-dyeing technique, which produces a number of different patterns on fabric. Macramé is a crafting technique that uses knots to create various textiles as seen on my bag and shoes. I love the combination of both beautiful craftsmanships and hope you will like it too!
