My Look: Little House on the Prairie

Challenging my inner Laura Ingalls Wilder… Driving with the MASERATI Ghibli Hybrid through the Swiss countryside in my Liberty floral print maxi dress, I remembered the American Western television series «Little House on the Prairie», that I loved to watch when I was a child. It is the perfect outfit for a picnic in the meadow.

My Look: Kusama

This week, I flew to Berlin for a very special event hosted by Veuve Cliquot: a unique closing dinner of the retrospective of exceptional artist Yayoi Kusama at Gropius Bau. The dress code said «colorful chic», so I went for this artsy, sophisticated look with a touch of elegance and a little bit of Veuve Cliquot orange.

Stay tuned as I will show you much more of this wonderful evening!

Summer Bucket Hats

The bucket hat has perhaps had one of the biggest fashion glow-ups in the accessories market. Personally speaking, I love this relaxed style that has become a summer must-have for me, easy to pack and very lightweight, much easier than a big straw hat that hardly fits in your suitcase.

High-fashion brands, like Celine, Etro and Kate Spade took the bucket hat to the S/S 2021 runway, showing how trendy it is.

There’s no one way to wear a bucket hat anymore, as the style is as brilliant paired with a mesh beach cover-up as it is with a luxurious tropical print dress. Below you can find my favorites.

Happy Monday! To shop, just click on the highlighted product description.

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.

Stylish Water Bottles

Designer water bottles are a thing now. Sustainable fashion is trending and designers have been getting a bit more creative by offering accessories that help to reduce and prevent plastic waste.

If you haven’t already, it’s time to say so long to single-use plastics and opt for a reusable water bottle. And while you’re at it, why not take it to the next level with one of these stainless-steel designer versions?

Don’t forget, hydration will never be out of style…

My Look: Chic Happens

Chic happens – especially when you are in Gstaad even if you just go for a stroll … I am so happy to be back up in the mountains at my home away from home, the Gstaad Palace hotel. Injecting some color into your wardrobe is an immediate mood booster and elevates an outfit to new heights. You should try it …

Happy Lunar Year 2021

Happy Lunar Year 2021! The Year of the Ox has officially started today and Louis Vuitton, Dior, Fendi, and more luxury brands welcome it in great style with Chinese New Year-inspired fashion. These collections will hit the Western markets during the next weeks, and it is your chance to add a festive touch to your closet.

Louis Vuitton welcomes the Year of the Ox with a special selection of gift-ready leather goods, accessories and other precious tokens. From the recently released SINCE 1854 Monogram Jacquard to the most iconic leather goods, Louis Vuitton’s gift selection has something to suit every style and sensibility.

The Fendi Chinese New Year Capsule Collection, launched in Greater China already in January, will be available in the rest of the world from April 2021. It is a beautiful collection of ready-to-wear and limited edition bags, featuring red and pink colors, as well as blossoms and other floral designs signature to the lunar year.

Burberry presents the New Year with a forward-looking fashion collection featuring supermodel Liu Wen with Wang Xiangguo in their campaign lensed by Feng Li.

In honor of Lunar New Year, Dior unveils a celebratory capsule collection of accessories and footwear in rich red and gold hues for women. For men, Dior launches an exclusive men’s capsule reinterpreting the powerful creative dialogue between Kim Jones and Californian artist Shawn Stussy.

In honor of the Year of the Ox, meet Ozzie – a symbol of strength and reliability. Tory Burch celebrates Lunar New Year with a beautiful collection dedicated to  health, happiness and prosperity that is featuring something red for good luck.

Gucci’s ode to the upcoming Lunar New Year is definitely one of the more fun collections. Featuring «Doraemon», the famous blue Japanese manga and anime character – a cat-robot, this special collection for men and women, you’ll see Doraemon in his classic blue colour and also dressed up in a brown colour and puts on his horns as well.

Versace’s Lunar New Year 2021 capsule collection focuses on local traditions and sees vibrant and uplifting prints that showcase new interpretations of the brand’s Medusa motif to celebrate the ox.

My Look: Après Ski

High performances, unique style. I am so in love with Fendi‘s amazing ski collection that takes your winter outfits to new heights. Perfect for making a statement on the slopes, those pieces also work great for an après ski party (which will happen hopefully soon again …). The jacket is reversible which means you have two different looks in one.

My look: Reversible hooded logo-print down ski jacketicon, FF-jacquard sweatericon, high-rise soft-shell skinny-leg ski trousersicon, printed ski helmeticonappliquéd shell and leather ski gloves, and T-Rex shearling-lined logo-print coated canvas and leather ankle boots, all by Fendi.

My Look: The North Face x Gucci

Celebrating the spirit of discovery and being all wrapped up in some of the must-have The North Face x Gucci pieces, I would be hard to lose in a snowstorm such as we experienced in the end of last week. Just in one day, my garden transformed into a winter wonderland. The perfect backdrop to sport the vibrant colors, and prints inspired by garments from the ‘70s.

My look: Printed down vest, and ankle boots, both by The North Face x Gucci, rose-embroidered cotton-blend socks by Gucciicon, Phillipe cashmere-blend bouclé sweater,icon matching Pablo cashmere-blend bouclé midi skirticon, and colour-block tasselled cashmere scarf, all by Gabriela Hearst, FF-jacquard shearling-lined ski headbandicon by Fendi, and pochette Métis by Louis Vuitton.
