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: Beauty Sleep

As promised here is are all the details of my outfit I wore in yesterday’s post. Perfect for slipping on after a bath for relaxing evenings at home, while indulging in your beauty routine or after a dip in the pool, Fendi‘s hooded robe is cut from naturally absorbent cotton-terry. It’s trimmed with black velour and features the brand’s logo on one pocket. For the ultimate style statement, wear it with the matching face covering, silk eye mask and slippers.

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: 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.

Optical Glasses

No matter if you need them or not, wearing glasses will give you a polished, distinguished and different look. Regardless of your outfit, glasses can help you enhance your unique style and improve how people perceive you in the process. Almost all psychologists agree that glasses-wearers look more qualified and trustworthy. I got myself a pair of glasses that filter out the blue light spectrum to cut down on digital eye strain, which was a great decision.

Below are some optical designer frames I truly like. Make them a statement! It is a little investment for a great output. The attention will be all yours…

Happy Friday 13th – I keep on packing!

LoL, Sandra

Designer Face Masks

This fall season, most outfits have one thing in common, a face mask, as we now can’t enter most shops and events without them. However, besides thinking about your look, it’s an important item for practical purposes. High-street retailers have been selling masks for several months now, but most major luxury fashion brands have stayed away from creating face masks for commercial purposes so far. Finally, numerous designers, such as BurberryDolce & Gabbana, Marni and Fendi, have started to produce fashionable face coverings with vivid prints so that you can coordinate them with their outfits. Find my favorites below, to shop click on the highlighted product description. The mask in the cover photo is by Burberry and can be found here.
