My Look: Mystical NYC

Mystical New York City… I was three times in the American metropole last month and every time I experienced different weather, from sunny blue skies to freezing temperatures to lots of rain. However, the latter didn’t stop me to photograph my outfits. Surprisingly, the rainy backdrop added an interesting touch to the photos. I love how the transparency of the dress blends in with the concrete of the city. And I finally got to wear my new boots from the Jimmy Choo x Mugler collaboration.

My Look: The Newbury Boston

The Newbury Boston is one of my favorite hotels worldwide, a historic landmark in Boston, Massachusetts, originally opened in 1927 as The Ritz-Carlton Hotel at that time. The property anchors fashionable Newbury Street and the picturesque Boston Public Garden, located in the heart of the Back Bay. It is also home to Contessa, Boston’s most sought after dining experience and definitely the most trending hot spot. After a complete refurbishment under the creative vision of renowned designers Ken Fulk, Jeffrey Beers, and Alexandra Champalimaud and being renamed The Newbury Boston, it opened its doors again in May 2021.

Its slogan «a well-crafted life» fits its service and the beautifully decorated rooms perfectly. Here you see me in my corner suite with its stunning views, reading the iconic Bostonian children’s book «Make Way for Ducklings» by Robert McCloskey.

My look: Glitter jumpsuit, pearl necklace and flap bag with top handle in iridescent grained calfskin and gradient lacquered metal, all by CHANEL, April silk-satin hair clip in pinkicon by Jennifer Behr, and Fira velvet-trimmed suede and flocked tulle pumps in black by Jimmy Choo.

Happy Birthday Anouk

Dear Anouk, from the day you came into this world, I was as proud as can be, blessed with you as my beautiful daughter. So every year we had been celebrating this very special day together to mark another milestone in your life. This year is the first time we are separated due to the current pandemic. I am wishing you all the happiness in the world, celebrate to the fullest! Happy Birthday, Anouk, I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again and will always treasure the moment when I held you for the first time 19 years ago, on April 4th, 2002 at 12.34pm.

You laugh with me at ordinary things, you share my thoughts and understand the things I do and say. As you inspire me every day, your name has also inspired many designers to name their creations after it. I love you!

My Look: Mirage Gstaad

One thing you should not have missed when visiting Gstaad, is the outdoor sculpture MIRAGE GSTAAD. Until this month, the mirror house designed by Los Angeles-based artist Doug Aitken stands on the hiking trail between Schönried and Gstaad and can only be reached on foot.

With every available surface clad in mirror, it both absorbs and reflects the landscape around in such ways that the exterior will seemingly disappear just as the interior draws the viewer into a never-ending kaleidoscope of light and reflection. With the help of my tripod, I shot this outfit post by myself – a comfortable look that is perfect for hiking around Gstaad.

My look: Lawrence space-dyed cashmere sweatericon, and Lauren fringed space-dyed cashmere wrapicon, both by Gabriela Hearst, skinny jeans «Kate» by Dolce & Gabbana, Biker II leather bootsicon by Jimmy Choo, Loulou heart-shaped acetate sunglasses by Saint Laurent, Clash de Cartier ring in 18K rose gold with amazonite by Cartierand waist belt by CHANEL.

Jimmy Choo x Timberland

Jimmy Choo collaborates with footwear label Timberland to create a lineup of glamorous reinterpretations of the signature boots that debuted over 40 years ago and remain popular today.

The limited-edition collection comprises four designs – three unisex and one women’s style. From subtle gold glitter to statement crystal embellishment, the capsule is a unique marriage that fuses two brand’s design iconography. Featuring embellished gold glitter and one-of-a-kind crystal detailing, the versatile range epitomises off-duty glamour.

A limited edition style, encrusted in all-over Swarovski crystals, makes it the ultimate in statement streetwear.

Shot on location in the Californian desert, Hawaiian skater, surfer and model Evan Mock and beauty entrepreneur Kristen Noel Crawley navigate the rugged desert terrain with an energised attitude, taking urban style back to nature. The landscape highlights the raw beauty of the desert while mirrored installations reflect the fusion of the dual brand aesthetics: high fashion glamour blended with outdoor utility.
