L’Officiel Switzerland Launch Party

Launch Party L'Officiel

Last Thursday, the launch party for L’Officiel Switzerland took place in Zurich at Kaufleuten. With a stunning atmosphere, reminiscent of 1920s Paris, where it all began over 90 years ago, the fashionable crowd partied until late. Enjoy some impressions of the night and for my outfit post please click here.

My Look: Wishing Upon a Star

Sandra Bauknecht - Wishing upon a star

On Thursday evening, we celebrated the launch of L’Officiel Switzerland. Finally, our first edition is at the kiosk. Personally speaking, I couldn’t have been more excited and of course I am wishing upon a star that it will be a success story. To make a dream come true, I thought wearing some stars might eventually help! Supposedly if you make a wish when you see the first star come out at night, the wish will come true. So better to wear many…

Our presenting sponsor, Aston Martin, offered me a car for the day and I loved it!

My look: Lace-trimmed stretch-silk crepe gownicon by Alessandra Rich, embroidered fur stole by Blumarine, satin clutch and Art Déco earrings, both by PradaJanis leather pumps by Saint Laurent, Limelight gala watch and rose diamond ring by Piaget.

All party pics will be coming up shortly!

LoL, Sandra
