My Look: Leather Rebel

Sandra Bauknecht-Leather Rebel-Saint Laurent

Leather is the way forward this season. Wherever you turn, there is the iconic luxe fabric. Skirts, vests or biker jackets; whatever wardrobe staple you’re after, make it leather – it’s the style for the A-List. If you are extra courageous, you’ll wear it head to toe.

My look: Biker jacket with fur details, leather biker vesticon, sheer blouse, studded leather skirt and Janis embellished suede ankle boots, all by Saint Laurent, fur bag by Fendi, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery, Portofino midsize watch by IWC Schaffhausen.

LoL, Sandra

Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane Is Here


The first Cruise 2013 pieces designed by Saint Laurent‘s new Creative Director, Hedi Slimane, have hit the shelves and are true to form with Hedi’s tough chic signature cut – don’t miss the lambskin one-shoulder leather dress and his très sexy striped sandalsicon

Here is your must-have shopping list of forward thinking classics and minimalist accessories:


1 Silk crepe de chine pussy-bow blouse in the house’s iconic fuchsia colour
2 Polka-dot silk-twill pussy-bow blouse
My personal favourite: Chain-trimmed leather mini skirt icon
4 Two bags in one: Reversible suede and leather shopper icon
5 Patent-leather pumps icon

By the way, the new name for the brand is Saint Laurent. The “Yves” is gone for the ready-to-wear line, but interesting to know is that the beauty line remains YSL.

My Look: Cadillac Girl


Last Thursday was a busy night of event hopping. I went to the launch of Arquiste in Zurich, after that to the Cartier cocktail to celebrate the new “Juste Un Clou” collection and later to the opening party of the Christian Louboutin store that was co-hosted by SI Style magazine.

I wore one of my favourite looks for summer:
Printed top and leather skirt from the Prada S/S 2012 runway combined with my orange Birkin bag by Hermès and my beloved Palais  python pumps by Yves Saint Laurent.

LoL, Sandra

Annabelle Magazine – We Are Trend


Something for my Swiss readers: The annabelle magazine features in their recent issue the newest fashion trends presented by “creative people of Zurich”. If you are curious who was photographed for this project, have a look at annabelle’s backstage report by clicking here.

Needless to say, I was very honoured to be part of this wonderful shoot which they named “We are trend!”. The two ladies in charge, Daniella Gurtner and Monica Pozzi along with photographer Gregory Derkenne did an amazing job. The only downer is that they have retouched my beauty mark, which is my signature feature!



My look: Studded leather jacket, skirt and top, all by Versace and my own studded suede platform sandalsicon by Yves Saint Laurent.


Below are some of the behind the scenes shots. Enjoy!

LoL, Sandra
