My Look: St. Tropez

Back from the amazing ASW Summer Weekend in St. Tropez, I am filled with many lovely memories that I will soon share with you. For the first evening, I wore this beautiful gown by my friend, Ukrainian-born, London-based designer Natasha Zinko who is one of the most talented designers I know. Her creations are beautiful, architecturally crafted pieces that play with proportions and cuts. Unexpected and different, exactly what I love!

My look: Point d’esprit strapless maxi dressicon by Natasha Zinko, Dioressence heels in dark blue cracked leather by Dior, bracelet by Anselm Reyle for DiorMy Own Code clutch by Valentino, Minimal Baroque sunglassesicon by Prada, silver-plated, Swarovski crystal and faux pearl clip earrings by Miu Miuiconand laser-cut leather waist belt by Alaïa.

LoL, Sandra

Today’s Look: Irma Goes Brazil


Today’s look has a little surprise. Let’s see if you spot it.

Printed T-Shirt by IrmasworldJeans by Fè-Sonho Segredo BahiaPython Palais Pumps by Yves Saint Laurent Baroque Sunglasses and Striped Sombrero by PradaNeon Clutch by Christopher Kane Bangles (Souvenir from Dubai).



Let me tell you more about the Art Print Irma Tee: Irma is an internationally known fashion illustration that has fans around the world. In Japan, she graces many covers and her success is unbelievable. There is a real Irma hype. So it is no wonder that ten percent of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross to benefit Japanese relief projects. Sometimes I see myself in the lovely figurine that is drawn by a friend of mine.




The jeans by the new brand Fè-Sonho Segredo Bahia were a gift of LuisaVia Roma (Thank you!) and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I first tried them on. Here is the surprise: They have butt padding. First I couldn’t think of someone who would like to have a bigger bottom, but the position of the „outer implants“ is above so that it creates a nice apple shape. I mean those jeans come from Brazil  and this is the home of the perfect silhouette!

What do you think?

LoL, Sandra

Prada Minimal Baroque Sunglasses


Prada launched a few days ago at the CAFA Art Museum in Beijing, China the new Minimal–Baroque eyewear collection with some beautiful illustrations by Ivo Bisignano, Marcela Gutierrez and Andrea Tarella. The idea takes its inspiration from the S/S 2011 runway show and the capsule collection will be produced as a limited edition, being sold starting February in Prada boutiques, selected department stores and ILORI eyewear shops.

If you don’t manage to get your hands on one of these 500 unique pairs of shades, Prada will be releasing two more models from the Minimal-Baroque collection in April. I am loving them! And you?

LoL, Sandra
