My Look: Villa del Parco

Sandra_Bauknecht_Villa_del_Parco_Forte_Village

As you already know, I am on vacation in Sardinia, staying at the beautiful Forte Village resort in the Villa del Parco hotel which is surrounded by lush gardens and a magic forest. Curly hair, only a little lipgloss, then you know, I am on holidays…

When it comes to travelling, I love to pack Missoniicon and Hervé Léger because both brands make clothes that are timeless, don’t wrinkle and are easy to stuff in a suitcase. Can you imagine that I bought this dress around 12 years ago?!

My look: Multicolored dress by Missoni, gold-plated multi-stone necklaceicon by Etro, Anita fringed suede shoulder bag and iconbeaded leather sandals, both by Saint Laurent, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery and Limelight Gala watch by Piaget.

My Look: Greetings from Sardinia

Greetings from Sardinia-Sandra Bauknecht-Pier Luigi Loro Piana

Greetings from Sardinia! I am here at the famous Costa Smeralda for the 6th edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta 2014. Enjoying the glistening waters of Porto Cervo, I am guest of Loro Piana. During the last two days, I have already experienced some outstanding moments, indulding into the world of the Italian brand and their longstanding passion for sailing. I had the opportunity and honor to interview Mr Pier Luigi Loro Piana, who takes part in this major sailing event with his own 25-metre yacht My Song. Here you see me at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. Stay tuned for more photos coming up soon!

My look: Vintage striped dress by Missoni, turquoise suede sandals by Prada, Marion quilted leather backpack by Tory Burch, sunglasses by Tom Ford and Amulette necklace by Cartier.
