40 Hours in Marrakesh

Sandra Bauknecht in Marrakesh for 40 Hours

Last weekend, I was invited to a very special birthday celebration, a trip and memories that I will treasure forever. My readers who have followed me since the beginning, might remember the amazing 40 hours in Venice for my friend Dan’s 40th birthday in 2011. Now it was time to get together for his wife Mel’s big day.

When I arrived at the airport, none of the guests had any idea where we would fly to. The boarding pass said to Dummy City and when we entered the amazing private jet, everyone was speculating where it would take us. After a fun 3.5 hours flight, we landed in a fairy tale of one and one thousands nights in Marrakesh. The magic red city, where the legends of the Orient still feel alive. And my outfit couldn’t have been a better match…

My look: Dotted silk cardigan and matching top, both by Dolce & Gabbanatransparent black plissée harem pantsicon by Gucci, Boy bag with chains and metallic patent phone holder, both by Chanel, Alice leather sandals with pearls by Saint Laurent, Limelight Gala watch and rose diamond ring by Piaget, Hapi leather bracelet by Hermès.

Stay tuned for more from this weekend coming up soon…

LoL, Sandra

Men S/S 2011: Moroccan Trousers

Hello Gentlemen! In case you were wondering how you will work the Morrocan trend, here you go. Your must-have for S/S 2011 is a pair of baggy pants, and I don’t mean the ones that hang down your knees. I am talking about that chic and trendy version, that are baggy on top and tapered at the bottom.

Try them on and you will fall in love – probably the most comfortable pants in your closet and a great addition to the limited selection that men have. Discover your inner Prince of Persia and if you are a leader by nature, you will definetely not want to miss that trend.

S/S 2011: Marakkesh Moment

Marakkesh SS2011

A Moroccan spirit influenced many designers for their S/S 2011 collections which inevitably meant that Yves Saint Laurent, who had spent many years there, was in the air as well.

As the models stepped out onto the runway, you were immediately jetted off to North Africa with all those crochets, tassels, feathers, beads, fringes and Moroccan mirror details. The Sahara subtext was explicit in the colour palette, the Tuareg head wraps and tribal jewelry seen at Giorgio Armani and Salvatore Ferragamo for example.
Drop-crotch harem pants should be on your must-have list for summer.

LoL, Sandra
