My Look: Hybrid Fashion

Hybrid fashion has been trending for some time now and it is a must when you are looking for refreshing staples. Here you see me wearing a deconstructed sweater that instantly catches your eye. Spliced with a lace-trimmed cream satin camisole through the middle, it slouches off the shoulder and has an adjustable spaghetti strap. The gray wool-blend is knitted with touches of cashmere so it feels soft and cozy. Perfect for a stroll through the city.

My look: Cashmere coat in pink by Pradapaneled wool-blend, lace and satin sweater by Alexander Wangicon, drawstring shorts by Givenchy, suede overknee boots by Dior, Kelly «So Black» by HermèsGG jacquard pattern knitted scarficon, and rabbit-felt fedoraicon, both by Gucci.

The key to fight the autumn blues is to wear some vibrant colors and to have a glowing complexion. One product I can highly recommend is LA MER‘s new The Luminous Lifting Cushion Foundation SPF 20. This all-in-one compact is also a hybrid product, a mixture between powder and foundation, especially great for touch-ups on the go. With healing hydration from Miracle Broth and color capsule technology, it gives skin a lift of luminosity—for a fresh, flawless look and a plumper, firmer feel, like cashmere for your skin. Available now for CHF 115.00 including a refill and additional sponge applicator.

Most Important S/S 2018 Accessories Trends

After this weekend’s summary about the 15 most important runway trends for S/S 2018, I thought you might enjoy a look also at the must-have accessories for next summer. The forecast: Get ready for your another sumptuous season! Many things are here to stay or will even take it up a notch. Sneakers are trendier than ever and have taken center stage. The ugly shoe phenomenom explores new heights as seen at Balenciaga‘s collaboration with Crocs. And we can deny it no longer: the fanny pack is here to stay. Earrings and straw hats are bigger than ever and bags are most beautiful in an array of patterns.

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Sunday Night in Milan

Sandra_Bauknecht_Sunday_night_in_milan

Before leaving my hotel room on Sunday night, I took some photos of my outfit by myself. Somehow, I knew that I would be so busy at the Cavalli event that I would forget to ask somebody to take some pics of my look. Good decision!

I wore a dress and a belt from Matthew Williamson‘s S/S 2009 collection. The British designer is always a great choice when you are looking for cocktail attire. His designs are beautiful and non-seasonal as you can see. Click here to shop a great selection of Matthew Williamson dresses.

My look: White dress with colourful embellishments and wide studded belt by Matthew Williamson, fringed leather bag by Roberto Cavalli, overknee boots and earrings with marina chain motif and dark garnet colored beads, bothicon by Gucci.

Total Styling Lab: Venus in Fur

Venus

Here it is look N°2 from LuisaViaRoma’s Firenze4Ever Total Styling Lab, so-called “Venus in Fur”. Some might not be so delighted about winter’s must-have, but fur was one of the trend materials on the runways. A fur vest is a great investment piece, very versatile to wear.

The `60s inspired dress by Giambattista Valli has a fun detail. The attached cape can be worn as a hood. I especially like the neon-coloured little waist band.

Céline’ s box bag has definitely become a classic. For this outfit, I chose the leopard print version which I find very chic. To shop the look, just click on the highlighted text:

More from Florence to come…

I wore during the day my gorgeous fake fur-leather shorts and bomber jacket by Chanel combined with a body suit by Prada. My Miu Miu necklace added some glamour along with the suede overknee boots by Roberto Cavalli and the patchwork bag by Chanel.
The ‘50s style sunglasses are by Louis Vuitton.

I hope that you like it.
