Summer season’s popular platform pumps have birthed a movement of sky-high, vampy-sweet shoes that will take us to new heights in winter.

From Loewe’s artsy metallic sandals to Jil Sander’s shimmering gold mules, metallic shine was everywhere this season.

The overknee boot is still holding very strong. However, you might need extra-long legs to wear this season’s best boots.

Designers went big on details with buckles going to the extreme.

Sneakers have gone from chunky dad styles to sophisticated styles. Be it a 3D-printed morph shoe at Stella McCartney, to a mule sneaker at Vuitton or a skate style at Loewe.

This boots are made for walking. Chloé, Dior, and others are betting on outdoorsy, walkable boots.

Designer are getting some fluffy action with footwear in soft textures and oversized volumes.

Bags, Shoes and Accessories Trends S/S 2020

After this week’s post about the 20 most important runway trends, you know that we will be wearing tropical prints, bermuda shorts or gypsy dresses. But what about our shoes, bags and accessories? The fashionable additions to the season’s best outfits have an equally polished attitude. A lot is to stay from the F/W 2019 season, such as chain necklaces, single earrings, head scarves, belts and platforms. Furthermore, the runways were mastered by XXL bags, Mary Janes, and vibrant sunglasses that complemented the looks. On the new side of things, I spotted rope belts and hats on many runways.

Enjoy this season’s unbridled fun and catch up on the season’s most covetable accessories below.

LoL, Sandra

The single most popular material of the entire season was humble raffia, plant-derived, biodegradable, promising that your new It bag will have less of an environmental impact.

If there’s one accessible trend to cop next season, it’s the rope belt – at least you can find one at your local hardware store.

Gold buckles, set with rhinestones, embellished with animals as lucky charms, belts play an important role. If you are among the fashion-forward, opt for colorful choices.

Flower pins elevate every summer look to new heights.

This summer, brighten up your wardrobe with sunny shades of yellow and green, or an unexpected shade of blue.

Dust off your silk scarf collection for the next season, as they were worn around the head on several runways.

When it comes to choose your new bag, think big and soft. Many beautiful XXL editions large enough to fit all of your life’s belongings.

This season, chains get bigger and bigger.

Earrings are going solo next season. Just look for a statement-making piece enough to stand on its own.

Hoop earrings never really left, but get ready to see them multiply in size next season.

Hats make a grand comeback and guarantee that all eyes are on you.

With the preppy trend all over the runways, loafers were seen modernized in different shapes.

Thanks to Bottega Veneta’s Daniel Lee for making strong square toes, the decade’s most experimental shoe silhouette are trending more than ever.

Another trend thanks to Daniel Lee, chain accents are a must for your summer footwear, consider them built-in anklets for your shoes.

Sunglasses come in all shapes with a focus on major color, enjoy those new fantastical shades in every hue under the sun.

If sneakers have lost their luster on the runways, ever-practical platform and flatform sandals have emerged as fanciful and comfortable alternatives.

The classic Mary Jane pumps have taken a backseat over the last decade, now they are making their comeback in bold, whimsical, and playful designs.

From espadrilles to sexy sandals, lace-up shoes are the move come spring and summer. If you really want to be trendy, lace them up right over your pants to be ahead of the fashion tribe.

Most Important S/S 2019 Shoe Trends

In New York, London, Milan, and Paris, it was one the most diverse seasons of shoes yet. From sleek, functional walking sandals in sturdy black leather, to fantastical feather embellished heels for fairytale fantasies. Mules and platforms might help you overcome the sneaker trend as they are also very comfortable. Enjoy this new kind of glamour.

LoL, Sandra

If the Birkenstock was the shoe to wear of S/S 2018, a similarly lug-soled flat sandal will be the one of S/S 2019 – according to the runways at least.

Feathers, feathers everywhere. This season, the feather shoe is the stand-out buy.

The return of platforms to the runway had me truly beaming. Meet me this summer on the dance floor.

Don’t invest too much in sneakers. Pumps are about to get very, very interesting. At Calvin Klein, court shoes took on a scuba spirit, while Balenciaga outfitted its polka dot heels with a bulging triangular back.

With minimal effort required but maximum sophisticated achieved, you will surely be slipping into a barely-there mule this spring.

Sonia Rykiel for H&M




Get ready for this coming Saturday! On February 20, an exclusive knitwear collection by Sonia Rykiel for H&M will be available in around 200 stores worldwide. The colours are flamboyant and the designs like her signature graphic stripes very à la mode.
It is the second part of the collaboration after the amazing success of Rykiel`s recent lingerie collection for H&M. The advertising campaign was shot by Sølve Sundsbø and captures the spirit of the brand perfectly, especially with the models` hair frizzed like the designer`s own.


It is also H&M`s first guest designer collaboration that includes children.

Available are very cute pieces for girls aged 18 months to 8 years.

During my studies, I interned with Sonia Rykiel, the „Queen of Knits“, and worked by her side in her design office located above the famous Parisian shop in Saint Germain des Prés (175, blvd St. Germain). It was a very interesting time for me – not always easy but definitely a worth-while life experience. Today Nathalie Rykiel, Sonia`s daughter, is the president and artistic director of the fashion house.

I was in love with her knitwear a long time before I got to know her. Every piece I own has never gone out of fashion and was absolutely worth the investment. Therefore I am really looking forward to the Sonia Rykiel for H&M collection.

Rykielknit_12_lowresThe ultimate accessory is the UNICEF bag by Sonia Rykiel for H&M. Thirty per cent of the proceeds from the bag will go to a project supposed to improve the lives of children in cotton-growing communities in India. Read more on:

Below you can find my favourites. Get your hands on an iconic piece with Rykiel`s hallmark stripes and rhinestones. Slogan sweaters are also always a major part of her collections. „Mon Pull Rykiel“ might be a good start! Combine your look with a little beret plus platform shoes and the Parisian joie de vivre will be all yours for little money!

If you are not able to make it on Saturday, no worries please, the whole collection (except for the UNICEF bag) will be sold online.

LoL, Sandra

Miu Miu`s S/S 2010 Advertising Campaign

MiuMiu_ADV SS10_I

Have a look at Miu Miu`s new S/S 2010 advertising campaign shot in London by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. I love this fine line between the childlike and the womanly that is also evoked by the collection itself.


On the one hand sheer, body-conscious, even naked looks and on the other hand romantic, young aspects created by crystal embroideries and graphic prints with little dogs, cats, swallows and flowers. The accessories are extremely beautiful, to me the platform shoes in particular.


The American model Lindsey Wixon was the perfect choice for the advertising campaign. She has that perfect combination of power and vulnerability. The sixteen-year-old was rejected by several casting directors before signing the contract with Marilyn. The agency had a good eye. After the opening slot at the Prada show in Milan and the presentation of the last look on the Miu Miu runway in Paris, she has become the new shooting star. Her signature feature is her sweet very tiny mouth with incredibly full lips. We will see her in a lot of editorials in the near future.

For my Swiss readers, I recommend a visit to the new Miu Miu shops in Zurich and St. Moritz. Have fun exploring this beautiful collection!

Avatar Inspired Alexander McQueen S/S 2010


It is weekend time and I wanted to inspire you for a movie night out to see Avatar” in 3D directed by James Cameron. The science fiction epic blockbuster plays in the year 2154 on the distant planet of Pandora and seemed to be the inspiration for Alexander McQueen`s “Plato`s Atlantis” S/S 2010 collection.


The models on the catwalk looked so much like the Na`vi race in the movie. The colours green, brown and later on all shades of blue, the amazing digital prints and reptile patterns, all emerging from the sea were like the designer`s apocalyptic forecast.

Lady Gaga premiered her song “Bad Romance” at the show that was supposed to be live-streamed.  But the site crashed because of all the traffic that emerged after she had tweeted to her millions of fans about her newest release.


I could definitely not think of anyone better than her pulling off the techno and futuristic trends for next summer.  She strutted gorgeously in McQueen`s eccentric shoes (I love them!) that made the fashion world gasp when they appeared on the runway. Those towering platforms are a piece of art, deserving to be displayed. The legendary footwear gave the cybernetic look already a cult status.

Let`s capture the cobbled streets of Zurich in those heels- might be fun… at least for the ones watching us!

LoL, Sandra
