This was one of the stunning looks we shot for L’Officiel Switzerland‘s launch issue. While Marco Grob photographed Patricia Schmid, I couldn’t resist to take some pics as well. She looked absolutely breathtaking in this tribal inspired outfit and made heads turn in front of the George V Hotel in Paris.

Pomellato’s Secret Treasure in Zurich

Pomellato Zurich

During the last days I showed you so much from my recent road trip through the US. But the country I live in, Switzerland, has a lot to offer as well. Before I left two weeks ago, Pomellato celebrated its store opening with a nice cocktail reception high above Zurich’s rooftops.

Can you imagine that this terrace (see photos below) is never open to the public? It is a real treasure hidden on top of the building.

If you visit the boutique, check out their latest collection: Sabbia by Pomellato in rose gold with brown diamonds, diamonds and black diamonds. So beautiful!

LoL, Sandra


Sabbia Collection
Rings starting at € 1980.-, Bracelet € 9845.-

This year, Pomellato‘s Nudo Ring celebrates its 10th anniversary. For the ad campaign, the Italian jeweler is again teaming with Tilda Swinton.

I have been loving the sleek jewels from the beginning. You can wear only one or stack them up to two or three, playing with the colours.
For its anniversary, Pomellato presents a bigger, stronger version of its iconic piece, featuring gems in bold tones, including London blue topaz, Madera quartz, amethyst, lemon quartz, along with a limited edition in olivine and mandarin garnet.


Rings in rose gold and white gold with blue London topaz, Madeira quartz, amethyst, prasiolite and lemon quartz, £ 2.020
