Nina Ricci – Les Envies for Pre-Fall 2013


Nina Ricci reinvents house classics and offers looks with a resolutely pop allure.
I am in love with the pre-fall 2103 collection, for which the French Maison once again reconciles dressing and desire.


This savy new line offers an ideal wardrobe of basics composed of “must-haves” such as little dresses, knits, blouses and jackets that bear the house’s hallmark codes. Ideal for day, this collection called “Les Envies” also interprets Nina Ricci’s signature colors and materials. The result is a subtle palette that blends sorbets with shots of colours and ultra-feminine materials such as tweed and stretch lace.


By turning basics unto desirable and timeless pieces, Nina Ricci lets women convey a modern, urban style that dovetails with their flair for innoncent provocation.

This collection will be available in stores this month. The first pieces have already arrived online at NET-A-PORTER, iconSAKS FIFTH AVENUE and MYTHERESA.
In Zurich exclusively available at Modestrom.

Gucci Resort 2013

Gucci Resort 2013

Anne Hathaway grabbed attention yesterday at the European Premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in London in a stunning  shimmering gown from Gucci’s Resort 2013 collection. The long-awaited conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is released worldwide tomorrow.

Speaking of Gucci Resort 2013, Frida Giannini seeked inspiration from a glorious 60s and 70s inspired getaway in Capri. Filled with sophisticated and elegant silhouettes, the designer plays with the iconic Flora print. The colours are divine, from vintage-like sorbet shades to earthy tones of beige, brown and black. Embroideries and embellishments on the neckline resemble a summer bouquet. I would love to have every single look!

It is so Bon Chic. Bon Genre!

LoL. Sandra

My new shoe obsession: The confident colourblock OBSESSION pumps from the inimitable house of Yves Saint Laurent. I am head over heels for those leg-lengthening mega-platforms with removable triple ankle-wrap straps to convert into a sling-back, new in this week.


I couldn’t resist and got them in the all-suede version in brass, teal, light grey, black cherry and purple. Available at

And what do you think of this amazing colour combination below?

Louis Vuitton S/S 2012 Ad Campaign

DEI 440x285 F-TRANS2 INTL_a

Here is your sneak preview of the Louis Vuitton advertising campaign for S/S 2012 that captures the essence of this amazing collection perfectly and that is definitely among my favourites. It was shot by Steven Meisel who did also the Prada S/S 2012 campaign.

“The spirit of our S/S 2012 collection is reflected beautifully in this new ad campaign,” says Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Marc Jacobs. “All the tone and texture of the collection – the lightness, the prettiness, the broderie anglaise, the millefeuille layers of organza – are recreated in these wonderful images by Steven Meisel. It is all very soft and very sweet, yet at the same time very bold and very graphic.”

In an intriguing echo of the previous season, the Louis Vuitton S/S 2012 advertising campaign once again takes up the narrative of the fashion show, continuing it from the point where the woman steps daintily off the pure white fairground carrousel and into the pastel pink paradise of a nearby ice cream parlor.

Up-and-coming models Daria Strokous and Kati Nescher are the lucky pair chosen to sample the parlor’s assorted delights while wearing some of the season’s standout looks, including romantic broderie anglaise dresses, ladylike shifts embellished with strass, studs and 3D flowers, and sorbetcoloured suits with white lace collars. Accessories, too, feature prominently in the nine visuals, foremost among them the Lockit bag in sheer nylon voile that opened the runway show, the Speedy in powdered, whitewashed crocodile, and the pointed-toe mules in pastel shades with metal toe caps, dainty laces or rows of tiny buttons.

“The whole ambiance is very pretty, very special and very magical,” says Marc Jacobs, “and I’m sure it will look just delicious and fresh come the spring.”

The Louis Vuitton S/S 2012 advertising campaign will break in the February 2012 issues of magazines worldwide.
