H&M Fall 2012 – Women

8 HM_women_04

Last Thursday, the official H&M Fall 2012 press launch took place worldwide. Here’s your preview of the women’s lookbook and I also added some photos that I took in the showroom!

Isn’t this collection absolutely divine? The styling of the looks is amazing! For Fall 2012, H&M is all about “minimal meets maximal” featuring sculptural silhouettes and bold shapes packed with metallic accents, slit skirts, varsity-style jackets and leather corset belts, this collection is made for mixing and matching. The focus is on the textures and adding lots of costume jewelry to maximize minimal outfits. I am particularly loving the jeweled statement necklace and crystallized baseball cap – such a ’90s allure! What catches your eye first?

Key garments: Tailored coat, zippered-ankle slacks, oversized cable knit cardigan, bouclé sweatshirt, long-sleeved dress, collarless blouse jacket and printed leggings.

Key accessories: Costume jewelry, embellished shoulder pieces, beaded cap, concealed-platform hi-tops, elegant mules and beaded bags.

This collection is actually getting me looking forward to colder weather, I mean if it that is even possible as it is already cold outside…

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Bold New Vision

Bold New Vision

The beautiful sunny spring weather has put me in such a good mood and inspired me to wear bold prints and vibrant colours.

My look: Salamandra printed silk-crepe dress iconby Mary Katrantzouneon-pink wool-blend crepe biker jacket iconby Christopher Kane, blue scarf by Gucci, lace pumps by Christian Dior, bracelet by Anselm Reyle for Diorhandle bag by Versace and statement necklace by Gabriele Frantzen.




The  neon-pink wool-blend crepe biker jacket iconby Christopher Kane is such a versatile piece, one of my season’s favourites.


I am in love with Gabriele Frantzen‘s statement jewelry pieces that take every outfit to a new level of style. Her creations are now available at Saks Fifth Avenue and in Zurich at Gassmann among others.


Tropical fish, fields of flowers and crushed car sculptures were the inspirations behind Mary Katrantzou‘s highly acclaimed S/S12 collection, which took her signature aesthetic to new fashion heights. This precision-cut Salamandra printed silk-crepe dress is the perfect canvas for the designer’s explosive and unforgettable prints. Don’t you agree?


This bracelet is a collector’s piece. Designed by Berlin artist Anselm Reyle for Dior.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas 2011

image_image_new_119732_enMerry Christmas to all my readers around the world and even if you do not celebrate this holiday, I wish a you a wonderful end of the year season. One thing all fashionistas have in common is the desire to look stylish!

Here is my festive look for you. I am completely in love with these shoes by Alberto Guardini. The best gift for all make-up addicts… and the others, too. Available at Colette.

Let’s hope that you will get lots of fashionable presents.
To a wonderful holy night!

Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving to you! Here is a perfect look to celebrate in style. The colour combination of rust tones with red shades is divine and suits this festive autumn day amazingly.

The shift dress by Narciso Rodriguez is a classic piece for many years to come. The flower embellished shoes by Nina Ricci along with the stunning jewel-encrusted frame bag by Lanvin add the right amount of eyecatching drama to your outfit. Finish off your look with the bright statement necklace by Oscar de la Renta and vibrant earrings by Bottega Veneta for maximum impact. Being so tasty, there is no need to worry about the turkey.

Unfortunately, we do not celebrate Thanksgiving here in Switzerland like our dear friends over the ocean do and we do not have a Black Friday tomorrow.
In case you are not familiar with that term, Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving , traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season with many promotional, gorgeous sales. It is heaven on earth for shopaholics!

But no reason to be sad. Tonight here in Zurich, we will have for the first time a long shopping night. Most of the stores will be open until 10pm and will start their markdowns. Wow!

LoL, Sandra
