My Look: Hello April!

The new month of April is here! This should mean warm weather, beautiful flowers and Easter! However, everything you love about April is not here yet. I was in Zurich for a quick stopover to repack my suitcases as I am off to Boston and it is snowing like crazy. I cannot stand it. Therefore I am posting a vibrant summery look that I cannot wait to wear soon again. Feathers are trending this summer, so get ready to adorn yourself with borrowed plumes.

My look: Ostrich feather embellished mini dress in blue, and ostrich feather pouch, both by The Attico, royal blue silk satin bow tie pumps by Aquazzura, crystal-embellished cuff and vintage blue sapphire earrings by CHANEL, and Tank Française 25.05mm medium 18-karat gold and stainless steel watchicon by Cartier.

My Look: Construction Girl

My house is still a big construction site, therefore I moved a few days to Baur au Lac to enjoy some dust-free time. However, it is coming along and I cannot wait to see the final result.

My Look: The Diana Tuck

A trend borrowed from Lady Di’s iconic off-duty style, pants tucked into knee-high boots, has already made the leap from the runway to the streets, and is sported today also on my legs. It gives your outfit such a cool and relaxed take on luxury. It is my styling trick if the pants are too long…

My Look: Thousand in One Ways Sweater

In January I told you about this must-have sweater for fall the first time (click here for the previous post). Rosie Assoulin‘s «Thousand In One Ways» sweater is named for its seemingly endless styling options – the sleeves can be shrugged off your shoulders, knotted neatly around your waist or detached completely, which turns it into a cropped camisole. It’s been cable-knitted in Italy from a luxuriously soft blend of wool and cotton and has a relaxed fit.

To shop click on the highlighted product description.

My Look: Glamour at the Pool

With all the safety precautions I am honestly so not in the mood for traveling somewhere. And to be honest, there is no need to with these beautiful sunny temperatures in Switzerland at the moment. I love my pool and garden so much. It is the best place to chill, relax and work. Dressing up at home is also fun … in this sense, I hope you are enjoying your Sunday!

My Look: Love CHANEL

I love CHANEL. Since I was a teenager, I have been crazy for the French Maison with its extremely eye-caring and sophisticated logo. CHANEL, one of the most luxurious and influential fashion brands, is with no doubt timeless. For my 18th birthday I got a CHANEL ensemble that I still wear and adore. It was Karl Lagerfeld expanding on the prestige and history of Coco’s achievements that made women around the globe crave for a piece of CHANEL. Now, with Virginie Viard at the helmet, the beautiful story continues… here you see me wearing some of my favorite Cruise 2020 pieces.

My look: Tweed jacket in lilac, light blue cotton top with bow, embellished leggings, brooch,  multicolored shopper, classic violet flap bag, chain belt, all by CHANEL (Cruise 2020), Venus satin pumps, bothicon by The Attico and Croco Tail sunglasses by Fendi, bracelets and heart necklace with diamond pavé in yellow gold by Cartier, Rose Céleste necklace in 18k yellow and white gold, diamond, onyx and mother-of-pearl, and Astro Dior aquarius necklace, both by Dior Fine Jewellery.

My Look: Omg!

OMG! Lilac – the shade, that interestingly enough, made a resurgence in winter, has been seen everywhere this season. If you don’t want to go for the head-to-toe look, combine the pastel hue with khaki for the ultimate sophistication. Put on a turban and you are ready to turn heads…

My look: Sequin-embellished mohair-blend cardiganicon by Alessandra Rich, leopard-print stretch-cady turbanicon by Dolce & Gabbana, leather tapered pantsicon, and Venus satin pumps, bothicon by The Attico, Multi Pochette Accessories in monogram canvas by Louis Vuitton, sunglasses by Fendi, Love bracelets, and Tortue 18-karat rose gold, alligator and diamond watch, both by Cartier, Diorette ring and earrings, both by Dior Haute Joaillerie.

Lilac

For some of us, lilac has been associated with many things, but not for long a time has it been rendered chic. Probably you are reminded of the colour of your first eye shadow once applied liberally at school or it’s the colour of your grandmother’s favorite dress. It’s the shade that brides sometimes dress their bridesmaids in if they don’t really like them.

Zara shelves before the lockdown last week – lilac allover.

However, last winter it has already been seen all over the runways in head-to-toe looks and this S/S 2020 season it has become the must-have colour (forget classic blue) – I swear. Pastel or neon hues are all enjoying a newfound popularity, but none are more pervasive than lilac. An evolved, more adult take on millennial pink, the trick to making it looking modern rather than old-fashioned and saccharine is all in the shape and colour combinations. Tomorrow, I will show you my favorite combo – so make sure to check back!
