Hollywood in Zurich


Tonight, I am invited by Tommy Hilfiger and the Zurich Film Festival and I couldn’t be any happier about it. Each year, Hollywood comes to Zurich. In 2013, it was Harrison Ford (for the previous post click here) and in 2014, it was John Malkovich who joined Tommy Hilfiger and Daniel Grieder, CEO Tommy Hilfiger, on this special occasion.

Time flies and I realized that I have never posted the pictures from last year. So here you go. Even 12 months later, it hasn’t lost any of its glamour.

Stay tuned for the photos of tonight. I promise it won’t take another year…

LoL, Sandra

Trois Pommes – The Store Opening


Last Wednesday, Trudie Götz and her team celebrated the opening of her two new concept stores, TROIS POMMES – THE STORE, one for women on Bahnhofstrasse 18 and one for men on Bahnhofstrasse 12 in Zurich. The new three-story shop for ladies is filled with everything a fashionista’s heart desires, the must-have pieces from well-known designers such as Givenchy, Saint Laurent and Peter Pilotto among others. For this special occasion, jewelry designer Harumi Klossowska and cashmere guru Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman had flown in to get to know their Zurich customers. Great concept, amazing interior, two thumbs up!

The Elder Statesman – Cashmere from L.A.

Being in Los Angeles, you might not think immediately of cashmere and blankets. But funnily enough sunny California can get chilly, believe me, I know what I am talking about right now as I am here. One of the best unstated luxury brands for cashmere products is The Elder Statesman, founded in L.A. in 2007 by Greg Chait.

The Elder Statesman

Each garment is made in the USA by a team of skilled craftsman using special cashmere felting and hand looming techniques. Looking for sumptuous knitwear with borrowed-from-the-boys appeal, here you go!

You can shop THE ELDER STATESMAN online at FARFETCHicon, NET-A-PORTER or in Switzerland at TROIS POMMES THE STORE.

Sandra’s Closet Is Finally Back Online

Sandra's Closet is Bak Online-Sandra Bauknecht in Givenchy Fox Cape

My dearest readers, first of all thanks so much for all your lovely messages telling me that my blog went offline. I am very happy that Sandra’s Closet is finally back online.

One week ago, while I was working on a post, all of a sudden my screen turned white and I had no access any longer. First I thought that I encountered a technical problem but unfortunately somebody hacked my blog.

Since almost five years, I had been blogging on a daily basis. You have no idea how helpless I felt but as I was leaving to Ibiza the next day, I saw it as a chance to relax, to really go on holidays. Here on this magical island, many things have happened and I have to say sometimes you need this little wake-up call to finally see things clear again.

Now, all the issues are solved and I am back on track to share with you my favorite trends, stories and special moments in my life.

LoL, Sandra

The invite said  “… to be irreplaceable you always must be different…”. Trois Pommes is exploring new avenues. Trudie Götz, owner of the famous Swiss shops, opened last Thursday the doors of Zurich’s first concept store TROIS POMMES THE STORE. Since many years, she has a nose for upcoming talents and the most important designers of the season.

On Bahnhofstr. 12, you can shop now Stella McCartney, Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Rodarte, Altuzarra and many more. Accessories by Myriam Schaefer and Maison Takuya add this certain touch of luxury and uniqueness. Moreover, you can indulge in the amazing beauty line Zelens by Dr. Mark Lens who was also present at the opening. I like!

LoL, Sandra
