My Look: New Modern

The new modern: micro shorts in classic fabrics worn with a vest, a cropped blazer and knee boots. The perfect twist for a great fall outfit. Add a chain necklace for the ultimate style factor.

My Look: Arriving in Munich

Last Friday, I arrived in my happy place which is my old hometown Munich. Before the official start of Oktoberfest on Saturday, I went out with friends on Friday night wearing this quite daring dress. Unfortunately, it is always hard to find someone who is not only willing to take some photos and but also capable of doing so. This time, it was obviously a difficult task:-) – men can be so uncooperative – but I hope that you still enjoy this post.

My look: One-shoulder satin-trimmed crepe mini dress and feather capeicon, both by Balmain, black calf leather lace up Janis pumps by Saint Laurent, Satin Touch 20 denier stay-up stockings by Wolford, black and white grained leather bag with gold-tone metal details and single earring, both by Chanel.

My Look: Awesome Sequins

Yesterday, I introduced you to Dundas‘ high-octane glamour. Here you see me wearing one of his S/S 2019 runway dresses that opened the runway show in Paris in Saint-Tropez for a fun night out at L’Opéra. It’s cut from naturally stretchy tulle embellished with awesome sequins in a camouflage pattern to channel the designer’s «urban jungle chic» vision. It’s spliced with an embellished leopard-effect lace sleeve and has flattering ruching along one side.

My Look: Swiss Girl

It is official! I am a Swiss Girl. I couldn’t be happier to finally have received my Swiss passport and to be a double citizen of Germany, my birth place, and Switzerland, my home base.

Today marks Sechseläuten which I will be celebrating among dear friends for the first time as a citizen of Zurich. Following the parade of the “Zünfte” (guilds), the culmination of this popular tradition is the burning of winter in effigy, in the form of the “Böögg” (cognate to bogey), a figure of a snowman prepared with explosives.

My Look: French Cancan

Friday’s dress code «Parisian Chic – Je Ne Regrette Rien» for the amazing  ASW Winter Weekend in Gstaad was so much fun. I went through my closet and put together some vintage and new pieces for this Cancan-style outfit. The tights incorporated excessive glitz that you cannot see so well on the pictures. I hope that you like it as much as I do.

My look: Vintage bustier with a theatrical Parisian print of the late 19th century by Dolce & Gabbana, stretch-knit high-waisted panties by Prada, Cassandre small suede shoulder bag by Saint Laurent, burlesque can-can style boots by Louis Vuitton, feather boa by Diorgrape colored feather broochicon by Christopher Kanefeather-embellished velvet headband by Prada, Jennifer glitter net tightsicon by Wolford, Eiffel tower pearl earringsmulti-strand pearl body chain necklace and lace sleeves, all by Chanel, rose diamond ring by Piaget.

My Look: Crucial

In my opinion, mixing and matching is crucial to a fashionable look. One night at the Gstaad Palace, I went for acid yellow, leopard print and check – all in one! I hope you like it as much as I do.

My Look: Hublot Wiesn

This week, after my post about the amazing experience with Hublot at the Oktoberfest, I got many compliments about my Dirndl look. You might be surprised but this outfit doesn’t include one single traditional Bavarian piece, every item comes from a runway collection. Over the years, I have collected so many fashion must-haves, that I love to style in different and unexpected ways. As I always say, keep everything if you have space, there will always be a time to wear those pieces again…, I am sure that you will be surprised to see the years in which I bought them.

My look: Bavarian janker jacket (F/W 2002) and corset-style dress (F/W 2010), both by D&G Dolce Gabbana, embellished leather choker (F/W 2002) and brooch (F/W 2010), all by Dolce & Gabbana, feather apron (S/S 2005) and lace-up leather boots, both by Prada (F/W 2001), plissé leather cuffs (F/W 2016) by Gucci, small classic black handbag with gold-tone metal chain by Chanel (F/W 1995), Venezia lace stay-ups (F/W 2003) by Wolford.

My Look: Hato Opening

Sandra_Bauknecht_Hato_Opening_Zuirchc_November_2015

Zurich has a new hot spot. Last week, HATO opened its doors at Brandschenkestrasse 20 (reservations +41 44 280 1880, zurich @hato-restaurants.com). The restaurant’s chef Nathan Dallimore brings the bold flavors of «Fine Asian Cuisine» and fresh sushi to every dining experience. Before today’s official start, I had the honor to try all the culinary highlights during an intimate lunch. The food is absolutely excellent, my favorite is the vegan «Soya Duck Salad» (see photo below). The interior is stylish and intimate at once, curtains can separate certain areas. There is also a special LALIQUE room for  private occasions. On Thursday, the VIP opening party took place… enjoy the pics.

My look: Wool twill jacketcutout leather platform pumps and small California leather bucket bag with starsicon, all by Saint Laurent, scalloped bandage dress by Hervé LégerSatin Touch 20 denier stay-up stockings by Wolford, tulle and pearl necklace by Lanvin and diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery.
