thank you very much for inviting me to the BAUHAUS-INSPIRED DESIGN event at the HUGO BOSS store in Basel. It was super nice to meet the Hugo Boss Team and I got to see lots and lots of nice pieces from the fall/winter collection and also some really nice pieces from the BOSS WOMEN capsule collection.
the food and beverages were very nicely served and tasted delicious. the water was served in those fancy vintage water dispensers, I have no clue what the correct term for that is. in case you know please leave a comment below. I heard that they were especially rented from a collector just for that very event. I had a very tasty refreshing home made lemonade, a seasonal mushroom soup and delicious chocolate, that I never thought I would like as it was made with olive oil. I was really happy that I was brave enough to try it – I think I had at least three or four pieces. it was delicous, big UP for the catering from ZH!
so a couple of weeks ago I was invited to see the mechanical ballet and the new BAUHAUS exhibition at the VITRA design museum. in case you wanna know more about it click here >>
today I had a look at the catalogue of the exhibition and I saw lots of nice things. the book is also great to present heels, check out those gorgeous blue heels – they are to die for!
now these are some of the pieces that I like from the current fall/winter collection. I totally like the powdery wool winter coat, the red dress from the window and my biggest favorite: the blue heels.
and now lets talk about the gorgeous fall/winter capsule collection by JASON WU for BOSS WOMEN. there were some of the pieces in the shop to have a look at, unfortunately this collection will not be sold in Basel. but I m sure that the ladies who wanna buy something from this collection, they will find a way to get it in a shop that sells it : ) more about the shops and where to find the collection on the HUGO BOSS website.
these two pieces are inspired by ANNI ALBERS the famous german/american textile artist and printmaker. the skirt and the coat are very much related to a carpet that ANNI once designed. JASON WU designed the BOSS WOMEN capsule collection and they found an italian family business that made the tweed for them. another stunning piece are the black, grey, orange boots EMERALD BOOTIE F with a very special detail on the heel that I unfortunately forgot to capture but you can see them here >> I was only able to find the black and white ones but you can really see the nice detail on the heel.
thank you for the give away – I love it and I just made some space on my coffee table. it is indeed the perfect coffee table book. that was it from the event in Basel. X
big chunky boots – I love it and I am totally aware that this is not everyones cup of tea. I found these on SALE last year and I can not remember where I have found them and there is no label in or outside the shoes. a combination that always works for me is black and red – they go very nicely together and complement eachother.
another thing is wearing too many accessories and this is actually hardly ever gonna happen to me as I barely wear too much jewelry or any jewelry at all. so in fact this is something to work on – wearing a bit more accessories 🙂 but when I am wearing such chunky red boots I feel that it would be too much for an every day outfit.

so I met my friend on saturday morning to take some photos for the blog and as soon as we where at the rhein it started to snow heavily 🙂 and ooh boy it also started to wind and I was freezing my ass off. but nevertheless I wanted to show you two new lovely things. first of all my super awesome mesh jersey shirt and my stylish navy wool hat. both are swiss brands – the shirt is swiss design by lola FRED and the hat is swiss made by RISA and heidi.com <3

aww.. I think this is definitely one of the great things about winter time – I get to wear my wintery leggings with fancy patterns. I got this pair years ago at H&M and there are many places where you can find similar pairs.
that is something rather unusual for me. I hardly ever wear a complete black outfit. and it is funny that even when I try to wear a complete black outfit I still find one or two things that are not black – today it is my light grey tights.

unfortunately I couldnt go to Paris this year to visit the fashionweek as I am not feeling too well at the moment. I am very much looking forward to going next year in february/march. so today I am showing you this gorgeous blue silk dress by ACNE that I paired with the gorgeous new shoes that I have found at the fashionffish outlet from NAVYBOOT and the awesome silver clutch and the beige teddy from the DIESEL sample sale in Zurich. thank you Thomas for taking the photos!
wow, so I have checked my wardorbe and I found out that the last two months I was shopping a lot at ESPRIT. As I previously mentioned, the store in Basel is one of the most beautiful shops because of its amazing stairs coming down in the center of the store. I will try to take some photos when I m there next so you can see what I mean.
so what I wanna share among you is that ESPRIT has great SALE prizes and that it sometimes is worth to gamble and wait with purchasing and only buy it when its on SALE – of course you risk that your size or color might be gone. I was always very lucky with this system, especially at ESPRIT store Basel. As you can see I found many black and white skirts, black boots and fauxlether shorts a fancy two color dress and a white top. All these things can be combined together – thats key to me!
some of the pieces are not only wearable in summer but also for fall and spring! and I dunno about you but among my friends ESPRIT had some sort of a “Grandma-Shop” touch and by showing you my shopping haul I think its very clear that this aint the case!
so, it was time to check out London Fashion Week and I can tell u I had a lot of fun. I arrived in London on February 13, so I had one day to prepare myself for the next day, the start of the London Fashion Week. I stay in the beautiful Citizen M boutique hotel at Southbank. I will show you the hotel in a upcoming post. so, lets get back to fashion, the main fashionshows are hosted at SOMERSETHOUSE. Nearest tube station is temple. I arrived there and had to stay in line to pick up my presscard inorder to enter the shows, showrooms and medialounges. once I was registered I had to go and meet my friend Ania, who works at Paul Smith inside Royal Exchange. She took the photos above and we went for a quick coffee.
