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
Cristian has a new watch – YAY! it is the ADVOLAT CITY BAUHAUS in white with chronograph. I have already shown you his other CITY BAUHAUS watch and the only difference is that this one is white and has a chronograph. read the previous blogpost here >>
this photo was taken at the VITRA SUMMER PARTY during ART Basel 2015 and I absolutely love his outfit.

the cool things about the ADVOLAT watches, besides being swiss design, are that they are A very comfy and B can be worn for day and night. In Cristians case we just change the watchband and the watch looks absolutely different. he has a more chunky genuine leather band with stiching for everyday and a sleek brown leather watchband for the more elegant days or nights like during ART Basel. with every watch you can buy an additional watchband to make your watch more versatile and in the end I think it is absolutely worth it.
I saw some beautiful watches in a window of a photo-shop when I was strolling thru Clarastrasse in Basel and I just had to see who and what was behind this company. in fact I did so and until todayI am in touch. it s a swiss company and there are many different watches. I am sure there is something nice for all of you. have a look.
CITY 80001/2-L2 (29/888)
I saw something nice for you! this simple watch is perfect for men and women. I have already introduced this watch brand in a previous post – read more here >> I am a big fan of the BAUHAUS design and therefor I love the shape and design of the CITY watch – simple and sleek!

so you might wonder why the watch looks different in the photo above – thats because I switched the wristband, instead of the black I attached a brown leather band. a quick simple thing makes a big change!
soon I will show you an outfit where you will see me wearing this gorgeous CITY watch. stay tuned! xx
a watch brand from BASEL – isn’t that amazing?
I recently discovered these gorgeous watches when I was strolling thru Clarastrasse in Basel. Next to the Basilisk photography shop there is a shopwindow with some pieces of their collection. It was the first time I have heard of ADVOLAT
and I really liked the fact that they are from Basel.
Let me tell you a bit more about ADVOLAT and their philosophy, thats what I found on their website:
“Switzerland is home to some of the best designers and makers of watches, Basel in Switzerland is home to the world’s biggest and most famous watch fair BaselWorld, from Basel comes ADVOLATOriginal, the latest Swiss brand of finest watchmaking:
ADVOLATOriginal. UNIQUE TIMEPIECES. STRICTLY LIMITED.
ADVOLATOriginal watches are strictly limited to a maximum of either 888 or 88 watches for every model worldwide, depending on the reference number. Every watch is unique and carries its individual number engraved on the caseback. Some models are completely Swiss Made. All have been handcrafted to the highest Swiss quality standards. All have been tested twice before delivery.”

I really like the BAUHAUS design CITY watch and the same watch can be worn differently – with a black watch strap or with a brown one. for CHF 49.00 you can purchase the brown leather watch strap and easily change it by yourself when ever you want. soon I will show you photos with the two different watch straps – a more elegant and a more casual version – stay tuned!
