  In my previous post on the H&M Studio AW16 collection, I featured the blue striped velvet slit dress which was more of an evening dress-up piece than a daywear.  Let me show you how I combine (unconventionally) other items of the line for a comfortable day-outfit.  Usually, you put your lingerie under your top, eg. shirt.  Again,… Read More »

  For music lovers and performers, the Montreux Jazz Festival (MJF) is a can’t-miss event in the wonderful month of July at a pretty lakeside location.  It is very much a fixture in my summer calendar.  I attend concerts (expensive!) or simply immerse in the happy crowd to catch free open performances and soak in… Read More »

  Zalando has been sharing DIY videos on, for example, how to customize shorts.  That got me inspired to create one myself – how to customize a summer hat!  In collaboration with Zalando, I share here this new video.  If you want to re-create this DIY, this is what you will need: A summer hat –… Read More »

  Twice a year, H&M presents a Studio collection created by their in-house designers. This H&M Studio AW16 collection shows a distinctively strong character, and is possibly the most original we’ve seen.  The feminine silhouette is given a new shape with an accent on the shoulders and waist. Accessories take on theatrical dimensions, eg. gaucho hats in oversized modern shapes and statement… Read More »

  I am not sure if this is typical of millennials or just symptomatic of our consumer age – when I like something, I use it intensively for a short period of time. In music, for example, I can replay a song over and over again for an entire week.  Not surprisingly, I tire of it… Read More »

How to Wear Stripes

  Stripes create optical effects and are like a double-edged sword.  They can be embellishing or unflattering depending on how you wear them. So what are the dos and don’ts? FR Les rayures donnent un double effet d’optique. Elles peuvent être à la fois flatteuse ou à l’opposé ne pas du tout mettre en valuer… Read More »

  I have talked about Ouchy, the lakeside neighborhood I really like in my hometown Lausanne. The entertaining Quartier du Flon is another favorite. Once an abandoned industrial site, it is now teeming with restaurants, bars, cafés (I have posted about Mango Deck in Blaast Places), a cinema complex and shops. To show you a… Read More »

  I traveled to Berlin last Monday for an intense 24-hour overnight stay in the city.  The occasion? A preview of the first Bread&Butter by Zalando celebration taking place from 2nd to 4th September 2016.     Bread&Butter was a well-known independant B2B fair hosted during the Berlin Fashion Week.   This year, Zalando has taken the traditional trade show to a more participative “trend show… Read More »

A Good Feeling Overall

  I am so grateful and I thank you a thousand times for supporting me in the recent Piaget’s Best Possession Style contest to select their brand ambassadresses for Switzerland. I recently attended a party held by Piaget in Geneva to celebrate the close of the contest.  Guess what?  I was awarded one of the two prizes! Piaget is lining up exciting… Read More »
