Black & white a new classic!

As you have probably noticed from my latest posts my love with stripes is not set to stop, in fact come Spring the madness gets only worse.. well, at the end of the day for me now stripes especially black and white ones are now to be considered a new classic and I love them! This particular top I got recently from H&M and I paired with a new long grey cardigan also from H&M and my new Zara biker's style trousers. They have a great style and fit and I am sure I will wear them a lot.
It was also time to break into my new Jeffrey Campbell ankle boots which I got in the sales back in January but haven't yet worn. They are really comfy and the leather feels so luxurious, I love them! They are an absolute must-have!
The weather was freezing cold in Geneva last week so excuse my frozen face..but at least my make up was on point thanks to the MAC Cosmetics team in Geneva which did a great job on me using some products from the new MAC Charlotte Olympia collection.

The new Maserati Levante is here!

I had the great pleasure to attend the press reception for the new Maserati Levante at the Geneva International Motorshow where I  truly enjoyed experiencing the new Maserati SUV in an exclusive setting.
Maserati has chosen Geneva International Motorshow to introduce its first SUV: the Levante. The name is inspired by the warm Mediterranean wind which can change from a light breeze to an irresistible force mirroring the character of the Levante.

The Levante goes to complete the Maserati range combined with the Quattroporte, Ghibli, Gran Turismo and Gran Cabrio. Design, exclusivity and performance are the key characteristics of the Levante, with its distinctive Italian style and Maserati iconic design features.
The new Maserati Levante offers outstanding performance both on road and offroad. The interior has been created with the finest materials from premium leather to Ermenegildo Zegna silk.
The Levante is an SUV like no other, embodying the passion, the sophisticated engineering and exclusivity that have distinguished every vehicle engineered and crafted by Maserati in the heart of Italy since it was founded in 1914.

MAC Charlotte Olympia pre-launch event!

Last Wednesday I was invited to the pre-launch event of MAC Charlotte Olympia in Geneva. During the event I had chance to have a look beforehand at the collection as well as having some make-up done with some of the products from the limited edition collection.
I was very excited to see the collection as it all looked so glam and fab! This collection puts focus on the lips with the bold lipsticks and lip mixes all in the red tones. The eyes are left more natural with the Cream Colour Bases in the shades of bronze and brown, Liquid Brown Liner and Zoom Lash Mascara also in brown. Just like I had done on me, with the focus on the lips with the beautiful Retro Rouge Lipstick and the Cream Colour Bases on the eyes for a true old Hollywood glamour.
And have you seen how beautiful the Nail Lacquers look? Wow, they look so glam! I told you how much I liked the make-up bag so of course I had to get it! All the packaging has Charlotte's signature gold spider's web and clear lucite and they look great! Get your hands on the eyelash curler or the compact mirror, they will be a glamourous addition to any make up bag!
If you still haven't got anything from this collection you better hurry as it is Limited Edition!

ADIDAS NMD Gallery by A/SH

Last week I was invited to a brunch with Adidas for their NMD Gallery by A/SH in Zurich.  
A wonderful exhibition for the release of the new NMD sneakers in collaboration with A/SH artfashion and some wonderful Swiss artists such as Lauretta Suter, Jonas Hegi, Kevin Högger and Nadja Stäubli.
 All paid tribute the NMD in different ways: Kevin Högger with his black & white art wall poster, Jonas Hegi with  a breathtaking video, Nadja Stäubli with her pictures and Lauretta Suter with her editorial.
We also had chance to view all the new NMD releases, from the Chukka  inspired by a staple in fashion classic the desert boot to the City Sock in Primeknit and the NMD Runner models there is really one for everyone.
Under the motto the past empowers the future referencing progressive Adidas styles like the Micro Pacer, the Rising Star and the Boston Super the NMD gives archival elements a modern context with breakthrough technology.
Micro-engineered boost and Primeknit fabrications meet a bold visual language that pays homage to innovation moments from the brand's collective memory.
The result is a fearless silhouette that defines the shape and style of today.
