• Creative industries reinventing timeless design

    Last June, I was invited to attend the famous Vitra Summer Party during the Swiss art fair, ArtBasel. The Vitra campus is located at the border of Switzerland in the city of Weil am Rhein in Germany. It was a stunning late afternoon when the sun becomes so powerful that it starts to burn. I’ve been to the campus several times, to witness exhibitions at the Vitra Museum designed by Frank Gehry as well as the Vitra House, where they expose their offering, from design pieces to smaller decoration products. The campus abounds of architectural and design gems. Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid and, Prouvé to mention a few, built buildings…

  • WHEN A COUCHE BECOMES THE TRAVEL REFERENCE

    LAST WEEK I VISITED PARIS WITH MY DEAR FRIEND MARIE. PARIS WAS CROWDED OR AT LEAST THE HOTELS WERE ALL BOOKED OUT. INDEED, THE FAMOUS FRENCH TENNIS TOURNAMENT ROLAND GARROS WAS HAPPENING ON THE SAME WEEK/WEEKEND AND THERE WERE OTHER FAIRS TAKING PLACE AROUND AND IN PARIS. AS I LOVE DESIGN, I THOUGHT OF BOOKING US AN HOTEL WITH A SPECIAL LOBBY, AT LEAST TO ME. THE NEW HOTEL LE VOLTAIRE LOCATED IN LE 11EME ARRONDISSEMENTS, A LOVELY NEIGHBORHOOD NORTHWEST FROM LE MARAIS AND VERY CLOSED TO THE PLACE DE LA BASTILLE, HAS A BEAUTIFUL COUCH IN ITS LOBBY. ONE OF MY FAVORITE SWISS BRAND, DE SEDE, DESIGNS INCREDIBLE SOFA.…

  • PARIS, RUINART & VIK

    A month ago I had the chance to travel to Paris and Reims with Ruinart, the oldest (1729) and famous champagne Maison. It was a dreamy experience as Ruinart is definitely my favorite champagne not only to sip but also to learn from. Indeed, every year Ruinart collaborates with an artist who creates and interprets his vision of the champagne house and its domain through several artworks. This year, Vik Muniz, the Brazilian sculptor famous for his unorthodox choices of material for his art compositions was chosen and revealed as the Ruinart’s artist 2019. After checking-in into the beautiful Hôtel National des Arts et Métiers in the 3ème arrondissement de…

  • A R I Z O N A

    I am thrilled to share with you my collaboration with PROENZA SCHOULER and their fragrance ARIZONA. I love Proenza Schouler, from the designer duo of Jack and Lazaro and their story to each prêt-à-porter collection. Proenza Schouler is a clothing, accessory and now fragrance New Yorker label. Designers Jack & Lazaro met at Parsons and worked on their final thesis together, which became PROENZA SCHOULER. Proenza Schouler is an incredible brand, which unfortunately in Switzerland is not as big as it’s in the US. You can find a small selection of stunning Proenza Schouler shoes at Jelmoli in Zürich but a very little selection. For spring 2018, Proenza Schouler launched…

  • Un voyage à Bordeaux Aux Sources de Caudalie

      It has been a while that I have not been to a spa as splendid as Les Sources de Caudalie. Located in the countryside of Bordeaux you will fell in love with this place. Let me draw you the picture; drive 15 minutes away south from the city center of Bordeaux, and you will enter a magical scenery full of vineyards and castles. The region of Bordeaux (Gironde) is famous for their red wine. Almost every wine estate possesses its own castle, or vice versa. It’s a beautiful region where nature and wine will make you daydream. I highly recommend you to visit some wine estate to try some…

  • Took off to NYC one year ago

    I have not really shared more of my voyage in New York, I guess I wanted to keep it for myself. My Instagram feed also changed a bit and I was mostly working or discovering the city, then the blog was not a priority anymore. 14.05.17 was a decisive date for me, that was the day I took off for my internship in New York. Or in other words my dream internship in my dream city. Indeed, I was going to work at one of my favorite label of all time The Row. In addition, to enter the very closed Fashion circle, I was going to spend some time in…

  • Côté make-up & skin care

    It’s been a long time since I have posted. For those who don’t know I’ve recently started videos more and more – let’s be honest here, it’s difficult but so interesting to explore! I love it while hating it at the same time – it’s like directing the mini vision you have in your head and turn it into reality – however editing take quite some time. Anyways, I am learning and I will keep on doing so as well as publishing this article. Beauty and skin care have taken a huge part into my daily life. I want to share here my (current) favorites. I put current in bracket cause…

  • Two fall obsessions

    OMG! I have been super duper busy, and it’s not over at all! I mean it is great! I only had 4 days of post-New York depression. No! I’m kidding, but you know this feeling when you come back from holidays and get back to your routine and then you’re missing your holiday-life, now you see what I mean, right? So, since I just moved in with Forti and we got our dream apartment in the best neighborhood in Zürich, I’ve been busy with the blog slash videos, the move, university stuff (or mostly commuting time) and keep on being social (at least a bit ;) haha). As I love love…

  • Came back with a new color

    Is color the new makeup? That’s what I’ve heard! So, I got back from NYC and here I am back to my student life in between Zürich, Lucerne, and Lausanne. However, this time I do have purple slash pinkish hair! Yes, I did it! Hairdressers always told me that my hair is too dark to dye or even worse to bleach. If I would do it, I would highly damage them. I did an ombre six years ago, back when I did have long hair, but I never touched the roots. In the past years, I wanted to go blond, pink, grey and other in between pastel colors. I just never…

  • Two weeks left

      I cannot believe it, or maybe I don’t want to believe it! I have two weeks left in NYC…what a drama! I don’t feel like leaving at all. Work is great, the team is amazing, the city has still so many places to be explored, and of course my friends here. I know.. what a bitch! Nooo, don’t get me wrong here, I’m happy to go back to my family friends and love Forti, as well as to be back in the comfort of Switzerland and to finally move in Zueeeeri. I mean this is New York City and The Row that I’m talking about! Just my Dream City and…
