MILAN: The bright colors of Marni always remind me of a sunny day on a boat. The bright yellow life vest I put on when I am waterskiing or the zesty orange swim rings. Marni is the sunshine in my closet and of course the masterpiece of pattern mix with a modern twist.

MILAN: Looking at the Spring 2012 Jil Sander Collection makes me want to draw and sketch. Start your own sketch book today and use it as a visual diary. You will get better every day and drawing makes you look twice at things.

MILAN: Today I saw the Prada Spring 2012 fashion show and I felt like going right back to Capri for one more weekend of sunshine and a swim in the blue sea. Her choice of fabric and mix & match of colors bring you to a modern version of the 50s and 60s look. Wearing bright bold jewelry and shiny slick hair gives this look a strong edge.

A Red Coat & Plenty of Books

MILAN: Milan Fashion Week starts today and I am thinking of wearing a different red coat each night. A red coat is a statement, it makes you stand out, it is a classic and it gives you plenty of ideas to tell a story.
I will also visit my favorite bookstore in Milan, L’ARCHIVOLTO, has a good selection of magazines, monographs and books dealing with architecture, urban planning and decorative arts.

What Time is it?

NEW YORK: Take a look at your watch. Does it inspire you, make you smile, make you want to change your outfit? On Saturday I went to see THE BLUM SWATCH COLLECTION at the Philips de Pury auction house. My choice will be the DON’T BE TOO LATE watch in bright yellow which I will wear next spring together with my yellow Derek Lam summer dress I just saw at the spring / summer show during New York Fashion Week.


brings good news to you.
She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,
reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.



When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
