Remember our post about MCM's Flagship Boutique Opening in Switzerland? It was quite a night! Two weeks ago we celebrated MCM's Grand Opening in beautiful Zurich with amazing VIP's, MCM's extraordinary Chairperson & Chief Visionary Officer as well as celebrities like Jimi Blue Ochsenknecht, Fiona Hefti, Steffi Buchli, Fabienne Louves & Sandra Bauknecht with Zurich's sunny-side-up to boot. It that wasn't enough 'glam, we even attended the first MCM Blogger Makeover in this beautiful city!
I mean, some of you might think that events like this one weren't a big deal for us as we're travelling the world since we started to work in fashion and launched our very own blog. Think again. We were as excited as little children right before their birthdays and started to think about what to wear at least three days before take-off to Zurich!
The mission? Being dressed (without taking it over the top), and looking glamorous without feeling uncomfortable. Here in Berlin, evening styles are a bit different- It's more about individuality and personal style rather than pencil skirts & high heels to the max. So we had to combine both: our Berlin-inspired styles with the elegance of Switzerland's evening trends. My style-solution: I found the beautiful MCM Nuovo L Croco Clutch in my closet (it saved my life as well as my outfit!)
Designed as a reinterpretation of MCM's highly-successful Vintage Croco Line, the Nuovo Croco Collection is designed for elegance, simplicity & style. Handcrafted with original cow hide and croco-embossed leather, our latest collection features two-tone colouring, ideal for business & casual wear. Also, the Nuovo Croco Collection exudes poise, perfect for style-enthusiasts & the urban glitterati alike - exactly what I needed for a successful appearance during the Grand Opening.
This is how I styled myself:
As an MCM Blogger Ambassador, I chose to go for an all-in-all very clean and down-to-earth-look in order to give the celebrities and VIP's we invited the priority. (So I had to look appropriate but not too dressed up.)
At first wearing a silk blouse and a black pants might sound slightly boring, but wait - I couldn't resist to add some special highlights. I'm in love with the unusual shape of my trousers and the golden details of my shoes, which were the perfect match to the star accessory of my outfit: the MCM Nuovo L Croco Clutch!
The red croco-dream was my eye-catching, outfit-completing highlight. Red, red, red in combination with a palette of calm basic colours - one thing that wasn't to missed: Matching lipstick. One, two, three, ready!
Here we go:
Something I also need to mention is that this clutch is more than meets the eye - it was a space-miracle! My capacious-companion offered way more space than expected, and could even double-up as a clutch as well as a classic handbag. So classy, elegant and cute at the same time. My perfect match for perfect days and nights.
Last but not least, here's another snapshot with Sarah Jane and I just before we left the hotel for the Grand Opening in Zurich. She wore one of my favourites: The First Lady Tambourine in sunny yellow. Love, big time!
lots of love,
