Recently I visited my first ever Yoga class, something I had been contemplating for a while now, but never really pulled through. Until I got an invitation by the guys at Lululemon for a Yoga class at my favourite gym in town.

If one night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble, two weeks in Cape Town will make a weary man happier than Leo at this year’s Oscars.

For the second year in a row I have been invited to one of the most prestigious events in Zurich; the Piaget Polo Open 2015. More sophisticated characters may question the reasoning for the invitation to such an illustrious group. Me? I do not care for one second if I got the invitation by mistake or not, I just look forward to a fun afternoon with a delicious catering, action on the field and free food.

 

Tada! Although my new suit arrived only three weeks after having taken my measurements, I haven’t been able to pick it up until just recently. Of course I could have had it delivered to my office or home (included in the service), but picking up a suit is like picking up your new car from the showroom somehow.  You need to take your time and do it personally.

If you don’t feel like wearing a suit or if you are attending an event after work, you may need to tweak your attire to fit into both worlds. The trick? Business on top, party on the bottom. Ambiguity at its best.

The IRO store Zurich invited last Saturday together with Bolero magazine to participate in a photo contest for the fashion session #4. The idea was to put together an outfit from a selected number of clothes, and have a photographer take a picture in an outfit with the slogan “red carpet style”. Bolero selected the top 5 outfits and now the winner will be elected in an online voting (–> http://www.boleromagazin.ch/iro-red-carpet-voting).

The first rays of sun have finally arrived and the city is awakening from its winter sleep and foremost depression. It is time to change slowly into summer gear. Layer up, because winter is a sneaky bitch – the  moment you step into the shadow you will freeze, therefore be prepared. A light down jacket will do the trick and it is so slim that you can wear it even under your suit jacket if necessary (see my mix and match article). The one from Duvetica on the picture is not only warm, but is also suitable to hide from evil eyes.
