A chess game at

For me, the morning is an inspiring and rejuvenating moment. From my living room overlooking Lake Geneva, I enjoy watching the sun rise with a coffee and my stylish, yet comfortable outfit: ecru cotton trousers, along with a grey wool and jersey hoodie.

I take advantage of this quiet moment to play a game of chess with my partner. Since I need all my concentration, I wear my Starck glasses. Their vintage look and elegant round shape, designed by Philippe Starck, are combined with cutting-edge technology that makes them light and flexible at 360°.

Thanks to their top-of-the-range progressive lenses these glasses are the perfect solution to appreciate both the spectacular view of the lake and the mountains, as well as to see up close and thus play the right moves: checkmate!

A drive in a car

I have a real passion for vintage cars, so I never miss an opportunity to go for a drive in my convertible car full of history, along the wine landscapes of Lavaux.

The sun is everywhere! To ensure optimal driving comfort and to avoid being dazzled, I wear my iconic 
Persol Steve McQueen sunglassesTheir tortoiseshell pattern and their resolutely retro aviator line harmonise perfectly with my outfit of the day: sand-coloured chino trousers and a light denim shirt. A casual style that is nonetheless elegant!

With their polarized progressive lenses, these glasses are an essential ally for safe and optimal driving, offering good intermediate vision as well as distance vision for admiring the landscape and enjoying the surrounding beauty. Let’s hit the road!

🌄  My advice for a nice drive: drive along the Lavaux terraces and stop to admire the sunset at Domaine Croix Duplex in Grandvaux.

A visit to my local record

Music plays an essential role in my daily life. While walking around my neighbourhood, I take the opportunity to visit the best record shop in Lausanne.

For what concerns my look, I opt for a retro rock outfit: a white t-shirt, straight cut light jeans, brown shoes, and my favourite brown leather jacket with an aged patina effect.

My Ralph Lauren glasses with their superior progressive lenses are essential for finding the best rock vinyl in the crates. Comfortable as well as minimalist, their sober look never goes out of fashion. Now, all I have to do is turn on the turntable to enjoy the authentic sound of vinyl!

💿 My favourite record shop: You Do it Right Vinyl Record – Rue Saint-Martin 38b, 1005 Lausanne.

As a 58-year-old father of four grown-up children, routine is not part of my daily life! In Lausanne, I lead a fast-paced life between my job in finance, friends and my many passions.

I have always liked to take care of my style, which reflects what interests me: what is chic, modern, and with a touch of vintage rock. I pay special attention to detail because I believe that elegance can be found in the simplest of items: a well-cut t-shirt, a leather belt, or a pair of glasses, of course.

I am always with my optical glasses or sunglasses: they are an integral part of my look! Sometimes they are more elegant and refined, other times they are more casual; I choose my glasses with care to make them match my outfits.
