Anna Blachut

Hi, I’m Anna!

I was born in Lugano and raised in Geneva. I am passionate about fashion, art and design. I am a Swiss-based lifestyle blogger. I post daily on my Instagram @annaswissmermaid. Sharing style, fashion fun facts and my latest new discoveries.

What does Geneva represent for you?

For me Geneva is a bubble. A hub for watchmaking, banking and diplomacy. It is safe, functional and beautiful. It also has a bit of a “French Touch” in comparison to the rest of Switzerland. The city is a blend of traditional beauty and modern luxury. It’s also a melting pot of cultures which I find truly inspiring. It is actually rare to meet someone who is 100% from Geneva! Myself included, I am half Genevoise and half Polish. Another aspect of Geneva that strikes me is the quality of life you can have in the city at any age.

"Auer will forever be my favourite place to get coffee on weekends"

Do you have any secret spots in Geneva ?

Yes, my latest new discovery is this fantastic luxury store in old town called Vintage Garde-robe. The store has great vintage pieces and one-of-a-kind luxury items, punctuated with incredible vintage novelty Chanel decorations.

I love Mr and Ms Renou for the best croissants in Carouge. Whilst Auer will forever be my favourite place to get coffee on weekends. I use to go every Saturday as a kid with my parents. In terms of healthy food Acai concept, Molakai Fusion Poke and La Reserve’s healthy brunch are great. Ginger Donuts is amazing for those with a sweet-tooth. FRED by Fiskebar for a great cocktail in the winter.

I also like going to the “Nuit des Bains”. This is when contemporary art galleries open their doors at Quartier des Bains three times a year.

How would you describe Geneva in one sentence ?

Geneva is a multicultural bubble.

Where would you bring your friends to if they came to visit Geneva ?

Depending on the time of year I would vary where I would bring them. Probably Eat Me or Alma for some food and Bottle Brothers for some ambience in the evening.

Les Rue Basses for some shopping at a quick coffee at the Wild Girls cafe in Bongenie Grieder.

La cantinella for the best pizza in Old Town.

In the summer I would defiantly take them on a boat ride on the lake and a drink at the Metropole Hotel rooftop bar.

A classic Sunday brunch at Marcel’s or otherwise L’entrecôte for some delicious steak.
