Panos Emporio débuts new tagline; Kiwi jewellers honoured; and Lucire’s latest features

Panos Emporio

Panos Emporio, as it expands its clothing line from its core swimwear, will début a new tagline that ties together everything it has done in the last quarter-century: ‘Dare to be human’.
   The new tagline was conceived to encompass the brand’s ideas of elegant design, its desire to push the envelope—which it has successfully done in swimwear—and its social conscience.
   Speaking of swimwear, Anita Talbert’s Miami Swim report appears now in full online, as do several articles you may have missed: Megan Gale’s L’Oréal ads, Lola Saab looking back at the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the Met, and Ian MacKintosh’s interview with illustrator Gerardo Larrea.
   Sopheak Seng takes an in-depth look at the Mister show from New Zealand Fashion Week—the one where they got a standing ovation—while Lola Saab begins her New York Fashion Week features with the Argentine Designers’ joint show.
   Finally, Lucire wishes to recognize the jewellery designers who were recognized at the New Zealand Jewellery Show last month.


Top Primavera, by Lucas Ebbeke. Above Timekeeping, by Sarah Walker-Holt.

   Papakura-based Sarah Walker-Holt’s Timekeeping, winner of the contemporary section of the New Zealand Jewellery Show Design Awards, is a pendant made using wooden kitchen utensils, firewood, garden twine and nuts and bolts.
   ‘The solutions Walker-Holt used to construct her piece are not accidental, but in fact are the result of careful decision-making. The æsthetic seems to come out of a DIY vernacular, and assemblage of parts reflects a resourceful keen eye and hand,’ said the judges.
   The fine jewellery section saw Auckland’s Lucas Ebbeke win for Primavera, which organizers described as ‘a fine jewellery flower ring that transforms at the flick of a hidden mechanism into a pendant studded with almost $30,000 worth of sapphires and diamonds.’
   Judges stated, ‘Lucas Ebbeke’s ring that transformed into a pendant was the clear winner. The design, finish and technical skills involved in the piece were some of the best we have seen. He is surely a master jeweller.’
   The event—now in its sixth year—ran from September 9 to 11. It saw over 100 jewellers exhibit their New Zealand-designed and made works, which were on sale during this period. Mayor Celia Wade-Brown opened the event, while TV producer Carol Hirschfeld MCed.
