The Marlborough Falcon Trust Falcon Valley has opened at the Brancott Estate Heritage Centre this week, a memorable destination for travellers in New Zealand this summer. The result of a partnership between the Trust and Brancott Estate, visitors can check get up close with a kārearea (New Zealand falcon) for a donation. The donations will go toward falcon awareness and rehabilitation at the Trust’s aviary in Marlborough.
   The Trust has two advocacy birds in flight that visitors can see as part of the Brancott Estate Falcon Encounter. The birds help keep grape-eating birds away from the vineyard, and can reach 200 km/h when hunting.
   There are fewer than 3,000 pairs if kārearea in the wild, and they face a number of threats, including loss of habitat, electrocution on power poles, collisions with turbines on wind farms, predation by cats and hedgehogs, and stoats and rats preying on eggs and nestlings. They are listed as a threatened species by the Department of Conservation.
   The Falcon Encounter also includes a tasting of wines from the Brancott Estate Living Land range of organic wines. The range has raised a good deal of the NZ$500,000 that the winery has given to the Trust, where NZ$1 from each bottle is donated to the Living Land Fund. The funds have helped finance a 16-pen rehabilitation and breeding aviary, and the ongoing care of falcons.

Extra Christmas treats from the Body Shop

The Body Shop USA

We couldn’t get enough of the goodies from the Body Shop we looked at in last month’s post. Now we are looking at their new range of Christmas gift sets titled Love, Peace and Joy, each one coordinated to a specific scent including the Frosted Cranberry and the Glazed Apple range reviewed last time.
   Lucire tried out the Schoolbook of Joy: the Vanilla Edition (NZ$65), with a few products from the Vanilla BrĂ»lĂ©e line. It features the essentials from soap and shower gel to lip balm and soap, all assembled into this adorable hand-crafted book-shaped package. The packaging, made in Nepal, is inspired by the Children in Education initiative with War Child, which provides children in a country affected by war the opportunity to attend a class. This collection is the perfect combination of essentials products providing an all-round heavenly scented experience.
   The shower gel is soap-free and the natural ingredients, including Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia, effectively cleanse the skin without removing moisture. The gel-based liquid is ideal to use with a loofah or just in your hands, leaving a clean feel with a reminiscent vanilla scent. This can be purchased individually (NZ$24·50) in a larger quantity, however, the gift size is ideal for travelling around this summer.
   The limited edition heart-shaped soap is the perfect addition or alternative to the gel. The little heart contains shell powder to exfoliate your skin leaving it feeling soft and fresh without drying it out along with the rich infusion of the Vanilla BrĂ»lĂ©e fragrance.
   The body butter is a definite favourite for the delicate scent and lavishing buttery texture. This particular item contains the Community Fair Trade shea butter which locks in the moisture without leaving a sticky or oily residue. It is perfect for any time of the day and will complement the cleansing and exfoliation of the soap and shower gel. This can also be purchased individually for NZ$36·95.
   Finally, the lip balm, secured in the staple silver tin, is the perfect component to keep by your side throughout the day. It contains beeswax from locally sourced materials in a remote region of Cameroon, which provides a sweet and creamy application with a smooth subtle vanilla scented finish. By itself it retails for NZ$19·95.
   Along with the Body Shop’s organic and fair trade policy this set is an ideal Christmas gift to add a little joy into someone’s beauty rĂ©gime this Christmas.—Eleanor Wright

Tested: we indulge in the Body Shop’s Christmas 2014 selection

Lucire staff/9.46

The Body Shop’s Christmas shopping selection has some of its most indulgent products, and Lucire has tried some of them out.
   There are plenty of products in the Body Shop’s Glazed Apple body care line, from the very simple but effective Bonbon Soap (NZ$10·25) to the indulgent bath jelly (NZ$33·95). The soap has a faint apple smell: it’s subtly scented and does not feel “chemical”, thanks to its plant-derived ingredients, such as its moisturizing sodium palmate. The bath jelly is also subtle but the smell gets released in water—don’t be deceived if you take the lid off for a sniff, as it’s quite lovely when mixed.
   The Glazed Apple lip balm (NZ$19·95, above right) is hydrating, and a wonderful addition to gift-giving this season. If you really want luxe, the Glazed Apple body butter (NZ$36·95) is rich with a more noticeable scent—it’s a must if you wish to spoil someone special.
   The Body Shop also has Frosted Cranberry, and Vanilla BrĂ»lĂ©e products, which we have sampled in the past. These favourites are back for Christmas 2014.



   When it comes to make-up, the company has it covered there, too. We’ve tried the eyeshadow palettes, namely the Frosted Pastels (NZ$50), which are on-trend with its shades for summer. We love the fact they haven’t been tested on animals, and the cute packaging. If you’re not that sure of how to apply the eye make-up, the Body Shop provides instructions, complete with the order of what goes on first.
   The Sparkler (NZ$50), meanwhile, is a spritzer that gives a fine dust of shimmer for your skin, available in Glazed Apple (which we tried), Frosted Cranberry, and Vanilla BrĂ»lĂ©e. You do need to get in the right light to show off the sparkle.
   The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Doll (NZ$49·95), a lip and cheek stain, has a limited-edition packaging for the holiday season. It has a natural colour, which you can build on, and it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. As a highlighter on the cheeks, it gives a healthy glow.


   The Glitter Eyeliner (NZ$24·95) is easy to apply, though you do need two layers. However, it lifts the eyes and gives a nice effect.
   Trying the Body Shop’s Colour Crush nail colours (NZ$12·95 each), which are happily free of harsh chemicals, we noted the base went on very well. We sampled Red My Mind, which was a deeper orange, Mint Cream, which we could only describe as very mint, and the Body Shop Green, a very Christmas colour. There was an easy application for all three, with none getting on the skin. For extra embellishments, the Body Shop’s nail art pen (NZ$15·95), with fine and thick ends, proved to be a very effective and precise tool.
   Meanwhile, to remove nail varnish, the Body Shop has an acetone-free formula that uses sweet almond oil, soya oil and Community Fair Trade sugar cane essence. The smell’s still quite strong, but the non-drying formula is effective and worked better than a rival product we compared it to.
   Get in to the Body Shop today for a one-stop location for some great Christmas presents.

Barneys New York unveiled its collaboration with film director Baz Luhrmann and four-time Academy Award-winning production designer Catherine Martin, christened Baz Dazzled, at its Madison Avenue store.
   Luhrmann, Martin and Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman, have taken holiday themes and, according to Barneys, in true Luhrmann style, ‘turned them upside-down into a world of fantastical characters, enchanted environments, and luxurious, metallic textures.’
   â€˜From the first time my wife Catherine Martin and I found ourselves in New York back in the ’80s, we always marvelled at the way Barneys took the familiar and managed to turn it on its head. This way of seeing the world is somewhat akin to our own creative philosophy,’ said Luhrmann. ‘Here we are now, so many years later in our adopted home, honoured to join the pedigree of artists, performers, and creative organizations which have collaborated with Barneys, to take the familiar and turn it on its head.’
   Urbanized woodland creatures, including a b-boy elf, a “true owl” who always speaks the truth, a graffiti-ing squirrel, and Celestina the ice princess, inhabit a fantasy world ruled by the Luna and Solar queens. There is a series of live performances and interactive theatre in each of the Barneys windows.
   The themes for the four windows are love (Elphresh the elf pursues his impossible love, Elfemeral), beauty (the Spirits of the Snow, by artist Anthony Howe), truth (Truth, an eight-foot-tall steampunk true owl, by artist Chris Cole), and freedom (a trapped ice princess dreams of freedom).
   The Madison Avenue store’s façade ties in to the theme, with the Solar and Luna queens singing out of two Juliet balconies on the second floor.
   Music for the performances is provided by a cappella group Pentatonix, ­comprised of vocalists Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, and Mitch Grassi, vocal bass Avi Kaplan, and beatboxer Kevin ‘K. O. Olusola­who, who exclusively scored and recorded custom versions of classics. In addition, Pentatonix provided vocals to several characters.
   Costumes have been created by Zaldy, who worked with Martin. The performances were directed in collaboration with Luhrmann, Martin, Barneys New York, and Andrew Katz.
   A limited-edition Baz Dazzled XO Exclusively Ours collection of luxury holiday dĂ©cor and gifts is available on the ninth floor of the Madison Avenue store, select Barneys stores nationwide, and Barneys.com. Items include an engraved Berti champagne sabre, a knit rabbit throw by Adrienne Landau, Studio DKS pillows, children’s costumes, stuffed animals, and exclusive Prada-created fur-lined sleeping bag and luxury picnic set.
   Pentatonix sang at the unveiling, singing, with the Luna and Solar queens, Madonna’s ‘Holiday’.
   Celebrities and VIPs at both the unveiling and the Central Park Zoo dinner afterwards included Richard and Lisa Perry, Amy Sacco, Aurelie Bidermann, Dakota Fanning, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School, Deborra-Lee Furness, Dennis Freedman, Estelle, Giovanna Battaglia, Stefano Tonchi, Jessica Joffe, Kate Foley, Lily Kwong, Meryl Poster, Michael Avedon, Pat Cleveland, Simon Doonan, Max Osterweis, Victoria Justice, Wendi Deng, Zani Gugelmann, Madison Guest, Victoria Justice, Hamish Bowles, Anna Wintour, Michael Avedon, Dorian Grinspan, Virginia Smith, Carter Elwood-Etherington, Breken Elwood-Etherington, Jennifer Zuccarini, Edward Menicheschi, Hailey Gates, Bronson van Wyck, Charles Rockefeller, Allese Thomson, Knight Landesman, and Brooke Garber Neidich.
   Twenty-five per cent of sales from Baz Dazzled holiday products will be donated to Room to Read, a literacy organization helping children in developing countries.

Kipling’s Always On, as are our spring–summer 2015 picks from Paris and New York

Lola Cristall/22.34

When we think about the agile monkey symbol, Kipling automatically comes to mind. For fashionistas, it is a brand, but for the literary critics, the name is associated with the world-renowned British author Rudyard Kipling. Neither fashionista nor literary critic is wrong, considering more than two decades ago three designers in Belgium found their inspiration from the author’s The Jungle Book.
   The brand is known for their stylish bags, luggage and travel accessories. Post-fashion week, Kipling took over the remarkable Grand Central Terminal in New York to introduce their Always On collection. The different pieces on display were trendy and practical; music from Harley Viera Newton echoed throughout the site. Have a glance at their styles here:




   On the main part of the site, you’ll find Lucire’s picks for spring–summer 2015 from both the Paris and New York catwalks, and US west coast editor Elyse Glickman looks at Israeli footwear brand Naot, and a recent venture they did with Bellagio Shoes to help the residents of Beit T’Shuvah, a treatment centre that aims to get people back on their feet (pun intended).—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor

Sponsored video: Moroccanoil wants to hear your stories that are #inspiredbywomen

Lucire staff/13.09

A Lucire special promotion


Lucire has featured Moroccanoil for years—we like to think we were one of the insiders that let readers know of this beauty range from Canada first.
   Moroccanoil is known for its luxury hair care approach, with performance-driven formulas that help nourish and restore hair to a natural, silky finish. With modern environmental factors conspiring to hurt hair, Moroccanoil’s light formula helps reverse those adverse effects.
   When Moroccanoil first started, oil treatments for hair were rare, but founder Carmen Tal persisted, and the range has caught the attention of celebrities and hair professionals around the world.
   Last month, Moroccanoil appointed its first ambassador, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who began gracing our pages at roughly the same time as the oil treatments. It’s a great campaign, because we finally get to see the real Huntington-Whiteley on a wider scale—she’s far more articulate and fun than you might expect—and it taps in to an idea that everyone will find familiar.
   The campaign asks viewers to create a brief video, hashtagged #inspiredbywomen, telling the world which woman has inspired them, sharing their stories. There are no gimmicks or prizes: the company wants to get these stories out and begins with its own six women, chosen by Tal herself, in a video series directed by Bryce Dallas Howard.
   Huntington-Whiteley is one of the six, joined by Chrissy Beckles (who literally fights for abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico, by going into the boxing ring to raise funds through charity bouts), Rebecca Welsh (whose HALO Foundation provides underprivileged children a chance to unlock their creativity), Kavita Shukla (whose FreshPaper venture has revolutionized food storage in 35 countries), Allyson Ahlstrom (who created Threads for Teens, a free boutique serving at-risk girls), and Jessica Matthews (who invented the Soccket, a soccer ball that creates electrical energy).
   Says Tal, ‘Inspiration is about feeling empowered. If we can empower women, the sky’s the limit.’

A busy week for Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

A Lucire exclusive




Paula Sweet

In a whirlwind week, two extraordinary events occurred in northern Italy, both under the stewardship of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.
   On the night of Wednesday, September 10 at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Torino, a travelling exhibition showcasing the finalists to this year’s Prix Pictet launched. This year’s theme, Consumption, introduced by Pictet’s Stephen Barber at a gala reception, themes the world’s most prestigious annual photography prize. You can visit this important show at the Fondazione’s impressive and expansive space, a converted factory, through October 12.
   The following Sunday, September 14, Divine, an installation focusing on highlights from the 20th century costume jewellery collection of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, opened at Ca’D’oro in Venezia. A gathering of local luminaries and international guests witnessed the official launch of the show. Over 400 objects notable for their history and elegance are displayed in the Galleria Georgio Franchetti, remaining on exhibit through January 11, 2015.
   In her exhibition notes, Sandretto Re Rebaudegno says she first developed interest in accessible costume jewellery designs because they represent a cultural heritage that ‘brings us back to hard times and great social change.’ But you will find they are also remarkable for their craftsmanship and inherent beauty.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor
