Georgia May Jagger was guest of honour at Reserved’s German launch at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. Jagger, who also serves as the new label’s face for autumn–winter 2014–15 and walked the catwalk on the night, was among numerous celebrities, including Franziska Knuppe, Daniel BrĂŒhl, Jasmin Gerat, Elyas M’Barek, Eva Padberg, Anna-Maria MĂŒhe, Anna Julia Kapfelsperger and Anastasia Zampounidis. Reserved’s ‘Let’s Fashion’ party at Alte MĂŒnze Berlin was anything but reserved, with its 1,200 guests.
   DJs Beck To Beck, Terranova, Oskar Melzer, Adam Port and Rampa, and Niki Pauls performed, as well as indie band Oh Land.
   The launch, which showed the autumn–winter 2014–15 line, rather than the spring–summer 2015 one, marks the expansion of LPP SA’s brand into the German market. Reserved already has 500 stores in eastern and central Europe, and this month it will open its online store for German customers. Real-world shops will appear in the autumn at Recklinghausen, Stuttgart, Bremen and Hannover, with further stores planned in every main centre, as well as London and Paris, and in Croatia and Qatar.
   Polish-based LPP’s other brands are Cropp, Mohito, House and Sinsay. The company has revenues of over €1,000 million.

For Every Minute débuts mid-winter merino line; Queenstown prepares for Clicquot in the Snow

For Every Minute held its mid-winter VIP evening at Coco Wellington last night, with co-founder Kenzy Cheeseman holding court, and an even more lavish spread of macarons, guimauves and madeleines from French Cancan, teas from Harney & Sons, wine from Nautilus and water from Waiwera put on for guests. Ruth Armishaw performed live jazz numbers, and neighbouring Woodstock florist provided the flowers, giving the event a classier ambiance.
   As with For Every Minute’s previous event, models, and Cheeseman and Armishaw, were dressed in the company’s silk, loungewear, pyjamas and sleepwear, but there were more giveaways, including beauty treatment vouchers and silk eye masks.
   Cheeseman used the event to dĂ©but For Every Minute’s mid-winter merino line, which to our eyes looked even more comfortable than the silk designs.
   In other antipodean news, Best Western has announced that Harley–Davidson riders will have more travel perks across its 67 participating Australia and New Zealand properties.
   HOG members who sign up to Best Western Rewards will be automatically upgraded to Platinum status, with 10 per cent bonus points on each stay, a welcome gift on arrival, complimentary room upgrades, early check-in and late
check-out when available, as well as extra 10 per cent off their accommodation.
   Best Western International and Harley–Davidson extended their global partnership for three years in 2013.
   Finally, Veuve Clicquot will hold its Clicquot in the Snow celebration from July 30 to August 3 in Queenstown, New Zealand.
   The event, which has been held in Tignes and Aspen, sees Queenstown host everything from the Clicquot brunches at Pier 19, Steamers’ Wharf, from July 30 to 31, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (NZ$35), with a special session with guest DJ Vincent Hanna on August 1, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; the Clicquot Snow Bar at the Coronet Peak main deck (10 a.m.–4 p.m.), where guests can get a bespoke menu matched with a flute of Veuve Clicquot and a complimentary pair of Clicquot touch-screen gloves; the Clicquot dĂ©gustation dinner on August 1 at the Wakatipu Grill at the Hilton (NZ$150; call 64 3 450-9400 to book); an evening with Kathryn Wilson and Veuve Clicquot, where the designer will showcase her spring–summer 2014–15 shoe collection at the Heliworks Hangar on August 2 (NZ$50, see www.kathrynwilson.com for tickets); the after-party at the Bunker on July 31 from 9 p.m.; and the late-night sessions at Barmuda from on August 1 from 9 p.m.

   The tour kicked off on June 25 at Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens, Fla. BeyoncĂ© wears three costumes especially designed for her by Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci.
   BeyoncĂ© wears a black leather short jumpsuit, with the embroidered inscription ‘BBB 17’, with chunky zipper details and hand-embroidered bra and panties as her first Givenchy haute couture outfit.
   Her second outfit, ‘Single Ladies’, is a reinterpretation of her leotard, in black stretch tulle embroidered with paillettes, 3-D stones and crystals, and a fishnet-on-skin tulle centre part.
   Her third outfit, for the finalĂ© with Jay Z, is a black vinyl and velvet bodysuit with a fishnet catsuit underneath, and a 5 m long American flag shirt-skirt in black and white taffetas with embroidered stars.
   She wears custom-made nappa and patent leather thigh-high boots with each design.
   Jay Z wears a custom-made tuxedo in black grain-de-poudre with a black and white American flag print T-shirt from the upcoming Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci spring–summer 2015 menswear collection, in the opening number (‘03 Bonnie & Clyde’).
   The On the Run: BeyoncĂ© and Jay Z tour will travel through the US before heading to Europe in mid-September, at the Stade de France in Paris on September 12 and 13.
   The tour had already made headlines for showing off hitherto unseen footage from their wedding and of daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
   According to Forbes, the couple was the highest-paid in 2013, with an estimated income of US$95 million.

Many Hopes, the charity dedicated to building homes and schools for children in Kenya—and creating sustainable local businesses to make themselves unnecessary in the long term—had its gala on Tuesday.
   Celebrities at the Discover Many Hopes NYC Annual Gala at Canoe Studios on West 26th Street included Jessica Stam, Jeremy Penn, AnnaLynne McCord, Krysta Rodriguez, Jon Batiste, DJ Zeke Thomas, and Alice Callahan Thompson and her husband W. Kyser Thompson.
   The celebrities are said to be big supporters of Many Hopes, and the amount raised exceeded the target, netting $400,877 for the charity.
   Actress Alice Callahan Thompson, who along with her husband chaired one of the auctions, noted, ‘We believe the problem of street children in coastal Kenya is also the solution. I have been involved with this unique organization that rescues and empowers children and teens in Mtwapa, Kenya since 2011.
   â€˜My husband and I have travelled to Kenya twice to visit and serve our kiddos and look forward to returning this December. We have witnessed that no one cares more about fighting for justice than those who have suffered injustice. Our oldest girl Brendah is in her second term in law school in Nairobi, as she resolved seven years ago when Many Hopes fought for her rights, that she, too, would fight for the rights of others.’
   Batiste and Thomas provided the music for the evening. Penn had donated a painting of French actress Brigitte Bardot for the silent auction.

   Dreadon had worked on Lorde’s look at the Grammys earlier this year.
   The Lorde Pure Heroine amplified deep plum lipstick, and the Penultimate eyeliner in Rapidblack true black, each retailing for NZ$40, go on sale on June 27.
   The products will be available online and at select locations throughout New Zealand. MAC has hashtagged the campaign MACLorde for social media.

Kiwi artists exhibit in New York, while films on Raf Simons and YSL come to New Zealand

Four New Zealand artists are exhibiting in New York from July 1 at Forty:67, at the Artifact Gallery at 84 Orchard Street in the lower east side of Manhattan.
   The exhibition, which comprises painting, photography and jewellery-making, features the work of Sarah Elsby, Nikki Clark, Aphra Ellen, and Jodi Clark. Elsby and Ellen are mother and daughter, and Nikki and Jodi Clark are sisters.
   The work examines the ideas behind identity, place, and culture, or: what does it mean to be a foreigner transplanted to an international centre such as New York City?
   Elsby uses watercolours on paper, exploring the tensions between biomorphic and architectural forms. Photographer Nikki Clark contrasts New York City with the tranquillity of the Whanganui River, near where she grew up, and the similarity of the power in both locations. Jodi Clark’s painting explores how symbols can transcend cultures and history, ‘arranged so they become abstracted from their original intent; taking on a new meaning and life while still triggering memories and nostalgia,’ she says. Ellen’s hand-crafted jewellery has what has been described as a playful approach, inspired by organic forms and odd shapes.
   The gallery is open from 12 to 6 p.m. daily.
   Meanwhile, two fashion films will be part of the New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF), taking place between July and September in Auckland, Wellington and other centres.
   The first, FrĂ©dĂ©ric Tcheng’s Dior and I (France, 2014), is a behind-the-scenes documentary, following Raf Simons as he creates his first collection for Christian Dior, taking over from John Galliano. It’s already on Lucire fashion editor Sopheak Seng’s must-see list as the festival takes place.
   Yves Saint Laurent, which has had a lot of coverage in Lucire already, is the second film. This is the Jalil Lespert film, which opened in January 2014 in France, and was authorized by Pierre BergĂ©. (The rival film was authorized by François Pinault.)
   Session dates are available online from nziff.co.nz: the Auckland ones are up now, with the Wellington schedule appearing on Friday, and other centres on July 4.

Cassadee Pope, winner of the third season of the US version of Dutch show The Voice and CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year, is the new spokeswoman for Proactiv.
   Pope is the latest young celebrity that the acne-fighting skin care range has tapped to connect with consumers, endorsing the brand, following in the footsteps of The Voice US coach Adam Levine, Lily Aldridge, Olivia Munn, Julianne Hough, Naya Rivera and A. J. Cook.
   Pope relates her story of using Proactiv’s three-step system in combatting acne in upcoming promotions, where she says a make-up artist put her on to the system.
   Greg Renker, co-founder and co-chairman of Guthy–Renker, the company behind Proactiv, says, ‘Cassadee is a talented singer and songwriter who has gained trust with fans around the world by sharing her vulnerability and fun-loving personality through her lyrics. She is a great partner to share her personal acne story on how Proactiv Plus made her feel, look and act like the powerhouse she is.’
   Her latest single ‘I Wish I Could Break Your Heart’ and number-one dĂ©but album Frame By Frame are currently available on Itunes.
   Information from Pope’s Proactiv shoot will appear on its Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube channel, Instagram and Pinterest, with the hashtag #CassadeeforProactivPlus.

Top The Beatles in A Hard Day’s Night, 1964. Above George Harrison marries Pattie Boyd in 1966.

Catalina Island, California
Hard to believe it’s been a half-century since the premiĂšre of A Hard Day’s Night. To commemorate the date, the Catalina Island Museum will mount a special 50th anniversary screening of the legendary movie starring the Beatles on Sunday, July 6 in Avalon’s Casino Theatre at 7 p.m. Lucire loves the vintage dĂ©co interior. On hand to take questions will be author Pattie Boyd (right), who you can surely interrogate about her life and times as wife of George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and her best-selling memoir, Wonderful Tonight. Pattie exudes energy and personality, and loves to laugh. Watch for her in a famous scene which takes place on a train: she’s the blonde girl in a school uniform, who flirts with George.


Paris, France
A new website has launched this week which could simplify the task of finding lodging in this capital city: www.myboutiquehotel.paris/fr/. It looks like a pretty cleverly designed and attractive site, listing over 250 boutique hotels. You can select by price, star rating, location, nearby landmarks, areas of interest, but the kicker is the promise of a real live human being person available on the phone to assist you. We’d be interested to learn of anyone’s experiences with this site. Good luck with your launch!

Gurgaon, Haryana, India
While the city, population 20 million, stews under a layer of world-class pollution (mostly the by-product of wood fires), the problem of traffic compounds the subject. Gurgaon excels in congestion, and this week some like-minded technology companies are rolling out Folksvagn, a cheekily-named ride-sharing solution in the Palam Vihar and Sector 22–3 area. It’s also a vote of support for Gurgaon start-ups like our friends at Nagarro, one of a group deploying modern mindsets in the interest of transforming urban mobility with programmes like this. If you’re looking for a sustainable and socially responsible ride to work in Gurgaon, this may be your answer.

Punta Ala, Italy
This week, Baglioni reopens La Vela, a classic architectural monument originally known as a swinging disco in 1965. You can see its signature roofline on the very exclusive beach here. A glorious renovation transforms the space into a 160-seat restaurant and spa. Ideally situated among a cypress grove, with astounding views of the nearby islands Elba, Capraia and Pianosa, the airy infinity terrace promises to be an ideal location for sunset beverages and prime people-watching. GM Luigi Magnani promises ‘a soft club’ experience for evenings.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor
