Shang Xia, a Chinese lifestyle brand, has launched its new Le Chant du Thé campaign images, photographed by Paolo Roversi. Jiang Qiong Er, the artistic director of Shang Xia, with the collaboration of the Fred & Farid agency in Shanghai, and Roversi himself, came up with the concept, playing on the brand’s Chinese roots. Jiang says, ‘More and more Chinese people, after spending so long dominated by western style, have a need to return to their own cultural heritage.’ By linking it to tea, at the core of Chinese civilization, the photographs feature tea leaves and even a pool of tea, alongside the Shang Xia Lan Yue leather and bamboo bag, the Sculpture overcoat in cashmere felt, and Bridge, a tea service crafted in bamboo.


   Italian supercar brand Lamborghini has announced a limited-edition Aventador LP700-4 Pirelli Edition, celebrating its collaboration with the tyre manufacturer. Pirelli has equipped Lamborghini cars since the beginning in 1963, and the Pirelli Edition, for which orders are being taken now, will be available for delivery in the northern summer. Coupé and roadster models are available. The Pirelli Edition features a two-tone colour scheme (matt black detailing combined with a body in Giallo Spica, Rosso Mars, Bianco Isis, Nero Aldebaran, Grigio Liqueo or Grigio Ater, or gloss black for the upper parts of the car and the air intakes, with four matt finishes in Bianco Canopus, Nero Nemesis, Grigio Adamas or Grigio Titans for the remainder). There’s a smidge more information on the new model at Lucire Men.

   Estée Lauder will acquire Glamglow, a Hollywood skin care brand with a collection of high-end treatment masks, with the deal to close in January.
   The current line includes five mud-based facial skin mask products, each targeting a different skin care concern: Youthmud for anti-ageing, Supermud for problem skin, Thirstymud for hydration, Powermud for deep cleansing, and Brightmud for the under-eye area. A range of daily cleansers will appear in January.
   The four-year-old company, originally called Hollywood’s Boutique Secret, already retails in Sephora, Douglas, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Bloomingdale’s and, from January, Nordstrom.

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, the most Googled celebrity of the year and one of our news-makers of 2013, was looking stylish as she left the Greenwich Hotel in New York wearing a Breton striped sweatshirt, blazer, skinny leather pants and Givenchy sandals. Lawrence has denied that there is any involvement between her and producer Gabe Polsky, with the actress clarifying that he is the boyfriend of her best friend. The gossip media enjoy speculating—when there’s nothing happening.
   Similarly, a quick adjustment by Lady Gaga after a wardrobe malfunction revealed her Spanx merited headlines although what was more impressive, to us, was her feathery white dress, then her plunging white gown and netted overlay that she wore for her guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon later that day. Gaga performed Cole Porter’s ‘Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye’ while on the show, featured below.

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.

The $300 million budget set aside for Spectre, the 24th Eon James Bond film, will need a marketing bonanza. After Aston Martin revealed its DB10—10 cars built exclusively for the film and not general sale—and Jaguar Land Rover confirmed that they would be supplying a C-X75 and Range Rover vehicles, Belvedere Vodka is next, launching its global partnership with James Bond at the Bond in Motion exhibition at the London Film Museum last night.
   Guests included Lily Cole, Tinie Tempah, Amber Atherton, Pixie Geldof, Douglas Booth, Kim Hersov, Ella Catliff and Christophe Navarre, while Belvedere president Charles Gibb played host.
   Belvedere’s limited-edition bottles see the Belvedere palace replaced with an image of the MI6 headquarters from the film, while its trade-mark blue will be changed to green, on one. These will be limited to 100 bottles. The second change will be to Belvedere’s Silver Sabre bottles.
   The marketing programme commences in February, with point-of-sale promotions. Updates will be put on Belvedere’s Instagram account.
   Spectre, which is named after the fictional terrorist organization from the Ian Fleming novels, will première on November 6, 2015. Daniel Craig will return as the super-spy, and the cast includes Monica Bellucci, Léa Seydoux, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, and Christoph Waltz as the villain. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson produce, while Sam Mendes (Skyfall) returns to direct.

News in brief: Chanel’s Paris–Salzburg collection; Lady Gaga, Eva Longoria in NYC; Anja Rubik launches perfume

Karl Lagerfeld has unveiled the 13th Chanel Métiers d’Art collection in Salzburg, Austria, recognizing its historical connection with Gabrielle Chanel (she got the inspiration for the Chanel jacket there, at the Hotel Schloss Mittersill, then owned by Baron Hubert von Pantz, with whom she had a fling). Lagerfeld discusses his collection in the video clip below, which showcases the Paris–Salzburg collection, featuring Cara Delevingne, who not only closed the show, but is the face of the collection itself.
   The presentation, at the Leopoldskron château, showcased the fine work of the feather-workers, milliners, tuckers and bootmakers. Lagerfeld took inspiration from traditional Austrian clothing, revisiting the dirndls and lederhosen, using loden, tweed, felt, leather and satin cashmere mix, taffeta and lace. Evening dresses featured pin-tucked fronts, frills, pleats and voluminous sleeves.
   ‘You can take inspiration from the apron, from the sleeves, from all the little details, but you have to forget it all and we do it in a new way,’ said Lagerfeld. ‘The star of Salzburg is about the jacket, but what I like is the craftsmanship, the embroidery with all the feathers. There is an unbelievable craftsmanship in all those clothes: most of the embroidery includes stones and many feathers, it’s like fur, it’s like flying fur. If you look at them closely, it’s quite unbelievable; when you see them or you touch them. So I tried, with beautiful fake pearls, to make interesting pearl jewellery that looks like embroidery. It’s the updated version of what I think it should be, could be, and had to be today.’
   In New York celebrity sightings, Lady Gaga has been spotted wearing the Blake wide-brim hat in oyster felt with pearl trim from Eugenia Kim’s fall 2014 collection last week, while Eva Longoria wore a Ralph & Russo spring–summer 2014 white silk crêpe cap sleeve embellished jacket with structured peplum, pencil skirt and black alligator belt to the ninth annual L’Oréal Women of Worth event.
   L’Oréal Paris notes that Longoria’s look uses True Match liquid foundation in C2 Rose Vanilla, the Volume Million Lashes Excess in Extra Black, Color Riche Le Kajal in 501 Oriental Black, the Super Liner Brow Artist Plumper in medium to dark, and the Elnett Volume Excess hairspray. Blake Lively, very much this year’s L’Oréal Paris celebrity with all the attention she garnered at Cannes, was also at Women of Worth, her look accomplished with True Match in N3 Creamy Beige, the Glam Bronze Powder Duo in 101 Blonde, the Flash Lash Butterfly in Intenza, Txt Wave Creating Spray, and the Nude Rose Color Riche La Palette.

   Polish model Anja Rubik, 31, meanwhile, has released her new perfume, Original. At Colette in Paris, she discusses some of her beauty tips from her career, including using eyelash curlers and moisturizing your skin. Rubik also reveals that Brigitte Bardot is her ‘ultimate beauty’, and rates Charlotte Gainsbourg and Patty Smyth highly.
   The perfume scents are those that have followed her over the years, namely white lilies and green tea, while the black-and-white imagery was inspired by her love of black-and-white photography and the work of Robert Mapplethorpe.
   Carrera y Carrera is going from strength to strength: the Madrid-based luxury jewellery brand has opened a boutique in Macau, as a first beach-head into China. Manuel Carrera, a fourth-generation descendant of the Carrera family who founded the brand, was on hand with CEO Svetlana Kupriyanova.
   Finally, in the main part of our site, travel editor Stanley Moss fits museums and great food into 48 hours in Torino, while publisher Jack Yan tests the BMW X1 Sdrive18d—readers might like the title.

The Fédération française de la couture, du prêt-à-porter des couturiers et des créateurs de mode, l’Institut français de la mode, the China Garment Association and the China Fashion Association came together to celebrate half a century of unity. Following the China–France fashion summit, Ji Wenbo (left) presented his most recent collection at the prestigious Hôtel d’Evreux at la Place Vendôme. Ji, who is also director of the China Fashion Designers’ Association of Fashion and Art Committee, is known as the ‘king of fashion’ in China. He is head designer of Li Lang, a famous menswear brand. His outlook on the western fashion world incorporates a stunning, vivacious colour palette and original, effervescent styles. Imperial and bold shades came to life on the green and gold catwalk, with delicate prints on bold fabric.
   Pandora and brand ambassador Kellie Pickler, along with lifestyle expert Tai Beauchamp, hosted the Hearts of Today Awards at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. Pandora is more than just a fine jewellery company: it also serves to support good causes. The concept was launched in July and serves to honour and celebrate females who work to improve the lives of women and children. The eight chosen honorees, out of 700 nominations, are each provided with $25,000 that would help them continue to reach their desired goal in ameliorating lives.
   Wacoal Europe invited guests to an intimate evening at the Salon Paul Ricard. The venue featured a number of Wacoal collections, from vibrant shades to neutral colours that attracted onlookers as they touched, felt and admired. Premier by Dead Sea, a brand founded in 1990 specializing in body, skin and hair rejuvenation for men and women, presented guests with natural products that revitalize hands and nails. Lillet featured their distinctive, delicate and sweet French aperitif wines, reviving one’s taste buds. In order to indulge in light-tasting guilty pleasures, Yohan Kim—once Joël Robuchon’s pastry chef—introduced a number of delicate French pastries from financiers with green tea to madeleine and pâte de fruits, exploding with bursts of fruity delight. Throughout the evening, numerous illustrations by Eudoxie were projected on the wall for the audience to enjoy.—Lola Cristall, Paris editor

Laurent Vu/SIPA

Camille Cerf, Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais, has been crowned Miss France 2015 tonight from the Zenith in Orléans.
   Cerf is 19, and is 1·8 m tall. She is in her second year of business school, and says her ambition and spontaneity are her best qualities. She had emerged as an early favourite online.
   Hinirere Taputu, Miss Tahiti, was runner-up, Charlotte Pirroni, Miss Côte d’Azur, was second runner-up. Malaurie Eugenie, Miss Aquitaine, and Alyssa Wurtz, Miss Alsace, were fourth and fifth.
   The placings were determined by the viewing public, who made their decision through SMS and telephone voting.
   The live telecast on TF1 is expected to get near a 40 per cent share once ratings are confirmed.
   This year’s show featured sets commemorating different genres of film, such as dance, music and musicals (including the films Chicago, The Great Gatsby, Grease, Flashdance and Dirty Dancing), romantic comedies, and Disney–Pixar cartoon Frozen (the top five appeared as Elsa, the Snow Queen). The final evening gown set saw the top five in designs by Nicolas Fafiotte.
   Former Miss France winners were also present, including Delphine Wespiser, Miss France 2012, Malika Ménard, Miss France 2010 and Marine Lorphelin, Miss France 2013.
   Last year, Miss Orléanis, Flora Coquerel, was crowned the 2014 winner, watched by an audience of 8·3 million on television.
   The judging panel comprised Patrick Bruel (presiding over the jury), Olympic swimmer Laure Manaudou, singer Shy’M, TV and radio host Jean-Luc Reichmann, humorist Stéphane Rousseau, comedian Philippe Bas and Miss France 2008 Valérie Bègue. Comedian Kev Adams made a surprise appearance during the evening, with one performance.
   The top 12 contestants were Miss Aquitaine, Miss Roussillon, Miss Guadeloupe, Miss Picardie, Miss Provence, Miss Tahiti, Miss Île-de-France, Miss New Caledonia, Miss Alsace, Miss Côte d’Azur, Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Miss Centre.
   Thirty-three contestants, aged between 18 and 24, competed for the title.

Miss France 2015 will be announced tonight from the Zenith in Orléans with a live broadcast on TF1, starting at 8.55 p.m. local time.
   Last year, Miss Orléanis, Flora Coquerel, was crowned the 2014 winner, watched by an audience of 8·3 million on television.
   Thirty-three contestants, aged between 18 and 24, are competing for the title. Over the previous month, they have been to Paris and Punta Cana (in the Dominican Republic), before heading to Orléans.
   There have been changes to the judging line-up, after actor Alain Delon resigned in the wake of comments supporting the National Front. Patrick Bruel has taken his place as the president of the jury, joined by Olympic swimmer Laure Manaudou, singer Shy’M, TV and radio host Jean-Luc Reichmann, humorist Stéphane Rousseau, comedian Philippe Bas and Miss France 2008 Valérie Bègue.
   One constant has been the presence of MC Jean-Pierre Foucault, who will host for the 20th time. In one departure from the past, viewers will determine the winner and two runners-up with telephone and SMS voting. Previously, they only chose the top five.
   The lead-up to the final on Saturday night has been controversy-free after the settlement with former Miss France organizer Geneviève de Fontenay last year.
   The only controversy of note in 2014 has been the delayed broadcast for the Réunion Islands and French Polynesia, meaning they cannot participate in live voting.
   De Fontenay’s rival competition, Miss Prestige National, takes place on January 18, 2015, in Kirrwiller, near Strasbourg.
