Redken has released details of the hairstyles at Paris Fashion Week that it contributed to, namely the autumn–winter 2015–16 collections of Christian Dior and Balenciaga.
   Guido, its global creative director, gave Christian Dior a science fiction-inspired ponytail look. In a release, Guido said, ‘I created this very long, asymmetrical side ponytail at Christian Dior this season, but it’s not your standard, fun, side pony. There’s something sinister and almost strange about it. It’s sophisticated, but very sci-fi and has somewhat of a child-like quality. First, I prepped and blow dried the hair with Redken’s Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow Dry Lotion, so it’s super-straight and smooth. Then, I created a deep, exaggerated side part and gathered the hair into this smooth, low side ponytail, getting a
clean finish with Redken’s Fashion Work 12 hairspray. It has a strange sense to it because it’s so asymmetrical and has such extreme length. It’s really a continuation of the woman we’ve been seeing this season, who is more done with a very modern, futuristic feeling.’
   For Balenciaga, ‘At Balenciaga, I created this very chic, sculpted chignon on the top of the crown that really accentuates the long neck and gives you a beautiful, elegant silhouette. It’s kind of futuristic-feeling in the way it’s moulded to the head, but it’s still very polished and stylized, which makes the style look very new to the eye again. I used Redken’s Guts 10 to blow dry the hair straight, pulled it up into a high ponytail right on the crown and then moulded it into a flat chignon with Redken’s Forceful 23 Super Strength hair spray. I left out two pieces of hair on either side of the head to create the illusion of little sideburns. Though the shape is based on something classic, the shiny, lacquer-like finish gives it a new, modern feeling,’ said Guido.
   Lola Cristall’s fashion week summary will be published online shortly.

The look at Christian Dior

1. After shampooing, apply a nickel-size amount of Redken Extreme Length Primer (NZ$35, available in New Zealand from April 2015) to wet hair and rinse out.
2. Brush Redken Extreme Length Sealer (NZ$33, from April) on damp hair from mid-lengths to ends.
3. Spray Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer (NZ$36) all over damp hair.
4. Apply a nickel-size amount of Redken Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow Dry Lotion (NZ$36) to damp hair, working into the hair from roots to ends.
5. Use a comb to create a deep side part and blow-dry smooth using a round brush.
6. Gather hair into a low side ponytail, ensuring the sides are super smooth, and secure with an elastic.
7. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic to hide it.
8. Spray Redken Fashion Work 12 (NZ$36) versatile working spray all over to get a smooth, clean finish.

The look at Balenciaga

1. Spray Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer (NZ$36) all over damp hair and comb through.
2. Apply a quarter-size amount of Redken Guts 10 volumizing spray-foam mousse (NZ$38) to damp hair, working into the hair from roots to ends.
3. Blow-dry hair straight using a flat brush.
4. Gather hair into a high ponytail, leaving two small pieces out on each side, and secure with an elastic at the crown of the head.
5. Twist ponytail into a wide, flat chignon that’s moulded to the head, and secure with U-shaped pins.
6. Thoroughly spray Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray (NZ$36) and Redken Shine Flash 02 (NZ$38) for a lacquer-like finish.
7. Flat iron the two small pieces of hair on each side of the head to create the illusion of sideburns.

Jerry Hall leads L’OrĂ©al Professionnel’s It Looks for autumn–winter 2015

L’OrĂ©al Professionnel has released its looks for autumn–winter 2015 in New Zealand, with Jerry Hall leading the campaign, alongside model Helena Bordon and actress Loan Chabanol.
   They are adapted from the company’s It Looks for autumn–winter 2014–15 in the northern hemisphere.
   Hall’s signature long blonde locks are gone as she adopts the Golden Lob look, which remains ‘chic and yet playful like Jerry Hall herself,’ says L’OrĂ©al Professionnel’s stylist Seb Bascle. Meanwhile, Bordon sports tousled waves and bangs and ash blonde tones, and Chabonol wears a new take on the pixie cut, with a copper shade which L’OrĂ©al Professionnel says enhances bone structure and features.
   The Golden Lob works with naturally wavy hair and the blonde hue can be adapted to different skin tones. Bordon’s style helps refresh a blonde look, while the copper pixie is low-maintenance and highly adaptable.
   Stylist Rebecca Brent of Willis York says, ‘The nice thing about this season’s It Looks is they are different but not too different from the spring–summer collection. ‘If a client wants to reinvent her pixie cut to the longer fringe and two tone block colour, it’s super-easy to update.
   â€˜The long bob is such a versatile hairstyle it suits everyone. You can transform it to suit your mood—wavy, sleek, side part, ponytail—the styles are endless.’

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, playing Derek Zoolander and Hansel from their roles in the 2001 hit film Zoolander, appeared to spontaneous applause at Paris Fashion Week, where Paris editor Lola Cristall is compiling her full report.
   The pair appeared on the catwalk at the Valentino ready-to-wear autumn–winter 2015–16 show, and posed with their “blue steel” looks—a term popularized by the movie about the fictional male model, Derek Zoolander.
   Stiller wrote and directed the original film, and it remains well known within the fashion industry.
   A sequel will be released on February 12, 2016.
   Stiller and Wilson posed with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour backstage.

Jameson Irish Whiskey unveils limited-edition bottle for St Patrick’s Day 2015

Jameson has shown its 2015 limited-edition bottle for St Patrick’s Day, designed by award-winning Dublin-based illustrator, Steve Simpson (above).
   This marks the fifth limited-edition bottle from the Irish whiskey brand, with a contemporary take, featuring Dubliner phrases on a map of the city. The story that Simpson wanted to convey was a personal one: ‘Wherever I roam, it’s Dublin my heart calls home,’ words that are resplendent on the label.
   Earlier designs had been crafted by, inter alia, Paul Daly, David Smith, and Dermot Flynn. Last year’s bottle saw Flynn put phrases all over the label, but this year’s is more illustrative, with imagery and wording sharing the space, in a cheerful, colourful fashion with the spirit of St Patrick’s Day.
   Kathryn Love, Marketing Manager for Jameson in New Zealand, says, ‘Jameson is synonymous with its home town of Dublin: both are steeped in heritage and are leaders in contemporary craft, so this limited-edition bottle is a perfect way of paying homage to this great city.’
   The release of the limited-edition bottle takes place on March 17 in New Zealand, and retails for NZ$64·99 at selected liquor retailers.

The wonderment of Flow

Tamara Madison/12.46

There’s nothing like a carefully plated delicious meal that will get conversation started at the dinner table. Food generally brings families and friends together, and like food, fashion tends to gather hungry crowds just the same. A room full of thirsty appetites, whether desiring a glass of shiraz or craving a fresh take on classic silhouettes is all digested best with a dose of sustenance.
   Flow, a burgeoning fashion label founded by two sisters, Victoria and Veronika, understands how to design in harmony. Their Belgian–Ukrainian label, not to be confused with the Malaysia-based clothing retailer of the same name, embodies the art of creating just the right amount of what the Swedes call lagom, and it shows throughout their collections.
   Pieces are not overly designed. Instead, garments are braised predominantly in pure silk and cotton, then enriched by colour or finishing shape. The sisters experiment with volume, whilst using the unconventional as an undercurrent in designing. The result is a pensive (spring–summer 2015) collection full of playful prints with child-like embraces, Japanese-inspired shapes, and a modern perspective on sportswear.
   The designing pair has managed to produce a smörgĂ„sbord of distinct and charming garments to satiate fashion palates, especially if it favours edgy, artful, and quirky styles. Nonetheless, the pleasant appeal of a Flow garment might also be the fact that it can be worn by diverse women. ‘The most essential is to have that “special something” inside of you. That feminine, sensitive and elegant, yet kindly ironic thing that is very Flow. It is more about chemistry and common wit,’ the designers said, regarding the Flow woman.
   So, what’s the secret to the flourishing brand? Well, their approach to design is much like a gourmet recipe, using key ingredients to craft a tasty and well balanced dish to savour. Their main course is just also served with a side of passion, meticulousness, and confidence. And, like your grandmother’s recipe secrets, when it comes to the artful process, they prefer to keep it close to home.
   In fact, the sisters are involved in all aspects of the design process. However, having just under a dozen people in their design team certainly helps. ‘When we seek new co-workers, we primarily seek professionals who can become new members of the family. Creation of a collection is a group process and mutual understanding has great influence on the result,’ the designers confessed.
   In their spring–summer 2015 collection, you will see a palette of red, white, and blue with accented colours that look as vivid as a fresh floral bouquet. Pieces like the pyjama-esque silk garment with kookaburra bird drawings are eye-catching. The line is full of sprightly, sophisticated sportswear with a contemporary gracefulness that’s hard to ignore. But, that’s mostly because of the designer’s underlining influence, including the Ɠuvres of Niko Pirosmani and Ivan Semesyuk. ‘The spirit [of the line] is childish and patrician at the same time,’ the designers said.
   Flow’s offerings come in a range of styles, with pieces that can easily be translated into workwear, or casual elegance for the avant-garde art enthusiast. There are silhouettes for the classic fashion darling, as well as separates that exemplify opulence at its very core. The designers have fused a nourishing concoction of culture and art, creating a smart fashion paella, all which seems to give them a discerning compound of depth and simplicity.
   The young brand’s maturity in execution and outlook is well seasoned. And, with only a handful of collections under their belt, there’s much that they have already learned from having a fashion business. ‘It requires lots of time and enormous sources of energy … true fashion is always about the dream, the feeling, and the humanly approach,’ Flow said.
   You may view Flow’s upcoming autumn-winter collection at the BeNext showroom during this Paris fashion week, and at the TranoĂŻ exhibition shown in Milano.

Paris editor Lola Cristall will have her report from the Paris haute couture shows shortly in Lucire. Among them, Chanel showed its spring–summer 2015 collection beneath the dome at the Grand Palais, in one of the most memorable.
   By way of preview of Lucire’s upcoming piece, here are glimpses of a very delicate, light and airy collection from Karl Lagerfeld, shown in front of a celebrity audience that included Chanel ambassadors Kristen Stewart, Vanessa Paradis and Alice Dellal (who have all been chosen to be the faces of the Chanel handbags’ campaign to be released in April), Anna Mouglalis, Gaspard Ulliel, Clotilde Hesme, Alma Jodorowsky, Anne Berest, G-Dragon, Dylan Penn and Stacy Martin.
   The greenhouse setting was intentional as a bouquet appeared, with orange, red, pink, blue, yellow and green as Chanel’s colours for spring. Short tops, jackets and blouses, long coats, dropped waists, both full and pencil-cut skirts, wide brimmed hats and tweed jackets with three-quarter-length sleeves contribute to the vintage garden look. Embroidered flowers, tulle and sequins sparkle for the evening.

Cara Delevingne poses with a lion cub as she becomes TAG Heuer’s new ambassador

Cara Delevingne’s status as one of the celebrities of our era is further confirmed with TAG Heuer selecting her to be one of its new ambassadors. Calling her ‘the most disruptive “it girl” of the moment’, TAG Heuer has tapped into the model’s social media following (9 million on Instagram, 2 million on Twitter, 1·7 million on Facebook) to promote its range to a new audience.
   She was welcomed into the TAG Heuer family at the Salle MelpomĂšne at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, posing with a lion cub, in front of an audience of 150 VIPs and journalists. Tying in with the lion cub, the new TAG Heuer campaign will be hashtagged #Dont­Crack­UnderPressure.
   The lion is a symbol that Delevingne identifies with, and she had one tattooed on her right index finger in mid-2013.
   Delevingne wore a Karl Lagerfeld jacket at the event.
   Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer and President of LVMH Watches Worldwide, presented her with a TAG Heuer Formula One Steel and Black Ceramic Chronograph set with diamonds.
   Biver said, ‘The TAG Heuer family is not just an idea, it is a team, with true team spirit. We needed someone disruptive yet elegant like Cara to open our minds to the brashness and boldness of today’s youth. TAG Heuer has set its sights on “it-ness”, and Cara is just the person to help us get there.’
   The Daily Mail reported concern from Dr Neil D’Cruze of World Animal Protection, who told the newspaper, ‘Lion cubs are not photo props. Their health and well-being should not be compromised.
   â€˜They belong in the wild, not draped over a celebrity just to sell a designer watch.’

Paris shows solidarity in Sunday’s March for Unity

Lola Cristall

The March for Unity that took place today in Paris was announced as the largest demonstration in the history of France, with an estimated 1·5 million to 2 million on the capital’s streets. The interior ministry believes that there had not been so many since the liberation of Paris in August 1944. A number of people from around the world, politicians and celebrities walked the streets throughout the afternoon.
   Lucire’s Paris editor Lola Cristall took these photographs as she joined others to commemorate and celebrate the victims of Paris’s terror attacks last week.
   The deaths included staff at the satirical Charlie Hebdo, where cartoonists Charb, Cabu, Tignous et Wolinski (the pen names for StĂ©phane Charbonnier, who was also editor, Jean Cabut, Bernard Verlhac and Georges Wolinski) and police officers Franck Brinsolaro and Ahmed Merabat were slain in a massacre on Wednesday. Police officer Clarissa Jean-Philippe was killed the following day in a related attack, and four civilians were killed in a siege on Friday.
   â€˜While my domain is predominantly the luxury and entertainment sector, the pictures might be of interest to some people to see how so many came together in the city to support the innocent journalists, artists and victims,’ said Cristall.
   â€˜The city is coming together as one. They were phenomenal artists,’ she added.
   Those in the march chanted, ‘On est tous Charlie’ (‘We are all Charlie’) and ‘Charlie Charlie Charlie,’ holding up banners and placards, reading everything from ‘Je suis Charlie’ (‘I am Charlie’), which began trending on the day of the massacre on Tumblr and other social media, and ‘Nous sommes Charlie’ (‘We are Charlie’) to ‘Je suis Muslim’ (‘I am Muslim’). French flags, hearts and Charlie Hebdo covers were also seen in the march.
   World leaders also participated in the march, including French president François Hollande, HM Queen Rania of Jordan, German chancellor Angela Merkel, Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, British prime minister David Cameron, Malian president Ibrahim Boubacar KĂ«ita, Polish prime minister Ewa Kopacz, Turkish prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu, and Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko. Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, Egyptian foreign minister Sameh Shoukry, US attorney-general Eric Holder, European Council president Donald Tusk, and UK opposition leader Ed Miliband were also present.
   Reporters sans frontiĂšres were critical of the presence of Davutoglu and Shoukry, as their countries had restricted press freedoms.
   Public transport was free in Paris to discourage private car use for the march.
   Earlier in the week, Jean Paul Gaultier and his staff posed for a photograph where they held up ‘Je suis Charlie’ print-outs, showing unity with the fallen journalists.
