A Lucire special promotion

Above Clémence Poésy.

Chlo√© has managed to be ahead of the curve this decade, from signing two up-and-coming actresses at the beginning of the decade‚ÄĒImogen Poots and Camille Rowe Pourcheresse‚ÄĒand, more recently, Cl√©mence Po√©sy, all of whom exhibit different facets of the brand when it comes to its fragrances.
   Chlo√© has managed to be true to its youthful, natural image, while injecting a sense of seduction and modernity. It‚Äôs completely in line with the Chlo√© clothing line‚ÄĒand it‚Äôs imperative that the two work side by side.
   The fragrances, which are from Coty Prestige, are distinguished not just by their scents, but by the faces that promote them. Poots, Rowe Pourcheresse and Po√©sy speak to the younger demographic sought by Coty. Their natural look‚ÄĒthe actresses themselves are regularly photographed wearing nude make-up‚ÄĒties in perfectly with the natural scents of the Chlo√© fragrances, which are always subtle and never over the top. Chlo√©, which was a trend-setting brand in 1950s Paris, happily works in its home city in its promotions.
   Chlo√© Love Story, which was launched in July, is a perfect example, featuring orange blossom, neroli and jasmine stephanotis. The signature Chlo√© scent, meanwhile, is fresh, floral and smooth, with pink peony, freesia, lychee as top notes, magnolia flower, lily of the valley, and rose in the middle, and cedarwood, amber and honey as basenotes. Roses de Chlo√© features Damascene rose and magnolia, while See by Chlo√© has bergamot and apple.
   The range is one of the most youthful and well defined that we know.
   Chlo√© is having a busy Christmas season, focusing on the messages of love, joy and happiness‚ÄĒwishing you a happy holiday season from Chlo√© fragrances. The New Year is going to see even more promotions: as Chlo√© leads up to the 40th anniversary of its fragrances in 2015.

There’s more news from the Kering group as the company continues to shake up its brands: Puma has announced that Rihanna is the creative director of its women’s training line.
   The singer joins Usain Bolt and Mario Balotelli as a global brand ambassador, and attended her first meeting in Germany with the design team on Monday.
   Rihanna says she will be ‘all over it’ when it comes to her involvement with the line. Puma says her influence on the women’s training line will be felt early in 2015.
   Kering wants to boost Puma’s profile alongside Nike and Adidas, and Rihanna’s celebrity status should earn it new adherents.
   Puma CEO Bj√łrn Gulden said in a release, ‘Signing Rihanna is a fantastic step for Puma. Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition‚ÄĒall these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand. She also aligns perfectly with the values Puma strives for: to be confident, brave, determined and joyful. With a strong portfolio in football, running and motorsport, finding an inspiring partner for women‚Äôs training was very important. Rihanna was a natural choice for us. We‚Äôre delighted to have her as a partner, and we‚Äôre looking forward to what‚Äôs to come.’
   Adam Petrick, Puma’s global brand and marketing director, said, ‘Rihanna brings joy to audiences around the world but also ignites and awes. Puma admires her for never waiting for the next big thing, but more so for driving what happens next‚ÄĒin fashion, style, music and soon to be‚ÄĒsports. We can’t wait to empower women worldwide with Rihanna‚ÄĒshe demonstrates a body confidence and determination that is the exact representation of the Puma Woman.’
   Rihanna has already represented brands such as MAC, Giorgio Armani, Nivea and Renault.

Dita von Teese has unveiled a new collection, called XXXtian, as part of her lingerie range, in collaboration with Christian Louboutin.
   XXXtian, pronounced ‘X X Christian,’ features an exclusive silk toile de jouy print developed by Louboutin for his shoes and handbags in his spring‚Äďsummer 2011 collection.
   The toile shows von Teese in her gilded birdcage dancing with her feather fans, and being fitted for custom Louboutin fetish boots, says the company.
   ‚ÄėChristian and I have been dear friends for years, and he has created many custom pairs of shoes for my burlesque shows. When this toile originally appeared in his shoe and handbag collection, I was honoured to have such a tribute,’ said von Teese. ‘I‚Äôm so thrilled that he generously allowed me to offer this risqu√© print in luscious Italian silk in my Tulip collection, plus a glamorous 1940s style neglig√©e and dressing gown for the ultimate luxury lingerie experience.’
   Louboutin said, ‘The Toile de Jouy is the essence of French 18th-century feminine sophistication. No one can be closer to a modern Marie-Antoinette than Dita, her curves and wit celebrated on a canvas dedicated to adorn either a shoe or divine lingerie.’
   The XXXtian collection comprises an underwire bra, corselette, garter belt, thong, bikini, a high-waisted brief and, for the first time, two chemises and a robe.
   It is available at Myer.com.au and glamuse.com.

Frida Giannini, Patrizio di Marco to leave Gucci; Giannini’s last collection to be autumn ’15

Gucci creative director Frida Giannini and CEO Patrizio di Marco will leave the label shortly, parent company Kering SA, formerly PPR, announced Friday.
   Giannini will depart after showing her autumn‚Äďwinter 2015 collection at the end of February, and no successor has been named. She will have worked for over 12 years at Gucci, and has been creative director since 2006. She had succeeded Tom Ford at the label.
   Di Marco, who has been with Gucci since 2009, will leave at the end of the year, with his role taken up by Marco Bizzarri, who is presently Kering’s luxury couture and leather goods’ division. Like di Marco, Bizzarri is formerly of Bottega Veneta.
   Gucci’s revenues have been dropping, suffering from a perception that its brand is not exclusive enough. Demand in China is down this year, while third-quarter sales showed a 1¬∑6 per cent fall. Turnover has also fallen in recent years.
   Kering had already named new CEOs in October at Bottega Veneta, Brioni and Christopher Kane as part of an internal overhaul. It also owns Stella McCartney and Puma.

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

Lucire staff/10.59

Karl Lagerfeld has unveiled the 13th Chanel M√©tiers 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‚ÄďSalzburg collection, featuring Cara Delevingne, who not only closed the show, but is the face of the collection itself.
   The presentation, at the Leopoldskron ch√Ęteau, 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.
   ‚ÄėYou 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‚Äôs like fur, it‚Äôs like flying fur. If you look at them closely, it‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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‚Äďsummer 2014 white silk cr√™pe cap sleeve embellished jacket with structured peplum, pencil skirt and black alligator belt to the ninth annual L’Or√©al Women of Worth event.
   L’Or√©al 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’Or√©al 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‚ÄĒreaders might like the title.

In order to indulge in light-tasting guilty pleasures, Yohan Kim‚ÄĒonce Jo√ęl Robuchon‚Äôs pastry chef‚ÄĒintroduced a number of delicate French pastries from financiers with green tea to madeleine and p√Ęte 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.‚ÄĒLola Cristall, Paris editor

Camille Cerf, Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais, has been crowned Miss France 2015 tonight from the Zenith in Orléans.

Have jacket, will travel: Jonathon Hall gives his holiday menswear tips

Lucire staff/12.08

Pin It

New Zealand menswear tailors Rembrandt Suits and Wayward Heir have revealed their summer 2014‚Äď15 collections, paying homage to the coveted summer holiday. Designer Jonathon Hall puts the loyal jacket front and centre in the Rembrandt collection, with the pi√®ce de r√©sistance being the crease resistant ultimate travel jacket, the Halcyon.
   To prove their confidence in the jacket, professional footballer Paul Ifill tested the Halcyon (captured in the video below), and Hall recently took the jacket on a 15-day tour of Europe‚Äôs fabric fairs (search Instagram for the hashtag #halcyonontour, and see some of the photographs at the bottom of this article).

   With the holiday season fast approaching, Hall takes us through Rembrandt and Wayward Heir‚Äôs top ten must-haves for a summer escape.

   1. Rembrandt‚Äôs wool‚Äďmohair Halcyon, the definitive travel jacket. This unlined lightweight jacket, available in navy and silver-grey, is strong and durable with an exceptional resistance to wrinkles, making it the ultimate fabric for travelling across town, or around the world.

   2. Rembrandt cotton-stretch Beck trousers: narrow fit with plenty of stretch, perfect dressed up or down and exceptionally comfortable to wear on long-haul flights.

   3. An unlined cotton or linen jacket; for a more relaxed look choose between Wayward Heir‚Äôs Rimini and Rembrandt‚Äôs double-breasted Cornwall jacket.

   4. Blue Hoxton cotton-stretch jeans: they perfectly fill the gap between a jean and a chino.

   5. Wayward Heir Japanese selvedge Garage jeans: a great pair of jeans can take you anywhere.

   6. At least one slim white shirt, a classic that you can wear with anything, for any event.

   7. A Rembrandt Liberty print shirt: dress it up, dress it down, enjoy.

   8. Good shoes. Ones that you‚Äôve worn in. Don‚Äôt travel with a brand new pair of shoes, you‚Äôll regret it.

   9. A Rembrandt reversible belt: it can do double-duty with either black or brown shoes.

   10. Pocket squares: even if you‚Äôre not wearing a tie, a pocket square in your jacket completes any look. Just make sure one of them is white linen.

Travel tip

When flying, the best way to keep creases out of your jacket (even the crease-resistant Halcyon) is to hang it. A seat-back hook is better than folding, but ideally you could request it gets hung in the cabin wardrobe.
