In brief: James Wines’s Erotica collection; limited-edition Joséphine bag; Bogner Fire & Ice for spring ’21

Filed by Lucire staff/February 14, 2021/11.40





Designer, artist and photographer Paula Sweet, whose work has regularly appeared in our pages, has announced a collection based around the work of SITE (Sculpture in the Environment) founder and principal, architect James Wines. Wines, 88, has created two drawings for the Erotica collection, comprising T-shirts, tops, leggings, pillows, stationery, cups and shower curtains. More at paulasweet.com.

Ludovica Mascheroni has shown Joséphine, a limited-edition pillow bag commemorating International Women’s Day next month. The bag is dedicated to Joséphine de Beauharnais, a patron of the arts, who brought an ancient Persian paisley pattern into vogue in Europe during the 19th century. She was reputed to be the first woman in Europe with an entire wardrobe in the paisley print. The 2021 interpretation on Mascheroni’s pillow bag is hand-made in 100 per cent cashmere, with leather and brass details, and retails for €729.

Bogner’s spring–summer 2021 Cold Hawaii campaign sees its Fire & Ice designs modelled by professional surfers Mor, Vahine, Robert and AJ in northern Denmark, in what the company calls ‘every adventurer’s dream’. There’s solitude, a rough climate and enviable waves, and the designs are equipped to take on those increasingly long days in the season ahead.


 


Katharina Mazepa, Shannon McMullen, Kelsie Jean Smeby model Guess’s spring ’21 accessories

Filed by Lucire staff/February 8, 2021/10.03




The Guess accessories’ campaign for spring 2021 has been shot by Yasmine Kateb, and features models Shannon McMullen, Kelsie Jean Smeby, and Katharina Mazepa, the former beauty queen and Instagram personality.
   Mazepa says becoming a Guess model has fulfilled a long-held ambition, ‘making my childhood dream come true.’
   She says that the brand’s co-founder and chief creative officer Paul Marciano was responsible for discovering her.
   Rob Sargsyan did the make-up, Esther Vásquez the hair, and Yosh Yañez the styling.
   The women follow in the footsteps of Anna Nicole Smith, Claudia Schiffer and Laetitia Casta, among the models who put the brand on the map.
   Marciano, the youngest of the four brothers who started the label, had been caught up among allegations of sexual assault for some time. Most prominently, in 2015, Kate Upton and four others made allegations, later settled for a total of US$500,000. Marciano announced his resignation as a Guess board member and chief creative officer from Guess in mid-2018, but the company reversed its position in January 2019. Allegations have continued to surface, most recently in the California courts, where the attorney representing the latest accuser noted that they knew of seven other women who have gone on the record against Marciano.

 


Nomos Glashütte shows classic timepieces for Valentine’s Day

Filed by Lucire staff/February 4, 2021/10.57



Nomos Glashütte, the largest manufacturer of mechanical watches in Germany, has a Valentine’s Day collection, spanning a variety of models, both self-winding and automatic, offered as single watches or in pairs. The reverse sides of the watches are big enough for a personal message to be engraved.
   Nomos also develops its own movements, and a great deal of the watches’ components are handmade. Only when the most demanding of precision is required—say a thousandth of a millimetre—does the company opt for machinery.
   The duo Nomos Glashütte has in mind is the Minimatik and Minimatik Champagne, powered by an ultra-thin automatic calibre. Individual watches include the Orio 33 in rose, the Orion 38 (top), and the classic Tangente, all of which have the brand’s quality stainless steel assembly. Finally, there is the Nomos sundial ring.

Filed by Lucire staff/February 3, 2021/21.13




Deus Ex Machina has collaborated with Specsavers on a new eyewear collection, now at stores across New Zealand.
   The new collection comprises twelve optical and six sunglass styles. It’s those fine Deus Ex Machina details that mark them out: asymmetric pins on the frame, which recall biker jacket buttons, as well as the Deus logo on the temples. Our picks include the Deus Sun RX 4, a classic pilot style with a double bridge, the Deus Sun RX 5, an aviator style, and the Deus 7, with an angular frame for those who find ovals and quadrangles too everyday.
   Juan Carlos Camargo, Specsavers’ head of frames, says, ‘We’re thrilled to add another stylish brand to our expanding designer portfolio and even more excited that this is an Australian-born brand. The Deus brand continues to achieve success on the global stage, and we are proud to be able to offer glasses wearers high-quality stylish products with the expert care, fit and Specsavers quality and value.’
   Prices range from NZ$299 to NZ$459 for two pairs, single vision.


 


Freya Rose shows jewellery edit for Valentine’s Day

Filed by Lucire staff/February 2, 2021/20.58





In our pages, Freya Rose is known more for shoes than for jewellery, although she grew up in the jewellery industry—her mother is Barbara Tipple, the four-time de Beers award-winning jewellery designer, whose work is exhibited at the V&A.
   For Valentine’s Day, she has a jewellery collection of occasion and bridal items at the ready, and in true Freya Rose fashion the collection is sustainable with luxurious materials, including pearl and precious metals, with prices around the £75–135 mark. These are handmade in Bali, Indonesia. ‘We’re proud to being keeping these ancient Balinese crafts alive, supporting the talented artists who help bring our designs to life,’ they write.
   Going up the price range are items with a hand-crafted bee motif: the Kate bag, at £245, and a pair of bee shoe clips at just £95. Going well with those clips is Freya Rose’s Soraya Ivory shoes at £695 a pair.
