News round-up: Dilmah hosts high teas in New Zealand; Trish Peng searches for new face

Dilmah Tea New Zealand

Dilmah Tea hosted a series of high teas around New Zealand, promoting its socially responsible message along with the rising interest in tea mixology.
   Its Wellington stop on Tuesday, hosted by Dilmah founder Merrill J. Fernando and his son, Dilhan C. Fernando, the company’s chief marketing officer, and in the presence of Her Excellency Zodwa Lallie, South African High Commissioner, was a particular treat, with a menu designed by Dilmah Real High Tea Gold Medallist Laurent Loudeac, executive chef of the Museum Art Hotel.
   Held at the hotel’s famed Hippopotamus restaurant, guests were treated to everything from ora king salmon sashimi—which we would label as our favourite of the afternoon—to lap sang souchong yoghurt panna cotta and a lychee-infused jasmine tea and rosewater caviar, complemented by various Dilmah teas.
   The selection included Dilmah’s Ran Watte Single Region Ceylon tea, its green tea with jasmine flowers, and its rose tea with French vanilla.
   The highlight was the address given my Merrill J. Fernando, after a video looking back through the history of Dilmah and how his famed catchphrase, ‘Do try it,’ was created by a New Zealand agency.
   He spoke of how Dilmah goes beyond the requirements of Fair Trade with its ethically made tea, because those who grow the tea share in the equity. The value-added components of Dilmah are not done by international traders, but by Sri Lankans, and the company constantly puts money back into the community, funding education, health care, cultural and even business activities.
   Some rivals force down the prices that tea farmers can sell at, keeping them poor, while profiting from the value-added components in the marketing and production chain.
   Mr Fernando also stressed that Ceylon tea is the finest, and that Dilmah, to preserve that integrity, does not mix its teas with those from other countries.
   Through a Trade Me auction, the Merrill J. Fernando Charitable Foundation is also raising money for a culinary centre in Sri Lanka which will train people living with disabilities or have been disadvantaged, so that they can find employment to support themselves.
   They can be found on Trade Me, with the auctions closing on July 27. Items include Parawa Estate Ingalalla Grand Reserve 2007 wine, valued at over NZ$1,250; an individually numbered caddy of a very rare tea, FBOP 1, from the Dilmah Opapa Estate in Sri Lanka; a night for two at the Langham Hotel in Auckland; and two nights for two at the Museum Art Hotel in Wellington.
   In other New Zealand news, new label Trish Peng is running a Fresh Face modelling competition as part of her New Zealand Fashion Week début next month, with the help of L’Oréal Professionnel and Vanity Walk.
   New Zealand women are invited to enter via the Trish Peng Facebook page. Peng and Vanity Walk, a modelling agency, will judge from the uploaded photo and details.
   Entries close August 2. The winner becomes the face of the next Trish Peng campaign, opens Peng’s fashion week show, receives a modelling contract with Vanity Walk, and wins a year’s supply of L’Oréal Professionnel products.—Jack Yan, Publisher, with Lucire staff

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 début 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 dégustation 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.

Royal New Zealand Ballet’s Allegro: Five Short Ballets to première in Auckland July 30

Above Larry Keigwin’s Megalopolis.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s next season, Allegro: Five Short Ballets, will première in Auckland on July 30 before travelling to Hamilton, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, Invercargill and Dunedin. It will mark the last under artistic director Ethan Stiefel.
   ‘This programme features a world premiere from New Zealander Daniel Belton; two pieces from New York choreographer Larry Keigwin, who quickly became a Kiwi audience favourite after the success of his work Final Dress in 2012; a neoclassical work by one of the most celebrated choreographers of all time, Balanchine; and a brilliant and fun piece from Johan Kobborg,’ said Stiefel in a release.
   Belton’s work, Satellites, blends dance with kinetic sculpture (by Jim Murphy), animation (by Jac Grenfell) and electronic music (by Jan-Bas Bollen). Keigwin has created Mattress Suite, with six scenes about love affairs, either on or near a mattress (to the music of Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Giuseppe Verdi and Etta James), and Megalopolis (music by Steve Reich and MIA). It is the first time Keigwin has allowed a company other than his own to perform his work.
   Gillian Murphy will appear for the final time as the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s principal guest artist in Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante, to the music of Tchaikovsky, while Kobborg’s Les Lutins sees three dancers, a violinist (Benjamin Baker) and pianist (Michael Pansters, in his RNZB début) live on stage, performing music by Bazzini and Wieniawski-Kreisler.
   Allegro runs from July 30 to August 23.

The 60th Taormina Film Fest has started in the picturesque Sicilian town, with Maserati as a sponsor, and Claudia Cardinale, Margareth Madè and Raoul Bova among the red-carpet arrivals that we’ve spotted.
   Cardinale arrived for the screening of Manoel de Oliveira’s Gebo et l’ombre, in which she stars. Other actors at the festival on day one include Bo Derek, Melanie Griffith, Eva Longoria, Carmen Maura, Paz Vega, Ben Stiller, and Matt Dillon.
   Dragon Trainer 2, the opening film of the festival, had its première at the Greek Theatre, with director and screenwriter Dean de Blois present.
   And as this is Italy, the screening was followed by a broadcast of the Italy v. England match at the World Cup, live from Brazil.
   Maserati, celebrating its centenary this year, is ferrying VIPs in its smaller Ghibli III and flagship Quattroporte VI saloons at the event.
   The festival runs from June 14 to 21.

From modelling to fashion, what makes Brazil special?

David M. Benett

Above Adriana Lima, appearing here for Victoria’s Secret, exemplifies the sensual Brazilian model who commands attention.

With the World Cup round the corner, the focus is on Brazil, including Brazilian models (it is the home of Gisèle Bündchen, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Isabeli Fontana), and Brazilian fashion. Our series of videos from Brazil provide an insight into the country.
   The first, with Patrick Lemire, IMG Paris’s director of bookings, analyses what makes Brazilian models special. Lima, Ambrosio and Bündchen regularly take out the top-five spots in earning terms, according to Forbes, and Lemire believes it’s their power of seduction.
   In the translation, Lemire says, ‘In Brazil, there are two academies: you have football academy for the boys and modelling school for the girls. When we decide to go to Brazil to find new talent over there, our first impression is that we are quite taken aback, because instantly you are fully immersed in this amazingly relaxed, feel-good atmosphere.
   ‘She barely has to step into the room and she’s dancing the samba with you and within three seconds you are under her spell, which is great. I have never met a Brazilian who is morose, sad, who lacks passion or that desire to come, to fight and to conquer.’
   Twenty-nine-year-old fashion designer Barbara Casasola is the talk of the nation, after serving her earlier years at Roberto Cavalli, Lanvin, Sonia Rykiel and Chloé. Her interview below shows what drives her, how she mixes femininity with modernity, and how Brazil impacts on her design sensibilities.
   ‘A bikini and a pair of Havaianas’ is how one might describe Brazilian fashion, with a strong beach culture. Casasola and Havaianas France director Hervé Pinot both talk about this culture: how changing a bikini daily is part of the beach scene there, and how Havaianas have become cult. Brazil sells 350 million to 400 million pairs per annum.
   Finally, our fourth video examines some of the international labels hailing from Brazil: Osklen, Alexandre Herchcovitch (regularly covered by us at New York Fashion Week), Pedro Lourenço, Barbara Casasola, Filhas de Gaia, Animale, Espaço Fashion and Ausländer.

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 première 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 déco 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

Lucire’s Instagram round-up, June 6: Natalia Vodianova nude to Lupita Nyong’o’s nails

Model Natalia Vodianova made headlines with her Instagram this week, showing off a nude image with her breastfeeding son, photographed by Paolo Roversi.
   The photograph was dedicated to her husband, Antoine Arnault, for his birthday. It was later revealed by Vodianova on her Instagram that the photographer was Roversi, who ‘was one of the first to photograph me all the way back in 2001’, she wrote.
   Maxim was born on May 2—Vodianova Instagrammed his first photo at the time, noting he weighed in at 4·2 kg (9 lb 4 oz).
   Model of the moment Barbara Palvin had a more casual photo spending time with her sister, Anita, posted cycling, while the actress we have dubbed ‘woman of the year’, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, showed off her aqua-lacquer nails and matching cellphone cover from Maui, Hawai‘i.
   Natasha Poly was also lounging by the pool in shades, a leather jacket and scarf, shot in Paris, from which she departed on Friday, and actress Jessica Chastain has been spending time in Roma, checking out the Colosseo (and noting its restoration) and, in another photo, posing with a Fiat nuova 500 (the 1957–77 variety).
   Liya Kebede notes that the only jewellery she wore to the CFDA awards this year was a tattoo from Stone Paris for Colette. Ralph & Russo was in an awards’ mood, when it posted a composite image of Angelina Jolie wearing its designs, wishing the actress a happy birthday earlier this week.
   Model Nina Agdal, too, kept things casual, sharing her images with Vogue Australia after a trip to Sydney, and posting one of them on her ’Gram.

With summer officially arrived in the northern hemisphere, the stylish Instagrams out there are getting more social.
   Barbara Palvin, who is our latest model obsession, posted a shot from the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc prior to the AmFAR Gala, coincidentally the same as the one we published through another source. The model appears alongside Lara Stone, Karlie Koss and Bianca Balti. There are more formal shots, but we love this one for its energy and candidness.
   Doutzen Kroes has also gone for a group shot of four as summer begins, sharing a photograph with fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo and Lily Aldridge. Kroes, currently pregnant, is pictured with her fellow models holding her baby bump. Kroes, 29, is expecting her second child in July, with husband DJ Sunnery James.
   Heidi Klum is only posing with former Spice Girl Mel B, but has posted four images in one on her ’Gram, as the singer celebrated her 39th birthday in California. Klum, who turns 41 on June 1, gave Brown a shout-out with ‘Love U’ on her Instagram.
   Our other model obsession, Malaika Firth, has been hanging with two ‘Kenyan buddies’, Nellie Kim and Jesca, at Kenya Coffee House in Romford, a café which partners directly with coffee growers in Kenya, and claims to go further than Fair Trade. It’s great to see Firth support an ethical retailer, using her fame to do so.
   Isabeli Fontana, meanwhile, is promoting one of the brands she models for, Morena Rosa, based in her home country of Brazil. Fontana has modelled for Morena Rosa for some time, which she calls one of her country’s most beloved brands. The label reached the million-fan milestone on Facebook, giving Fontana a reason to celebrate on her ’Gram.
   It’s also a beachy scene for model Valentina Zelyaeva, as she gives a glimpse behind the scenes at her Piz Buin campaign, directed by Anders Hallberg with Peter Riis helming the photography. Similarly, influential Swedish-based blogger Kenza Zouiten shows off her figure on the beach in Barcelona in a bikini top by IvyRevel.
   Finally, Bar Rafaeli and make-up artist Moran Stavizki wish fans ‘Shalom Shabbat’ as the weekend begins.
