News in brief: Lands’ End Sport launches three lines; Jane Iredale quad bronzers redesigned

Lucire staff/13.35


Lands’ End has extended its brand into a Sport line, which the company says is in line with its founder Gary Comer’s ethos. Comer had invested in developing the Comer Center in Dodgeville, Wisc. in 1989 to promote employee health and wellness.
   Lands’ End Sport includes surf, performance and athletic collections for men and women. The company notes its surf collection is functional and fashionable: rash guards are UPF 50 when wet; neoprene jackets have flatlock seams to prevent chafing; and full suits are made with bonded neoprene to protect the body from irritants. The performance collection comprises three categories: speed (high-impact), studio (low-impact), and street (post-workout wear), again with functional features for moisture wicking in the cases of the first two. Finally, the athletic collection, dubbed Athleisure, comprises polos, T-shirts, sweatshirts, totes and accessories.
   In other news, Jane Iredale’s quad bronzers have been redesigned for summer. Rose Dawn (pink and copper shades), Sunbeam (cool pink and bronze shades), and Moonglow (warm, golden shades) are now more portable, and can be easily applied all over or on cheeks, eyes and even lips. The quad bronzers are formulated with antioxidant protection from pine bark and pomegranate extracts. Each quad retails for ÂŁ34; the empty compact at ÂŁ12.

LA beauty: Milani Cosmetics and Orly showcase new releases and custom shades

Earlier this year, Mattel released a new line of Barbie dolls with real-world bodies and skin tones. DĂŒsseldorf firm Doob-3D (with stores in New York, LA and San Francisco) does one better by allowing people to have themselves done as a doll or action figure. The proprietary technology takes the form of a room outfitted with 360 degrees worth of cameras. Your DoppelgĂ€nger may be a bit of an investment (mine would retail for US$295), but it does build on the “teachable” moment Mattel started with its new Barbie line that all bodies are beautiful in their own way.
   Of course as we all want to be our best selves, in doll or human form, Los Angeles-based Milani Cosmetics came to help local LA media get “dolled up” for the opportunity, while promoting their newest products in the process.
   Tina, my make-up artist endeavoured to take 10 years off me non-surgically with a ‘strobing and contour highlighting’ technique, using Milani’s Conceal & Perfect, an oil-free foundation, using two shades and a brush to evenly distribute and mix the make-up. Next, she moved on to my eyes, using the Everyday Eyes Powder Shadow Collection eye set in the popular Nudes palette, and added extra oomph with Lash Trifecta Lengthens+Curls+Separates tube mascara with a versatile tip. As this mascara passed my stringent contact lens test, it may just end up becoming my go-to brand.
   The finishing touch was a neutral shade of their new Liquid to Matte Amore Matte Lip CrĂšme smear resistant collection. The next day, Leyla Messian and I tried out the collection prior to going out for happy hour. Our verdict is that the colours are first-rate, but the smear resistance only goes as far as the cocktails. Oils from some foods may cause the colour to smear.
   Milani’s other new add-on are its line of nourishing Meta Matte Lusters, which are comparable to the lip oils Clarins rolled out last year (which Jody Miller and I tried out their Orange County event). It’s a very appealing lip treat with a slight tint and a lower price—and it’s vegan, too!
   Orly, a Los Angeles nail products company sold in pharmacies and beauty supply stores, took its act to the beachy, upscale nail salon Olive & June in Beverly Hills. Press got some “hands-on” TLC after a pair of colour “mixologists” created a custom-blended hue. I was looking for the perfect red, and got their version of it in a poppy shade I called ‘Fresh Watermelon’. Perhaps I was inspired by a party earlier in the week at Le Pain Quotidien’s West Hollywood’s flagship restaurant. The chain rolled out its vegan and vegetarian summer menu with Juicero, and fresh watermelon juice coolers were served to wash down all that flavourful goodness.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor

Kerry Washington’s OPI nail lacquer collaboration launched; Kate Bosworth endorses Aczone gel

Lucire staff/2.49


OPI’s autumn–winter 2016–17 nail lacquer collection takes its inspiration from Washington, DC, and it’s the first product of the collaboration between the company and its spokeswoman and creative ambassador, Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress Kerry Washington.
   Washington worked alongside OPI co-founder Suzi Weiss-Fischmann to develop and name the 12 shades, available in both lacquer and GelColor formulas.
   Weiss-Fischmann noted of her collaborator, ‘She exemplifies the spirit of Washington, DC women, and her bold approach to life is evident everywhere from her acting to her activism to her red carpet style.’
   Washington said in a release, ‘It has been so inspiring to work with Suzi—the first lady of nails—on creating and naming this collection. It’s a real art and science to develop colour that will appeal to women of all types and skin tones and that mirrors and complements the runway trends for the season.
   â€˜Nail colour is a simple but impactful form of individual expression. Wearing bold shades like these is empowering and uplifting, not to mention a perfect way to show some election year spirit!’
   The collection goes on sale from August 1 at John Lewis and Debanhams in the UK.
   In another celebrity endorsement, Allergan plc has announced that Kate Bosworth is its spokeswoman for Aczone gel, a prescription topical treatment for acne patients. Bosworth attended an event for Aczone in New York alongside dermatologist Dr Joshua Zeichner. The company notes that acne affects 40 million to 50 million people in the US, and 85 per cent of people between 12 and 24 struggle with it.

Lucire staff/21.51

Former Lucire model Brooklyn Decker, now better known for her role in Netflix’s Grace and Frankie, stars in Chrysler’s new campaign for its 2017 Pacifica minivan.
   The campaign sees Decker along with the ‘PacifiKids’, Miles (aged 11), Izzy (10) and Harper (8), explain the new model to her, which is Fiat Chrysler’s replacement for both the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan (the latter remains in production for the time being).
   A series of videos will dĂ©but in advance of the US Memorial Day weekend on Facebook, according to the company. The first video can be found here.
   The PacifiKids understand technology in the way modern children can, and take the viewer through features such as the Pacifica’s tri-pane panoramic sunroof and voice-activated infotainment system.
   Decker is a new mother, having given birth to a boy on September 30, 2015.
   The Pacifica is reputed to be the best in class, keeping Fiat Chrysler ahead in the large MPV segment which it created back in the 1980s.
   Fiat Chrysler says there are two additional videos featuring the PacifiKids. The campaign was created with Chrysler’s social media agency, Society.

The Body Shop launches Bio-Bridges programme, regenerating and protecting 75,000,000 mÂČ of forest

On Tuesday, the Body Shop unveiled its Bio-Bridges programme, which aims to regenerate and protect 75,000,000 mÂČ of forest.
   The programme will not only see forests protected from exploitation and unsustainable harvesting, the Body Shop wants to ensure that animals and plant species within them thrive.
   The first project is the Khe Nuoc Trong forest in north-central Vietnam, home of the red-shanked douc, saola (known as the Asian unicorn and one of the rarest animals on earth), Bengal slow loris and Burmese python. All of these species are threatened by hunting and illegal logging, and the Body Shop notes that nearby habitats are still suffering from the effects of Agent Orange used during the Vietnam War. The World Land Trust and Viet Nature Conservation Centre are working with the Body Shop, patrolling the forest and setting up camera traps, while working with the local community, promoting sustainable forest use and farming.
   Promoting this project to Body Shop customers is an in-store and online campaign called Help Reggie Find Love, featuring Reggie, a red-shanked douc. Each customer transaction will restore and protect 1 mÂČ of habitat in Khe Nuoc Trong.
   Christopher Davis, director of corporate responsibility and campaigns for the Body Shop, said, ‘We want to focus on actively enriching the world’s biodiversity. These areas of forest in Vietnam are biological treasure troves that are being destroyed through poaching and illegal logging. Bio-Bridges are an innovative way to create protected corridors of biodiversity that allow the wider forest to flourish and its inhabitants to breed and thrive. In Vietnam, within five to ten years we hope to be able to see endangered species multiply. We’ll be promoting Help Reggie Find Love online and in our stores in 65 countries around the world, helping raise awareness of this serious issue in a different way and allowing our customers to make a direct and positive impact with every purchase.’
   The company has embarked on this latest corporate social responsibility programme as part of its new global Enrich Not Exploit commitment launched in February. It recognizes that protecting and promoting biodiversity is good not only for the planet, including combatting climate change, but for the natural ingredients it sources for its products.
   The second Bio-Bridge programme begins in late 2016 in the Garo Hills in India, in partnership with World Land Trust and Wildlife Trust of India.

Lalique’s renowned name was established by French glass designer RenĂ© Jules Lalique over a century ago and currently represents flawless ingenuity in jewellery, vases and clocks. Lalique’s array of perfumes feature beautiful scents in sophisticated, fragile, luminous and extravagant glassworks. Year after year, the brand releases a collectible limited-edition flaçon with intricate, delicate designs on the bottle, marrying a stunning fragrance with a masterpiece. Its most recent release is the Bacchantes Limited Edition 2017 bottle, with a poetic vision of the beauty of voluptuous, feminine curves as exquisitely expressed in glass.
   In addition, Lalique’s RĂȘve d’Infini is a precious creation reviving Lalique’s trademark, the infinity symbol. Perfumer Richard Ibanez assembles hints of floral aromas, leaving behind traces of rose absolute, cedarwood, peach, bergamot, lychee, freesia, vanilla musk and sandalwood, permitting the top notes and bottom notes to intertwine.
   Encre Noire Ă  l’ExtrĂȘme is a masculine fragrance that radiates with grandiose, dominating essences. The dark wood cap on the bottle is captivating and elegant. Bergamot, cypress, incense, Java and HaĂŻti vetiver, iris, sandalwood, patchouli and Siam benzoin contribute to the masculinity of the scent.
   Les Compositions ParfumĂ©es comprises of five unisex fragrances, each containing highly concentrated scents of luxury contained in an ornate bottle. Gold, Silver, Bronze, Electrum and Zamak each have their own sweet and succulent scent that can be worn for any occasion.
   Meanwhile, Thierry Mugler’s divine eau de parfum Angel Muse was launched under the expression ‘the new addiction you will #HateToLove.’ The intergalactic theme extends from the bottle to the scent itself: the bottle is described as a ‘cosmic pebble’, with a silver lining around the edges and a transparent centre. The electrifying scent is enticing and powerful with lavish hints of grapefruit, pink pepper, patchouli, vetiver, rose and hazelnut.—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor
