With the entire Vogue US archive already available to researchers, it was a matter of time before its rival, Harper’s Bazaar, followed.
   ProQuest has announced that it is creating the first digital archive of the magazine, from 1867 to the latest issue. It joins ProQuest’s earlier digitalizations of Vogue and Women’s Wear Daily. The archives are known for their ease of search as well as their high-resolution imagery.
   â€˜We know scholars and students are using more than journals and books to conduct their research,’ said ProQuest’s senior director of product management for humanities, Stephen Brooks. ‘Digitization programmes such as this one with Harper’s Bazaar unlock valuable, historical primary sources from the confines of print, making them easy to access, text mine and use within researchers’ workflows.’
   Harper’s Bazaar, originally Harper’s Bazar, was the US’s first fashion magazine. Carmel Snow, Diana Vreeland, Elizabeth Tilberis, Alexey Brodovitch, Man Ray, Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Andy Warhol, Daisy Fellowes, Gloria Guinness, and Eleanor Hoyt Brainerd have all featured prominently in the magazine since its inception.

Top H&M will launch a complete beauty line. Above H&M opened in Perú with 2,000 queuing up.

Hennes & Mauritz has dabbled in beauty before, but this autumn will see the Swedish fashion retailer launch a full line, with make-up, hair care, body care and beauty tools. The company says the range will complement its fashion line and change seasonally, and that it will go out to all 900 stores worldwide and online at hm.com. It will consist of 700 products, with seasonal drops of new and limited-edition colour collections, and replace all current beauty products at H&M.
   There will be two additional subsidiary collections: a premium line and an Ecocert-approved, sustainable Conscious line.
   â€˜We are very excited to offer “fashion for the face” at H&M. It’s an opportunity to be inventive and creative, and to have fun with colours,’ said Sara Wallander, concept designer at H&M Beauty in a release.
   The announcement comes on the heels of H&M’s announcement that it has opened a store in Perú on Saturday. As with many of its earlier openings, there were plenty of fans queuing up to get a first taste of the Swedish retailer. The new store, one of the largest globally, is located at the Jockey Plaza mall in Lima, spans three floors, and includes H&M Home. The autumn fashion collections for men, women and children and the Conscious collection are represented.
   Of the 2,000 who came to the opening, H&M handed out gift cards: the first three in line received gift cards of S/. 700, S/.500 and S/.300 respectively; the next 299 in line received S/.150 each, and the last 998 in line, S/.70.

David Gandy and Jodie Kidd lead Jaguar’s Mille Miglia line-up; Bentley fields 1930 Blower

Top The nine Jaguars taking place in this year’s Mille Miglia. Above Almost Bondian: the 1930 Bentley 4½-litre with a Vanden Plas Open Sports four-seat body and a supercharger by Amherst Villiers competing in the 2015 Mille Miglia.

British car makers are taking this year’s Mille Miglia seriously. Jaguar is taking part with a large heritage line-up, and has enlisted, once again, the help of model and motorhead David Gandy, who competes in an XK120 as he did two years ago along with Jodie Kidd, who must equal Gandy both in the modelling and motorhead stakes. Bentley will field an original 1930 4½-litre Blower, in an attempt to complete what it could not do back then: complete the race.
   Jaguar’s fleet consists of nine, including three C-types, three D-types, an XK120, an XK140, and, the most unusual of this group, a Mark VII—although one had won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1956. One of the C-types is NDU 289, which competed in the original Mille Miglia in 1953, driven that time by Mario Tadini and Franco Cortese. Jaguar engineer Mike Cross drives the car in the 2015 event.
   Other C-types are PUG 676, which was raced by Ian Appleyard, Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons’s son-in-law, this time driven by RAC motoring committee chairman Ben Cussons; and KSF 182, formerly raced by Jimmy Stewart and Jackie Stewart between 1953 and 1955, and owned now by Adam Lindemann, driven this time by five-time Le Mans winner, Derek Bell. The D-types are the ex-Ralph Lauren NCV 260, which had competed in the original Mille Miglias, driven by current owner Simon Kidston; RSF 303, the Ecurie Ecosse car that was second in Le Mans in 1957 and competed in the Mille Miglia in 1957 and 1958, driven by Jaguar design director Ian Callum and enthusiast Clive Beecham; 393 RW, the Reims winner for 1956 and the sixth-place-getter at Le Mans that year, setting the lap record, will be driven by Saturday Kitchen’s James Martin.
   One XK120, nicknamed Betsey, will be driven by Jodie Kidd and David Gandy, as noted: she had driven the car in the 2014 trial. The XK140, TAC 743, was once raced by David Hobbs; it will be driven by Elliot Gleave, a.k.a. Example, and his father Michael. The Mark VII will be driven by Charley Boorman.
   Bentley, meanwhile, will field a 1930 British racing green 4½-litre Blower with a Vanden Plas Open Sports four-seat body and a supercharger by Amherst Villiers—not unlike the one driven by James Bond. The Bentley Boys, the Hon Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin and Bentley chairman Woolf Barnato (right, at Le Mans in 1929), were the first British drivers to compete in the Mille Miglia, using the No. 2 Birkin Blower, a 4½-litre supercharged model. However, they were unable to complete the race.
   Bentley is aiming to do what it could not 85 years ago, using an equivalent model and seeing if its director of royal and VIP relations, Richard Charlesworth can complete the race in the 2015 event. It is the Blower’s fifth entry.
   Between May 14 and 17, 2015, racers will depart from Brescia and drive 1,000 miles, including through Roma, and return to Brescia.

There’s always been an interest in the energy of crystals, and Karma Feeling’s bracelets use natural crystals, each embodying what the company believes to be healing energies. At the very least, you can choose something to fit your own emotions—Karma Feeling’s website guides you through it. Its owner, Gaynor Osborne-Lawn, explains: ‘The gemstones are used to create a unique look and to create energies that benefit the wearer. The healing properties of our crystals have been tried and tested and we encourage our customers to give themselves and others the powerful gift of Karma Feeling. It’s not only about how stylish our bracelets look but how incredible they make you feel.’ They are available at karmafeeling.co.uk with prices beginning at £35; the Dreaming of Ibiza bracelet, available at this price, is pictured.
Lucire is the United Nations Environment Programme's first fashion industry partner   Rose & Willard has shown a new collection using fish skin from a sustainable producer in Iceland. The designs are machine-washable and environmentally friendly, and has anti-tear and anti-scratch properties, according to the company. Rose & Willard has attacted the likes of Michelle Dockery and Charlotte Riley, as well as two Bond girls, Naomie Harris and Gemma Arterton.
   Finally, online guide The Fifty Best has awarded New Zealand’s Black Robin Rare Gin (left) a Double Gold medal in its Best Gin Awards for 2015. After blind-tasting 57 gins from around the world, Black Robin gained a Double Gold, which meant it received top points across the board. Black Robin notes that it was inspired by the endangered black robin, and a percentage of profits goes to the Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society of New Zealand. It is described as a spicy, citrus gin, with a soft floral note and a dry finish.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet has revealed more about Salute, its commemoration of World War I, that premières in Wellington on May 22, with a nationwide tour after its stint there. As revealed in Lucire earlier this month, two of the specially commissioned pieces having their world première in Wellington will also be seen abroad, with the Royal Ballet hosting the RNZB in November 2015 at the Royal Opera House. Leeds, Canterbury and Roma are on the list of stops for the tour, Francesco Ventriglia, the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s artistic director revealed today.
   The two premières, both commissions by the RNZB, are from choreographers Neil Ieremia and Andrew Simmons, set to scores by Dwayne Bloomfield and Gareth Farr, respectively. The world-class New Zealand Army Band will also collaborate on Salute, touring to each of the seven centres on the national tour.
   Ieremia’s Passchendaele, with the Bloomfield score, will also feature works by Auckland artist Geoff Tune, inspired by his artist grandfather’s World War I diaries and recent visits to Gallipoli and Passchendaele.
   Ieremia said in a release, ‘The grotesque and brutal nature of war robs humans of humanity—my intention is to do what little I can to remind us of our own. From the haunting journey through the music, to the refined expression in the dancers’ bodies, encapsulating the very human impact of war—this creative process has already left an indelible mark on my spirit. I feel I have grasped a very, very small insight into something that should never be forgotten.’
   Simmons’ Dear Horizon is a new commission and his fifth for the company, and features a specially commissioned score by Farr, written for the New Zealand Army Band and cellist Rolf Gjelsten of the New Zealand String Quartet.
   Simmons said, ‘It is a very special honour to have been asked to create something for the company as part of this commemorative programme. War cannot really be celebrated and fêted, however the human aspect and participation should always be remembered. I wanted to create a work that reflects upon emotions of those affected by conflict.’
   The set and costumes for Dear Horizon have been designed by Tracy Grant Lord, who also designed the RNZB’s Cinderella (2007) and Romeo and Juliet (2004).
   As detailed last month, the Salute programme also features Johan Kobborg’s Salute and Jiří Kylián’s Soldiers’ Mass.
   Salute has been supported by the Lottery Grants Board, New Zealand Defence Force, Qantas, the Göthe-Institut, the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, national sponsor Vodafone, and Pub Charity.
   Dates for Salute are May 22–4 in Wellington; May 28–30 in Christchurch; June 3 in Dunedin; June 10 in Hamilton; June 13 in Takapuna; June 17–20 in Auckland; and June 24–5 in Napier.
   Further information can be found on the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s website at rnzb.org.nz.

Dakota Johnson, who became a household name after her performance in the movie adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey, is set to star in a promotional film for Estrella Damm, the Spanish beer brand.
   Alcohol marketing is big business—Heineken paid US$45 million for its tie-in to Skyfall, the 2012 James Bond blockbuster, and for Daniel Craig and Bérénice Marlohe to appear in its ad. This time, Johnson, along with Natalia Tena (10,000 Km, Black Mirror: White Christmas, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) and Quim Gutiérrez (Cousinhood, The Last Days), appear in the film, to be directed by Academy Award-winning director Alejandro Amenábar (who won for Mar adentro, or The Sea Inside, starring Javier Bardem; Anglophone audiences may know his earlier work, The Others, starring Nicole Kidman). Amenábar has directed Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke in Regression, which is released this October.
   The advertisement film will première in mid-June. Locations are Ibiza and Barcelona. Johnson plays Rachel, a tourist who arrives at Ibiza and establishes friendships with a group from Barcelona.
   Filming commenced April 29.

Reese Witherspoon launches her own US south-inspired fashion and lifestyle venture, Draper James

Pin It

Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon is behind a new southern US-inspired retail brand, Draper James, appealing to those who would like their fashion, accessories and home décor with a touch of Dixie.
   Witherspoon has named the brand after her grandparents, Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon, who are said to be her greatest influences.
   Witherspoon, who grew up in Nashville, Tenn., recently moved back there, and says the brand pays tribute to her own past. It’s not retro-focused, either: Witherspoon is intent that Draper James reflects what the US south is today.
   Fashion items are feminine, bright and playful, and include dresses and separates; accessories include jewellery and handbags, and home items include stationery, manchester and cocktail napkins.
   She will work with southern artisans and items will be produced in southern factories, says the company.
   â€˜Draper James was built on the backdrop of Reese’s southern past which is both timely and relevant. Not only is the south having a cultural surge, but it has a rich ecosystem that we tapped into on every level,’ says Draper James CEO, Andrea Hyde.
   The ecommerce site launches first at draperjames.com, with a physical store in Nashville to come. Instagram and Twitter presences are up, and the company is using the #DraperJames hashtag.

Dree Hemingway named Chloé fragrance’s new face

Coty has announced that Dree Hemingway is the new face of its Chloé fragrance, with the campaign breaking in September. She follows in the footsteps of Clémence Poésy, Chloë Sevigny, Anja Rubik and Suvi Koponen.
   American-born Hemingway is a classically trained actor, a graduate of RADA, and starred in 2012’s Starlet. More recently, she appeared in While We’re Young and Listen Up Philip, and other credits include Nous York and Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You. She has modelled, beginning in 2009 for Givenchy, and most recently walked for Chloé in March 2015 in Paris.
   She was chosen for her ‘modernity, natural femininity, free-spiritedness and independence,’ says Coty.
   Hemingway said in a release, ‘I am very honoured to be the new face of Chloé. It is a brand that has been part of my life for a long time; it brings up a lot of memories for me. I am looking forward to continuing my story with Chloé into the world of fragrance.’
   â€˜She completely embodies the Chloé girl’s spirit and attitude,’ says Clare Waight Keller, Chloé’s creative director. ‘Her radiant beauty and personality express everything I wanted to convey with the fragrance. It is her incredible ability to be elegant, nonchalant and spontaneous all at once that is both modern and charming”, notes Clare Waight Keller, Chloé’s creative director.
   She has a modest Instagram following of around 72,000 at the time of writing, with just over 30,000 on Twitter.
   Hemingway previously appeared in campaigns for Gianfranco Ferré and Salvatore Ferragamo.
   She is the daughter of actress Mariel Hemingway and Stephen Crisman.
