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.

Spanish luxury becomes more visible: Tous, Carrera y Carrera get attention

Above Tous’s autumn‚Äďwinter 2014‚Äď15 campaign and Carrera y Carrera’s Romance en el Loto collection emerge.

The Spanish labels are getting far more active, giving their better known French and Italian rivals a run for their money.
   While Zara’s been flying the Spanish flag for years in the budget sector, the much posher Tous has been promoting its wares Down Under, lately with a new store in Auckland in the Tower Building at 8 Customs Street West, next to the Customs Street House. The brand says it will open in Wellington and Christchurch, and give New Zealanders a taste of its luxury jewellery.
   By opening near Prada, Dior and Swarovski in the Tower Building, Tous believes the area will become a magnet for luxury brands for Auckland shoppers.
   Carrera y Carrera of Madrid, meanwhile, has shown its new Romance en el Loto (romance in the lotus) collection, which it calls a celebration of love.
   The new jewellery collection, with a delicate frog at its core, tells the story of founder Manuel Carrera, who, 50 years ago, spotted Marina‚ÄĒand, unbeknownst to him, he had caught her eye, too. It took some time before he mustered up the courage to introduce himself, and they have been inseparable since. The frog represents a ‘fun way’ of remembering that first meeting and the looks they gave one another. The lotus leaves are a tribute to Marina Carrera, symbolizing elegance, beauty and grace.
   The collection features rubies, diamonds and emeralds, in white and yellow gold.

District notes that Kendall Jenner, the new face of Estée Lauder, wears a top from its range. The blush pink top retails for US$108. Blake Lively had also recently chosen District for a photo shoot for her new website, Preserve.


   Charlie’s wants New Zealand customers to try their Straight Up cola, and decide whether it should become a permanent part of its range. Kiwis are invited to post their feedback with a thumbs-up or thumbs-down selfie, or simply write a few words, at Charlie’s Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag #straightupcola.
   Finally, Carrera y Carrera, the Spanish jewellery brand, has launched new visuals with model Alejandra Alonso as its new face. The campaign has been conceived by MAFIA, and features items from Carrera y Carrera’s new Seda Imperial range, as well as from C√≠rculos de Fuego, Bamb√ļ and Ruedo. It will break in publications internationally this month.

Kipling’s Always On, as are our spring‚Äďsummer 2015 picks from Paris and New York

When we think about the agile monkey symbol, Kipling automatically comes to mind. For fashionistas, it is a brand, but for the literary critics, the name is associated with the world-renowned British author Rudyard Kipling. Neither fashionista nor literary critic is wrong, considering more than two decades ago three designers in Belgium found their inspiration from the author’s The Jungle Book.
   The brand is known for their stylish bags, luggage and travel accessories. Post-fashion week, Kipling took over the remarkable Grand Central Terminal in New York to introduce their Always On collection. The different pieces on display were trendy and practical; music from Harley Viera Newton echoed throughout the site. Have a glance at their styles here:




   On the main part of the site, you’ll find Lucire‚Äôs picks for spring‚Äďsummer 2015 from both the Paris and New York catwalks, and US west coast editor Elyse Glickman looks at Israeli footwear brand Naot, and a recent venture they did with Bellagio Shoes to help the residents of Beit T‚ÄôShuvah, a treatment centre that aims to get people back on their feet (pun intended).‚ÄĒLola Cristall, Paris Editor

The Peninsula Beverly Hills is known for its sophistication, adding a European flair in a Californian setting. It was a perfect location for Organic Spa Magazine to host the launch of their 2014 Los Angeles Experience Wellness Media and Eco-Celebrity Event. Celebrities included John Salley, Katie Chonacas, Jennifer Taylor and their stunning October cover girl Nancy O’Dell. With natural holistic services offered in cabanas by the poolside on the rooftop, overlooking marvellous views, the event was based around the beauty and delicacy of naturally infused products.
   Eileen Fischer’s stylish, restrained fashion appeared alongside Nubian Heritage, founded by Richelieu Dennis and Nyema Tubman, who presented a slew of high-end natural skin care products. Others tapping in to their organic creativity included Ikove, Ayushi, Jurlique, the Organic Face, Susie Frazer, Two Bunch Palms, Organics Brasil, Plantlife, Shankara, Aura Cacia, Tsuiya, Ga√ęlle Organic, Malebranche, Nordic Naturals, Green Spa Network, Vana Retreats, Immunocologie, Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, Natracare, Kari Gran, Riviera Maya, Dahliana Skincare, Fifth Dimension Clothing, Golden Door and Shea Moisture. The brands had one special factor in common: they brought the mind, body and soul together in the midst of natural products.

   Travelling cross-country, we arrive in New York where Alyson Dutch hosted her Valentine‚Äôs Day Gift Guide Event. The Artisan Group was in attendance to present everything from jewellery pieces to skin care products. Brainy Pac presented their conveniently designed hats, where separate compartments permit the wearer to store away important items, including their gadgets, while staying chic. Signature Soul Socks introduced their comfortable socks, with solid soles that can easily slide into a boot. Lulu DK‚Äôs jewellery-like metallic temporary tattoos, in gold or silver, illuminate. Grande Lash-MD is perfect for the woman interested in elongating her eyelashes, with a product made out of exclusively natural ingredients. Dollipop Cosmetics featured their radiant eye shadows consisting of a range of various shades from lusterless matte to shimmering gloss.
   In Paris, Deux A‚Äôs head designer and founder, Anna-Liza, presented her spring 2015 collection during an intimate gathering in Paris. The collection entitled Naga Botanicus added her personal take on floral creativity, with vibrant, vivid shades and slightly psychedelic features. Casual, basic knee-high skirts to hip-hugging dresses are accompanied by large floral headdresses.‚ÄĒLola Cristall, Paris Editor

Baz Luhrmann explains Gis√®le B√ľndchen’s Chanel No. 5 casting as more images released

Lucire staff/9.58

Hugh Stewart

Chanel has teased with more imagery for its upcoming No. 5 campaign with Gis√®le B√ľndchen, written and directed by The Great Gatsby (2013) director Baz Luhrmann, with production design by Academy Award winner Catherine Martin.
   The new images show the supermodel in two more outfits in addition to her surfing one shown yesterday.
   In one, again shot by Hugh Stewart, B√ľndchen is wearing a silver lam√© fringed organza dress from the Chanel haute couture spring‚Äďsummer 2014 collection, with mauve suede sneakers, Plume de Chanel earrings in 18 ct white gold and diamonds, and a Plume de Chanel ring in 18 ct white gold and diamonds. Make-up uses a similar palette, with le Blanc de Chanel, Perfection Lumi√®re Velvet and Les Beiges foundation; Cr√®me de Chanel in R√©v√©lation for the blush; les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in Tiss√© Rivoli; Ecriture de Chanel eyeliner in black; Stylo Yeux Waterproof pencil in Noir Intense and the Kh√īl pencil in Clair; Rouge Allure lipstick in Ind√©cise; le Crayon L√®vres in Mordor√© Nude to define the lips; le Vernis for the nails, in Ballerina.
   B√ľndchen’s second outfit sees her wear a black double silk‚Äďcr√™pe dress with silver embroidery from the cruise 2014‚Äď15 collection, with black satin sandals from the spring‚Äďsummer 2014 collection. She wears a Chanel necklace in 18 ct white gold and diamonds, and earrings in 18 ct white gold and diamonds.
   B√ľndchen’s choice, according to Luhrmann in the latest behind-the-scenes video, can be summed up with her multi-faceted nature. ‘She can be on the beach one moment and incredibly athletic. She has children. She has a very, very significant relationship. And yet, she has a career where she can create aspirational, sensual, incredibly glamorous imagery, and somehow, what’s most important to her, ‚Ķ is love, to really be fulfilled. And I think that’s what we try to convey in this little film.’
   He says that she has ‘a new world sensibility. I think that’s both fresh but very true to Coco Chanel. Coco brought the new era to the old world. She was the one who smashed the convention. She was the one who just hung out and was friends with the avant-garde. She was 100 per cent behind the new, 100 per cent behind possibility, and 100 per cent, in her DNA, a self-empowered woman. Gis√®le felt honoured, I felt, to be identified as the No. 5 woman. She has continued to evolve as a woman.’
   B√ľndchen follows in the footsteps of Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou, and even Brad Pitt. Luhrmann, meanwhile joins Ridley Scott, Luc Besson, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet as Chanel No. 5 directors.
   Patrick Demarchelier shot the final stills of the campaign.
   Says Chanel, ‘In this new chapter, the story of No. 5 is told in a way that goes beyond the fragrance itself. Ten years ago, No. 5 was the fragrance of a woman who decided to break free from it all and then return to reality, renouncing her desire. Today, through Luhrmann‚Äôs eyes, we see the No. 5 woman deciding to listen to her heart. She is a woman who knows exactly who she is, and is free to make her own choices and listen to her desires. The film tells the story of the modern woman who struggles to make time for everything‚ÄĒherself, family, career, and love.’
   The accompanying music is Lo-Fang‚Äôs cover of ‘You‚Äôre the One That I Want’. The film itself, to be released on October 15, has no words or dialogue.
