You would be forgiven thinking there was a sense of déjà vu at day eight of the Cannes Film Festival, with Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell again. Adapted from the novel by Thomas P. Cullinan, a 1971 adaptation had starred Clint Eastwood, and is considered one of the actor’s best works.
   Coppola’s version has had generally positive reviews at Cannes (The Independent was a detractor) but mixed ones in earlier previews.
   Once again, it was red carpet-watching that earned more nods, as well as the L’Oréal Paris Cinema Club party, which commemorates the French cosmetics’ brand’s 20th anniversary at the Festival de Cannes.
   Swedish model Elsa Hosk wore Alberta Ferretti with jewellery by de Grisogono; and Hailey Baldwin wore Ralph & Russo with de Grisogono jewellery. Both ladies showed again that this year’s Cannes Film Festival is about how high the thigh split can go. Kidman chose Michael Kors, while Elle Fanning opted for Rodarte; Jasmine Tookes chose Georges Chakra.
   L’Oréalistas Emily Canham, Irina Shayk, Lara Stone, Maria Borges, Paola Turani, Doutzen Krœs, Ophelie Duvillard, Neelam Gill, Regina Todorenko, Stefanie Giesinger and Lena Meyer-Landrut represented the brand on one of its biggest days at Cannes.
   At the L’Oréal Paris do, Doutzen Krœs, Eva Longoria, Maria Borges, Cindy Bruna, Irina Shayk, Neelam Gill, Alexina Graham, Bianca Balti and Lara Stone all appeared in Balmain, as the two companies celebrated an upcoming Balmain Paris × L’Oréal Paris lipstick collection. Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing, was in attendance at both the première and the evening party.

Deepika Padukone kept the glamour stakes high on the second day of the Cannes Film Festival, wearing a Brandon Maxwell gown accessorized with de Grisogono high jewellery earrings in white gold set in white diamonds and a high jewellery bracelet in white gold with white diamonds and emeralds, and Chloë Gosselin heels. But it was 16-year-old Thylane Blondeau, with her 1·2 million Instagram following, who caught plenty of social media attention, wearing Dior with jewellery by Messika.
   Blondeau, as a L’Oréal Paris ambassador, had its global make-up director Val Garland create a look that used the company’s Brow Artist Genius Kit, Smoky Eyes in Marron Glace, Infallible Paint eye-shadow in Breathtaking Brown, Glam Bronze La Terra, Infallible Nudist lip paint, and Volume Million Lashes.
   Emily Ratajkowski got into the Russian mood with a gown by Peter Dundas, again with de Grisogono jewellery, namely the Gocce earrings in white gold set with white diamonds and onyx, and the Allegra ring in white gold and ceramic set with black diamonds. Adriana Lima wore a strapless Naeem Khan gown with a diamond choker; while Lily Donaldson looked elegant and chic in a pink tulle Dior number. This year, how high could the thigh-high splits go? Petra Němcová’s white dress showed glimpses of her white underwear, rivalling Bella Hadid’s look on day one.
   Unilever partied on the Croisette as well last night, with Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott collaborating with the multinational’s Magnum ice-cream, unveiling a Magnum × Moschino bag capsule collection in seven colours. Guest of honour was Cara Delevingne, who stars in Scott’s film for Magnum, with the theme Unleash Your Wild Side. At the celebrations, Cara Delevingne wore an edgy asymmetric black Moschino gown, with a de Grisogono Allegra necklace in white gold and black leather, and Allegra ring in white gold and black ceramic, both set with white diamonds; and a high jewellery ring in white gold and an India ring, both set with white diamonds and onyx.
   Scott said, ‘I’m excited to finally be able to share the Magnum × Moschino bag capsule collection today here in Cannes that we’ve worked so hard on. It’s been such a fun project! The bags are designed to communicate the fun and fearless attitude that both Moschino and Magnum are all about!’
   Delevingne added, ‘I’m a strong believer in being who you want to be, no matter how wild or different that may be viewed by others, so I hope that we inspire others to do the same and embrace a fearless attitude.’

As befitting any awards ceremony of note, Celebrity Connected gets the enthusiasm and adrenaline started early with their famed luxury gifting lounge. It could not have found a more appropriate location than the ultramodern and plush W Hotel Hollywood for the lively star-studded event.
   While youth reigned supreme (it is MTV, after all), there were as many notable established as well as up-and-comers parading the red carpet. Al McLean of the Backstreet Boys, singer Alli Simpson, actor–comedian JB Smoove, actor Lil Rel Howery (2017 winner), Michelle Visage (2017 winner), Randy Jackson, Rashad Jennings, actor Sam Huntington, Christian Navarro, Princess Love and others were in on the fun.

Mister-e-Liquid is all things e-cigarette and nicotine alternative in a cornucopia of flavours. There are also batteries, chargers, cases and complete vaping kits.
   Cyndie Wade offered custom painted glassware and gifts, ensuring tastemakers would never be at a loss for customizable ideas with a dash of whimsy. Just email a clear photo and some particulars and Wade sends you custom wine glasses, ornaments, treat jars for pets and cookie jars for humans, paintings on canvas and more.

News in brief: bags from Maison 203 and Deadly Ponies; Bird and Knoll shows resort collection


NEWS  by Lucire staff/May 3, 2017/23.29

Maison 203’s new clutches for spring–summer 2017 have a funky, modernist æsthetic with a dash of futurism to them. Designed by Odo Fioravanti, the clutches take inspiration from architecture, and have up-to-the-minute metallic shades for summer, as well as gold and bronze.
   The new clutches, dubbed Bern, Armure and Ivy, are available on the Maison 203 website, or at its store in Venezia (Via Cartizze 5, 31049 Valdobbiadene (TV)). A new store will open in Zaragoza on May 20.
   Deadly PoniesPearlies collection, launching May 5, takes a very different inspiration: that of Henry Croft, a road sweeper who donned a “pearly suit”, clothing decorated with mother of pearl buttons, to charity events. The Pearly Kings and Queens, a charity which arose from Croft’s efforts, still exist today, helping communities in London.
   There are totes and clutches in the pearly tradition, but the highlight is on the wool felt Lucky Charm, an NZ$89·95 piece that can be used as an accessory to one of its bags or as a key holder. All proceeds from Lucky Charm sales will go to Lifewise, an Auckland-based community social development agency dedicated to ending youth homelessness.
   Deadly Ponies’ creative director Liam Bowden said, ‘In New Zealand, our homelessness problem is increasing at an alarming rate. Everyone deserves to have a place they can call home, and this project gives us an opportunity to pitch in and help to house New Zealanders in need.’
   Lifewise’s Victoria Hearn said, ‘Access to housing is a basic human right. Without a safe place to live, it is difficult for young people to access education, gain employment and be independent. I love that Deadly Ponies are acknowledging the very real issue of homelessness in New Zealand and that they’re using their new Pearlies collection to do their bit to help improve outcomes for vulnerable Kiwi youth.’
   Finally, Bird and Knoll has released its Days Like These resort collection for spring–summer 2017, inspired by travels through México, described by the company as one ‘of luxe simplicity with a bohemian edge—perfect for “days like these”.’ There’s no mention of the Matt Monro song ‘On Days Like These’, but the designs convey that same sense of la dolce vita, even if the inspiration is Mexican and not Italian.



Allbirds extends range with Wool Lounger shoes


NEWS  by Lucire staff/April 26, 2017/13.29


Allbirds claims its latest Wool Lounger shoe has ‘soft wool, sleek lines, unstoppable comfort’.
   Already known for the comfort of its existing Wool Runner shoe, the US-based, New Zealand-heritage brand introduced a second style earlier this month.
   Environmentally friendly, the new shoes are breathable and made from the same super-fine New Zealand merino wool, which the company claims makes them ideal to be worn year-round, and even sockless.
   Four shades are available at launch: lemon, navy, pine and slate. Men’s and women’s styles are offered.



News in brief: Kristen Stewart behind the scenes for Chanel; H&M announces Global Change Award winners


NEWS  by Lucire staff/April 9, 2017/23.52



Chanel

Chanel revealed last week the first of four films for its Gabrielle bag. The photographs had already been shot by Karl Lagerfeld, featuring Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, Caroline de Maigret and Pharrell Williams, each with the ‘aura’ of Gabrielle Chanel in the film.
   The first film, starring Stewart and directed by Daniel Askill, appeared on April 3 on Chanel websites and social networks, while the making-of (as the French call it) is below on Lucire’s Dailymotion channel.
   Danish jewellery brand Pandora has announced that it will enter into a second year’s partnership with Dress for Success, committing to a US$500,000 donation this year, and donating Pandora jewellery to Dress for Success affiliates throughout North America. It will also sponsor Dress for Success events through the year.
   Dress for Success, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, is a not-for-profit that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing professional attire, support, and developmental tools.
   Readers may remember our story in March about the finalists of the H&M Foundation Global Change Award this year. The online vote, held from March 27 to April 2, saw the €1,000,000 split as follows:

• €300,000 for Grape Leather (team lead: Rossella Longobardo, Italy);
• €250,000 for Solar Textiles (team lead: Miguel A. Modestino, USA and Switzerland);
• €150,000 for Content Thread (team lead: Natasha Franck, US and UK);
• €150,000 for Denim-dyed Denim (team lead: Xungai Wang, Australia); and
• €150,000 for Manure Couture (team lead: Jalila Essaidi, the Netherlands).

A ceremony was held at the Stockholm town hall on April 5.
   ‘We are deeply glad that such a prestigious foundation recognized the value of our innovation and strongly believed in it. Our first objectives will consist in switching from a pilot to an industrial-scale production our fabric and starting a green, cruelty-free revolution within the leather industry, finally solving its related issues and overexploitations,’ said Rossella Longobardo from the team behind wine leather (‘Grape Leather’).

Spring cleaning: the Secret Room’s MTV Movie Awards’ party gets us ready for summer


NEWS  by Elyse Glickman//20.13

It’s no secret that during the summer months, great skin and healthy hair make up the foundation for one’s warm weather look. The Secret Room once again took over the SLS Hotel’s Garden Terrace to focus their attention a variety of shampoos, skin care essentials, beauty services, and fashion accessories to get the ball rolling on summer 2017.
   Parfaire, a posh med-spa in Pasadena, was back for some summertime skin consultations while two hair care lines, Beaver Professional Hair Care and Luseta (www.lusetabeauty.com), filled out the centre of the Garden Terrace with several products infused with exotic essential oils.
   Some people, sponsors included, note that clean body, mind and soul come from within. Paola Petrella, chef and founder of Two Peas Meal Delivery and Catering (located in LA suburb Van Nuys), introduced her take on clean eating without compromise, while the owner of Nava Natural, a Beverly Hills-based beauty and supplements purveyor, did the same with her line of beauty products and herbal remedies.
   With Oscar season long over, and hippie-chic and trend-setting Coachella music festival around the corner, it was only fitting that the jewellery had an earthy, accessible quality. Maine-based JA Designs made that statement with its fibre necklaces while silk bracelets adorned with silver, copper and natural beads from Caravana Jewelry of Sedona, Arizona were crowd-pleasers.
   Jewels by Duranni showcased small, understated gold-filled and sterling designs.
   As MTV still focuses on the tastes, trends, and interests of the under-18 set, it was nice to see chic (but age-appropriate) shoes and clothing for girls from Jessica Simpson’s line, as well as Townley Girl, which teams with Disney, Dreamworks and other studios to create cosmetics and hair goods for girls just growing into a beauty routine and finding their personal style.
   All told, there were a few neat things for guys in attendance, from Unisex sweats from the re-launched BUM Equipment clothing line to gear from Santa Cruz Skateboards and a company called Whimzey, which featured outdoorsy slogans and a few confidence builders.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor

Wellington’s eclectic, multicultural streetwear label Paris Club launches


NEWS  by Lucire staff/March 27, 2017/22.54


Having worked with design teams in London, Hong Kong and Australia, creative director Di returned to Wellington, New Zealand to launch her own streetwear clothing label.
   Paris Club, inspired by youthful living, energy, eclectic fun, and trends in 2017 streetwear, features over 250 styles of printed Ts, hoodies, sweaters and embroidered caps, all at an affordable price.
   Paris Club adds a new twist and an extra dash of energy to existing streetwear styles and brands by taking graphics, typography, and the latest trends and making them more boisterous and energetic, with irony, parody and joyful sarcasm, while being comfortable and functional.
   The I Feel Like Pizza long sleeve T is inspired by Yeezy’s collection but leans towards the love of food. Lazy, Lola Bunny, and the Icecream cap are honest reflections of the millennial’s heart, and throwbacks of vintage childhood cartoons. Minimalist black-and-white designs, featuring the Paris Club slogan, dominate; the label reports that girls seem to have taken the biggest liking on menswear in the collection, and boys on the pinks within the range.
   Inspired by Italian, French and Tokyo street styles, the brand seeks to create diversity and integrate a variety of cultures and their streetwear trends to create an eclectic, multi-cultural, style-lovers’ club.
   Ts retail at NZ$32·99, caps NZ$29, and hoodies from NZ$49, available at www.parisclub.co, with free shipping on domestic orders over NZ$100 and international shipping from NZ$6.
