District notes that Kendall Jenner, the new face of EstĂŠe 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 CĂ­rculos de Fuego, BambĂş and Ruedo. It will break in publications internationally this month.

Kipling’s Always On, as are our spring–summer 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’s picks for spring–summer 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’Shuvah, a treatment centre that aims to get people back on their feet (pun intended).—Lola 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, GaĂŤlle 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’s 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’s 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’s 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.—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor

Jaeger-LeCoultre supported the New York première of Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher at the 52nd New York Film Festival on October 10.
   The film tells the story from the viewpoint of Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, and his relationship with sponsor John du Pont and brother Dave Schultz, also an Olympic wrestler. Foxcatcher was the name of du Pont’s farm.
   It has already won Miller the best director prize at the Festival de Cannes earlier this year.
   Channing Tatum plays Mark Schultz, Mark Ruffalo plays Dave Schultz, and Sienna Miller plays Dave’s wife, Nancy. Steve Carell plays du Pont. Vanessa Redgrave plays Jean du Pont.
   Playing host to the cast at a pre-screening cocktail reception, director Miller, producers Megan Ellison and John Kilik, and Sony Pictures’ Michael Barker and Tom Bernard, was Jaeger-LeCoultre president Philippe Bonay.
   Bonay, Carell and Ruffalo each donned a Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control watch.

Baz Luhrmann explains Gisèle BĂźndchen’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 Gisèle Bßndchen, 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, BĂźndchen is wearing a silver lamĂŠ fringed organza dress from the Chanel haute couture spring–summer 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 Lumière Velvet and Les Beiges foundation; Crème de Chanel in RĂŠvĂŠlation for the blush; les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in TissĂŠ Rivoli; Ecriture de Chanel eyeliner in black; Stylo Yeux Waterproof pencil in Noir Intense and the KhĂ´l pencil in Clair; Rouge Allure lipstick in IndĂŠcise; le Crayon Lèvres in MordorĂŠ Nude to define the lips; le Vernis for the nails, in Ballerina.
   BĂźndchen’s second outfit sees her wear a black double silk–crĂŞpe dress with silver embroidery from the cruise 2014–15 collection, with black satin sandals from the spring–summer 2014 collection. She wears a Chanel necklace in 18 ct white gold and diamonds, and earrings in 18 ct white gold and diamonds.
   BĂźndchen’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, … 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. Gisèle felt honoured, I felt, to be identified as the No. 5 woman. She has continued to evolve as a woman.’
   BĂźndchen 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’s 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—herself, family, career, and love.’
   The accompanying music is Lo-Fang’s cover of ‘You’re the One That I Want’. The film itself, to be released on October 15, has no words or dialogue.

Kendall Jenner is following the mantra that if you’ve got it, flaunt it. The model stepped out in New York in a showcasing her incredibly toned body in a maroon coloured crop-top, maxi-skirt and CĂŠline handbag, as she headed to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time fund-raiser.
   Jenner has walked for Chanel, Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana recently, boosting her catwalk cred.
   Meanwhile, Texan-born singer Selena Gomez was happy to channel the Kim Kardashian look at the première for Rudderless in Los Angeles, with a low-cut red silk dress by Christian Dior, drop earrings and black heels. The film, directed by William H. Macy, is released in the autumn.
   Kristen Stewart was snapped at the Apple store in New York’s Soho. The beauty wasn’t in store for the latest iPhone but to promote her upcoming film Camp X-Ray. Stewart, 24, in a leather dungaree-style dress, took questions from the audience. The actress could be a contender for an Oscar for her role in Still Alice, which Sony Pictures Classics is campaigning for.
   Finally, the Spanish men’s magazine Icon held its first awards’ ceremony at the Italian consulate in Madrid, where model and Valentino muse Nieves Álvarez (top) got her share of admirers in her bow tie and double-breasted dinner suit, and Carrera y Carrera JardĂ­n de Rosas earrings in white gold and diamonds.

IWC Schaffhausen launches Timeless Portofino exhibition in Hong Kong

IWC Schaffhausen hosted a gala dinner on Monday at the Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong with its brand ambassadors Cate Blanchett, Zhou Xun and Karolína Kurková, and photographer Peter Lindbergh present. IWC CEO Georges Kern played host, with Goris Verburg, IWC marketing and communication director, and Benoît de Clerck, IWC managing director, Asia–Pacific.
   Earlier they had opened the Timeless Portofino exhibition, which marked the launch of IWC Schaffhausen’s Portofino mid-size watch range. The three ambassadors played a role in the exhibition, shot by Lindbergh, as did Emily Blunt, Christoph Waltz, Ewan McGregor, and Adriana Lima.
   The event coincided with the first day of the Watches and Wonders exhibition in the Chinese city, which is currently beset by pro-democracy protests demanding that Beijing fulfil its promise of granting universal suffrage for the 2017 election of the chief executive.
   Beijing, for its part, suggests that the US State Department is interfering in the city’s affairs.
   There was little sign of the concerns at the event as the 250 celebrity and VIP guests were entertained at the dinner, including Francis Ng, Anita Yuen, Audrey Ai, Jamie Campbell, Alfred Cheung, Brandon Chau, Leigh Tung, Julien Lepeu, Jeffrey Yau, Cissy Wang, Deborah Hung, and Amanda S. The renowned Shandong-born violinist LĂź Siqing performed at the gala dinner.
   The Timeless Portofino exhibition has already appeared in ZĂźrich and will go on to London, Miami and Dubai.

A busy week for Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

A Lucire exclusive




Paula Sweet

In a whirlwind week, two extraordinary events occurred in northern Italy, both under the stewardship of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.
   On the night of Wednesday, September 10 at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Torino, a travelling exhibition showcasing the finalists to this year’s Prix Pictet launched. This year’s theme, Consumption, introduced by Pictet’s Stephen Barber at a gala reception, themes the world’s most prestigious annual photography prize. You can visit this important show at the Fondazione’s impressive and expansive space, a converted factory, through October 12.
   The following Sunday, September 14, Divine, an installation focusing on highlights from the 20th century costume jewellery collection of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, opened at Ca’D’oro in Venezia. A gathering of local luminaries and international guests witnessed the official launch of the show. Over 400 objects notable for their history and elegance are displayed in the Galleria Georgio Franchetti, remaining on exhibit through January 11, 2015.
   In her exhibition notes, Sandretto Re Rebaudegno says she first developed interest in accessible costume jewellery designs because they represent a cultural heritage that ‘brings us back to hard times and great social change.’ But you will find they are also remarkable for their craftsmanship and inherent beauty.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor
