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–summer 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.
   â€˜Christian 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’m so thrilled that he generously allowed me to offer this risquĂ© print in luscious Italian silk in my Tulip collection, plus a glamorous 1940s style negligĂ©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.

Unbridled creativity at Raffles College of Design’s Perspective graduate show

Lucire staff/13.36

Pin It

The 2014 graduate show from the Raffles College of Design and Commerce, titled Perspective, took place in the big top of the iconic Luna Park in Sydney on December 9.
   The location could not have been more idyllic, and the weather, which has been very stormy of late, held, allowing all guests and designers to make their way to the show.
   It is almost impossible to make comment about all 30 graduates but having an eye for trend, I can say that there was a yearning felt through a sizeable portion of the work presented to embrace all things Mother Nature, in all her textures and colours: escapism, easier living, freedom and expressionism. There were 30 capsule collections consisting of six looks each.
   The show was opened by Queency Yustiawan, inspired by the work of Russian painter Kazimir Malevich. A dramatic black-and-white dress coat was the piĂšce de rĂ©sistance and reminded me of a bicolour paper plane. I was impressed with the tailoring of the piece.

Below Queency Yustiawan.


   Good tailoring has been spotted across much of the collections showed, which speaks volumes about the college they are graduating from. What I thought was a dying skill, cherished by very few nowadays, has hope.
   My total stand-out was the capsule by Ashleigh Kwong, which displayed pared-back elegance, fresh and interesting prints and shapes, and wearability. There was a little white trapeze dress with a blue print that I would happily wear any time.

Below The stand-out for Lucire’s Viviana Pannell was the capsule collection by Ashleigh Kwong.


   In the glamour department, Shannon Gambino was a shining star, and so was Tiana Ha Phuong Thao Van, with her royal blue obsession. Her inspiration reminded me slightly of Toni Maticevski and my favourite piece was a little single-shoulder cocktail dress featuring delicate, layered ruffles. Also notable in this department was Lily Purkiss, who presented a capsule of delicate sheers covering shorter layers: utter purity and elegance. Hailing all the way from Italy, Daniela Monica Da Rui presented a capsule inspired by German expressionism, femmes fatales and film noir. She captured her brief very well as one of the pieces, an elegant black dress appliquĂ©d with sculptural black twigs, made me think of a fairy tale with the iconic Marlene Dietrich playing the lead. Christine Milanja, with her elegant and demurely sexy capsule, also deserves a mention.

   High on wearability were Molly Ya Jung Wu with her pared-down capsule exhibiting very interesting cuts. Rishella Lisha Liang presented a capsule of more wearable menswear and resort-like womenswear featuring appliquĂ©s.
   The best menswear, to my mind, was presented by Noal Yam Gurung. Xtra Senquan Ruan presented an interesting combination of interlocking shapes and draping.

   It was a beautiful show and I expect to see much more from these graduates. I just love to see unbridled creativity not yet contaminated by commercial realities and the utter need to push prices down in today’s world. Good things are worth paying a nice sum for and are treasured forever. Some of what I saw could be produced and placed into stores tomorrow.

Napoleon Perdis is the exclusive make-up provider to the grand final of Miss Universe New Zealand 2014, which will be held at Sky City Theatre on September 18. The show will also be live-streamed at nextmissnz.com as well as Lucire.
   The company has provided prize packs for the finalists (including lip gloss, a complimentary makeover, samples of BBB cream, primer and serum) as well as VIPs, plus grander prizes for the top five place-getters, whom the public and the judges decide on, fifty–fifty. They’ll also be behind the scenes: on Thursday night, viewers will see a make-up look created by Napoleon Perdis’s head office in Sydney.
   The products Napoleon Perdis’s team, along with the Samala Robinson Academy, will use include Auto Pilot pre-foundation skin primer, Peep Show in Madame Beyond mascara, Stroke of Genius Liquid Cashmere foundation, the One concealer and the Camera Finish powder foundation for prep and base; the Camera Finish powder foundation, Matte Bronze fine powder for that beautiful sun-kissed look, Mosaic Flushing powder, Color Disc in Blushing Bride and Pale Rider or Chocoholic eye brow pencil for contour, blush and brows; and the Chocolate Genache Color Disc, Golden Peach loose eye dust, Mosaic Flushing powder, Color Disc in Skinny Dip, China Doll eyeliner, the One concealer in light, Mesmer-Eyes mascara, faux lashes in Zinnia, Mattastic lipstick in Audrey, Witty in Pink lip pencil and Clearly Glam lip lacquer for eyes and lips. All are aimed to give the finalists a glamorous, film-star look—exactly in line with Napoleon Perdis’s own vision of democratizing make-up. The best looks shouldn’t just be available to celebrities, they should be available to women from all around New Zealand.
   Tickets are available from Iticket, and, due to demand, Miss Universe New Zealand has opened up the dress rehearsal on Wednesday, with proceeds going to the Father Ray Foundation, which the finalists visited on their Thai retreat in August.

Bambi Northwood-Blyth named face of Ba&Sh for autumn–winter 2014–15 fashion campaign

Quentin de Briey

Bambi Northwood-Blyth, who was one of Lucire’s news-makers of 2013, has now been named the face of the international press campaign for French label Ba&Sh.
   The autumn–winter 2014–15 collection will feature Northwood-Blyth in a shoot in Barcelona by Belgian photographer Quentin de Briey. The label says that the Australian model was chosen for her ‘glamorous freshness, and her bohemian-chic allure.’
   The designers, Barbara and Sharon, said in a release, ‘We were completely seduced by Bambi, her charisma, energy and boldness.’
   The collection contrasts between ‘intensity and lightness, nobility and bestality,’ says Ba&Sh, and is meant to convey pluralism.
   The campaign’s idea centres around femininity, ‘a woman wildly in love, deliberately free and outgoing, with multiple facets,’ or what it dubs ‘ultra-femininity’.
   The campaign breaks in France and internationally from August 2014, on displays, in print and web media. Ba&Sh’s web site can be found at www.ba-sh.com.

For Every Minute débuts mid-winter merino line; Queenstown prepares for Clicquot in the Snow

Jack Yan

For Every Minute held its mid-winter VIP evening at Coco Wellington last night, with co-founder Kenzy Cheeseman holding court, and an even more lavish spread of macarons, guimauves and madeleines from French Cancan, teas from Harney & Sons, wine from Nautilus and water from Waiwera put on for guests. Ruth Armishaw performed live jazz numbers, and neighbouring Woodstock florist provided the flowers, giving the event a classier ambiance.
   As with For Every Minute’s previous event, models, and Cheeseman and Armishaw, were dressed in the company’s silk, loungewear, pyjamas and sleepwear, but there were more giveaways, including beauty treatment vouchers and silk eye masks.
   Cheeseman used the event to dĂ©but For Every Minute’s mid-winter merino line, which to our eyes looked even more comfortable than the silk designs.
   In other antipodean news, Best Western has announced that Harley–Davidson riders will have more travel perks across its 67 participating Australia and New Zealand properties.
   HOG members who sign up to Best Western Rewards will be automatically upgraded to Platinum status, with 10 per cent bonus points on each stay, a welcome gift on arrival, complimentary room upgrades, early check-in and late
check-out when available, as well as extra 10 per cent off their accommodation.
   Best Western International and Harley–Davidson extended their global partnership for three years in 2013.
   Finally, Veuve Clicquot will hold its Clicquot in the Snow celebration from July 30 to August 3 in Queenstown, New Zealand.
   The event, which has been held in Tignes and Aspen, sees Queenstown host everything from the Clicquot brunches at Pier 19, Steamers’ Wharf, from July 30 to 31, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (NZ$35), with a special session with guest DJ Vincent Hanna on August 1, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; the Clicquot Snow Bar at the Coronet Peak main deck (10 a.m.–4 p.m.), where guests can get a bespoke menu matched with a flute of Veuve Clicquot and a complimentary pair of Clicquot touch-screen gloves; the Clicquot dĂ©gustation dinner on August 1 at the Wakatipu Grill at the Hilton (NZ$150; call 64 3 450-9400 to book); an evening with Kathryn Wilson and Veuve Clicquot, where the designer will showcase her spring–summer 2014–15 shoe collection at the Heliworks Hangar on August 2 (NZ$50, see www.kathrynwilson.com for tickets); the after-party at the Bunker on July 31 from 9 p.m.; and the late-night sessions at Barmuda from on August 1 from 9 p.m.

Lucire’s Instagram round-up, June 6: Natalia Vodianova nude to Lupita Nyong’o’s nails

Lucire staff/23.36

Model Natalia Vodianova made headlines with her Instagram this week, showing off a nude image with her breastfeeding son, photographed by Paolo Roversi.
   The photograph was dedicated to her husband, Antoine Arnault, for his birthday. It was later revealed by Vodianova on her Instagram that the photographer was Roversi, who ‘was one of the first to photograph me all the way back in 2001’, she wrote.
   Maxim was born on May 2—Vodianova Instagrammed his first photo at the time, noting he weighed in at 4·2 kg (9 lb 4 oz).
   Model of the moment Barbara Palvin had a more casual photo spending time with her sister, Anita, posted cycling, while the actress we have dubbed ‘woman of the year’, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, showed off her aqua-lacquer nails and matching cellphone cover from Maui, Hawai‘i.
   Natasha Poly was also lounging by the pool in shades, a leather jacket and scarf, shot in Paris, from which she departed on Friday, and actress Jessica Chastain has been spending time in Roma, checking out the Colosseo (and noting its restoration) and, in another photo, posing with a Fiat nuova 500 (the 1957–77 variety).
   Liya Kebede notes that the only jewellery she wore to the CFDA awards this year was a tattoo from Stone Paris for Colette. Ralph & Russo was in an awards’ mood, when it posted a composite image of Angelina Jolie wearing its designs, wishing the actress a happy birthday earlier this week.
   Model Nina Agdal, too, kept things casual, sharing her images with Vogue Australia after a trip to Sydney, and posting one of them on her ’Gram.

At Cannes: Nicole Kidman in Francesco Scognamiglio; and our other highlights

The hijinks of the Festival de Cannes begin today and we’ve already caught actress Nicole Kidman in a Francesco Scognamiglio dress (above) on the Riviera. We’ll have more highlights later today as we begin filing our reports from the world’s most famous film festival.
   In the main part of the Lucire site, don’t forget we’ve been serializing travel editor Stanley Moss’s novel, The Crimson Garter, now up to chapter 16. If you enjoy a good period yarn set in European locales, Crimson is very enjoyable and we will be publishing the final parts shortly. Meanwhile, in the real world, Stanley also goes in search of black truffles in France.
   Emma and Denis Merkas, a real-life Australian couple, believe in massage as a way to bring greater intimacy and trust in relationships. Their new online course, Melt: Massage for Couples, is very accessible, and you can find out more about it in our beauty feature here.
   We have Paris editor Lola Saab’s New York Fashion Week diary, along with her show reports; while publisher Jack Yan talks to Sheryl McPherson of Salisbury Boutique in Dunedin, one of the city’s most cutting-edge fashion retailers.
   Guest correspondent Peter Jobes test-drives the BMW i3, the pioneering electric car from the German brand. And you can order your copy of Lucire issue 32, in print and for tablets, here.
