Erdem is H&M’s next guest designer—director Baz Luhrmann will helm the film campaign


NEWS  by Lucire staff/July 13, 2017/16.04


H&M

H&M’s latest designer collaboration is with Erdem—and if that wasn’t big enough news, the Swedish giant has enlisted the visionary Australian director Baz Luhrmann to create the film to promote the new range.
   The two talents are perfectly suited: Erdem, created by the Canadian-born, UK-based Erdem Moralioglu, focuses on the ideas of history and personal narrative, finding him favour aming celebrities including the Duchess of Cambridge, Jessica Alba, and Kate Bosworth, while Luhrmann’s films tell fantastic stories that embody imagination and startling visuals. The new collection, which débuts on November 2 in selected stores and online at hm.com, promises to have a spectacular kick-off.
   As with his predecessors, Moralioglu will reinterpret his earlier collections for the collaboration and, for the first time, he will create a menswear collection.
   H&M says he will reinterpret his most celebrated prints and textiles for the Erdem × H&M collection.
   â€˜I am so happy to collaborate with H&M, and to explore my work on a whole new scale including a menswear collection which I have never done before. It’s also such a thrill to work with Baz Luhrmann, one of the most important storytellers of our time,’ said Moralioglu.
   â€˜For me, fashion is always about more than just clothing, it is a form of expression—a standalone art form. I am excited to be collaborating with Erdem and H&M to reveal the story of this unique collection,’ said Luhrmann.
   H&M’s creative adviser, Ann-Sofie Johansson, said, ‘From the moment we started talking with Erdem about the collaboration, I was captured by his vision. For Erdem × H&M he has created an enchanting world full of beauty, delicacy and rich details. These are special pieces you will want to wear forever.’

In brief: Deadly Ponies Man’s 2017 latest; Vivienne Westwood previews Berlin festival; Patricia Barker is new RNZB artistic director

Deadly Ponies Man has launched its latest collection for 2017, inspired by the ocean, using Ink bovine leather and shearling, and brass highlights. It’s meant to convey the idea of a ‘moody seascape’ and an ‘intrepid voyager’, which the promotional images suggest. That’s interpreted with classic items such as the Phantom duffle (now a weekender with zips going right down the side) and a range of travel accessories; and if the seascape idea isn’t evident enough, a notebook inside Deadly Ponies Man’s compendium has pastel blue and white hues resembling water washing up on beaches.




   Bread & Butter by Zalando previewed its second festival of style and culture in Berlin, with the theme of Bold. Jefferson Hack moderated the evening, with Dame Vivienne Westwood the VIP of the evening. Others who spoke included Zalando brand marketing VP Carsten Hendrich; and a panel featuring Aitor Throup, Adwoa Aboah, Erika Bowes, Fergus Purcell and MikeQ. A light show, an interactive mirror installation, and a real-time face-projection mapping photo booth followed, with a live performance by Abra and DJs Zora Jones, Bambii and Why Be concluding the night. Other guests included Marie Nasemann and Peaches. The main event takes place September 1 to 3 at Arena Berlin, with more updates via Bread & Butter’s Instagram and Facebook.
   Patricia Barker is the new artistic director of the Royal New Zealand Ballet, and takes up her post this month, succeeding Francesco Ventriglia. Barker is a former prima ballerina and, most recently, artistic director of Grand Rapids Ballet in Michigan. Ventriglia has programmed the RNZB’s 2018 national tours and Barker will realize these. Ventriglia is the guest choreographer for the company’s major commission, Romeo and Juliet, for which rehearsals begin now—the company says this will ensure a smooth transition with the outgoing and incoming directors working side by side for two months. RNZB board chair Steven Fyfe noted, ‘From a large number of excellent applications from New Zealand and all over the world, the board was greatly impressed by Patricia’s vision for all aspects of the RNZB’s activities, together with her experience as an artistic leader. Her knowledge of both contemporary and classical repertoire, as a dancer, coach and director also makes her an outstanding fit for the RNZB.’
   Barker is the RNZB’s 12th artistic director and the second woman to hold the position (after Una Kai in 1973–5).

Party time at the Festival de Cannes on day eight: Elsa Hosk, Irina Shayk, Eva Longoria, Doutzen Krœs

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 KrÅ“s, 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 KrÅ“s, 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.

Teresa Maccapani Missoni teams up with Eloquii on capsule collection


NEWS  by Lucire staff/April 11, 2017/12.44


Designer Teresa Maccapani Missoni, from the famous Italian fashion family, has teamed up with Eloquii on a limited-edition capsule collection.
   Missoni intentionally avoided the family house’s signature stripes, preferring to craft her own direction with the retailer.
   The 24-piece Teresa by Eloquii collection is inspired by memories of the designer’s travels to Sardinia, the African continent and India. There are intricate details, including lurex crochet, hand-beading and embroidery, while silk crêpe and chiffon are among the fabrics used.
   Missoni said in a release, ‘I wanted to excite the Eloquii customer with a collection that is unique yet timeless. I feel strongly about giving this customer choices that stand apart from trends and that instil confidence.’
   Eloquii specializes in fashion for US sizes 12 to 28. The collection is priced from US$75 to US$325, and available online at Eloquii.com.

NEWS  by Lucire staff/April 5, 2017/11.47



Huawei has teamed up with leading New Zealand fashion label Zambesi to launch its P10 and P10 Plus smartphones.
   To mark the New Zealand introduction of the phones on April 12, Zambesi has created a bespoke collection inspired by the P10’s colours, namely the Graphite Black, Dazzling Blue, Dazzling Gold and Prestige Gold.
   The Zambesi collection uses 100 per cent merino wool, black satin and double silk organza gauze in tones of cobalt blue, gold and black, mirroring the P10’s colours.
   The phones will be on display alongside the collection at Zambesi’s Auckland and Wellington stores.
   The new phones promise some class-leading specs, including 5·1- or 5·5-inch screens, larger batteries, 64 Gbyte plus 4 Gbyte RAM, dual Leica cameras on the back and a Leica front-facing (selfie) camera, fingerprint-repelling Hyper Diamond-Cut metal finishing with colours created in partnership with Pantone, a Kirin 960 processor running Android 7, and support for 4·5G networks.
   They also offer Te Reo Māori as a standard language option in New Zealand.
   Huawei is so confident of the P10’s glass that it offers a complimentary three-month screen replacement guarantee. Retail price is NZ$999 for the P10, and NZ$1,199 for the P10 Plus.

Milla Jovovich launches Toyota C-HR in London

At the Printworks in London on February 2, Toyota staged a drive-through immersive theatre experience with actress Milla Jovovich to promote its C-HR sport crossover.
   The event, The Night That Flows, saw 100 guests experience scenes from Berlin, Milano, Paris, Barcelona and London, interacting with actors and projection footage, with narration by Jovovich.
   The Berlin scenes were taken from its International Festival of Light. The Milano scene was backstage at a fashion show, with fashion designer Fabio Attanasio (the Bespoke Dudes) and model Giorgia Palmas in attendance. Croupier and magician Étienne Pradier hosted the Parisian casino scene, while rally driver and pro skier Guerlain Chicherit “drove” guests round a projected roulette table. Spanish DJ Cuartero led a flash mob-style Barcelona club scene, promoting the C-HR’s JBL sounds system, while the final London bar scene saw mixologists Alex Kratena and Simone Caporale with Jovovich herself.
   The event was creative-directed by the Department’s Jonny Grant and Hamish Jenkinson, with Jessica Rees Middleton as executive producer.
   The Toyota C-HR (Coupé-High Rider) is a compact crossover on a platform shared with the Toyota Prius (albeit with a shorter wheelbase), originally designed for the European market and overseen by engineer Hiro Koba. Unusually for Toyota, the company placed style over interior room first, and when the dynamics of the smaller prototype weren’t up to par, they waited for the newer platform, with a lower centre of gravity.

Women’s Wear Daily has broken the news that Riccardo Tisci has left Givenchy.
   Tisci’s last collections for the brand were his menswear and haute couture ones, shown in Paris in January. He departed at the end of the month amicably, according to the trade newspaper.
   His final designs for Givenchy will be red-carpet ones for the Grammy Awards and the Oscars.
   WWD speculates that Tisci could be heading to Versace.
   As a result of his departure, Givenchy will not have a runway show at Paris Fashion Week, and the autumn–winter 2017–18 collection will be designed by the studio.
   No successor has been named.
   Bernard Arnault, CEO of Givenchy parent company LVMH, stated, ‘The chapter Riccardo Tisci has written with the house of Givenchy over the last 12 years represents an incredible vision to sustain its continuous success, and I would like to warmly thank him for his core contribution to the house’s development.’
   Tisci said, ‘I want to thank the LVMH group and M. Bernard Arnault for giving me the platform to express my creativity over the years. I now wish to focus on my personal interests and passions.’
