Shang Xia, a Chinese lifestyle brand, has launched its new Le Chant du Th√© campaign images, photographed by Paolo Roversi. Jiang Qiong Er, the artistic director of Shang Xia, with the collaboration of the Fred & Farid agency in Shanghai, and Roversi himself, came up with the concept, playing on the brand’s Chinese roots. Jiang says, ‘More and more Chinese people, after spending so long dominated by western style, have a need to return to their own cultural heritage.’ By linking it to tea, at the core of Chinese civilization, the photographs feature tea leaves and even a pool of tea, alongside the Shang Xia Lan Yue leather and bamboo bag, the Sculpture overcoat in cashmere felt, and Bridge, a tea service crafted in bamboo.


   Italian supercar brand Lamborghini has announced a limited-edition Aventador LP700-4 Pirelli Edition, celebrating its collaboration with the tyre manufacturer. Pirelli has equipped Lamborghini cars since the beginning in 1963, and the Pirelli Edition, for which orders are being taken now, will be available for delivery in the northern summer. Coup√© and roadster models are available. The Pirelli Edition features a two-tone colour scheme (matt black detailing combined with a body in Giallo Spica, Rosso Mars, Bianco Isis, Nero Aldebaran, Grigio Liqueo or Grigio Ater, or gloss black for the upper parts of the car and the air intakes, with four matt finishes in Bianco Canopus, Nero Nemesis, Grigio Adamas or Grigio Titans for the remainder). There’s a smidge more information on the new model at Lucire Men.

   Est√©e Lauder will acquire Glamglow, a Hollywood skin care brand with a collection of high-end treatment masks, with the deal to close in January.
   The current line includes five mud-based facial skin mask products, each targeting a different skin care concern: Youthmud for anti-ageing, Supermud for problem skin, Thirstymud for hydration, Powermud for deep cleansing, and Brightmud for the under-eye area. A range of daily cleansers will appear in January.
   The four-year-old company, originally called Hollywood’s Boutique Secret, already retails in Sephora, Douglas, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Bloomingdale‚Äôs and, from January, Nordstrom.

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, the most Googled celebrity of the year and one of our news-makers of 2013, was looking stylish as she left the Greenwich Hotel in New York wearing a Breton striped sweatshirt, blazer, skinny leather pants and Givenchy sandals. Lawrence has denied that there is any involvement between her and producer Gabe Polsky, with the actress clarifying that he is the boyfriend of her best friend. The gossip media enjoy speculating‚ÄĒwhen there’s nothing happening.
   Similarly, a quick adjustment by Lady Gaga after a wardrobe malfunction revealed her Spanx merited headlines although what was more impressive, to us, was her feathery white dress, then her plunging white gown and netted overlay that she wore for her guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon later that day. Gaga performed Cole Porter’s ‘Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye’ while on the show, featured below.

A Lucire special promotion

Above Clémence Poésy.

Chlo√© has managed to be ahead of the curve this decade, from signing two up-and-coming actresses at the beginning of the decade‚ÄĒImogen Poots and Camille Rowe Pourcheresse‚ÄĒand, more recently, Cl√©mence Po√©sy, all of whom exhibit different facets of the brand when it comes to its fragrances.
   Chlo√© has managed to be true to its youthful, natural image, while injecting a sense of seduction and modernity. It‚Äôs completely in line with the Chlo√© clothing line‚ÄĒand it‚Äôs imperative that the two work side by side.
   The fragrances, which are from Coty Prestige, are distinguished not just by their scents, but by the faces that promote them. Poots, Rowe Pourcheresse and Po√©sy speak to the younger demographic sought by Coty. Their natural look‚ÄĒthe actresses themselves are regularly photographed wearing nude make-up‚ÄĒties in perfectly with the natural scents of the Chlo√© fragrances, which are always subtle and never over the top. Chlo√©, which was a trend-setting brand in 1950s Paris, happily works in its home city in its promotions.
   Chlo√© Love Story, which was launched in July, is a perfect example, featuring orange blossom, neroli and jasmine stephanotis. The signature Chlo√© scent, meanwhile, is fresh, floral and smooth, with pink peony, freesia, lychee as top notes, magnolia flower, lily of the valley, and rose in the middle, and cedarwood, amber and honey as basenotes. Roses de Chlo√© features Damascene rose and magnolia, while See by Chlo√© has bergamot and apple.
   The range is one of the most youthful and well defined that we know.
   Chlo√© is having a busy Christmas season, focusing on the messages of love, joy and happiness‚ÄĒwishing you a happy holiday season from Chlo√© fragrances. The New Year is going to see even more promotions: as Chlo√© leads up to the 40th anniversary of its fragrances in 2015.

There’s more news from the Kering group as the company continues to shake up its brands: Puma has announced that Rihanna is the creative director of its women’s training line.
   The singer joins Usain Bolt and Mario Balotelli as a global brand ambassador, and attended her first meeting in Germany with the design team on Monday.
   Rihanna says she will be ‘all over it’ when it comes to her involvement with the line. Puma says her influence on the women’s training line will be felt early in 2015.
   Kering wants to boost Puma’s profile alongside Nike and Adidas, and Rihanna’s celebrity status should earn it new adherents.
   Puma CEO Bj√łrn Gulden said in a release, ‘Signing Rihanna is a fantastic step for Puma. Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition‚ÄĒall these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand. She also aligns perfectly with the values Puma strives for: to be confident, brave, determined and joyful. With a strong portfolio in football, running and motorsport, finding an inspiring partner for women‚Äôs training was very important. Rihanna was a natural choice for us. We‚Äôre delighted to have her as a partner, and we‚Äôre looking forward to what‚Äôs to come.’
   Adam Petrick, Puma’s global brand and marketing director, said, ‘Rihanna brings joy to audiences around the world but also ignites and awes. Puma admires her for never waiting for the next big thing, but more so for driving what happens next‚ÄĒin fashion, style, music and soon to be‚ÄĒsports. We can’t wait to empower women worldwide with Rihanna‚ÄĒshe demonstrates a body confidence and determination that is the exact representation of the Puma Woman.’
   Rihanna has already represented brands such as MAC, Giorgio Armani, Nivea and Renault.

Dita von Teese shows XXXtian collection, in collaboration with Christian Louboutin

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.

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 pi√®ce de r√©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 appliqu√©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 appliqu√©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‚Äôs 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.

News in brief: Chanel’s Paris‚ÄďSalzburg collection; Lady Gaga, Eva Longoria in NYC; Anja Rubik launches perfume

Lucire staff/10.59

Karl Lagerfeld has unveiled the 13th Chanel M√©tiers d’Art collection in Salzburg, Austria, recognizing its historical connection with Gabrielle Chanel (she got the inspiration for the Chanel jacket there, at the Hotel Schloss Mittersill, then owned by Baron Hubert von Pantz, with whom she had a fling). Lagerfeld discusses his collection in the video clip below, which showcases the Paris‚ÄďSalzburg collection, featuring Cara Delevingne, who not only closed the show, but is the face of the collection itself.
   The presentation, at the Leopoldskron ch√Ęteau, showcased the fine work of the feather-workers, milliners, tuckers and bootmakers. Lagerfeld took inspiration from traditional Austrian clothing, revisiting the dirndls and lederhosen, using loden, tweed, felt, leather and satin cashmere mix, taffeta and lace. Evening dresses featured pin-tucked fronts, frills, pleats and voluminous sleeves.
   ‚ÄėYou can take inspiration from the apron, from the sleeves, from all the little details, but you have to forget it all and we do it in a new way,’ said Lagerfeld. ‘The star of Salzburg is about the jacket, but what I like is the craftsmanship, the embroidery with all the feathers. There is an unbelievable craftsmanship in all those clothes: most of the embroidery includes stones and many feathers, it‚Äôs like fur, it‚Äôs like flying fur. If you look at them closely, it‚Äôs quite unbelievable; when you see them or you touch them. So I tried, with beautiful fake pearls, to make interesting pearl jewellery that looks like embroidery. It‚Äôs the updated version of what I think it should be, could be, and had to be today.’
   In New York celebrity sightings, Lady Gaga has been spotted wearing the Blake wide-brim hat in oyster felt with pearl trim from Eugenia Kim’s fall 2014 collection last week, while Eva Longoria wore a Ralph & Russo spring‚Äďsummer 2014 white silk cr√™pe cap sleeve embellished jacket with structured peplum, pencil skirt and black alligator belt to the ninth annual L’Or√©al Women of Worth event.
   L’Or√©al Paris notes that Longoria’s look uses True Match liquid foundation in C2 Rose Vanilla, the Volume Million Lashes Excess in Extra Black, Color Riche Le Kajal in 501 Oriental Black, the Super Liner Brow Artist Plumper in medium to dark, and the Elnett Volume Excess hairspray. Blake Lively, very much this year’s L’Or√©al Paris celebrity with all the attention she garnered at Cannes, was also at Women of Worth, her look accomplished with True Match in N3 Creamy Beige, the Glam Bronze Powder Duo in 101 Blonde, the Flash Lash Butterfly in Intenza, Txt Wave Creating Spray, and the Nude Rose Color Riche La Palette.

   Polish model Anja Rubik, 31, meanwhile, has released her new perfume, Original. At Colette in Paris, she discusses some of her beauty tips from her career, including using eyelash curlers and moisturizing your skin. Rubik also reveals that Brigitte Bardot is her ‘ultimate beauty’, and rates Charlotte Gainsbourg and Patty Smyth highly.
   The perfume scents are those that have followed her over the years, namely white lilies and green tea, while the black-and-white imagery was inspired by her love of black-and-white photography and the work of Robert Mapplethorpe.
   Carrera y Carrera is going from strength to strength: the Madrid-based luxury jewellery brand has opened a boutique in Macau, as a first beach-head into China. Manuel Carrera, a fourth-generation descendant of the Carrera family who founded the brand, was on hand with CEO Svetlana Kupriyanova.
