See even more pics here, and why Baz Luhrmann thinks Gis√®le B√ľndchen is the modern embodiment of what Gabrielle Chanel stood for



Hugh Stewart

Chanel has teased its new campaign, dubbed ‘The One That I Want’, featuring Gis√®le B√ľndchen.
   The company has released two images and a 15-second video for the next push of its iconic Chanel No. 5 fragrance. Director Baz Luhrmann helmed the spot, which shows B√ľndchen surfing, and leaning up against a large number 5.
   B√ľndchen herself had released a shot of her holding a Chanel logo surfboard on her Instagram on October 7, and a second image from the campaign on October 11.
   Hugh Stewart shot the latest images of B√ľndchen, who, naturally, wears Chanel make-up, including le Blanc de Chanel and Perfection Lumi√®re Velvet foundation in beige, Cr√®me de Chanel blush in R√©v√©lation, les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in Tiss√© Mademoiselle, Le Volume mascara in black, and Rouge Coco lipstick in Mademoiselle. She wears a pink and black neoprene bikini top and a long-sleeved black and pink neoprene wetsuit especially made by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. The wetsuit sports the iconic 5 on the back.
   The supermodel follows on from other celebrities including Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley and perhaps most unusually, Brad Pitt.
   The campaign breaks on October 15, two years to the day after Pitt’s campaign broke. The hashtag #TheOneThatIWant will be used in social media.

News round-up: Stella McCartney’s Jaguar XE; Ralph Lauren shifts ‚ā¨22,000 Rickys; Perriam launches new brand

Ralph Lauren has been shifting its ‚ā¨22,000 crocodile skin Ricky bags at an event at its Amsterdam store, and gifted one of them to the Netherlands Museum of Bags and Purses. The bag, says the Museum, is regarded as an icon, on a par with the Herm√®s Birkin and the Chanel 2.55. The company also showed a Ricky bag with a USB port and LED lighting on the inside, which will be released worldwide in December, and sold on order.
   On Monday, Stella McCartney did indeed show her version of the Jaguar XE, as part of the Feel XE campaign for the Indian-owned company’s new compact executive saloon. The McCartney XE features her spring‚Äďsummer 2015 ‘Superhero’ print, and a fleet of the cars will be seen on the streets of Paris on Monday to coincide with her new collection. The next reveal of the XE will be at the Salon de Paris on October 2.
   We’ve been fans of Otago designer Christina Perriam for years, and she will unveil a new luxury lifestyle brand, Perriam, in October. The label will adorn New Zealand-made merino clothing and a summer 2015 catwalk launch will take place for the line on October 18 in Bendigo. An online shop will go live at the same time, at perriam.co.nz. Perriam will begin with Woman and Little with Sleep ranges, and Man and Home will be added in 2015.
   And don’t forget the features that appear in the main part of the Lucire website. Jack Yan has tested the BMW 435i, the car that has attracted the most attention out of anything we’ve featured in our pages; Elyse Glickman tries the NutriBulletRx; and Stanley Moss takes in the 500th anniversary commemoration of Magellan’s voyage around the world, in Vicenza. We also had webcast the Miss Universe New Zealand grand final from Sky City Theatre last week, which you can still watch as an archived stream.

Sponsored video: La Redoute wants you to convey the language of love

Lucire staff/11.10

A Lucire special promotion

The French way of life has always seemed more appealing to Britons. Publicis took this tack in introducing us to Nicole and Papa for the Renault Clio over 20 years ago, with sunny imagery and a sense of joie de vivre. It goes beyond ‚Äúthe grass is greener‚ÄĚ, and it‚Äôs that Frenchness that retailer La Redoute has taken for its latest campaign.
   It‚Äôs not sunny scenery this time, but the French language, which, to most Anglophone ears sounds more appealing. Maybe it‚Äôs the way the French have marketed themselves as romantics, and that the ideal language of love is theirs. And with Mr La Redoute (or is Monsieur?), the Francophone character in its latest spot played by Florent Thevenot, things certainly sound smooth.
   Britons are arguably more reserved, partly for cultural reasons and the notion of the ‚Äústiff upper lip‚ÄĚ, and La Redoute believes the French can help us lighten up and express ourselves.
   In fact, we seem to need Valentine‚Äôs Day, birthdays or Christmas to show people we love them‚ÄĒin fact, 22 per cent of people in the UK haven‚Äôt said ‚ÄėI love you‚Äô in over a year, and only 30 per cent say it daily‚ÄĒbut 82 per cent of us wish to hear it. Eighty-three per cent of Brits believe that ‚ÄėI love you‚Äô sounds better in a Continental tongue, with 20 per cent preferring to hear it in French. Fifty-five per cent of women admit they have a penchant for French poetry.
   While the spot won‚Äôt be lost on Francophones, Mr La Redoute tells unsuspecting Brits charming words of endearment‚ÄĒand without spoiling it, let‚Äôs say the participants are not only impressed by the language of love, but he has one more surprise left up his sleeve.
   La Redoute continues to sell French style‚ÄĒits fashion website is number one in fashion and homewares in its home country, and has partnerships with Viktor & Rolf, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Jenzo, Paco Robanne, Yves Saint-Laurent, Isabel Marant and others.
   And it wants to encourage readers to get their messages of love out there, too. Share it with the #languageoflove hashtag on Twitter and Facebook, and get some extra tips from Mr La Redoute via the website.

Retrospectives: great moments in Parisian fashion history, with YSL, McQueen, Galliano, Gaultier

Lucire staff/14.05

What are some of the great fashion moments in recent history? You’ll have seen these videos run on Lucire TV, and we’ve singled them out for an additional focus. In French and English.

1. The departure of Yves Saint Laurent
In January 2001, Yves Saint Laurent retired from the house that bears his name, with the brand’s final haute couture show and retrospective at the Hotel Inter-continental in Paris. Two thousand people were invited to the Centre Pompidou to see Saint Laurent’s 300 greatest classics, and models included Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni, Jerry Hall, and Naomi Campbell. In the final√©, 40 tuxedos paraded to a song performed by Laetitia Casta. Catherine Deneuve, a long-time friend of the designer, was in tears. Saint Laurent died in 2008.
   Saint Laurent says, ‘I tried to prove that Paris was still the city of light and of haute couture, and haute couture made like this was necessary for people’s imaginations. I like seeing my models evolve and seeing how the public react and actually in that moment I feel really close to the public. I still get nervous in this profession. I‚Äôm still not used to it after 42 years. I‚Äôve tried again to perfect this style that has now become really important in fashion, this style that I created and to which I remain loyal, as fashions pass but style stays. It‚Äôs a part of me, it‚Äôs my life. I wouldn‚Äôt know what to do; I wouldn‚Äôt be able to live if I didn‚Äôt make dresses.’

2. The shows of Alexander McQueen
Lee Alexander McQueen was known for his extravagant shows, and had come to most people’s attention after he succeeded John Galliano at Givenchy in 1996. He was later hired by the Gucci Group, joining the group in 2000. Gucci had bought a controlling stake in McQueen’s own label. An extraordinary creator, McQueen was depressed after the death of his mother, and committed suicide in 2010. The video looks at some of his greatest hits.
   Said McQueen: ‘After I left college I went to Paris to look for work, like every student does, and I went to see Martin but he couldn‚Äôt afford to pay me, and then I went to Gaultier and then there was some nasty queen on the front door to Gaultier. And I thought f*** this. I was supposed to be there for five days I was back in five hours, because there was no one else I wanted to work for apart from Margiela and Gaultier ‚Ķ
   ‚ÄėI call myself very schizophrenic; I have so many different, you know, personalities.’
   Katy England notes in the video below, ‘He‚Äôs just got a very clever mind, and he doesn‚Äôt follow fashion, he‚Äôs not that interested in the trends. He just suddenly thinks of something that‚Äôs really really imaginative, he might be inspired by art or ‚Ķ he just has a very strange vision of things which suddenly comes to life. He‚Äôll explain an image and you‚Äôll think wow, that‚Äôs very very strong, and that will then in turn inspire a collection. I‚Äôve never met someone else who thinks of these things, it‚Äôs just exciting really.’

3. John Galliano at Christian Dior, haute couture spring‚Äďsummer 2002
One of John Galliano’s most controversial haute couture collections was for spring‚Äďsummer 2002, where he showed one inspired by the homeless, paying tribute to the ‘ingenuity shown by the underprivileged in the way they dress,’ with unstitched dresses, jacket arms held on by pegs, the layering of trousers and torn effects. Galliano said, ‘There‚Äôs the new cut but it‚Äôs also to show the work, the delicacy of the Dior atelier‚Äôs work, and also to show that this house is a laboratory of ideas where you can thrive off the rest of the house, the ready-to-wear fashion, the collection and the accessories ‚Ķ that‚Äôs why I‚Äôm there, to inspire the house. I cut it up a bit, a little bit crazily and expressively ‚Ķ They took the dress upstairs and they made the whole patronage and everything and they came back down with the same expressive cutting which blew me away, me and Stephen [Jones] couldn‚Äôt tell the difference.’

4. Madonna models for Jean Paul Gaultier
Madonna, who had been friends with Jean Paul Gaultier since 1989 when he made the costumes for her Blonde Ambition tour, went to Paris in September 1994 to model the designer’s spring‚Äďsummer 1995 collection. The show was memorable for both Madonna and Gaultier, for a body corset with a conical bra.
   Looking back, Gaultier says, ‘That exact date in 1989. I knew her from that, professionally because I made the costumes for the Blonde Ambition tour, so that was really fun, it was one of my most beautiful experiences I have to say. An then obviously she modelled for me. First, she modelled in a charity show in LA in support of Aids, and the second time she modelled, you recorded her, at the Mus√©e des Arts Forains, that must have been around ‚Äô96. There you go!
   Marie-Christiane Marek summarizes the influence: ‘Madonna produced a visual shock, leaving a mark on her era and captivating a fascinated public from the end of the ‚Äô80s. She presented corseted silhouettes with conical bras, or more Jean Paul Gaultier men‚Äôs suits. Madonna, therefore, embodied the Parisian designer‚Äôs success, heralding a new feminine era with a stamp of sex appeal.’

Bambi Northwood-Blyth named face of Ba&Sh for autumn‚Äďwinter 2014‚Äď15 fashion campaign

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‚Äďwinter 2014‚Äď15 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.

Photographs of actress Riley Keough modelling for de Grisogono at the Grand Hyatt H√ītel Martinez, where she was based during the Festival de Cannes in May 2014, have been released.
   Using one of the suites, Keough modelled wearing various de Grisogono jewellery items, including the latest Allegra line (in Lucire issue 33), as well as designs from the Gocce and Gypsy collections.
   Paris-based Italian photographer Emanuele Scorcelletti, well known for his portraits and his work with luxury brands, photographed Keough.
   The Allegra collection is ‚ÄėDedicated to a new generation of women, who dare to express their radiance, and explore different shapes and jewelled expressions of their individuality,‚Äô says de Grisogono.
   Keough, who is the granddaughter of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley, began her modelling career in her teens, and first appeared on an international runway for Dolce & Gabbana.
   Her acting d√©but was in The Runaways (2010), and she soon landed the female lead in The Good Doctor (2011) opposite Orlando Bloom. She has recently completed filming on Mad Max: Fury Road, alongside Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Caroline de Maigret the new Lanc√īme muse: brand wants to connect with Parisian attitude

Lucire staff/22.13

Model and music producer Caroline de Maigret is the new muse of Lanc√īme, the company calling her choice ‘an obvious conclusion’.
   Lanc√īme says that de Maigret was chosen for her nonchalance and sophistication, as well as for her musical work (she created, with partner Yarol Poupaud, Bonus Track Records and Yarock Productions), her runway experience, and her aristocracy (descended from Polish and French royalty). She is described by Lanc√īme as ‘the favourite subject of the most renowned photographers of the last two decades; a woman from the fashion world, but one who prefers style in its every form to fashion itself; a strong woman, above all, with great intellectual curiosity and an exceptional grasp of people and things.’
   The collaboration with de Maigret will begin in September as she heads off on an international tour for her book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits, a humorous look at the Parisian attitude, written with Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan and Sophie Mas.
   Lanc√īme says this intellectual wit is in line with its own brand: ‘The brand saw Caroline de Maigret as an expert with whom they could have an intelligent discussion in order to better transmit a different, liberating form of beauty, a smart mix of indulgence and perfectionism, carefreeness and commitment.’
   The second stage sees de Maigret work on a make-up collection for 2015.

Coty Prestige has launched its latest fragrance, Chlo√© Love Story, at a rooftop cocktail party on Wednesday at the l’Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris, with actress Cl√©mence Po√©sy the centre of attention as the fragrance’s muse.
   Po√©sy was joined by guests including Rachida Brakni, Maria Jos√©e Croze, G√©raldine Pailhas, M√©lanie Thierry, Karin Viard, Anne Marivin, Hafsia Herzi, Jos√©phine Japy, Jeanne Damas, Jennifer Neyt, and Catherine Baba.
   Jean Mortier, president of Coty Prestige, and Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, CEO of Chlo√©, hosted the function, alongside Chlo√© creative director Clare Waight Keller, and M√©lanie Laurent, who directed the TV spot revealed last night.
   The spot features the song ‘Mi Amor’, performed by Vanessa Paradis.
   Christine and the Queens provided live music at the venue, which was decorated with a metallic structure, inspired by the fragrance’s packaging in the shape of a lock-shaped fla√ßon. DJ Nouvelle Vague followed.
   The lock motif has been inspired by the Pont des Arts in Paris, which is decorated with padlocks.
   The event tapped into old-fashioned motifs of Paris, with Citro√ęn 2CVs and a boat on the Seine serving as guest transport.
   The fragrance was developed by Anne Flipo, who had previously worked on Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia, Alexander McQueen MyQueen, Donna Karan Woman, and L‚ÄôHomme Yves Saint Laurent. It is her first scent for Coty.
