Georgia May Jagger was guest of honour at Reserved’s German launch at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. Jagger, who also serves as the new label’s face for autumn–winter 2014–15 and walked the catwalk on the night, was among numerous celebrities, including Franziska Knuppe, Daniel Brühl, Jasmin Gerat, Elyas M’Barek, Eva Padberg, Anna-Maria Mühe, Anna Julia Kapfelsperger and Anastasia Zampounidis. Reserved’s ‘Let’s Fashion’ party at Alte Münze Berlin was anything but reserved, with its 1,200 guests.
   DJs Beck To Beck, Terranova, Oskar Melzer, Adam Port and Rampa, and Niki Pauls performed, as well as indie band Oh Land.
   The launch, which showed the autumn–winter 2014–15 line, rather than the spring–summer 2015 one, marks the expansion of LPP SA’s brand into the German market. Reserved already has 500 stores in eastern and central Europe, and this month it will open its online store for German customers. Real-world shops will appear in the autumn at Recklinghausen, Stuttgart, Bremen and Hannover, with further stores planned in every main centre, as well as London and Paris, and in Croatia and Qatar.
   Polish-based LPP’s other brands are Cropp, Mohito, House and Sinsay. The company has revenues of over €1,000 million.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin’s spring–summer 2015 collections saw celebrity front rows at two of the first shows: Marc Cain and Laurèl.
   Marc Cain presented a collection at the Erika Hess Ice Stadium with a circus theme, and drew in an international crowd, including former WAG and model Sylvie Meis, Hilary Swank, Marcia Cross (who had made the journey especially for the Marc Cain show), Motsi Mabuse, Franziska Knuppe, and Nina Eichinger.
   His collection showed a return to pastel tones, with stripes, polka dots, flowers and animal prints.
   Marc Cain founder and chairman Helmut Schlotterer says that the label manages to reinvent itself every season and looks forward to strong sales.
   Laurèl, meanwhile, started its show with airline announcements for ‘Laurèl Airways flight LL 1978 to Berlin’ and ‘On behalf of the Laurèl crew, we wish you a very pleasant flight to our Bohemian Summer Islands. Thank you for choosing Laurèl Airways. Bon voyage!’
   The “dream destination” theme wasn’t a case of Caribbean brightness. Laurèl showed plant prints, frills and flowing pants as its take on a summer holiday: yellow, green and blue were the main colours here with only a few in fiery red and black. ‘Bohemian’ was accurate, but the spring–summer 2015 wearer could also be described as independent and confident.
   Guests included model Bar Refaeli and her brother Dor, tattooist Scott Campbell, Nikolai Kinski with Ina Paule Klink, Franziska Knuppe, Wolke Hegenbarth, Heino and Marie Jeanette Ferch, Barbara Becker and Noah Becker, Jana Pallaske, Vicky Krieps, Pegah Ferydoni, Dominic Raacke with Alexandra Rohleder, Fritzi Haberlandt, Jette Joop, Viktoria Lauterbach, Judith Milberg, Giovanni Zarella, Mirja DuMont, Minu Barati-Fischer, Mariella Ahrens with her daughter Isabella, Martin Krug and Julia Trainer, Jennifer Ulrich, Maria Ehrich, Aino Laberenz and director Bora Dagtekin.

Opel Corsa E breaks cover, as GM releases official details

Lucire staff/7.37

GM has released details of its fifth-generation Opel Corsa (Vauxhall Corsa Mk IV in the UK), promising that the new model will set benchmarks for its class.
   It will have to: it joins a talented segment with cars such as the Ford Fiesta, Renault Clio, Honda Fit, Toyota Vitz and Peugeot 208.
   The Opel Corsa E is virtually identical in length to the outgoing model, with much of the cabin space cleverly used in its 4 m.
   There is a new platform, dubbed Gamma II in GM-speak, with no carryover components from the Corsa D. The new sheetmetal has greater differentiation between three- and five-door models, with styling by Brit Mark Adams. A panoramic roof is optional. Other options include blind spot alert, lane departure warning, and a rear-view camera.
   The new interior has a redesigned instrument panel and dashboard, including Opel’s Intellilink in-car system, already seen on the Adam subcompact, which is on a shorter version of the Corsa E’s platform. Intellilink features a seven-inch colour touch-screen, which can be controlled via apps on the Apple Iphone and Google Android.
   Appealing to the Corsa’s urban drivers, there is a revised speed-sensitive power steering, with less understeer. Ride and handling have also been improved, says Opel.
   Opel has joined the trend toward three-cylinder petrol engines, with a one-litre Ecotec direct-injection turbo as the smallest unit, developing 90 or 115 PS. It is combined with a stop–start system to lower fuel consumption.
   A 1·3 turbodiesel, a 1·2 and 1·4 petrol engine, and a 1·4 turbo are also on offer, mated to new six-speed manual and automatic gearboxes.
   The Corsa will not be sold in Australasia or North America, where the Korean-made Chevrolet Aveo (under various names), also on the Gamma II platform, is GM’s entry in the B-segment.

Kiwi artists exhibit in New York, while films on Raf Simons and YSL come to New Zealand

Lucire staff/15.22

Four New Zealand artists are exhibiting in New York from July 1 at Forty:67, at the Artifact Gallery at 84 Orchard Street in the lower east side of Manhattan.
   The exhibition, which comprises painting, photography and jewellery-making, features the work of Sarah Elsby, Nikki Clark, Aphra Ellen, and Jodi Clark. Elsby and Ellen are mother and daughter, and Nikki and Jodi Clark are sisters.
   The work examines the ideas behind identity, place, and culture, or: what does it mean to be a foreigner transplanted to an international centre such as New York City?
   Elsby uses watercolours on paper, exploring the tensions between biomorphic and architectural forms. Photographer Nikki Clark contrasts New York City with the tranquillity of the Whanganui River, near where she grew up, and the similarity of the power in both locations. Jodi Clark’s painting explores how symbols can transcend cultures and history, ‘arranged so they become abstracted from their original intent; taking on a new meaning and life while still triggering memories and nostalgia,’ she says. Ellen’s hand-crafted jewellery has what has been described as a playful approach, inspired by organic forms and odd shapes.
   The gallery is open from 12 to 6 p.m. daily.
   Meanwhile, two fashion films will be part of the New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF), taking place between July and September in Auckland, Wellington and other centres.
   The first, Frédéric Tcheng’s Dior and I (France, 2014), is a behind-the-scenes documentary, following Raf Simons as he creates his first collection for Christian Dior, taking over from John Galliano. It’s already on Lucire fashion editor Sopheak Seng’s must-see list as the festival takes place.
   Yves Saint Laurent, which has had a lot of coverage in Lucire already, is the second film. This is the Jalil Lespert film, which opened in January 2014 in France, and was authorized by Pierre Bergé. (The rival film was authorized by François Pinault.)
   Session dates are available online from nziff.co.nz: the Auckland ones are up now, with the Wellington schedule appearing on Friday, and other centres on July 4.

Above Larry Keigwin’s Megalopolis.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s next season, Allegro: Five Short Ballets, will première in Auckland on July 30 before travelling to Hamilton, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, Invercargill and Dunedin. It will mark the last under artistic director Ethan Stiefel.
   ‘This programme features a world premiere from New Zealander Daniel Belton; two pieces from New York choreographer Larry Keigwin, who quickly became a Kiwi audience favourite after the success of his work Final Dress in 2012; a neoclassical work by one of the most celebrated choreographers of all time, Balanchine; and a brilliant and fun piece from Johan Kobborg,’ said Stiefel in a release.
   Belton’s work, Satellites, blends dance with kinetic sculpture (by Jim Murphy), animation (by Jac Grenfell) and electronic music (by Jan-Bas Bollen). Keigwin has created Mattress Suite, with six scenes about love affairs, either on or near a mattress (to the music of Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Giuseppe Verdi and Etta James), and Megalopolis (music by Steve Reich and MIA). It is the first time Keigwin has allowed a company other than his own to perform his work.
   Gillian Murphy will appear for the final time as the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s principal guest artist in Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante, to the music of Tchaikovsky, while Kobborg’s Les Lutins sees three dancers, a violinist (Benjamin Baker) and pianist (Michael Pansters, in his RNZB début) live on stage, performing music by Bazzini and Wieniawski-Kreisler.
   Allegro runs from July 30 to August 23.

For the main, guests enjoyed fillet of Angus beef accompanied by warm summer vegetables and Jersey royals with herb vinaigrette and horseradish cream. Vanilla panna cotta with English strawberries and honeycomb alongside coffee and petits fours were served for dessert.

Mini re-creates Goodbye Pork Pie chase scene to launch fourth-generation model

Lucire staff/4.53

When BMW launched its Mini at the turn of the century, it resisted doing the obvious thing in its marketing: reenacting The Italian Job. Over the years, various retro Mini marketing ideas have, nevertheless, surfaced, such as ‘Minis have feelings, too,’ re-created one Christmas, and for the New Zealand market, BMW is digging in to the Kiwi cultural archives for the fourth-generation version of the car: Goodbye Pork Pie.
   The Geoff Murphy-helmed film, released in 1981, is legendary in New Zealand, and Mini fans around the world know it, too. The chase–road trip film sees a yellow Mini 1000 head from north to south, and BMW has decided to re-create one of the scenes for a new promo débuting on June 17, starring the latest version of the car.
   New Zealanders who wanted to get a role in the film went to a dedicated Mini website to win a place in the passenger seat, with Wellingtonian Vincent Blake Chilton, 23, getting the prize. Matt Murphy, son of Geoff, directed the new scene, and chose Chilton out of 2,000 entries. Stunt driver Mike Eady put the new Mini Cooper S through its paces around Lake Hawea, with stunt coordinator Harry Dakanalis in pursuit.
   Below is a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot.
   The new Mini, unveiled last November in Oxford and at a star-studded London launch a few days later, starts at NZ$36,200.
   In addition to Goodbye Pork Pie, New Zealand has another cinematic Mini connection: it was where The Italian Job remake, Players, was filmed.

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

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.
