Jameson’s Caskmates launch in New Zealand, blending whiskey and stout; Stadler Form launches art-dĂ©co fan

Lola Cristall/23.23


Jameson Caskmates has launched in New Zealand, after its successful run in Ireland last year. Jameson loaned some of its Midleton Distillery casks to the Franciscan Well brewery in Cork to see what would happen to the brewery’s Irish stout, after a plan was hatched by Jameson Master Distiller, Brian Nation, Master of Whiskey Science, Dave Quinn, and Franciscan Well founder and head brewer, Shane Long when they met in Cork. The casks were then returned to the Distillery and filled with Jameson Irish Whiskey.
   The result was a Jameson Caskmates: a triple-distilled, ‘once stouted’ whiskey with a distinctive taste that features notes of coffee, cocoa, butterscotch and gentle hints of hops.
   Jameson expects that those who enjoy craft beer and whiskey will take to the blending of two disciplines, with a particularly versatile drink. Jameson Caskmates is bottled at 40 per cent ABV and goes on sale in New Zealand from July 2016, with an RRP of NZ$55·99.
   Stadler Form’s art-dĂ©co Q Fan is a stunning work of art that looks gorgeous in any part of the home. While it’s a considerably quiet fan, the strength of the three blades projects plenty of cool air. Whether the simplicity of silver or the boldness of bronze, each colour flawlessly complements its surroundings. Weighing as light as 4 kg (slightly less than 9 lb) the fan comes in three distinct speed levels, adapting according to the environment. Despite the intensity of the hot temperature, it rapidly releases cool air in a minimal amount of time. Designed by famous designer Carlo Borer, the fan is in the form of the letter Q, its stainless steel shaped into an absolute work of art.
   The brand was founded by Martin Stadler in 1998 in Zug, Switzerland. Stadler Form collaborates with renowned Swiss-based designers including Kurt Zimmerli, Fabian Zimmerli and Mathias Walker. Stadler Form has become an internationally distinguished brand, distributing its array of inventive products to more than 40 countries, including humidifiers, fans, air purifiers, heaters, dehumidifiers and aroma diffusers.—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor, and Lucire staff

Kate Moss and Rimmel London have released their latest collaboration celebrating the supermodel’s 15-year relationship with the beauty brand.
   The Kate Moss Rimmel 15th Anniversary Collection comprises Moss’s favourite nude and red lip and nail shades.
   Journalists, bloggers and other guests were invited to a London house where Moss modelled two outfits, initially a black Equipment shirt with red hearts, and a green jacket over a sheer black top.
   Guests were treated to manicures using Rimmel’s new Supergel nail polish shades by manicurist Adam Slee, before a lipstick master-class by make-up artist Kirstin Piggott.
   Stylist ZoĂ« Bedeaux and Scott Wimsett hosted a session where Moss talked of her 15-year association and how her fashion outfits inspired the Collection. Guests then could inspect those outfits and discussed how they inspired the nude and red shades.
   In a release, Moss said, ‘I’m incredibly proud of my 15-year relationship with Rimmel. It’s a brand very close to my heart; my first ever lipstick was Rimmel Heather Shimmer. The partnership has strengthened and evolved over the years, with me taking an actively creative role. The new anniversary collection echoes some of my favourite London looks from the last decade and a half. I’ve focused on reds and nudes because they’re the colours I love to wear—each shade reflects a different side of me.’
   In the collection, the Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate comes in six shades and can last eight hours, numbered 51 through 56; and the Super Gel Nail Polish by Kate gives a shine that lasts for 14 days, and comes in four shades (nos. 15, 42, 44 and 71).

Zlatan Ibrahimović launches A–Z sportswear line; Aéropostale shows off summer ’16 trends

Lucire staff/20.24



AĂ©ropostale, Inc. has announced its summer 2016 trends. The international retailer, with 744 stores in the US and Puerto Rico, 41 in Canada and 310 licensees globally, says the season is about getting away, with a range showcasing a classic, simple, retro look. For women, the trends are ‘Topanga Canyon’, a boho-chic, ’60s look; ‘The Left Coast’, inspired by southern California surf culture with vibrant citrus colours; and ‘Castaway’, light and airy looks with floral prints and water-related motifs. For men, AĂ©ropostale forecasts ‘Wet ’n’ Wild’, with bright, coral shades; ‘Nocturnal Surf’, with neon shades mixed with black and contrasted with grey and white; and ‘Tropic Thunder’, with tropical jungle colours.
   Professional footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović has launched his A–Z sportswear line, with a stark, dĂ©but video about determination and proving the doubters wrong. ‘Play them, beat them, surprise them, never show weakness. Who will conquer? I will,’ says Ibrahimović in his video. ‘You will sweat, cry, scream, bleed … Only one thing will take you from A to Z: you.’ The video was created by Forsman & Bodenfors and directed by Philippe Templeman.
   Ibrahimović says he was driven by what he went through in his past. ‘All the hard work. Feeling different, from where I came. There wasn’t a lot of opportunities. But I took my opportunity. I trained harder than everybody else. I needed to be ten times better than the other ones, because of my background and because of where I came from. This is my way of giving back to all the people out there. This is the people’s brand. I am the people’s man. That is the way it is.’

De Grisogono and its founder and creative director Fawaz Gruosi played host to one of the Festival de Cannes’ most anticipated soirĂ©es at the HĂ´tel du Cap-Eden-Roc. A high-fashion jewellery show, with dresses by Elie Saab, followed by an extravaganza by Ekdokimov, the launch of Euronews’s new identity, a dinner for 650 guests, and a private performance by the Earth, Wind & Fire Experience featuring the Al McKay Allstars, DJ Jack E and DJ Willy.
   Given the Zeitgeist, it was Kim Kardashian West (in Lan Yu) who grabbed paparazzi attention on the evening of day 7, but there were plenty of other top stars there, too: Robert de Niro and Grace Hightower, Paris Hilton looking more radiant than ever, Chanel Iman, Ana Beatriz Barros, Milla Jovovich, Toni Garrn and Chandler Parsons, Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman, Bella Hadid (in Givenchy), Siran Manoukian, Hofit Golan, Valeria Golino, Hailey Clauson, Chris Tucker, Denise Rich, Victoria Lopyreva, Mischa Barton, Mohammed al Turki, David Wertheimer and Toghzan Izbassarova, Lara Lieto, Stephen Hung, Amaury Nolasco, Godeliv van den Brandt, Natasha Poly, Maryna Linchuk, Doina Ciobanu, Rose Bertram, Kenneth Cole, Alina Baikova, Gala Gonzalez, Eva Cavalli, Carolina Parsons, Jean-Roch, Édgar RamĂ­rez and Ana de Armas from Hands of Stone, Violetta Gruosi, Amy Jackson, Gregory van der Weil, Ivana Trump and Massimo Gargia.
   And since you can never get by without your Mum, Kardashian West’s mother Kris Jenner was also a VIP at the extravagant soirĂ©e held during the Festival de Cannes.
   Gruosi took the opportunity to showcase a flawless, colourless rough diamond weighing 404 ct with flawless clarity, one of the 30 largest top-quality ones ever found, and the largest found in Angola.

Festival de Cannes 2016, day 1: Bella Hadid, Araya A. Hargate, Li Bing Bing, Doutzen Kroes at first première

Lucire staff/12.36



Wednesday marked the start of the 2016 Festival de Cannes—the Cannes Film Festival—and once again the cameras were out for celebrity-spotting.
   Chompoo Araya A. Hargate, the well known Thai actress, attended the CafĂ© Society première and opening ceremony in a Ralph & Russo spring–summer 2016 blush pink silk organza strapless ball gown with pin-tucked organza ribbon ruffles cascading over a structured corolla train.
   Bella Hadid wore a nude Roberto Cavalli gown complemented by de Grisogono High Jewellery necklace and Florinda bracelet. She wasn’t alone with choosing de Grisogono for jewellery: Entertainment Tonight’s Carly Steel opted for the Boule white diamond earrings, Vortice white gold bracelet, and Matassa white gold diamond ring to go with her Georges Hobeika gown. Elsa Zylberstein was in a tasteful, sheer bordeaux dress, complemented by de Grisogono’s Melody of Colours earrings and ring. Meanwhile, de Grisogono CEO Fawaz Gruosi had his pick from his company’s range, choosing his New Retro watch.
   Also spotted were Mallika Sherawat in Georges Hobieka, Eva Longoria in Pamella Roland, Julianne Moore in Givenchy, Naomi Watts in Giuseppe Zanotti, Kirsten Dunst in Gucci, and Blake Lively showing her baby bump in Atelier Versace. LeĂŻla Bekhti, Gong Li, Li Bing Bing, Naomi Watts, Doutzen Kroes, Julianne Moore and Susan Sarandon were also resplendent on the red carpet for the première.
   This year, the Festival has a live feed in English and French on YouTube, which are featured at the end of this entry.

In brief: Paula Sweet releases new book; Kardashians and Jenners mobbed by paparazzi; Cannes controversies

Lucire staff/10.25


Many of you have enjoyed Paula Sweet’s photography in Lucire, and now you can have an entire volume of her work with her new book, Do Not.
   Paula has caught signs all over our planet during her travels, and asks in the synopsis, ‘In a world of limitation and regulation, how aware are you of the restrictions placed on your own existence?’
   The premise is an excellent one that encourages us to think: ‘In this collection of signs discovered all over Planet Earth, the artist and photographer Paula Sweet documents the shrinking area of personal freedom and encourages us to rethink the contrary: if a sign is to be placed, should it not encourage us to some productive or positive action?’
   Lucire readers can enjoy a 40 per cent discount for a limited time (US$39·56, marked down from US$65·94), commencing early May 2016, if you use this link here.
   Meanwhile, in the celebrity world, this latest compilation from Celebrity Wire shows how manic things are—and we don’t think there’s much personal freedom for some of these 2016 “names”. Except it isn’t signs restricting their freedom, but a gauntlet of paparazzi. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kris Jenner are seen and photographed leaving homes and heading into clubs and restaurants; “it” couple Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom head into a waiting cab; new Calvin Klein fragrance face and rising actress Margot Robbie left her apartment; and Emma Roberts had lunch, and a dozen followed her home. Surprisingly, Justin Bieber kept a low profile as he walked through LAX, while Christina Applegate gave a thumbs-up but obscured the lower part of her face as she left the terminal. It’s definitely not the life, thank you!
   In our second video, Jane Fonda speaks about the second season of Grace and Frankie at the Netflix première. She notes that during the course of the new season, Grace realizes Frankie is good for her, and they become friends.
   Finally, with the Festival de Cannes about to kick off, Cover looks at five recent controversies to hit the event.
