District notes that Kendall Jenner, the new face of Estée Lauder, wears a top from its range. The blush pink top retails for US$108. Blake Lively had also recently chosen District for a photo shoot for her new website, Preserve.


   Charlie’s wants New Zealand customers to try their Straight Up cola, and decide whether it should become a permanent part of its range. Kiwis are invited to post their feedback with a thumbs-up or thumbs-down selfie, or simply write a few words, at Charlie’s Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag #straightupcola.
   Finally, Carrera y Carrera, the Spanish jewellery brand, has launched new visuals with model Alejandra Alonso as its new face. The campaign has been conceived by MAFIA, and features items from Carrera y Carrera’s new Seda Imperial range, as well as from Círculos de Fuego, Bambú and Ruedo. It will break in publications internationally this month.

Expertly executed: the New Zealand School of Dance’s 2014 Graduation Season

Above The challenge of dancing the Balanchine Ballet, Concerto Barocco, here with Samantha Vottari and Tynan Wood. Choreography by George Balanchine, and copyrighted to the George Balanchine Trust.

The New Zealand School of Dance’s Graduation Season for 2014, at Te Whaea Theatre in Wellington from November 19 to 29, is a must for anyone who appreciates dance and wants a glimpse of the next generation of performers.
   The six performances show vitality and variety, from the challenging Balanchine Ballet, Concerto Barocco, to the modern and energetic Trigger II: One Thing Leads to Another, created by the students themselves. While every dancer was on the money with their expertise, technique and stamina, we noted in particular Law Lok Huen in Concerto Barocco, William Keohavong in his solo in The Speech, Amanda Mitrevski in three of the pieces in the final Purcell Pieces, and Mason Kelly, who elicited spontaneous applause after his dance to Purcell’s ‘The Frost Scene’ from the opera King Arthur.
   Balanchine ballets are tough and are especially demanding with their technique, and the Graduation Season opened with one: Concerto Barocco, performed to Bach’s Concerto for two violins, strings and continuo in D minor, BWV 1043. We hadn’t expected to see a ballet but the principal dancers—in tonight’s case, Law Lok Huen, Megan Wright and Jack Bannerman—acquitted themselves expertly, especially as one of the techniques is to move “against” the music.
   In the first set, it was The Speech that captivated us, danced by William Keohavong. Choreographed by Dutch choreographer Wessel Oostrum, Keohavong’s movements were poignant, against the words from Charlie Chaplin’s finishing monologue from The Great Dictator. They were negative when Chaplin’s speech dwelled on negative subjects; more optimistic as they reflected on liberty and freedom. The words, too, seem very fitting for our times, when we question whether corporate greed is driving supposedly free societies. While Oostrom intended The Speech as a tribute to those who lost their lives in World War I, the contemporary choreography coupled with the Tramp’s monologue made it the most socially relevant performance of the night.
   Trigger II: One Thing Leads to Another got the second set off to an energetic start, with 18 dancers (from all years at the School) involved. Students appeared in dull greys and blues initially, and the costumes became more colourful and vibrant as the dance went on. This was an entertaining piece that any lover of modern dance will enjoy, thanks in good part to the direction of Malia Johnston, artistic director of the Brancott Estate World of Wearable Art award show. However, it was Val Caniparoli’s romantic Double Stop, where Samantha Vottari and Tynan Wood gave a poetic duet. We were spellbound with their dance, and it was not surprising to see Qi Huan’s credit as répétiteur. Formerly with the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Huan took up a teaching role earlier this year, after having appeared in some of our favourite lead roles over the years. Caniparoli had already created a beautiful ballet to Philip Glass’s ‘Song II’ that had premièred in 2011, but Vottari and Wood danced this with such passion that belied their status as students of the School of Dance.
   Excerpts from Rapt, which closed the second set, saw alumnus Craig Bary, who was in the original cast in 2011, return to teach the chosen sections to the NZSD dancers, before Douglas Wright, who created the original dance–theatre performance, and his assistant Megan Adams (an NZSD alumna) added the nuances. Being excerpts rather than the full 80-minute work, we focused more on the nine dancers’ considered and precise execution. Once again, we were impressed.
   With two sets having gone extremely well, the third, entitled Purcell Pieces, had to be of a very high quality to keep the audience happy. The School did not disappoint. Choreographed by Nils Christie, and a collaboration between the New Zealand School of Dance, the Queensland Ballet and Singapore Dance Theatre, Purcell Pieces is set to the music of Henry Purcell, but giving each piece a modern interpretation in dance. Loose, colourful costumes designed by Annegien Sneep and Noelene Hill and flowing movements characterized these final dances, with Amanda Mitrevski’s two appearances notable for her expressiveness, and Mason Kelly conveying the sense of solitude and coldness in his performance to ‘The Frost Scene’. Kelly was the stand-out for nearly the entire audience in the third set, judging by the applause. Purcell Pieces ended with rose petals coming down onto the stage, finishing the night on a high.
   The Graduation Season runs at Te Whaea: National Dance & Drama Centre, 11 Hutchison Road, Newtown, Wellington, New Zealand, till November 29, with performances nightly at 7.30 p.m., excepting Sunday and Monday. Matinees will take place on Sunday, November 23 and Saturday, November 29, at 2 p.m. Tickets are NZ$29 for adults, NZ$24 for students and seniors, and NZ$16 for children under 13. Tickets can be booked at www.nzschoolofdance.ac.nz.—Jack Yan, Publisher

Bentley gauges interest with Grand Convertible concept as it guns for Rolls-Royce Drophead

Lucire staff/13.19

Since Volkswagen took over Bentley, the company has only fielded one convertible line in the top tier, the Azure. Since 2010, the marque has left the convertible market for the Continental GTC to pursue, but those wanting something more exclusive have had to turn to Bentley’s former sister brand, Rolls-Royce, which had tapped into the Azure’s former market with the imposing Phantom Drophead. The Rolls-Royce took cues from expensive motor boats, with its wooden rear deck, and the cubic capacity was 6,749 cm³, a single cubic centimetre less than the 6,750 that the company’s cars had as standard for much of the period under Vickers ownership.
   Bentley, not to be outdone, has taken its Mulsanne, which débuted in 2009, and created a new convertible, called simply the Grand Convertible. Under the bonnet is the company’s 6,752 cm³ twin-turbo V8, developing 537 PS (395 kW), while externally, the Grand Convertible has a wooden deck, signalling just which car it is gunning for. However, it is just a concept for now, developed to gauge potential consumer interest.
   Bentley calls the Grand Convertible its ‘most sophisticated open-top car’ and it is relying on being more understated than its rival. It is certainly elegant, and its proportions are more classical than the Continental GTC’s.
   Bentley chairman and CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer, said at the car’s unveiling in Los Angeles, ‘This concept demonstrates Bentley’s ability to create a pinnacle convertible Grand Tourer, while embodying elegance beyond compare. With this car we combine the opulent Mulsanne experience with the full sensory indulgence of open-air touring, continuing to unite luxury and performance in new ways.’
   The car will go on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show from November 19. In December, it will be displayed at Art Basel in Miami.

Estée Lauder has signed model Kendall Jenner for digital, TV, print advertising and social media campaigns.
   The company sees Jenner’s personal social media following as an asset, able to bridge them with fashion and entertainment, while targeting younger consumers.
   She has 30 million fans across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and is believed to be the most socially connected model.
   Estée Lauder global brand president Jane Hertzmark Hudis calls Jenner ‘the ultimate Instagirl. We are excited to leverage her image, voice, energy and extraordinary social media power to introduce Estée Lauder to millions of young women around the world.’
   Jenner says she had known since Paris Fashion Week, but had to keep the news under wraps.
   â€˜It honestly feels like a dream to represent such an iconic beauty brand: it is an incredible honour and quite humbling,’ she says.
   She also features in a 13 pp. editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier in the December 2014 issue of Vogue.
   Jenner had first walked in Marc Jacobs’ fall 2014 show, then at the Chanel haute couture show, followed by an advertising campaign for Givenchy for autumn–winter 2014. She has since walked for Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi. She has worked with photographers such as Demarchelier, Mert & Marcus, Mario Sorrenti and Mikael Janssen, and has appeared in Love, Vogue Paris, W, and Interview.
   She follows in the footsteps of luminaries including Willow Bay, Paulina Porizkova, Elizabeth Hurley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Liu Wen, and Julia Roberts.

Georgia Alice has won the DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship for 2014, taking home the NZ$10,000 prize in international freight, along with coaching in freight and logistics. Sly Guild and Lucy McIntosh were first and second runners-up, with prizes of NZ$1,500 and NZ$500 respectively.
   Georgia Currie, the winning label’s designer, has been operating her label from Christchurch since 2012, after a stint in the development programme at David Jones and training at Christchurch Polytechnic. Georgia Alice is carried at 24 retailers worldwide, including ones in New York and Los Angeles, and has featured in Vogue Australia, Elle Australia, Russh and Oyster.
   Currie said in a release, ‘I am beyond thrilled to have been awarded the DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship. Georgia Alice currently has stockists throughout Australasia and North America, and over the next 12 months with the amazing additional support from DHL, Georgia Alice will be able to confidently continue to export and maintain growth internationally. I am overwhelmed that my brand has been selected and so excited for the future. A huge thank-you to the judges who saw the potential in my brand, and of course to every girl out there wearing Georgia Alice.’
   Dan Gosling of Stolen Girlfriends’ Club, one of the judges and the inaugural winner of the DHL scholarship in 2008, said, ‘The momentum Georgia’s receiving reminds me of what it was like at the beginning with Stolen Girlfriends’ Club. She’s definitely at the tipping-point in terms of her brand. But at the heart of it her collections are strong—you can tell if a garment is a Georgia Alice piece. I could see her being the next Karen Walker.’

Kipling’s Always On, as are our spring–summer 2015 picks from Paris and New York

Lola Cristall/22.34

When we think about the agile monkey symbol, Kipling automatically comes to mind. For fashionistas, it is a brand, but for the literary critics, the name is associated with the world-renowned British author Rudyard Kipling. Neither fashionista nor literary critic is wrong, considering more than two decades ago three designers in Belgium found their inspiration from the author’s The Jungle Book.
   The brand is known for their stylish bags, luggage and travel accessories. Post-fashion week, Kipling took over the remarkable Grand Central Terminal in New York to introduce their Always On collection. The different pieces on display were trendy and practical; music from Harley Viera Newton echoed throughout the site. Have a glance at their styles here:




   On the main part of the site, you’ll find Lucire’s picks for spring–summer 2015 from both the Paris and New York catwalks, and US west coast editor Elyse Glickman looks at Israeli footwear brand Naot, and a recent venture they did with Bellagio Shoes to help the residents of Beit T’Shuvah, a treatment centre that aims to get people back on their feet (pun intended).—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor

Nanette Lepore for Origins launches limited-edition holiday collection in NYC

This past Wednesday I attended the Nanette Lepore for Origins launch of their limited holiday collection at Lepore’s showroom in New York City. This collection was inspired by Lepore’s travels, from Morocco to India to Venezia, and coincides perfectly with Origins’ earth-sourced approach to beauty.
   Nanette’s showroom was the perfect place for the event, showcasing her line’s æsthetic alongside cult-classic products from Origins such as the Clear Improvement charcoal mask and the Ginger Soufflé body cream. I was also introduced to products from the hair line, Ojon, such as the Rare Blend Tamer, a flyaway fixing hair mascara perfect to keep in your purse for humid nights. All the products went into the Nanette Lepore-designed make-up bag that is also great for transitioning your look from day to night as a clutch. The print is colourful and clearly travel-inspired and made of 100 per cent recycled cotton.
   Along with all the products, there was a photo booth and a product styling photo op where you can style the contents of your bag with your own items and supplied common purse items. I added my NYC Metro card, headphones, compass, and lip balm to the Origins and Ojon items I received and the assortment of items they had to choose from. I’m quite proud of my first product styling experience and would love to see other Lucire readers style a #WhatsInMyBag photo. Let me know if you do and tag @Lucire (on Twitter and Instagram). I can’t wait to see what you create!—Jamie Dorman, New York Beauty Editor

Availability: Origins retail stores and Origins.com
Price: Exclusive limited edition cosmetic bag plus a travel size Drink Up hydrating lip balm with any US$65 purchase
