Scandale Paris, Academy Award winner Halle Berry’s lingerie line, has secured distribution in Canada, through Boutique la Vie en Rose’s 63 outlet locations and online at lavieenrose.com. La Vie en Rose is Canada’s largest lingerie retailer.
   Originally founded in 1932, Scandale Paris was reintroduced by Berry, who serves as its creative director and curator, as well as having a co-ownership of the label with the Hong Kong-HQed Hop Lun Ltd. The basic and autumn–winter 2015–16 collections are available in nearly 50 styles, priced from C$9·95 to C$25·95.
   After Emily Gayton and Kristina Oliver had their belongings stolen when they left them on a beach, they decided to do something about it: invent a waterproof bag that you can put your belongings in, then take it swimming with you. They’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to get their Swymbag range, in three styles, into production.
   Oilily, known best for its children’s line, will release its next womenswear collection at the Westergasfabriek during Amsterdam Fashion Week on July 13. ‘To show that Oilily moves with the times, we started the campaign Little Girls Grow up. The idea behind this campaign was to photograph women who grew up with our brand in the ’80s and ’90s wearing our new women’s collection,’ said Gijs de Kogel, Oilily’s marketing director. The campaign will break in time for the spring–summer 2016 season. The company aims to make “slow fashion”, staples that will still look good in half a decade’s time.

Suki Waterhouse is the new face of Redken, the company announced yesterday, joining the likes of Lea T. and Soo Joo Park.
   At 23, Waterhouse is one of the most sought-after models today, as predicted in an earlier issue of Lucire.

She has covered British Vogue, Elle UK, Allure UK and other titles.
   â€˜Suki is known for her chic style and effortless cool,’ said Shane Wolf, global general manager of Redken 5th Avenue in a release. ‘She’s striking, multi-talented and dynamic. She brings a great energy to Redken.’
   The first collaboration will be for Redken’s Diamond Glow Dry Oil this August, a product which reaches New Zealand shores in November. The company has released its first images, and more will appear on Redken’s and Waterhouse’s social media, including her Instagram at @sukiwaterhouse.

Mimco has chosen 29-year-old model Soo Joo Park as the face of its latest campaign.
   The Australian accessories’ brand’s Atomic Ranger campaign was shot in Melbourne in May by Christian Blanchard, right after Park had appeared on the Chanel catwalk.
   Park, who has been gaining greater attention in the last few years, became a L’Oréal Paris ambassador earlier this year, the first Asian-American to be appointed to a global campaign for the French cosmetics’ giant. She has also represented Chanel and Tom Ford.
   With Mimco, she joins a diverse group of women, including Ajak Deng, Holly Rose Emery, Paris Roberts, Jessica Gomes and Alice Burdeu.
   Mimco managing and creative director Cathryn Wills noted in a release, ‘Mimco believes in women in all their individuality, their strength and their ability to lead, inspire, nurture and educate. Soo Joo Park was a perfect brand fit, who celebrates these values and traits.’

Miranda Kerr has also stepped up from modelling to designing, celebrating her first collaboration with Swarovski with a dinner at the company’s Kristallwelten in Wattens in the Austrian Alps.
   The dinner held on Thursday night included guests Bryan Boy, Margaret Zhang and Giovanna Ewbank. The Kristallwelten, one of the big attractions in Wattens celebrating the history of the family-owned jewellery company, had recently reopened, and guests explored the chambers within. The Kristallwelten had first opened 20 years ago with Swarovski’s centenary.
   Afterwards, they joined Kerr, Swarovski board and family member, Robert Buchbauer, creative director and executive vice-president Nathalie Colin, and senior vice-president Alessandro Vergano, for a five-course dinner in the new Daniel’s restaurant, named for the house’s founder.
   Berlin DJ, Hara Katsiki, spun the tunes into the night after the dinner, while Kerr stayed on to mingle with guests.
   Kerr took plenty of selfies for her Instagram, while guests were welcome to join her in many others after the official part of the event.

Wednesday night’s launch for Reserved’s autumn–winter 2015–16 collection had one extra remarkable development: Georgia May Jagger, who was modelling for the brand, had stepped into the role of fashion designer, creating a limited-edition, ready-to-wear line.
   Celebrating the launch at Upside East in München were celebrities including Lena Meyer-Landrut, Aylin Tezel, Stefanie Giesinger, Stephanie Stumph, and Jelena Hofmann. After dinner, the guests enjoyed sets by DJ Rachel Poulliat on the rooftop terrace of Upside East.
   The 40-piece collection took its inspiration from London, and features what the company calls a rebellious, feminine and classy æsthetic, with a cosmopolitan feel. The colour palette plays it safe for a début collection of staples, with black, navy blue, deep red, powder pink and off-white; however, tartan and silver metallic shades show a welcome creativity from the new designer. Natural fabrics such as silk, leather, cashmere, wool and velvet are used.
   â€˜There is a lot of me in the collection, it reflects my own style. I really enjoyed the creation and design process, working together with a lovely team at Reserved. I am excited to see it on the streets and hope the girls will love the variety of the collection as much as I do,’ said Jagger.
   Jagger, daughter of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger and model Jerry Hall, also models in the campaign. The collection hits stores in September.

Our Paris editor’s diary prior to couture week: jewellery, beauty and polo

France is notorious for its dazzling jewellery brands and impressive fashion houses. Its fragrances symbolize an art form that has been worked on and mastered.
   Atelier Cologne is a name that resonates with exceptional luxury, representing divine scents that both men and women can appreciate. The international maison de parfums was established in 2009 by Sylvie Ganter and Christophe Cervasel, who were on a mission to introduce fragrance-savvy wearers with scents also called cologne absolue (pure perfume).
   Exclusive, high-end ingredients provide to their clients’ needs. Their boutique in Paris is a quaint and picturesque getaway from the French capital, tucked away in one of the many Parisian streets steps away from la Concorde and la Place Vendôme. Clients take their time to discover the opulent products. Before haute couture fashion week landed in the city celebrated for its fashion sense, the maison introduced clients to their most recent fragrances.
   Their first scent, Jasmin Angélique, incorporates decadent components of Sichuan pepper, lemon and Siberian angelica. The foundation of the scent is a combination of Persian galbanum, fig, incense from Somalia, and white amber along with Brazilian tonka. This is a fresh and luscious scent that is both attractive and long-lasting.
   For a stronger, bolder scent, one can indulge in Oud Saphir, a mix of birch wood, the audacious aroma of oud, and a Mediterranean tang, all boldly pronounced along with the rich aroma of amber from the Indian peninsula, pink pepper from China and bergamot from Calabria. The scents are delicate, smooth and bold.



   For shimmering skin, Menard’s decadent collection, Saranari, features amazing ingredients for a naturally vibrant glow, and is known for working into the skin’s pores. Its reinvented collection has lys Casablanca at its core, with washing cream, refresh massage, lotion, emulsion, day cream, night cream and eye cream each separately working on rejuvenating the skin, allowing regenerated skin to radiate.


   Swiss-born jewellery designer, Suzanne Syz, creates outstanding, contemporary pieces. The pieces attract the eye with colours and innovative designs, each founded on originality, exclusivity and modernity, always sustaining a look of sophistication.






   For European flair in the heat of the Californian sun, the British Polo Day USA landed at the Will Rogers Estate Park in Los Angeles. The full day of events combined polo tournaments, a dining experience and tea-time together to offer guests an élite getaway. Sponsors included Land Rover, Harrods, Hackett London, Jaeger-LeCoultre and others.—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor

Lucire’s Instagram round-up, June 28

With so much going on in the fashion world 24–7 we at Lucire thought you might need a quick Instagram update on what’s been happening in the lives of models and designers in the last week as we chronicle this world.
   With the spring–summer men’s runway shows in the last couple of weeks, most of the designers have runway shots or close-ups of details: we see that in Vivienne Westwood, Gucci and Valentino’s photos. Moschino released this beautiful illustration by Natalia Sanabria of Daphne Groeneveld in a look from their men’s show.
   The models’ Instagrams are a bit more interesting: Gigi Hadid and Liu Wen are giving us a sneak peak into their different photo shoots, the former with her sister and latter a shot of herself from Vogue. Cara Delevingne’s latest doesn’t have much to do with fashion at all: she is traveling around the world at the moment, promoting her new movie, Paper Towns. Kendall Jenner was also promoting something a little unexpected: a signature lipstick collaboration with none other than Estée Lauder, whom Jenner now represents.—Fenella Clarke

Adidas Originals adds four ’90s-inspired designs to its Tubular line

Adidas Originals released four new shoe designs in its Tubular line for spring–summer 2016 last night at Paris Fashion Week.
   The line of shoes is inspired by the technology of ’90s footwear, in particular the Tubular 93. The collection was unveiled by local performers moving around architectural obstacles in an atmospheric underground venue. This athletic performance perfectly embodied the lightness and agility of the shoes with an intricate light show, which was scored by sound engineer and DJ Michel Gaubert.
   These shoes feature innovative technology with a unique design language, perfectly fitting with the contemporary lifestyles of Adidas Originals customers. The four styles are called the Nova, Doom, X, and Defiant, created by a design team directed by the vice-president of global design at Adidas Originals, Nic Galway. Galway has also helped launch some of the most famous collaborations to date including those with Stella McCartney, Yohji Yamamoto (Y-3) and Adidas by Rick Owens.
   For this line of footwear, Galway wanted to create trainers that belonged to a new generation of radical shoes, and focused on the most iconic characteristics from the ’90s trainers, the signature sole unit. While the functionality and design have been updated to meet 21st century demands, the shoes’ sensibilities still run true to the original design. The shoes themselves all have monochromatic colour schemes and feature the eye-catching EVA sole unit and a similar challenging silhouette to the previous collections in the Tubular line.—Fenella Clarke
