We’ve had Tamsin Cooper create a line for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Backes & Strauss partner with the English National Ballet, and now, Sarah Jessica Parker and contemporary fine jeweller Cindy Chao have teamed up to create the 2014 Black Label Masterpiece Ballerina Butterfly brooch to benefit the New York City Ballet.
   It’s not quite a full line: this is a one-off to be auctioned by Sotheby’s Hong Kong this October, at the Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite Sale. However, it was created with the New York City Ballet, on which Parker serves as a director, in mind.
   Parker and Chao connected during Chao’s 2011 Masterpiece Exhibition in Beijing. In 2012, when Chao opened her Beijing boutique, at which Parker was guest of honour, that the pair would collaborate on a piece for charity.
   The collaboration, which took place over the last two years, saw them review sketches, wax models and gemstones together.
   The brooch has a titanium and 18 ct gold body. It features a cushion-cut fancy brown diamond weighing 26­·27 ct, three rough brown diamond slices weighing a total of 47·71 ct, three pieces of conch pearls weighing a total of 7·25 ct, surrounded by 4,698 diamonds and fancy-coloured diamonds weighing a total of 98·09 ct.
   It is meant to be signify the beauty, structure, strength and movement of a ballerina, and can be worn either right-side-up or upside-down.
   It will be first shown in Paris during haute couture fashion week, from which Lucire will report next week. It will then travel throughout Asia, before heading to New York and Hong Kong.
   ‘I have had the great pleasure of knowing Cindy and her work for several years, and it has been an incredibly special experience to collaborate with her,’ said Parker. ‘Cindy’s jewellery designs are true works of art; they capture the eye and imagination in a memorable way. I am so pleased to partner with her on this project, which benefits the wonderful work of the New York City Ballet, an organization that is close to my heart.’
   Chao has created a Black Label Masterpiece Butterfly each year since 2008, to symbolize her own metamorphosis, says her company, Cindy Chao—The Art Jewel, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
   ‘Sarah Jessica and I are two very different creative minds sharing the same artistic vision and passion,’ said Chao in a release. ‘She truly appreciates the essence and soul of my creations, and I admire her innovative yet classic view on fashion and style. My annual butterflies carry special meaning for me. Collaborating with Sarah Jessica for a cause we both deeply care for and believe in makes this Ballerina Butterfly all the more special.’
   The net proceeds from the auction will go to the ballet company.

Leading US designer Zac Posen, whom Lucire first interviewed not long after he started in the business, has been appointed creative director for Brooks Brothers’ women’s collection and accessories.
   The company says that Posen will direct the design and merchant teams, and have input on brand development for its women’s label.
   ‘We are thrilled to have Zac join us as creative director of our women’s collection,’ said Claudio Del Vecchio, chairman and CEO of Brooks Brothers in a release. ‘He is one of the most talented and influential American designers working today.’ Del Vecchio pointed out that Posen understood that the brand needed to modernize its range.
   Posen said, ‘I am truly honored and excited to be embarking on this incredible opportunity to take the Brooks Brothers women’s brand into the future while respecting its deep, rich American heritage as an institutional company.’
   Posen’s first women’s collection will début in spring 2016.
   Currently, Posen’s labels include Zac Posen, ZAC Zac Posen and Z Spoke Zac Posen, covering clothing and accessories, with Truly Zac Posen his bridal label in association with David’s Bridal. His eyewear line, in partnership with Kenmark Optical, retails from September. He also judges Project Runway with Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia.
   It is expected that Posen will remain with his own labels while working with Brooks Brothers.
   Brooks Brothers is the US’s longest established apparel brand, and began selling womenswear in 1874. Presently, women’s fashion only represents 20 per cent of its sales.
   Thom Browne will continue to design the Black Fleece line for men and women.

Many Hopes, the charity dedicated to building homes and schools for children in Kenya—and creating sustainable local businesses to make themselves unnecessary in the long term—had its gala on Tuesday.
   Celebrities at the Discover Many Hopes NYC Annual Gala at Canoe Studios on West 26th Street included Jessica Stam, Jeremy Penn, AnnaLynne McCord, Krysta Rodriguez, Jon Batiste, DJ Zeke Thomas, and Alice Callahan Thompson and her husband W. Kyser Thompson.
   The celebrities are said to be big supporters of Many Hopes, and the amount raised exceeded the target, netting $400,877 for the charity.
   Actress Alice Callahan Thompson, who along with her husband chaired one of the auctions, noted, ‘We believe the problem of street children in coastal Kenya is also the solution. I have been involved with this unique organization that rescues and empowers children and teens in Mtwapa, Kenya since 2011.
   ‘My husband and I have travelled to Kenya twice to visit and serve our kiddos and look forward to returning this December. We have witnessed that no one cares more about fighting for justice than those who have suffered injustice. Our oldest girl Brendah is in her second term in law school in Nairobi, as she resolved seven years ago when Many Hopes fought for her rights, that she, too, would fight for the rights of others.’
   Batiste and Thomas provided the music for the evening. Penn had donated a painting of French actress Brigitte Bardot for the silent auction.

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

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.

Sponsored video: American Express wants your EveryDay moments

American Express’s EveryDay Card is an addition to its traditional range of debit and credit cards. It’s aiming at younger consumers by hiring Shameless Maya, the online personality known for her beauty tips and slices of life on YouTube, who recounts her “everyday moment” of heading out with a friend to do some exercise. She invites visitors to post theirs on the page’s comments. Maya’s YouTube channel has just below 405,000 subscribers at the time of writing, so she has some cut-through with some of today’s consumers.
   American Express’s new cards show a reinvigorated company, prepared to explore every segment. Not that long ago, it was looking as though it would fade into the past, the choice of Cary Grant in Charade and Karl Malden in countless advertisements in the 1970s and 1980s, trading somewhat on the notion of the American traveller abroad. Its Travelers’ Checks, once a must for anyone travelling around the world, were beginning to be replaced by credit cards and multi-currency debit cards.
   But where were the cards that had more acceptable interest rates for younger consumers, or the tie-ins with airlines and other partners?
   Realizing it needed a boost, American Express got to work. EveryDay is the latest example of American Express’s partnerships across the retail spectrum in the US, with reward points gained with over 500 brands, mostly in the homeware and clothing sectors—the latter ideal for Lucire readers. Double points can be earned while shopping at US supermarkets. There is no annual fee—unlike other American Express cards which can take out hundreds each year, if not thousands when specifying some of the top-of-the-tree ones. Finally, there is 20 per cent extra to earn if one uses the American Express EveryDay card 20 or more times per month.
   Shameless Maya’s spot is below in our sponsored video.

Supermodel Kate Moss fronts the Kérastase Paris campaign for its new Couture Styling Collection, commemorating one year of the range.
   Couture Styling is Kérastase’s luxury styling collection, with new products added to its portfolio for US release in summer 2014: Laque Noire, a micro-diffusion finishing spray; V.I.P., a texturizing spray; and Baume Double Je, a defining balm.
   The campaign featuring Moss will roll out this season, inspired by what the company calls a “perfectly imperfect” look made famous by French actress Brigitte Bardot, and by the Studio 54 era.
   Moss’s hair was styled by Kérastase artistic director Luigi Murenu. Says Murenu, ‘The Brigitte Bardot “mussed-up” ’60s look is both quintessentially French and completely universal. Kate Moss is the Brigitte Bardot of today. She epitomizes the freedom that every woman wants.’
   Norwegian photographer Sølve Sundsbø shot the campaign in Paris.
   The Kerastase Couture Styling Collection can be purchased through Kérastase salons in the US (see www.kerastase-usa.com/salon-locator for locations), and online at www.kerastase-usa.com.

   Altuzarra received his award from Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. Other awards included the menswear designer of the year, which was won by Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow for Public School, and presented by James Marsden. The accessories’ designer of the year award was won by Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen for the Row, presented by Keri Russell.

The international award, presented by Marion Cotillard and Dior CEO Sidney Toledano, was won by Raf Simons of Christian Dior.
   Industry stalwart Ruth Finley of the indispensable Fashion Calendar was recognized with the Board of Directors’ Tribute, presented by CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg.
   As chief sponsor, Swarovksi presented three awards for emerging talent, to Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters for Creatures of the Wind in the womenswear category; to Tim Coppens for menswear; and to Irene Neuwirth for accessory design.
   Michael Kors paid tribute to Annabel Tollman, L’Wren Scott, and Art Ortenberg who had passed in the previous year.
   Scholarships were awarded to Yi Deng, Drexel University (Geoffrey Beene Design Scholar), Carmela Osorio Lugo, Savannah College of Art & Design (Liz Claiborne Design Scholar), and Franky Tran, School of the Art Institute of Chicago (CFDA–Teen Vogue Scholar, in partnership with Target).
   ‘Tonight, we celebrated creativity, experience, and conviction by honoring the diversity and vibrancy of individuals who define the influence of the fashion industry,’ said von Furstenberg.
   ‘It’s been an honour to partner with the CFDA in celebrating the very best in American fashion for thirteen incredible years, and the creativity of the award winners never fails to amaze. We are especially pleased to support the industry’s next generation through the Swarovski Awards. It’s a privilege to help these dazzling young talents evolve and realize their visions as they take the next steps in their careers,’ said Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski executive board.
