As Lucire celebrates its 17th anniversary on October 20, another New Zealand name will launch a fashion title. Mindfood Style is set to challenge offerings from large groups such as Germany’s Bauer (Fashion Quarterly) and others.
   Mindfood Style will appear on newsstands with a 350 pp. inaugural issue. Issue one will feature a 36 pp. spring–summer 2015 runway report pull-out. Rose McIver (The Lovely Bones) is its first cover girl.
   The masthead adopts a familiar design theme for fashion titles, with a modern typeface, but with the first three letters in Style subtly merging into each other. Bauer Bodoni appears on the cover as Mindfood Style’s serif family choice. The overall effect is tasteful and minimalist, with Mindfood Style eschewing the messy, multiple headlines of other titles in this sector.
   The magazine will publish twice a year, with spring–summer and autumn–winter numbers, and will have its own website at the mindfood.com domain. There will be further support on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, and a weekly newsletter.

Model and businesswoman Heidi Klum will succeed Elle Macpherson with her own lingerie line at Bendon, the company announced today.
   Elle Macpherson Intimates, which first launched in New Zealand in 1990, has established itself as Bendon’s flagship range. As of January, the entire range will be renamed, and Klum will take over Macpherson’s role as the creative director and the face of the brand.
   Heidi Klum Intimates will appear in 1,800 retail locations worldwide.
   The other Macpherson lines will also be rebranded. The men’s line will be named HKMan, and the accessible line will be called Heidi by Heidi Klum.
   Bendon says there will be extensions into swimwear.
   In the last 25 years, Elle Macpherson Intimates had become the largest celebrity-endorsed intimate apparel collection the world, says Bendon.
   In a release, Bendon CEO Justin Davis-Rice called Macpherson ‘a great partner to Bendon’ as the association ended.
   â€˜From the first meeting [with Klum] it was obvious that we were destined to collaborate and work together—her energy, work ethic and passion for lingerie is incredible. I am looking forward to working with her as we continue to build on the heritage of our Intimates brand,’ he added.
   Klum said, ‘I’ve always loved lingerie and can’t describe how incredibly exciting it is to globally launch my Intimates collection with Bendon, a true leader of the industry. In addition to spending a majority of my career modelling lingerie, I am also a woman whose body has changed over the years. I am a mother of four children so I genuinely understand the importance of finding the right lingerie. I want women everywhere to feel sexy, empowered and confident in my collection every time they wear it.’
   Both Davis-Rice and Eric Watson, who co-owns Bendon through his Cullen Investments, citing the globalization of the intimate apparel market, see Klum was being a recognizable face who the company can leverage. Sister brands include Stella McCartney Lingerie, Pleasure State, Fayreform and Lovable.

Shavaughn Ruakere has been named the New Zealand face of Pantene.
   The brand, which remains connected in this market to New Zealand model Rachel Hunter with the catchphrase, ‘It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen,’ announced its new spokeswoman today.
   â€˜I grew up with Pantene, love it, and always trust it to take good care of my hair. I’m so excited to be representing such an innovative brand with a new formulation that makes it even better than before,’ she said in a release.
   More casually, in a tongue-in-cheek fashion, Ruakere told her fans on Facebook, ‘Move over Rachel Hunter!’
   The new formulation contains ‘revolutionary technology Keratin Damage Blockers to help defend hair against irreversible oxidative damage,’ according to the company. More information on the revised formulation can be found at www.pantenepromise.co.nz.

David Trubridge shows off artwork at World of Wearable Art celebrating Brancott Estate’s firsts

Lucire staff/11.00

Visitors to the Brancott Estate World of Wearable Art award show on Sunday night got an extra treat, as furniture and lighting designer David Trubridge showed off a crowdsourced artwork constructed from bamboo plywood to commemorate the concept of “memorable firsts”.
   The theme ties in not only to the World of Wearable Art, but from Brancott Estate’s pioneering heritage as the first to establish a vineyard in New Zealand’s South Island in the 1970s.
   Trubridge and Brancott Estate asked the New Zealand public to submit photographs representing a memorable first. The 500-plus submissions—which the company says ranged from weddings and a first trip abroad to the first blossom of spring—were printed using a red-and-white duotone effect on to lightweight bamboo plywood sheets, which formed the “feathers” in Trubridge’s giant winged creation.
   The artwork was revealed in a performance that resembled a bird taking off on its maiden flight, one of the inspirations Trubridge had. ‘The first thing that jumped into my mind was the image of a young gannet sitting on the edge of the cliff. The first time it flies is the start of its journey all the way to Australia. It takes off and it doesn’t stop,’ he says. The wearer gradually flexed before revealing the full form and all the images with arms outstretched.
   Trubridge had the help of his family in creating the performance, including his wife, Linda, who is an artist, and his son, Sam, who is a member of the performing arts’ faculty at Massey University.
   The wings were held together with twine, and move with the wearer. It presented a new challenge to Trubridge, as he was not accustomed to creating something that would be worn.
   â€˜The process of creating this artwork has taken my team and I on an amazing creative journey and exploration that has led us to many creative firsts. It’s a project I’m very proud to have taken part in,’ says Trubridge.
   â€˜It’s not a single pendant, fixed light or object, it requires a degree of flexibility. Creating something that can transform from a cloak to a wing was a challenge as my work is usually a closed form. We had to have the ability for it to go from one shape to another and flex and move with the figure and that’s a whole new, exciting, pioneering first for us.’
   â€˜David has combined memorable firsts from the New Zealand public into a poetic, moving, kinetic piece of wearable art. The final creation truly embodies the pioneering spirit of Brancott Estate and WOW,’ says Brancott Estate’s chief winemaker, Patrick Materman.
   The artwork was shown at the Brancott Estate bar at the TSB Arena, and a filmed performance can be seen on the website at www.brancottestatewow.co.nz.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet will perform A Christmas Carol for its final season in 2014, in a version created for Northern Ballet in the UK. Northern Ballet’s master, Daniel de Andrade, is in New Zealand to stage the production.
   Based on the Charles Dickens story, the ballet is expected to surprise, with large sets, 650 costume elements, 75 characters and music by television composer Carl Davis that incorporates well known Christmas carols.
   De Andrade said in a release, ‘This evocative production has been a hit in the UK for over 20 years and such was its success that the BBC televised the production. The stunning sets and costumes transport audiences to Victorian England where Dickens’ classic characters are beautifully brought to life by talented dancers who not only dance but sing and act. It’s a narrative masterpiece and you couldn’t find a truer Christmas ballet.’
   Christopher Gable directs, with choreography by Massimo Moricone, production design by Lez Brotherston, and original lighting by Paul Pyant. Nigel Gaynor conducts.
   The ballet opens at the St James Theatre in Wellington on October 30 and tours the country, finishing in Takapuna on December 14. Notably, the company will perform at the newly restored Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch for the first time, on November 20.
   The dates are: Wellington, October 30 and 31, and November 1, 2, 6–8; Dunedin, November 15 and 16; Christchurch, November 20–2; Palmerston North, November 26; Napier, November 29 and 30; Auckland, December 3–7; and Takapuna, December 13 and 14. Full details can be found on the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s website.

Hawkes Bay designer Kate MacKenzie is the winner of the 2014 Brancott Estate Supreme WOW award, at the 26th World of Wearable Art Awards’ Show held in Wellington tonight.
   MacKenzie’s Poly Nation is an inventive design, telling the story of travel and made from leather and cardboard suitcases. The inspiration centred on the idea of ‘If suitcases could talk, they would carry stories of travel, culture and integration.’ It tells the story of people drawn to New Zealand with new ideas and beliefs.
   The design has netted MacKenzie NZ$30,000 in prizes.
   She also took out the Air New Zealand South Pacific section.
   MacKenzie had come third, along with Deidre Morgan, last year in the American Express Open section.
   Lynne Christiansen of San Francisco, Calif. took second place. She has entered seven times, and has won awards before, including the 2013 International Americas Award. Christiansen’s Gothic Habit was made from laser-etched felt and wood, constructed from 2,300 individually cut pieces to form a gothic cathedral. Christiansen also won the Open Section.
   In the individual categories, My Gradational Body by Zhujun Zhu of China won the Avant-Garde section; Fenced off by Luiz Fernando Sereno Penna of New Zealand won the children’s section.
   The Spark Creative Excellence section, with the Airborne theme this year, was won by Annkathrin Selthofer of Germany with her Waving Gorge design. Sebastian Denize of New Zealand won the Bizarre Bra section with Re-Decked, while Mark Dobson, also of New Zaland, won the Weta Costume and Film section (judged by Weta’s Sir Richard Taylor) with Sakana No Senshi.
   Emily Valentine Bullock of New Zealand took home the WOW Factor Award with her Sulphur Crested Frockatoo; the Shell Sustainability Award was won by Laura van Staveren of the Netherlands with Appearance. Shell also sponsored the Student Innovation Award, which was won by Tess Tavener Hanks of Australia with Baroque Living Room.
   The first-time entrant award was scooped by Ali Khan and Frida Khan of Qatar with Bling Warrior. Pop Cultural by Nicki van Asch of New Zealand won the New Zealand Design Award.
   The four Wellington International Awards, one being awarded to each geographic region, were won by Back to the Future: Chrome Queen, by Joanna Peacock of the UK, for Europe; Girl in Ribbons, by Julian Hartzog of the USA for the Americas; Odette by Lulan Huang of China for Asia; and Fenghuang (phoenix) by Svenja XX of Australia for Australia and the South Pacific.
   Wellington designers (Ross Hardie, Rachel Hardie, Hannah Goldblatt, Dylan Mulder, Kris Eriksen, Ian Loveridge, Liz Ritchie, Paula Rowan, Rénée Louie and Emily Valentine Bullock) netted the lion’s share of prizes this year, taking three section awards, four honourable mentions and one special award.
   Founder Dame Suzie Moncrieff, designer Vicky Taylor, and sculptor Jeff Thomson judged.
   Lucire fashion editor Sopheak Seng will have further thoughts from the designers as he files his report from awards’ night at WOW.
