Pandora has showcased its autumn 2015 collection with what it calls ‘nature-inspired pieces’, reflecting both bohemian and 1970s trends.
   The fairy tale-themed collections are headlined by the Majestic Feathers series, inspired by the phoenix, and featuring everything from stud earrings to a necklace pendant in 0·925 sterling silver and cubic zirconia stones. Incredibly intricate and detailed, these autumn pieces begin at US$50 and now feature on Pandora’s US website. Other autumn additions begin at US$35.
   Pandora is also the official jewellery sponsor for New York Fashion Week, and has partnered with celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez for the occasion.
   Chavez suggests that the Majestic Feather earrings are the ‘perfect bohemian accessory’, and that one should mix metals and layer jewellery for Fashion Week. Suede, she adds, is the go-to fabric for the season.
   Pandora wearers are encouraged to share their autumn looks with the hashtags #ArtofYou and #Pandorastyle.

One of our favourite shows so far at New Zealand Fashion Week (check out our Instagram for regular updates from fashion editor Sopheak Seng) has been that of Stolen Girlfriends’ Club, with its Township Rebellion collection. International hairstylist Richard Kavanagh and Redken worked behind the scenes to give the collection—inspired by the supermodels of the 1990s—its look.
   Kavanagh notes, ‘The hair for Stolen Girlfriends’ Club’s show was luxe, alive, easy and free. Embellished with an oversized gold hairclip, the hair is centre parted with a soft bend and easy bounce.
   â€˜For the boys we had a range of different hairstyles so it was important to make them feel like they belonged to the same crew. There was long unkempt hair, crew cuts, and post punk rocker looks. All kept in place with a combination of Redken for Men styling products.
   â€˜Key products to create the look for the girls are Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine [RRP NZ$45], Redken Rootful 06 [NZ$36] and Redken Pillow Proof [NZ$36].’
   Kavanagh’s tips to re-create the look are below.

   1. To recreate the Stolen Girlfriends’ Club hair look, start with dry hair, put a few drops of Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine through the ends of the hair and a few pumps of Redken Rootful 06 misted on to the roots and mid-lengths.
   2. Blow-dry on highest setting with boar bristle round brush.
   3. Finish with Redken Pillow Proof Two-Day Extender and, finally, pin just above the right ear with a gold barrette.

Blowpro, the blow-out experts who started with a blow-dry bar in the Meatpacking District in Manhattan 10 years ago and has since extended into a line of hair care specially designed for better blow-dry results, has announced that Pretty Little Liars actress and singer Lucy Hale is its new ambassador. The campaign kicks off in late August, with behind-the-scenes imagery featuring Hale with three looks—a beach wave, braided up-do and smooth blow-out—created using the Blowpro Titanium blow-drier, Faux Dry Dry shampoo and Textstyle dry-texture spray. Amanda Friedman photographed the campaign, and Matthew Pappas served as videographer; it was shot at Smashbox Studios over the summer.
   Hale’s preview video is a comprehensive introduction to the products, giving context to Blowpro’s website and Facebook page (at facebook.com/blowprohair, not facebook.com/blowny). She also gives tips on how she uses the various Blowpro products.

Tennis star Rafael Nadal is the new spokesman for Tommy Hilfiger underwear, as well as a Tailored collection and the TH Bold fragrance. The announcement, with a reveal of the fall 2015 advertising campaign featuring Nadal and shot in his home town of Mallorca, was made at Bryant Park on Tuesday, August 25.
   Joining Nadal and Tommy and Dee Hilfiger were Jane Lynch (Glee), Lake Bell (First Day of Camp), Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Martha Stewart, Chanel Iman, Constance Jablonski, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2015 cover girl Hannah Davis, Noah Mills, Arthur Kulkov, Akin Akman, Mary Alice Stephenson, bloggers Bryanboy, Danielle Bernstein and Sazan Barzani, and Tommy Hilfiger CEO Daniel Greider.
   Some of the celebrities present, including Iman, Jablonski, Davis, Mills, Kulkov and Akman, engaged Nadal in a pop-up tennis tournament at Bryant Park. As each team scored a point in the competition, their opponents had to remove a piece of clothing, eventually revealing the Tommy Hilfiger’s men’s and women’s underwear designs. Lynch and Bell played hosts from the umpires’ seat. Nadal, the 14-time Grand Slam winner, won in three consecutive games.
   Barzani ran a live Periscope feed from the event, while comedian Nate Dern, collaborating with Funny or Die, will reveal a series of videos that take a different perspective of the red carpet Q&As.
   The new underwear designs feature new fits, fabrics and deetails. A new four-way stretch technology and premium fabrics promise comfort and durability, according to the company. The Tailored collection features what it calls ‘sharp silhouettes, modern tailoring and rich textures.’ The TH Bold fragrance for men is described as suiting a wearer who has ‘a competitive nature and effortless self-confidence.’
   â€˜Since I first established my brand 30 years ago, we’ve always brought a unique twist to our designs and our advertising. Today’s event continues our tradition of bold, surprising campaigns and iconic ambassadors that celebrate our brand spirit and resonate with our consumers globally,’ said Hilfiger.
   â€˜I love how this event brings together fashion and sport with Tommy’s signature twist—it was the perfect way to kick-off my partnership with Tommy Hilfiger,’ said Nadal.
   The hashtag for the event is #tommyxnadal.

Tiffany & Co. will open its first company-operated retail store in New Zealand in late 2016, to be located in Britomart, Auckland.
   It will be located at the ground floor of the Historic Places Trust-registered Australis House, 36–8 Customs Street, and occupy 430 m² of space. There will be the usual hallmarks: the use of Tiffany blue; polished stainless steel details with a wheat-leaf pattern, identical to that at the Fifth Avenue, New York store; marble and amazonite floors; and custom furnishings inspired by the stained-glass works of Louis Comfort Tiffany, the founder’s son.
   Glen Schlehuber, vice-president and managing director of Tiffany & Co., said, ‘We have many loyal Tiffany customers in New Zealand and have been looking to establish a presence for some time, and the location at Britomart is perfect. We look forward to welcoming everyone to experience our iconic jewellery collections, heritage and craftsmanship that have distinguished Tiffany for over 175 years.’
   Tiffany’s has an existing presence in Auckland through DFS, its trade partner. It has seven stores in Australia, as well as an online presence at www.tiffany.com.au.

   Riley Keough fronts the campaign, created by Parlux Fragrances with ad agency Lloyd & Co., and photographed by Michael Avedoon.

   â€˜We wanted to unite Norell’s strong brand heritage with an elegance that is resolutely modern. Riley Keough and Michael Avedon … [are] both born from enduring legacies and both in command of unique talents for current times,’ said Doug Lloyd, founder and creative director for Lloyd & Co., in a release.
   The new floral fragrance has been created by IFF perfumer Céline Barel, with top notes of galbanum, bergamot, pear and mandarin, mid-notes of jasmine petals, peony, orchid and gardenia, and basenotes of the expensive orris butter, vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla and musk.
   Norell, whose career extended back to silent films, had dressed Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy and Lauren Bacall, and First Lady Michelle Obama donned a vintage dress of his design in 2010.
