In brief: Evesome’s summer ’21; the Cube handbag; and Bogner’s face masks

Filed by Lucire staff/November 27, 2020/8.25

Summer fresh



Evesome, the French boho chic label, has released its summer 2021 range, made of tweed, and 58 per cent cashmere, 42 per cent linen. Made in France, Eve de Rothiacob’s latest collection continues to use high-quality fabrics and luxury fibres, with each part made individually by hand. She says she is a fan of slow fashion, which means she crafts only two collections per year. There are tasteful clothing including kimonos, scarves, headbands, and bags. Find out more at www.evesome.com, or visit her showroom by appointment in Paris.

The Cube





Giòsa Milano, the label of craftsman Giorgio Santamaria, is already known for his crocodile bags and accessories that he makes from his premises at via Ciovasso al 6 in Milano, Santamaria. His latest creation is the Cube handbag, available in a number of colours—navy, fuchsia (our preference), black, Bordeaux, green and taupe—with a minimalist design and 1990s influences. It features double, flat handles, and a large compartment with zip and a flat pocket. The Cube is produced using traditional techniques and is intended to be a timeless design that is durable and versatile. Find out more at www.giosamilano.com.

Mask style

One of the most famous names in skiing, Bogner, has launched face masks, in a unique cotton knit fabric developed especially for this purpose. A set of two is available for €49·90 at www.bogner.com and selected retailers.

 


Lily-Rose Depp stars in Chanel cruise 2020–1 Balade en Méditerranée promotion

Filed by Lucire staff/November 23, 2020/3.38



Chanel’s promotions pass on to another generation, with Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Vanessa Paradis, helming the promotion for its cruise 2020–1 collection, Balade en Méditerranée, on sale from November 23.
   The campaign, shot in June near Paris, was photographed by Karim Sadi.
   Depp said, ‘As well as for a vacation, this collection is very easy to wear in your daily life. It’s very wearable and effortlessly chic.
   ‘What I think is really special is that everything is so mix-and-matchable.’
   She can see herself taking the collection with her on holiday in the French Riviera, and likes the tweed tops, pants and skirts in the collection.
   Acknowledging the times, Depp says some of these items could complement what one already has in the wardrobe.
   The one accessory that resonates with her the most is the small basket bags, which she feels is reminiscent of ‘going on vacation and having a little beach basket’; and the sunglasses, which ‘allow me to read in the sun.’
   She also praises Virginie Viard, the house’s artistic director, whom she has known for many years. ‘I adore her. She has an elegance and a grace about her that’s very characteristic of the Chanel woman. It’s evident in everything she does.’
   The video below shows Depp behind the scenes on her shoot.










 


Marion Cotillard stars in Chanel’s No. 5 campaign for 2020, to the tune of Lorde’s ‘Team’

Filed by Lucire staff/October 29, 2020/22.59



Chanel has launched a new communications’ campaign for its iconic No. 5 fragrance, with actress Marion Cotillard as its new face.
   ‘Marion was the obvious choice. Returning to a French actress meant returning to a subconscious image of French femininity dear to the spirit of the House,’ said Thomas du Pré de Saint Maur, Chanel’s head of global creative resources for fragrance and beauty.
   ‘What I like about Marion Cotillard is that when she acts, she has this sort of reserve that is simultaneously ultra-powerful. She seems to know what is right and lively, she is fully committed. Like the Chanel woman, who doesn’t escape herself, but faces herself.’
   Said Cotillard, ‘I felt an instant connection with No. 5 which, more than a fragrance, is a work of art. Something I always dreamed of.’
   Cotillard follows in the footsteps of numerous women who have promoted No. 5, from Marilyn Monroe, albeit in an unofficial capacity, to Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Nicole Kidman and Audrey Tautou, even Brad Pitt as an unlikely male choice in 2012.
   Swedish director Johan Renck (Chernobyl, as well as recent campaigns for Coco Mademoiselle and No. 5 l’Eau) helms the new film promoting No. 5.
   The moon plays heavily in the promotion as a romantic symbol and one that represents renewal. The romantic dance between Cotillard and Étoile dancer Jérémie Bélingard was conceived and choreographed by Ryan Heffington. Cotillard spent five days training for the dance.
   For the wardrobe choice, Virginie Viard, Chanel’s artistic director, said she began with a dress worn by Gabrielle Chanel, photographed by Cecil Beaton in 1937. Cotillard’s embroidered lace dress was based on this, but adjusted to fit the actress. Sixteen Lesage embroiders worked on the dress, with 900 hours spent between Chanel and Lesage workshops.
   The soundtrack is the song ‘Team’ by Lorde, covered by Cotillard and recorded by Flavien Berger.


 


Sofia Coppola, Steven Meisel create for Chanel 19, with Margaret Qualley, Taylor Russell, Marine Vacth

Filed by Lucire staff/October 25, 2020/23.56




Steven Meisel

Chanel is one of the few companies still generating an output comparable to where it was before COVID-19. It even has big names working on projects as usual, with Sofia Coppola directing the campaign for the Chanel 19 bag. It was over to Steven Meisel to photograph the stills, featuring three muses: Margaret Qualley, Taylor Russell, and Marine Vacth, each an accomplished young actress appearing in what Chanel calls a light-hearted and fun campaign.
   Coppola noted that Chanel’s artistic director, Virginie Viard, ‘loves and respects the House and keeps it moving forward for today’s woman, based on what Gabrielle Chanel started and what Karl Lagerfeld continued.’
   Of the campaign, Coppola said, ‘I wanted to show how Chanel is so classic it can work with many personalities, and is great to show on different women.’
   Russell said, ‘The mood of this campaign feels very buoyant, open, and friendly. The colours and tones are exceptionally eye-catching and bright and evoke a warmth and playful energy. It makes you want to smile.’
   Said Vacth, ‘It’s wonderful seeing the unique personality of each one of us emerge through the House’s creations.’
   The Chanel 19 bag features a diamond quilt pattern with an oversized double-C clasp, and a long metal chain.

Beauty round-up: Living Nature’s new releases, Lancôme grows its own roses

Filed by Lucire staff/October 12, 2020/8.49


The gift of beauty

Internationally acclaimed Living Nature has launched its new Advanced Renewal Night Serum, part of its award-winning serum and oil range. Powered by 100 per cent natural and 78 per cent organic ingredients, it targets the signs of ageing and promotes healthy skin while you sleep. To make it even more indulgent, there’s a luscious vanilla pear fragrance.
   Living Nature has also announced its new lipstick gift set with a trio of sought-after shades. There’s a smart gift box with gold foil accents. The serum retails for NZ$49, and the lipstick set for NZ$66. Find out more at www.livingnature.com.

Smelling sweeter


Lancôme is known for its rose symbol, because of the love of the flower by its founder, Armand Petitjean. And now it’s in the business of growing and cultivating roses to ensure supply for its fragrances. At the Domaine de la Rose in Grasse, a region classified as a UNESCO cultural heritage site, Lancôme will be growing its own roses for the first time with a sustainable, zero-waste process. The company says it will cultivate the centifolia rose, along with olive, plum and fig trees, other plants native to the region, and ancient aromatic plants. There will also be beehives on the site. Next time you sample a Lancôme fragrance, it may well have been created with these eco-friendly roses.

Protect and hydrate

Sunny days always demand good sunscreen protection and Australia’s award-winning Bondi Sands knows a thing or two on the subject. Its new Hydra UV Protect range both protects and hydrates the skin, using plant-based hydration. The range is also infused with ethically sourced algæ, and is reef-friendly. The ingredients also help sooth and nourish after sun exposure. Pictured is the After Sun alœ vera cooling foam, complementing the sunscreen spray, sunscreen lotion, and SPF 50-plus face lotion. Head to www.bondisands.com for more information.

Wood notes

Young Living’s Shutran bar soap features a vegan-friendly essential oil blend, for those who like a clean, woody flavour. It’s been formulated not to dry skin, and gives a creamy lather. For more information on Young Living’s extensive range, visit www.youngliving.co.nz.

 


Chanel releases Coco Mademoiselle l’Eau Privée, a night scent; Keira Knightley fronts campaign

Filed by Lucire staff/August 28, 2020/0.52



Keira Knightley is the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle l’Eau Privée, the house’s latest take on the Coco Mademoiselle range first launched in 2001.
   Overseen by Olivier Polge, Chanel’s in-house parfumier, l’Eau Privée has been described as ‘a watercolour scent’, dialling down the wooden notes in favour of orange, jasmine, rose and musk. Chanel says it remains true to the original oriental fragrance but is more ‘confidential’ and delicate. It is seen as a “night scent”.
   The bottle (50 and 100 ml) is in translucent frosted glass, with the words l’Eau Privée in gold lettering, looking more subtle against the contents.
   With the new addition, Coco Mademoiselle comes in five varieties: eau de toilette, eau de parfum, eau de parfum intense, parfum, and the new l’Eau Privée.
