MAC Cosmetics launches ïŹrst lash bar in New Zealand

Lucire staff/12.00



MAC Cosmetics’ lash bars have made it to New Zealand. The lash bar features a range of lash wands, where a customer can hold up each lash style—there are 14 to choose from—to see if it will enhance their look. Customers then work with a MAC make-up artist, who will provide them a complimentary lash application. The lashes retail for NZ$26.
   The first lash bar is at Smith & Caughey at 225 Broadway, Newmarket, Auckland, at a newly refurbished MAC counter.
   MAC offers individual, half- and full lashes, securely packaged with left and right easily identified. MAC lashes will last through approximately three to six wears, according to the company.
   When removing, gently lift one end and peel off slowly. Lashes should be stored in a cool, dry area. They should also be used with a safe adhesive, such as MAC’s own Duo Lash adhesive.

Victoria’s Secret “Angels” Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel were on hand at the lingerie retailer’s Bond Street store to announce that its annual televised show will be broadcast from London in 2014—and they’d love to see Prince Harry there.
   â€˜We are very excited to be here today because we have a great announcement to make,’ said Lima at the announcement. ‘The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the biggest fashion event the world, for sure, and we’re very proud and honoured to announce that we’re heading to London this year.
   â€˜We would also like to invite Prince Harry if he would love to come.’
   Swanepoel noted that the Prince would have a front-row seat if he chose to attend.
   It is the first time the show has crossed the Atlantic.
   The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been a drawcard for viewers on US networks for years. This year’s edition, on the CBS network, includes musical performances, interviews, model profiles and behind-the-scenes footage.
   The show is eventually seen in 192 countries. In the US, it typically is the number-one show for adults 18–49 and 18–34—sought-after segments for advertisers.
   It is produced by Done and Dusted Inc., with Edward G. Razek, Monica Mitro, Ian Stewart and Hamish Hamilton executive-producing. Hamish Hamilton directs.

Video interview: Alexander Wang on his collaboration with H&M, at the Coachella Music Festival

Lucire staff/22.39


Above H&M’s Margareta van den Bosch and New York designer Alexander Wang.

Alexander Wang (王性仁) is the next designer to collaborate with Hennes & Mauritz, with the announcement made on Saturday at the Coachella Music Festival in Palm Springs, Calif. Online above is video footage from the event, featuring interviews with Wang, Kate Bosworth and Emmy Rossum, along with highlights from the party.
   Wang is the first American to collaborate with H&M in a series that began in 2004, and has seen team-ups with Karl Lagerfeld, Comme Des Garçons, Sonia Rykiel, Roberto Cavalli. Stella McCartney, and Viktor & Rolf. The collaboration will be called Alexander Wang × H&M.
   A beaming Wang says, ‘It’s such an honour. H&M is a brand with so much creativity and they’ve done something so different with these collaborations, and I am so excited to be a part of it with the 10th year anniversary and also be the first American brand that they have collaborated with. It’s really exciting and we have a lot of stuff that’s going to be new for the collaboration that I’m just really excited to reveal in November.’
   In his release, he notes, ‘I am honoured to be a part of H&M’s designer collaborations. The work with their team is an exciting, fun process. They are very open to push boundaries and to set a platform for creativity. This will be a great way for a wider audience to experience elements of the Alexander Wang brand and lifestyle.’
   Bosworth says, ‘I’m so excited for Alex. I’ve known him for such a long time and been an admirer for just as long, and I just live seeing all the success at the moment. H&M is such an accessible label and there is something so inspirational obviously about Alex, and I’m really excited to see what he brings to the brand.’
   Rossum adds, ‘Because I love Alex and I’ve been waiting for so so long for him to ask me to do anything 
 I was happy that I could do something in advance so I could finally wear something of his. I think it’s awesome [he] is doing something for H&M and making it more accessible.’
   Wang’s label was launched in the 2007 and known for its contrasts. The Alexander Wang × H&M collection will have womenswear and menswear, and the Swedish retailer says he will ‘propose a new take on the lifestyle product offering that goes beyond fashion.’
   Margareta van den Bosch, H&M’s creative adviser, says, ‘Alexander Wang is one of the most important voices in fashion today. He understands exactly what people want to wear and does it with an energy and passion that’s infectious. It feels incredible to be collaborating with him this year.’
   The collection will be available in 250 H&M stores worldwide and online, from November 6.

Lucire staff/23.44

Actress Eva Mendes has launched her spring 2014 fashion collection with New York & Company, at two events in California earlier this week.
   New York & Co. had Mendes as guest of honour at the opening of its new Beverly Center pop-up store at 8500 Beverly Boulevard on Tuesday, while on Wednesday, she celebrated her spring collection with NY&C customers at Los Cerritos Center.
   The earlier event saw guests use Instagram with a hashtag, #EvaMendesNYC, to update a live feed at the store, while the later one saw Mendes pose with the first 75 customers who bought from her collection.
   NY&C says that Mendes was inspired by New York in the spring. The collection features ‘rich blues, oranges, vintage floral prints, and soft, earthy tones.’ Mendes was also inspired by family archives and vintage pieces.
   The range hit stores on March 19, on- and offline, with accessories priced from US$22·95 to US$35·95, separates at US$46·95, US$59·95, and US$64·95, and dresses from US$79·95.

Max Fashions’ Lambton Quay store a more inviting space

Lucire staff/23.53



Top Lighter woods and brass give the revamped Max store a more retreat-like feel. Above Max’s Emma Tate, down from Auckland for the event.

Max Fashions’ Lambton Quay store is looking refreshed in Wellington, as Lucire checked out the new space earlier in March at its press opening.
   The logo may be familiar, and the façade isn’t that different to what customers are used to, but inside, the store has a far more welcoming feel.
   Thanks to a canny use of materials (maple and brass) and the available space, the store now feels more homely. Max’s description of a ‘relaxed retreat’ is not far off: when you get inside, especially further down the back of the store, there is a sense of private spaces and a less “commercial” atmosphere to what existed before. Max has also been careful to divide the clothes into themes, helping customers interact based around lifestyle rather than types of garments.
   Cheshire Architects’ Nat Cheshire and Emily Priest were behind the redesign. The new store reopened on February 25.

The Body Shop plays with colour

Christine Min/1.43


The Body Shop has become bolder with its the Colour Up collection for 2014. Now there is make-up—or should I say chalk—for your hair. The limited-edition Hair Chalk (NZ$25) is available in two shades, Tickle Me Pink and Falling for Blue. You can play with your hair colour by simply chalking with the colour pad, sealing with hairspray to finish and easily wash everything off with shampoo when you’re done. Sounds like fun? Sounds like a bright way to dress up for the weekend, without having to commit to the colour permanently.
   The new collection also launches sheer colour lip gloss (NZ$23) and Shimmer Cubes (NZ$42·50) to mix and match colours. Available in store from March 10. For details, check out www.thebodyshop.com.—Christine Min

Rembrandt and Wayward Heir release autumn–winter 2014 menswear looks

Lucire staff/1.56



Top Rembrandt is in a blue mood for winter. Above Wayward Heir takes on a indie musical inspiration for the season.

Rembrandt and Wayward Heir have launched their autumn–winter 2014 collections, available on- and offline.
   Rembrandt has a blue mood, with refined tailoring, including a blue dinner jacket to help men stand out this season. Designer Jonathon Hall says the blue ties in with the season’s key fashion colours of burgundy and earthy brown.
   The label says its other key pieces are the Cooper jacket and Lotus trousers, in blue Reda Italian merino, and the navy and red Caxton jacket. The emphasis is on warm, soft looks for the season, with a slimmer fit in the Lewis and Cornwall jackets, and the Astor trouser.
   Wayward Heir, meanwhile, has a musical inspiration from indie, garage, punk and contemporary music in its An Heirful collection.
   Its press kit included a cool electric guitar lapel pin from the range, and an LP with a Beatles-like logo—although playing the LP we were entertained to the sounds of Strauss waltzes for the afternoon.
   But it’s the fashion that speaks greater volumes and designer Suzanne Roff says there’s a Pete Doherty moodiness to her winter ’14 vision.
   There are vintage tweed checks in the Proto jacket and blue flannel for the peak-lapelled Milano-Punk skinny suit. Wayward Heir also has a slim-fit double-breasted jacket which it dubs Carnaby, and narrow is the order of the day with the Punk trouser and Garage jean. Prints feature images of cassettes and ghetto-blasters, and there’s under-collar guitar embroidery on jackets and suits.




Above Looks from Rembrandt’s autumn–winter 2014. Below Wayward Heir has a modern, youthful style.
