Gigi Hadid’s in the Zeitgeist: a Vogue spread, and her make-up artist spills her tips

Lucire staff/4.38

Gigi Hadid’s in the Zeitgeist right now: not only has she appeared in a spread in Vogue with boyfriend Zayn Malik—himself rustling up plenty of headlines in the music world with his solo career—her make-up artist, Julianne Kaye, who currently has the reputation for being behind the beauty for today’s “it girls”, has been spreading the word with her tips on controlling acne.
   Kaye’s tips have appeared in E Online, including using green concealer over your blemish as it will neutralize the red, and pad on the concealer afterwards. She also has tips on dealing with cystic acne using eye drops (that’s not a typo) and acneic skin (try milk of magnesia), which are summarized in the video below, as well as in the original link.
   We’ve also a video on the Vogue shoot from Napoli—you can get a glimpse of the couple’s very romantic photographs as released by the magazine in the second one below.

Carrera y Carrera announces Retiro fine jewellery collection, with items for each of the four seasons

Lucire staff/12.02

Carrera y Carrera has announced its Retiro collection, inspired by the Buen Retiro Park in Madrid and its garden.
   Garden folklore talks of a head gardener, Cecilio RodrĂ­guez, who was in love with the youngest daughter of Duke FernĂĄn NĂșñez. To win her favour, he created the garden with the intent that it would flower every season thanks to its variety of plants, to show that his love would be cyclical and eternal. The Duke, however, disapproved, and RodrĂ­guez was fired, and banished from the garden. The Duke commissioned a statue of Lucifer, at the Fountain of the Falling Angel (1922), to symbolize the failed romance. It is the only known public monument of the devil.
   The new collection has designs for each of the four seasons. Spring designs are inspired by daisies and almond flowers, with transparent pastel shades; summer has more exotic, tropical hues; autumn is marked with reds, ochres and purples; while winter features white gold and diamonds, inspired by the season’s frost and angular icebergs.


Margarita maxi ring in yellow gold, pink sapphires, orange sapphires, and other jewels.

Gecko maxi ring in yellow gold, olivines, topazes and amethyst.

Hoja double ring in rose gold, smokey quartz, prasiolite, pink tourmaline.

Iceberg ring in white gold, blue topaz and diamonds.

In line with the movement that began in the early 2000s for more responsible brands—something this title, along with organizations such as Medinge Group in Sweden, have promoted—Chivas Regal’s the Venture search seeks to find and support the most promising social entrepreneurs creating profitable businesses that also makes a positive impact on people. Lily Cole added credibility as well as celebrity power to the panel discussion in London’s Natural History Museum on Thursday, and debated whether social enterprise would ever grow to a point to solve some of the world’s biggest problems, and whether big business, government and investors should do more.
   Cole herself is a social entrepreneur, having founded Impossible, a social giving network that enables people to share their time, skills and objects. She was joined by Sonal Shah of the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation at Georgetown University, Rajeeb Day, CEO of Enternships, and Thomas Davies, CIO of investment platform Seedrs.
   Alexandre Ricard, chairman and CEO of Pernod Ricard‏, hosted the event.
   Also in attendance were 27 start-ups who had been chosen to compete for a share of the Venture’s $1 million fund. The finalists were taking part in a programme created by the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at the SaĂŻd Business School at Oxford University. The public can vote for their favourite finalist between May 9 and June 13, and determine how the first $250,000 in funding is split among the finalists. They already feature at the Venture’s website at www.theventure.com.
   The remaining $750,000 will be awarded at the Venture’s final in July.

Cara Delevingne models Chanel’s spring–summer 2016 eyewear campaign, shot by Karl Lagerfeld

Lucire staff/4.18



Model Cara Delevingne will model the spring–summer 2016 Chanel eyewear campaign, wearing a tweed and cotton cap, a tweed jacket and a sleeveless top with silver embroideries and ribbon bows from the Chanel Airlines ready-to-wear collection. The campaign breaks in April.
   The advertising will showcase frames from the Plein Soleil and Bijou 2016 collections, and a mirrored mask with a laser-engraved effect from the spring–summer 2016 ready-to-wear catwalk show.
   The Plein Soleil collection has a two-tone look (black merges into blue on the cat-eye frames, and black to white on the oval optical) and is inspired by tie-dye motifs. The Bijou collection features the camellia motif extensively.
   Delevingne appears in blue when modelling the mask, and in more conventional lighting when showing off the regular frames.
   Karl Lagerfeld himself chose Delevingne and shot the campaign.

Jaguar launches XF in style in New Zealand with Murray Crane and Crane Brothers event

Lucire staff/0.56



Arguably, Jaguar launches with more style in New Zealand than in other countries, thanks to its collaboration with its ambassador Murray Crane, and his menswear label Crane Brothers.
   The second-generation XF launch last Thursday saw not just drinks and canapĂ©s, but the release of Crane Brothers’ autumn–winter 2016 collection.
   Held at Crane Brothers’ Auckland central store on High Street, the launch event included the release of a limited-edition Jaguar × Crane Brothers tie collection and an XF chauffeur–test drive service for Crane Brothers customers.
   The tie collection features seven styles in wool, silk and cashmere, featuring British tweed and Donegal tweed, tying in to the Britishness and modernity of the Jaguar brand.
   The chauffeur and test drive service will take Crane Brothers customers from their door (limited to Auckland inner-city locations) to the High Street store, running from today (Monday, March 14) to Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, where they can get a taste of the new XF.
   Jaguar has enjoyed a record-breaking sales’ month at the beginning of 2016 in New Zealand, and the XF is expected to build on the success the company has found with its new XE, F-type and XJ.
   The new XF X251 series is a departure from its predecessor, using an aluminium-intensive architecture inspired by the larger XJ. As noted in Lucire last year, Jaguar cites carbon dioxide emissions of 104 g/km for its most economical XF in the UK. The weight saving means that the new XF is cleaner, and Jaguar claims it is 80 kg lighter than the competition, using the base model for comparison. In terms of environmental impact, Jaguar Land Rover uses a form of aluminium alloy called RC5754, which is predominantly made from recycled material, for its pressings.

Swedish retailer H&M showed its Studio collection for autumn–winter 2016–17 at Paris Fashion Week, at the Bourse de Commerce, last night, on a catwalk patterned after a frozen lake.
   The company says the collection was inspired by ‘strong women and the beauty of independent minds.’
   The collection had a sense of glamour mixed with Bohemian chic and Swedish folklore, with oversized coats, soft forms, ruffles, sheer fabrics, gaucho hats and cowboy boots.
   Amber Valletta, Jourdan Dunn, Freja Beha Erichsen, Ashley Graham, Soo Joo Park and Hari Nef walked the catwalk, while Emma Roberts, Ciara, Atlanta de Cadenet, Olivia Palermo, Pat Cleveland, Ashley Graham, Pernilla Tiesbaek, Suki Waterhouse, Gabriel Day Lewis, Hari Nef, Andreja Pejić and Kate Mara were among the 600 guests attending the show.
   Hennes & Mauritz’s Ann-Sofie Johansson and Margareta van den Bosch were also present for the big night.
   Music was composed by Nicolas Godin of Air, with his track, ‘Mystery Lake’, created especially for the show. A choir performed its track live at the venue.
   The collection goes on sale in 200 stores and online from September 8, 2016.

Paris editor Lola Cristall is currently back in France to cover fashion week there, and a full recap will come later.
   Meanwhile, Dutch designer Liselore Frowijn has shown on day one, with an autumn–winter 2016–17 collection inspired by late French sculptor, painter and filmmaker Niki de St Phalle.
   The collection, dubbed Let’s Hear It for the Lions, is targeted at creative, strong women, and has a brightly coloured palette using primary colours, with the intent of making a bold statement.
   Frowijn showed blazers, dresses and skirts, with layering, and the inventive use of punched-out polka-dot holes. Accessories included wooden necklaces, chokers and knotted foam earrings.
   â€˜They’re very naĂŻvely done in a bold way with primary colours, bold shapes, round volumes, polka dots. It’s a very optimistic way of creating and I wanted to catch this energy that I got from her work in the collection,’ says Frowijn.
   The cheerful, fun collection uses both new and recycled material, sometimes in the same outfit.
