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 NĂșĂ±ez. 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.

In line with the movement that began in the early 2000s for more responsible brandsâsomething this title, along with organizations such as Medinge Group in Sweden, have promotedâChivas 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 Ricardâ, 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.
Model Cara Delevingne will model the springâsummer 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 springâsummer 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.
Swedish retailer H&M showed its Studio collection for autumnâwinter 2016â17 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 PejiÄ 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 autumnâwinter 2016â17 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.
âTheyâre very naĂŻvely done in a bold way with primary colours, bold shapes, round volumes, polka dots. Itâs 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.
