Stradivarius, the fashion label rather than the violin brand, threw a party in Barcelona to launch its customer magazine, with Poppy Delevingne, Atlanta de Cadenet, Harley Viera-Newton and Úrsula Corberó playing host.
   The party, dubbed The Event Paper, was held in a modernist building near Gaudi’s Pavellons GĂŒell (GĂŒell Pavilions), with over 200 guests and Pepino Marino and Crawford DJing. De Cadenet and Viera-Newton took over from the DJs to get guests continuing on the dance floor.
   Photographer Bela Adler held a live shoot at the event, complementing guests using a photo booth. The event will feature in a future issue of Stradivarius’s new magazine.
   The four celebrities were chosen for their recognized roles as “it girls” with their own style. All wore items from the Stradivarius autumn–winter 2014–15 collection, which the company describes as having vintage and boho design elements. The brand is available at around 900 locations in 60 countries.

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve—the multi-layered blended Scotch with honey tones and a woody, fruity flavour—hosted a party with Vanity Fair at the 71st Biennale di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival on Saturday.
   The function kicked off Rankin’s search for the next rising star, with guests including Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Blanca SuĂĄrez, Marie Nasemann, Paolo Stella, Eleonora Carisi, Manos Gavras, Lavinia Guglieman, Eliana Miglio, Sara Cavazza Facchini, and Bejna Bruijning.
   Guests enjoyed the function at the Westin Europa and Regina, where they saw an exclusive exhibition featuring Rankin’s photography. They also had shots taken in a luxury photo booth, which will begin its travels around Europe from September 2014 to February 2015. Rankin will judge the best from the shots during this period, where the winner will star in an online Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve campaign next year. Those who wish to participate can find out more at the Johnnie Walker website.
   In a release, Rankin said, ‘Over the years, I’ve been lucky to capture many celebrities on their rise to fame. Now, in collaboration with Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, I’m looking for a new generation of rising stars, who embody the spirit and passion it takes to succeed, in whatever they put their mind to. Putting down the camera, I’ve designed a photo booth which is a new and different way of shooting for me. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Through special treatments and lighting, I will capture the celebratory moments of today’s rising stars—I am really looking forward to seeing the results.’

Paws for the cause (of pet adoption)

Elyse Glickman/22.08

Dogs once again took centre-stage at the Secret Room’s pre-smash bash for the 2014 Emmys, but cats and kids grabbed the spotlight with a flourish.
   In the ballroom at Beverly Hills’ Montage hotel, there were a lot of well dressed children in tow enjoying the latest toy trends from the US and Germany, and a lot of large, beautifully groomed dogs walking their people. Many dogs who came with Emmy-nominated celebrities and top-drawer stylists were treated royally with designer dog food, grooming gear and even doggy first aid. However, as an owner of a rescue cat, I was please that the I Love Pet Head line by Tigi had some special things for my Pepper (a majestic American short-haired cat) as well as Nico, Leyla’s rambunctious Maine coon who delights in getting his fur matted. Inventor Linda Jangula noted her Wiki Wags included variations for cats in development.
   Even better, I was even more delighted to see that the Humane Society of the United States was back with their message as was the Adopt/Shelter Pet Project, encouraging people to look first into their hearts and then into shelters with memorable commercial spots by the Ad Council (an organization producing public service announcements).
   Another thing that was rather quaint was that there were two companies promoting different kinds of shapewear for women (Rago, upscale and ultra-glam v. Skin Eez, practical, comfortable and therapeutic) and two artisanal chocolate companies (US-made Chuao chocolate, and Belgium’s Guylian).
   Some clever chocolate sushi was located right next to the booth of Dr Sam Saleh, who was not only a proponent of the Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush (‘the Porsche of dental care’) but also the founder of the ORA Dentistry Spa, who counts Tyra Banks as a client and whose expertise has been featured on Extra! and turns to the latest dental technology in restorations, bleaching, veneers and cosmetic contouring to address irregularities, dental stains, dental gaps, metal restorations and altering tooth form, tooth shape and tooth colour.
   There were lovely water bottles from Faucet Face to encourage more home filtering and less plastic, emotional wellness aids from Atlanta-based Vanda, mast and beauty drinks from Ashieda and a fantastic smoothie cookbook and products I cannot wait to try out by Healthy Happy Life that’s 100 per cent vegan by food blogger and photographer Kathy Patalsky.
   On the fashion front, celebrities were treated to futuristic sunglass and prescription frames by Yoshinori Aoyama, creator of Factory 900 eyewear. While most of his goods were pure statement, I found myself lusting after the cool and sleekly classic clear Model 208 and will have them on my holiday wish list. Speaking of holidays, the nice folks from the tourist board of St Kitts were on hand to spark interest in winter getaways to spots of endless summers (minus LA pollution and humidity).
   A highlight of the Red Carpet Style Lounge for the Ă©lite talent were vacation holiday packages to “trip of a lifetime destinations”. These included Alila Villas, crafted luxury in spectacular locations, served-up stays in oceanfront villas at their Uluwatu and Soori Indonesian properties with personal butler, spa services, dining and more; ITC Hotel Maurya New Delhi India gifted eight nights in a luxury suite, airport transfers, luxury buffet breakfast, dinner each night and spa services; Brewery Gulch Inn in Mendocino, California, Travel & Leisure’s winner of World’s Best Awards 2014, will gift a two-night escape in a suite with breakfast and dinner daily featuring locally sourced ingredients prepared by their executive chef. Riviera Resort and Spa Palm Springs is gifting a two-night stay in a one-bedroom suite, dinner for two at Circa 59 and one 50-minute spa treatment at Spa Terre. Lucky recipients included Lena Dunham, Michael Madsen, Taylor Schilling, Lizzy Caplan, Michelle Dockery, Jeff Daniels, Jon Hamm, Peter Dinklage, Sarah Paulson, Kristen Wiig, Jane Lynch, Mark Ruffalo, Cat Deeley, Paul Giamatti, Jimmy Fallon, Joan Cusack, Robin Wright, Anthony Bourdain, Melissa McCarthy, Jessica Lange, Amy Poehler, and Jeff Bridges. Other celebrities spotted include Ashley Argota, Christian Madsen, Colm Meaney, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Cary Fukunaga, Danny Zuker, Caitlin Carmichael, Jamie Brewer, and Mia Talerico.
   Kudos to Amy Boatwright and Rita Branch for putting animals first and healthy living very close behind (and yes, chocolate is good food—antioxidants)!—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor

Georgia May Jagger was guest of honour at Reserved’s German launch at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. Jagger, who also serves as the new label’s face for autumn–winter 2014–15 and walked the catwalk on the night, was among numerous celebrities, including Franziska Knuppe, Daniel BrĂŒhl, Jasmin Gerat, Elyas M’Barek, Eva Padberg, Anna-Maria MĂŒhe, Anna Julia Kapfelsperger and Anastasia Zampounidis. Reserved’s ‘Let’s Fashion’ party at Alte MĂŒnze Berlin was anything but reserved, with its 1,200 guests.
   DJs Beck To Beck, Terranova, Oskar Melzer, Adam Port and Rampa, and Niki Pauls performed, as well as indie band Oh Land.
   The launch, which showed the autumn–winter 2014–15 line, rather than the spring–summer 2015 one, marks the expansion of LPP SA’s brand into the German market. Reserved already has 500 stores in eastern and central Europe, and this month it will open its online store for German customers. Real-world shops will appear in the autumn at Recklinghausen, Stuttgart, Bremen and Hannover, with further stores planned in every main centre, as well as London and Paris, and in Croatia and Qatar.
   Polish-based LPP’s other brands are Cropp, Mohito, House and Sinsay. The company has revenues of over €1,000 million.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin’s spring–summer 2015 collections saw celebrity front rows at two of the first shows: Marc Cain and LaurĂšl.
   Marc Cain presented a collection at the Erika Hess Ice Stadium with a circus theme, and drew in an international crowd, including former WAG and model Sylvie Meis, Hilary Swank, Marcia Cross (who had made the journey especially for the Marc Cain show), Motsi Mabuse, Franziska Knuppe, and Nina Eichinger.
   His collection showed a return to pastel tones, with stripes, polka dots, flowers and animal prints.
   Marc Cain founder and chairman Helmut Schlotterer says that the label manages to reinvent itself every season and looks forward to strong sales.
   LaurĂšl, meanwhile, started its show with airline announcements for ‘LaurĂšl Airways flight LL 1978 to Berlin’ and ‘On behalf of the LaurĂšl crew, we wish you a very pleasant flight to our Bohemian Summer Islands. Thank you for choosing LaurĂšl Airways. Bon voyage!’
   The “dream destination” theme wasn’t a case of Caribbean brightness. LaurĂšl showed plant prints, frills and flowing pants as its take on a summer holiday: yellow, green and blue were the main colours here with only a few in fiery red and black. ‘Bohemian’ was accurate, but the spring–summer 2015 wearer could also be described as independent and confident.
   Guests included model Bar Refaeli and her brother Dor, tattooist Scott Campbell, Nikolai Kinski with Ina Paule Klink, Franziska Knuppe, Wolke Hegenbarth, Heino and Marie Jeanette Ferch, Barbara Becker and Noah Becker, Jana Pallaske, Vicky Krieps, Pegah Ferydoni, Dominic Raacke with Alexandra Rohleder, Fritzi Haberlandt, Jette Joop, Viktoria Lauterbach, Judith Milberg, Giovanni Zarella, Mirja DuMont, Minu Barati-Fischer, Mariella Ahrens with her daughter Isabella, Martin Krug and Julia Trainer, Jennifer Ulrich, Maria Ehrich, Aino Laberenz and director Bora Dagtekin.

For the main, guests enjoyed fillet of Angus beef accompanied by warm summer vegetables and Jersey royals with herb vinaigrette and horseradish cream. Vanilla panna cotta with English strawberries and honeycomb alongside coffee and petits fours were served for dessert.

Wellington’s entrepreneurial women: Lisa Tamati opens jewellery store; publishing house launches

Jack Yan/15.09

Pin It



Lisa Tamati, known in ultra-marathon circles, has a side to her that only a handful of fashionistas are aware of: she is a jeweller, trained in Wien, Austria, who has recently relocated from the Taranaki to Wellington, New Zealand.
   Tamati has opened a shop in Dukes’ Arcade on the corner of Willis and Manners Streets, where she retails her hand-crafted jewellery. She specializes in sterling silver, gold, gemstones, paua, jade and pearls. The designs show a finesse and delicacy, combining her Māori heritage and Pākehā education with the skills she acquired studying and working under Michael Eipeldauer in Wien.
   It is not her first endeavour into retail, having opened shops in Austria and in New Plymouth.
   Tamati is also selling her second book, Running to Extremes, at her store. Her first book, Running Hot, talked of her experience in ultra-marathons. She was the first Australasian woman to compete in the Badwater ultra-marathon in Death Valley, despite a crippling back injury sustained when she was 19. She had already faced an unassisted crossing of the Libyan desert as a personal challenge, and run 222 km across the Niger desert despite suffering from dysentery. In the follow-up, she goes further into the ultra-marathon world, including a second Badwater, the Gobi March, a Saharan race, and La Ultra, 222 km in the Himalayas.
   Despite these achievements, Tamati remains extremely humble and it was her guests at her store opening at the end of May, clamouring to get photographed with her, who were the focus of her attention.
   Tamati is not the only woman to launch a business in Wellington recently. Lawyer Clare Needham has embarked on an independent publishing venture, Giant Sparrow Press, releasing the company’s first title, ShameJoy, at an event earlier this week.
   Written by Julie Hill, ShameJoy—the English translation for Schadenfreude—has a unique New Zealand perspective as well as a dark sense of humour. Hill gave a reading of two short stories from the anthology on Tuesday, which delighted the audience at the launch, while the book itself is available online via Giant Sparrow Press’s website (www.giantsparrowpress.com/bookshop.html).—Jack Yan, Publisher

Other awards included the menswear designer of the year, which was won by Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow for Public School, and presented by James Marsden.

The international award, presented by Marion Cotillard and Dior CEO Sidney Toledano, was won by Raf Simons of Christian Dior.
   Industry stalwart Ruth Finley of the indispensable Fashion Calendar was recognized with the Board of Directors’ Tribute, presented by CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg.
   As chief sponsor, Swarovksi presented three awards for emerging talent, to Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters for Creatures of the Wind in the womenswear category; to Tim Coppens for menswear; and to Irene Neuwirth for accessory design.
   Michael Kors paid tribute to Annabel Tollman, L’Wren Scott, and Art Ortenberg who had passed in the previous year.
   Scholarships were awarded to Yi Deng, Drexel University (Geoffrey Beene Design Scholar), Carmela Osorio Lugo, Savannah College of Art & Design (Liz Claiborne Design Scholar), and Franky Tran, School of the Art Institute of Chicago (CFDA–Teen Vogue Scholar, in partnership with Target).
   â€˜Tonight, we celebrated creativity, experience, and conviction by honoring the diversity and vibrancy of individuals who define the influence of the fashion industry,’ said von Furstenberg.
   â€˜It’s been an honour to partner with the CFDA in celebrating the very best in American fashion for thirteen incredible years, and the creativity of the award winners never fails to amaze. We are especially pleased to support the industry’s next generation through the Swarovski Awards. It’s a privilege to help these dazzling young talents evolve and realize their visions as they take the next steps in their careers,’ said Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski executive board.
