Coachella west: rocking at Debbie Durkin’s Rock ’n’ Rolla Ecoluxe Lounge at the Avalon

The Emmy Awards kick off the protracted fall—winter “award show season”, and of course, Emmys’ week would never be a true pre-party without the presence of Debbie Durkin (@producerdeb on Twitter), noted sustainable TV–film product-placement professional. However, as the MTV Movie Awards and the internationally covered Coachella music festival outside Palm Springs, Calif. mark the unofficial but “may-as-well” start of Hollywood’s protracted summer, Durkin was not going to let an opportunity to throw a memorable party pass.
   Though there were many sideshows at Coachella 2015 on the concert grounds and in nearby hotels and restaurants, Durkin wisely decided to stage her rock-themed Rock ’n’ Rolla Ecoluxe Lounge (hashtag #EcoLuxeLounge) at the Avalon in Hollywood in advance of the maddening crowds headed east to the Coachella Valley.
   Choices Recovery was the headlining charity, while DJ Mike Shay of Superbox Music and Vanderpump Rules provided the ambient sounds. Celebs and VIPs indulged in sweets from Sugar and Spyked, tattoos by Adam Daniel and a motorcycle display courtesy of Nash Motorcycles, make-up touches by celebrity make-up artist Victoria Rowe and hairstyling from Stephanie Martinez. Durkin’s guests enjoyed a spread that would be right at home at Coachella, including burgers from Fresh & Meaty and award-winning beer from Beachwood BBQ & Brewing, served in sustainable tableware from Repurpose Compostables.
   Hopeful festival-goers picked up Brazilian yoga jumpsuits from Shama Jade, jewellery from Stage Men’s Collection and Glamarella Junk, glamping vacations to Moab and Glacier National Forest from Under Canvas, played with Custos in the celebrity pet lounge from Camp Run-a-Mutt and Letters to The Universe teens-on-tour collected letters from celebrities to generate a connection with self, others and the universe!
   Refreshing drinks were served from Icebox Water, True Toniqs, and Slim Chiller (cocktails and popsicles), and attendees took home a gift bag filled with items from Modern Oats, Barefoot Athletic Company, Fullips, Santa Fe Soul and more!
   Chase Masterson (The Flash, Star Trek) and Herman Moore (retired NFL wide receiver, Detroit Lions) helped spread word about Choices Recovery and create awareness about addiction in Hollywood while interviewing red carpet arrivals and enjoying their Sweet Choices candy bar, courtesy of Infiniti Sweets.
   Film and Television personalities and notables from the cast of Vanderpump Rules, Kendra on Top, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, The Goldbergs and more stopped by Ecoluxe Lounge for an unforgettable day. Notable attendees included: Alana Thompson, a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo, and Mama June Shannon (Here Comes Honey Boo Boo); Scheana Marie Shay, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute, James Kennedy, Tom Schwartz and Peter Madrigal (Vanderpump Rules); Jessica Hall (Kendra on Top); Octavius Johnson (Ray Donovan); Sabina Gadecki (Entourage: the Movie); Scott Bailey (The Bay); Dexter Darden (The Maze Runner); Lexi Ainsworth (Emmy nominee, General Hospital); Ken Davitian (Borat); Monty Greer (MTV’s Awkward); Barbara Alyn Woods (One Tree Hill) with daughters Natalie Alyn Lind (The Goldbergs), Alyvia Alyn Lind (The Young and the Restless) and Emily Alyn Lind (Revenge).
   The encore set for the festival-like gathering was staged at hot Hollywood nightspot Bardot, which kept guests fuelled with passed appetizers from the Avalon Hollywood and Snowater, and posing for pictures in the Party Life photo booth.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor, and Leyla Messian, Correspondent

John Varvatos opens in Detroit with black-carpet party, with Alice Cooper rocking his best

Detroit is undergoing a renaissance, at least in terms of its reputation across the US. A few years ago, Eminem promoted Chrysler as being proudly from Detroit, a city that has been through it all, and John Varvatos now celebrates the place with a new store, opening with a VIP party featuring a live performance by Alice Cooper.
   It’s no surprise, then, to learn that Chrysler had a hand in this party, too, and both Varvatos and Cooper are Detroit natives, proud that their city is emerging out of some of its toughest years.
   The 600-strong ‘black carpet’ party, at which Cooper belted out ‘Nice Guy’, ‘Wheels’, ‘Billion Dollar Babies’, ‘Be My Lover’, ‘Lost in America’, ‘Dirty Diamond’, ‘Bite Your Face Off’, ‘Brown Sugar’, ‘Break on Thru’, ‘Foxy’, ‘My Generation’, ‘18’, ‘Poison’, and ‘School’s Out’, was hosted in association with Dan Gilbert and Bedrock Real Estate.
   Other VIPs included model Kate Upton, Justin Verlander (Detroit Tigers), Michael Bolton, Nicole Curtis, Eric Ebron (Detroit Lions), Chris Chelios (NHL Hall of Famer), R&B and soul singer Dwele, Fiat–Chrysler top brass such as Al Gardner and Olivier François, Nate Forbes, Jim Ketai, Dan Mullen, Devin Gardner (NFL prospect) and Mojo in the Morning hosts Thomas ‘Mojo’ Carballo, Shannon Murphy, and Spike.
   Varvatos introduced the evening in his home town, saying, ‘For me, this is more than a store opening celebration. It’s a kick-off celebration of things to come to the city of Detroit. The future is bright and it’s just the beginning!’
   Cooper noted afterwards, ‘It’s great to be back in Detroit rocking out with John Varvatos.’
   Gardner said in a release, ‘The Chrysler brand has a long-standing partnership with John Varvatos that has evolved over the years, so when he asked us to be a part of this event taking place in our own backyard, we immediately said, “Yes.”’ Chrysler showed off its rebodied 300 on the black carpet, helping cement its position as a Detroit icon.
   Gilbert said, ‘The immeasurable energy felt in the store solidified that the arrival of J. V.’s iconic fashion and rock ’n’ roll brand in downtown Detroit is truly destined for success. With construction well underway for the M-1 Rail along the Woodward Corridor, combined with the rapid growth of retail, restaurants and tech companies opening in downtown Detroit, a grand celebration such as this one is the first of many more to come to Detroiters.’
   The new 4,600 ft², two-storey store is located at a brownstone at 1500 Woodward Avenue, and is owned and managed by Bedrock Real Estate Services. John Varvatos’ full line of menswear is represented, including John Varvatos Collection, John Varvatos Star USA and Converse by John Varvatos.

News in brief: Christina Perriam returns to ID; Preciosa, Johny Dar collaborate; Nana Judy’s pre-Coachella do

Perriam, the luxury merino label from Christina Perriam, will show at ID Dunedin Fashion Week next week. The event begins on April 18 and runs to April 26. The last time she showed was under the Christina Perriam label in 2002.
   Her autumn–winter 2015 collection is structured and edgy, using New Zealand-sourced merino wool mixed with other fabrics and textiles, including merino leather. ‘It’s an amazing texture that you simply don’t find in deer pelts. When you look at a merino sheep, their skin is so wrinkly and that’s why the texture of the leather is really interesting,’ says Perriam.
   Preciosa, the Czech crystal brand HQed in the famed town of Jablonec nad Nisou, has collaborated with Ohio-born designer Johny Dar, known for his extravagant art, on a work called The Queen of Pearls. The sculpture features Preciosa crystals and took Dar 300 hours to complete. The company says it has been valued at €927,000.
   Finally, we learn that one of the “pre-parties” for Coachella, on April 9, was hosted by Australian streetwear label Nana Judy, partnering with One Oak nightclub, Tinder, and Up and Down, at the Château at Lake La Quinta. Celebrity names attending included Joe Jonas, Leonardo DiCaprio, Josh Henderson, Kendall Jenner, skateboarder Corbin Harris and model–blogger Mimi Elashiry.

Goodness and Noa Noa welcome the winter blues

Nikita Brown Photography

When the scene gets quiet, you can always trust our own fashion and beauty editor, Sopheak Seng, to helm a show to get things buzzing again. In collaboration with Goodness, which was the first out of the gate at a two-label show at Caffè l’Affaré last Thursday, Wellington fashionistas and guests escaped the first wintry blasts for one of the more memorable social events on the calendar.
   Goodness’s Chris Hales, whose boutiques have been selling fashionable and sometimes harder-to-find independent designers for some time, launched her own range to complement the likes of Loobie’s Story, Kowtow, Nyne and Deborah Sweeney some time ago, but this was the first catwalk outing that Lucire witnessed. And she understands her customer well: casual separates, paired in unexpected ways, tapping in to the floral trend that’s been forecast for autumn–winter 2015. Taupe and olive similarly conveyed the winter vibe, right on time for the colder months Down Under.
   The second half of the show, styled by Lucire’s Sopheak Seng, showcased Danish label Noa Noa, with a winter collection ‘inspired by the tapestry of life,’ says Seng. Trawling through the markets in France to the bazaars in Marrakech—not unlike our last few print editions, then—the eclectic collection saw masculine lines meeting feminine fabrications, tied with the first half of the show through floral motifs in forest green, Moroccan blue, and tawny red. Sunglasses were donned by each of the models, resplendent in jackets and coats, looking cool as they wandered down the catwalk, much as the designers would have wandered through those bazaars.
   Live music from Ophelia, the indie folk–dubstep duo of Patrick Shanahan and Alex Louise, served as the unique soundtrack to both shows, cranking up the non-mainstream vibe of the show, while in the café, itself one of the trendy spots of the capital, sponsors served up Triple Rock vodka (the jaffa and liquorice varieties were very memorable), Colombo wines, Moa cider, and l’Affarè coffee itself. Clinique did the make-up, Chop created the hair looks using Kevin Murphy, and Rydges were credited with their support for the band. Shoes were from Shoe Connection. Finally, Gazley’s support was very evident with four stylish Alfa Romeo Giuliettas parked outside and a MiTo on the catwalk, upping the Euro credentials with Italian chic. The blue lights shining on the walls surrounding the catwalk served to remind us that one can, indeed, stay warm with the winter blues!

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 Güell (Güell 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 Suárez, 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 élite 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 Brühl, Jasmin Gerat, Elyas M’Barek, Eva Padberg, Anna-Maria Mühe, Anna Julia Kapfelsperger and Anastasia Zampounidis. Reserved’s ‘Let’s Fashion’ party at Alte Münze 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.
