Anna Cleveland models Paule Ka autumn–winter 2017–18, photographed by Miles Aldridge


NEWS  by Lucire staff/July 14, 2017/2.31





Miles Aldridge

Paule Ka has announced that Anna Cleveland will model its autumn–winter 2017–18 collection. The collection, overseen by creative director Alithia Spuri-Zampetti, has been photographed by the famed Miles Aldridge.
   The campaign is an homage to Parisian architecture, with Cleveland appearing suspended in a Haussmannian-era turquoise lounge with gold trim.
   Cleveland’s mother is Pat Cleveland, one of the first black models in the US to achieve prominence, working with some of the top photographers and designers of the 1960s and 1970s.
   Anna Cleveland became a model in her own right, signing with Next Management in the mid-2010s.
   Paule Ka called Spuri-Zampetti and Cleveland ‘kindred spirits’, with the creative director an Italian raised in the US and the model an American raised in Italy. Both now reside in Paris.

Erdem is H&M’s next guest designer—director Baz Luhrmann will helm the film campaign


NEWS  by Lucire staff/July 13, 2017/16.04


H&M

H&M’s latest designer collaboration is with Erdem—and if that wasn’t big enough news, the Swedish giant has enlisted the visionary Australian director Baz Luhrmann to create the film to promote the new range.
   The two talents are perfectly suited: Erdem, created by the Canadian-born, UK-based Erdem Moralioglu, focuses on the ideas of history and personal narrative, finding him favour aming celebrities including the Duchess of Cambridge, Jessica Alba, and Kate Bosworth, while Luhrmann’s films tell fantastic stories that embody imagination and startling visuals. The new collection, which débuts on November 2 in selected stores and online at hm.com, promises to have a spectacular kick-off.
   As with his predecessors, Moralioglu will reinterpret his earlier collections for the collaboration and, for the first time, he will create a menswear collection.
   H&M says he will reinterpret his most celebrated prints and textiles for the Erdem × H&M collection.
   â€˜I am so happy to collaborate with H&M, and to explore my work on a whole new scale including a menswear collection which I have never done before. It’s also such a thrill to work with Baz Luhrmann, one of the most important storytellers of our time,’ said Moralioglu.
   â€˜For me, fashion is always about more than just clothing, it is a form of expression—a standalone art form. I am excited to be collaborating with Erdem and H&M to reveal the story of this unique collection,’ said Luhrmann.
   H&M’s creative adviser, Ann-Sofie Johansson, said, ‘From the moment we started talking with Erdem about the collaboration, I was captured by his vision. For Erdem × H&M he has created an enchanting world full of beauty, delicacy and rich details. These are special pieces you will want to wear forever.’

It’s been over two decades since her famous ‘Hello boys’ campaign for Wonderbra, yet Eva Herzigová remains in high demand as a spokesmodel. Gerry Weber is the latest fashion label to seek the 44-year-old Czech-born, London-based model, who now fronts its autumn–winter 2017–18 campaign.
   The company says it chose Herzigová for her self-confident and approachable style, saying she fits with its values of ‘feminine–casual chic–inspiring.’
   To launch the collection, Gerry Weber had an open fashion night at the weekend during the Halle Open, which the company sponsors.
   The Saturday event saw guests including models Alisar Ailabouni, Rebecca Mir and Luisa Hartema, Werner Schulze-Erdel, tennis players Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev, bloggers Carolin Färber, Monique Romanowski and Tatjana Kreuzmayr, gymnast Fabian Hambüchen, Anna Kraft, Harald Lampp, Jochen Stahler, Niels Koischwitz, Eva Koischwitz, Sibylle Seifert, Michael Bauer, Stefan Becker, Henning Schleemann, Oliver Keeb, Bernhard Kiesel, Franz Stadler, Jan Gritz and Bettina Gritz, Susanne Strauss, Jens Herzig, Oliver Fritz and Carmen Mundt, Juliane Sturm and Richard Doyle, Cornelia Stein, Uli Stein, Jenny Stein, Soenke Lauterbach and Nina Lauterbach, and Irina Weber; Gerry Weber CEO Ralf Weber and CFO David Frink represented the firm. Alle Farben provided the music at the event.
   Wearing designs from the Gerry Weber autumn–winter 2017–18 collection, Herzigová was present on centre court at the Gerry Weber Stadion to present the trophy.
   Gerry Weber’s autumn–winter forecast is for bright colours, such as fuchsia and red; its key look is a cashmere pullover paired with a pleated skirt; and a fuchsia dress with cut-outs in the décolleté. Rhinestones are used as accents.
   It also offers staple autumn shades such as honey and amber, with brick and cinnamon tones. Materials include jersey, leather, lace and Lurex; pleats, metallics and glossy surfaces are also forecast for the season.
   The collection hits stores on September 1, 2017.

Michael Beel scoops top honour at Industry New Zealand Hair Awards; Derek Elvy inducted into Hall of Fame


NEWS  by Sopheak Seng/May 29, 2017/23.54

Talented hairstylist and regular Lucire contributor Michael Beel of Buoy Hairdressing has taken out the top prize at this year’s Industry New Zealand Hair Awards in Auckland.
   His collection is a major departure from his usual work, which sees him focus on big volume and luxury hair. This collection recalled that glamour but in a more ’80s grunge vibe, with short choppy bobs and chic mullets. This was pieced together with bold colouring in chunky panels to create texture and visual interest.
   As part of the prize for winning New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year, Beel has also won a trip sponsored by Wella to work backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.
   While the competition was tough this year with many stand-out and strong collections from all over the country, Beel’s collection stood out for his artistry and direction, in being able to predict and read the Zeitgeist of fashion hair trends.
   Beel was not the only winner of the night from the Buoy salon team. Derek Elvy, who founded the acclaimed salon was inducted into the Hall of Fame for his long, outstanding career in hairdressing.
   Creator of the industry awards, Sara Allsop, said that Elvy being this year’s choice was an easy one.
   â€˜His photographic work was ground-breaking in the ’90s. He paved the way and set the standard in production and creativity which showed New Zealand hairdressers what could be achieved when you collaborated with other creatives. At the time no one else was doing anything close to what he produced.’
   In the 21st century, Elvy continued to be awarded for his creative photographic collections.—Sopheak Seng, Fashion and Beauty Editor
