A number of firsts for Lucire, with issue 33 on sale today

Jack Yan/10.00

Lucire issue 33, on sale today, marks a number of firsts and is one of the best we’ve had.
   We’ve always been very fair on who makes the cover. Sopheak Seng, our fashion and beauty editor, and I choose from all the images we have, and these include ones that he has produced as creative director or stylist. And in the years we’ve worked together, he’s opted not to put his ones ahead of others’. We’ve both gone for what is best for Lucire. Some shoots that have appeared on the cover he has worked on in a supervisory role, but others have come from our brilliant network of creatives worldwide.
   Issue 33 sees his first cover that he has directed, and it’s one we’re both exceptionally proud of. Photographed by Dave Richards, and with the A-team of Michael Beel on hair and Hil Cook on make-up, assisted by Jaye Morgan, Natalie Henderson and Andy Alsop, and modelled by Chloé Graham, it’s the first time in 17 years that we’ve cropped the Lucire logo behind the model’s head.
   We realize this technique is commonplace and it’s probably a surprise to anyone reading the above that that hasn’t happened before. And we’ve had many great images—only the best get selected for the coveted spot. But for some reason, when it came to the crunch, we opted to keep the logo complete, as have always done on the website. This time, the image was so striking that we felt it was time to take the scalpel to the logo, thanks to head designer Tanya Sooksombatisatian.
   It is Dave’s first shoot with us, so to score a cover on your first go is very impressive, though it has happened a few other times—Courtney Dailey with Laura Vandervoort in issue 29, for instance.
   I have a feeling, too, that Chloé is the first Scot to be on our cover. While a New Zealander, she hails from Glasgow, and this is rather timely with the Commonwealth Games about to commence.
   I congratulate my good friend and colleague, Sopheak, and I think this is going to be one of those memorable Lucire covers that will be cited in years to come.
   There’s plenty more inside, and you can get a taste of the articles in our issue 33 preview.
   I’m very proud of one shoot by Jon Moe in there, with our California A-team of Jamie Dorman (now in New York, but who was our pointwoman on the shoot), Lei Phillips and Carina Tafalu, and starring two former Miss Universe New Zealands, Laural Barrett and Samantha Lochhead, each in their second appearances in Lucire. Jon lovingly shot this at Riviera 31 at the Sofitel Los Angeles, and I acknowledge our US west coast editor, Elyse Glickman, for her connections with Pivotal Public Relations in getting us the location.
   It’s not the only cover that we can talk about: some of you will have seen Dorit Thies’s and Olga Fonda’s announcement of their cover for Lucire Arabia. (The story is in issue 33, too, but it was strongly felt that Dorit’s shot was the best to début our title there. When you see the pages, you’ll also notice why this is an incredible shoot with the Vampire Diaries star.) We’ll have more on that officially soon, but, for now, you can get your issue 33 through the Lucire website, in print, for tablets (Ipad and Android), and as a downloadable PDF.—Jack Yan, Publisher

Sarah Jessica Parker and Cindy Chao collaborate on brooch to benefit New York City Ballet

We’ve had Tamsin Cooper create a line for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Backes & Strauss partner with the English National Ballet, and now, Sarah Jessica Parker and contemporary fine jeweller Cindy Chao have teamed up to create the 2014 Black Label Masterpiece Ballerina Butterfly brooch to benefit the New York City Ballet.
   It’s not quite a full line: this is a one-off to be auctioned by Sotheby’s Hong Kong this October, at the Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite Sale. However, it was created with the New York City Ballet, on which Parker serves as a director, in mind.
   Parker and Chao connected during Chao’s 2011 Masterpiece Exhibition in Beijing. In 2012, when Chao opened her Beijing boutique, at which Parker was guest of honour, that the pair would collaborate on a piece for charity.
   The collaboration, which took place over the last two years, saw them review sketches, wax models and gemstones together.
   The brooch has a titanium and 18 ct gold body. It features a cushion-cut fancy brown diamond weighing 26­·27 ct, three rough brown diamond slices weighing a total of 47·71 ct, three pieces of conch pearls weighing a total of 7·25 ct, surrounded by 4,698 diamonds and fancy-coloured diamonds weighing a total of 98·09 ct.
   It is meant to be signify the beauty, structure, strength and movement of a ballerina, and can be worn either right-side-up or upside-down.
   It will be first shown in Paris during haute couture fashion week, from which Lucire will report next week. It will then travel throughout Asia, before heading to New York and Hong Kong.
   ‘I have had the great pleasure of knowing Cindy and her work for several years, and it has been an incredibly special experience to collaborate with her,’ said Parker. ‘Cindy’s jewellery designs are true works of art; they capture the eye and imagination in a memorable way. I am so pleased to partner with her on this project, which benefits the wonderful work of the New York City Ballet, an organization that is close to my heart.’
   Chao has created a Black Label Masterpiece Butterfly each year since 2008, to symbolize her own metamorphosis, says her company, Cindy Chao—The Art Jewel, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
   ‘Sarah Jessica and I are two very different creative minds sharing the same artistic vision and passion,’ said Chao in a release. ‘She truly appreciates the essence and soul of my creations, and I admire her innovative yet classic view on fashion and style. My annual butterflies carry special meaning for me. Collaborating with Sarah Jessica for a cause we both deeply care for and believe in makes this Ballerina Butterfly all the more special.’
   The net proceeds from the auction will go to the ballet company.

   The tour kicked off on June 25 at Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens, Fla. Beyoncé wears three costumes especially designed for her by Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci.
   Beyoncé wears a black leather short jumpsuit, with the embroidered inscription ‘BBB 17’, with chunky zipper details and hand-embroidered bra and panties as her first Givenchy haute couture outfit.
   Her second outfit, ‘Single Ladies’, is a reinterpretation of her leotard, in black stretch tulle embroidered with paillettes, 3-D stones and crystals, and a fishnet-on-skin tulle centre part.
   Her third outfit, for the finalé with Jay Z, is a black vinyl and velvet bodysuit with a fishnet catsuit underneath, and a 5 m long American flag shirt-skirt in black and white taffetas with embroidered stars.
   She wears custom-made nappa and patent leather thigh-high boots with each design.

Leading US designer Zac Posen, whom Lucire first interviewed not long after he started in the business, has been appointed creative director for Brooks Brothers’ women’s collection and accessories.
   The company says that Posen will direct the design and merchant teams, and have input on brand development for its women’s label.
   ‘We are thrilled to have Zac join us as creative director of our women’s collection,’ said Claudio Del Vecchio, chairman and CEO of Brooks Brothers in a release. ‘He is one of the most talented and influential American designers working today.’ Del Vecchio pointed out that Posen understood that the brand needed to modernize its range.
   Posen said, ‘I am truly honored and excited to be embarking on this incredible opportunity to take the Brooks Brothers women’s brand into the future while respecting its deep, rich American heritage as an institutional company.’
   Posen’s first women’s collection will début in spring 2016.
   Currently, Posen’s labels include Zac Posen, ZAC Zac Posen and Z Spoke Zac Posen, covering clothing and accessories, with Truly Zac Posen his bridal label in association with David’s Bridal. His eyewear line, in partnership with Kenmark Optical, retails from September. He also judges Project Runway with Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia.
   It is expected that Posen will remain with his own labels while working with Brooks Brothers.
   Brooks Brothers is the US’s longest established apparel brand, and began selling womenswear in 1874. Presently, women’s fashion only represents 20 per cent of its sales.
   Thom Browne will continue to design the Black Fleece line for men and women.

Many Hopes, the charity dedicated to building homes and schools for children in Kenya—and creating sustainable local businesses to make themselves unnecessary in the long term—had its gala on Tuesday.
   Celebrities at the Discover Many Hopes NYC Annual Gala at Canoe Studios on West 26th Street included Jessica Stam, Jeremy Penn, AnnaLynne McCord, Krysta Rodriguez, Jon Batiste, DJ Zeke Thomas, and Alice Callahan Thompson and her husband W. Kyser Thompson.
   The celebrities are said to be big supporters of Many Hopes, and the amount raised exceeded the target, netting $400,877 for the charity.
   Actress Alice Callahan Thompson, who along with her husband chaired one of the auctions, noted, ‘We believe the problem of street children in coastal Kenya is also the solution. I have been involved with this unique organization that rescues and empowers children and teens in Mtwapa, Kenya since 2011.
   ‘My husband and I have travelled to Kenya twice to visit and serve our kiddos and look forward to returning this December. We have witnessed that no one cares more about fighting for justice than those who have suffered injustice. Our oldest girl Brendah is in her second term in law school in Nairobi, as she resolved seven years ago when Many Hopes fought for her rights, that she, too, would fight for the rights of others.’
   Batiste and Thomas provided the music for the evening. Penn had donated a painting of French actress Brigitte Bardot for the silent auction.

Kiwi artists exhibit in New York, while films on Raf Simons and YSL come to New Zealand

Lucire staff/15.22

Four New Zealand artists are exhibiting in New York from July 1 at Forty:67, at the Artifact Gallery at 84 Orchard Street in the lower east side of Manhattan.
   The exhibition, which comprises painting, photography and jewellery-making, features the work of Sarah Elsby, Nikki Clark, Aphra Ellen, and Jodi Clark. Elsby and Ellen are mother and daughter, and Nikki and Jodi Clark are sisters.
   The work examines the ideas behind identity, place, and culture, or: what does it mean to be a foreigner transplanted to an international centre such as New York City?
   Elsby uses watercolours on paper, exploring the tensions between biomorphic and architectural forms. Photographer Nikki Clark contrasts New York City with the tranquillity of the Whanganui River, near where she grew up, and the similarity of the power in both locations. Jodi Clark’s painting explores how symbols can transcend cultures and history, ‘arranged so they become abstracted from their original intent; taking on a new meaning and life while still triggering memories and nostalgia,’ she says. Ellen’s hand-crafted jewellery has what has been described as a playful approach, inspired by organic forms and odd shapes.
   The gallery is open from 12 to 6 p.m. daily.
   Meanwhile, two fashion films will be part of the New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF), taking place between July and September in Auckland, Wellington and other centres.
   The first, Frédéric Tcheng’s Dior and I (France, 2014), is a behind-the-scenes documentary, following Raf Simons as he creates his first collection for Christian Dior, taking over from John Galliano. It’s already on Lucire fashion editor Sopheak Seng’s must-see list as the festival takes place.
   Yves Saint Laurent, which has had a lot of coverage in Lucire already, is the second film. This is the Jalil Lespert film, which opened in January 2014 in France, and was authorized by Pierre Bergé. (The rival film was authorized by François Pinault.)
   Session dates are available online from nziff.co.nz: the Auckland ones are up now, with the Wellington schedule appearing on Friday, and other centres on July 4.
