Tomorrow, blogs might even drive print magazines

September 5, 2009/12.04

The ‘Insider’ section has now been facelifted for the first time, bringing it in line with the new pages on the Lucire website. It has also dawned on us that this blog celebrates its second anniversary.    Lucire was a late convert to blogging, even though I had been blogging away—on a very irregular basis—since […]

September 1, 2009/14.49

Renault has announced its Fluence saloon, which is meant to replace the Mégane Classic. However, if Korean readers are thinking it looks rather familiar, that’s because it is: the Fluence is, essentially, the second-generation Samsung SM3 with a new grille.    The slightly conventional styling down the back is mated to a Mégane 3-like grille […]

The Lucire news page remains


We have decided to keep the ‘News’ page here on the Lucire site, rather than integrate it with ‘Insider’. It turns out that some of you do use it to get news headlines from around the web, and we can understand that it is helpful: it’s a convenient way to have a glance at what’s […]

We thought these were a lovely touch for Christmas: Peace and Joy necklaces from Cerise UK on London’s Columbia Road. The inspiration came initially from children’s jewellery that Cerise’s designer, Vicky Davies, was commissioned to make. The pieces are hand-engraved and cut, and the two birds come together. The ‘Peace’ bird has stars on the […]
