How I louvre to see you

March 28, 2008/5.10

While Samantha Potes is covering Toronto Fashion Week for Lucire (welcome back, Samantha!), we did receive a release about Kolor Shades from Canada. They’ve just had their opening party in Toronto and sent us some great images from their shoot.    They’re very youthful and apparently these are the latest styles in eyewear, though older […]

Wearing Dior, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy wins over English fashion media

March 26, 2008/21.36

The state visit of President Nicolas Sarkozy of France to the United Kingdom has started off on a positive note, if the fashion media there are any indication.    First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was dressed in a Christian Dior grey coat (that grey—the one the fashion house itself made famous) with matching beret, accessorized with a black […]

The three-pointed star goes Avantgarde

March 21, 2008/9.47

  The Mercedes-Benz C200K Avantgarde gets the Lucire road test treatment—rather than analysing horsepower and acceleration, we weigh up the style quotient. It passes—if you are looking for a car that expresses Germanic rationality with something special. It’s got a ?ght on its hands this year, with a revised BMW 3-series and a new Audi […]

Hands Up ’08 helping to stop human trafficking

March 16, 2008/21.49

I enjoy seeing fashion and good causes come together. Douglas Voon (of Voon, where his wife Sophie designs) is putting a lot of effort into spreading the word on Hands Up ’08, a celebration of fashion, music and dance with the proceeds going to helping stop human traf?cking in Malawi.    You can ?nd out more […]

The Vista Group comes to order

February 23, 2008/5.05

[Cross-posted] I had a great lunch (to which I was on time) with Wellington bloggers Jim Donovan and Mark Di Somma at Vista, which now seems to be a monthly gig, discussing business and branding. Funnily enough, the Trelise Cooper brand did come up (just blogged about it, guys), but we also talked about the […]

Treliske v. Trelise wouldn’t be easily won


[Cross-posted] If you read between the lines, you probably could detect I wasn’t terribly thrilled about the Trelise Cooper Ltd. v. Cooper and other case from 2005 to 2007. It was brand-damaging for Trelise Cooper, probably stressful for Tamsin Cooper, and at the end of the day, I had my doubts on whether the burden […]

February 21, 2008/13.10

Our friend Miguel has his copies of Twinpalms Lucire from the printer—and tells me that the magazines are looking beautiful.    As mentioned last month, Lucire launched in Thailand this week, in collaboration with Twinpalms Phuket. We had an amazingly smooth working relationship with the magazine’s art director and editor, Miguel Kirjon, at Asia Design […]

February 6, 2008/3.10

H&M has been collaborating with top labels such as Stella McCartney and Roberto Cavalli for a while, and now, Adidas has launched its co-branded line with Diesel. Last year, we checked out the Diesel fragrances, and we’ve covered the jeans for ages, so this does seem to be the brand’s period in the Zeitgeist.    […]
