H&M celebrates its Studio S/S20 collection with an event in Beverly Hills

The collection, designed for the modern, freedom-loving woman, whose style is as diverse as her travels, was brought to life in a house in Beverly Hills. The modern mid-century home has been redesigned using light and filters to reflect elements from the collection's saturated color palette that contrast with the natural surroundings of the hills. Guests, including Jourdan Dunn, Paloma Elsesser, Billie Lourd and Selah Marley, all dressed in H&M Studio, were invited to see the new collection, which was accompanied by an acrobatic performance followed by an acoustic inlay by Lykke Li.

The most important parts include the dress made of recycled polyester in bright pink, the limestone-colored, cropped jacket made of a viscose-linen blend with open cut edges and the trousers with wide legs; the crocheted cardigan made of cotton-nylon in coarse knit as well as the eye-catching ankle boots made of leather with platform sole. A color palette of bright pink and cobalt blue with accents of light green dominates against limestone and cream tones. The collection will be split into two units, with a midsummer offering of sporty swimwear and comfortable kaftans for the beach, which will be available from the end of May.

«I used to model for H&M as a teenager and shop in the H&M stores.
 Therefore I am particularly pleased to celebrate the new H&M Studio Collection in such a beautiful location in LA. I will certainly wear this look more often this summer, ”
says model Jourdan Dunn.

SEPHORA new campaign : The Unlimited Power of Beauty

Beauty has changed. It is no longer just on the catwalks and pages of magazines, but has slipped into the selfies of our girlfriends or influencers whom we believe to share the daily life, while the screen of our smartphone has become our bathroom mirror. bath. Everyone is talking about beauty, and in this particularly competitive sector, it was crucial for SEPHORA to speak again, and to reaffirm its status as a leader by giving its vision of beauty: The Unlimited Power of Beauty.
A beauty that is experienced as a playground where everyone has the power and the right to experience whatever they want. A beauty that is limitless because there are as many beauties as there are people in the world, and that the same person can explore multiple facets of it during the course of a day or a lifetime. Beauty that gives us the power to assert ourselves and to love ourselves: beauty is not a standard, a size or a filter, but a tool of power and confidence.
To illustrate this new positioning which gives beauty a decisive role in everyone's life, BETC has imagined with SEPHORA, a powerful campaign which is deliberately different from the previous ones. The campaign is both very universal in its cast, and very intimate in tone and imagery, so that everyone can see it and can see the full potential of their own beauty.
The film directed by Jonas Lindstroem, tells of a person’s authentic emotions in the face of their reflection over the course of their life, giving voice to moments of doubt as well as moments of strength. The intimacy and emotion of each act of beauty make them rites of passage, real moments of self-construction, at each stage of life. The cover of Kelsey Lu's iconic title "I'm not In Love" was chosen for its emotional power that resonates with everyone.
The print is a gallery of portraits captured by the eye of Nadine Ijewere, photographer.

With the start of the UEFA Champions League this year, Hublot is presenting a limited version of the Classic Fusion for fans of Europe's most prestigious club competition.
It's back! Following the winter break, the UEFA Champions League is going into the round of 16.

Ricardo Guadalupe

The Classic Fusion AeroFusion Chronograph UEFA Champions League features a 45mm case and a polished and satin-finished ceramic bezel in smoky midnight blue. It is rounded off by a bracelet made of blue rubber. The crown, the chronograph pushers and the characteristic screws on the bezel are made of polished titanium, which creates a noble contrast. One of the most striking features of the watch is its deep, three-dimensional dial. The graphic effect is due to the architectural shape of the blackened bridges of the skeletonized caliber HUB1155, which also serve as the basis for a dial made of transparent sapphire glass. On the dial, the applied hour indices and the two counters for the chronograph minutes and the current second seem to mysteriously hover over the underlying movement. The design with the star motif of the UEFA Champions League logo is rounded off under the counter for 3 seconds at 3 o'clock. The watch is powered by the Hublot HUB1155 automatic chronograph caliber, which offers a 42-hour power reserve. A blue ceramic case back with a sapphire crystal insert decorated with the UEFA Champions League logo completes the expressive look of the watch.

Just in time for Valentine's Day Zadig & Voltaire launches THIS LOVE! A story of love at first sight, a couple of lovers who adore one another and find themselves in “a Paris” that they know by heart. They are artists of the present. A Love story that sounds like a challenge. A touch, then another and a kiss in between doors. Freedom is shared heat and skin is a blank canvas on which they draw with the tip of their fingers, a lightning bolt to the heart. The fragrance of burning love, indelible and undisciplined.
The fragrance for HER is floral and gourmand, for those who always abandon themselves to love at first sight, imagined by Sidonie Lancesseur. A thrill of ginger slides on the skin, creating a tender fever with notes of violet and vanilla. The warm and voluptuous sandalwood embraces the body. A fragrance that seduces both those who wear it and those who breathe it in.
For HIM the fragranced has a woody aromatic perfume, created by Nathalie Lorson. A tightrope that vibrates between the warmth of a kiss and the chill of loving breath. First, a zest of bergamot that melts on the skin. The orange blossom exalts his sensuality and lets his heart be locked into a cloud of sandalwood. A sensual and addictive fragrance, hotly masculine.
The two bottles, born of the pressure of two bodies, create a sensual wave from deep blue to vinyl pink, reunited in each other’s arms to form a spectrum of heat and passion. Its design, inspired by contemporary art, a nod to Thierry Gillier, is both sleek and raw, with flashy and metallic colors that tattoo their love. 
This is Love! An electric love, the manifesto of an intense, free and sensual passion.

SISLEY Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid

Sisley presents its latest innovation: the Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid. All the benefits of the Black Rose are incorporated into this new formula specially developed for the delicate area around the eye.
This emulsion infuses the eyes with radiance and freshness to give a revived and smoothed eye contour area.
When  Sisley  first  launched  Black  Rose  Cream Mask in 2011, it became a cult product in record time. The Black Rose line was then enriched  in  2014  and  2017  with  Precious Face Oil and Skin Infusion Cream. Now in 2020 Sisley gives a new interpretation of the Black Rose this time focusing on the delicate eye contour.
The fluid combines three actions to give rejuvenated, fresh, bright and seemingly revitalised eyes.
Sisley has incorporated three smoothing active ingredients such as Aqueous Black Rose Extract, Padina Pavonica Extract and Vitamine E Acetate to leave eyes visibly smoother and seemingly younger.
In the meantime puffiness and dark circles are targeted by toning ingredients such as Red Vine Extract and Coffeine. Eyes are left refreshed and revitalised.
The active ingredients of Chlorella Extract and Red Vine Extract provide a glow-boosting action to illuminate and bring radiance to the eye. The formula is completed by Shea Oil to nourish and comfort and Black Rose Extract to soften. The texture is comfortable and melts into skin like a cream while remaining fresh and lightweight like a gel.  Microparts illuminate the eye contour to give a more rested, radiant and refreshed appeareance. Eyes are instantly brightened and smoothed while dark shadows are faded. The eye contour area is left intensely nourished, soft and velvety.
Sisley Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid is launching this March.

LALIQUE: Crystals novelties SS 2020

LALIQUE presents the new "Botanica" collection which takes us into a universe in which floral romance meets the strength of the minerals, creating an exciting contrast. Thanks to the talent of the experienced artists and the exceptional expertise of the glass masters, Lalique captures the decorative and symbolic power of peonies, lily of the valley, orchids and cherry blossoms.

In cooperation with McLaren, Lalique launched the “Essence of Speed” collection in 2018, which now shows three stylized creatures in clear crystal. The three creatures are each available in two different sizes and in a limited edition, which makes them exclusive collectibles. After the cheetah and falcon, the third design is now dedicated to the sailfish.

The “Tandrillah” collection is the result of the imagination of the French-Brazilian architect Elizabeth de Portzamparc and the expertise of Lalique. “Tandrillah” is the crystallization of a new adventure in the “Crystal Architecture” series, which has been collecting original designs by the greatest creative forces in architecture since 2014. The new "Tandrillah" collection is the result of many years of experiments by Elizabeth de Portzamparc in the fields of architecture, design and urban planning and is a feat of lightness.

For the first time, an abstract canvas in Lalique crystal takes shape. Six clear crystal panels, each enamelled, present themselves as a single painting on which the brush has left its imprint. The “Sun & Moon” collection, created jointly by Lou Zhenggang and Lalique, radiates the calm atmosphere of a landscape. In these extraordinary works of art, the Chinese artist honors the life cycle of the two heavenly bodies, the sun and the moon.

The new "Chapter 2" series in the "RockStone 20" series, which is a cooperation between the Israeli artist Arik Levy and Lalique, took its inspiration from the Aurora borealis (aurora) - the natural effect that is due to the magnetic atmosphere at the North Pole. The magnetic, mystical and spiritual power that is attributed to the crystal changes the color and the connection to our powerful nature and its extraordinary effects.

L'OCCITANE creates a fund for ecosystem restoration

The L'OCCITANE Group recently announced the creation of a fund to restore ecosystems badly affected during natural disasters, such as the Amazon and Australia, recently devastated by fires . Created to protect biodiversity for future generations, the L'OCCITANE fund aims to respond to climate emergencies on an ad hoc basis. This fund will be funded through voluntary donations from L'OCCITANE shareholders.
Sustainable development is at the heart of L'OCCITANE's vision. Since its creation, L'OCCITANE has been firmly committed to reducing its environmental footprint and devoting significant resources to preserving biodiversity, particularly in the Mediterranean and Burkina Faso. The sustainable industries department of L'OCCITANE and the L'OCCITANE Foundation, created in 2006, are involved in the protection of plant species, the development of long-term partnerships with producers based on sharing the value created, in place of short supply circuits, the sustainability of know-how, or even the development of local communities. The Group advocates a holistic approach with all stakeholders, also by engaging its employees and customers.
At the same time, L'OCCITANE wishes to be able to react punctually to crisis situations endangering the proper functioning of ecosystems. This is the vision behind the creation of an aid fund of € 400,000 dedicated to projects devoted to the restoration of disaster-stricken ecosystems. A donation of € 200,000 will help finance agroforestry programs aimed at restoring Australian landscapes. The projects will be chosen by the L'OCCITANE Foundation, jointly with the sustainable supply chain department of L'OCCITANE and its teams in Australia. Thus, L'OCCITANE is strengthening its commitment thanks to its global initiative to plant trees, in partnership with PUR Projet.

Reinold Geiger, CEO of L'OCCITANE Group, said: 
“We are shocked and saddened to see how devastating the fires that have recently hit several regions of the world have been for landscapes, endemic wildlife and communities. As responsible business leaders, we cannot sit idly by. We must do our part to help restore ecosystems for the benefit of future generations. "
