LACOSTE GOES L!VE FOR SPRING SUMMER 2011 IN

21

IN MAGAZINE - SUMMER 2011

LACOSTE has officially christened its newest line LACOSTE L!VE just in time for the SS11 edition of Bread & Butter Berlin. The youngerminded, fashion-conscious crocodile first made its mark on the SS09 runway in New York, where it was dubbed RED! after the bright and bold colour of the exclamation point juxtaposed to the crocodile logo. LACOSTE L!VE keeps that signature ‘!’, which asserts its uniqueness, its difference and its identity. LACOSTE L!VE is very much a contemporary reinterpretation of the classic LACOSTE codes and crocodile DNA, destined for an audience who refuses to compromise on look, quality or cut. LACOSTE L!VE is about optimism and movement, a directional line focused on clothing and footwear that forges ahead while respecting its roots. LACOSTE L!VE also pays tribute to the impact and importance of cultural trends such as music on fashion.


The first LACOSTE L!VE collection for men under its freshly minted name is unveiled in Berlin on 7 July. The first LACOSTE L!VE women’s collection will debut for FW11. And to reinforce the segmentation from the brand’s Sport, Sportswear and Club collections, LACOSTE L!VE will see its first shop open its doors in Soho during the US Open and just before New York Fashion Week in September. A total of about 60 LACOSTE L!VE shops are planned, with Paris, London, Berlin and Zurich slated to open in the next few months.   For the LACOSTE L!VE SS11 clothing collection, the brand’s design team demonstrates their finesse with colour, using the same shades to two very different ends. The first theme uses primary colours with inspiration from optical art, recalling the work of Victor Vaserely or Daniel Buren with the coriander green ultra slim-fit polo with white striped concentric boxes radiating out around the crocodile logo or the navy blue crew-neck sweater with zig-zag white stripes. It’s New Wave, mathematical and very optical.

The second theme in the LACOSTE L!VE SS11 line features diluted pastel shades of the same primary colours found in the first theme. Polos and T-shirts with stripes that look like they were hand painted in watercolours. Sweaters and polos that appear to have been partially dipped in pastel dying vats round out the collection, which puts a fresh spin on the LACOSTE tradition of relaxed elegance. For footwear, two brand-new styles have been created for the LACOSTE L!VE collection. The first is Chute, a nautical deck-style shoe that has been re-worked for the summer season. A twisted rope for a lace keeps the feel fresh and contemporary while the herringbone canvas is a nod to the classic RenĂŠ Lacoste 1963 court shoe. The second style is Himos. In line with the LACOSTE L!VE philosophy, this design is a super-contemporary re-interpretation of an American penny loafer. The slim profile sole offers a relaxed edge, and the formal leather cut-out strap across the toe gives a smarter appeal. Combined with the pop primary colourways of yellow, blue, red and white, LACOSTE L!VE footwear offers the ultimate in trend-forward casual chic.

IN.FASHION RALPH LAUREN BLACK LABEL

SPRING SUMMER 2011

For Spring 2011, Ralph Lauren Black Label presents new interpretations of color and fabric, revealing the surprising sharpness of monochromatic dressing and the masculine appeal of luxe textures. Pale greys and blues are strikingly sleek in their simplicity. Injections of color bring energy to looks anchored in black. Silks, suedes and double-faced linen are effortlessly cool, while unique denim designs combine the tough and the tonal. A modern sculptural aesthetic meets a laidback desert vibe in the South Africa collection. Serape stripes, intricate beading and run-on stripes are bold and artful worn against black denim. Shantung silk shirts are fashioned in sleek electric colors, while roughed-out suede and textured linen shirts have a worldly appeal. Skinny sweaters with sculpted textures and flat-knit geometric patterns are modern and sophisticated. New pant silhouettes include black shantung cargos, motocross-detailed denim and parachute pants with a subtle drape.


HHH The White Denim collection introduces a fashion-forward edge in lighter shades of denim. Sun-bleached hues of blue are layered color-on-color or worn against white.Super-luxe suede shirts and pants and washed cashmere sweaters and knits take on the appearance of faded sky blue chambray. A skinny ripped-and-repaired jean in washed-out blue looks chic and timely when worn with a white linen blazer and crisp sport shirt. Featherweight fabrics have a renegade attitude in classically masculine silhouettes and shades of smoky grey. A classic trench and bomber jacket are designed in agate-colored parachute technical silk. Signature denim and lightweight suede roughwear are offered in faded grey. At the most brilliant point in the spectrum, pure white denim reinvents classic outerwear, including an asymmetrical motorcycle jacket. Black Label Tailored Clothing deepens its razor-sharp focus with sophisticated and ultramodern constructions of fabric and color. A double-breasted suit, dress shirt and tie are all worn in navy linen. The palest grey is worn from neck to hem or with optic white. Unconstructed suits in double-faced black linen are worn with black linen shirts and ties or with contrasting haberdashery in eyecatching shades of turquoise,coral and lime. Linen and poplin dress shirts and ultrafine jersey sweaters in blue and lavender create modern, luxurious style.

ETHICAL FASHION CAUSING A STIR IN THE MIDDLE EAST ZIAD GHANEM by Hesham Shawish

Recycled Works of Art Ziad Ghanem can be seen as a motivating figure to many young designers trying to break out into the high fashion scene the world over. His unique techniques and ethical methods of designing and creating new and original Haute Couture pieces have caught people’s imaginations and caused a storm in the fashion world. The deep rooted stereotypical image of ethical fashion using old paper bags and bin liners is out, and glamour is in. Dubbed the ‘Cult Couturier’ because of his alternative tastes and avant-garde style, Ziad tells me that “people don’t need that message anymore. I’m about making ethical fashion glamorous and beautiful; it’s not about being boring and stereotypical in environmental fashion anymore.” This distinctive style has been captured in his new autumn/ winter 2011 collection which was showcased at London Fashion Week on February 20th, and which will also be taken around the globe to his international clients. The over-arching theme for this season was Ziad’s inspiration from the horror video game “Silent Hill” and the work of painter John-Henry Fuseli.

Individual’s perceive others by their appearance and surroundings and naturally form contrasting opinions on the same situation. The same garment viewed in a dark, gothic context by one viewer will be interpreted as romantic and liberating by the next. Ziad’s ability to push the viewer’s preconceived ideas will once again prove to be one of the most talked about presentations of the season. Using traditional haute couture skills and techniques in fabric weaving in this collection, Ziad has been able to eliminate seams, create dramatic draping and work with an extreme bias cut. Sourcing vintage silk chiffon, duchess satin and Moroccan crepe from old couture mills and using their natural flow to fit the body and create new forms and shapes. Established as a ready-to-wear couturier for both men and women, Ziad sources luxury fabrics from organic fabric producers, rubber and dyes from South America to create his uber underground pieces and bespoke designs. His use of recycled clothes from vintage charity and consignment shops, and intricate assortments of fabrics are many of the environmentally conscious techniques that he has introduced to his work since the beginning, trying to prove that “green” ideas have a place in couture. Using scrap rubber from factories that can be re-melted and used in his designs as well following principles of environmentally friendly printing and ethical working conditions, Ziad tells me “it’s hard bringing ethics into fashion, with the costs of organic materials and dyes, as well as adhering to fair pay for workers bringing costs much higher than usual.” Aiden Connor, Ziad’s assistant, tells me that the old ways of producing haute couture pieces carried with them a lot of guilt. Fur, child labour and unfair pay haunt the fashion industry, however Ziad’s ethical methods take those practices away. He also tells me that the image of haute couture being an archaic, Parisian, classic-styled artistry has been tested by Ziad who instead produces uniquely glamorous pieces whilst at the same time remaining cool, modern and wearable. Alexis Knox, stylist and fashion editor of Notion and Drama magazines told me that “Ziad is inspired by his clients and they are inspired by him, they feed off each other. He has shown that couture can be fresh, young, and innovative whilst at the same time saving the world!” She also expressed that designers today needed to be more ethical about saving eachother, not just the environment, by being humane with workers with fair pay and reasonable hours, as well as providing couture pieces that do not use environmentally damaging methods such as fur, toxic dyes and wastage of materials, a point relevant to a time when the world is experiencing the biggest recession since the 1929.

IN MAGAZINE - SUMMER 2011


HHH The Middle East When I move on to talk about the fashion industry in the Middle East, he tells me that the region is “starting to take notice of recycled fabrics and ethical couture, especially by the young educated elite” who are often more aware of alternative and playful fashion tastes in a traditional minded environment when attitudes towards fashion are examined . Many young designers in the region have been observing Ziad’s designs, in a cut-throat profession where those breaking out in the industry are often trampled on by the long-standing fashion houses at the top. Young Lebanese designer, Charbel Zoe El-Khoury told me “I don’t think the new designers are being encouraged to succeed with the new alternative styles and methods. The Arab mentality goes for the classic style of dresses like designs by Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad etc. “This is what can be sold the most”, revealing how many top designers in the region traditionally opt for catering to the masses, instead of trying to come up with more imaginative and unique designs. What we often see is déjà vu. On the new alternative and vintage fashion trends sweeping the Middle East, he told me that younger generations are more open and accepting of these new and playful tastes in fashion. Other countries in the region such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have started to see changes in the way young people are approaching fashion and the region’s first ever vintage store which opened in Downtown Beirut in 2009 has not been able to keep up with the high demand of orders, symbolising the fast pace that fashion trends have been changing in the Middle East. Ziad’s achievements have drawn the attention of those in the industry who are looking to produce new creations whilst at the same time remaining ethical. He had the opportunity of representing Lebanon at the EcoChic Geneva fashion show and exhibition in January of this year, an event in collaboration with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). It looked to fashion designers to create a dramatic showpiece look out of sustainable textiles, with many of the designers turning to their cultural heritage and country’s myths and folklore for inspiration. Ziad has attracted a following who come to him from all over the world, from Japan and Hong Kong, the US and many Arab states, to buy one-of-a-kind pieces that will make them stand out in the crowd and which they know will be a distinctive custom-made creation. Among his fans include famous figures such as Lady Gaga, Orlando Bloom, Kelly Osbourne, as well as a long list of many other high profile actors, singers and performance artists. It is this exclusivity that has been Ziad’s asset in promoting himself.

第7 COLLECTION

RONALD ABDALA British-born designer Ronald Abdala’s name have been creating quite a buzz in the industry. He is exactly what you may call the bright kid with a philosophical fashion sense… something we have not been seeing much off lately. Reaching out from his native country Lebanon, Abdala have dressed many celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Jenna Dewan, Lucy Hale and Jayma Mays only with the most stylish outfits. Let us say, that we personally are glad to know that a designer went off their high horse and enjoys treating his clients like real celebs! It is very rare that you find one who would agree to modify any of their creations to fit the individual liking of their clienteles. Ronald speaks to us about his long awaited 第7 collection, the new Boutique he recently opened in Beirut and his fascinating new men’s line as well as the latest season’s IN choices.

IN MAGAZINE - SUMMER 2011


What does Ronald Abdala have to say about his journey into the fashion world? It hasn’t been easy! Emerging Designers worldwide, I think, would most likely agree that being the head of a company, or a head designer, is a huge undertaking with numerous challenges! Every season I find myself questioning my abilities as a fashion designer and worrying about how my audience is going to perceive my work, which in my opinion is a perfectly natural feeling in any art form presentation. In order to be a good designer, one can never be too sure of himself or herself. Designing collections becomes a constant battle against time: consumers nowadays want quick fashion. They want new designs in less time, which is a challenge for most young highend designers. Inspiration is not ever-present, while securing funds to continue working is a constant struggle. That being said, designing becomes a drug of sorts; an addiction that arises out of the personal gratification one gets from allowing your imagination to roam freely, emerging with new ideas and creations. I consciously try to disconnect myself from the “fashion world”. It isn’t a circle I feel I can relate to constantly. I do my work, and I showcase it in my way. I love what I do, which is important, but at the same time, I am well aware that there is always something new to absorb everywhere around me.

What are the colors which are IN for this Spring/Summer 2011 Season? For my Spring/ Summer collection, I wanted to work with both a monochromatic palette and color blocking. My color scheme was comprised of a bright electric blue, pomegranate red, and a rich purple. I also worked with a more subdued palette of black, white, grey, and blush.

What can you tell us about your 第7 collection and what do you think makes it different than the other 6 collections that you have perfectly-crafted? 第7 represents a full cycle. It is my seventh full collection. It’s the first collection in which I introduce a significant array of daywear. It is also the first time I am so daring with color. I wanted sexy clothing, but not vulgar. There is much more visible geometry in the items of the collection. It is my first real ready-to-wear collection, per sec.

Who was your muse and inspiration for this collection? The collections’ silhouette is very girly, very Lolita, but it was heavily influenced by my love of Japanese culture. From Geisha girls, to Harajuku Girls, to Cherry Blossom trees, and Kimonos, the look isn’t obvious, but it is there if you look.

Tell us more about the Megadonna Doll that you have designed? About six months ago, a local magazine hosted an event for the mega foo doll, which is a white, blank doll with very funny conic ears! They handed out the toy to a few local designers and artists and asked if we could recreate their look, with the intent of exposing the doll in their offices. I’ve been obsessed with Madonna for as long as I can remember, and could think of no one better suited to represent fashion as one of the most influential fashion icons to exist. Thus was born Megadonna!

How do you describe the woman in Ronald Abdala’s eyes?

IN

Rock-Chic! She is retro yet modern. She can easily go from being completely grunge to utterly ravishing! She never goes by un-noticed, but never puts too much effort into her look either. The woman in my eyes is by no means a fashionista! She doesn’t go by trends or by what’s in. She is driven by her own beat and by her gut instinct!

You are an ESMOD, BEYROUTH graduate, what did this title add to you? ESMOD is often criticized as being a very technical fashion school. I remember hearing someone once say that I would never need to know how to sew or cut patterns since I would be only designing the product. Had I not attended ESMOD I don’t think I would have acquired enough knowledge of cut. I am able to find quick solutions to sewing problems. I know how to make patterns. It is a valuable asset I have. Obviously, school alone is not enough for one to launch their own line. I wouldn’t know half the things I know now were it not for the work experience I’ve had, the specialized studies I took at Central Saint Martins, and of course the time I spent working with Maison Rabih Kayrouz. Experience is the key to success, and as such, designers should not be too rushed to start their own line or brand.

Which International designer do you feel closest to, and did he/she leave an impression on Ronald Abdala’s fashion line? I don’t think that I can limit my admiration to just one designer. I often compare my work to Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaia, Rolland Mouret and Albert Elbaz. They have all inspired my vision on fashion, and how I approach my work today. I am constantly in awe of what they come up with. After the passing of McQueen, I do however feel that the line was affected by the nomination of Sarah Burton as his successor. Something is still missing, but I think she will figure it out and bring it back!

You recently opened your first Boutique in Beirut, are you in the process of opening a new one perhaps in another country? We’ve been open for three weeks now, so at present, one boutique is all I think I can handle! But eventually, yes of course I would like to open in other cities around the world! Who wouldn’t want to be an international line?

We are in the summer, which means wedding Season, what does Ronald’s bride look like? She has the elegance and the demeanor of old Hollywood. My wedding dresses are structured, but very dreamy. My inspiration for wedding dresses can best be described as a modern interpretation of old Hollywood. I don’t like to over do embroidery embellishments. I work more on the cut of the dress and the overlaying of fabrics.

Can we see you designing your very men’s line anytime soon? I am working on a men’s dress shirt line. It’s an idea I’ve had for a while, and hopefully it will come to fruition sooner than later! Why men’s shirts? I find that there is a gap in the market for designer men’s shirts. I can never find what I feel like wearing, and if I do the prices are outrageous! So the goal is to create designer shirts at more affordable prices.

Azature, the brand name originally started when the greatgrandfather opened the family’s first jewelry store in Beirut, Lebanon before migrating to Yerevan, Armenia in the early 1900s. Later on, the grandfather founded a prominently elite jewelry business under the family name where Azature took full control years after. The talented designer who also likes to be nicknamed A.Z. studied at the leading design school, Parsons and graduated with a Master’s degree in fashion designing. The first prize that he determinedly won, was in 2005, a Parsons/Phat Farm design competition, judged by Project Runway’s Tim Gunn and Russell Simmons. His first debut launch was in the fall of 2007 with seven intricately handmade necklaces, charms and rings in a luxurious new metal made by combining platinum and silver and finishing it off by pairing it with enamel, onyx, and black diamond. The young artist has worked alongside big names in the fashion world that would simply leave us oohing and awwing like the legend Alexander McQueen, the house of Dior, BCBG, Richard Tyler, and the amazing stylist Andrea Lieberman. Azature being a powerful name in the industry never seems to stop producing everything mysterious, extravagant and twisted with a rare edge. We are anxiously and crazily waiting for the Black Glove Tour to end, so we can grab the jewels which you will be able to find in Harvey Nichols, Saudi Arabia starting this coming October. So bring out your wallets now because the cosmic collection won’t be waiting for long!

IN.FASHION The Traverso Collection

Inspired by the Architecture of Great Bridges of the World Tumi, the premium lifestyle, accessories and travel brand premiers its first line of sunglasses in spring 2011. The Traverso Collection features 13 innovative sunglass designs engineered to deliver style and performance. The Traverso collection, Italian for “to cross,” takes inspiration from iconic bridges around the world – from the Akinada in Japan to the Tobin in the US. “With this collection, Tumi extends our diverse portfolio of premium lifestyle offerings, bringing its customers the very best in premium eyewear design,” says Tumi CEO Jerome Griffith. “As a lifestyle brand, eyewear is a natural extension for Tumi. Utilizing technically engineered materials and skilled designs each style presents a harmonious balance of form and function. The eyewear collection speaks to the brand’s DNA and is a continuation of Tumi’s philosophy of design innovation.” All of the sunglasses in the collection are engineered for performance, fit and function, employing the latest technology and materials. Renowned lens manufacturer Carl Zeiss developed an exclusive Tumi ZR3™ CR-39 Polarized lens that offers superior optical and visual performance while delivering outstanding polarizing efficiency. Tumi ZR3™ is an exclusive, transparent lens coating created by Zeiss that allows dirt, water, oil and dust to slip off the surface of the lens, reinforcing Tumi’s commitment to infusing the highest level of quality into all of its products. Traverso frames are constructed for strength and flexibility, using beta titanium, featherweight aluminum, handmade acetate and non-corrosive stainless steel. Hand-wrapped leather treatments, special acid- and laser- etching techniques, and unique injected rubber temple tips all evoke classic Tumi style. The Collection will launch spring 2011 and be available in all Tumi stores worldwide.

The Traverso Collection includes: The Akinada. Named for the suspension bridge in Hiroshima, Japan, these sunglasses convey the look and feel of a man constantly in motion. The ultra-light, one-piece molded aluminum frame has an adjustable nosepiece. The temples feature a rubber co-injected tip modeled on the shape of a Tumi stylized zipper-pull. The matte finish is available in Dark Gun Metal with a Black tip or Raw Aluminum with a Black or Matching aluminum rubber tip.

The Brooklyn. Like the beloved bridge spanning the East River in New York City, this style communicates durability and practicality. The stainless steel frame is treated with a special acid-etching technique to create the pattern and texture of the iconic Tumi ballistic nylon. The style also features “rings of Saturn” temple tips: cast metal with two rubber rings for style and grip, inspired by the design of a Tumi zipper pull. Available in Black, Gunmetal, Chocolate Brown and Red.

The Capilano. As evocative as the bridge in Vancouver, British Columbia, this lightweight navigator in stainless steel will appeal to the sophisticated traveler. Taking inspiration from iconic Tumi premium designs, it has an allover satin finish and a stylish pattern acid-etched on the temples surrounding the logo. The temple tips have leather inserts, reminiscent of Tumi zipper-pulls. In Black (Satin) or Brushed Silver.

The Coronado. Like the well-traveled bridge in Southern California that connects San Diego to Coronado Island, these sunglasses represent design excellence. The handmade, acetate front is attached to smoothly contoured acetate temples; the bottom half of the temple is hand-wrapped in finely textured leather. The temple features an imbedded T logo. A unisex style in Black, Brown Horn or Smoke Horn.

IN MAGAZINE - SUMMER 2011


The Esplanade. Named for the bridge that straddles the Singapore River, this modified aviator frame is created from titanium block for a comfortable and modern masculine look. Carbon fiber temples mimic Tumi’s authentic Ballistic nylon fabric; co-injected temple tips modeled on the shape of the Vapor collection zipper-pull finish the look. In Matte Black with Black temple, Chocolate Brown with Black temple/Brown tip or Gunmetal.

The Kento. Inspired by the bridge across the Ohio River that connects Ohio and Kentucky, this frame is created from titanium for flexibility and a lightweight feel. Streamlined betatitanium temples have the eye-catching Tumi logo with rubber co-injected temple tip modeled on the shape of the Vapor collection zipper-pull. In Matte Black or Gunmetal.

The Millau. Like the bridge that crosses the Valley of the River Tarn in Southern France, this handmade acetate frame has clean lines and timeless style. The Tumi logo is laser-etched on the metal hinge and the temples feature “rings of Saturn” temple tips. In Black, Smoke Horn and Olive Horn.

The Minami. Named for the bridge that crosses the Seto Inland Sea in Japan, this classic unisex shape features sophisticated temple detail created from handmade acetate and inspired by Tumi’s premium designs. The temples are hand-wrapped in rich-colored Tumi leather, revealing an acetate stripe leading to the temple tips – a design feature reminiscent of Tumi’s zipper-pulls. The Tumi logo is discreetly laser-etched on the hinge. In Black Tortoise and Ruby Horn.

The Montrose. Like its namesake, which straddles the Grand River in Ontario, Canada, the Montrose is a classic shape for a chameleon of looks. The titanium front is attached to an injected temple with a visible carbon-fiber core for strength and flexibility. The rubber co-injected temple tips are modeled on the shape of a stylized Tumi collection zipper-pull. In Black (Satin) with Black temple/Black tip, Brushed Silver with Black temple/Grey tip and Chocolate Brown (Satin) with Brown temple/ Brown tip.

The Newport. Inspired by the bridge crossing Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island, this aviator style with a titanium rim front is an essential for any world traveler. The only visible logo is a single T on the block metal end ear pieces. Wrapped in Tumi’s premium leather, the temples feature “rings of Saturn” temple tips. In Black with Black Leather, Brushed Silver with Black Leather and Gold (Satin) with Brown Leather.

The Severn. Evocative of the river connecting South Gloucestershire and South Wales, the Severn is a unisex frame with a hand-polished acetate front. The understated stainless steel temple has subtle, laser-engraved ballistic patterns on the sides. The acetate temple tips, which coordinate with the front, have leather inserts reminiscent of Tumi zipper-pulls. In Black, Tortoise and Ruby Horn.

The Sydney. Named for the highly recognizable bridge in Australia, this smaller, sleeker aviator with a titanium rim front is a must-have for any world traveler. A single “T” on the temples offers a subtle reference of the Tumi logo. Wrapped in Tumi’s premium leather, the temples feature “rings of Saturn” temple tips. In Brushed Silver with Black Leather and Gold (Satin) Brown Leather.

The Tobin. Inspired by this Boston bridge, the largest in New England, the Tobin’s crisp rectangle shape is crafted almost entirely from stainless steel. It features a raised stylized T logo on the temple and “rings of Saturn” temple tips. In Black (Satin), Brushed Silver and Chocolate Brown.

DEAN & DAN CATEN’S DEBUT AT THE LIFE BALL IN VIENNA IN

IN Magazine had the chance to have an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with Dsquared, the Canadian twin designers who have managed to rock the fashion world to its core. The Les enfants terribles of the international fashion industry spoke of their participation in the 2011 Life Ball which took place on May 24 at the City Hall Square in Vienna. Dean and Dan think that it is a celebration of life and hope and describe how honored they are to be able to participate in helping to raise funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS while telling us how important this issue is to them. Their spectacular fashion show which marked the 19th edition of this unquestionable charitable cause featured celebrities and supermodels that came from all over the world to walk down the runway in 85 unique looks from Dsquared which were inspired from this year’s air element and motto “Spread the Wings of Tolerance.” The DSQUARED brothers worked on two projects to celebrate this year’s collaboration with The Life Ball, where they custom-made 100 pairs of sneakers sporting the red AIDS ribbon which are now sold exclusively on their website for £350, $350 or 350. Donating the proceeds entirely to the CHAI’s Pediatric Program which is a research study aiming to increase and develop cures for children that are HIV positive, a MINI Cooper S was custom designed by Dean and Dan and auctioned on behalf of the organization . Dean and Dan tell us all about it and much more in this fashionably inspiring and soul-searching interview.

2011 is a great year for DSQUARED2, where you are one of the main sponsors of the 2011 Life Ball in Vienna, what motivated you to take part in one of the biggest charity events to support HIV/ AIDS-relief organizations? The Life Ball organization approached us some years ago. This year it was the right time to attend. It was in our dreams to do the Life Ball. It’s an extraordinary event. The entire city embrace the cause, everyone actively participate at the event. Supporting the HIV/AIDS relief organization is a concrete involvement into the cause

brands. They are effortless promoters of styles and trends. Everybody wants to look like them and are willing to buy exactly what hey wear to feel even just a tiny bit like them.

You have recently dressed Canadian singer Michael Bublé on his wedding day, how was the experience and why did you choose that particular look for him? He is a friend of us. We had the chance to dress him also during the Opening and Closing Ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver and now for his wedding. We chose for him a style from our new Dsquared Classic Capsule Collection.

Continuing with The Quadrennial Cycle, the theme of the Life Ball this year is dedicated to the element air entitled “Spread the Wings of Tolerance!” How will it affect DSQAURED2’S apparel line in the Fashion extravaganza? It’s going to be a Hell’s Angels meets military meets birds and flight. It’s coming out really cool but we cannot reveal too much. It has to be a surprise.

Every year, the Crystal of Hope award which is worth 100,000 EU is donated by Swarovski for the best work in helping for HIV/AIDS relief and awareness; will we be seeing any cooperation between DSQUARED2 and Swarovski in a product created to help and promote the cause?

According to global real estate adviser CB Richard Ellis, Dubai is now on the same level as London in being one of the most popular retail cities in the world, topping New York, Paris and Hong Kong, what do you think of that? Dubai is without a doubt one of the most important business cities in the world. We recently opened a store there and we went there for the official opening and we loved the city vibe. It is very laidback and fun as much as active and business oriented.

What do you think of the Middle Eastern woman and how would you guys describe her fashion sense and style? We see them as Chic & Opulent and of course with the love to take care of themselves, they are always impeccable!

Will we be seeing the famous Duo in Dubai anytime soon?

Never say never….we are very sensitive to HIV awareness and keen on using our visibility to help raise funds for the research.

It’s in our project to come back soon

Who and what inspired your fashion line for the Fall/Winter 2011-2012?

Who should we expect to see from the stars walking down the red ribbon runway wearing DSQUARED2?

The collection was inspired by “Cold Mountain”, the 2003 blockbuster film directed by Anthony Minghella, starring Nicole Kidman. It pays tribute to the pioneers who colonized the territory of the United States of America during the 18th century. In a landscape often unpredictable and cold they crossed the country with their bull carriages, braving the snowy inhospitable mountains.

We are still working on that so we prefer to keep it confidential also not to spoil the surprise and the impact on the audience. What we can say is that there will be International super models, a few celebrities and athletes.

What message would you like to send to all the people in the world by participating in the Life Ball event?

How can you describe it for us? The collection is very wintery, very dark. It’s all about wearing layers upon layers of clothing in order to ward of the staggering cold. The silhouette is wide and comfortable to ease movement. The materials are felts, washed leathers and shearling outerwear mixed with knitted details.

We just want to give our personal contribution to the cause. Our goal is to help raising money to finance the research against AIDS.

After your collaboration with many artists like Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, and Bill Kaulitz, what surprises should we expect at the Fashion Show?

What DSQUARED2 projects should we look out for?

Our fashion show will be fun, spectacular and a little outrageous…. just wait and see.

Retail, Retail, retail. We’ve just opened two stores in China, Beijing and Shanghai and 15 more will be opened within 2015. While a flagship store will be opened in Paris next September.

We always see DSQAURED2 teaming up with icons from the Music Industry, what is the reason behind that attraction?

What does the title “Les enfants terribles of the international fashion industry,” mean to you?

We love music and good music helps us in our creative process. Celebrities are undoubtedly the best spokespeople for fashion

Maybe it is referred to our lively, fun and energetic approach to fashion.

SEASON IN SESSION For this Spring/Summer 2011 we want to make shopping as easy and simple as possible on you. All you need to do on your next shopping spree is to take your copy of IN Magazine and make it your checklist for the hottest fashion trends this season. So our beloved guys and gals… picture the trends and pick the style that will soothe your spring and sizzle your summer!

MEN’S COLLECTION Alexander McQueen Men’s collection Pomp and Circumstance The colors: Black, white, neutral tones with red highlights and flashes of gold or prints of an orange and red kimono. The trend: being true to the type of Englishness, the collection comes as a combination of the aristocratic and military tradition of savile row with more gutsy elements of street style and work wear. The style: you will see short trench coat with matching military-style leggings; sharp mod suits; fisherman’s guernsey sweater and baggy shapeless work trousers. Hint: this is the first collection under the artistic direction of Sarah Burton, but she keeps McQueen’s vision alive by using elements that have become associated with the English house of fashion like the use of photographic prints, the skull design and the cut paste of fabrics and patterns.

Bottega Veneta Men’s Collection The colors: the palette is broad holding various shades ranging from deep, rich shades of celeste blue, vermilion red, camp green, black and white. Then there is the lighter, tonal gradations of carmine, turf, and green absinthe that interweave through the clothes along with the soft woody shades of brown and beige. The trend: the collection continues to balance the space in a man’s closet between the casual and formal wear. The collection is breezy but focused, balanced between the technical rigor of athletic garb and the refined technique of classically tailored men’s clothing. The style: the silhouette is boxy and fluid featuring cropped jackets and full pleated pants that narrow at the ankle or ones that are fulllength and roomy to the hem. To show the gentler side of the tailoring, shirt jackets are beautifully constructed and are as soft as a t-shirt. You will also notice that there are tiny hound’s tooth checks, a micro-printed Prince of Wales plaid, and quiet stripes.

IN MAGAZINE - SUMMER 2011


Bottega Veneta Men’s Collection

Hint: the shoes and the bags from this season seek the comfort of you, the Bottega Veneta lover! Shoes designed for easy movement with the deck shoe inspired boots of canvas and leather; sandals with wide straps of sturdy blackened leather. We see the bags which are also made from darkened leather that’s creased and grainy and hold new expandable styles with zippers that allow it to expand from regular size to extra-large.

Dolce & Gabanna Men’s Collection Sicilian Sensuality The colors: the hues have the faded away effect hinting the long exposure in the sun; while the white and black mixes with the sandy color of the beach and the beige colour of the tangle of peasants’ baskets. The trend: the design criteria behind the whole collection revolves around the more relaxed and sensual Italian kind of elegance. It is all about longing to press the pause button on the hectic work lifestyle and for relaxing and enjoying the concept of “me time” by spending it comfortably. The style: Shirts made from poplin and washed muslin cotton, sandblasted denim, sweaters in jute or the intertwined jute and leather, knitwear swimsuits, and the casual extra light silk sweaters. As for the complementing accessories, you will enjoy wearing the Sicilian style leather sandals whether made from string or leather and the interwoven leather bags worn by Sicilian fishermen. Hint: the inspiration comes out from both the traditional and classical summertime tailoring used by Southern Italy’s farmers and the famous Italian comedy drama film “Vitelloni” directed in the year 1953 by Federico Fellini.

Gucci Men’s Collection The colors: the color palette strokes from shades of dark blue to earth and gray tones, light sieved natural hues to the peaks of the python and cowhide textures which portrays a fresh reddish allure obtained by the artful treatments. The trend: what distinguishes this collection from any other is the fine detailing, craftsmanship and the creative references to a timeless Gucci heritage which takes on an easy sartorial elegance infused by an urban spirit with the eclectic crossover flair of a modern adventurer. The style: you can depend on the Sharp formal suits in faux-denim silk, doublebreasted aviator jackets, peacoats and pantsuits worn over low neck T-shirts in ultra-light silk, cardigans with python insert edging, slim line pants and a genuine hand-washed and stained calf biker jacket with graphic tattoo cotton embroidery. Accessories like crumpled silk scarves, necklaces with horn or coral pendants, bracelets in silver-plated Moroccan mesh and with Gucci horsebit and nail symbols. Hint: the “gypsy deluxe” Gucci man is one with an impeccable, elegant, eccentric and freespirited style. He aims for a bohemian look which reminds us of impromptu snapshots of personalities like Paul Getty III, a central figure of the international jet set and night life in Marrakech, and an icon of a distinctly individual attitude who found the perfect balance between formal sophistication and casual nonchalance.

Lacoste Men’s Collection Modern Minimal Classics The colors: in the collection we see the black and white shades moving onto contrasting lively colors and a warm sunny palette of tobacco brown, blood red and mercury orange. The trend: the inspiration from the architectural, graphical and geometrical patterns of bold lines of Bauhaus and specifically the early modernist Villa Noailles designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens and the classical theme of Lacoste. The style: demonstrating a witty side with jackets sans collars that actually have a trompe l’oeil collar and lapel print. We see a combination of street and sport with a must-have piece for men this season is the pleated trousers featuring ribbed ankles adapted from tracksuits. Hint: in the words of creative director Christophe Lemaire, his final show is a mixture between sporty and chic, easy and playful. After 10 years, we could see that Lemaire showcases the relaxed elegance for which Lacoste is renowned.

WOMEN’S COLLECTIONS Alberta Ferretti Women’s collection

The colors: we can’t give you exact colors for the Alberta Ferretti’s Spring Summer 2011 collection embodied in the flowerprinted chiffon, warm shades, macramé lace and light materials that embrace the ultra-feminine essence. The trend: the trend this season is concentrated on the elegant, modern and romantic female look. As a charming Ferretti woman, you embrace the free laid-back spirit and the natural appearance. The style: you would want to go with the floral printed peasant tops and lengthy dresses, long hippie chiffon skirts, crochet miniskirts and hand -made sweaters, shorts and linen trench coats. Shirts and light skirts which show lace bras and shorts underneath. To complement these pieces of art, the ultra-flat sandals and straw hats complete the look. Hint: Only four words can do the collection justice, the need to “reinvent femininity” with the focus on the “bohemian style” of clothing that will leave your summer at ease.

Alexander McQueen Women’s Collection The colors: we can see that Sarah Burton’s choice of colors were mostly blonde, gold, black and ivory. The trend: the collection is the definition of both the bohemian and the free in spirit attitude. What Burton wanted to show was how the raw power of nature rejects the control of the technologically advanced environment. The handworked, embroidered pieces and the patchwork elements all highlight the handcrafted essence as if leaving nature to take its course. The style: to die for cropped and narrow jackets, tailcoats worn with an ankle-length low-rise trouser; ultra-light gowns silks. We can see an exaggerated hip that idealizes the feminine silhouette. The garments are made from washed duchesse satin, leather and layers of silk to work side-by-side with the square toed hobnail boots with molded soles, hand carved Iris heels which are varnished in black and gold. Hint: who wouldn’t want to be dressed by the woman who designed the future Queen of England and currently the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine’s wedding dress!

IN MAGAZINE - SUMMER 2011


Bottega Veneta Women’s Collection The colors: The palette, neutral and cool, runs from light to dark in hues of milk and cream, hay, oak, shades of titanium, and blue-black. The trend: the collection portrays the ease, informality, and unobtrusive sophistication and how we see that the silhouette narrowing with movement to reflect the line and body’s motion. The style: You will see rendered jackets as supple as cardigans and gracefully loose pants. The presence of unconventional pairings of wovens and skins prove the great deal of craftsmanship of the collection. Informal-cross-body bags, shoulder bags, and top-handled bags are made of leather, flat sandals and high skinny heels. Not to forget the art of cameo-carving where these lava stone cameos are darker and less common than those made from shell and are set in blackened sterling silver. Hint: The whole concept of the collection is built around one idea which is being at ease. The sole purpose that creative director Tomas Maier wanted to show was a combination of both the casual and the ultra-sophisticated, while presenting that each piece as a marvel of technique and a triumph of tradition.

Emilio Pucci Women’s Collection The colors: We see blues and whites of Greek Cycladic architecture, natural tans like saffron, caramels, and browns and then there are the blacks with hints of flesh and pink. The trend: the core of the collection is the wardrobe of a traveler and the island life that a true Pucci girl enjoys. The lively hues combined with the superb Italian craftsmanship detailing with a mixture of a rock attitude. The style: in the collection you will find floor grazing dresses, high split skirts, fishermen’s sweaters, Jane Birkin style crochet dresses, Midi hippy coats, slouchy bias-cut flare trousers, exceptional tunics and leg-bearing toile shorts worn with hammered gold belts. Then we see how the layered schoolboy blazers in vibrant colours are worn over washed and aged ruffles and lace inserts. The clothing is set off with a thigh high open toe suede boots or ultralux gold heeled Greek sandals in oiled vachetta leather. Hint: Peter Dundas, the creative director of Pucci dedicates the collection to the voyager of the Florentine Maison and sees the Pucci woman as the one who will spend her summer as causal and as carefree as she can and simply enjoy it!

Emporio Armani Women’s Collection Fancy Girl The colors: check out the mineral shades, fresh and glittering. Dawn grey, quartz grey, sandy beige, shimmers of green, a touch of black and the radiant watermelon red of summer. The trend: Giorgio Armani’s collection gives a fresh sense of vivacity and allows us to see a fusion that never fails to achieve a tailor made polished effect for a fancy girl who enjoys the quality of wit and fun, while being casual and free from any bond. The style: the usual amazing vision for jackets that do resemble gauze foulards, leggings combined with skirts in stretch tulle to add flair to a woman’s figure, rubberised raffia tailcoats which give a sporting slant, and semi-flared evening dresses which are designed with a straight neckline and ultra-slim shoulder straps. Let us not forget the informal trousers and clear cut jackets with well-defined shoulders. Hint: You will fall in love with the combinations of eclectic accessories and decorative necklaces that glamour up the clothes and are made from materials that have an ethnic origin to create the wood effect, facet cut horn effect, and the plaited twine effect

Gucci Women’s Collection Sophisticated Allure The colors: the vivid color blocking brought to life in turquoise, orange and hydrangea purple, iris blue, antique pink and Indian Jade alongside the sensual desert allure with the nude effects and the rocker black for a new shade of black paired with brown leather. The trend: Gucci’s spring/summer 2011 collection envisions a new femininity all for the alluring, sophisticated, intellectual and confident woman. The Gucci girl loves to provoke with smart irony, playing with strong colours and precious materials, distinguishing herself with her modern Amazon attitude. The style: the flowing masculine jackets and tuxedos, fitted riding jackets and jackets for desert Amazons with bronze and ethnic embroidery on it.. Then there is the stylish high-waisted tulip skirts, harem pants along with bomber jackets that have harnessed straps, chains and golden rings. The suede crochet tops, fringes on blousons and the draping on pencil skirts. Horse-riding pants couldn’t get any sexier with the flesh-colored python. Hint: Accessories that vary between the old and the new have without doubt affected the folkloric touch of the overall look. The stitching technique on the mini shoulder bags with tassels, the soft clutches, the golden snakeskin belts and the basket weaving for oversized bags. Add to these fascinating items the new Snaffle Bit Bag with a snap-style closure, a new darker handle on the Bamboo bag, the oversized gold Berber-style bracelets, chokers and bamboo bracelets. But what you should be looking out for is the Gucci 1921, a new watch with its quadrant wrapped in crocodile!

Lacoste Women’s collection The colors: The Modern Minimal Classics collection teams up black and white hues with a blast of lively colors and a warm sunny palette of tobacco brown, blood red and mercury orange. The trend: the inspiration of the women’s clothing line also comes from the architectural, graphical and geometrical patterns of bold lines of Bauhaus and the classical theme of Lacoste. The style: Christophe Lemaire offers the ladies fresh volumes by either enlarging either the tops or bottoms with pieces such as kimono sleeve blouses with deep V-necks or tunics knitted in an oversized zoom-in piqué pattern. He also designed sleeveless cotton polo worn over short shorts in punctured suede which reminds us that sporty can still be sexy! Hint: the bathing-suit cover-ups charm us in that same cotton netting and perforated suede that is so soft in the burning heat.

Jean Paul Gaultier Women’s Collection The colors: we could see flashes or full color blocks of red, blue green shades, pale pink and black. The trend: the romantic rock’ n ‘roll is a definite pointer towards character and personality in the views of Gaultier, who for this season chose to embrace the beauty inside over the outer look. The style: Denim mixed with black lace, pleated harem pants with short jackets and chunky boots. We then spot slimline pants that tug on the body along with jeans jackets with red or white squares striking on both sides. The chiffon dresses with chains and flowers stitched on and the adorned silk trench coat, and let us not forget the fish-net tights, and Jean Paul Gaultier’s signature powder-pink corset. Hint: the pleats from Mr. Gaultier’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection can be worn by any size, and adapt to different body shapes. He said that beauty should not be stereotyped and be in just one form, but what should count is the personality ….way to go J.P!

Yves Saint Laurent Women’s Collection A new Tribe The colors: different colors inserted into dimensional ruffles, inky indigo, and noir crepe de soir The trend: A New Tribe reviews and deeply examines the signs and symbols in which individuals organise and identify their bodies and themselves within the present visual culture. The style: the collection shows the iconographic jumpsuit claiming its origin. Pilati portrays the thumb-printed mousseline, the trace of a personality, and the power of a signature. We see Maribou feather embroideries, sculptural cotton jacquards and studded cotton piques, along with the flair of the foreign. While for the evening wear it gives the impression of liquid in inky indigo and noir crepe de soir. Hint: Stefano Pilati speaks with the loud silence of his garments, a vocabulary evercentered around the inexorable chic of Yves Saint Laurent. The resulting aesthetic gestures that are seen as anthropological evidence prove that a new tribe of modern women is a new tribe in fashion.

BANANA REPUBLIC A survey of the season’s new neutrals starts with a range of airy whites. Evolving like light and shadow at midday, the subdued gradient sweeps from warm ivory to cool ecru, and on into a handful of quiet prints. Silhouettes are equally as relaxed: drop-waist dresses, breezy maxi skirts and liquid-like sheaths form her indispensible wardrobe while draw-string linen pants, and tailored knits round out his. The subtle washes of color crest and break into a series of oceanic hues from watery blue to slate grays, where authentic textures pervade. Slub cotton leggings are topped off with a denim military blazer and boxy parachute blouses fit with trim tulip skirts, creating a clever sense of whimsy.

Menswear echoes this lighthearted exchange as chambray oxfords loosen up patch-pocket safari jackets while streamlined exteriors in salty gray hues add polish to heather sweatshirts. Utilitarian classics—each as easy to wear as it is to build upon—provide the perfect foundation for a leisurely tour through summer’s lush rainforest prints and exotic patterns. Fresh combinations of texture and proportion are explored with a sense of romantic wanderlust: a batik mid-skirt warms up a short trench dress, cargo pants become sophisticated when rendered in liquid-like tencel, while floral blooms put a distinctly feminine spin on tailored safari jackets. And with a wedge heel and sculptural straps, the neutral Belmont heel is well suited for any excursion. IN

Likewise, his adventurous separates—such as the slim cargo pant, patch-pocket shirts, walking shorts —make transitions easy to navigate. A palette of muted spice tones acts as the harmonious underpinning to the contemporary Continental essentials including madras shirting, inviting Henley knits and heritage army jackets in cool khaki or olive drab—even a witty flash of paisley. The journey continues through floribunda territory as graceful bloom-covered dresses, ranging from dainty hand-drawn florals to exuberant watercolors, add the final punctuation to a season of artful statements. Distinctive embellishments culled along the way—market scarves, supple leather totes, burnished pendants—recall the treasured mementos from a traveler’s diary.


CÉLINE Céline trades in a dark and powerful autumn for a collection of a more quieter sort with relaxed silhouettes and a subdued color palette of soft white, brown and navy. Color came in the form of geometric patterns with color blocking. Marking her third outing as Céline’s creative director, Phoebe Philo moves the label in a new direction of subtle elegance. Phoebe Philo has changed the way that even the mass market looks at fashion in only 2 full seasons of showing for Celine. For SS 2011 she continues to build our desire for the simple and streamlined, while continuously

staying at the forefront of trends and the top tier of her class. In the last 6 months we have started to see Celine’s aesthetic appear in mass retailers like H&M and Topshop, and the pieces that mirror her parts of her collection can not stay stocked. This is a great sign that the general style of the masses is moving in a more sophisticated direction. It will be refreshing to see this concept translate more deeply into the market.

MOSCHINO Stripes, polka dots, Vichy checks, 3D flowers, prints, cockades, alternating colors, white, blue, red, black, and yellow: Moschino’s Spring/ Summer 2011 collection bursts with graphic energy. In respect for the tradition and history of fashion, the collection has been divided into spring and summer that are reunited in a single colorful and effervescent vision that is graphically distinctive and visually exhilarating. This graphic voyage, which originates in the DNA of Moschino, gradually crosses over into a world of sheer transformation inspired by surrealism: a silk measuring tape becomes trim, scissors closing jackets like precious frogs turn into Lilies of Florence, thimbles are used as metal studs, the pocket hankerchief of a menswear-style double-breasted jacket is a

small fabric boat, and nautical rings are used as decorative elements.

Inventive new silhouettes hug the bust and flare at the hips; strapless bustier dresses and full skirts with appliqué flowers, slim-legged menswear pants are restyled with darts and cuffs and an oversized black and white Vichy check silk tunic is transformed with drawstrings.

Accessories and jewelry accompany the clothes in a refreshing and exciting explosion of colorful graphic energy. “Lily of Florence” earrings are worn with blue and white polka dot bracelets or white and red striped bracelets, there are gold chain belts with tassel tips, shoes and sandals made of silk tie fabric, and rigid PVC handbags are trimmed in silk tie fabric or braided measuring tape is used to imitate a matelassé effect.

IN MAGAZINE - SUMMER 2011


How can you describe Lina Samman’s style? I consider my style quite Eclectic as I like to vary my styles, so while you see me wearing casual in the morning I can be funky & trendy during the day and glamorous chic at evenings. But I always try to keep my own special feminine unique touch.

You seem to attract every lens when entering any event, how do you manage to keep the amazing figure and alluring face? That’s so sweet, thank you! I believe that genuinity and pure soul are the key to why people see this in me. I am who I am and glad that everyone admires that!

When was your “Love at first sight” moment in the fashion world? Maybe when I was 6-7 years old. I remember when my mother used to shop clothes for me I used to become so joyful & happy. No matter what she would get for me I used to take personal interest in every single piece in how, where and when to wear it.

What has Lina’s full attention anytime of the day? For sure, my lovely family whether we are together or they are abroad.

What is the message that Lina Samman wants to send out to all the ladies that look up to her? I really want to thank them for being so kind loving my style, and ask them to always have their own style by being fashionable and not fashion victims. To limit their fashion desires. Every lady has to choose what best suits her body and style and to make sure not to overdo the trends as simplicity is always safe & elegant after all.

IN

What is your perspective on the fashion this season, what is IN and what is not? I like the freshness of this season – the neons, whites and loud prints are the way Summer Season should be! As what is out I really cannot say as it seems nothing is going completely out of fashion.

As a little girl who influenced the way you used to dress and who did you see as your fashion icon? My own taste of style has been always there since I was very little girl, and I used to get attracted by any nice fashion style. Grace Kelly & Jackie Kennedy were the main fashion icons who I used to admire their style since I was young.

What can you tell us about your relationship with your husband Bassam? It is a wonderful relationship and friendship! He is my best friend and best adviser. I am so lucky to have such great husband in my life. I love him and love his family very much. He also provides me with the support and help whenever needed.

Do you ask his opinion when it comes to your looks, and does he ask you to help when he’s dressing up? Yes I do ask him most of the time although he is always positive and would agree to what already selected. And he takes my opinion pretty much too. Actually all our family likes to share ideas, and take other family members’ opinion!

What is the most valuable and sentimental piece you ownclothes or accessories?

We have almost same interests and we really enjoy being together, hanging out, shopping & travelling! They are the real treasure in my life.

It is definitely my Nina Ricci Cabochon Lina Couture bag which was made and dedicated especially for me as a limited collection bag. My understanding that Nina Ricci has produced very few pieces.

What is one thing in your closet that you would never give away? My collection of Hermes & Chanel bags and of course my Nina Ricci Lina’s bag 

Did you ever regret buying a specific clothing item –if yes what is it?

Do you ever think of auctioning pieces in Lina Samman’s closet for a charitable cause? And if you ever did, what would the cause be? Yes sure! I keep some of my favorite timeless pieces and give the rest to different charities regardless of the cause.

What do you think of the new look we see you in today?

Not really! But if I have to pick something, it would be some long dresses as I haven’t worn them at all for some reason and I had to give them away while they are brand new.

Everyone sees the close bond between you and your daughters Tala and Tamara, how do you maintain it with them? The relationship between Tala & Tamara & I have always been more than a mother –daughter relationship. I have always felt that they are my closest friends and being with them always give me pleasure, comfort and lots of fun.

IN

I really liked it for a change, and hope everyone would like it too. Frankly I always wanted to cut my hair short but I have been afraid to do so. To my surprise, I like this new look very much.

As NINA RICCI’s brand ambassador in the Middle East, what can we expect to see soon-any upcoming surprises that we should keep an eye for? Although I can’t tell now but maybe something exciting like my own label with an international designer?

IN.COSMETICS TARGETED TREATMENTS ADDRESS SPECIFIC NEEDS OVERVIEW OF LA PRAIRIE’S SWISS MOISTURE CARE EYES HYDRATION AND PROTECTION Anti-Aging Eye Cream SPF 15 contains multi-action interceptors that act at every stage of aging to prevent, repair and maintain the delicate skin around the eyes. It ombats silent chronic inflammation, a primary cause of premature aging, and offers the benefit of broad spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreens. Anti-Aging Eye Cream SPF 15 also contains a bio-intervention Eye Complex, which helps diminish the appearance of under-eye puffiness, restore the skin’s density and ensure smoother, younger, more radiant skin. Cellular Eye Contour Cream combats dryness and dehydration to provide a gentle firming action to the fragile skin. Amino Acids, soothing Shea Butter and exclusive Cellular Complex make it a nutritious protector with rejuvenating qualities. It is La Prairie’s original eye-care product, specifically targeted for that part of the face most prone to aging. Satisfied customers have pushed it to the top of the best-seller list. FIRMING Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex, with protein-rich Extracts of Caviar and exclusive Cellular Complex, provides instant-firming action that minimizes fine lines, leaving the skin toned and visibly improved. It also enhances the appearance and durability of eye makeup. MULTIPLE SIGNS OF AGING Cellular Radiance Eye Cream restores a youthful glow to skin that has lost its luster and elasticity. This brilliant application of the principles of optical physics enhances the reflective properties of the skin, making it look more radiant from the moment of use. It also diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, reduces the feeling of puffiness and improves skin texture. Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream is a multitasking treatment, boasting outstanding efficacy in treating all seven signs of ageing that occur in the sensitive skin surrounding the eyes: fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, loss of elasticity (sagging), appearance of puffiness, dark under-eye circles and dryness. Formulated with a biopolymer protein, it forms a continuous, ultra-smooth elastic film that firms the skin for optimal lifting action. LINES AND WRINKLES With Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Eye Line Filler La Prairie has created a line-filling formula for the eye area that is an effective alternative to injectable fillers. Along with its instant line filling effect this multi-tasking product is highly hydrating and has rebuilding effects thanks to its collagen boosting properties. Age Management Eye Repair targets telltale lines, directly related to dryness, with a sophisticated blend of AHA, a unique Bio-Repair Complex that renews and smoothes the skin’s surface, and exclusive Cellular Complex that provides energizing nutrients. An excellent travel companion. APPEARANCE OF PUFFINESS AND DARKNESS Cellular Eye Cream Platinum Rare restores the skin’s electrical balance thanks to its key ingredient, Pure Colloidal Platinum. In addition, a Soft Focus Diamond Core Powder has an immediate illuminating effect. This is enhanced by a Dual Peptide Complex, which helps eliminate dark circles under the eyes by strengthening the skin’s support system and activating the skin’s own elimination systems. A cream that simply melts into the skin! White Caviar Illuminating Eye Serum benefits from a unique synergistic action of brightening and firming complexes and natural extracts. The fragile skin surrounding the eyes, where excess pigmentation can be the most pronounced in the form of under-eye darkness and circles, benefits handsomely from this remarkable eye serum. Cellular Revitalizing Eye Gel confronts the most visible effects of stress, fatigue and aging – a feeling of puffiness and dark circles – as it firms and tightens the skin. It utilizes advanced peptide technology to relieve the appearance of puffiness, along with a Peptide Complex and Green Algae Extract, which stimulate collagen synthesis. This action is complemented by Micro Filling Spheres, which deposit Hyaluronic Acid in the skin to plump out wrinkles. In addition, its ultra-light whipped gel consistency produces a cooling, refreshing sensation.

Anti-oxidant Lightenine™ helps protect the cells’ precious DNA from damage caused by oxidative stress*. 3. Advanced whitening efficacy The DIORSNOW UV SHIELD line is formulated with a high concentration of Dior’s breakthrough T.E.C.™ to continuously protect and enhance the 5 key features of skin transparency: evenness, luminosity, moisture, plumpness and fineness.

IN.TALENT What made you try your luck for the 2010 edition of BNTM?

How real do you feel ‘reality tv’ actually is?

I have always enjoyed watching the show since the first season when I was a young girl and thought I would take a shot and try my luck.

It wasnt scripted at all. I would say 70% as there isn’t enough time to show a weeks worth of filming in 55 minutes .  

How did your 2010 victory impact your life?

What is the hardest decision you have had to take since emerging onto the fashion scene as a model?

It has completely changed my life, I am living in another country with is already a dramatic change and I am working as a full time model, travelling and doing all the
things I ever dreamed of.

Describe your experience working as model for one of Europe’s premier agencies; Models1.  It’s brilliant working with Models1 and it makes me feel proud to be represented by them not just because they have a great reputation but also because they are one of the most professional in the industry.  

You were chosen as the face of Revlon in both the UK and Malta. How did it feel to be selected by a brand which normally favors celebrities over models? It was a huge honour and incredibly surreal at the same time.  

Tell us a little about other work that you have been involved in over the last year.  I have had the unique opporunities of working high profile jobs in Paris, London, Milan and more. Some of the highlights were working with Jimmy Choo, Mark Fast,
Flaminia Saccucci, heading London Fashion Week, the Schwarzkopft advert for Glee along with a number of magazine covers, editorial shoots, catwalk shows and also being the face of the campaign for the soft drink ‘Kinnie’.  

Are there any memorable moments that have stood out in your mind over the Last year? It’s so hectic right now that each day presents memorable moments as they stand out for different reasons. The pinnacle of it all for me was the overwhelming support I received from so many followers throughout Europe not only toward the finals of BNTM but also after the show had ended.  

The BNTM competition was indeed a tough one; how did you cope with being in the house with a bunch of beautiful ambitious girls? To be honest I don’t know how, I just gave it everything I had and tried my best to be myself, and accept other people different characters.

 That would be when I had to find a new home for my three cats at home as I had to move to London and deciding whether I wanted to focus on commercial or editorial. I am happy to be succeeding in doing both.

Do you feel that beauty alone is enough for a model to survive? Not at all, looks are obviously an important factor but with beauty alone you wont last a minute. You need to be mentally strong and ambitious. Sadly this is where many young models fail

We understand you are quite young and live away from home. In the cutthroat world of modelling who do can you count on for support when having a tough day? My mum, dad and sister they are only a phone call away and skype is amazing!

Do you ever plan on going back to studying and if so in what field? I always like to keep my options open, I was studying english and philosophy but at this stage I am taking it day by day. At this stage the world is my oyster.

We have seen how Elle McPherson had big hopes for you to win the competition. Describe your relationship with Elle and are you still in contact?  Elle is a really lovely person and you can tell she is a mother. We have a great relationship and she still calls me to see how I am and to give me advice.

We saw how upset you were when Elle made you chop off your blond hair. Deep inside did you believe that she was doing this for your greater good? Do you feel that this impacted on the end result? I think Elle wanted the best for all of us and I am sure she believed short hair would benefit me. I definitely wasn’t happy about it at the time but I do think it helped me through the show.

Has your modelling career effected the relationship with your boyfriend in any way? It has effected every one close to me in the sense that we appreciate eachother’s company more since we spend alot of time apart.

What is the most romantic thing he has ever done for you? He planned a trip to the Mediterranean island of Gozo which included a luxurious day at an exclusive spa, rented an idyllic farm house
and cooked me a lovely meal. The cherry on the cake was the beautiful ring and roses he gave me after.  

Have you ever visited the Middle East and if so where? So far Tunisia and I would love to visit many more .

Is there any place in the Middle East you would like to visit the most? Well the idea of the futuristic Dubai excites me enormously so that would is definitely on my list of places to visit in the near future. Two other places which I am very keen on visiting are and the North African Arab states of Morocco and Egypt for their wealth in history and there location on the lovely Mediterranean Sea.

The Middle East’s fashion profile is high on the rise. Have you ever been tempted to take your modelling career to these shores? Having already been offered jobs for some major Middle Eastern brands it is a strong possibilty. It is common knowledge in the world of fashion how active Dubai and Beirut are in particular, so I will keep you posted as to when I am over enjoying the lovely climate and all these inspirational cities have to offer.

Who is your favourite fashion designer of all time? Without a doubt the late Alexander McQueen, Chanel for their innate sense of timeless elegance and the recently fallen John Galliano.

Who is your role model? My mum is everything to me in everything she does. Without her I truly would not have succeeded in reaching the level I am at today. 

What advice can you give to girls your age who aspire to succeed at modelling. Never to give up and follow your dreams no matter what profession you choose. If you work
hard enough you will achieve your goals is not far off!


GAGA BLITZES THE MARKET WITH LANDMARK CAMPAIGN SOCIAL-MEDIA POWERED MARKETING MAY PROVE TO BE MODEL FOR FUTURE OF MUSIC INDUSTRY By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY, AP Music Writer

IN.MUSIC NEW YORK – The release of a pop star’s album usually comes with the typical cross-marketing splash — strategic magazine covers, a few major TV appearances, and perhaps a cosmetics or fashion deal to remind the public a new project awaits. Yet the social media-powered blitz connected to this week’s drop of Lady Gaga’s third album, “Born This Way,” is bordering on epic, with partnerships ranging from Starbucks to FarmVille, and virtual giveaways of the album’s 17 tracks. It also represents the kind of bold, new business model that could help rejuvenate a deflated music industry. Gaga already had a slew of magazine covers, from Rolling Stone to Vogue, and appeared on every high profile show, from Oprah Winfrey to “American Idol” to “Saturday Night Live,” as well as her own HBO concert special. But she hasn’t stopped there. Starbucks — typically home to easy-on-the-ears artists like Emmylou Harris — is selling her album as well as launching a “digital scavenger hunt” for Gaga-inspired goods; Google Chrome debuted a commercial with Gaga with a track from the album; the online fashion outlet Gilt Groupe partnered with Gaga to offer Gaga-inspired clothing and VIP performances; Best Buy is giving away the album to anyone who purchases a mobile phone with a contract; and Zynga, creator of the popular online game “FarmVille,” created “GagaVille,” which allowed fans access to exclusive Gaga songs. As if that wasn’t enough, on Monday, Amazon.com sold “Born This Way” for just 99 cents as a promotion for their new music cloud service, creating a demand so strong it disrupted the online retailing giant’s servers for a time.

marketing partnerships as possible,” Gaga’s manager, Troy Carter, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “Just with the diminishing music labels, you want to find quality partners where you know you can reach new audiences and being able to push boundaries as well.” Among the promotions connected with “Born This Way” is the Disney Mobile Tapulous game Tap Tap Revenge, which gives fans access to the entire album and other content if they buy the game,” Born This Way Revenge,” for $4.99. It’s the first time Tapulous has put out 17 tracks with a game for that price. Tim O’Brien, vice president of business development at Disney Mobile, said this was the third deal with Gaga, resulting in the total sale of five million songs so far. While they’ve worked with other pop artists with their Tap Tap Revenge app, he said Gaga — who has 10 million followers on Twitter and was recently crowned Forbes’ most influential celebrity in part because of her tens of millions of followers online — is an act with unique appeal. “I’ve never seen anything as powerful as when Gaga hits her social media channels compared to anyone else that we’ve worked with,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like it in terms of how she’s utilizing social media.” In pop history, there have been plenty of attention-grabbing publicity campaigns for debuting albums: Who can forget the huge statues Jackson had erected of himself and placed across the world for his “HIStory” album, or when the Backstreet Boys hit six continents in four days to promote “Black and Blue”? Then there was Jay-Z, who performed in seven cities in 17-hours for his comeback album, “Kingdom Come.”

And it looks like the campaigns are paying off: Gaga’s album is estimated to sell anywhere between a half-million to a million copies when the top album charts are revealed next week.

But Bill Werde, editorial director of Billboard, calls Gaga’s promotional efforts “more of a landmark campaign” for the new music industry.

“It was really about expanding the distribution on this album and going into as many non-traditional retail partnerships and non-traditional

“There’s nothing about Gaga that’s subtle, so I don’t see why her marketing campaign would be any different,” he added.

One of the more unusual promotions was Amazon’s decision to sell the MP3 version of Gaga’s album for 99 cents on Monday, the day of its release, as part of its Amazon Cloud Drive, which gives consumers personal digital storage space on a remote network or cloud; 20 gigabytes of cloud space came with the album. However, there was such a demand it caused delays for Amazon’s customers, a spokeswoman said. Though some people questioned the decision to basically give the album away, Carter wasn’t concerned at all, calling the promotional idea “incredible.” “I am more concerned about piracy and people stealing the music. If you can get somebody to experience the music at that sort of price for one day only, I think it gets a lot of attention for the album,” he added. Werde said that’s key in an age where album sales are deflated and serve more as a promotional tool for the artist’s other money-making projects, including touring, in an industry more focused on what is called the 360-model of generating revenue. “It’s one of first big superstar releases that really grasps the potential of the new music business that everybody is talking about,” he said. “For a superstar artist like a Gaga, the sale of recorded music — not the quality of the music, mind you, but the sale of recorded music_ really gets sort of assumed as a marketing cost to drive this 360-engine.” Carter says his data indicates Gaga may sell over 500,000 copies in the first week, and perhaps 700,000; Werde said “Born This Way” could go as high as one million. But Carter says the unique marketing tools used leading up to and during the album’s release wasn’t just to achieve monster sales for the album’s debut. “Nobody ever pays attention in the second week,” he said. “For us it’s about being in this album cycle for the next 18 to 24 months.” It seems Gaga-mania won’t be easing anytime soon.


IN.CINEMA THE VOW (2012) THE TRAILER What good is Valentine’s Day without a nice big helping of sappy romance? Generally the answer is “none,” but today Screen Gems released the first trailer for The Vow, effectively telling the world that they’re doing their part to ensure there is tear-inducing romance ready for next year. The first trailer for director Michael Sucsy’s (Grey Gardens) drama The Vow has gone online. Starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, the film was inspired by a true story and centers on a young woman (McAdams) who loses all recent memory in a car accident and struggles to rebuild her identity, while her husband (Tatum) tries to win her heart for the second time. Surprisingly, this is not based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. Judging from the trailer, the flick looks like it’s better than it has to be. McAdams is a fine actress, and Sucsy’s work on HBO’s Grey Gardens was fantastic. Tatum’s been trying to work his way into more dramatic fare (both in acting and producing), but I’m still not sold on him as a serious actor. Hit the jump to watch the trailer for yourself. The Vow hits theaters February 10th, 2012. The Vow stars Rachel McAdams, Channing Tatum, Sam Neill, Scott Speedman, Jessica Lange and Jessica McNamee.

BAD TEACHER (2011) Some teachers just don’t give an F. For example, there’s Elizabeth. She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can’t wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she’s dumped by her fiance, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute - competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy. When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher, the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.
