Hathaway made her debut as an ambassador during the Cannes Film Festival last week, where she wore a custom white sequined column gown by Armani Privé paired with Bulgari’s Mediterranean Reverie necklace and a matching sapphire ring from the brand’s high jewelry collection. She was styled by Erin Walsh.
Besides the Oscar-winning actress and Zendaya, Bulgari’s new media campaign will include Blackpink’s Lisa Manoban, Chinese actress Shu Qi and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, all of whom will present Bulgari’s jewelry and watch collections.

Celine RTW Fall 2022

Celine RTW Fall 2022

Squeaking in with his fall 2022 collection film for Celine two months after Paris Fashion Week and just before the destination cruise shows kick off in earnest, Hedi Slimane was in fine form.
By now his formula is familiar — spectacular settings in France, a hypnotic-bordering-on-annoying soundtrack, a few exits worn by house ambassador Lalisa Manobal, all slickly produced — but it suits his to-the-point fashions, eminently wearable and nonchalant yet elegant.
Almost every model sported black sunglasses, wash-and-go hair and a chain-handled handbag, the most striking in octagonal shapes. Handsomely tailored coats and blazers were underpinned by black turtlenecks accented with a short gold chain, while sharp-heeled boots finished off boyish jeans.

Slimane is steadily making Celine a go-to house for terrific jeans and now cool leather pants, too, all finished off with sharp-heeled boots. The designer mashed up countrified checks and tweeds with shimmering dresses, urban leathers and skirts in a way that seems completely plausible.

His leather blousons, snap-front shirt jackets, peacoats, cardigan-like shearlings and strapless minidresses are hardly revolutionary, but they are also appealing, luxuriously realized and slyly cool. Apart from a logo windbreaker and a cocoon-shaped gray hoodie-cum-cape, Slimane eased up on logos and streetwear shapes in favor of crystal-pavéd evening dresses, sparkly cardigans and draped, scarf-like tops.

The clean lines of the clothes were a foil to the lavish settings: the gilded 18th-century “Salons d’Apparat” at the Hôtel de la Marine on the Place de la Concorde, which reopened last year after a long renovation. Slimane’s press notes, which make no mention of the clothes, detailed the architectural features of this historic building, those salons “originally used to present the royal collections to French and foreign visitors.”
Interspersed were scenes captured at the Hôtel National des Invalides, and a minimalist black pavilion plunked at the foot of its gilded Dome where Napoleon is entombed. Slimane has staged physical shows there in a similar black tent, so let’s hope it’s a teaser that Celine will be back on the official calendar soon.

Celine Women’s Spring 2022

Celine Women’s Spring 2022

Hedi Slimane gets the last word on the spring 2022 season with his brisk fashion film for Celine, which could also double as a terrific tourism campaign for the French resort city of Nice.
The idyllic footage is enough to make you want to don a straw boater, a cardigan-style jacket and mom jeans to stroll the Promenade des Anglais, the sunshine glinting off your handbag chain and a breeze ruffling your loose tresses.
Slimane is a brilliant image maker, opening his 12-minute, rapid-cut film with a Celine-branded cruise ship steaming toward the Baie des Anges, its famed Hotel Negresco also bearing the name of the French fashion house, and closing with a lighthouse flickering to life amid a blazing sunset.

Amid all the historically important architecture, meticulously described in the press notes, and with the seafront as a backdrop came a parade of perfectly styled outfits, a calculated mash-up of bourgeois tailoring and varsity casualness — with a soupçon of streetwear cool.

Slimane dialed back the branding to the most laid-back pieces in the collection — bomber jackets, oversized hoodies and ball caps — and ramped up the use of shine via sequins and metallic leather, giving the collection a more glamorous allure. There were even a few ruffles.

While many of the pieces are familiar wardrobe staples — trenchcoats, pussy-bow blouses, fluffy sweaters, LBDs and mannish striped shirts — Slimane has a knack for idealizing them via the right combinations and styling tricks. Low-slung trousers came with kitten heels, while leggy looks ended with platform high-tops.
Interspersed with models strolling on the beach or the perimeter of an observatory were preening shots of two Celine muses: the model Kaia Gerber and the Thai music sensation Lalisa Manobal of Blackpink, whose role as a Celine brand ambassador was recently expanded to include its Haute Parfumerie collection.
It all fed a straightforward theme of summer on the Riviera, with a fresh, young spirit.

Blackpink’s Lisa Is on the Jury for ANDAM Fashion Prize: Exclusive

Blackpink’s Lisa Is on the Jury for ANDAM Fashion Prize: Exclusive

Lalisa Manoban, known simply as Lisa to Blackpink’s legion of fans, has joined the jury of the 2021 ANDAM awards and will help select the next winner of the prestigious French fashion prize.
The Thai music sensation headlines a star-studded list of guest jurors that also includes Chinese singer Chris Lee and fashion designers Kerby Jean-Raymond and Phoebe Philo, the latter making her first appearance on the fashion scene since exiting Celine at the end of 2017.
Revealing its 2021 guest jurors exclusively to WWD, ANDAM unfurled a diverse list of creative types that reflects a changing topography of influence as the traditional fashion gatekeepers — magazine editors and retailers — yields to photographers, educators, business disruptors, stylists, entertainers, digital enterprises and next-gen media personalities.

The other jury members are French singer and actress Lou Doillon; photographer Juergen Teller and his creative partner Dovile Drizyte; researcher and educator Linda Loppa; serial entrepreneur Natalie Massenet; Amazon’s head of fashion direction Sally Singer; stylist Marie Chaix; stylist and fashion editor Suzanne Koller of M Le Monde, and the editors Chioma Nnadi of Vogue.com and Pierre M’Pelé of The Perfect Magazine and the Instagram account Pam Boy.
“Fashion is being nourished by new influences,” said Cédric Charbit, chief executive officer of Balenciaga and the president of this year’s ANDAM jury. “It’s a new era wherever you look.”

Charbit decided to fling the door open wide and make the jury more varied, “progressive,” and international, which should further fan interest in the 32nd edition of the annual design competition, which recently upped the grand prize amount to 300,000 euros from 250,000 euros.
“The jury is coming from different horizons, and represent the different facets and faces of creativity today,” Charbit said in an interview. “It’s the only way that we give a good and proper reading of something that’s modern and conscious for a talent for tomorrow.
“The jury members are inspiring for all of us, because of their accomplishments, of course, but also because in one way or another each one has marked or changed his or her time and potentially the generations to come,” Charbit added. “I really want to thank them because I think it’s a very elegant gesture that you say, ‘Yes, I want to be part of this.’”
“We are super proud, and humbled in front of such a panel,” said ANDAM president Guillaume Houzé, who oversees communications for Galeries Lafayette Group and is president of the Galeries Lafayette Foundation.
As jury president, Charbit will serve as a mentor to the 2021 winner for one year “to help them scale their creative processes, strengthen their business and try to build international capacities,” Houzé explained. “So this level of commitment from a prominent figure in the luxury industry really helps.”
Houzé said ANDAM was one of the first fashion prizes to add a yearlong mentorship, starting in 2011 when luxury executive Ralph Toledano, now president of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, was paired with that year’s winner Anthony Vaccarello, now the creative director of Saint Laurent.

“This is crucial to success. Money might give some wiggle room to run operations, but mentoring is really what can help young creative directors build their business vision and culture,” Houzé explained.
In his view, mentors can help young creatives sharpen their skills and capabilities across the supply chain, including digitalization, along with their sustainability credentials and soft skills. “Nothing great can be achieved today without humility,” he noted.
For its 2020 edition, which unfurled amid the early days of the coronavirus crisis, ANDAM pivoted to a “family fund award” focused on former winners and finalists, ultimately granting 200,000 euros to Marine Serre and 150,000 euros to Glenn Martens’ Y/Project.
Houzé said it was important to return to the fundamentals of ANDAM. “We may have spent almost a year behind our computer screens, but Paris remains the beating heart of the industry,” he said. “So it was essential for us to show the world that we could adapt and move on and get past this.”
Charbit said creativity remains a key criteria, and candidates are valued for being sustainable, commercial, different, inclusive, diverse and modern, as well as being an agent of change and being a “progressive leader” in fashion.
Given the travel restrictions and other pandemic-related challenges, much of the jury work will be done remotely, which Charbit and Houzé characterized as beneficial, putting all members on an equal footing no matter where they are in the world.
“It’s going to be easier for everybody,” Charbit said. “We all had a chance also to work remotely lately and to be able to assess a project in the calm and in your own environment makes a lot of sense.”
That said, Houzé held out hope that jurors and finalists can gather for the final deliberations and the announcement of the winner on July 1 in Paris. Organizers are eyeing a prestigious outdoor venue for what is usually a lively cocktail party and rare gathering of a broad cross-section of the industry.
Candidates are invited to apply online until April 27. Finalists are to be revealed at the end of May. Contenders for the grand prize can be of any nationality, but must own a French company or set one up during the same year as the receipt of the fellowship.
As reported, Sophie Delafontaine, artistic director at Longchamp, is to mentor the winner of the Pierre Bergé Prize, which focuses on young French companies and is worth 100,000 euros; Giovanna Engelbert, Swarovski’s creative director, the winner of the Fashion Accessories Prize, which comes with a sum of 50,000 euros, and Yann Gozlan, founder and president of Creative Valley, the Innovation Prize, also valued at 50,000 euros.
Created in 1989 by Nathalie Dufour with the support of the French Ministry of Culture and the DEFI and with the late Pierre Bergé as president, ANDAM — the French acronym for National Association of the Development of the Fashion Arts — has been a springboard for designers who would go on to achieve international recognition.
Past winners include Martin Margiela, Viktor & Rolf, Christophe Lemaire and Jeremy Scott.
ANDAM is also supported by large corporate sponsors, which now include Balenciaga, Chanel, Chloé, Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent, Galeries Lafayette, Google, Hermès, Kering, Lacoste, Longchamp, LVMH, L’Oréal Paris, OTB, Premiere Classe, Saint Laurent, Swarovski and Tomorrow. Executives from most of those firms comprise permanent members of the jury.
