Beauty Exclusive beauty editorial by Filip Koludrovic.     An experimental beauty story approached without a moodboard, but rather using the mix of the emotions and current mental states of everyone in the studio to create something without knowing the final outcome. That was the guide we were using when we met at the end of 2020. in a half abandoned factory on the suburbs of Belgrade, Serbia.    Filip Koludrovic: For this project we decided to form a dialog, a two way flow between the photographer and the model. It's extremely important what the model will bring on set with their energy. Knowing Jovana and her art the idea came to let me document that day with my camera, and after she was to document her experience through her drawings.   Jovana Krneta: Fashion supports art. My incide world speaks through my body the same way as throughout my drawings. How I see the world from a model's point of view is connected with the lens of the camera and photographer himself. It’s all connected, it’s all one, like the universe.     Photography: Filip Koludrovic (@filipkoludrovic) Model & illustrator: Jovana Krneta (@krneta) Beauty: Dragan Vurdelja (@drvurdelja) editor: Timotej Letonja Exclusive beauty editorial by Filip Koludrovic.     An experimental beauty story approached without a moodboard, but rather using the mix of the emotions and current mental states of everyone in the studio to create something without knowing the final outcome.

LE LIFT LOTION BY CHANEL

LE LIFT LOTION BY CHANEL

Beauty Lotions are the prelude to every beauty ritual and are fundamental for radiant skin. As a complementary and now essential bonus, they nalize cleansing and prepare the skin to receive the next products. LE LIFT Lotion delivers targeted anti-aging action. The secret: botanical alfalfa concentrate, a smoothing and rming active ingredient, combined with a magnetic water complex developed by CHANEL Research, which delivers bene cial hydration deep within the skin. Bringing together e cacy and extreme comfort, LE LIFT Lotion was specially reformulated to o er a combination of high-performance, natural ingredients and a sensorial experience.     MAGNETIC WATER COMPLEX:   Based on its extensive understanding of the skin and its formulation expertise, CHANEL Research created a magnetic water complex composed of skin-mimetic elements with the power to structure water in concentric layers, which increases its a nity and availability within the skin. Like a magnet, it helps attract, bind, and retain water molecules for intense, long-lasting epidermal hydration.     BOTANICAL ALFAIFA CONCENTRATE:   For the LE LIFT range, CHANEL selected a plant grown in France that is rich in minerals, trace elements, vitamins and amino acids: alfalfa. A green biotech- nological process is used to extract a high-performance, smoothing and rming active ingredient from its seeds. Gentle on the skin, its action is similar to that of retinol, a key ingredient against skin aging.* It stimulates the production of type I collagen and reactivates the cellular proliferation of keratinocytes, all while encouraging epidermal di erentiation.*       SMOOTH, FIRM, HYDRATED AND PLUMP SKIN:   LE LIFT Lotion preserves the skin’s balance for radiant beauty. In a nity with the skin, it has a new, denser, jelly-like texture that transforms into a water on application. It absorbs instantly and leaves skin with a pleasant feeling of comfort (+23%**). The tensing e ect is immediate (+17%**). Skin texture is re ned and pores are less visible (-13%****). Skin appears plumped (+14%**) and stays hydrated for 8 hours.*** Smoother and rmer, it is better prepared to face daily aggressors. The complexion glows with luminosity (+17%**).         THE PLUMPING APPLICATION TECHNIQUE:   As a rst beauty step, apply LE LIFT Lotion morning and evening with the ngertips or a cotton pad, smoothing from the center of the face outward and over the neck after carefully cleansing and removing makeup. For even better results, gently pinch the skin along the nasolabial folds, the forehead line, and on the cheeks with the thumb and index nger. Repeat 3 times. Follow with the other products from the LE LIFT range: Crème Yeux, Sérum, Crème or Crème de Nuit. Lotions are the prelude to every beauty ritual and are fundamental for radiant skin.

LE LION DE CHANEL

LE LION DE CHANEL

Beauty LIFE UNDER THE SIGN OF THE LION     Certain coincidences have the power to forge destinies. For Gabrielle Chanel, the lion was one of them. The fifth sign of the Zodiac, the lion watched over her from the day she was born on August 19, 1883. Superstitious and fascinated by the stars, Gabrielle quickly considered the animal associated with her birth date as a source of luck. In 1920, devastated by the sudden death of the love of her life, Boy Capel, she let her friends José-Maria Sert and his wife Misia convince her to join them on their trip to Venice. Gabrielle fell madly in love with the city and experienced it like a rebirth. She drew strength from the bustling energy and the artistic and fashionable atmosphere of the city, like her, under the sign of the Lion. Guardian figure of the city that captivated and inspired her, the feline symbol of bravery and renewal was everywhere. Sovereign. Towering over St Mark’s square, decorating pediments and palace doors, gracing mosaics and stone statues, her revered animal filled her with the strength to carry on. Venice marked the beginning of a new life. The treasures of Byzantine art she discovered in this city of contrasts that marks the boundary between East and West became a lasting source of inspiration for her style, in which the lion quite naturally found its rightful place. Because it seemed to have been there with her from the start, Gabrielle, an enlightened lover of fortuitous coincidences, saw the lion as much more than an emblem: it was her talisman. Bold, instinctive, solar, she cultivated the strong and independent character that likened her to the lion and surrounded herself with its benevolent presence. The lion became the guardian of her apartment at 31 Rue Cambon. Sculpted in marble, bronze or wood, set on a table or a mantle, watching over her cigarettes and scissors, the king of the animal kingdom protected the intimate space of Gabrielle Chanel. To keep it by her side, she also added it to her creations. Engraved on tweed suit buttons or the clasps of her bags, the lion would become a favorite subject and icon of CHANEL High Jewelry. Today, it is making a majestic foray into the world of CHANEL fragrances as the latest addition to the LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL collection.       #LesExclusifsDeCHANEL     #CHANELFragrance LIFE UNDER THE SIGN OF THE LION     Certain coincidences have the power to forge destinies.

HEAVENLY GINGERLILY Celebrating 50 Years of Molton Brown

Beauty We’re deeply proud to be celebrating 50 years of Molton Brown, which has inspired us to revisit our roots, and spotlight one of our iconic fragrances.     Heavenly Gingerlily is one of our earliest and most beloved collections, created in the most individual way; we’ve always believed in championing our perfumers’ unique expressions and nurturing their creativity. This bewitching, white-floral scent was a personal project of Master Perfumer Jacques Chabert – the perfumer we’ve had the longest standing friendship with over the years – making this, our 50th year, a meaningful time to pay homage to his original creation.     The idea for Heavenly Gingerlily blossomed when Jacques visited a botanical garden and discovered an exceptional type of ginger flower. Captivated by its heady, floral quality, he combined it with aquatic notes; in doing so, he put his own twist on the ‘90s marine perfumery trend. The result was a sensual fragrance veiled with warm, spicy tones and tropical wanderlust. Jacques initially named it ‘Gingerlily’, and we stayed true to his vision when we launched the collection that remains cherished to this day. We added ‘Heavenly’ because this is exactly the way the fragrance makes you feel.     I love to create fragrances that transcend trends. Heavenly Gingerlily captures that at its very essence. Its delicate yet sensuous floral signature is artfully tinged with piquant cardamom. It’s graceful and exudes an expressive aura through its flower-rich heart.” Jacques Chabert, Master Perfumer We’re deeply proud to be celebrating 50 years of Molton Brown, which has inspired us to revisit our roots, and spotlight one of our iconic fragrances.     Heavenly Gingerlily is one of our earliest and most beloved collections, created in the most individual way; we’ve always believed in championing our perfumers’ unique expressions and nurturing their creativity.

In conversation with Nicolas Gerlier, founder of La Bouche Rouge

Beauty The Manifesto Reasoned Beauty Today, true luxury implies sustainable objects and formulas.     Producing and consuming in a sustainable manner is no longer solely urgent, it’s now also vital. La Bouche Rouge intends to lead the way in reinventing everyday objects, guiding women to consume dierently and think in a new manner. Without greenwashing, La Bouche Rouge chose to avoid all use of plastics, even those recycled. The first makeup routine without microplastics. La Bouche Rouge launches its complete line that reinvents the makeup ritual.     Why did you create La Bouche Rouge?   After a long career working for a large cosmetics group, I wanted to take on a project that resonated with my values. As a father of three, I wanted to show them that it was possible to build a better world: with La Bouche Rouge, I created a company that respects the planet and that avoids all use of plastic, a problem that wasn’t considered at that time. I wanted to create beautiful, desirable objects that are made to endure and accompany women allthroughout their lives. I wished to work with French artisans and artists, to create a brand that is alive, intelligent, creative, and which has a purpose and impact on the world. This, for me, is true modernity. We start a revolution with each of our daily choices. La Bouche Rouge is part of that.     For you, how does the beauty of tomorrow look?   I think that the crisis that we are currently experiencing will put an end to the consumer habits of the 20th century. Luxury should be the first sector to show the way. Luxury’s mission is to render our lives sublime. It’s therefore unthinkable for us to create objects that destroy the planet. That would be senseless! One of our cherished values is also that of a positive economy: luxury companies should have a positive social, human and environmental impact. We are committed to this through each step of our products creation. This also entails the quality ofour products, with their clean formulas and high na-turality, which are easy and pleasant to use. The future is also a world without plastic. Since 1950, only 9% of plastic waste in the world has been recycled, and around 12% is burned. The majority of it ends up in dumps, nature or the oceans. The cosmetics industry has the potential to bring about tremendous change: it’s the third most polluting industry in terms of plastic, after automobiles and fashion.That’s why we’re working towards a path of cleaner beauty. We created beauty without plastic at each step, from production to our formulas, even, for instance, with regards to our lipstick moulds and how we present our products in stores.     Why did you choose not to use recycled plastics?   Recycled plastic is the exact opposite of sustainability. It’s a material that is still poorly transformed: the majority of recycling methods still pollute and createwaste. The methods that recreate plastic that’s 100% reusable are rare. Because of its brittleness, plastic, even recycled, continues to leave microparticles. To avoid this, we have to create new desires. That’s LaBouche Rouge’s mission: to create objects so beautiful that you don’t wish to toss them, but rather, to reuse them.     How did you conceive the mascara brush in castor oil?   It entails the same method as traditional brushes: castor oil is poured into the same moulds that areused to create plastic brushes. It naturally solidies. Once solid, it can be used just as long as the mascara itself, without transferring into the formula. It’s therst of its kind in the world!       How did you choose the metal alloy that constitutes the universal case?   It’s a blend of zinc, aluminium, magnesium and copper, of which a portion is already recycled. It is highly resistant, does not get easily ruined and canbe recycled an in nite number of times. As it is heavy and precious, it is easily identified by waste sorting channels: this guarantees that it will be properly recycled, unlike other metals.     Why did you choose to use leather?   We use scraps of leather from the luxury industry. This allows us to highlight French artisanry, without producing any additional leather. Thanks to this, we maintain ties with French living heritage companies, which hold an unparalleled, traditional savoir-faire. This allows us to create artisanal, French objects that are at the fore front of fashion, which isprecisely what we all want to create today. To satisfyall our clients, we also have a vegan version. Speaking of which, all La Bouche Rouge formulas are vegan.     Why were you adamant about avoiding all microplastics in your products?   They pose a health risk: mascara and shadow particles – glitter, for instance – can fall into the eye, thereby altering the mucous membrane and causingeye diseases. An American study proved that we find nearly 30% of microplastics in the form of silicone or glitter in the eye after application. Therefore, we created formulas without risks for one’s health, and which can be used with contact lenses.   The Manifesto Reasoned Beauty Today, true luxury implies sustainable objects and formulas.     Producing and consuming in a sustainable manner is no longer solely urgent, it’s now also vital. La Bouche Rouge intends to lead the way in reinventing everyday objects, guiding women to consume dierently and think in a new manner. Without greenwashing, La Bouche Rouge chose to avoid all use of plastics, even those recycled. The first makeup routine without microplastics. La Bouche Rouge launches its complete line that reinvents the makeup ritual.     Why did you create La Bouche Rouge?   After a long career working for a large cosmetics group, I wanted to take on a project that resonated with my values. As a father of three, I wanted to show them that it was possible to build a better world: with La Bouche Rouge, I created a company that respects the planet and that avoids all use of plastic, a problem that wasn’t considered at that time. I wanted to create beautiful, desirable objects that are made to endure and accompany women allthroughout their lives. I wished to work with French artisans and artists, to create a brand that is alive, intelligent, creative, and which has a purpose and impact on the world. This, for me, is true modernity. We start a revolution with each of our daily choices. La Bouche Rouge is part of that.     For you, how does the beauty of tomorrow look?   I think that the crisis that we are currently experiencing will put an end to the consumer habits of the 20th century. Luxury should be the first sector to show the way. Luxury’s mission is to render our lives sublime. It’s therefore unthinkable for us to create objects that destroy the planet. That would be senseless! One of our cherished values is also that of a positive economy: luxury companies should have a positive social, human and environmental impact. We are committed to this through each step of our products creation. This also entails the quality ofour products, with their clean formulas and high na-turality, which are easy and pleasant to use. The future is also a world without plastic. Since 1950, only 9% of plastic waste in the world has been recycled, and around 12% is burned. The majority of it ends up in dumps, nature or the oceans. The cosmetics industry has the potential to bring about tremendous change: it’s the third most polluting industry in terms of plastic, after automobiles and fashion.That’s why we’re working towards a path of cleaner beauty. We created beauty without plastic at each step, from production to our formulas, even, for instance, with regards to our lipstick moulds and how we present our products in stores.     Why did you choose not to use recycled plastics?   Recycled plastic is the exact opposite of sustainability. It’s a material that is still poorly transformed: the majority of recycling methods still pollute and createwaste. The methods that recreate plastic that’s 100% reusable are rare. Because of its brittleness, plastic, even recycled, continues to leave microparticles. To avoid this, we have to create new desires. That’s LaBouche Rouge’s mission: to create objects so beautiful that you don’t wish to toss them, but rather, to reuse them.     How did you conceive the mascara brush in castor oil?   It entails the same method as traditional brushes: castor oil is poured into the same moulds that areused to create plastic brushes. It naturally solidies. Once solid, it can be used just as long as the mascara itself, without transferring into the formula. It’s therst of its kind in the world!       How did you choose the metal alloy that constitutes the universal case?   It’s a blend of zinc, aluminium, magnesium and copper, of which a portion is already recycled. It is highly resistant, does not get easily ruined and canbe recycled an in nite number of times. As it is heavy and precious, it is easily identified by waste sorting channels: this guarantees that it will be properly recycled, unlike other metals.     Why did you choose to use leather?   We use scraps of leather from the luxury industry. This allows us to highlight French artisanry, without producing any additional leather. Thanks to this, we maintain ties with French living heritage companies, which hold an unparalleled, traditional savoir-faire. This allows us to create artisanal, French objects that are at the fore front of fashion, which isprecisely what we all want to create today. To satisfyall our clients, we also have a vegan version. Speaking of which, all La Bouche Rouge formulas are vegan.     Why were you adamant about avoiding all microplastics in your products?   They pose a health risk: mascara and shadow particles – glitter, for instance – can fall into the eye, thereby altering the mucous membrane and causingeye diseases. An American study proved that we find nearly 30% of microplastics in the form of silicone or glitter in the eye after application. Therefore, we created formulas without risks for one’s health, and which can be used with contact lenses.

Louis Vuitton Unveils Bespoke Perfume Service

Beauty Louis Vuitton perpetuates the Art of Personalization and launches its bespoke Haute Perfumery service with Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. A unique creation, conceived and made in Grasse.     It all started in Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s creative atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse, the cradle of perfumery and leatherworking trades. Since 2012, this is where the Master Perfumer has conceived his most beautiful olfactive propositions for the House. Now, he is opening his workshop to bespoke perfumery, for unique and personalized creations made upon request, in the tradition of the special orders that have been rooted deeply in the Louis Vuitton DNA since 1854.     “I wanted to offer our clients the possibility of wearing a unique fragrance, made in my creative workshop,” explains Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. “To me, this bespoke Haute Perfumery service represents the essence of the House, because ultra personalization has always been at the heart of Louis Vuitton.”     The objective of this unique and privileged moment is to create the client’s olfactory portrait. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud inquires as to tastes, memories, and lifestyle as well as typical perfume habits. In the process, a genuine, intimate collaboration takes shape between client and Master Perfumer. After this exceptional and emotionally rich consultation, the Master Perfumer begins composing a scent and develops several formulas in his atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse. To do so, he selects from among the most exclusive raw materials he has sourced in the four corners of the globe, in order to create the fragrance trail that best corresponds to its client’s personality. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud can then calibrate each olfactory nuance down to the tiniest details to offer a resolutely made-to- measure composition.     An exceptional showcase:   It takes several months to finalize a fragrance formula. The perfume is then composed by hand at the Atelier d’Art, a new space dedicated to bespoke perfumes in the heart of Les Fontaines Parfumées. In the meantime, the trunk in which the perfume will be presented is specially crafted in Asnières, Louis Vuitton’s historic workshop and the cradle for all of its special orders. This unique and personalizable trunk holds four 100ml bottles, three 200ml bottles, a 100ml travel case, a travel spray, plus 16 refills.   A sustainable service:   As with all of the House’s perfumes, made-to-measure Haute Perfumery benefits from a refill service upon request, which is available in all Louis Vuitton stores carrying perfume fountains. Each unique formula will be forever inscribed in the Louis Vuitton archives at Les Fontaines Parfumées so that the client’s olfactory signature may be perpetuated.     Special orders: Historic savoir-faire:   Since its founding, the House has accompanied clients in their quest for rare and exceptional products and perpetuated the Art of Personalization, a tradition inscribed in the trunk-maker’s DNA since 1854. In 1859, the House opened its workshop in Asnières, just outside Paris. To this day, trunks and special orders are crafted there by highly qualified artisans for travellers the world over. The emblematic Desk-Trunk for the renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski and the Tea Service Trunk for the Maharaja of Baroda were made here. More recently, the House’s historic workshop crafted cases for transporting the world’s most prestigious sports trophies, including those for the FIFA, the French Open, and the NBA, as well as Sneaker and Vanity Trunks — contemporary versions of the cosmetic cases of the 1920s.     The special order service will be available starting in November 2020.
