Chanel premieres new N°5 Film

CHANEL premiered “The One That I Want,” a new campaign celebrating the iconic fragrance CHANEL N°5. The film is produced, conceived, and directed by auteur filmmaker Baz Luhrmann ( Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby), with production design by Oscar-winner Catherine Martin, and features Supermodel Gisele Bündchen.

When Luhrmann directed the N°5 film starring Actress Nicole Kidman in 2004, he joined a prestigious line of directors who have collaborated with CHANEL – from Ridley Scott and Luc Besson to Kathryn Bigelow and Martin Scorsese.

Ten years ago, N°5 was the fragrance of a woman who decided to break free from it all and then return to reality, renouncing her desire. Today, through Luhrmann’s eyes, we see the N°5 woman deciding to listen to her heart. She is a modern woman who knows exactly who she is and is free to make her own choices. The film tells the story of a woman who struggles to find space for everything — herself, family, career, and love.

“The CHANEL woman can be with herself on a beach, can be with her child, can have an aspirational and fulfilling work life, and at the same time she can have a true relationship; she can have romance,” says Luhrmann. “And in the end, the CHANEL woman chooses love.”

Like the N°5 women who have gone before her — Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet and Nicole Kidman — Bündchen is emblematic of her time. Model, actress, mother, philanthropist, and businesswoman, she is one of the most dynamic women of the decade.

Luhrmann’s strong connection to the world of music, so evident in his feature films, is reflected in his choice of Lo-Fang’s cover of “You’re the One That I Want.” With no words or dialogue in the film, the music is not an accompaniment; it is its backbone.

CHANEL N˚5, the world’s most famous fragrance, was created in 1921 when Coco Chanel asked the great perfumer, Ernest Beaux, to create a fragrance that reflected her vision of modern femininity. N˚5 was her lucky number and it was the fifth submission presented to Mademoiselle Chanel, thus a legend was born with the name CHANEL N˚5.

You pronounce Givenchy perfectly even though you never took French. You follow more fashion designers on Instagram than actual acquaintances. You pored over pages of Vogue editorials before you were old enough to read. Your friends always come to you first for outfit advice (and to raid your closet). You know exactly which designers your favorite celebrities are wearing to each award show, because you saw them being marched down the runways last season. You live, breathe, and consume fashion—and you were born to be a stylist.

rb4Here’s the deal. Styling is one of those professions that sounds nice in theory, but doesn’t exactly come with a handbook — until now! Simply Stylist has teamed up with The Grove and celebrity stylist Anita Patrickson to present a three-day Styling Bootcamp for anyone who dreams of dressing people up for a living. We know — totally worth pausing your #ootd scrolling for, right? Anita is one of the top stylists in the industry, dressing everyone from Emma Watson to Julianne Hough, as well as styling the covers of a number of magazines including Elle, InStyle and Glamour. She — along with other top experts in the fashion field — will show you the ropes on everything from how to handle samples to styling an editorial shoot. And with a max attendance size of 50, you know you’re going to get quality time and attention.

Still not convinced? How about this: one attendee will actually be selected to assist Anita (and get paid) for a styling job after the event — a (well-soled) foot in the door, to say the least. Plus, every attendee will leave with a Stylist Starter Kit gift bag, a binder filled with contacts and notes to kickstart your career, network time with top names in the industry, one year of DripBook, and one professional photo styled by you to kick off your styling career.

So, fashionable ones — what are you waiting for? Your styling career is calling!

Day One: Styling 101
Day one, we’ll cover the basics. Anita will share how she ended up as a top stylist and show you everything you need to know about styling fundamentals (setting up for a shoot, how to use your styling kit, invoicing and billing, and many other requirements). An agent from one of the top style agencies, The Wall Group, and a PR rep from Carolina Herrera and Diane Von Furstenberg will give you the inside scoop on what it takes to be a successful stylist.

Day Two: Editorial Styling
On the second day of Styling Bootcamp at The International Style Institute, you’ll learn everything you need to know about styling an editorial shoot — from writing a request letter, to creating mood boards, and more. Afterwards, you’ll actually be able to style a professional model, with Anita and her team on-site to mentor and assist. You’ll leave with a glossy, untouched image—the perfect addition (or start) to your styling portfolio.

Day Three: Celebrity Styling
On the final day of Bootcamp, you’ll learn the do’s and don’ts of celebrity dressing — such as which designers to borrow from and what questions to ask your client before you take on a project. You’ll get a Grove gift card (yours to keep!) to use to style another student. The day will wrap with Project Runway-style feedback from Anita.

Publication prepares to spotlight winner of fashion challenge at partner’s West Coast showcase debut

Linger Magazine, a Boston-based fashion publication, is proud to announce its partnership with Moda360, a ground-breaking platform that combines fashion, art, music and video for a unique presentation of international designers fashion collections, presented by Bel Esprit (US). After its highly visible participation in Moda360’s New York installation in June 2014, the entire team at Linger Magazine is prepping for the introduction of its annual editorial initiative on the West Coast in the spring of 2015. The 2014 Themed Pictorial Challenge is currently underway and submissions are beginning to pour in.

The Themed Pictorial Challenge launched in April 2011 after Tiffany Tate, founder and editor-in-chief of Linger Magazine, decided to create an annual editorial challenge for creative talents in the fashion and beauty industries to join forces, display their talents cohesively and be featured exclusively on the cover and within the pages of Linger Magazine’s annual commemorative print issue.

During Linger Magazine’s initial involvement with Moda360 in New York City, Ms. Tate was asked directly by Deb Pokallus, CEO of Bel Esprit, to bring their artistic view on fashion to its Los Angeles installation. Ms. Tate knew then that the Themed Pictorial Challenge was a perfect way to feature emerging designers in an artistic way, yet playing a pivotal role in supporting Moda360’s vision of creating a new concept in fashion promotion.

“I was delighted to join forces. We pride ourselves as a go-to platform for emerging designers who have an edge and willfully create outside the box,” shared Tiffany Tate about Linger Magazine. “This partnership only strengthens our vision. The opportunity to work with Moda360, who shares our dedication to promoting emerging designers on a global platform, is a wonderful opportunity. Moda360 is a company who is changing the landscape of the fashion industry and I am honored to be a part of this monumental movement.”
