Gaultier's last Hermes collection ends Paris shows

PARIS – Fashionistas breathed a fatigued sigh of relief as the spring-summer 2011 ready-to-wear collections that took them from New York to London to Milan and finally to Paris for nine show-packed days wrapped up Wednesday with an equestrian show at French heritage saddle-maker Hermes that marked the end of designer Jean Paul Gaultier's seven-year tenure there.

As riders put their dressage horses through their paces in a chandelier-topped arena at the end of the catwalk, Gaultier paid homage to Hermes' long and illustrious history of leather-working with a collection of chic equestrian garb in buttery suede and calfskin.

The one-time enfant terrible of French fashion will continue to put out his signature line while a designer who cut his teeth at the crocodile-embossed sportswear line Lacoste takes over the reins at Hermes.

Cross-town rival Louis Vuitton, which began as a trunk-maker, sent out a cross-pollinated collection that combined glossy Chinese shapes with African safari motifs. The collection, Marc Jacobs' strongest for the brand for several seasons, shot the darkly sensual clothes with a stiff dose of self-mocking kitsch.

Miu Miu's woman embraced her inner contradictions, mixing demure pleated skirts with oversized leather jackets with exploding star appliques.

Red carpet-favorite Elie Saab toned down the glam factor with a relaxed 1970s-infused collection in peachy hues, while Russia's Valentin Yudashkin glammed it up with ultra-short bustier dresses for the jet-setting party girl set.

Other highlights of the City of Light's nine-day-long ready-to-wear marathon included a strong debut by Sarah Burton — the longtime deputy to designer Alexander McQueen, who was appointed to replace him following his suicide last February — and a spectacular fortieth anniversary show and after-party at a Paris circus by East-meets-West label Kenzo.

A 1970s spirit took catwalks in New York and Milan by storm, and though there was some retro hippy peace and love in a few Paris collections, the most salient trends to emerge from the City of Light were transparency and clean white looks. From Yves Saint Laurent to Givenchy, designers here cocooned opaque shorts, pants and little skirts with long skirts in sheer chiffon and tulle.

And while Milan was all about saturated jewel tones, there were few Paris collections that didn't open with an all-white look. Men's white button-down shirts, worn as dresses or morphed into capes or even little skirts, were also nearly omnipresent here.

There's a six-month-long respite before the next round of ready-to-wear collections, for fall-winter 2011-2012, which hits Paris in early March.

HERMES

It was hard to know where to look — at the models in fetching equestrian garb in supple leather, or the breathtaking dressage horses strutting their stuff at the far end of the catwalk.

Models in jodhpurs and bustiers in caramel-colored leather, with fringed suede ponchos thrown jauntily over their shoulders, tramped the catwalk — made, like the riding arena, out of wood chips — in equestrian boots. Flat-topped felt Seville riding school hats topped off all the looks, and riding crops competed with the brand's best-selling Kelly bags — served up for summer in leather and wicker — to be the season's top accessory.

There were touches of the kinky edge that designer Gaultier — who shot to global fame with Madonna's pointy-cone bra — has brought to the very classic and bourgeois label over the years, like the belts that wound around the models' torsos and fastened around their necks like, well, horse harnesses. Or any other harnesses you might think of. Ahem.

Despite the spectacular show, there was a whiff of sadness in the air over Gaultier's departure from Hermes.

"Jean Paul has brought so much to the house of Hermes, a light touch, new shapes even a bit of transgression," the label's CEO, Patrick Thomas, told The Associated Pss in a post-show interview. "He will be very much missed."

Gaultier called his work with Hermes a "love story."

But, he told a frantic scrum of reporters after the show, "like all love stories, it has an end."

LOUIS VUITTON

At first, it looked like just another Chinese-themed collection. But the set — stuffed lions on gleaming faux marble pedestals — set the tone for something much more interesting, a cross-cultural hybrid that mixed high-gloss Shanghai with the big game of the Serengeti plain.

Cheongsam dresses were served up in sequin zebra stripes and giraffes emblazoned Mao-collared pajama suits. Pencil skirts in jewel tone satin were paired with sweaters with sequined lions and wide, low-slung sequin belts that glimmered darkly like Chinese lacquer. Spaghetti-strapped gowns were hung with tassels or entirely covered in purple and fuchsia beaded fringe.

With Wednesday's collection, the label's celebrity designer, Marc Jacobs, managed to inject the collection's darkly seductive glamour with a dose of humor and self-aware kitschiness: You could almost imagine the models as high-class gangster molls from a 1970s-era Chinese mob movie with a cheesy plot but sumptuous costumes.

It was Jacobs' strongest collection for the French luxury supernova in several seasons — much better than fall-winter 2010-2011's ladylike 1950s looks in thick tweed that made the curvy supermodels look like frumps.

That said, it would have been nice to see Jacobs stick with last season's bodacious models, with their generous womanly forms, instead of the usual cast of teenage waifs that took back Vuitton's catwalk on Wednesday.

MIU MIU

Ever ambiguous, the Miu Miu woman inhabits the gray area between absolutes.

At first glance, the label's spring-summer 2011 woman appeared to be a demure bourgeois housewife in chemisier dresses with high necklines and skirts that hit beneath the knees. But on closer inspection, she really wasn't all that prim and proper.

The collection paired the satin dresses and pleated A-line skirts with oversized leather jackets in silver and gold lame with star-shaped appliques that looked like cartoon electric shocks.

"She's a good girl gone bad," said front-row guest Julia Restoin Roitfeld, the 30-year-old daughter of the editor-in-cheif of Vogue Paris. "With all that leather and the stars, it's a real mix between rock and roll and the goody-goody girl. I love that."

Shown in a wooden-plank-floored tent installed for the occasion in the gardens of Paris' Palais Royal, Wednesday's collection felt like a radical departure from last season's ultra-short dresses in wool felt, adorned with oversized flowers.

But at the heart, both winter's girly-girl in her too-short skirts and spring-summer's rock 'n' roll bourgeois shared the same ambiguous, Miu Miu spirit that lives in gray and embraces contradictions.

ELIE SAAB

Life was just peachy at Elie Saab, with an easy, breezy collection in dusty shades of orange.

The Lebanese designer — whose sequin-soaked goddess gowns have made him the go-to man for the red carpet — toned down the bling, sending out softer silhouettes with less sparkle than usual. (Still, Saab's legions of Hollywood fans can breathe easy: There were more than enough high-wattage gowns to see them through the awards season.)

His palette of muted tangerine, salmon and nectarine hues was unique, and a welcome change from the more vampy shades Saab normally favors, though how flattering it would actually look against the skin was up for debate.

Saab's shapes, too, were softer than usual, and it was clear that he'd come down with a case of the 1970s fever that spread through New York and Milan. His silk jersey gowns, cinched below the bust with gold chains, looked like they would have appealed to Farrah Fawcett, as would a pair of pretty jumpsuits.

"These were the colors and shapes of my youth, so they have a lot of meaning for me," Saab told The AP as a bevy of Lebanese clients clamored for a photo with the designer while strains of a medley of '70s hits sounded overhead.

The soundtrack had the audience grooving. Throughout almost the entire show, two ladies dressed in head-to-toe leopard print danced in place to the booming tunes.

VALENTIN YUDAHKIN

It was an A-list fashion crowd that descended on the Russian couturier's show. Fashion powerhouses including Paris Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld took in Yudashkin's glamazon collection — which looked sure to seduce jet-set party girls in Russia and beyond. The abbreviated bustier dresses, with sculptural hips of draped jewel-tone chiffon, were set for the dance floor and the artful gowns were international red carpet-ready.

Yudashkin, a jaunty, bow-tie-wearing designer who's been showing in Paris for decades, said he drew inspiration from dolls that come from a region near Siberia, and the influence of Russian folk motifs was palpable: A sharp skirt suit in drab, with a tomato-red belt, was channeling a chic Soviet uniform, while the flirty skits with sculpted hips looked like the traditional garb of Russian peasants of centuries past.

Gold hits record, set for best week in six months

LONDON (Reuters) – Gold rose to a third successive record high on Thursday, putting it on track for its strongest weekly performance in six months, as expectations for the Federal Reserve to prop up the economy undermined the dollar.

The Fed is widely expected to resume quantitative easing -- in which the central bank would buy government bonds for example and pump extra cash into the financial system to keep interest rates low -- which has pushed the dollar down 7 percent against a basket of currencies in the last month.

Gold, which usually benefits from dollar weakness due to its inverse relation with the U.S. currency, has gained nearly 10 percent in the same period.

Spot gold was last at $1,359.75 an ounce at 0938 GMT (5:38 a.m. EDT), up from $1,345.80 late on Wednesday, but down from an all-time peak of $1,364.60 struck earlier in the day.

The price has risen by 3.2 percent so far this week, its largest weekly rise since mid-April.

U.S. gold futures for December delivery hit a fresh record high at $1,366 an ounce, before easing slightly to show a 1 percent gain on the day at $1,361.00.

"We look at the reasons for holding gold and other precious metals and, above everything else, it is the idea of a store of value to protect against currency debasement," said Natixis strategist Nic Brown. "Whether you're undergoing quantitative easing or whether you're devaluing your currency against others, it all adds up to pretty much the same thing."

"As a consequence, governments are delaying any fiscal austerity, while monetary authorities are rolling out additional quantitative easing measures over and above the exceptionally low interest rates that are already in place, that is just good for gold."

SUPPORT FROM FUNDAMENTALS

Gold retreated from earlier highs after the world's third-largest producer of the metal, Anglogold Ashanti (ANGJ.J) said it had completed the buy-back of its hedgebook, previously the largest in the industry.

But on a supportive note for gold, the central bank in key consumer Vietnam saying it would consider granting permits for gold imports, which have been banned for over two years, if domestic prices rose "unreasonably high.

"People are going to focus on the fact that Asian physical market will be tight. Last time Vietnam opened the door to gold imports, gold went up $20. In percentage terms, it could translate into $30 today," said a Singapore-based trader.

In more fundamental news for gold, the World Gold Council said it expects central banks to be net buyers of gold in 2011, for the first time in nearly two decades.

Nervousness over the outlook for U.S. growth was heightened on Wednesday after a survey of private-sector employment showed a surprise contraction in September, which further unsettled investors ahead of Friday's key employment report.

"With expectations for quantitative easing high, data monitoring between now and the November 3 (Fed policy setting) meeting becomes even more significant," wrote UBS analyst Edel Tully in a note.

"The short-term direction of the US dollar, and therefore gold, will be influenced by tomorrow's US payrolls data: a positive or negative deviation from expectations will weigh heavily on market thinking about quantitative easing prospects."

Short-term U.S. Treasury yields are around record lows, while European equities (.FTEU3) dipped ahead of interest rate decisions from both the European Central Bank and the Bank of England later in the day.

The strength in gold extended to the other precious metals.

Spot silver hit a new 30-year high at $23.51 an ounce, and was last quoted at $23.41, up from $23.13.

Holdings in the iShares Silver Trust, the world'largest silver-backed, exchange-traded fund, rose to a fresh record high of 9,944.14 tonnes.

In comparison, holdings in the SPDR Gold Trust remained unchanged for two straight days.

Platinum group metals followed the rally in gold. Spot platinum rose to $1,723, its highest since mid-May and was last up 1.5 percent on the day at $1,721, while palladium hit a new nine-year peak at $602.50 and was last up nearly 4 percent at $600.50.

Kingstown introduce new P.0.S. material for ‘Simply Fitted Look’ range

Kingstown Furniture, the UK’s leading manufacturer of ready assembled bedroom furniture, has introduced new point of sale (P.O.S.) marketing material for its ‘Simply Fitted Look’ range, designed to help furniture retailers assist their customers to ‘simply’ select the right furniture for their bedroom.

The new POS package comprises an attractive A3 landscape acrylic display with a dispenser for A5 sales leaflets. The A5 leaflets feature attractive images of each of the new ‘Simply Fitted Look’ ranges – the Nicole, Louise and Michelle – together with details of the all the packages available to suit every room.The new P.O.S. material will be delivered to retailers shortly.

“Having identified a gap in the market for a less expensive way to create a fitted look bedroom, we launched three new ‘simply fitted look’ furniture ranges earlier this year”, said Geoff Brailsford, Group Sales Director for Kingstown. “And I’m delighted to report that all three finishes are selling extremely well.”

He continued…

“The key message is that all it takes is three ‘simple’ steps: 1. Measure your space; 2. Choose your option; 3. Place your order!

“There are thirty left-hand or right-hand packages to choose from and the purpose of the new P.O.S. material is to make it even easier, with the retailer’s support, for customers to make a decision and place an order straight away. This is the first time that we’ve offered such detailed POS material and we look forward to receiving feedback on it. ”

With over 30 years’ experience of furniture manufacture, Kingstown is committed to manufacturing high quality bedroom and lounge furniture here in the UK. With extensive, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities at Hull, East Yorkshire, the business is well placed to respond quickly to customer requirements.
