Moulin Rouge to cast dancers in Australia

Eagerly awaited, this casting will take place under the expert eye of Janet Pharaoh, artistic director of the Moulin Rouge and assisted by Erik Sorensen, resident choreographer. The artistic team will travel to Australia to pick up new talents who will perform on the stage of the famous cabaret, which has been illuminating Paris since 1889!

Castings will be based on special requirements: strong classical dance training as well as criteria specific to the Moulin Rouge: minimum size (5feet 9inches for girls and 6feet 1inches for boys), well-balanced figure but also and mainly the personality, the charisma and the capacity to assimilate choreographies with class and distinction! And for the boys, a well-proportioned muscled body!

After this casting, the Moulin Rouge will welcome the selected artists into the current show ‘Féerie’, expanding its team of dancers. The lucky dancers will travel to Paris for a month rehearsals and will join the team of 80 artists, from 14 different nationalities.

Among the artists, Aussies dancers from the Moulin Rouge gives the candidates advices: “Show your love and joy for the music and dance, this is what the audience see every night! Use your whole body in full lenght in all movements. Showing your discipline and willing to hard work with a smile is what could make you a Moulin Rouge dancer. And most importantly show off your personality. Break a leg!”

“Féerie” is an amazing 2 hour-long show with 1000 costumes of feathers, rhinestones and sequins, sumptuous settings in shimmering colours, a 60 tonne-water aquarium and the famous French Cancan… An exceptional show which welcomes every year more than 600.000 spectators from all around the world!

The Moulin Rouge will celebrate its 130th Anniversary in 2019!

Diesel: Only The Brave Street, Les Twins Announcement

Diesel Parfums is thrilled to announce Les Twins as faces for the new fragrance for men, Diesel Only The Brave Street.

The brand turns the street into a new stage for bravery and casts the most famous urban street dancers in the world to star in its new campaign!

New Style Hip Hop dancers Larry and Laurent Bourgeois hail from Sarcelles, a Paris suburb. From street kids to street icons, they have created their own style. They were the main characters in the Michael Jackson Immortal Tour by the Cirque du Soleil in 2011. They have toured several times with Beyoncé, including during her Coachella performance in 2018. Les Twins also won the first World of Dance TV competition in 2017, despite Laurent’s getting injured during the semi-finals. They are brave role models for a new generation.

“As New Style hip-hop dancers, we represent street culture,” they say. “But our art is more than just dance. When we dance, we go beyond our limits to become the best. The street taught us to be good with others, but hard on ourselves.”

Diesel’s new fragrance for men is a fresh take on what it means to be brave: to start from scratch, to dare, to dream, and to keep on going. To express yourself without limits. The street forges you to become who you want to be. To be a proud individual, while at the same time being part of a larger tribe. To see life from all possible perspectives.

Diesel Only The Brave Street will soon be available. Be ready to take over the street!

Kennedy launches new brand campaign

Luxury watch and jewellery retailer Kennedy have released their new 2018 campaign. Titled ‘Night & Day,’ the campaign has a cinematic appeal to it with black and white imagery that enhances the innate, luxury element that is key for Kennedy and its watch and jewellery brands.

The languid lines of the human form gently draw the audience in, as their eye travels to the hero timepiece.

“Kennedy is the leading watch and jewellery retailer in Australia and the campaign is a strategic step in developing further brand awareness and loyalty. As a retailer we have the ability to showcase our brands in an innovative, alluring way. We are excited to have brought leaders in Australia’s creative talent industry together to collaborate on a campaign that creates a new perspective and reflects the classic yet contemporary Kennedy style; one not usually followed by traditional watch and jewellery advertising campaigns,” says Martin Rainer, Managing Director at Kennedy.

Captured in a studio with minimal elements to detract from the alluring talent and equally appealing product, Australian photographer Darren McDonald flew from New York to work on the campaign, bringing his extensive fashion campaign experience to the project while adding his own signature hallmark to the work.

The campaign will run nationally in leading fashion and lifestyle publications, premium outdoor and digital channels.

Fendi Fall Winter 2019 Haute Couture

In an opulent guessing game of texture and technique, the FENDI Couture Fall/Winter 2018-2019 Collection dances between sublime tradition and new realities.

Innovation illuminates a precious future, where the Orphist approach to ‘pure painting’ is tempered by Neoclassical rigour. Silhouettes embrace the body in cages of latticework; opaque and diaphanous, they construct a bold, evocative line. An impasto rainbow palette softens through shades of apricot, lavender and sherbet pink.

Exquisite fabrics blur the lines of memory as frayed organza and fringed chiffon become trompe l’oeil surfaces and sintesi mosaics or gheronato chevrons create featherweight shells of tufted cashmere, shaved mink and shearling.

Ballerina gowns and opera coats are remixed in a swirl of rosettes, lace and hand-painted embroidery, whilst the tailleur is trimmed in ermine or encrusted sequins. Through meticulous collage, waterfalls of Mongolian lamb and marabou meet a shock of tulle.

Via high-frequency printing, engineered garments and jewelled Minaudière clutches are embossed in glossy layers of thermoplastic to mimic marble, malachite and mother-of-pearl. Kinetic pumps combine this technique with a lampshade heel stacked with maple, perspex and horn.
