La Prairie Launches The Art of Luxury at Sydney Airport

There really is nothing worse than stepping off of a flight with jet-lagged skin. Fortunately, thanks to our favourite luxury skincare brand La Prairie, there’s now a way to help conquer dehydrated skin and unwind pre-flight if you’re departing from Sydney. 

Partnering with Heinemann Australia, La Prairie has launched The Art of Luxury which will offer guests an indulgence pampering experience at Sydney Airport for the next few months until September 2019.

“We are bringing a unique immersive experience to Sydney Airport to allow guests to select either a luxury treatment in a private suite or an express service that can be performed on counter,” says La Prairie Managing Director Australia and New Zealand, Rosi Fernandez.

For those who want to ensure their complexion is healthy and hydrated once they reach their destination, 30-minute long luxury treatments (which include a 10-minute consultation) will on offer in a private beauty suite. Your therapist will select a treatment from the Platinum Rare, Skin Caviar or White Caviar collections that addresses your own skincare needs and concerns. To get your skin flight ready, the treatment involves deep cleansing, a facial massage and application of decadent La Prairie products. 

 

The White Caviar collection is one of the luxurious offerings used for La Prairie’s luxurious pre-flight treatments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While you’ll have to pay to experience the ultimate pre-flight pampering with La Prairie’s luxury treatments, a number of express at-counter services are complimentary. 

The express 10-minute offerings are guaranteed to help you unwind and prepare for your upcoming flight too. Discover the art of beautiful skin as a La Prairie selects and applies the perfect ritual that will leave your skin revitalized and glowing. Transiting and need a quick pick-me-up? The Instant Eye Revive will do the trick as La Prairie’s luxurious skincare smoothes, firms and brightens as you are indulged with a signature eye massage. 

All treatments need to be reserved online (you can click here to book).

Dior heads to Marrakesh to Show Breathtaking Cruise 2020 Collection

The show notes for Dior’s Cruise 2020 collection opened with a quote by Moroccan writer Tahar Ben Jelloun – “Culture teaches us to live together, teaches us that we’re not alone in the world, that other people have different traditions and ways of living that are just as valid as our own.”

Therefore it was fitting that creative Maria Grazia Chiuri chose Marrakesh as the breathtaking backdrop for her latest collection.  

The breathtaking setting for Dior’s Cruise 2020 showing.

According to Dior Maria Grazia Chiuri has always had her heart set on establishing creative exchanges with African cultures and with her new Cruise collection the creative director she sought to create a dialogue with the real and imagined landscape of Morocco, at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, Europe and Africa, as a dream destination for artists, poets, writers and eternal adventurers.

To bring her dream to life Maria Grazia Chiuri turned to a number of collaborators to create the collection which she has described as “a world map.” Anthropologist Anne Grosfilley helped explore the remarkable origins and evolution of wax print fabric which is central to the collection.  In her book African Wax Print Textiles, she refutes simplistic interpretations. Her book presents fabrics like a family tree: her research reveals the multiple origins and constant evolution of Wax, the result of a long history between Europe, Asia and Africa. Maria Grazia Chiuri then collaborated with the Uniwax factory and studio (in Ivory Coast) to reinterpret Dior codes by integrating them into the weave of the fabric for a special edition.

Pathé Ouédraogo – aka Pathé’O, one of Africa’s leading designers – designed a special shirt for the collection which pays tribute to Nelson Mandela. Through his work, Ouédraogo supports fashion that is entirely Made in Africa. His emblematic shirts in bright colours and bold prints have become symbolic of the African continent and its cultural diversity.

Take a look at the looks from the collection in the gallery below.
