Five Things

Cupcakes & Cashmere - 1 hour 15 min ago

{Favorite salad in the city}

My morning walks are chilly now, and I'm reveling in my layers proving that even the tiniest change in weather can affect me in the most positive way. Our entire neighborhood is tangled in Halloween decorations, we've been making homemade soups for dinner these past few nights and my weekend will be spent starting to make room for the nursery. It's my favorite time of year and this one feels more special than ever before. Have a great weekend.

{The sweetest stationery gift from a friend}

{Homemade pie night: classic pumpkin + savory sausage}

{Go-to look as of late: ponytail + hoops}

Live Life

There’s nothing like the Day of the Dead and All Hallow’s Eve that gets you thinking about, well, death… but in a festive way. The all-out do everything you want to do, be everything you want to be, no matter how fantasical or insane. Then there are the people who lived the fullest, who touched our lives, made life for a lot of people better. This week as the fashion industry mourns the passing of Oscar de la Renta, we just have to stop and think for a second. How are we going to make our lives the most well-lived we can?

Feeling Nostalgic

Garance Doré - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 13:00

Quand j’étais petite, j’adorais les personnages Disney.


Le lapin d’Alice au Pays des merveilles ou l’ours du Livre de la Jungle (Balou pour les intimes !). Alors savoir que je peux continuer à afficher mon amour pour ces petites bêtes sous la forme d’une bague chic, l’air de rien, je trouve ça super cool.

Gerard Tully a réussi à créer un sentiment de nostalgie sans se perdre dans le labyrinthe (je file la métaphore) du design kitsch.

Et bien sûr, mes chouchous sont l’ours et le lapin !

Nicky Hilton Carries Chanel to Celebrate Her New Book

Nicky Hilton recently attended the launch party for her new fashion book, 365 Style, with a Chanel Tweed Boy Bag that we suspect might be a brand new addition to her collection. The shindig took place at her aunt Kyle’s boutique in Beverly Hills, and Nicky’s sister Paris was in attendance, as were cast members from both Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, naturally.

Reese Witherspoon In Tanya Taylor – Sandro Paris Store

Reese Witherspoon In Tanya Taylor - Sandro Paris Store

Reese Witherspoon stopped by the Sandro Paris Store in L.A. prior to hosting the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event in West Hollywood, California on Tuesday (October 21).

It’s not only her red carpet style I adore, it’s her street style too.

Here she delights wearing a pretty Tanya Taylor ‘Hannah’ dress in a vibrant green, black and white pattern.

The ultra-feminine fit-and-flare design would look great at just about any event – even this routine shopping trip.

Allowing the dress to be the focus of attention, she styled it with a black Saint Laurent bag, oversized shades and pointy Gianvito Rossi pumps.

My style crush continues.

A Beauty Minute with Michelle

Garance Doré - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:04

Le matin : Le truc le plus important en beauté, à part les cosmétiques, c’est d’être heureuse parce que ça se lit sur le visage. Vous aurez beau utiliser des tonnes de produits et de make-up, si vous êtes déprimée, ça ne marchera pas. L’autre truc, c’est le stress. C’est vraiment quelque chose qui a des effets désastreux sur la peau. C’est aussi pour ça qu’il faut choisir de très bons produits. Moi, par exemple, je vis à Manhattan, et c’est une ville très stressante. Il faut adopter une bonne hygiène de vie et essayer de maintenir le stress à son minimum.


A un moment donné, quand j’étais très jeune, je voulais devenir dermato. J’ai passé ma vie à lire plein d’études, j’ai vu les meilleurs dermatos de la planète. Je crois vraiment à la science de la dermato et je développe des produits de beauté depuis 10 ans, donc je me suis vraiment renseignée.

Les nettoyants qui coûtent très cher ne servent à rien, ils n’ont pas le temps de vraiment pénétrer, puisqu’on ne les laisse pas suffisamment longtemps sur la peau. Il vaut mieux utiliser quelque chose d’efficace et bon marché. Moi j’utilise le nettoyant moussant CeraVe, on le trouve au drugstore pour quelques dollars. Tous les dermatos le recommandent. Ensuite, j’applique le tonique Tata Harper que j’ai contribué à développer. Je l’aime beaucoup, il est hydratant sans boucher les pores et contient pas mal de vitamine C, donc idéal pour illuminer le teint. Je le conserve au frigo, comme ça, il est tout frais et c’est vraiment très agréable sur la peau.

Ensuite, je mets du SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic. C’est la meilleure barrière contre les radicaux libres – ce qui contribue le plus aux rides. C’est très riche en vitamine C et c’est bon pour les taches et l’acné. C’est vraiment un produit super complet. C’est vraiment important de protéger sa peau contre le radicaux libres. J’applique ensuite la crème hydratante CeraVe, qui hydrate en douceur. Il faut aussi penser à appliquer une protection solaire, sinon, tout le reste ne sert à rien, le soleil peut tout gâcher, il n’y a pas pire pour les rides. Donc écran solaire tous les jours. On ne trouve celui que j’aime qu’au Japon donc je demande à mes amis japonais de m’en rapporter. C’est une base blanchissante Chanel SPF 40. Moi, j’adore avoir la peau très blanche, et j’aime vraiment cette crème qui éclaircit le teint d’une ou deux nuances tout en protégeant du soleil. Pour ceux qui ne peuvent pas se procurer de produits au Japon, le meilleur équivalent , c’est la crème La Roche Posay Ultralight Mineral. Un écran solaire minéral, c’est ce qu’il y a de mieux, ça contient moins de produits chimiques et c’est plus efficace.

Ensuite, j’applique mon baume à lèvres préféré, le In Fiore Veloutée. Il est très épais, il suffit d’en mettre une noisette pour protéger et hydrater les lèvres. Je n’achète pas de soin contour des yeux spécifique, je mets juste de l’écran solaire partout. Mes crèmes, je les applique partout, sur les yeux, sur les lèvres. Mais franchement, je ne crois pas trop aux crèmes pour les yeux. Tout ce qu’on met sur son visage, on peut très bien le mettre autour des yeux. Moi, je me sers de mes crèmes pour tout.

J’adore le make-up, depuis toujours. On a fait des progrès incroyables en matière de maquillage et de soins pour la peau, et déjà ma grand-mère portait un make-up sublime. Moi, je ne suis pas du genre à me contenter d’une crème hydratante teintée et d’un gloss. Ma grande source d’inspiration make-up, ce sont les geishas. Je commence avec un baume pour les lèvres, une base géniale pour le lipstick. J’ai un make-up artist qui me fait un rouge à lèvres sur mesure. Je suis très exigeante sur la nuance précise que je veux. J’aime beaucoup le MAC Clear Lipglass, il n’y a pas besoin d’en mettre beaucoup parce qu’il est très adhérent, mais ultra-brillant.

Mon fond de teint préféré, c’est le Armani Luminous Silk, mais ce qui compte, c’est ce avec quoi on l’applique. J’ai collaboré avec Artisse, qui fabrique des pinceaux vraiment extra. Moi, j’utilise le Artisse brush #8 pour appliquer mon fond de teint, et le rendu est parfait, super uniforme. En général, je choisis quelques nuances plus claires que mon teint naturel. J’aime aussi beaucoup le look baby doll, avec les joues un peu rosées. Je me sers du pinceau #6 pour appliquer le Armani Blushing Fabric en Scarlotto. C’est un rouge très vif, que j’applique au pinceau, ce qui me permet de travailler le produit que j’utilise en toutes petites quantités. C’est tout en transparence, on a l’impression d’avoir vraiment le teint éclatant, comme si on sortait d’un cours de gym.

Je fais une fixette sur les longs cils noirs. J’ai la chance d’avoir des cils extra-longs. Je ne crois pas aux mascaras qui coûtent super chers, ceux qu’on trouve en drugstore offrent des résultats bluffants. Le meilleur que j’ai trouvé jusqu’à maintenant, c’est le Maybelline Illegal Length, pour des cils ultra-sombres, ultra-longs, genre effet biche. Mais ça ne fait pas un volume trop impressionnant. J’aime les produits qui gainent les cils et les séparent bien, je trouve que ça ouvre le regard. Avec un trait d’eye-liner noir au ras des cils pour les rendre très noirs et volumineux. Les eye-liners à pointe fine qu’on trouve en drugstore fonctionnent très bien.

Je trouve que les sourcils contribuent vraiment à encadrer le visage, donc j’en prends soin. J’ai les sourcils d’un noir japonais, alors que tous les crayons qu’on trouve aux US sont tous du même brun cendré. Les labos qui font les meilleurs crayons à sourcils sont tous au Japon. Moi, j’achète les miens chez Sunrise Mart, le marché japonais. Je m’offre un bol de riz par la même occasion, c’est plus sympa !

La poudre, c’est important, c’est ce qui fixe le make-up, qui va lui permettre de rester en place toute la journée. Si on en met trop, ça fait des pâtés, et si on a quelques rides/ridules, elle va instantanément se loger dedans : c’est le coup de vieux assuré. Mon truc, c’est de prendre une poudre ultra-fine qui est aussi lumineuse, pour ne pas plomber le teint. La meilleure, pour moi, c’est la Poudre Crystalline de Chanel.

Je suis aussi une adepte des traitements au laser. Je trouve que le Fraxel est une invention géniale. C’est assez radical, mais pas au point de brûler la peau. Avec Fraxel, en trois jours, il n’y a plus aucune trace. En trois mois, les tâches pigmentaires ont disparu, l’acné aussi, la peau est toute repulpée et réhydratée, elle favorise la synthèse du collagène. Ça fait une peau de bébé. Moi, j’en fais une fois par an, mais je crois que ça dépend du type de peau qu’on a, des rides, des dégâts causés par le soleil, des taches. En tout cas, pour moi, une fois par an, c’est parfait.

J’ai un coiffeur fabuleux, Danilo. C’est lui qui faisait les perruques complètement dingues pour Mugler, l’un des coiffeurs les plus respectés du milieu. Il est hyper créatif, il peut tout faire. Il me fait des coupes que la plupart des gens trouvent hideuses, mais que j’adore. On rit beaucoup, on essaie de faire le plus laid possible, c’est ce qu’on aime, que le résultat plaise ou non. Ces derniers temps, on expérimente le rasage, avec différents volumes et coupes. Et on essaie toujours d’incorporer des géométries variables. J’y vais une fois par mois.

Pour les soins capillaires, il y a Phylia de M. qui se concentre surtout sur le cuir chevelu et la racine des cheveux, en utilisant des ingrédients bio et naturels. Les cheveux deviennent vraiment hyper épais et sains, c’est dingue. Ils proposent aussi un complément alimentaire. Sinon, j’aime aussi les produits Oribe qui sentent super bons. J’utilise pas mal leurs produits coiffants, en plus du shampoing et après-shampoing. C’est très qualitatif. Je n’ai pas beaucoup de temps pour me coiffer, alors j’ai appris à être très rapide. Comme je ne suis super douée pour faire des coiffures trop sophistiquées, j’opte pour des coupes sympas mais faciles que je peux coiffer en cinq minutes.

Pendant la journée : J’adore les odeurs, donc dans mon sac, j’ai toujours MM Mink by Byredo et un mini-flacon de Tom Ford Santal Blanc. Sinon, mon lipstick, mon papier de riz Tatcha Rice Paper, et voilà.

Le soir : Je me méfie beaucoup des produits qui se disent issus de recherches poussées ou se veulent anti-âge. Le soir, je me démaquille avec de l’huile d’olive, ça retire vraiment tout. Ensuite, je me nettoie le visage avec le nettoyant moussant CeraVe avant d’utiliser Retin-A Micro. Je suis une adepte du Retin-A. C’est sûr, ça fait peler la peau au début, mais après, ça fait une peau incroyable. C’est vraiment un des produits dont l’efficacité a été prouvée pour lutter contre les rides et stimuler la production de collagène. Contre le temps, il n’y a rien de mieux que le Rétin-A. En revanche, il faut vraiment mettre un écran solaire quand on l’utilise. Et quand je n’applique pas le Retin-A, je mets ma crème hydratante CeraVe.”

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Red Carpet Fashion Awards - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:00

Mens 23 Oct

It was another busy night on the red carpet for the heroes of Hollywood. Here is a quick look at what they wore.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor joined Lupita Nyong’o for the opening of the Bally flagship store in London. Wearing a more casual look than we’ve seen from the usually suited and booted actor, this Bally look featuring a pinstriped blazer for added sharpness gets a rousing thumbs up from me.

Eddie Redmayne: Joining fellow Brit star Felicity Jones for the screening of their latest movie, ‘The Theory Of Everything’, the former model was decked out in Gucci once again, also working a semi-casual look. Donning a white dress shirt and camel ’60s sport trousers, the royal-blue plain-knit crew-neck sweater injects a touch of charm, with the sunglasses giving the look a cool finish.

Mens 23 Oct 2

Joshua Jackson: The handsome actor wore a steely-blue notched-lapel suit with a cheeky polka-dotted tie to the GQ Gentleman’s Ball, which apparently was a no-girls-allowed event, so no Diane Kruger on his arm.

Luke Evans: The Welsh actor opted for Bally basics, looking very fine in his casual look topped off with a leather bomber.

23 Oct Thurs 4

Andrew Garfield: The ‘Spiderman’ actor was also flying solo on the red carpet at the GQ event, where he was honoured. Still sporting that overgrown beard, he did scrub up well wearing a Dior Homme black two-button peak-lapel gold-silk-speckle wool suit styled with a crisp white cotton shirt, black wool tie, and black calfskin leather ‘Francois Premier’ derbies.

Zachary Quinto: The ‘Star Trek’ actor looked very smart in his midnight blue suit sans tie.

What Makes a "Basic" an "Essential"?

Cupcakes & Cashmere - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:00
I have a good understanding of the items that “every woman needs in her wardrobe” thanks to many, many years of reading women’s magazines. But, I’ll be frank: shopping for basics has always been a slog – I even created a test kitchen of sorts to try to find the best white t-shirt, blazer, and boyfriend jeans for those who were in the same boat as me. Because it’s unrealistic to do that sort of deep-dive investigation for every single basic, I asked co-founders Maggie Winter and Jac Cameron of AYR – a brand-new essentials line that has already gained a cult following – what makes an essential, well, essential. Here, the things they recommend what to look for when shopping for a piece with lasting power.   “The simplest things are truly sometimes the hardest to find.  Fit, fabric, and design details set “a basic” apart from “an essential."  A basic is something you can find anywhere.  The essential is the thing you can’t live without.  A well-made essential lasts forever – wear after wear, trend after trend.  It’s worth the investment, because you get so much value out of versatility.” - Jac and Maggie

 1. The Perfect Tank "The unexpected – and extra-versatile – thing about a tank is when it’s cut into an everyday shape, but in an elevated fabric. Look for a sleeveless t-shirt, or muscle tee, but in heavyweight silk crepe, so it will last forever. Bonus: you can dress it up or down."   2. The White Tee "A classic white t-shirt is a foundation piece of any wardrobe, because it easily transitions from casual to more dressy by swapping in a pencil skirt or tailored pant with your denim. Again, look for fabric choices. Like the perfect tank, we use a gorgeous heavyweight silk crepe, giving it a beautiful, fluid drape, but it isn’t so delicate that you can’t wear it week after week."   3. The Robe Coat "Fall is all about finding the perfect shell jacket to throw over anything. Really nice wools are usually beautifully finished and pressed which can give a slight shine to the fabric. We think that if a coat is finished with an intricate lining, it’s taken the extra step for the wearer. You have to look for drape, and soft, premium Italian wool can help with that. This is a piece you can wear three days a week, three seasons out of the year, three years from now."   4. The Skinny Jean "Two things that really set apart a premium jean from a subpar jean is the fabric and the fit. These two elements go hand in hand.  You want to make sure that when you put a jean on in the morning it looks the exact same when you take it off at the end of the day.  The Skinny in Jac's Jean is made out of premium denim that has a 5-component makeup. It has about 30% stretch and the recovery is incredibly superior - like a rubber band, ensuring the fit will maintain its shape throughout wear. Premium denim is built to last longer and wear better than cheaper qualities and is definitely a worthwhile investment."   5. The White Poplin "The perfect white poplin shirt is all about finding the right proportion – oversized but not bulky.  I would always size up or buy men’s white shirts, but the shoulders, armholes, and sleeves would be massive.  Look for a nice long shirttail hem that covers your bum, but a small, delicate collar and slim sleeves.  We’d also recommend a popover instead of a button-through, which provides a clean, easy fit."   6. The Rumpled Blazer "You can spot a great blazer when it has a strong tailored shoulder and fits slimly through the body.  Look for an unconstructed shape and clean lines. No closures or trims are important. Precision in both instantly elongates and slims the body. Also, look for a material that looks good with wrinkles. AYR’s Rumpled Blazer is made of rumpled British linen, so it doesn’t matter if you pack it in a suitcase or wear it all day for a week straight – it’s super low-maintenance."   7. The Chambray Shirt  "The grown-up chambray shirt doesn’t fit like your boyfriend’s. We took a new direction, with fabric that looks like chambray but falls like silk. The Clean Shirt is unbelievably soft Indigo Tencel that drapes like a silk blouse. Super-clean details elevate the basic to evolved classic."

Nicole Kidman In Shanghai Tang – ‘China Fashion Chic’ Event

Red Carpet Fashion Awards - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 11:06

Nicole Kidman In Shanghai Tang - 'China Fashion Chic' Event

Nicole Kidman attended the ‘China Fashion Chic’ fashion show during Shanghai Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 on Wednesday (October 22) in Shanghai, China.

Looking very tall and statuesque, the Australian actress wore a black long-sleeved high-neck gown with enriching embroidery from Shanghai Tang, which is inspire by a traditional cheongsam.

Dazzling with Fred Leighton jewels, Nicole commands your attention in this figure-hugging gown.

I would’ve loved this look had all of her blonde hair been pulled back into a less fussy bun, but that takes nothing away from this jaw-dropping look.

Can’t Wait For…

The Sartorialist - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 11:00

I was clicking around on Vogue.com yesterday when I noticed a preview for an in-the-works documentary on writer Joan Didion. In addition to being a great writer, Ms. Didion has always maintained such a captivating and intriguing personal style. So needless to say, I’m very excited for the release of this film. Not surprisingly, in one day alone donations to fund the documentary have already surpassed the project goal of $80,000.

 

Guess the filmmakers proved their point. There most certainly is a demand for this film.

The Cherry Blossom Girl - Charlotte Olympia Bogart 01

-

-

Je me suis accordée une petite pause bloguesque le temps d’un séjour au Japon pour aller voir famille et amis, mais j’ai encore quelques articles sur la Polynésie à partager avec vous ( en espérant que cela ne vous lasse pas trop ! )

Cela me semble une décennie en arrière quand j’y repense. J’ai déjà troqué maillots de bain et crème solaire pour manteaux et collants depuis un moment !

-

Je penses que mon amour pour la marque Charlotte Olympia ne vous est plus étranger. Certains auront aperçu sur Instagram ma collection grandissante de chaussures, mais aujourd’hui je voulais vous parler d’un sac.

La créatrice Anglaise vient de sortir une toute nouvelle collection de maroquinerie made in France, et m’a gentiment proposé de choisir le sac de mon choix. Etant fan de toutes les créations de Charlotte sans aucune exception, j’étais ravie d’un si beau cadeau !

Mon choix s’est arrêté sur le très beau “Bogart”.

Chaque sac de la collection intitulée ” Handbags For The Leading Lady ” porte le nom d’un acteur légendaire du grand écran. Il y a donc Bogart, mais aussi Brando, Gable et Astaire !

Des sacs chics, rétros et intemporels qui ont déjà un parfum de grands classiques.

Ce qui m’a particulièrement plu dans le Bogart, c’est le fait que ce ne soit pas juste un sac, mais aussi une paire de gants assortis.

Une idée tout à fait charmante qui met tout de suite dans le rôle d’une “Lady” !

I allowed myself me a short break, just the time to see family and friends in Japan, but here I am back on tracks, and I will be posting what I have left from French Polynesia very soon ( hoping you’re not bored with that already ).

It seems so far away when I think about it. It’s been a while now since I swapped my bath suits and sunscreen for coats and tights.

-

I think you all know my love for Charlotte Olympia now. Maybe a few of you saw my growing shoes collection on Instagram, but today I wanted to talk about a bag !

The British designer just launched a new leather handbags collection, and kindly offered me to choose the bag of my choice. Beeing a fan of anything that Charlotte creates, I was delighted with such a beautiful gift !

I immediately fell in Love with the Bogart.

Each bag in the collection entitled ” Handbags For The Leading Lady” is named after a legendary actor of the silver screen. So there is Bogart, but also Brando, Gable and Astaire !

Chic, retro and timeless bags that already have everything of the classics !

What I particularly liked with the Bogart is that it’s not only a bag, but also a matching pair of gloves.

A very charming idea that immediately puts you in the role of a Lady !

Get The Look: Dianna Agron’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event Hair & Makeup

Red Carpet Fashion Awards - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 10:31

Dianna Agron - CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund EventCelebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell and celebrity hairstylist Christian Wood worked with Dianna Agron for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event on Tuesday.

MAKEUP ARTIST GEORGIE EISDELL

Georgie explains her beauty inspiration: “For Dianna at the CFDA/Vogue event, I wanted a clean and effortless look that was modern.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Georgie started by prepping Dianna’s skin with IS Clinical Hydra Cool Serum and Orlane Super Moisturizing Light Cream.

Next she evened out Dianna’s skin with Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick. To give her skin a beautiful glow, she powdered with La Mer The Powder and then used Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette on the high points of her face to give her that perfectly illuminated skin.

On the apples of her cheeks, Georgie used Tom Ford Cheek Color in Frantic Pink.

On Dianna’s eyes, she washed over her lids with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette very lightly to create a glow, then applied two layers of YSL Faux Cils Mascara in Black and added individual Stilazzi Lashes for extra length and depth. She defined Dianna’s brows with Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Warm.

Finally, Georgie used NARS Lip Lacquer in Baby Doll for the perfect pout.

HAIRSTYLIST CHRISTIAN WOOD

Christian explains his inspiration: “I wanted to give the vintage-feeling dress a modern, sleek, tougher edge. A slicked-back deep side part with a simple low twist at the back was what we decided on.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Dianna washed and conditioned her hair with Fekkai Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner. This gave a smooth, moistened base to the hair to make it malleable to work with.

While the hair was wet, Christian added a very generous amount of Oribe Gold Lust Serum throughout and used a tail comb to place the deep side part.

Next he used a Mason Pearson Brush to brush the hair as tightly as possible into a low ponytail and secured it with an elastic. He then twisted the ponytail into a knot at the nape of the neck and secured it with bobby pins to hold in place. Oribe Superfine Hairspray smoothed out any flyaways and gave the hair a subtle hold.

Lastly, he placed Fekkai Sheer Sculpt Gel on the tip of his finger and gently layered the product on the part and various other sections of the hair. This added a form of highlight that picked up under the light and gave a glossier, sleeker appearance.

Halle Berry Reviving Scandale Lingerie

BoF - The Business of Fashion - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 10:27
NEW YORK, United States – What’s in a bra? Femininity, sexiness and self-empowerment, says Halle Berry, who is launching a lingerie line she says will do it all. The Oscar-winning actress is reviving Scandale, a lingerie label born in France in 1932. “We’ve taken this brand and revamped it,” Berry said in an interview Thursday. “But we’ve kept all the qualities of the Parisian sort of style intact.” The collection of 10 bras and panties will be sold by Target, and while “rich with history and heritage,” will boast “a very good price,” said Berry, who, beneath her lacy dress … More

Kering Sales Bolstered by Puma as Gucci Declines

BoF - The Business of Fashion - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 10:27

Oct. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Kering SA reported third-quarter revenue that met analysts’ estimates as growth in the sports and lifestyle unit offset the effects of weaker Chinese spending on sales of Gucci handbags.

Revenue climbed 3.3 percent to 2.6 billion euros ($3.29 billion), Paris-based Kering said today in a statement after European markets closed. Analysts predicted 2.59 billion euros, according to the median of 17 estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Sales climbed 4.4 percent on a comparable basis.

“Luxury activities held firm in a complex economic environment, thanks to a strong sales uptrend in our network of directly operated stores,” Chief Executive Officer Francois- Henri Pinault said in the statement, adding that sport and lifestyle products showed positive sales trends, boosted by marketing at Puma. “Faced with uncertain market conditions, we remain vigilant.”

Kering, which this week named new CEOs at the Bottega Veneta, Brioni and Christopher Kane brands, said in July operating performance would improve in the second half of 2014 and it forecast a return to positive revenue trends, including at Gucci. Luxury-goods makers including LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA however have recently reported softer demand.

Fewer Chinese tourists are shopping in Hong Kong because of pro-democracy protests, while fighting in Ukraine and the resulting sanctions have depressed Russian spending in Europe. Worldwide sales of personal luxury goods will rise 2 percent this year, the slowest pace since 2009, Bain & Co. estimated this month.

Gucci sales fell 1.9 percent on a comparable basis, compared with the 0.5 percent drop anticipated by analysts. Revenue at Puma, which is trying to reposition itself as a sports-performance brand, rose 6.2 percent, compared with a 3 percent gain predicted by analysts.
