Gabriela Hearst’s Chloé debut collection at Beijing SKP Boutique

French Maison Chloé’s Beijing SKP boutique has become an immersive setting timed to the arrival of Gabriela Hearst’s debut collection. 

At its heart, the narrative of the space belongs to both their founder, Gaby Aghion, whose birthplace of Egypt is echoed in a warm desert palette; and to Gabriela Hearst, through earthy textured tones recalling her years in Uruguay, South America.

Personality is expressed through tactile, natural materials that include cane, wood, natural fibres and terracotta. Combined, they represent a vision that is true to the Maison’s past and present.

A variety of vintage furnishings and bespoke pieces by local artisans selected by Gabriela Hearst further enhance this unique environment and establish a curated Maison style.

World Bee Day: Guerlain deepens commitment to protecting bees

A historic shoot featuring Angelina Jolie covered in bees – in an homage to photographer Richard Avedon – to exemplify her commitment to the groundbreaking, female beekeeping entrepreneurship program ‘Women for Bees’. 

Guerlain muse Angelina Jolie takes center stage for National Geographic and Guerlain in this ethereal portrait for #WorldBeeDay, shot by world-renowned photographer Dan Winters. Angelina Jolie is working with UNESCO and Guerlain on a Women for Bees initiative that will ultimately build 2,500 bee hives and restock 125 million bees by 2025 – while training and supporting 50 women beekeepers in their own operations.

By 2025, 2,500 hives will have been built within 25 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves and 125 million bees will have been restocked. The 50 women to graduate from the program will have been trained and supported in establishing their own beekeeping operations by the passionate team of OFA our partner in Bee preservation since 2015.

The groundbreaking shoot sees the actress covered in live bees in an homage to photographer Richard Avedon, drawing attention to the plight of bee populations around the world. In honor of World Bee Day, Dan Winters photographed Angelina using the same technique Richard Avedon employed for his iconic portrait, ‘The Beekeeper’ 40 years ago
