DPA Gift Suite, a Cannes High­light

Cannes Market News - - NEWS -

NATHALIE DUBOIS’ Cannes gift­ing suite has been awash with stars like Su­san Saran­don and Cate Ca­plan. This year, three Carl­ton suites were filled with a range of prod­ucts, with one suite ded­i­cated to exquisitely wrapped Ja­panese prod­ucts, from pre­mium green teas to beau­ti­ful, un­treated croc­o­dile skin bags, from the Zann Group. Other high­lights in­cluded some of the sex­i­est un­der­wear on the mar­ket, from Dutch de­signer, Mar­lies Dekkers. Much fa­vored by celebri­ties, Dekkers com­bines sexy ma­te­ri­als and straps to cre­ate a so­phis­ti­cated S&M look, and she has de­vel­oped a lux­u­ri­ous swimwear line. Other de­signs we loved, in­cluded jew­el­ery cre­ations from the Mom & Pop la­bel Libe & Lulle. Cre­ated on the kitchen ta­ble and sold on­line, the idea is sim­ple and based around a sil­ver rope of ma­te­rial that wraps around the wrist, and dan­gles across the back of the hand, cul­mi­nat­ing in a leaf and pearl de­sign, and other mo­tifs. There were both ex­pen­sive and af­ford­able de­signs avail­able, like the beau­ti­ful can­dles in a glass, that sell for only ten eu­ros, from Les Bou­gies des Char­roux, or the pop­u­lar Téo Jas­min bags, cush­ions and purses, fea­tur­ing the French bull­dog and his friend, Jas­mine, the cat. For some­thing more lux­u­ri­ous, new de­sign­ers on show this year in­cluded the lux­ury sportswear shirt brand Leverdez, whose elegant but sporty shirts sell for around 400 Eu­ros a piece. Swiss watch brand Char­riol ex­hib­ited E6,000 watches as well as bracelets made from its sig­na­ture twisted rope. Fash­ion de­signer Farah Kahn dressed stars from the suite. Per­haps most use­ful, Elixirs & Co. pre­sented a se­ries of Bach Flower Rem­edy prod­ucts, us­ing the es­sen­tial flower reme­dies, that are per­fect for get­ting through Cannes. The 2016 edi­tion of the suite is ded­i­cated to all vic­tims of ter­ror­ism. LF
