For Every You

Macy’s fall campaign, “For Every You,” features the power of fashion as self-expression and follows women on the journey to the ideal look to the soundtrack of Lizzo’s “Like a Girl.” Women choose an outfit for more than outward appearance, as a look can also express who they want to become while wearing it. Macy’s vast fashion selection gives women freedom to express all parts of themselves and bring their inner dreams and aspirations into the world. Produced by Macy’s in collaboration with BBDO New York, the 30-second spot began airing across television and digital September 8, along with robust supportive content rolling out across digital and social.

Fall Fashion

This autumn, shoppers can seek out remarkable style and engage with key trends in a personal way. For women, greenery is the central hue for fall. Deep shades of kelly and olive reference the natural world and tones can be mixed and matched effortlessly. Varied textures add interest and dimension, like a snake and crocodile I.N.C. International Concepts pump. For a little more boldness, walk on the wild side with animal prints of every variety. From natural leopard on faux fur coats to neon hues of snake on Bar III dresses, pattern is king of the jungle this season. Try a new twist on plaid with bold color mixes and prints of all sizes, like a tweed Julia Jordan dress or a Vince Camuto plaid top and skirt with just the right hint of neon.

Midi lengths are key in skirts and dresses, like those from Tommy Hilfiger, especially when paired with oversized sweaters. Add some drama to a casual look with a voluminous sleeve or make the ultimate style statement with a Lauren Ralph Lauren head-to-toe plaid suit. Animal prints make marks on everything from handbags to Calvin Klein intimates, while statement earrings approach the trend with tortoiseshell prints. Western accents adorn shoes, hats and saddle bags with buckles, fringe and whipstitch details. Chunky sole sneakers, like those from DKNY, keep any look feeling fresh and new arrivals shoes from Sam Edelman offer something for every style.

In menswear, gray matters this fall. From sleek tailored suiting in windowpane patterns by Tommy Hilfiger to streetwear sets by Ellesse, the head-to-toe monochromatic look is sure to turn heads. For a standout moment, try a silver metallic moto trucker jacket from Michael Kors or an abstract printed trench from Alfani. The modern utility trend also offers new twists on menswear favorites. A military jacket from Levi’s is an effortlessly cool take on the trend, while a head-to-toe wine-colored camo suit from I.N.C. International Concepts is the ultimate statement.

Fall Beauty

Embrace your fearless self this fall and don’t be afraid to play with color! Bold and bright eyes are the hottest beauty trend this season. Pack on the pigment with Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Palette or clean beauty brand PÜR’s Barbie Endless Possibilities Pressed Pigments Palette. Use the same shade on the lower lash line to amp up the wow factor! On days where you want to up the ante but don’t have the time, try the season’s hottest lip trend, the flame lip. It’s great to wear on its own and make a chic bold statement. Channel your inner French girl with Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in 080 Red Smile or Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder in 954 Radical. This modern twist on the classic red lip brings orange hues out to play.

The Glenlivet is breaking convention and encouraging consumers to rethink traditions within the single malt category with the release of a dynamic new expression: The Glenlivet 14 Year Old. Featuring sweet and fruity aromas, the newest liquid is the first in The Glenlivet portfolio to introduce single malt whisky selectively finished in high-quality ex-Cognac casks to the U.S. market.

The Glenlivet’s newest expression featuring the brand’s signature citrus notes and creamy smoothness, with a raisin-rich finish from select ex-Cognac casks, is now available exclusively in the U.S.

The Glenlivet 14 Year Old sees The Glenlivet’s iconic style of citrus and floral notes and creamy smoothness complemented by the sumptuous influence of select ex-Cognac casks, which include moist raisins, chocolate and licorice, to deliver a deep and intense experience. The new liquid is the latest step in the distillery’s quest to inspire and open up to a new generation of whisky drinkers through bold and unconventional flavor combinations and finishing techniques.

With The Glenlivet 14 Year Old we’ve created something truly iconic that embodies our incredible legacy while putting a modern spin on single malt whisky that’s been selectively finished in former Cognac casks,” said Sona Bajaria, Vice President of Marketing, The Glenlivet, Pernod Ricard USA. “The Glenlivet brand is built on a passion for extraordinary products and 14 Year Old was created with that in mind. We are confident consumers will love this new liquid as much as we do.

The Glenlivet 14 Year Old will be exclusively available in the U.S. beginning in July 2019, where it will be a welcome addition to the thriving single malt Scotch whisky category and expand consumer choice as demand for new flavor profiles continues to grow.

We crafted The Glenlivet 14 Year Old with the curious single malt community in mind,” said Alan Winchester, The Glenlivet Master Distiller. “The beauty of the whisky lover is that their palate is always evolving, searching for the next flavor experience, and we’re proud to add this delicious aged single malt, with portions selectively finished in ex-cognac casks, to our portfolio. The blend of rich Cognac-cask flavor influences and our signature fruity, smooth style are guaranteed to captivate single malt drinkers looking to explore.

“Having spent time with whisky drinkers in the U.S., you can see the passion for original single malt innovation growing, and we’re confident The Glenlivet 14 Year Old will be a success with those looking to explore new flavor frontiers,” continued Winchester.

To sync with the bold, new color of The Glenlivet 14 Year Old’s packaging, The Glenlivet has teamed up with the Purple Heart Foundation to give back to those who serve by encouraging consumers to join them in raising a glass to service members.

For every bottle of The Glenlivet 14-Year-Old sold to participating retailers from now through December 31, 2019, The Glenlivet will donate $1 to The Purple Heart Foundation, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $50,000, up to $100,000.

Soaring 65 stories above Victoria Dockside, a new art and design district on the Kowloon waterfront, Rosewood’s glass tower enhances Hong Kong’s skyline.

Winner: La Reserve Paris Hotel and Spa – Restaurant Le Gabriel, Paris, France
The gilded dining room of the two-Michelin-starred restaurant in a 19th-century mansion-turned-hotel makes an unforgettable impression.

Best Bar: A hotel bar that offers a social meeting spot where innovative drinks, lively mixologists and servers, and an enticing atmosphere create a “see and be seen” buzz.
Winner: Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club – Le Sirenuse Champagne Bar, Surfside, Florida, U.S.

Guest experiences focus on the outdoors, such as guided glowworm walks, stargazing, nocturnal animal viewing and tree planting.

Best Family Program: A property offering children’s programs, from creative activities to educational endeavors and active adventures.
Winner: Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Families bond over horseback riding, boogie boarding, snorkeling and more, then relax at the pool or spa (with a kids’ treatment menu). The Kids’ Club offers 4- through 12-year-olds storytelling, movies, and games, while teens enjoy karaoke, pool tables, and dancing. Family accommodations lie near the pool and beach, and a “baby concierge” stocks everything from strollers to bottles – and arranges sitters too.

Best Wellness Program: A hotel focusing on mind/body balance through excellence in nutrition or diet programs, fitness and wellness classes, spa experiences, and inspiring location.
Winner: Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa, Tucson, Arizona, U.S.
Miraval helped pioneer the modern spa resort, and its flagship property continues to lead the way. Guests choose from more than 100 workshops, classes, and activities that include cooking, private and group workouts, beekeeping, and even equine therapy. Healthy gourmet meals fuel guests’ paths to wellness, as do rituals including massages and acupuncture at the Life in Balance Spa.

Best Virtuoso Newcomer: The most noteworthy network addition from April 2018 onward.
Winner: Montage Los Cabos, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
This contemporary retreat offers an abundance of memorable experiences. Guests sip mezcal and dine at the two restaurants, play the 18-hole golf course, enjoy Baja-inspired spa treatments, and snorkel and paddleboard in Santa Maria Bay – a marine sanctuary and one of the area’s few swimmable beaches.

Best Virtuoso Hotel Ambassador: An executive (other than general manager or managing director) who embodies Virtuoso’s power of human connection and strives for the mutual benefit of network advisors and their brand, property, or properties.
Winner: Carlos Quereda, Querido Representation Co.
During his decade-long tenure at the Marbella Club on Spain’s Costa del Sol, Quereda was inspired by cofounder Count Rudolf von Schönburg’s ritual of greeting guests and staff, converting them into lifelong friends of the hotel. Quereda brings this hospitality to life to satisfy travelers’ quests for unique properties that embody local traditions and soul.

Hotelier of the Year:An experienced manager who demonstrates leadership and vision, a passion for the industry, a commitment to Virtuoso advisors, and an appreciation for detail.
Winner: Amanda Hyndman, Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London, U.K.
Hyndman’s career spans more than 30 years and some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, including Mandarin’s Bangkok flagship, where she was the first female general manager. She arrived at the Hyde Park property in June 2018, one week after a two-year renovation was completed – and two days before a fire shuttered the hotel. Hyndman transitioned staff to help with rebuilding, weathering the nine-month closure with no layoffs. The hotel reopened last spring with Hyndman and her kindness and commitment at the helm.

Adult party throwers (21 years and older) may write in to tell Captain Morgan and Devine why they need to “crash” their house party by following and commenting on the Captain Morgan brand’s Instagram account,@CaptainMorganUSA, and using the hashtag #CaptainsNightInContest.

“With all the house parties happening this season, I challenge all my festive fans to give us the best reasons for coming to their holiday soiree because I’ve got my ugly sweater and frosted cookies ready,” said Devine. “I don’t know where the evening will take us, but one thing’s for sure, it’s going to be one helluva night in.”

Captain Morgan and Devine will then select a winner and transform one holiday house party into the ultimate “Captain’s Night In,” with bright lights on the outside, holiday sweaters galore, a life-sized snow globe and more.

“Throughout the holidays, we know people enjoy fun times with friends right in the comfort of their own homes,” said Linda Bethea, Vice President of Captain Morgan.”Whether they’re competing for the ugliest holiday outfit or playing yuletide games, holiday party goers are staying in to enjoy the evening responsibly. So, it’s only fitting that we deploy Adam to bring fun to these festivities in a way that only Captain Morgan can for those hosting the best holiday house party.”
