John Barrett is widely well-regarded within the industry for providing the ultimate luxury salon experience, with the highest standards for excellence in artistry and service. The debut of the new salon expands upon this foundation, with the infusion of fresh, inspired artistic talent, innovation in hair, spa, and nail services, as well as a tightly edited selection of the most coveted and inventive beauty products. The salon will also feature exclusive collaborations and a curated selection of luxury merchandise suited to the Bond Street clientele.

The Bond Street salon is an architectural masterpiece, with a rich, storied history set in Manhattan’s cultural epicenter of art, fashion and design,” says Jim Hedges, CEO of John Barrett Holdings LLC. “It so appropriately captures the emerging vision for our brand, leading us into the next chapter of growth that will elevate the standard in the luxury salon category.”

Bond Street Salon Design

The former site of the Bouwerie Lane Theater, the landmark building was once home to world-renowned painters, composers, screen sirens, musicians, and artists such as Lauren Hutton, Jane Russell, Pearl Bailey, Brice Marden and Helen Hays.

Designed by notable architect Daniel Romualdez, the new 2,200 square feet salon is modern, plush, and luxuriously appointed. The stylish space retains its original architectural splendor with a nod to its historical significance, modernized with a blend of opulent materials found throughout the two-story space. Here you’ll find brushed pewter, custom-chrome finishes flanked with sleek mirrors, glossy black wood trim, and a punch of color from the brand’s signature terrazzo lavender floors. Hand-oiled, smoke stained oak floors with a smooth, satiny finish are mixed into the flooring design as well, in both the color and treatment rooms.

The sunbathed salon features a main floor with ten stations for cut and style and a ground level punctuated with eleven color stations and three manicure and pedicure stations. Dual wash areas are accented with silver-stroked ceilings and a glowing light cove for balanced illumination. Changing and rest areas feel posh and intimate.

The atelier-like environment is part salon, part boutique and part exhibition space, offering clients a spectacular array of exclusive merchandise and art, housed within custom glass and polished chrome vitrines scattered throughout the space. Tom Ford Beauty is the featured color cosmetic brand and is used exclusively by the resident makeup artists for makeup applications and lessons. A full styling station is tucked away on the main floor for brow and lash services.Tom-Ford-Beauty

We are creating a 360-degree experience to deliver new and innovative services, spa treatment protocols, and technologies that haven’t been available before,” says Hedges. “The salon will be a place of discovery and engagement, enabling us to expand into different luxury categories, and reinvent the salon experience beyond anything that currently exists.”

The new salon is one of many John Barrett locations planned to open across the country in the coming year. “Demand for our services continues to increase each successive year, so this comes at the perfect time,” says Barrett. “Nothing excites me more than spreading the magic we have created at the flagship over the years and embracing the downtown style and vitality of Bond Street. It is this energy that will fuel the next phase of our expansion in New York and across the country.

800x536xkate-moss-stuart-weitzman1.jpg.pagespeed.ic._RH8f0yCjB

Elegance undone, imbued with unmistakable sex appeal, inspired by the feeling of freedom and the warmth of the sun. Kate Moss strips down (yet again), literally and figuratively, in Stuart Weitzman’s Spring 2014 ad campaign to reveal the definitive essence of effortless summer style. Photographed again by Mario Testino, in keeping with what is now an iconic visual vocabulary, the campaign invokes a sun-kissed and sensual energy, hinting at long, languid days in St. Tropez, with luxury footwear that seduce from day to night.

Minimal make-up, wet hair and barely-there cover-ups enhance this laid-back, luxe Bohemian look and provides a glimpse of the supermodel at her most beautiful. (She’s the only woman I know that looks absolutely phenomenal naked.) Sublime simplicity is a key theme for the new Stuart Weitzman collection, evidenced most distinctly with the introduction of THE NUDIST. Sexy, strappy, sleek, minimal – this sandal is as close to bare as a fashionable foot can get.

Moss, who debuted as the face of the Stuart Weitzman brand in the Spring 2013 ad campaign, was chosen because of her unparalleled status as a global style icon. Moss exudes a sense of style and confidence that every woman aspires to emulate and in 2014, she is walking in Stuart Weitzman shoes.

The international advertising campaign will launch in the United States, Italy, France, England, Canada, Dubai, Germany, Spain and Asia. Outdoor advertising (billboards and kiosks) will run in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Milan, Paris and Hong Kong. Behind-the-scenes video and additional creative content will be featured on www.stuartweitzman.com and in Stuart Weitzman boutiques worldwide.

On the evening of Thursday 10th October 2013, London’s cool crowd and special VIP guests gathered at the London Film Museum for the ultimate birthday party to celebrate the imminent 180th anniversary of edgy make-up brand, Rimmel London. The evening was hosted by longtime brand ambassador (and the main face of the brand) Kate Moss, Singer Rita Ora and rock-and-fashion progeny, Georgia May Jagger. Incredibly enough, trend setting Rimmel London is one of the world’s oldest beauty brands having been the fashion-forward inventor of the hip London look since 1834. Aptly, the party was hosted at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden, just a few meters away from the Strand where the first Rimmel headquarters was located back in 1860.

This must-not-be-missed, invite-only event was an incredible reflection of Rimmel’s cutting-edge style – past, present and future. The fashion elite partied with Rimmel ambassadors Kate Moss and Georgia May Jagger, who arrived in authentic London style in Rimmel-branded black cabs. Guests also witnessed a unique fashion show and enjoyed a surprise performance from the London’s hottest music artist, Rita Ora, who was (in early September) announced, is the latest style icon to collaborate with Rimmel.  With her widely followed and truly unique sense of British style, Rita Ora will brings the perfect edge and glamour to the brand through her new ‘must have’ color collection. Taking inspiration from the looks that has turned her into such a media magnet, Ora will work with Rimmel London to create what is expected to be most trendy & stylish exclusive lip and nail shade color collection of the season, to be released as in March 2014 for the spring/summer season, ensuring that Rimmel is beginning the next 180 years with a bang.

In the world of Stuart Weitzman, “sexy” means being comfortable and confident in your own skin, and the campaign captures this essence in a natural, classic, chic way while clearly showcasing the new season’s lust-worthy boot styles.

While Moss’s style has been inspirational and aspirational for years, her edgy aesthetic resonates now more than ever as fall runways teemed with 90s-inspired looks reminiscent of her personal style. Since Moss was an originator of this aesthetic, Stuart Weitzman decided to use her “perfectly imperfect look” as the creative inspiration for the campaign. From her trademark shaggy furs, to fitted blazers, to cut-off shorts, to hip all-black ensembles, Moss’s must-haves are perfect pairings for Weitzman’s trademark boots. The fall campaign showcases in-demand trends, including thigh-highs, lace-up combat boots and menswear-inspired Chelsea boots. Also featured is the brand’s iconic 5050 over-the-knee boot, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this Fall season.

I enjoyed working with Stuart Weitzman again this season to showcase his fabulous fall boots,” said Kate Moss. “Shooting the campaign with Mario is always fun and, with such a great team, it really doesn’t feel like work.”

The international advertising campaign will launch in September in the United States, Italy, France, Canada, Dubai, Germany, Spain and Asia. Outdoor advertising (billboards and kiosks) will run in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Milan and Paris. Behind-the-scenes video and additional creative content will be featured on www.stuartweitzman.com and in Stuart Weitzman boutiques worldwide. A short film featuring Kate Moss in an engaging multi-channel campaign will also launch in conjunction with advertising to maximize social activation worldwide.
