    "Chic ! meets" : Juan Amador - "A potted history" of the Coconut chair - "Rising trends" : Concrete jewellery - "What to do with" oranges ? - "Insights" : Joris Laarman

    "Chic ! meets" : Juan Amador
    This week's creative talent is chef Juan Amador. His penchant for experimenting and his molecular adventures have earned him increasing recognition, but despite this success, he continues to seek out new flavours to stand out from commonplace cuisine. A philosophy he puts into daily practice at his restaurant in Langen, a few kilometres outside Frankfurt.

    "A potted history" of the Coconut chair
    It's the story of an American designer, Georges Nelson who loved to create furniture that was aesthetic, practical and philosophical. All his creations had to embody the idea of progress and modernity. He worked with the greatest names of his era, Charles and Ray Eames, who invented the molded shell, and Isamu Noguchi, who designed the famous Akari lamps. In the 1950s, he had fun inventing two completely offbeat armchairs - the Marshmallow Bench and the Coconut Chair. The idea behind the chair was to reproduce the form of a shell. Georges Nelson took his inspiration from shapes in nature to design a totally curved chair. Moulded in plastic and glass fibre, supported by three small chrome legs, the Coconut Chair met with huge success particularly among wealthy American industrialists. 82 cm high, 104 cm wide, and 84 cm deep, the Coconut Chair embodies simplicity, comfort and mobility. The Coconut Chair today resides in the most prestigious museums. It has become a veritable 20th century design icon.

    "Rising trends" : Concrete jewellery
    Jewellery designers, like Patrice Fabre and Marie-Françoise Rouy are taking their inspiration from increasingly surprising sources, particularly from concrete.

    "What to do with" oranges ?
    We asked top pasty chef Pierre Hermé what to do with an orange, a fruit that is omnipresent in Spain. Especially for Chic, the Parisian pastry chef concocted an exceptional dessert.

    "Insights" : Joris Laarman
    You've probably already heard of the young trio of Dutch designers, the Demekersvans. Today we meet their neighbour in the workshop next to them in Rotterdam - Joris Laarman, another design prodigy. Like the Demerkersvans, he was noticed at the Endhoven design school by the great priestess of trends, Li Edelkoort. The young man's talent carried him along... and he earned immediate recognition. Blending poetry and experimentation, Joris Laarman's objects and pieces of furniture have already become design classics and are now on display at major international biennials.

    An exclusive deep dive into the secrets of creation behind the House of Boucheron and its perennial modernity for over a century and a half. Today, the two women at the head of the company are rethinking luxury by proposing creative and innovative collections, far from the traditional codes of high jewelry.

    It is in the heart of Paris, on Place Vendôme, that the world’s greatest jewelry Houses sit across the legendary Ritz Hotel. The very first to set up shop on this iconic square at the end of the 19th century was Boucheron. High jewelry dazzles and fascinates the whole world, elevating jewels to the rank of works of art, and passing down wellkept trade secrets.
     
    This documentary offers an exclusive look backstage at the creation and development of the collections – which over the years have established Boucheron’s privileged spot among the most modern high jewelry Houses in the world. Today, a duet of women upholds this tradition of innovation, by designing exceptional jewels, as poetic as they are technologically innovative: Claire Choisne, Director of Creations and Hélène Poulit-Duquesne C.E.O. From Claire’s first intuitions, nourished by inspirational travels, to the first drawings and models, she often lets her creativity run wild, doing away with commercial security. Then, these ideas are materialized thanks to the unique know-how of the research and development teams, the goldsmith’s workshops, and the involvement of specialists whose professions are sometimes a far cry from the world of fine jewelry, such as a member of NASA or a “petal artist”. On all floors, at the Place Vendôme workshop, teams of mostly women are at work – but also all over the world – to obtain the most beautiful stones, with a real ethical and ecological concern about their origins. Once these unique pieces are completed, marketing enters the stage to publicize the collections, which are intended to be “genderless” – for both men and women. Modern and trendy jewelry. This exclusive deep dive into a refined artisanal process allows us to fully understand that there are no hard limits to the possible achievements of this tirelessly creative spirit. One that, collection after collection, reexamines luxury and reinvents high jewelry.

    They learned how to play tennis in one of America’s most dangerous ghettos... became world n°1 and world n°2 in singles and forged an unparalleled record. As African-American women, who are sculptural and powerful, and embody new codes, the Williams sisters navigated through sexism and racism, became world icons, and changed tennis forever.

    A New York summer night. An overheated stadium full of people. The stands are packed, feverish, eyes focused on a face in tears. That of Serena Williams, in the middle of the court, as she bids farewell to the world of tennis after a record-breaking career  In her speech to the crowd, the greatest player of all time, choked with sobs, addressed her 15-month older sister, Venus: "I wouldn't be Serena if it wasn't  for Venus. So, thank you Venus. She's the only reason  that Serena Williams ever existed." From the stands, Venus is looking at her little sister, as she has always done since they started playing.
     
    With this sentence, Serena sealed her destiny to that of her older sister. Serena, 40, and Venus, 41, have dominated the world of tennis for many years, breaking all records, building an unparalleled record of success... and breaking the color barrier in the sport and in an America plagued by racism. Born into a poor African-American family, cradled in the culture of the ghetto, and fed on their father's mantras of confidence and nerve, Serena and Venus landed like two UFOs in the muffled world of tennis. The two teenagers would challenge the entire system with the freshness of their youth and an acute awareness of their strength. As both sculptural and powerful Black women, self-confident, displaying codes that were never seen before, they would crystallize the divisions tearing American society apart. But together, they overcame the sexist, classist and racist remarks, the broncas of the public, the mistrust of the other players, the contempt of tournament organizers, the sarcastic and biased comments of journalists. United, they would not only bring women's tennis into the modern world, but would also become global icons.

    The Versace empire as you have never seen it before! Uncover the success story of the most famous Italian fashion house through the incredible story of the siblings who created it. In the Versace family, glory and tragedy are intrinsically linked.

    At the end of the 1970s, Gianni Versace founded a small family business, that in just a few years would become a gigantic “haute couture” empire. While his older brother managed the cash money, his sister Donatella helped backstage as artistic director. At the height of his fame and fortune, Gianni was suddenly shot by a serial killer in 1997. At that time, everybody thought that this sad event would sound the death of the house of Versace. But like every Italian saga, the blood tie would prevail. Despite her immeasurable pain, Donatella fought to take back the reins of the house and managed to assert her legitimacy as she has ensured the prosperity of the family business.

    The exceptional success story of today’s most famous fashion designer, told through 10 years of exclusive archives and backstage footage of his latest fashion show. Jacquemus’ magnificent catwalk scenographies flood the press and social media. Worshipped by international stars, he is often compared to Jean Paul Gaultier in the 1980s.

    At only 33, Simon Porte Jacquemus is the founder and artistic director of his eponymous brand Jacquemus – still independent and not owned by any large luxury group. We first heard is name in 2015, when he won the LVMH Jury Prize. His mini bag Chiquito, the width of a credit card, has been a bestseller since its creation in September 2018. His message has remained the same since the beginning: create clothes for liberated women, sexy women. His cabin of models is mixed-race, he is one of the first designers to leave curly-coily hair unstraightened, and he refuses models who are too skinny. And yet in 2022, his turnover reached 200 million euros, which means it has doubled from the previous year and is said to reach 500 million euros by 2025.
    While following the preparation that precedes his next show, the film also retraces this incredible French success story. In the footsteps of this contemporary fashion genius: from the creative process and how he works with his teams, to the heart of a fashion show in front of an exceptional star-studded crowd: Vincent Cassel, Dua Lipa, Angèle, Sophie Marceau, Pamela Anderson, Victoria and David Beckham, among others...

    The Jean-Paul Gaultier Couture show by Olivier Rousteing from Balmain marks the meeting of two of the greatest contemporary fashion designers. A 360-degree view of the creation of this exceptional collection, which will go down in fashion history.

    Since Jean Paul Gaultier's last show in 2020, the Haute Couture collections of the House are assigned to a different designer each season. The French fashion house has announced that Olivier Rousteing of Balmain will present the next couture collection in July 2022.
    Jean Paul Gaultier and Olivier Rousteing belong to very different generations but share many common inspirations: military style, sailor clothing and a certain taste for flamboyance. It is therefore the reinterpretation of codes that he already knows well that Olivier Rousteing will undertake for the preparation of this fashion show. Follow Olivier Rousteing throughout the creative process: his first sketches, his rediscovery of the Gaultier archives, the first fittings. Finally, you are invited backstage to the catwalk, traditionally set up at the Maison's headquarters on boulevard Saint Martin and at the heart of the VIP entrance. Not to mention an exclusive interview with Jean Paul Gaultier himself, to get his take on the talented Olivier Rousteing's interpretation of his legacy.
