Coco Rocha's new jewelry benefits others, Karl Lagerfeld makes up new makeup, and Harper's Bazaar is changing it up

Coco Rocha’s New Jewels

Coco Rocha is getting in the jewelry and charity business. The model has launched Coco Rocha for Senhoa, a collection produced together with Senhoa, an organization helping Cambodian victims of human trafficking. After receiving a piece made by the women of Senhoa on her wedding day in June 2010, Rocha said she was inspired to get involved. “They asked if I wanted to partner up with them to do a jewelry line. I designed it and the girls make it and the proceeds go to the girls,” said Rocha.

Comprised of seven styles — two pairs of earrings, two bracelets, one necklace and two body pieces — the collection ranges from $60 to $195, with the exception of one body piece that retails for $995. The pieces are made by hand at Senhoa and beaded with clear, black and multicolored Swarovski Elements (“The girls are perfectionist beaders,” Rocha added.) and made in a distinct chain-link of silver and gunmetal.

Lagerfeld Coming to Sephora

What else can Karl Lagerfeld slap his name on to make a quick buck? Karl Lagerfeld, also known as Sephora’s “Designer of the Year”, has created for the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned perfumery chain a doll in his image, a snow globe and capsule collection of color cosmetics including nail polishes and eye shadows, as well as accessories for the holidays at Sephora. Don’t start searching for them in the states though. They are to hit counters in Sephoras throughout Europe and Singapore starting on Nov. 6.

Harper’s Bazaar Plans Big Changes

After a decade as editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Glenda Bailey is plotting big changes for the magazine and according to WWD, she’s hired Robin Derrick of Spring Studios to help her make them. Derrick, who was creative director of British Vogue for 10 years until last June, will also work with Bazaar’s creative director Stephen Gan on a revamp that will be revealed in the March issue. The title is also planning to increase the trim size and upgrade its paper and cover stock, along with reducing frequency to 10 times a year.

“After 10 years, it’s time to refresh — Stephen and I are looking forward to evolving Bazaar’s design for the next decade and we are excited to be collaborating with Robin,” Bailey said. A spokeswoman said Spring Studios has just been retained, so it’s too early to comment on pending changes.
