DIRECTOR’S CUTS: This year’s Berlinale, the 59th Berlin International Film Festival, will have extra sparkle thanks to its new co-partner, Tesiro. The international jewelry company and diamond processor, part of Belgian Eurostar Diamond Traders, will offer an exclusive Berlinale loan collection during the film festival, which runs Feb. 5 to 15. The line consists of 50 varied sets of high-end pieces designed especially for the festival including necklaces, earrings and bracelets — around 200 pieces in total. As in previous years, Berlinale sponsors Hugo Boss plan to host a VIP showroom for directors and actors and also supply Berlinale-branded merchandise for purchase by festival attendees. Long-term partner L’Oréal Paris will provide VIP gift bags, supply makeup artists to get stars photo-ready for red-carpet events, and run a make-up studio on Potsdamer Platz between the main cinemas for film fans and passers-by.

SOMETHING OLD…: Pascale Mussard, co-artistic director at Hermès, is in the saddle of a new project: a limited edition range of projects made out of unusual and recycled materials. The items will initially be sold at the flagship Paris boutique on the Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

LONDON CALLING: Azzaro is coming to London — for a month. The Paris fashion house is to open a pop-up boutique on London’s trendy Mount Street on Feb. 21, with a cocktail party to fete the launch of the house’s capsule line by Jemima Khan. For the opening of couture week Monday, meanwhile, the brand will unveil its proper line of bags, consisting of leather and velvet clutch-cum-handbags with crystal closures. Meanwhile, a number of the house’s designs will appear in the French musical “Le Bal des Actrices,” starring Julie Depardieu.
