Chanel Paris to Rome 2015/16 Visits Beijing
The Chinese capital plays host to one of fashion’s most anticipated shows.
Is there nothing the Kaiser can’t do? For his latest Paris to Rome 2015/16 Métiers d’art show, he brought a little piece of Rome with him to Beijing. This isn’t only the first Chanel show to be held there but is also the first time a fashion house and social platform WeChat have collaborated on a show.
Amidst a black and white old-school backdrop of Paris, the show saw models walking through and around film set café terraces and fountains. The idyllic Beijing setting was transformed into a black and white movie set where celebrities, guests and models all partied to grooves by supermodel Ming Xi, Chinese actor William Chan and Bai Baihe.
As always, the Chanel show delivered on star power. Chanel ambassador Kristen Stewart rocked a signature edgy look in a strapless leather dress and kohl-rimmed eyes, while Descendants of the Sun actress Song Hye Kyo channelled gamine chic in a printed blouse and A-line skirt from the label.
