EXCLUSIVE: Chloé to Show Resort Collection in Shanghai on June 5

PARIS — Chloé is heading east. The French fashion house plans to unveil its resort collection in Shanghai on June 5, marking Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s first personal appearance in China since being appointed creative director in 2017, WWD has learned.
“It’s the first time Chloé is staging a catwalk show outside Paris in the history of the house,” said Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, chief executive officer of Chloé.
While it will also mark the first time Chloé shows a pre-collection on the runway, de la Bourdonnaye said the event was a one-off, for now. “It is not a strategy to necessarily stage a show for the pre-collection. It was more: We want to do something special in China for the Chinese Chloé girls,” he explained.
The resort season has become an important showcase for luxury brands, with houses including Chanel, Dior, Prada and Louis Vuitton staging major shows. Ramsay-Levi was in Shanghai in January to draw inspiration for the show, said de la Bourdonnaye, emphasizing that the idea originated with its local team.
“One-hundred percent of the Chloé organization in China is Chinese,” he noted.
It’s an important distinction in the wake of the recent cancellation of Dolce & Gabbana’s planned tribute to China last November, which

China’s New Wave of Designers to Watch in Shanghai

SHANGHAI — China’s consumption power has left an indelible mark on global retail, but could its creative potential rise to that same level of impact? The jury remains out, but many attempts are being made, none more visibly than at Shanghai Fashion Week.
The event returns Wednesday and figures as China’s best place for fashion talents to showcase their collections and do serious business.
“I expect to see new creative directors to come out from this group in the near future,” said Burak Cakmak, the dean of Parsons School of Design. “In recent years, Chinese fashion designers have proven their creativity’s global relevance through the recognition they are getting at international prizes and during global fashion weeks.”
“They truly believe in what they are doing, and are not led by trend, established designers or even the market,” said Angelica Cheung, editor in chief of Vogue China. “For them, design has nothing to do with nationality, gender or age, but to express the vision. I think that’s what makes their works convincing to worldwide audiences.”
Influencer Susanna Lau, better known as Susie Bubble, has been attending Shanghai Fashion Week for the last few seasons. She had a new appreciation for what’s happening there. She said,

Gucci’s ‘No Longer/Not Yet’ Exhibition Bows in Shanghai

SHANGHAI — Creative director Alessandro Michele, along with a phalanx of local celebrities and fashion followers, celebrated the opening of the Gucci-backed art exhibit “No Longer/Not Yet” on Friday evening.
The exhibition was the joint brainchild of Michele and co-curator Katie Grand, the founder and editor in chief of Love magazine. The two started throwing around ideas for a group art show examining the idea of what contemporary means in terms of time, place and product of past and future after Michele’s first women’s wear show as Gucci’s creative director.
“I really believe the only thing we have is [the] now, this is true in fashion, but it’s also true in life,” Michele said of his inspiration for the exhibition’s theme, prior to the opening. “In fashion, people are very focused on the future…but I really love to talk about the present. The future is not so interesting for me because the future doesn’t exist. I am really focused on the contemporary.”
The result is a carefully curated, almost fairytale world, presented in Shanghai’s Minsheng Art Museum. Divided into eight rooms, each features the work of a different artist.
Though the art at times relates back to Gucci’s identity as a fashion and luxury

Shanghai Fashion Week Showcases Chinese Design Talent

Shanghai Fashion Week kicked off October 13 with a roster of increasingly consistent designers from China showing spring collections. Along with the rise of an independent design culture in the country, a change in both the retail mind-set and consumer desires has simultaneously increased the number of stores and boutiques willing to take a chance on local talent.
A few short years ago, a very different crowd populated the fashion week tents located in the city’s upmarket shopping district, Xintiandi. Today, buyers from across China — as well as some from overseas — are joining media and other industry players. The event’s higher profile is also in evident outside the tents, where interested onlookers peruse the parade of street style and scalpers sell tickets to the shows.
Here are some highlights from the spring 2016 collections.
Fake Natoo: Beijing-born Zhang Na showed a breezy, casual Fake Natoo collection for spring, opening her show with a series of white cotton shirts, trousers and shirtdresses — worn loose and sometimes layered. While the lineup lacked the drama and gravitas of her fall outing, slinky full-length silk dresses and wide-leg jumpsuits hanging from barely-there crisscross spaghetti straps were a highlight.
The designer also increased her use of prints
