Chanel Showcases “Sabai” Style in Bangkok With Pharrell Williams, Tilda Swinton

BANGKOK–“Sabai, sabai” was the phrase of the day as Chanel brought its most recent cruise collection and restaged it in Thailand, a celebrity-laden affair among a week of special activities for its VIP clients there who’ve powered the market to one of the house’s top ten globally.

Model Farida Khelfa noted with dismay that hers was half wiped off. She has a role in Jean Paul Gaultier’s “Fashion Freak Show” at the Folies Bergères, but one that doesn’t require her to be on stage. “I play Dominique, the woman who helped him start in the business when he was very young. But it’s a filmed sequence.”
Sitting next to an elaborate “Tilda and Sandro” drawing, Tilda Swinton discussed the importance of color in her upcoming film, a remake of Dario Argento’s horror movie “Suspiria” directed by Luca Guadagnino out Nov. 2. She plays Madame Blanc, a teacher at the Markos dance academy in Berlin.
“All of us are affected by the colors we wear,” said Swinton, adding that Madame Blanc’s outfits are a variation of orange, brown, gray and purple. “There is a very iconic dress Madame Blanc wears that is just brown, and it made me think that she looked like a tree. When you’re making a
