ISTANBUL — Signaling its growing interest in the Turkish market, Chanel showed its Byzantine-inspired pre-fall collection in the old capital of that fabled empire Thursday night, the audience reclining on divans sipping Champagne amid the oriental decor of the Ciragan Palace on the Bosphorus.
Kirsten Dunst, Elodie Bouchez, Cécile Cassel, Burcu Esmersoy and Belcim Bilgin were among VIP guests. Dunst, who wore Chanel couture to collect her prize for best actress at the recent Cannes Film Festival, explained her affection for the brand: “You can wear two dresses from Chanel and they look totally different, but they still look like Chanel.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
