PARIS — The Seventies revival is about to hit the 2016 Cannes Film Festival in spectacular fashion.
Carine Roitfeld, who has been helping amfAR organize the fashion show component of its annual Cinema Against AIDS gala for the past few years, has titled the 2016 extravaganza “The Disco Collection,” in what she termed “an ode to all-out fierceness.”
More than 30 fashion houses, including Chanel, Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani, Calvin Klein, Diane Von Furstenberg, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Givenchy and Paco Rabanne, have designed outfits inspired by the disco ball.
Models including Irina Shayk, Natasha Poly, Jourdan Dunn, Alessandra Ambrosio, Daria Strokous and Doutzen Kroes will showcase the looks, accessorized by Harry Winston jewels, during the event, scheduled to take place at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France, on May 19.
“This year, we’re inducting five new icons who bring about an air of attitude and 1970s nostalgia: Bianca Jagger, Liza Minnelli, Jerry Hall, Diana Ross and Diane Von Furstenberg — each one of whom has made her own contributions to the glamorous Studio 54 days through music, fashion, or modeling — and for defying what it meant to be a woman during that time,” the fashion editor said.
