MACAU — Chinese megastar actors Fan Bingbing and Hu Bing arrived at The Venetian casino on Thursday evening for an unusual night that saw the city, known most for its baccarat, roulette and poker tables, host the global debut of the La Perla spring 2018 show.
Usually overlooked in favor of Hong Kong or Shanghai, the former Portuguese colony upped its fashion credentials with the debut of the rock ‘n’ roll-inspired collection, displayed in the main lobby of the casino which had been blocked off to passerbys. The 200-or-so guestlist included model You Tianyi, actress Chen Shu, and rapper Brant.B, who dined at tables running alongside the runway where models such as Natasha Poly sporting bedazzled eyes and slicked-back high ponytails marched to electric guitar riffs.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion

“We are obsessed with Fendi and we want to share this obsession,” said CEO Serge Brunschwig to WWD. @Fendi will be releasing a new capsule collection Oct. 16 centered around the Fendi/Fila logo created by Instagram artist @Hey_reilly. Further proving the logo trend isn’t going anywhere. Link in our bio for more details. #wwdfashion
