For its couture debut, the conceptual Chinese brand Wuyong, designed by Ma Ke, opted for something that looked more like performance theater than fashion, transforming one alley of the city’s Palais Royal gardens into a fashion production chain straight out of rural China. The line went from boxes of cotton seed, greedily picked by Parisian pigeons, to weavers and dyers, and on and on until the final product, modeled by a group of tai chi dancers. The result, made up of naturally dyed and hand-woven pieces resembling functional garb worn by ancestral Chinese peasants, worked as a moment of far-flung fashion poetry.
