They have supported the restoration of Milan’s 19th-century luxury shopping arcade Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and Palazzo Ca’ Corner della Regina, an opulent Baroque palace on the Grand Canal in Venice that was reconfigured as an art space for Fondazione Prada.

Woolmark x Lane Crawford Collection Launched in Shanghai

SHANGHAI — Chinese designer brands Helen Lee and Particle Fever designed capsule collections with a “Sport x Fashion” theme in collaboration with The Woolmark Co. and department store Lane Crawford.
The collections, along with an accompanying campaign fronted by model He Sui, were launched at a Saturday night event at Shanghai’s Lane Crawford store in the shopping street Huaihai Road.
Prior to the event Helen Lee, whose brand has been a mainstay of China’s fashion scene for a decade and was one of the first Chinese labels picked up by Lane Crawford, told WWD that over the past two years young Chinese consumers have been seeking more balance by taking up an active lifestyle and now need the clothes to match.
“In China, people weren’t that into sport, but lately it’s become more popular for people to look for this kind of lifestyle,” she said.
“It’s mainly young people and people caring about their health. Especially in the urban environment, people work really hard and they want to get out and have a better balance in their life.”
It’s a trend that has also been noticed by Lane Crawford, with chief brand officer Joanna Gunn optimistic about the future of the category among Chinese consumers.

NATASHA IVACHOFF
Born in Beijing to a Chinese mother and Russian father, Natasha Ivachoff migrated with her parents and three siblings to Australia in the mid-Seventies.
A 20-year career as a design consultant, including for Australian fashion brands Camilla and Marc and Sass & Bide, Ivachoff moved to Shanghai six years ago and launched her own leather-focused brand, Missy Skins, two years ago.
“Coming here is the best thing I’ve ever done, it’s given me the unique freedom of being able to dream however big I want to and know that, with some hard work and persistence, that can happen,” she said.
Currently designing a main line, including a core selection of machine washable, stretch-leather leggings, as well as a diffusion collection, Ivachoff has been pleasantly surprised by the response of Chinese consumers, with stores online (a Taobao store and also Nasty Gal internationally) and multibrand stores in Shanghai and around China doubling their sales from month to month.
“Missy Skins is recognizable as a brand because we specialize

Shanghai Fashion Week Begins

Shanghai Fashion Week is underway, and here is a look at some of the best shows of the first few days.
CJ Yao
Shanghai-born designer CJ Yao backed up her impressive debut at her hometown fashion week in September 2014 with a commercially appealing fall collection.
The palette didn’t stray far from traditional autumnal tones, with shades of green, burgundy and gray punctuated with flashes of cornflower blue.
Once again, leather was a preferred accent for the young designer, paired with oversized knits and knee length fit-and-flare skirts, as well as pants in both wide and straight leg cuts. The outerwear was a highlight, with deconstructed half jackets sitting jauntily on one shoulder, and coats separated into two pieces, joined at the back with multiple buckled leather straps.
Deepmoss
A markedly European neo-romanticism permeated this collection from Central Saint Martins graduate Dido Liu. Louche silhouettes and complex draping were twin themes. Heavier looks, made up of layers of velvet and stiff collared jacquard coats were juxtaposed with lighter dresses and tunics in patterned silk, often left un-hemmed. Pants came wide-legged in multiple lengths but it was the embroidered and jacquard outerwear that proved to be the highlight.
