Chanel “Paris-Shanghai” Exhibition At Plaza 66 (Photos)

Chinese Lantern-Inspired Exhibition Spaces Include Shanghai-Infused Fashion, Karl Lagerfeld Videos

The world may still be “waiting for China’s Karl Lagerfeld,” but Shanghai residents don’t have to wait for Karl Lagerfeld. Running until July 13 at Plaza 66 (恒隆广场), Chanel’s “Paris-Shanghai” exhibit — which was displayed in Beijing last month — includes enough China-infused sights and sounds to please even the most seasoned Chanel devotee.

Composed of three interconnected, cylindrical exhibition spaces inspired by the design of  traditional Chinese lanterns, the “Paris-Shanghai” exhibition kicked off last weekend with a grand opening gala attended by celebrities like actress Chen Yao. Inside each space, visitors can view fashions, accessories and shoes designed for last year’s Chanel Metier d’Arts show on the Bund, along with video shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself.
