Channel Chanel Prefall 2010 Shanghai Fashion Show

Karl Lagerfeld showed the Chanel pre-fall 2010 collection in Shanghai. He used the Huangpu River and the neon-lit skyline of Shanghai as the dramatic setting. To elaborate the collection’s inspiration, Karl directed a film called “Paris-Shanghai: A Fantasy”, starring Jane Schmitt as Coco, Amanda Harlech as the Duchess of Windsor, and Freja Beha Erichsen and Baptiste Giabicon played a pair of young Chinese Aristocrats.

Amanda Harlech impersonated the Duchess of Windsor, and Freja Beha Erichsen and Baptiste Giabiconi played a pair of young Communists, while the convincing Coco look-alike Jane Schmitt dreamed her way from an afternoon nap in her chinoiserie-decorated Rue Cambon apartment through various sequences in Old Shanghai—not forgetting an encounter with Marlene Dietrich on the way.
