An Evening in Paris For Mango’s 60th Anniversary Fashion Show
Tuesday night I climbed the escalators to the top of Paris’ Centre Pompidou to attend Mango’s 60th anniversary fashion show for the Spanish retailer’s autumn/winter 2011 collection. The show began at dusk, kicking off with a video collaboration from Terry Richardson and Kate Moss. The window shades lowered around the runway while “The Great Escape” played out showing Moss and Richardson riding around Paris in a white van, getting ready for an evening out. Moss tries on a number of pieces of the collection—short dresses, blazers, and leather pants—until Richardson finally approves of her look. The film soon became reality as the pair proceeded up the escalators and walked down the mirrored runway to take a seat next to French Vogue’s Emmanuelle Alt. As for the actual runway show, models Aymeline Valade, Mirte Maas, Sigrid Agren and Isabeli Fontana (who will be the next face of the brand) showed off shiny party dresses and chic black evening suits paired with glitzy chain jewelry. The afterparty was at the museum’s roof top restaurant, Georges, which was the perfect spot to sip champagne, take in the scene and listen to Belgian star Selah Sue perform for the party ready crowd.
