The collection, which Wang originally showed in Paris during the S/S 2014 shows in September 2013, included over a dozen China-specific looks – which are now available for purchase. Wang, who reportedly nabbed the job at the Paris-based design house following Nicolas Ghesquière’s departure thanks to his connections to China (he grew up there), says he sees a lot of potential growth in China. Moreover, according to Balenciaga’s president and CEO Isabelle Guichot: “The competition is getting crazy [in China], so it’s really about targeting the customer very, very intimately.” And it seems this is something Paris-based Céline is focusing on, as well. The LVMH-owned brand, which currently stocks in shops located in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and a number of other cities in China, is planning to show its Fall/Winter 2014 collection (see it in its entirety here) to China’s fashion elite this week. Creative director Phoebe Philo and CEO Marco Gobbetti will both be on hand on Thursday. Stay tuned …
