Red Carpet Clobber
How To… Dress for the Shanghai International Film Festival
With the glittery Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) bringing lights, cameras and red carpet action to town from 17 to 26 June, we share top tips for getting kitted out in style. Get ready for your close up!
Men in search of dandy attire should visit Tony the Tailor, known for smart Savile Row-style suiting. Using fine imported fabrics from England and Italy, nimble-fingered Tony can whip up custom shirts, trousers, jackets, suits or tuxedos in less than a week. For swagger footwear to match, hit up Jack Peng, who specialises in bespoke Euro-leather shoes (orders can take up to 10 days to complete). Finish off your look with chic accessories, from silk scarves to cufflinks, at luxe men’s and women’s fashion and lifestyle emporium Shanghai Tang, famous for combining trad Sino motifs and apparel with contemporary flair.
Women can source made-to-measure couture from Chinese-American talent Han Feng, who splits her time between her Shanghai atelier and NYC. Signature frocks involve intricate pleating, bold colour and sculptural volume, with abstract flower and bird patterns adorning scarves and bags. Born in Milan, Italian concept store 10 Corso Como is your best gal pal when it comes to stagger stillies and heels, as well as hand-picked global fashion, jewellery, beauty booty and glam bags. Refuel at their cafe/patisserie. For more one-off designer accessories, as well as retro womenswear from Europe and the US, wrap up at Lolo Love Vintage, guaranteed to polish off that look with pizzazz. How’s that for red-carpet ready?!
