Lanvin invited fashion bloggers and the pop star Jiayi to livestream the event, resulting in over 5 million views
Spotted: During Paris Fashion Week, Lanvin collaborated with video platforms Douyin, Yizhibo, iQiyi, and luxury e-tailer Secoo to create a cloud fashion show.
The brand also invited fashion bloggers and boyband UNINE’s Jiayi (嘉羿) to livestream the show’s behind-the-scenes action under the hashtag #lanvin云秀场 (#lanvinCloudBasedRunway), resulting in over 5 million views.
Beyond its new clothing, Lanvin’s latest handbags – which are inspired by everyday objects like takeaway boxes for cakes – peaked on Chinese social media, starting conversations and helping direct a younger audience to the brand.
More impressively, the collaboration experimented with VR, allowing customers to experience a rare front-row view. Viewers were also able to shop virtually at the BFC flagship store in Shanghai by instantly connecting with sales associates on WeChat.
