Close followers may remember actress Zhou Xun I featured earlier (here). She is the No.1 fashion icon in China now, and was described as “a synthesis of young Coco Chanel and Ballet Troupe Zizi Jeanmaire” by Karl Lagerfield.
As a Chanel ambassador, she is frequently spotted in the label’s signature tweed jacket and quilted bags.
Zhou Xun is my favorite Chinese actress. Her movies Painted Skin and Perhaps Love are my all-time favorites. After fell in love with her movies, I started to notice her personal style.
She actually has become more and more stylish and looked so effortlessly pulled together when she started to date Li Daqi, a well-known stylist from Taiwan. Although they broke up three years ago, Zhou Xun’s style taste kept developing.
What is Bohemian Romance+Cowgirl Chicness+Parisian Elegance? For me, the answer is Isabel Marant!
People say she is the “French Alexander Wang”. For me, her collections are my “Casual Chanel”: if at formal and elegant side, Chanel tweed suits are my ultimate choices, then at casual and relax side, I will go with Isabel Marant. Her collections are fashionable yet practical, feminine yet edgy, casual yet chic.
