Rodarte Gets In The Mood For Maggie Cheung
Chinese actress Maggie Cheung’s bravura performances have earned her the respect of directors like Wong Kar-wai and Olivier Assayas and made her a favorite of stylish girls for years. Among them: Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte. The sisters were in Hong Kong last week to celebrate the launch of an exclusive four-piece collection designed in homage to Cheung, who joined them to host a dinner and cocktail party at Joyce. The one-off pieces themselves were auctioned off to benefit UNICEF, but luckily you don’t need to own them to enjoy them. In fitting tribute to the actress, the Mulleavys created a short film with the Hong Kong-based photographer Wing Shya to spotlight the collection, inspired by four great performances of Cheung’s: from In the Mood for Love, Hero, Clean, and The Heroic Trio. “She is as amazing as the mythical place we were inhabiting for the week,” the sisters said of Cheung and Hong Kong.
