Vera Wang celebrated getting France’s highest honor–a
Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur–by releasing a short film that both debuts her fall 2017 collection and espouses her lifelong love of Paris.
Wang’s new collection was fittingly inspired by Napoleon Bonaparte. Glamor shots of the clothing are intercut with Wang explaining how her own past as a ballerina and figure skater informed her work as a director.
Yvan Fabling directs the video, entitled “It Was Paris From the Start.” Watch it below.
