CHINA — Luxury French house Chanel has postponed plans to restage its Métiers d’Art show in Beijing in May due to uncertainty over the coronavirus epidemic.
“Considering the current situation and following the guidance of Chinese authorities, Chanel has decided to postpone its project of a replica of the Paris — 31 Rue Cambon 2019/20 Métiers d’art collection in May in Beijing to a later and more appropriate moment,” the house said in a statement on today.
“Chanel is monitoring the situation closely. At the foremost are the health and wellbeing of its teams and clients,” the high-end fashion house added.
The collection was initially shown at the Grand Palais in Paris on Dec. 4 and was scheduled to travel to China before another showing in London on June 4 at Old Billingsgate, a 19th-century Victorian building overlooking the Thames River.
