Giorgio Armani and film director Jiang Wen toast new collaboration
The Italian designer and Chinese filmmaker celebrate in Cannes
Working with art director William Chang and film director Jiang Wen, the new adventure-film will be set in Shanghai in the 20s and see Armani's unique style throughout. The Italian designer provided costumes for the lead characters played by Ge You, Shu Qi, Zhou Yun, Wang Zhiwen, Wen Zhang and director Wen himself.
"I am so pleased to cooperate with Jiang Wen, one of the most outstanding filmmakers and actors in China, on this movie," said Armani, "I have always been fascinated by the Eastern metropolis of Shanghai, for its unique style and charm, from the past to the future, connecting the East and the West."
This isn't Armani's first time in the film industry, as he most recently supplied costumes for The Wolf of Wall Street. Gone with the Bullets is set for release in China on December 18 and will reach international screens by January.
