After his Paris Fashion Week debut — and his first time in the City of Lights — Kris Wu is making the most of his time in the French capital.
The 24-year-old singer and former EXO star has spent the past few days shopping and exploring the beautiful city, accompanied by a personal photographer and entourage to help document his experience.
“Paris has been great,” he tells website, iFeng (the Chinese equivelant to Mail Online). “It’s my first time in the city and I am really enjoying it… The weather has been really, really great, I didn’t expect it to be so warm.”
On June 2X the star personally invited by designer Riccardo Tisci to Givenchy’s menswear spring/summer 2016 and haute couture women’s fall 2015 presentations, which he says has was inspiring.
“I’m a fan of Givenchy and the show has given me many ideas,” he told fashion outlet WWD of his front row view, where he sat alongside the likes of Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, Courtney Love and Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld.
“I started wearing Givenchy clothes about three years ago and I really like them,” he explained to China’s Sina Fashion. “Back then the trend was stars, which I really like. Now as I get more mature, I wear their suits too. I think they look so I like them.”
For the show Kris wore his usually swept back hair, over his face, a style he says was new to him. “I’ve not tried this hair before, so I’m just trying something new and this is the result,” he adds to iFeng.
“In my opinion we have to be brave in trying new things, be confident and have inner beauty.”
But there is one fashion move he would draw the line at. He laughed, “Honestly, I think I’m pretty brave [with fashion choices]. I’m brave, but for high heels… I think for heels I would leave them alone. Yup!”
During his time in Paris — where he has been staying at the luxe W Hotel Opera — Kris has been spotted shopping at the city’s numerous boutiques (and even partying with supermodel and Empire star Naomi Campbell!).
But it seems his mind is still clearly focused on work. He told WWD that he would soon like to get involved in the business of fashion.
“I would love to have my own line,” he revealed the fashion industry bible. “For me, if I can be a part of the fashion business in China and make it better, then why not? China is exciting right now, it’s connecting globally and there are loads of great local designers.
“The market, I think, between China and Hollywood and the world, it’s all linked up. It’s getting smaller because of the Internet and everything, so I think everything’s possible.”
