Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

8 of asia’s most glam­orous women at a va­ri­ety of daz­zling lo­ca­tions in our ul­ti­mate cel­e­bra­tion of style. hand-picked by tatler ed­i­tors in each re­gion, th­ese fash­ion mavens talk to na­dine Bate­man and chloe street about cou­ture, ca­reers and ev­ery­thing in be­tween

To be hon­est, I think it’s a great pity when im­pec­ca­bly dressed women in­vest so much time and money in their clothes and then what lies be­neath is, well, dis­ap­point­ing,” says Clau­dia Shaw, the ef­fort­lessly el­e­gant grand­niece of the late Hong Kong me­dia mogul Run Run Shaw, as we dis­cuss the real se­cret of a great wardrobe: great un­der­wear.

In her 19th year work­ing for Chanel, Clau­dia is pro­pri­etor of a wardrobe that, aside from good un­der­wear, over­flows en­vi­ably with items from the French brand. “I feel that my style and Chanel’s are quite synced, so I find it easy to wear their clothes,” says the mother of three, whose look is the epit­ome of un­der­stated Parisian chic.

From day one at Chanel, her re­mit has been broad and fluid—“more of a role than a job,” ex­plains Clau­dia—and has en­com­passed many roles, in­clud­ing vis­ual mer­chan­dis­ing, styling and even act­ing as gen­eral man­ager. Her cur­rent po­si­tion as am­bas­sador and re­gional ad­viser in­volves over­see­ing buy­ing for the en­tire Asi­apa­cific re­gion (which re­quires her to at­tend the buys in Paris six times a year), host­ing in-store events and styling for Chanel’s clients, in­clud­ing some of the big­gest VIPS in Asia.
