Overt sexiness has always seemed a bit out of place on Chinese girls themselves and on billboards throughout the country. Her appearance on the most recent cover of Vogue suggests Tang Wei is set to become everyone’s new fashion sweetheart.
An old star of Stylites, Tomasz Sajewicz, the leading Polish broadcaster in China, has now transferred down to Shanghai, where he is leading the media relations team at the Polish Pavilion at the World Expo. He was up in the capital for the weekend.
Well, here’s yet another beautiful stylist outside of Lane Crawford.
Ran into this young lady again. Next door, Vogue was putting on a shopping event in cooperation with several brands that have presences in Sanlitun Village.
I ran into Gia, the female lead from the former band Hang on the Box, once again and asked her a few questions this time.
gia(王悦）是个音乐人及艺术家。她是前著名女子摇滚乐队hang on the box主唱。
Who did I encounter at the electronic music festival but this sweet pair of designers?

Artist Andy Mo is now handling art at d-lounge. You can still catch the exhibition he most recently curated.
在Intro电子音乐节上碰到了艺术家吴建安(Andy Mo). 他现在在北京做与艺术相关的工作。你可以在这里看到最近他负责策展的在五月中旬结束的展览。

Organized by Acupuncture Records, Beijing’s largest outdoor electronic music festival, Intro, was at D-Park in 798. There were a larger portion of foreign attendees than at indie-focused Strawberry Festival.
Hermès is going to launch a Chinese-designed, Chinese-manufactured “affordable luxury” handbag brand “Shang Xia” (up down) this coming spring.
I guess giving the “Best Uniforms at the Expo” award to Italy is not exactly a shocker, especially given that they are designed by Prada.
The fabrics were a little bit too techno for me – I often find this with Prada – but the color and pattern matching is quite memorable. I will talk more about the Pavilion itself later, but Italy deserves to do well in the China market after such an effort. Having the backing of such major fashion houses helps of course.
He had this shirt custom-made of this cotton in a traditional pattern.
It was interesting that I happened to meet him as we were passing this painting.
