Wearing what one might describe as a 19th Century Ulster coat in a modern fabric, Edmund is a freelance writer based in Shenzhen. He was at “I Love XXX”, the Cosplay event that Hotspot magazine organized yesterday night. I suppose Edmund was thinking of Sherlock Holmes. Here on Tom.com are photos of less interestingly dressed, but more celebrity guests at the event.

At the “I Love XXX” opening tonight, here is K’ Yu a Fashion Editor at Hotspot magazine, taking inspiration from Catholicism. The theme of the party and the artwork were something along the lines of Cosplay, a Japanese shortening of “Costume Play”. More on this in posts tmw.
Just got some more photos in from the Tianjin Snow Polo match. Gao Xiang is a rich man in Tianjin who came out to see what polo and the real-estate development by Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club were all about.
A blast of cold meant the furry hats were out one last time. Tonight it is expected to snow, but the horrible heat of summer will be here in no time. I already miss winter.
Stick to this type of gun! This young man was visiting the White Dagoba with his parents.
One thing impressive about the Snow Polo event in Tianjin was the number of foreign media. There were both freelancers and foreign correspondents. Tomasz was representing the Polish media.
This is how people should dress to watch a Snow Polo match.
Notably hipsterish among all the nouveau-riche guests, Wang Peng came to the snow polo event as the photographer for my magazine. The construction project behind him – always surreally visible from the polo – are what most viewed as the main reason behind the event. The Polo Club is the first completed segment of a USD two billion plus project that will bring to Tianjin a new Central Business District and high-end residential area with villas and luxury apartments.
I spent the weekend at the Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club for the first snow polo match ever in Asia. The event was a great chance for China’s luxury-obsessed new wealthy to strut their stuff. The guest list included members of the Tianjin Municipal Government, including two vice mayors, various business and land owners from the city, and members of the international and domestic press.

I ran into Dominic Johnson-Hill by the Opposite House in Sanlitun. He founded one of Beijing’s most acclaimed tee-shirt boutiques, Plastered 8. One of my favorite websites, Nicely Made in China, has an interview with Dominic.

Red and gold may very well be the official colors of China. The East is Red but it also likes its Gold and this is reflected in Leica’s special Limited Edition camera made to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.
The typically sedate Leica MP has been given a makeover with every conceivable metal part plated in 24kt gold, and the body encased in red calfskin. Certain parts of the camera and lens are engraved with select quotes of Chairman Mao and also features an image of Tianamen Square.
Supplied with a classic Summilux 50mm 1.4 lens, this camera is priced at 199,900 RMB and is limited to a run of 60 pieces.
这款徕卡MP，通体将每片可能出现的金属片都镀上24K金，其它部分也由红色皮革包裹。相机和镜头的部分空间，雕刻有毛主席语录，以及天安门广场的图片。配备经典的Summilux 50mm 1.4镜头，限量60台，这款相机的价格为199,900元人民币。
This image of Jeffrey, me, and Miuccia Prada is making the rounds on Weibo, China’s Twitter. Now it seems to have ended up on Linkchic.com, a major Chinese website. This page predicts that blue will be a major color for spring. Wearing a medium-blue suit from Senli and Frye that I have owned for several years put me well ahead of the curve. Jeffrey’s recently made silk suit is also from Senli and Frye and Ms. Prada is wearing one of her own creations from the latest collection.这个图片已转发了很多次在微博. 现在这个网站的流行趋势叫“愈抹愈蓝”也用了这张图片。 我和jeffrey的西服都是Senli and Frye 做的。
