Just look at the runways at China Fashion Week SS ’10. I encountered this young lady in the subway on the way to the Qi Gang show, where big cats were in evidence. But this was not the only show immersing spectators in themes from the jungle and Beijingers these days seem never to get enough leopard scarves, flats, bags, neckties and jackets. Is leopard “classic” now like blue and white stripes or gray herringbone?
Notice that this is one of the first times that I have broken my usual rule of steering clear of those with brand names visible. Yes, I am a member of that snobbish and reactionary anti-logo crew. They should be paying her to carry a bag that is an advertisement in itself.
