I love this quote by Svante Jerling, P1’s marketing director: “Gucci is out, fixed-gear bikes are in”. He added that “People are building on their own ideas of what’s cool rather than relying on prototype built by brands.” More quotes from Svante in this WSJ article.
Stylites is well-known for street style in Beijing, but p1 is the mega-whale in this category. They have built a massive social network around it. Their retrospective, called “The Great Style Leap” will be at the Orange, in Sanlitun, from Dec. 13 to 19. Here is more from Vocativ on this event and how it blends data analysis and photography.
