Former Hang on the Box frontwoman Gia (Wang Yue) is working on a tee-shirt brand called Bad Taste (more from the Global Times).

She was at the launch of Lane Crawford and Modern Weekly‘s ‘A Plus’ exhibition, which features collaborations between China’s fashion designers and international artists.

A Real Dashilar Resident

A Real Dashilar Resident P10401731

“Real” only in the sense that she actually lives there now. This young lady who goes by the name Moon-D on Weibo is neither a typical nor a long-term resident of Dashilar. Only in Beijing for about two years, she moved into the historic neighborhood a few months ago, attracted by the central location, vert low rent (around USD 100 a month – though her place lacks a private bathroom and kitchen), and attractive environment. Part of a rock band, she describes herself as one of the few “artsy” people living in the area. She also says Design Week was probably the first hip, cultural event to take place there.

After seeing Super VC at nearly every party, I finally got to see them perform at Hermès’ J’aime mon Carre event. I guess Hermès did a good job pitching their brand to younger buyers through this campaign. Bassist Zhen Yang (left) has been on Stylites many times.

我终于看到了果味VC的演出。这次是给爱马仕。甄洋(左边)已经在Stylites很都次。

Fur Hat Season

Fur Hat Season P10306512

It is upon us. It’s nice to see that more Beijingers are finding hats to be stylish these days. In the past, the spectacle of people in giant, grotesque, puffer coats going hatless was always amusing.

我很开心最近更多的时尚一点的北京人愿意戴帽子。原来我一直觉得看到很多人穿着特厚的羽绒服但不戴帽子有点好笑。

Pang Kuan Smashing an Apple Monitor

Pang Kuan Smashing an Apple Monitor food pics 1 of 1 51

If the Creators Project had a climax, for me it was the smashing of an Apple monitor by Pang Kuan (庞宽), keyboardist and singer for New Pants, at the climax of the song “‘Sex, Drugs, Internet”. Judging by the visuals on the LED behind, the smashing had something to do with anger related to sex and the internet, but it seemed an ironic act at a project showcasing the meeting of design and technology. Though I like the music, the visuals were the main highlight of the show for me.
