Time to Bike

Time to Bike P10302371

While at the Colors Magazine Transport event, I asked some guests how they get around.

Shanghai-based Psydee Yang, who works in advertising, just bought a new Forever bike in deep purple. Now that the weather is cooler, she is hoping to ride it to work more often.

The commute: Subway takes 20 minutes, bus 15, walking 30 and bike 15.

Of course there are several popular styles that rarely make it on to Stylites. Trendy sporty clothing like this is all over the place here in Beijing.

An Aura of Éclat

An Aura of Éclat IMG 51302

I always wish for managers of hotels, bars, and restaurants to have a certain glamour and something approaching a distinct personal style. Joe Ho and Francois Vanvi (above) are the only two hotel general managers I have encountered here in Beijing who look a bit like the hotel GM of my dreams. Francois was born in Paris and grew up there and in Hong Kong. He has been in Beijing for several years and is about to take over the opening of a new boutique property, the Hotel Éclat Beijing, in that new triangular structure called ParkView Green. Recently, I asked Francois a few questions about style and being a GM.

Francois Vanvi原来在北京千禧酒店,马上就要当新开的北京侨福芳草地里面的Éclat精品酒店的总经理。Francois是法国跟中国的混血,在巴黎出生长大但在香港生活了很长时间。他在北京有五年了。

Managing not to Conform

Managing not to Conform Joe Ho General Manager of the Grand Millenium Beijing 1 of 12

Think “Hotel General Manager” and the image of Joe Ho probably won’t come to mind. In Beijing, most general managers of international brand five star hotels are plump European men invariably wearing a boring black suit and sometimes even square toed loafers. The more stylish ones might don an Hermès tie, gifted by the wife. Most surprisingly, Joe is the GM of the Grand Millennium Fortune Plaza Apartments rather than the chicest boutique hotel in town.

Joe Ho,日文名须古家航,中文名何家航,现任北京财富中心千禧公寓总经理,中日混血,早年在美国成长,从事酒店业工作30多年,非常喜好时尚,有设计师般敏锐的流行感知。
