As I mentioned before, China is such a diversified country, so is Beijing, its capital city. It’s fascinating to peek at what Beijingers are wearing in their daily life.There are several major fashion trends concurrently taking place in Beijing. Among them is… Beijingers are trying to find a new way to express their fashion statement by embedding a touch of China to their look. They aspire to incorporate traditional Chinese style to the modern ensemble.
As we can tell from this picture, it’s the retro school day look. The red ribbon is called “ Hong Lingjing” in China, which is mandatory to wear during elementary school, because it’s regarded as symbolic of the Chinese national flag.
The red pants, the Feiyue shoes(which is a local Chinese brand) and the haircut, all of them carry the association of 80’s China and patriotism. The retro look is back in vague now.
Here I also want to introduce a boutique located in Sanlitun Village, BNC. The owner of the boutique is the Chinese media guru, Honghuang, and the BNC has gained a wide range of media cover nationally and internationally, the New York Times has featured it months ago. What is special about BNC is that it’s carries multi-brand pieces which can rarely be found elsewhere and is an ideal destination to shop for lines of genuine Chinese designers. The selection is of high quality which is under scrutiny of Honghuang. Beyond outfit, it also sells knick-knack of special design. So, if you are in Beijing and are looking for something unique for yourself or gifts for your friend, BNC is a perfect alternative for you.
