Beijing Street Style
WWD hit China for street-stalker style Q&As with what they call Beijing's hip young crowd to find out about their shopping habits. Some interesting answers:
Name: Gong Xin Age: 24 What are your favorite brands?: I love CK, Armani and Ferragamo. And I just bought these jeans from Mango, which I also really like. They cost [$95]. What celebrity style do you like the most?: Nicole Kidman. She always looks so sophisticated.
Name: Song Ling Age: 23 How would you describe your style?: Cool and unfussy. You don't see a lot of women with short hair in China, but I don't like to look too girly. Who are your style icons?: Faye Wong and [the character] Carrie Bradshaw. I've seen every episode of “Sex and the City” — it's really popular here. She has a great sense of colors and a totally unique look.
