    Full metal jacket: China’s anti-radiation fashion

    Anti-radiation dress.

    Being pregnant in China comes with plenty of perks - employment benefits, admiration, and courtesy from otherwise ruthless strangers. Pregnancy also brings with it plenty of worries in a country plagued by polluted air, tainted food, and social unrest. But danger lurks even at home or at work, where electrical appliances emit  radiation. The jury is still out on whether such radiation has any detrimental effects, but mothers in one-child China can't be too careful.

    Homeward bound: China’s luxury scene evolves

    CK Underwear. Less for more?

    The golden rules of selling luxury to China used to be simple: (1) Focus on products that are used in public and (2) make sure there is an obvious link between the product and its price. Such common wisdom was based on a paradigm that saw luxury consumption purely as a proxy for financial means, which, in turn, indicated social status. These rules worked well over the past decade, driving high end retailers to focus on outdoor items such bags, cars, and apparel - plastered with large logos or clearly recognizable patterns. But China's luxury buyers are now developing an appetite for the inconspicuous and refined, opening a door for brands to expand into new product categories and for connoisseurs to serve as guides for China's social climbers.  ...Read More

    Asobio: The brand that came to China, from China

    Asobio. China's genuine Italian brand.

    The world's leading fast fashion brands pin their hopes on China. Many of their products are made, and sometimes even designed, on the mainland, but are perceived as superior thanks to the aura of foreign heritage. China's textile manufactures, for their part, are eager to create valuable brands and take foreign retailers head on. CoBest, a local manufacturer, decided the best way is to follow in the footsteps of Europe's leading brands, literally: CoBest set up a subsidiary in Italy, complete with offices, admin staff, and a small international design team. Asobio, the company's new brand, was then launched in China like a genuine foreign contender, using a penetration strategy similar to that of Zara, H&M, and Gap.  ...Read More
