now THIS is more like it, the opening of Lane Crawford, beijing style -


the opening of Lane Crawford, beijing.

lane crawford is like the barney's of asia, but far far more progressive in their buys, and pretty insane in their store design. i adore their hong kong store, and to get to go to the opening in beijing? major.

the store had crowds. but you know, the fun kind. with fashion and flash bulbs and stuff:


and peacocks. apparently peacocks are the new retail trend.


and polished fumed wooden stool things. now THIS is my kinda art.


and some of the clothing was on a conveyor belt. conveyor fashion!!


and sara. wait. she came with us.


that big ball in the background? inspired by the disco ball in madonna's last concert. not kidding.


tim and the lovelier and lovelier silvia:




sofia, our new cult object of adoration:



the after party



richard is gonna kill me for that pic . . .
