^AHAHAHA! No, not too clever or nice to look at. It's really wierd I looked through my old clothes from when I was little and there are jackets and shirts with little dogs and patches with a little girl on it. I know exactly what you are talking about. It is extremely sad when it is for older women and those two piece jogging sweats sets with pictures and words spelt wrong.

Thank you to who ever posted the last batch of HK street style pictures and the Vogue party ones. You have single handedly restored my faith in HK style. I have rarely seen stylish people like that, that roam the streets of HK but maybe I'm just going to the wrong places. I have no reasonable explainations but I hate FOB style. I HATE IT. It is awful. baggy shirt, baggy jeans, sneakers and a over the shoulder bag.

Question: Where are the nice fakes in HK sold? Not the LV ones but Marc Jacobs, or the Fendi Spy?

First of all, I am chinese myself, I revere the chinese history. I didn';t come to Canada til age 10, my roots is still chinese, I embrace it and am pround of it.
But when it comes to fashion, I just can not defend my people anymore, I do not even want to defend them. I think they just embrace the young look too much, to a point that is pathetic, vulgar, sick, tacky, fugly. Accoriding to what my friend who went back to BeiJing(capital) this summer told me, veryone on the street wears bright colors, regardless age, they just want to look young! They just do not take it the clever way, they do not realize that the too youthful look can age you by contrast extremely. Also lots or majorities are japenese/korean scene wannabes, equilvent(sp.) to hipsters, indie, or scene kids WANNABES in western culture. They also think black is the ugliest color on earth. I am not lying.

^ I think that's a bit harsh, alot of asians yes....they can be quite OTT but to declare all Chinese pple living in Beijing have no fashion sense is a bit exagerrated!

Well, that's what my friend told me, she also said that, those that looks more aesthetically pleasing just simply wears the straight leg jean, puma/adidas/nike shoes/bag/tshirt/accessories uniform. I might go back to ShangHai next summer to visit family members, so I'll see what is like over there, but I do not give much expectation.

The people on the last page look like those candybar dolls you can make on the net! Maybe it's not high fashion style, but it's not like just regular people anywhere really follow trends and design to the extent of people on this website. At least these people look colourful and interesting, I've seen some pretty fugly and skankily dressed people in Canada and I would take colourful and interesting over them any day.

^ I'm not a mod to tell, but celebs fashion doesn't belong to street style.

bleh, I prefer european streetstyle to korean...in korea everyone kind of gives off the same vibe even when they're wearing different clothes..they look very similar, with this particular LOOK..the older teens would be wearing very dressy and ladylike stuff, (lacy blouses, chiffon skirts, boots, pearls, dangly earrings)and mix-and-match a LOT..the good thing is though, there is hardly any trashy/slutiness, everyone takes it very seriously not to dress trashy..while the younger teens are into cartoonish stuff mixed with casual wear(mickey mouse t-shirt with ripped jeans)..also PLAID is such a big trend for younger teens, its like almost everyone has a plaid jacket, plaid blouse, shirt, plaid SOMETHING..!
