Where: Sanlitun Village is a “shopping village” located in Beijing, China. This large village is home to the Japanese based retailer Uniqlo, Adidas, and many, many other retail stores. Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. When I first saw the glittering, multi-colored, facade I thought about all the clothing with the large, flat beads layered like fish scales.
Wear: For Miuccia Prada’s Fall 2011 collection, many of the models walked down the runway while the lights reflected brilliantly on the large paillettes sewn onto the skirts, jackets, and dresses. All of beads where a vibrant shades of oranges, yellows, and reds. So in honor of November, I had to blog about these two designers.
Outfit: So, you’re lucky enough to shop at a Uniqlo? Or perhaps browse the largest Adidas store in the world? Keeping with the fall theme, throw on some colorful pants, comfortable wedge boots, and top it off with a cozy waistcoat.
