S.T.A.R.S. Concept Store
It’s no secret Beijing has reinvented itself as a global style mecca in recent years. From the stellar homegrown apparel of Vega Zaishi Wang,
to Nicolas Favard’s
dazzling handcrafted jewellery, to international big-hitters like Tom Ford
and Stella McCartney
joining the fray, it seems there’s simply no sating the Chinese capital’s thirst for all things fashion. But with so much on offer, and, let’s face it, far too little free time to spend pounding the pavement, it certainly helps that one BJ boutique is bringing the crème of international style to customers from its charming Doujiao Lane digs.
SiTouAiRanSe (S.T.A.R.S) is not only a one-stop shop for some of the world’s most sought-after clothing and accessories brands, it also doubles as a gallery space hosting rotating works by local and international artists as well as installations, pop-ups and art exchange events. In the whitewashed and pale wood-lined space, shelves overflow with the edgy, modern silhouettes of Jeheen Sheen’s menswear, Pringle of Scotland’s sorbet-hued women’s apparel, the dramatic graphics of Jeremy Scott, E.Tautz’s sharp tailoring for gents, plus Gareth Pugh, Martinez Lierah and more. Once your outfit is sorted, accessorise with a pair of Moo Piyasombatkul’s wildly popular ornate sunglasses and you’re ready to face the Beijing fash-pack. Vogue!
