Shanghai Tang - New York City, 2010



In New York, a city in which mohawks are considered conformist, you have to work pretty darn hard to turn heads, which is why Mlle B found herself walking down Madison Avenue with a wry smile the day she acquired these beauties. The riot of color combined with sheer scale caught the eye of many a New Yorker that day and who could be surprised? Note if you will, the bag in the top picture which in real life is the length of a small coffee table and even has cord handles running underneath it. A lovely chat with one of the sales associates revealed some other, easy-to-miss subtleties, for example: the building that composes the main design is actually part of the famous Shanghai Bund complex and the letters above it read, from left to right, Shang hai Tang. Also, there's a teeny tiny little thank you printed on the inside of every bag. Nice. Yes, like the shop it advertises, this bag could be looked at again and again and still there would be something new to discover.

  1. The only thing they bothered to change was the rolex replica uk on the dials. The colors themselves do perfectly line up with any particular hour marker, and it is clear if the colors are there to help read the time or just for an aesthetic addition to the dial. I believe this is why replica watches keeps mentioning that the rolex replica watches is for the youngest of children, while the replica watches are for slightly older children. With that said, I think that there is a bit of a missed opportunity here in the design of the dial to be a bit more clever when it comes to actually reading the replica watches sale or helping to combine the learning of various pieces of information such as reading the time, letter and number association. From many customers, we know that it is durable, fashion and so on. As a result, many customers often come back to buy one by one when they have a try. They will introduce their rolex replica colleagues to buy the watch. This is why the replica cartier watch become famous.
