How not to please Chinese customers - Global Times
As Chinese continue to develop into a major force for consumerism, more brands have realized the need to please customers in the Chinese market and design products especially for them... However, it seems that something has gone terribly wrong with most products made for the Chinese market. Especially since 2016 is the Year of the Monkey and many brands have totally screwed up related products.

As if that wasn’t garish enough, a giant fat baby’s head from traditional Chinese paintings is on the insole. Which means I have to step on a poor baby’s head every time I put on my shoes.

Although these elements do indeed originate from Chinese culture, they look like Nike hired some farmer as a designer. The most common complaint among netizens is that the shoes follow a “village style.”

This entire shiny design just makes me feel bad, not just because it looks terrible, but also because it made me realize that’s how Westerners must think of most Chinese people’s ideas of beauty - like we are some rich country bumpkins who struck it rich overnight and want to decorate ourselves with gold and jewels to show off our wealth.

QueeringStyle: Clothing labels you should checkout!

Some time ago I posted a guide on 9 Androgynous clothing labels. As I researched more and more, some of them had things happening, others were just not happening at all, other links simply didn’t exist. So I put together this list of queer, androgynous, LGBT oriented, dapper featuring brands that I love and follow.
