“With time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes a silk gown.”
This picture just makes Hong Kong in the fog / pollution we’ve had a lot of lately look so beautiful! And it is true, after a few cloudy days you really do appreciate a crystal clear day.
The picture is from Lane Crawford, a high-end Hong Kong department store… And on the subject of silk gowns… In honor of their 160th anniversary they asked famous designers to “give a new spin to the classic and ultra-feminine silhouette of the Cheongsam.”
Globetrotter naturally took the inspiration to a trunk…
I really want to buy a trunk… I try to say I will travel with it and then it will become an end table, but I can’t quite get up the gumption to do either. But I do love this one, especially the Hong Kong tram lining. And it appears to have a normal luggage type handle so maybe it’s actually on wheels?
